April 20, 2011 started like this on the Accuweather Forum:

Dates will be fixed as we get closer to the event. Models bring a very potent long-wave trough moving into the Central Plains around Tuesday of next week. With the Bermuda high off the east coast we manage to keep southerly flow at the surface bringing in warm-moist Gulf airmass across the entire region, with widespread Tds in the 60-70 degree range, well in advance of this developing system. This is still a week out, but taking a look at last night's 0Z model group, something pretty significant looks to be brewing.

FWIW...a pro met on American just started a threat for approximately these dates and also stated the potential for a major outbreak around this time.

Threw up a little tidbit about this one and the possible crazy May across the Great Lakes. Gonna be a reall interesting next few months that's for sure. Hopefully this year I don't almost get killed again night chasing an EF-4 lol

From the ABC 33/40 weather blog this morning:

"NEXT WEEK: Sure looks like a significant severe weather event is ahead, initially west of Alabama Tuesday, then moving into the Deep South by Tuesday night and Wednesday. Way too early to be specific on the threat, but all of the players are on the field. Best hope for us is for the band of storms to come through during the pre-dawn hours Wednesday when the air tends to be more stable, but I get the idea it might be an event mainly during the daytime Wednesday. See the Weather Xtreme video for details."

If you would like to follow the thread as it progressed to the worst, deadliest tornado outbreak since the 1925 midwest tornado outbreak, here are a couple of links:
