CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Deadly Tornadoes Leave Extensive Damage.

Ten people have been reported killed in Faulkner County Arkansas with the suburbs of Mayflower and Vilonia hardest hit on Sunday, April 27, 2014. At least 150 homes have been destroyed.

At least 31 tornadoes were recorded Sunday — most developed late in the day, and were especially dangerous in Arkansas because they hit in darkness.

A state police spokesman said that 30 cars and trucks were on the road as a twister roared over Interstate 40, and troops went car by car to check on drivers, but it appeared that no one had been killed.


Emergency crews rescue a woman after a tornado tore through her neighborhood near Center Hill, Arkansas.


At least 11 people are dead in Arkansas and at least one more in Oklahoma, as a swarm of tornadoes passed through the central and southern US on Sunday. More violent weather is expected on Monday.

0737 AM CDT MON APR 28 2014

VALID 281300Z – 291200Z

…THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS OVER PARTS OF WRN AND MIDDLE
TN…NRN AND CNTRL MS…NWRN AL…AND FAR NERN LA…

…THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM PARTS OF THE MID MS AND OH
VALLEYS SWD TO THE LOWER MS VALLEY AND CNTRL GULF STATES…AND EWD
TO THE CNTRL AND SRN APPALACHIANS…

…SUMMARY…
A SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK IS FORECAST TODAY INTO TONIGHT FROM PARTS
OF THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY AND
CENTRAL GULF COAST STATES. NUMEROUS TORNADOES ARE EXPECTED…SOME OF
WHICH COULD BE INTENSE. VERY LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING STRAIGHT LINE
WINDS ARE ALSO LIKELY.

…SYNOPSIS…

AN INTENSE MID TO UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL EDGE ONLY SLIGHTLY EWD
FROM THE CNTRL PLAINS INTO THE MID MS VALLEY WITH THIS SYSTEM
BOUNDED ON IT/S SRN PERIPHERY BY A 500-MB JET IN EXCESS OF 70-80 KT
CURVING CYCLONICALLY FROM THE FOUR-CORNERS REGION THROUGH LOWER MS
AND TN VALLEYS INTO CNTRL APPALACHIANS. EMBEDDED WITHIN THIS
HIGH-MOMENTUM AIR STREAM…A MIDLEVEL JET STREAK WILL PROGRESS FROM
THE ARKLATEX AND OZARK PLATEAU EWD INTO THE MID SOUTH. THIS
UPPER-AIR PATTERN EVOLUTION WILL MAINTAIN A 40-50+ KT SWLY LLJ OVER
THE CNTRL GULF STATES AND TN VALLEY…ENHANCING BOTH VERTICAL SHEAR
AND THE POLEWARD FLUX OF HEAT AND MOISTURE WITHIN THE WARM SECTOR OF
THE SYNOPTIC SYSTEM.

AT THE SURFACE…AN OCCLUDED AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER ERN NEB WILL
WEAKEN WHILE SLOWLY SHIFTING ACROSS SRN IA. MEANWHILE…AN
ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL GRADUALLY OVERTAKE A STALLED
DRYLINE/PACIFIC FRONT OVER THE OZARKS INTO NERN TX BEFORE ADVANCING
EWD THROUGH THE MID/LOWER MS VALLEY. THE TRAILING EXTENSION OF THIS
FRONT WILL MOVE MORE SLOWLY SEWD THROUGH PARTS OF LA AND SERN/SRN
TX. THERE IS SOME INDICATION IN LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE THAT A
SECONDARY SURFACE LOW MAY FORM ALONG OR JUST AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT
OVER THE MID SOUTH TODAY WITH THIS FEATURE TRACKING NEWD INTO THE
UPPER OH VALLEY. FINALLY…A WARM FRONT STRETCHING FROM THE MID MO
VALLEY LOW ESEWD THROUGH THE OH VALLEY TO CAROLINAS WILL SLOWLY LIFT
NWD.

…OH/LOWER MS VALLEYS EWD TO THE SRN APPALACHIANS TODAY THROUGH
TONIGHT…

AS OF 12Z…REGIONAL RADAR INDICATED A COUPLE OF SEPARATE MCSS…ONE
WITH A WELL-DEFINED MCV AND EWD/SEWD-ADVANCING COLD POOL FROM SRN
IND/CNTRL KY SWWD THROUGH WRN TN WHERE IT INTERSECTED A MORE
RECENTLY DEVELOPED SYSTEM WHICH TRAILED SSWWD THROUGH NWRN MS TO NRN
LA AND ERN TX. THIS ACTIVITY WILL LIKELY CONTINUE EWD ACROSS PARTS
OF TN…MS…LA…PERHAPS AL THIS MORNING INTO EARLY
AFTERNOON…POSING A RISK FOR A COUPLE TORNADOES…DAMAGING WINDS
AND LARGE HAIL BEFORE WEAKENING LATER TODAY.

