    Again, it is not 107 tornadoes, like I said before, it's 107 tornado reports, the actual number could be less than that. Many tornadoes may have been reported multiple times along the same path, so we won't know exactly how many actually did occur for a while.

    What part of London were the houses in?

    Our snowstorm arrived during the night as expected and we ended up with 11 inches of snow in Apple Valley. We also had lightning and thunder early in the snowstorm.

    Looks like Indiana/Eastern PA has main tornado threat today.
    That's 107 tornado reports, the actual number of tornadoes won't be known for sometime because w/ long-track tornadoes, many tornadoes have multiple reports for them. And 10 fatalities reported so far.

    There were three rounds w/ yesterday's outbreak as far as I saw. The first one was the storms in SE KS which headed on off toward central MO. The second round was further up north. One of those storms dumped hail on Lawrence, KS (the university had to cancel classes for today) and in the Kansas City area, including the Springfield Ill. tornado. The third round sparked off the cold front in KS and off the dryline in NE OK. The Springfield Ill. storm had a classic hook echo radar signature on it. There were three other storms in MO as well that had hook echoes on radar. Sedalia got hit atleast twice, once by a tornado, once by a thunderstorm w/ large hail and may have been hit a third time by another storm. There was also a half-mile wide wedge tornado in NE OK, the likes of which you definitely wouldn't want to see barreling towards you at night. A local station storm chaser chsed the storm that produced that tornado and sent back shots of the video he got, and man, it was huge, could only be seen when lightning flashed in the background.

    Here we go again, round 2, and it doesn't look too good:

    Major tornado outbreak very possible, given enough surface heating, ample wind shear and moisture. Long track tornadoes are also very possible.

    EDIT: Two PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) tornado watches already in effect:

    Already some cells in SE KS headed on off to the NE.

    We had a brief thunderstorm around MSP at 6AM this morning that didn't amount to much. We currently have a Winter Storm Watch for Sunday night and Monday morning for possible 6" to 8" of snow. This will be our biggest snowstorm of a winter season that hasn't given us much snow.

    Well lets hope no one gets hurt. We have kind of weird weather here too, while its not severe, we've been getting snow and thunderstorms all over the place here. T-storms happen a few times a year, but the snow is really rare.

  • Severe weather outbreak/violent tornadoes possible today

    Well, the severe weather season has had an early start this time, w/ baseball sized hail in OK the other day. Today, it appears that strong to violent tornadoes are possible in AR and MO and again tomorrow.
