SW MO. here....it's in the air, storms brewing here now, it seams. Not far from Joplin...
Haven't checked the news, but just the thermals from the temp changing so rapidly, cold air/warm ground, the wind is almost blowing up....if thats possible, it's going to drop from the low 70's without a cloud, "I actually got farmers tan today from it" to 30ish in the next few hours, and its getting dark too soon. Clouds are thick, and ominous, rip snortin ice storm...is not out of question....oh hooohhhhh...maybe just maybe a snow nado, 250 MPH paint strippin, ice tornado.....yee hawwww

A snow-nado.....Holy cow....Missouri does get it all. If people would stop and check out the environment more, they would be able to sense a change for the worse, as you are doing today. I spent the first 40 years of my life in California, so when I moved out to Texas, I was out every day checking out the changes, feeling the changes in the humidity, air pressure, winds, etc.

If an EMP from the sun takes out our weather satellites, we'll have to go back to weather forecasting the old fashioned way.

i'm in central texas and it's been really windy all day and i think the forecast was for a lot of wind tomorrow too. we aren't going to get any storms this week but i feel a big one coming soon. i'm not too worried about my house (unless a tornado hits it) but i worry about my chicken coop! i REALLY need to reinforce it's roof and i need to build more shelter for my 2 goats (i'm in the city but i love animals). ugg.... i need a handyman. i have too much to do and not enough time to do it in. the weather here is more and more unpredictable (except i can predict it will be hotter than hell this summer).

You know, we haven't had much of a winter here in Texas at all. Last winter was so freaking cold, I've never been that cold in my life. This winter, only a few cold days, nothing severe, and very dry. The drought continues!

However, you may be right about a big one fixing to hit. Maybe in March, or even April, but I don't think we're out of the woods yet. There is supposed to be a lull in the La Nina pattern, and either it will pick back up again, or switch to El Nino. My money is on La Nina picking back up, and us having a miserable, hot, dry summer like you said.

In that lull is where we may get slammed upside the head. Only time will tell.

Straight-line winds are preferable to a tornado, of course, but when it hits 80 mph in town, all sorts of things will be flying around (fences, tree limbs, loose yard furniture, signs, somebody's trampoline), and semi-trucks tend to blow over on the interstate. Hunker down and keep safe!

Already sighted some strong T storms on the radar and tornado warning. Winds are very strong as the low pressure sucks air in to it. Accuweather radar



Temperature difference is extreme!


Got a tornado watch box near Wichita KS

Yikes!! Stay safe, in any case.....is the tent rated for baseball sized-hail? Big hail scares the tar out of me. I imagine being caught out in it would be like being stoned to death, minus the insults in Arabic.


My dad once told me that he met a man when he was young, who was permanently stooped over. Seems he had been caught out in the open with his son, by a bad hail storm. He laid down on the ground with his son under him. Sad story, but he did the Real Man thing.

BTW, I goofed in my earlier post - I'm in SE New Mexico.

I hope we don't see a repeat of last years
tornado outbreak. The temps are extreme,
that isn't good.

Albuquerque, new mexico here. Winds here hit 55 mph gusts. We had old glass windows at my work break from the strong wind hitting them. Roswell New mexico had a top gust of 75 mph.

This is a pretty cool site to watch weather online. They have live streaming vid from chasers as well. Won't do much good with the dark, but their radar is good too.

I am from Alabama and I was stationed in New Mexico at Cannon Air Force Base. I know exactly what you are talking about! As a matter of fact, our meteorologist are saying that Friday is supposed to be severe to extreme. I live within 8 miles of where the big tornado came through North Birmingham last April. It was truly amazing at the scene afterwards. Hopefully, this doesn't happen this Friday, but I think it is going to get nasty. Thanks for the heads up OP.

Im in Mid-Missouri and there have been warnings all day, it was mid 60's this afternoon, but the warning is for slight chance of tornado, and large wind gust all through the night.

Its been especially windy for the last 2 days.

Im keeping a heads up for sure, as this is around the time that tree branches starting flying into my house.

Keep safe all!!

Peace, NRE.

Oh crud. The dreaded "triple point" seems to be forming, and yes, those temperatures are too extreme, especially for the end of February. Strange, freaky weather! Thanks for the visuals.

I am sure they know. It is supposed to storm tomorrow evening. Mainly, it will be straight line winds coming in around 3 pm. Then Friday, it might get pretty bad.

Here is heads up, as I am getting prepared for this one.

Be careful guys!! You never know what this! Nature runs this place, and sometimes we get a reminder!




Peace, NRE.

i'm 42 and i've never EVER had a pipe freeze until last winter. luckily it was just a small part of one and i managed to thaw it (connected to my washing machine and the laundry room doesn't have an air vent - lesson leanred... leave the laundry room door open when it gets below 20). not only that but i lost several potted plants when the temps dropped in the MIDDLE OF THE DAY. i totally didn't see that coming. plants fine in the morning but by 3 pm all frozen.

i have a tornado phobia... i'm already anxious about this "spring".
