Severe storm, tornado season cranks up
Poll: When will D.C. area see first t-storm watch
After a quiet start to the spring severe weather season, more than 30 tornadoes ripped across the Plains on Thursday with more than 100 severe reports altogether. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) expects the severe threat to continue today into tonight, shifting several hundred miles to the east.
This same system will affect the D.C. area this weekend, especially on Sunday. Depending on the ultimate track and strength we may be looking at our first respectable severe weather setup of the season -- though likely in a significantly more benign state than seen in the south-central U.S. yesterday or today.
...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING OVER PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST TX...NORTHERN LA...MUCH OF AR...NORTHERN AND WESTERN MS...AND WESTERN TN...
...REGIONAL SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK INCLUDING THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG TORNADOES IS POSSIBLE TODAY OVER PORTIONS OF THE LOWER MS VALLEY...
It's just a matter of time until severe weather catches up with us here in and around Washington. What's your prediction?...
