    Default A word to the wise.....

    Everyone should keep and eye on the weather early next week. While this weekend should be very nice with scattered showers for some next week we might be in for some severe weather. The system that will be in the middle of the country may make through to our area next week. There should be a massive severe weather event today in the mid section of the country. I look for PDS(Particularly Dangerous Situation) Watches to be issued for them.

    The following are maps from the Storm Prediction Center for the midwest for Saturday.

    Saw that last night on WGN NWO and I agree. I don't know as much about it as you but it looks like given the long line of north and south instability it could get nasty.

    Here is the map for today. It seems that Western Kentucky and those along the Ohio River may see some rain and possible thunderstorms. Northern Kentucky may see much of the same tomorrow. As of now, nothing severe.

    There should be a major tornado outbreak in the plain states tomorrow. We have a niece who live in Oklahoma so I've been monitoring the situation for her. It seems to be very serious situation tomorrow afternoon and evening for that area.

    A tornado came close to hitting the Storm Prediction Center today in Norman, OK. They think it is going to be so serious that they have set up a back up office at Scott Air Force Base in East St. Louis, Ill. This is in case that the SPC gets hit by a tornado or has to be evacuated.

    We are looking to get storms maybe late Sunday or on Monday they will be ahead of the front that will past through our area. Too early to tell how strong they will be.

    I will be praying for them also. I set up a warning announcement for my niece in Elk City and they had a couple of severe thunderstorm warnings last night no tornadoes yet. It appears that today will be quite eventful.

    I just checked the latest model runs. As of now the models are showing the storms in Western Kentucky early Monday morning around daybreak. Still there are a couple of days between now and then and things could certainly change.

    sportsfan41, contact your family in OK and let them know that, as I expected, the tornado watch just issued for Oklahoma is a PDS watch. That is the worst one and the NWS doesn't issued them lightly. It looks like it will be pretty bad in the mid section of the country this afternoon and into the evening.

    Please pray for all of those affected.

    What happened to our weather today, nWo? They said it would be sunny and into the 70's. It ended up showery and never got much out of the 50's.

    No, I didn't mean you. I meant our local pseudo-weathermen.

    We have a group from Church leaving tomorrow and spending the week in Joplin to help rebuild from the tornado last year. Any info on this area would be appreciated nWO.

    Joplin is in the area that has a slight chance of severe storm today.

    Preliminary reports are that at least 5 people lost their lives. This total includes two children in the town of Woodword,OK.

    I know I'm tired because the warnings I set up for our niece kept sounding and waking me up. I guess everything is okay with her and her family.

    Gold, I just read the forecast discussion for the Joplin area. They are looking for the instability to increase late this morning into the early afternoon. This should increase the chance for severe thunderstorms. The models are showing the line of storms that is currently making its way to that area will weaken but with the instability of the atmosphere that will be enhanced by the heating of the day they maybe under showing the strength of the storms.
