Vols were gassed today. They are a bunch of 2 and 3 stars, and we have seen their ceiling against Kentucky.

Anywho, I didn't just make that up about Auburn students living in trailers- they live in literal trailers. It's a popular and affordable means of housing there. Thank goodness those twisters missed AU proper earlier this month.

In the realm of weather, it was below 32F here again this morning (30), and we might have at least 2 more nights of freezing temperatures in the foothills.  It could be the longest stretch of freezing weather at night outside of the short "Arctic outbreak" in January.  Considering it's mid-March, that shows what a terrible winter we've endured here.

Look at the 12Z and 18Z GFS suite with its warm Southwestern USA and colder than normal SE after the March 25th/27th severe threat.  Pretty much did a flip in the long range. 

Whether that verifies who knows anymore especially when it comes to the GFS model suite.  If it does that Vertical Video Vinnie may not get as much coverage.

If the GFS is to be believed we finally get the blocking that we have been looking for. Looks to be a cold end of March and start of April.

Record flooding is occurring in Nebraska and other areas in the upper Midwest. Thereís a 70-mile stretch of interstate closed on I-29, the main route between Kansas City and Omaha. A nuclear power plant is cut off and is only accessible by helicopter to bring in supplies.

Of course, all that water has to eventually empty into the Mississippi.

Yet another freeze this morning--down to 28.  On my way to work, I noticed temperatures as low as 25 in some open valleys.  One more night near or below freezing is being forecast IMBY tonight.  And another frost is certainly possible Friday night with lows in the mid-30's projected here. 

Considering the flooding T-Snow mentioned above heading down the Missouri & Mississippi Rivers, it's a very good thing the heavy rain here has stopped for now.  We don't need anymore runoff added to what's already heading our way.

The equinox is at 4:58 PM CDT. Incidentally, there will also be a full moon tonight... first one to occur on the first day of spring in 19 years, for what thatís worth.

Pretty good inversion this morning. I was much warmer than recent nights with a low of 33. Temp on the hill was 36 when I left but just down the road hit 25 along a lower field. Saw as low as 23 on the official obs.

I am hoping we get a good severe weather event coming up soon to track...as long as it doesn't hurt anybody or cause property damage....I am happy if it stays in wooded fields :). But there is some kind of adrenaline I get when a big severe event is forecast and REAL super cells occur...not the crapvection we have had the past few years...It is just fascinating to watch ( again as long as nobody is harmed ).

I will never forget the gallatin tornado day in 2006 when the SPC had our area under high risk and 60% possibility of a tornado and hatched area...Have never seen that again. I took that day more serious than any severe weather event in my life

thanks. Bro.... that kind wording just gives me chills....

nice to know I am not the only one who obsesses about past high risk days and things like that LOL

another one I remember is the sequences of may 2003...I recall a tornado watch like 3 days in a row here in west middle tn...I was only 17 at the time so I am a bit foggy...I believe that was the Jackson TN F4? But the fact that it was day after day of moderate to high risk right around our area was quite frightening

Think last high risk day we have had was late May 2011... that event effected mostly the Ohio valley regions think.... course 2011 was probably last true violent spring south has had ....
