Heads up people in the mid to eastern parts of the US.

It seems we have a major system heading our way in a few days,so I thought I would give you a warning to prepare.
It's deja vu,as this happened last year and it devastated a few towns just north of me.








The threat of severe thunderstorms will return early in the week ahead as a strong cold front emerges from the Rockies and intercepts milder air returning to the nation's midsection.

Wednesday Forecast
This pattern will be favorable for thunderstorms to produce damaging winds and possible tornadoes Tuesday into Wednesday in parts of the South, lower Midwest, and eventually the mid-Atlantic region. The maps on this page show the latest timing forecast for these storms from The Weather Channel's Global Forecast Center.

The Key Ingredient: Wind Energy One of our biggest concerns is the amount of wind energy carried by this large-scale storm system. Jet stream winds are forecast to easily exceed 150 miles per hour with this system. But more alarmingly, the winds in the lower atmosphere are also expected to be fierce - potentially over 100 miles per hour just 5,000 feet above the ground in some areas just ahead of the cold front.

That combination of powerful wind energy and an unstable atmosphere - even an only weakly unstable one as we often see in January - can lead to widespread straight-line wind damage. In addition, with such a strong wind field accompanying this system, individual thunderstorms or squall lines are likely to move forward lightning-quick, at speeds of 50, 60, even 70 miles per hour, making quick action all the more important if and when severe weather warnings are issued.
Ultimately, the degree to which warm, moist air can spread north to interact with these potent winds will have a large bearing on the outcome of this event

As always stay safe,be prepared, and keep a close eye on your local weather.

Peace,

Saw this on our local news tonight. They were discussing how it could be very severe, but is still to be determined.
And of course we get snow predicted the following day.

I'm glad it isn't going to be bad here. I won't get to try out my prepping skills but "oh well". I hope it isn't as bad as they say it may be for those in it's path.

Thanks for the heads up!

We had a very similar weather system move through a few years ago. Severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings. It happened during the school day, and we had to keep the kids in the hallway for almost four hours. You can imagine k-2 students, all terrified, in the hallway that long. Luckily, no tornados touched down, but it was a very intense afternoon.

Hope history doesn't repeat itself...

This was from almost exactly 1 year ago.

I fear it will be the norm for the future.

I'm North of those areas, but I stated earlier in another thread, of my astonishment at a drastic temp rise near 60, from my subfreezing norms, in a few days.

I'm smack dab on the line between the red, and dark red. As usual...


It's starting to get pretty windy here this evening. I'll be picking up more straw for the goats tomorrow. We had snotty ice mix Friday and yesterday morning up here. With all the rain I've had the past 2 weeks, I worry about trees having enough anchor in the wet earth. Guess I'll be parked in this thread for a bit....

Here is NOAA's outlook for Tuesday and Weds I'll be smack dab in the middle of it on weds. no bueno,
I hate this kind of weather it freaks me out. Guess I'll keep the munchkin out of daycare and we'll just hang out in the basement that day.

It'll be interesting to see how this develops I've always been interested in weather/ storms I guess I'll use this one as a learning experience. Thanks for the heads up

Yes,it is.
But sometimes people don't know what's coming because of busy live's .
Tornadoes are not a laughing matter if they occur with this storm.
Thank you for your input.

I think the point of this was to give people who live in these areas a heads up on what was coming their way. Not quite sure why this required a sarcastic rude comment about how "it's just weather, it happens"
