Just got up...ready for wild weather


Winds roared last night and continue to roar at 5 a.m. Winds have gusted to 43 mph in my area.

I will be off work and will be storm spotting today.

This just in from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC):

LATEST RUC GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTIVE THAT SUPERCELLS NOW
NORTHEAST OF JACKSON...NEAR THE NORTHERN END OF NARROW
CONVECTIVE LINE...WILL ENCOUNTER INCREASING FORCING IN
EXIT REGION OF A 90 KT SOUTHWESTERLY 500 KT JET STREAK
WITHIN NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS. THIS STILL COULD CONTRIBUTE
TO FURTHER INTENSIFICATION AND INCREASING TORNADIC
POTENTIAL AS CELLS PROGRESS INTO AREAS NEAR/WEST AND
SOUTH OF STARKVILLE AND COLUMBUS BY AROUND 12Z. SLOW
WARMING/ MOISTENING OF THE BOUNDARY LAYER HAS BEEN
OCCURRING ACROSS THIS REGION...