IN THE WAKE OF THESE INITIAL STORMS…CONVECTION-ALLOWING MODEL
GUIDANCE IS QUITE CONSISTENT IN SUGGESTING THE REDEVELOPMENT OF
TSTMS BY AFTERNOON ALONG REMNANT OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES AND THE
EWD-MOVING COLD FRONT FROM WRN OR MIDDLE TN SWWD THROUGH NRN/CNTRL
MS INTO NERN LA. 12Z OBSERVED SOUNDINGS FROM THE LOWER MS VALLEY
INDICATE THAT A PRONOUNCED EML HAS BEEN ADVECTED EWD INTO THE REGION
WITH 700-500-MB LAPSE RATES OF 7.5-8.0 C/KM. THESE STEEP LAPSE RATES
OVERLIE A VERY MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER /I.E. LOWEST 100-MB MEAN-MIXING
RATIOS OF 13.5-15.5 G PER KG/ WHICH WILL PROMOTE AFTERNOON MLCAPE
VALUES OF 1500-2500 J/KG IN AREAS WHERE STRONGER DAYTIME HEATING CAN
OCCUR. THIS INSTABILITY WILL ALIGN WITH 50-70 KT DEEP-LAYER SHEAR
AND EFFECTIVE SRH VALUES OF 200-300 M2/S2…SETTING THE STAGE FOR A
POTENTIALLY VOLATILE ENVIRONMENT…SUPPORTIVE OF SUPERCELLS CAPABLE
OF INTENSE TORNADOES AND VERY LARGE HAIL. MESOSCALE TRENDS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED FOR A POSSIBLE UPGRADE TO HIGH RISK LATER
TODAY.

THE NRN EXTENT OF THIS FAVORABLE WARM SECTOR ENVIRONMENT WILL BE
DICTATED BY THE LINGERING EFFECTS OF THE CURRENT COLD POOL IN PLACE
ACROSS THE LOWER OH INTO PARTS OF THE TN VALLEY. WHERE STRONGER
BOUNDARY-LAYER HEATING CAN OCCUR…THE LARGE-SCALE ENVIRONMENT WILL
SUPPORT SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF TORNADOES AND LARGE HAIL NWD INTO SRN
PARTS OF THE MID OH VALLEY.

AN EVENTUAL UPSCALE GROWTH OF DIURNALLY ENHANCED TSTMS INTO ONE OR
MORE LINEAR CONVECTIVE SYSTEMS APPEARS LIKELY LATE THIS EVENING INTO
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS OVER PARTS OF THE MID OH AND TN VALLEYS SWD
TOWARD THE CNTRL GULF COAST. THIS ACTIVITY WILL PROGRESS EWD INTO
THE CNTRL/SRN APPALACHIANS AND ERN GULF STATES WITH A CONTINUING
THREAT FOR PRIMARILY DAMAGING WINDS.

…MID MS VALLEY THIS AFTERNOON INTO EVENING…

ANALOGOUS TO YESTERDAY/S EVENTS OVER CNTRL NEB…A SIMILAR SETUP
WILL EVOLVE OVER THE REGION TODAY WHEREBY THE MIDLEVEL COLD POOL
ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER LOW OVERLIES A WARMING BOUNDARY
LAYER…YIELDING STEEP LAPSE RATES AND MLCAPE OF 1000-1500 J/KG. A
PRONOUNCED GRADIENT IN DEEP-LAYER SHEAR WILL EXIST BY
AFTERNOON…RANGING FROM GENERALLY LESS THAN 30 KT ALONG THE
OCCLUDED FRONT OVER SRN IA INTO W-CNTRL IL…TO 50-60 KT OVER
CNTRL/SRN PARTS OF IL/IND AND POINTS SOUTH. AS SUCH…MIXED STORM
MODES WILL LIKELY EVOLVE THIS AFTERNOON…INCLUDING MULTICELL AND
SUPERCELL STRUCTURES. LARGE HAIL WILL BE THE PRIMARY HAZARD…THOUGH
TORNADOES ARE ALSO POSSIBLE OWING TO THE PRESENCE OF A
VERTICAL-VORTICITY-RICH ENVIRONMENT.

…CNTRL/ERN NC CAROLINA THIS AFTERNOON…

DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF A BUILDING MIDLEVEL RIDGE…LOW-LEVEL
MOISTENING COUPLED WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND CONVERGENCE ALONG THE
SLOWLY RETREATING WEDGE FRONT MAY FOSTER AN ENVIRONMENT FAVORABLE
FOR ISOLATED SEVERE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON. FORECAST SOUNDINGS
INDICATE MLCAPE APPROACHING 500-1500 J/KG AND A VERTICALLY VEERING
WIND PROFILE WITH 30-35 KT OF VERTICAL SHEAR WHICH WOULD SUPPORT
ORGANIZED/ROTATING UPDRAFTS WITH A RISK FOR ISOLATED OCCURRENCES OF
LARGE HAIL AND/OR LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS.
