Threats

Widespread severe weather is not expected over the next seven days. A cold front may bring a better chance for strong storms early next week. I’ll keep an eye on that.

Baldwin’s Severe Weather Concern

Any strong storm that develops will be very isolated and short-lived.

A cold front may bring the risk for a few more stronger storms to our region by early next week. I’ll keep a check on this.

Weather News

It’s no secret among storm chasers that this year has been very scarce for tornadoes. In fact, the big tornado that hit Tennessee in early March is the worst tornado of the year thus far for the US. The map below shows how many tornado watches have been issued across the country this spring. The darker the shading, the more watches that have been issued. Notice the absence of any watches for many areas of the plains and Midwest. Quite incredible! I think the most amazing fact is that there hasn’t been a single tornado watch issued this spring across much of Kansas, Colorado, and western Oklahoma. That is truly incredible.

You all have a great day!
