Default Today May 25

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0956
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1226 PM CDT WED MAY 25 2011

AREAS AFFECTED...ERN IND...NRN-CNTRL OH...SE LOWER MI

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 368...

VALID 251726Z - 251900Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 368 CONTINUES.

A SEVERE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ESEWD ACROSS WRN AND CNTRL OH
THIS AFTERNOON. SE LOWER MI MAY ALSO HAVE A SEVERE THREAT AS A LINE
PROGRESS EWD. WW ISSUANCE REMAINS POSSIBLE DOWNSTREAM OF THE CURRENT
WW 368.

A WELL-DEVELOPED LINE OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IS ONGOING
IN NERN IND AND SRN LOWER MI ON THE NOSE OF A 45 TO 60 KT LOW-LEVEL
JET. THE LINE IS ON THE NRN END OF AN AXIS OF MODERATE INSTABILITY
WHERE MESOANALYSIS SHOWS MLCAPE VALUES RANGING FROM 500 J/KG IN SRN
LOWER MI TO 1500 J/KG IN CNTRL IND. THE STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO MOVE
ESEWD INTO WRN OH ALONG AN INSTABILITY GRADIENT ORIENTED WNW TO ESE.
THE NORTH WEBSTER WSR-88D VWP CURRENTLY HAS 0-6 KM SHEAR AT 50-55 KT
WHICH WILL LIKELY SUPPORT A CONTINUED WIND DAMAGE THREAT. IN
ADDITION...STRONG LOW-LEVEL SHEAR PROFILES WILL SUPPORT A TORNADO
THREAT WITH ROTATING STORMS EMBEDDED IN THE LINE. HAIL WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY WITH CELLS THAT HAVE ACCESS TO THE GREATEST
INSTABILITY ACROSS ERN IND AND WCNTRL OH.



Anyone think this may be a threat to extreme sw ontario? No watches and warnings from EC.....maybe the atmosphere wont support the intensity but tornado watches on one side of the border and nothing on the other seems odd to me

Yeah, this was the first time in 6 years doing the job I do where I ever needed to turn the excavator's lights on to see at 3:45pm.

Here is a little bolt I managed to catch in frame around 9:30

The shot is a little streaked because the winds were moving the tripod, I want a 20lb tripod lol
