Just to tidy things up a bit, I have moved the Dec, Jan, and Feb threads to this General Weather subforum.

Month-specific threads should be kept here, from this point forward, regardless of what kind of weather is expected or discussed during any given month.

If a specific weather system warrants a separate thread, then it should be created in the winter weather or severe weather subforum, depending on the kind of weather that system is expected to bring to the state.

Otherwise, ongoing weather discussion or day to day observations can be in these month-specific threads here.

Seasonable this week, it appears- some days cooler, some days milder. Looks a little warmer next, could be flirting with 70s again before another modest cool down. It just looks like some ups and downs but no wild swings in the near future from what I can tell.

FYI- I have renamed the "General Weather" board to now be "Monthly Discussions and General Weather"

A long and needed dry spell for the areas hit hard by flooding over the weekend.  7 days with no rain is highly unusual for March around here.

A nice reprieve because the general consensus after next week is the GOMEX "opening for business" in regards to healthy moisture return in a potential classic western trough, eastern ridge setup leading into spring. ::coffee::

After you guys posted those nader vids in the the thread, I went and watched some of the live on air stuff from that night. I had never seen it, was asleep at the time and without power for a few days after. Really interesting. Went from not much to ohh sh!t in a matter of minutes.

What kills me is Dan Thomas on WSMV talking about the radar the entire time their camera atop the Renaissance Hotel is pointed north & watches it go right by.

Like, c’mon bro, IT WAS RIGHT THERE!

Didn't see WSMV. Watched a little WKRN and whichever is CBS affiliate, News 5. News 5 was right next to it, they had some pretty good on the ground footage which is ironic because they also had a front row seat for the 98 tornado too. I lived in Hermitage in 98, torndao went through the backend of my neighborhood. Watched it from my front yard until it was right on top of us then went to the basement. Moved to Mount Juliet and was maybe a tenth of a mile from the one last year. Pretty unreal.

That is the key piece. It takes a few weeks to really get to that point.

In the meantime, we’ve found ourselves in an unexpected but not unwelcome dry regime... maybe another week before our next significant chance of rain.

More models are coming on deck with potential severe next weekend/early following week from the Plains & into the Midwest.

Curious- what do you define as the Plains and Midwest?

To me, ND, SD, NE, KS, OK and TX are the plains, and the eastern parts of NM, CO, WY and MT. I would consider MO, IA, MN, WI, IL, IN, MI and OH the Midwest.

Some cooler days and cold mornings in the short term, but 70s still look like a good bet next week.

A system late next week probably leading to rain chances, but that’s getting out there a ways. The SPC doesn’t seem particularly impressed with severe chances anywhere in their 4-8 day.

I see this fairly calm pattern continuing for us for a while. Models will try to jump on things (either cold or severe) in the long range, which will come and go but tend to fizzle under 10 days.

I’ll stick to my earlier thoughts- late March at the very earliest for any big time severe threats for us, but more likely April. Severe threats will probably affect closer to the Gulf Coast before much significant for us.

On the other side, I’m just not feeling or seeing any substantial wintry threats, although I won’t rule out some sort of early spring cold snap, just hoping if it happens, that it happens before spring emergence to limit damage to agricultural interests.

I know March has brought the biggest snows, but understand there doesn’t seem to be anything on the horizon for that out to mid-month, and the window is closing fast.

In the meantime, enjoy the nice days.
