A series of significant tornadoes impacted portions of the southern U.S. during January 2017, with high-impact tornadoes affecting portions of the southern U.S. during the early-morning hours of the 21st…
One of the more surprising outcomes of L-model development thus far has been demonstrated skill at predicting summer and fall tornadoes in the southeastern U.S. Often times, these tornadoes are associated with landfalling tropical cyclone activity across these areas.
A series of tornadoes moved through northern and central Alabama on March 19, with the most notable of these storms directly impacting the Jacksonville, AL community and Jacksonville State University. Not only did three-month significant tornado forecasts highlight the potential for this activity to occur, but a new 15-day forecast model I’ve recently created also highlighted this potential.
July was fairly active for significant hail in north-central U.S. Concentrations were noted in the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota (near the Red River Valley area), with more sparse concentrations across a broader portion of the U.S.
On May 8, 2017, Denver, Colorado experienced its costliest hail storm in history, with insured losses totaling roughly $1.4 billion (Source: https://www.denverpost.com/2017/05/23/hailstorm-costliest-ever-metro-denver/). The hail, ranging from 1-2.75 inches in diameter, was spawned by a severe thunderstorm that moved northeastward across western sides of the Denver Metro area during the afternoon.
