South

Severe storms are expected to develop in the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley later today and tonight as a storm system in the Southwestern U.S. taps Gulf moisture and strengthens. Damaging winds, large hail, and a few tornadoes are possible. Locally heavy rain will also become a threat during the overnight hours tonight and early tomorrow in the Ozarks. The threat of rain and severe storms moves east through the Southeast tomorrow and tomorrow night before moving off the Southeast Coast late Wednesday night. Outside of rainy areas, gusty winds are expected today and tomorrow across the region, which could make travel difficult and possibly cause some damage on its own. After a dry day on Thursday, a pair of new systems will bring a chance of rain across the South late in the week and over the weekend. High temperatures today are expected to be well above average, ranging from around 50 in Far West Texas to the 80s in the Rio Grande Valley and the Florida Peninsula.

Midwest

Severe storms are also possible later today and tonight in eastern Kansas and Missouri into southern Illinois, with showers and a few thunderstorms possible in the Ohio Valley. The severe threat will spread through the Ohio Valley and central Great Lakes tomorrow. In addition to severe storms, flooding rain is possible over much of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio beginning tonight through tomorrow night. Further north, a mix of rain and snow is expected over the Northern Plains and the Upper Mississippi Valley today and tonight. After a mainly dry day on Thursday, a pair of systems will bring a chance of rain and snow to the region Friday through the weekend. Highs today will be well above average over much of the region, ranging from the upper 20s in northern North Dakota to the 70s in southeastern Kansas.

West

The storm parade continues in the West, with one system departing today and another moving in. The departing system (which will bring storms to the Central U.S. this afternoon and evening) brings snow to the Four Corners this morning, while another system moves into the Northwest later today and tonight. This next system will hang over the West until Thursday bringing rain and mountain snow to much of the region before moving out into the Plains. Another pair of systems will move into California late in the week and over the weekend bringing more rain and mountain snow to the Southwest. Highs today will range from the teens in the higher elevations of the Rockies and Cascades to the 60s in Southern California and southwestern Arizona.

Northeast

The frontal boundary that brought rain to portions of the Midwest yesterday will bring some light rain, sleet, and snow to portions of the Northeast today. Some light rain or drizzle is possible tonight in the Mid-Atlantic. Rain chances will increase tomorrow and tomorrow night as the system developing in the Central U.S. today will move through the Northeast, with rain in New England and a mix of rain and snow for the interior on Thursday. Another chance of snow moves in over the weekend. Highs today will range from the teens in northern Maine to near 70 on the Delmarva Peninsula.


Remarks: Get ready.

North Dakota will have a lot of snow, already the interstate is closed in one direction.

Texas, severe thunderstorms with tornadoes and 70 mph. coming in the next hour.

http://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=fwd&wwa=tornado%20 watch

Kentucky gets another hit.

Sustained winds of 25 to 35 MPH are likely with gusts of 50 to 55 MPH outside of thunderstorms. By mid-morning Wednesday, a strong cold front will enter the western part of Kentucky and surge east through the day. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will likely accompany the cold front. Damaging winds are likely with this line of storms and winds within the thunderstorms may gust over 60 MPH. These storms are likely to affect the Louisville NWS area between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM EST

Ohio
Severe thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday Afternoon and Wednesday Night as a strengthening low pressure system approaches the region. In addition...a prolonged period of widespread damaging winds will be possible. (severe means hail, cloud to ground lightning and or tornadoes).

The tornado area (and there are several tornadoes in there) covers most of north Texas, Oklahoma, part of southwestern Missouri. That's the system that's moving into the Ohio Valley and heading north and east.

France is still under the grips of snow and severe weather too.

updated 3:22 p.m. PT, Tues., Feb. 10, 2009
PARIS - Some 600,000 homes lost power Tuesday after a violent storm with winds reaching nearly 90 miles per hour knocked out electricity across a wide swath of western and central France, the country's electricity distribution authority said.

The storm also disrupted travel for thousands of passengers scheduled to fly through Paris' airports, which closed for 14 hours overnight in response to the gusting winds.

