Today looks to possibly be a very bad day for weather across parts of midwest/south.

Potential for severe storms with damaging winds, hail, lightning and a tornado or two...

I am in western Kentucky and keeping an eye out today, Iowa got hit pretty hard.


Stay safe.


weather.com...


A second round of widespread severe thunderstorms will erupt in parts of the Midwest and Southeast Friday, following Thursday's tornadoes in Iowa, and straight-line wind damage in Kansas and Missouri. At least two destructive tornadoes ripped through the central Iowa towns of Bondurant, Marshalltown and Pella Thursday afternoon. Strong straight-line winds from a line of severe thunderstorms lead to a deadly capsizing of a tourist boat on Table Rock Lake, near Branson, Missouri.

Stay safe, we had some storms come thru yesterday in central and east IA. Pretty cool, yet terrifying, video of 2 tornadoes not too far from where I live.

Torcon 5 is out...


this could be ugly.

weather.com...



Friday - Friday Night Main threat area: Parts of the western Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley and Mid-South region. Main threats: Clusters of thunderstorms, including some supercells, will likely develop with damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes. Tornadoes are most possible with discrete supercells in the Mid-South region to the Ohio Valley, but cannot be ruled out as far north as southern Lower Michigan. Cities: Indianapolis | Cincinnati | Louisville | Nashville | Memphis | Birmingham


I am on AT&T wireless internet and have been extremely pleased with the service because it's not really affected by storms.....I guess I will see how it holds up.

We are getting hammered here in Alberta as well. Severe thunderstorms and heavy rain warnings. Incredible lightning too.

Stay safe everyone wherever you are.

We got rocked in central Missouri yesterday.

LOL - stay well.

I'm in Southern California. A few weeks ago the temperate hit 115 degrees F.

Yesterday - we were at 90 degrees F, overcast (no rain) and thunder.

To say these are unusual events is becoming tiresome.

While any one extreme weather event cannot be 'proven' to be caused by climate change, the pattern of increasing numbers, varieties and locations of these events can.


In 2003, a deadly heat wave struck Europe that would usher in a new era of climate science.

In July and August alone, temperatures upward of 115 °F claimed nearly 70,000 lives.

However, while average global temperatures have increased at a steady clip since the mid-20th century, strong heat waves had been documented from time to time before then. For climate scientists, that meant that attributing the heat wave to global warming would be next to impossible.



So when a team of British researchers used environmental data and model simulations to establish a statistical link between climate change and the heat wave, they got attention.

Though they couldn’t prove that global warming had “caused” the scorcher, the scientists did assert that warming from human emissions had doubled the risk of extreme weather events.

Published in Nature, their first-of-its-kind study launched the new field of “attribution science,” which uses observations and models to tease apart the factors that lead to extreme climatic events.

Here in Tokyo over 3000 people were treated for heat stroke in just one day 3 days ago. Police are still finding dead bodies in homes and apartments. Over 100 people have died so far and today another day in the 90's. Remember we got hit with heavy and deadly rains just 2 weeks ago. Crazy times right now.
The vegetable plants are roasting and now one cucumber is hitting about a buck.

Oregon coast. Sunny, windy, high @67F.


Our little pocket of bliss.

Im in NC and i have seen evidence of haarp clouds like this pattern : ///// it's an unusual pattern i've not seen for months but there' s no way to prove it of course so i may as well be off my rocker but it is curious that this type of cloud formation only comes with sever spontaneous weather .

Tornado watch was up in southern MI (not in my area, though) They dropped it a while back. All we've been getting for the most part is just wind, and the occasional sprinkle.

I'm a little disappointed, I was looking forward to thunderstorms, the weather in MI can get really dull now & then

Overall, this has been a really tame weather year so far.
