  • Severe weather outbreak likely today

    Hi everyone.  It’s going to be a busy next few days as a very powerful spring-like storm system brings the potential for  dangerous, destructive weather.

    With temperatures running 20-30 degrees above average and plenty of Gulf moisture available, the ingredients are all there for strong to severe storms across the Southern Plains, Mid-and-Lower Mississippi Valleys.   

    Large hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes are expected from eastern Texas to Mississippi and northward to Illinois and Indiana.  The Storm Prediction center has issued a fairly rare (for this time of year) Moderate Risk area for a huge portion of the south, up into the Ohio Valley, where the highest risk of larger, powerful tornadoes exists this evening into the overnight hours.  

    The threat will shift eastward on Wednesday with strong to severe storms possible from Virginia through the Southeast to the Florida Panhandle and Gulf Coast:

    Meanwhile, across the north, temperatures across the Great Lakes are 25-35 degrees above average, but will be dropping significantly as the cold front pushes through the region.   Look at these temperature differences:

    Freezing Rain in the northern Great Lakes and Upper Midwest will transition to snow as the front approaches.   

    And finally, a system dropping through the Intermountain West and Rockies will bring mountain snow and valley rain to the region.  Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are widespread.

    I’ll be working through Fox Report tonight to bring you the very latest in watches and warnings.   Please be safe if you live in any of the above mentioned regions!

Good grief. You never know what kinds of stupid comments people will make on this blog. (I'm not talking about our regular bloggers.) Just thought I'd check in to cover up the "doctor's" comment. I hope all the regular bloggers are safe and sound. Don, your blogging friends are praying for you. We got up to 63 today. I couldn't really enjoy it though, because I was home sick and didn't get outside. Take care, everyone. Margie

I'm back from Hopkins for a few days. The doctor wants to have another doctor look at the CD rom showing the blockage. I have to call him back Friday. He wants to know if this other doctor will be able to remove the blockage by a laser. If not, my doctor will operate and to quote him "it will me a messy surgery" I asked why they couldn't take my cells and grow a new ureter. He told me they are working on that at Hopkins and have done it on a couple dogs so far. Going back next week.
