Day 2 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1226 PM CDT Thu Oct 05 2017

Valid 061200Z - 071200Z

...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS SOUTHWEST KS
AND OK PANHANDLE...

...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS KS AND SOUTHEAST
CO TO EASTERN NM AND TX PANHANDLE...

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS LOWER MO VALLEY
TO SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS...

...SUMMARY...
Scattered severe storms are likely from parts of Kansas and
southeast Colorado south across the Texas Panhandle into eastern New
Mexico during the late afternoon and evening on Friday. Very large
hail, a few tornadoes, and damaging winds will be possible.

...Synopsis...
A shortwave trough will amplify as it progresses east from the Great
Basin into the central Great Plains through early Saturday. A belt
of strengthening mid-level west-southwesterlies will accompany this
amplification, becoming centered over the southern High Plains to
Lower MO Valley by Friday evening. Lee surface cyclone should deepen
in the Raton Mesa vicinity with a quasi-stationary front extending
northeast across KS into southeast NE. This boundary will accelerate
southeast as a cold front Friday evening as the shortwave trough and
a Pacific cold front ejects onto the Plains.

...Central and southern Great Plains...
Have upgraded to Enhanced risk and expanded/shifted Slight/Marginal
risk areas west/north.

Rich boundary-layer moisture characterized by 60s surface dew points
will reside south of the aforementioned front. Unlike a typical
widespread severe day in the Plains, mid-level lapse rates should
remain modest outside of the central High Plains. As such, diabatic
heating will be necessary to boost buoyancy and as surface
temperatures warm into the 80s, MLCAPE will reach 1000-2000 J/kg.

Mid-level height falls/DCVA will initially overspread the High
Plains portion of the region, aiding in scattered storms developing
near the surface cyclone late afternoon/early evening. Convective
coverage should increase during the evening east along the KS
portion of the front, and south along the impinging Pacific cold
front over eastern NM and northwest TX.

40-50 kt effective shear and increasingly elongated hodographs with
very strong mid/upper-level speed shear will support several
supercells, a couple of which may become long-track/intense in the
southwest KS to northern TX Panhandle vicinity. Significant severe
hail appears to be the primary hazard, especially given the highly
favorable wind profiles in the hail growth zone. A couple-hour
window will also exist for a few tornadoes. However, somewhat veered
and initially moderate low-level winds should be limiting factors to
greater coverage of the tornado threat. Given the strength of the
forcing within the frontal zones, upscale growth into bowing line
segments appears probable within a few hours of initiation, yielding
a predominant mix of severe wind/hail. Towards midnight, storm
intensity should rapidly wane owing to minimal instability east of
the TX Big Country to eastern KS.

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 354 PM CDT Thu Oct 5 2017

The main interest in the forecast is severe weather potential
tomorrow. This may be the best fall severe weather setup for
southwest Kansas this year (and perhaps the last several years). A
compact mid level potential vorticity anomaly will be at the base of
a sharp trough over Colorado late in the day, and this will induce
low level cyclogenesis just out ahead of it over far southeast
Colorado. Intense low level convergence will develop at the surface
low as well by late afternoon. Initially veered out surface winds
will slowly back to due south, if not slightly east of due south in
a very small area just ahead of the low. This is clearly the area of
greatest concern for the most vigorous severe local storm anytime
after 21z. This could be as far west as the Colorado border,
initially.

All ingredients from available moisture, convergence, deep layer
shear, low level shear, mid level cold advection, etc. are pointing
to aggressive severe storms, including supercells. The most vigorous
supercell storm could produce baseball size hail. Tornado potential
would be greatest early in the event, through about 00z or so, as 0-
1km bulk shear will be about 20-25 knots. Early CAMs runs of WRF-ARW
and WRF-NMM show supercell development at the greatest surface
convergence in southwest Kansas, not far from Dodge City. A
supercell may very well be underway, as mentioned earlier, well to
the west of Dodge City and even Garden City. The main question will
be how long supercell phase would last.

NAM has been consistent with picking up on a local maximized severe threat in SW KS which is right below the low.

Looks like a cold season-like squall event on Saturday. Very strong speed and directional shear, small but sufficient CAPE for a squall.

Day 2 Convective Outlook

1148 AM CDT Fri Oct 06 2017

Valid 071200Z - 081200Z

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE OHIO
VALLEY TO LOWER MICHIGAN...

