Hi everyone,

Just putting this out to make sure everyone in the affected areas is on alert and not caught by surprise.






A low-pressure system will charge eastward from out of the central states and tap moisture returning northward from the Gulf of Mexico. This combination of ingredients will set the stage for severe thunderstorms with possible tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail from late Sunday into Sunday night over portions of the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. At this time, the greatest tornado threat appears to be located over eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, northern Louisiana and northern Mississippi. A strong, long-lived tornado is possible. For a full look at the tornado threat, see our TOR:CON tornado risk index page at this link.

Thanks for the warning kdog, and this was originally posted in the Tornado Watch 2012 thread by member RN311. Since he logged off, a severe warning like this best have it's own thread.

It's amazing they can sense this coming. I checked on wundermap and can't really see a thing yet. But it can develop very quickly, when the conditions are right. And apparently, the conditions are right.


And what really sucks for me, is it's headed my way!

Yeah..this is probably part of the storm system that just dumped 18 inches of snow on me earlier this week that moved on and dropped south. If it's as stormy as it was snowy....look out if you live in that area!

Thanks Kdog! I watch the tornadoes around here carefully. Took the kids for a walk today and we saw bees, heard the frogs, and filled up the bird feeder. The feeder was swamped when we got back from the walk with Blue Jays and several other cute birdies. This weather has been strange and I just keep waiting for the cold snap to attack and freeze my budding trees.

Tornadoes in January are certainly not unheard of but still catch people off guard non the less. Eyes to the sky tonight fellow ATSers.

Thank You kdog, I had no idea there was a special weather alert.
Unfortunately, I live in one of the "red" affected areas.
The wind is really blowing out there!
and it is unseasonably warm. Not a good combination for Texas.

Thanks all!

Spread the word to those you know in the affected areas.

It will be hitting us about midnight tonight.

Just last week we got hit with 5 small,but still damaging tornadoes.

This is winter,not spring.

I'm starting get worried that this upcoming tornado season could be the worst we see yet!

We have had several of these in the last few weeks...we will wake up and it will be 20F by night it's in the 60's and thunder storming. About a week ago it was a pretty bad storm over night..so warm the next morning and then freezing by night...weird.

How far south is this supposed to drop? I'm in the Houston area and it is a little windy today. I don't expect the dust, but will the storms drop this far south and if so about what time.

Fair warning for those in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas: The wind in west Texas is screaming straight from the west, and when I say screaming, I mean gusts over 65 mph, sustained over 40 mph. Whenever this occurs, it sets up an ugly scenario for those to the east, for when our dry extreme winds meet the moisture-laden low and winds from other directions, you have a set up for violent weather.

Take care, y'all, and keep up with your local weather forecasts for any warnings.

Perfect ingredients for super storms...very dangerous. Everyone in those areas, plan accordingly. Candles, battery radios...loose outdoor items/furniture put away or lashed down before it gets to you.

Georgia had a round of T'storms yesterday(1-21) with some strong winds, hail and a couple of torpedo warning but nothing really intense. From what Iv gathered we will have a slight chance early Monday morning for T'storms if the warm front makes it up this far right now 50f east winds at 12mph and drizzle not the right climate for storms thanks to the wedge. For the Folks in the mid south (Miss. AL. Ark. Tenn.) keep an eye to the sky and a ear to the ground


Edit to add.....If any one hears the spring peepers(frogs) really keep an eye out.

Im not an expert, but it looks like the main threat will be to the east of Texas today. With the primary area being mississippi, alabama , tennessee and eastern arkansas.