The storm also disrupted travel for thousands of passengers scheduled to fly through Paris' airports, which closed for 14 hours overnight in response to the gusting winds.

Heavy rain and gale-force winds in parts of southern England also caused flight disruptions there, as well as road closures and train cancellations. Some areas recorded close to their monthly average rainfall for February in just 24 hours.

Heavy snow hit regions further north in England and Wales, leading to road and school closures and power outages.

I don't want to start with my end times rant; but there is something that is more profound than all these other weather events that has happened.

The head of the Russian Antarctic Expedition denied on Monday media reports concerning an emergency evacuation of the Russian Antarctic station Vostok due to an extreme rise in temperature. "Don't believe them. I am writing an official denial that will be published on our website," Valery Lukin said on the phone from St. Petersburg when asked to comment on the reports. However, Lukin confirmed that a number of personnel had been transported out of the region. "This is a scheduled operation and not an emergency one. This was to be conducted in this timeframe, because the ship was unable to wait," he said, adding that 23 staff had left the station. He also said a cyclone had led to the temperature rising from minus 38 degrees Celsius (-36.4 Fahrenheit) to minus 24 (minus 11.2 Fahrenheit), but that it did not result in an emergency evacuation. Lukin said 11 people remained at the station and would be there throughout the winter. The Vostok scientific station is located in one of the coldest areas on Earth. In 1983, a temperature of minus 89.2 degrees Celsius (-128.2 Fahrenheit) was registered in the region. Maximum temperatures in summer are no higher than minus 21 (minus 5.8 Fahrenheit). For over 40 years, Russian specialists have conducted research of hydrocarbons and minerals, drinking water reserves, medical tests. They have also studied climatic changes and ozone holes. During the Antarctic winter, the station is almost unreachable, so the station's staff are completely isolated for many months. )

Remarks: There are things happening weatherwise and we need to pay attention. Anarctica heating up like that can help more of the ice shelf to break up, and that floods the oceans, which decreases the salinity (because the salt water in the oceans is diluted with ice melt, which causes mammoth storms in other places).

Say gina...

I've lived in the Midwest my whole life. Yes, we've had a few days of record high temps for February.

Last night, there were a few rumbles and all night we had this rather damp phenomena known as rain.

Rest assured, I prepared the best I could...

Look at the red boxes, this is the tornado watch area where they have detected conditions, and the mesos are the mesocyclones which are the columns of air in a tornado. One in Charlotte at 2 pm, the others, Ohio and Kentucky.

February tornadoes are rare in Oklahoma but not unprecedented
The Associated Press

February tornadoes are unusual, even in tornado-prone Oklahoma, but they are not unprecedented.

At least three tornadoes touched down in the state on Tuesday, including one blamed for eight deaths and dozens of injuries.

National Weather Service meteorologist Doug Speheger in Norman said Oklahoma has had 44 February tornadoes since 1950. Only two of those resulted in fatalities, both on Feb. 22, 1975, when three people died when twisters hit in Jackson and Kiowa counties in the southwestern part of the state.

The most recent February twister before Tuesday's spurt occurred Feb. 25, 2000, in Tulsa. The day before, another tornado hit Ellis and Harper counties in western Oklahoma, damaging a hog barn and downing power lines, according to weather service records.

The most recent February twister before Tuesday's spurt occurred Feb. 24, 2000, in Ellis and Harper counties in western Oklahoma, damaging a hog barn and downing power lines, according to weather service records.

"In mid- to late March and going through May and mid-June is kind of when we usually have our severe weather season, when we typically see severe weather," Speheger said early Wednesday.

"February tornadoes aren't terribly uncommon in the southeastern United States, but here in Oklahoma, it's pretty unusual for it to be this early in the year and for them to be this strong."

Last February tornadoes killed more than 50 people in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee.

That outbreak was farther north than most February tornadoes and stronger, Joseph Schaefer, director of the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said at the time. February tornadoes usually pop up near the Gulf Coast, meteorologists said.
