Tornado Warning 530 am - 600am
Heard Newburgh got hit with a twister in downtown ... haven't heard how bad it was, though. One line just passed through here with strong winds and heavy rain, but no damage thankfully.
Harrisburg IL Tornado is reported as a EF-4.
The map from the the SPC is scary with the 45% area.
Tornado warnings are lining up across the Ohio River Valley right now. Just saw a tornado emergency for Clark County, IN, with a tornado on the ground. Stay safe JNA, Gedunker, Hink, and others in the area. Check in when you can. Safety first though. Thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone else in that region.
Spring has arrived! (I think) Today, it was warm and sunny with a high in the upper 60s. The 7-day forecast calls for highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s everyday, with a few chances for thunderstorms on a couple of the days. The warm weather, combined with the time change, will certainly have everyone outside enjoying the weather after school and work this week. There were already tons of people out this weekend. I had to wait in line for dinner on Saturday, had to wait in line at the gun range this afternoon, had to wait in line at the store. On those first nice spring-like days in Chicagoland, everyone just comes out of hibernation!
While I'd like to hope this spring-like weather will continue, I do realize that we're still in mid-March in the Midwest, and Mother Nature can still wallop us with some cold blasts into April and even May. But I'll enjoy the mild weather while it lasts.
Everybody around AA, GR & Big D okay from last night's storms?
It's mid-March in upstate New York, and we've already had the spring peepers peeping. I noticed today that our hostas are beginning to emerge from the ground. It seems way too early. I wonder if we'll have a string of, say, 50-degree days in July and August to make up for the early spring.
