I thought I'd start this thread since there's been quite a bit of activity in the Deep South during this month.

This includes the large wedge tornado that went through Hattiesburg, MS less than a day or so ago.

Hello Folks:

There was at least 1 tornado in North Central parts of Arkansas last evening (Tuesday). An EF-2 twister injured 4 people and caused damage to a cemetery in Kensett in White County. I saw footage of a large uprooted tree with a small (1884) tombstone in the dirt connected with the uprooted trees' rootball! Also a small pinetree limb went partially through a truck's windshield/windscreen.

My area was in a Tornado Watch from ~4PM to 10PM yesterday (we don't often get these type of Watches this deep into Winter), but--Most Thankfully--my area had hardly even any rain, as the cells kept forming to our East & Northeast.
I wonder if this portends a Early, Active & Severe storm season this year?

Kind Wishes & Take Care~~~Wet Snow

Hello Folks:

I saw a Doppler Timelapse (on Higgins Stormchasing)of a long-lived tornado-producing supercell (on Feb. 28th) that started in NE Oklahoma (just barely entered the extreme NW corner of Arkansas) and tracked NE for 571 Miles (919+ Kilometers) before dying just west of Cincinnati, Ohio. This cell put down at least 5 twisters--one of which went through Perryville, Missouri; injuring a number of people and fatal to 2. Not bad for a supercell as we in the NH are still in Winter!
I could not find that Doppler Timelapse on YouTube.
While looking for that Doppler Timelapse vid, I found this interesting vid: Doppler Radar Timelapse For The US For The Entire Year of 2016: This vid lasts for 8:22 and is very interesting. The small circular "ground clutter" in Western Arkansas is the town of Fort Smith, the "ground clutter" in the middle of Arkansas is the capital city of Little Rock.

Interesting video there Wet Snow, some very memorable severe weather events in that lot.

Getting to that time of the year when we're starting to get keen to get back over there for chase season. Heading over a little bit earlier than last year at the end of April and coming home a bit later, all up 7 weeks over there this year so many miles to cover for many incredible adventures no doubt.

You heading over Ozthunder?
