Convective Addiction members will be monitoring today as each of the home states for our entire team is under the scope for a conditional threat of severe weather again today, with the main peril likely being damaging winds. A threat for an isolated tornado or two will exist, however, albeit on an even more conditional [...]

Convective Addiction chasers Adam, Brad, Jesse and Skip all were able to document multiple tornadoes across Nebraska during a 2 day chase marathon that saw a number of tornadoes across the state. The tornadoes were the result of an unusually strong cold core like system that slowly moved along, allowing for the 2 day chase-a-thon [...]

A spectacular view of a tornado in northeastern Missouri at night is a rare treat, and getting a decent viewing angle is even less likely. Frankly, I was convinced that this particular severe weather event would be mostly a non-event due to the presence of a strong EML (warm layer aloft that prevents vigorous convective [...]

Another significant severe weather day appears in store for parts of the Midwest and Corn Belt regions, especially over parts of the Middle Mississippi and Ohio River valleys. As yesterday’s system treks eastward, the strong mid and upper-level dynamics will once again coalesce with a very unstable warm sector to potentially yield an outbreak of [...]

All of the synoptic ingredients appear to be coalescing today for a major severe weather outbreak across the Central and Southern Plains, and the SPC has already outlined a high risk for severe weather across the region. Some details remain to evolve, so mesoscale forecasting will be important this afternoon as the event gets closer [...]

This donation will go to help the victims of the horrible tornado outbreak which took place on April 27th of this year. The area is still recovering and in desperate need [...]

Its May!!! Everyone’s favorite month for severe weather [except me.] After an April that smashed records the severe weather junkie inside all of us would think that May would follow along, being the statistical peak and all but so far that has not been the case? The severe weather came to nearly a screeching halt [...]

While much of the focus in the chasing community remains squarely focused on the historical tornado outbreak across the south, and rightly so, there is another major weather event underway. The slow rise of the river along the middle and lower river valleys will create crests that haven’t been reached since at least the early [...]

Convective Addiction chaser Adam Lucio is working on a longer write-up for his chase through Mississippi and Alabama on April 27th. He was able to see the Haleyville, AL EF-3 Tornado: DAMAGE ASSESMENT: HALEYVILLE (MARION/WINSTON COUNTIES) PRELIMINARY DATA… EVENT DATE: APRIL 27, 2011 EVENT TYPE: EF-3 TORNADO OR POTENTIALLY HIGHER (FURTHER EVALUATION UNDERWAY) ESTIMATED PEAK [...]