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE
CENTRAL GULF COAST...

...SUMMARY...
A few damaging wind gusts may be possible from parts of the Ohio
Valley to the Great Lakes region late Saturday into the early
overnight. Additionally, a marginal tornado threat is expected
Saturday night across the central Gulf Coast region, associated with
Tropical Cyclone Nate.

...Ohio Valley and Great Lakes...
A rather potent shortwave trough will become negatively tilted as it
ejects from the central Plains towards the Great Lakes Saturday. A
resultant corridor of strong forcing for ascent will accompany a
cold front sweeping east across the Midwest Saturday afternoon into
the overnight hours. Ahead of this front, surface-based buoyancy
will likely be quite meager, owing to very poor upstream mid-level
lapse rates. Nonetheless, guidance suggests at least a narrow zone
of low/mid 60s dew points and pockets of heating to foster MLCAPE
values around 200-400 J/kg. Considering the strong kinematic field
associated with this system (e.g., 850mb south/southwesterlies
around 40-60 kt), shallow convection may be capable of a few
strong/damaging gusts, primarily Saturday evening into the early
overnight. Therefore, have introduced marginal severe probabilities
from parts of the Ohio Valley to lower Michigan.

...Central Gulf Coast...
The latest National Hurricane Center forecast brings Tropical
Cyclone Nate ashore the central Gulf Coast late Saturday night/early
Sunday morning. Within the northeastern quadrant of Nate, favorable
low-level shear and related helicity should be maximized --
generally from far southeastern Louisiana to the western Florida
Panhandle. In turn, the tornado threat should gradually increase
late Saturday into the overnight as the system approaches the coast.
Have opted not to upgrade to slight probabilities due to the
overnight timing and resultant uncertainty regarding the overlap of
sufficient surface-based buoyancy and any rain bands favorable for
tornadoes.

...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CENTRAL GULF
COAST...

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OH VALLEY AND
GREAT LAKES...

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CENTRAL GULF
COAST STATES...

...SUMMARY...
A couple of tornadoes are possible across the central Gulf Coast
States in association with hurricane Nate. A brief tornado or two
and isolated damaging winds are possible over parts of the Ohio
Valley and Great Lakes late afternoon and evening.

...Central Gulf Coast..
Expanded low tornado probabilities slightly farther north per latest
track of TC Nate.

An influx of tropical moisture and increasing low/mid-level
winds/shear will occur this afternoon and evening, as far north as
parts of southern AL/MS. Transient supercell structures should
develop to the east-northeast of the inner core of Nate with a risk
for a couple tornadoes.

...OH Valley/Great Lakes...
Added low tornado probabilities and considered a Slight risk, but
will defer on a possible upgrade to the 20Z update.


A pronounced midlevel shortwave trough over the central Plains will
accelerate east-northeast to the Lower Great Lakes through tonight.
Surface cyclone over central IA will decay over the central Great
Lakes, but a cold front will continue eastward. A swath of robust
insolation is underway across parts of IL/IN/OH/Lower MI between the
warm conveyor attendant to the front and a tropical moisture plume
preceding hurricane Nate across KY/TN. This diabatic heating should
compensate for poor mid-level lapse rates and yield meager buoyancy
with MLCAPE generally below 500 J/kg.

Ascent along the front will support a band of low-topped convection
late afternoon into evening across IN/Lower MI. Downward transport
of strong low-level flow should result in isolated damaging gusts,
but the lack of a strong surface pressure rise/fall couplet may
mitigate a greater severe wind risk. Scattered storms should form
within the deeper moisture plume over the OH Valley late
afternoon/early evening. Comparatively richer boundary-layer
moisture should aid in a couple supercells/multicell clusters
forming with risks of a brief tornado and locally damaging winds.

Mesoscale Discussion 1701
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0440 PM CDT Sat Oct 07 2017

Areas affected...Portions of far southern lower MI...IN...
eastern/southern IL...western KY/TN...and far southeastern MO

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely

Valid 072140Z - 080015Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...Some threat for a tornado or two and isolated strong to
locally damaging winds may increase through this evening. Due to the
overall marginal nature of the severe threat, watch issuance appears
unlikely at this time.

