Heads up to all those living in the area's highlighted below.




Spring 2014 has been a quiet tornado season thus far, but that's about to change this weekend, if the predicted forecasts that meteorologists are looking at hold true. Weather experts say conditions are lining up for a series of powerful tornadoes to hit an area ranging between Tennessee and Texas from Saturday through Monday. The National Weather Service predicts a "significant multi-day severe event" in the South plains on Sunday, moving into the Mississippi Valley on Monday.

The extreme warnings stem from an interaction between an East-moving low-pressure system over the Rockies mixing with wetness from the Gulf of Mexico. That will cause the creation of supercell thunderstorms, Slate's Eric Holthaus explains, all kept in place in the South-Southwest by a high-pressure system in Canada. That makes the area ripe for a "big severe threat" this weekend, according to The Weather Channel, an extra level on top of today's "severe threat."

Holthaus notes that the best historical comparisons to a weather pattern like this point to some of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history. That includes the April 26, 1991, stretch of tornadoes from Texas to Iowa that caused a billion dollars in damage and included a rare F5-strength tornado. For those in need of a refresher, here are FEMA's guidelines for how to prepare for tornadoes.

I'm in Dallas... that looks troubling.

On the flip side, I work for a storm-restoration company so I generally look forward to severe weather as it makes my job much more lucrative.

So is South Dakota it danger zone of the nados??

Seeing as I'm in the orange on your map...I'll be parked in this thread for the weekend.

Thanks for the heads up. I can always count on ATS for the first word in weather events.

I never bother to turn on the weather channel anymore. It's always some prerecorded show that has nothing to do with weather these days.

Now, off to check generator, batteries and candles. And the fences on my goat pens.

That's why we don't live in Kansas Anymore--- On average Central KS got 100 twisters per year.
Last summer we had an F3 come within a 1/4 mile of the old house south of Wichita.

Here in Western Colorado we supposed to get snow on Saturday. Which totally sucks because I'm chomping at the bit to get this years garden going.

And this means what? The map shown is a map of what is called Tornado Alley. The season normally starts about Feb, and runs until November. Living in this area, tends to have a bit more of a risk of Tornados that will hit the area, so those who live in this area, tend to take a bit more precaution and keep an eye out on the storms in the area.

This is the reason why we told our realtor that even all we got was a cement slab over a basement that was just a kitchen, our house absolutely had to have a basement and a kitchen. We had two tornadoes within 5 miles while we lived in an apartment complex up here. Now, we have a basement.

We are already assembling the TBK - toddler basement kit - for the season.


I grew up in Kansas and this is just a part of life like earthquakes on the coast.

Looks like there's a good chance for the weekend and most of next week. I can't see your map where I'm at right now though.
Stay safe everyone, I'd bet a good amount that there will be tornado producing storms coming up.

Move over Des. I hope you don't mind, I'll be parked right next to you.

This time of year we sleep with the TV on in the bedroom and tuned into the weather channel. If that BEEP, BEEP, BEEP goes off, my clothes and shoe's are an arm's reach away.

Between all the stress I am having with this move, I am keeping the wine glasses right on the counter.

You have to love it.. a regularly occurring Alberta Clipper
is on back order. Let's hold off for a big bowls of Gulf gumbo.

This is never good, and the wait for a 'normal' spring weather
system could result in everything the engineers have done to
forestall the inevitable and usual isobar action over NAmerica
making for a real nasty and overdue weekend wash.
Did I just infer the weather is being manipulated? Yes I did.

And my UPS just gave up the ghost again. I hate batteries....

The ones I really worry about are my folks who are sitting in an ancient pile of limestone (over 130 years) in the country with no clear warning system.

Thanks for the heads up. Going to make sure the cb weather alert radio is charged, and all gear is in place.

Stay safe folks.

For anyone who doesn't know what TorCon is

TOR:CON Value Descriptions

8+ Very high probability of a tornado
6 - High probability of a tornado
4 - Moderate chance of a tornado nearby, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible
2 - Low chance of a tornado, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible
0 - Near-zero chance of a tornado or a severe thunderstorm

The TOR:CON index ranges from 0 to 10. Multiply the value by 10 to get your percentage chance of a tornado within 50 miles of a location. For example, a TOR:CON index of 6 means there's a 60% chance of a tornado within 50 miles of any location in the indicated area.
