The tornadoes always seem to hit the fancy houses of the rich or the trailer parks of the poor.

I have a feeling it's gonna be a bad spring and summer.

Forecasters: More than half of state faces enhanced risk for severe storms; 'potentially strong tornadoes' possible



A system set to move through Arkansas on Friday and into Saturday will bring the potential for severe storms across the entire state, forecasters say.

Portions of western and central Arkansas, including Little Rock, face an enhanced risk for storms to turn severe, the National Weather Service said.

In those areas, the primary threats as of Wednesday will be large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes.

“Confidence regarding specific hazards will be available closer to Friday,” the weather service said.

The agency’s Shreveport office said that “potentially strong tornadoes” will be possible Friday in its coverage area, which includes southwest Arkansas.

Behind the system, cooler air will be in place — marking the third instance of warmer weather followed by tumbling temperatures in the past three weeks.


Near-freezing temperatures are forecast in Northwest Arkansas on Saturday morning. The remainder of the state will likely be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

At the start of next week, temperatures Monday will again be near freezing in northern and western Arkansas.

The weather service advised residents to take precautions and protect vegetation as well as pets from the cold.

In addition to the severe weather threat, the state’s southeast half could see up to 6 inches of rain between Friday morning and Saturday evening.

This is horrible :sad:

http://host.madison.com/wsj/weather/gigantic-storm-to-pummel-wisconsin-all-weekend-see-what-havoc/article_39334f46-638a-5f80-9958-d446e66eb8d8.html

Gigantic storm to pummel Wisconsin all weekend. See what havoc is expected and where.

The biggest April storm to hit the upper Midwest in years is bearing down starting Friday, and could wreak havoc in parts of Wisconsin if forecasts hold true.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm watches and warnings for a good share of the state except for Madison, Milwaukee and counties toward Illinois, with up to 15 inches of snow in northern and central Wisconsin and up to four-tenths of an inch of ice in counties just north of Madison expected.

Friday is starting out on a stormy note west of the Madison area, with thunderstorms and strong winds hitting Iowa and southeast Minnesota.


Locally, Madison could see over 2 inches of rain from this storm, with the chance streams could rise and cause flooding later in the weekend.

27 Storm Track meteorologist Branden Borremans said numerous showers and a few thundershowers are in the forecast Friday, with rain and thunder continuing Friday night, and winds gusting up to 40 mph at night.

The Weather Service said Madison should see rain and more rain Friday and Saturday, before the rain starts to switch to a rain/snow/freezing rain mix on Sunday.

Little or no ice accumulation and less than 2 inches of snow are expected in Madison, the Weather Service said.

To the north, conditions could be much worse. (yup :smash: )

A winter storm watch has been issued from Saturday morning to Sunday evening in Columbia, Dodge, Sauk and Green Lake counties, with the biggest danger coming from accumulating ice on trees and power lines.

"Power outages and tree damage are possible due to the ice," the Weather Service said. "Travel could be dangerous and nearly impossible."

Up to 4 inches of snow in those counties will be blown around by winds gusting up to 45 mph.

Farther north and west, conditions are expected to be terrible.

Severe travel conditions are expected in west central Wisconsin, and northern Wisconsin could see up to 15 inches of snow, and the La Crosse area could see up to a quarter-inch of ice Friday night into Saturday along the Interstate 90 corridor.

The storm is expected to move out of Wisconsin by Sunday night, setting the stage for quiet weather on Monday, with sunshine and a chilly high of 39.

I'm north of Green Bay. We got freezing rain last night and snow this morning requiring the plow trucks to come back out. I've been hearing the wind whipping by my apartment all day.

We may see more gusty winds causing big snow drifts. What a pain in the ass.

I can sit this out in the apartment and I'm right across the street from a store if I need anything, but I'm a little freaked out. I understand late season snow can happen in the northwoods area here, but this just upgraded to a BLIZZARD WARNING.

I feel like Winter Reset and we're getting the whole season again, but all in one weekend. I just hope I don't lose power. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:


...BLIZZARD WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CDT SUNDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Blizzard conditions. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph will
cause whiteout conditions in blowing snow. Significant drifting
of the snow is likely. Additional snow accumulations of 8 to 15 :eek:
inches are expected.

Crazy stuff man. We're on the southern edge of all that crap, so we'll just get clipped by that disaster with minor snow Monday and temperatures 25 degrees below average.

What a mess. I'm sick of it and I have no idea what work will be like Monday.

(WLUK) -- Blizzard Evelyn is breaking Green Bay records. It is now the largest blizzard since 1889, and the second largest of all time.

A Blizzard warning continues for Brown, Outagamie, Door, Kewaunee, Oconto and Marinette counties, ending Monday.

Very heavy snow, very strong winds, significant blowing and drifting, low visibility, and terrible road conditions continue through tonight.

Wait, so it’s the second biggest blizzard of all time. Not for April, but all time?

A
s it stands right now, this will be the second-highest storm-total snowfall on record in Green Bay coming in at 23.2" of total snow. We haven't seen a storm producing this much snow since the late 1800s.

We have also blown past our record monthly snow for April in Green Bay, now sitting at more than 35" of snow. Second place is less than half this month's total.

It's weird I've been to this places like that Walmart in Green Bay all the time on the way to our terminal.

I'm sure we're all aware about the volcano eruptions in Hawaii by now.

Here is blue fire its now causing because its burning methane from the vegetation.





A sight to behold but so very sad and terrifying for the residents.

Not a disaster but we've been getting bizarrely cool days for months in deep south Texas. It snowed more than it has in 117 years this past winter and were breaking low temps records all the time.
My stepdad is 79 and he said it's never been like this. He's convinced something is wrong, he also mentioned several birds and insects that have been here since was a boy have vanished in the last few years. There was something about it in the local news too.

In the North East, we get a day of 80 degrees and the next it's 40 degrees in the morning with a high of 55. It's been a miserable spring and lots of rain.