DISCUSSION...A well-defined upper trough will continue moving
northeastward across the Upper Midwest into the Great Lakes region
this evening. A related surface cold front will develop eastward
across parts of the lower Great Lakes and OH/TN Valleys. Recent
radar and visible satellite imagery indicate convection is beginning
to strengthen along the front in eastern/southern IL. Even with
ample diurnal heating downstream of the front this afternoon, poor
mid-level lapse rates (generally 5.0-5.5 C/km in the 700-500 mb
layer) have greatly limited the degree of buoyancy. 21Z RAP
Mesoanalysis estimates MLCAPE generally ranges from 100-500 J/kg,
weaker with northward extent, and additional increases in
instability are not expected this evening with the loss of daytime
heating.

Even with the limited buoyancy, strong mid-level winds and a veering
wind profile in the lower/mid troposphere are contributing to 45-50
kt of effective bulk shear, which will allow for thunderstorm
organization. A linear mode is expected with thunderstorms
developing along the front, and isolated strong to locally damaging
winds and perhaps a QLCS tornado should be the main threats with
this activity. A few discrete cells could form ahead of the front in
western KY/TN and southern IN over the next several hours within a
low-level tropical moisture plume emanating from the Gulf of Mexico.
Given the degree of low-level shear present across this region,
updraft rotation within low-topped supercells could occur, and a
tornado or two cannot be ruled out. At this time, the weak buoyancy
suggests the overall severe threat will probably remain too
marginal/isolated to warrant watch issuance. However, radar trends
will be monitored closely through the evening, especially across
western KY/TN and southern IN where the best overlap of weak
instability and strong shear resides.

Nothing here but a few sprinkles so far.
Got a broken line about to move through.
Already was a quite breezy day here so won't take much to have high winds mix down to the surface.

Edit: Soon as I posted it started dumping. Haven't seen an actual shower in a long while let alone heavy rain. Even have lightning. Must be Christmas.

The first evidence of damage and therefore the determined start of
the tornado touch down was just west of the westernmost end of
Industrial Drive southwest of Sunman. Two trees were snapped
approximately halfway up the trunks. Further east, at a property at
the western end of Industrial Drive, an anchored mobile home was
pushed approximately 3 to 4 feet off its foundation (up against a
back porch). No visible damage was observed to the siding or roof of
the mobile home. At the same property, two large sheet metal doors
were blown off a barn. No other visible damage was observed to barn
structure.

Further to the east-northeast, a large tree was downed, along with
other miscellaneous limbs near the cul-de-sac of Brick Yard Drive.
The large tree that was downed fell partially through the roof of an
unoccupied home. Other limbs of various sizes were downed on the
property and nearby properties. A very small portion of siding was
partially removed at an adjacent property. On the eastern end of
Brick Yard Drive (approximately 100 feet west of Meridian Street), a
large pine tree was snapped in half. A small tree limb was also
downed just on the western side of Meridian street north of Brick
Yard Drive.

On the east side of Meridian street, just north of Edgewood Lane, a
property sustained fairly extensive tree damage, including numerous
large limbs downed. The tree damage caused the partial collapse of a
garage/barn shelter roof. No visible damage was observed to the home
on the property.

Additional minor tree damage was observed on Edgewood Lane (small
limbs downed). No evidence of any damage was observed from the
easternmost portion of Edgewood Lane eastward through the remainder
of Ripley County until near the Ripley/Dearborn County line
demarcated by North County Line Road. Just on the western side of
County Line Road (and therefore still in Ripley County), a tree limb
was downed and a tractor trailer was partially tipped over (leaning
against a tree). On the eastern side of County Line Road in the same
vicinity (but in Dearborn County), in a wooded area about half of a
dozen trees were sheared off approximately halfway up.

Further northeast, extensive damage occurred to a barn on Kruse
Lane. Although a few walls remained standing, the roof was partially
removed and carried downwind. Power poles on the property were blown
over. The garage of the house was partially blown inward. No visible
damage was observed to the home itself.

Although no tree damage was observed to the immediate east of the
property on Kruse Lane, several large limbs were downed
approximately 500 feet north of the intersection of North Dearborn
Rd. and Fackler Rd on Fackler Rd. No other damage was observed at
any point east and northeast of this location. Therefore, this is
the presumed end of the track.
