Day 2 Convective Outlook 
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1258 AM CDT Mon Apr 01 2024

   Valid 021200Z - 031200Z

   ...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF
   THE OHIO AND TENNESSEE VALLEYS...

   ...SUMMARY...
   A severe threat is expected on Tuesday from the Ohio and Tennessee
   Valleys eastward into the Mid-Atlantic, and southward into the
   central Gulf Coast states. Wind damage and isolated large hail will
   be possible across a broad area. The tornado threat is expected to
   be greatest from middle Tennessee north-northeastward into central
   and northern Kentucky.

   ...Ohio and Tennessee Valleys/Central Gulf Coast States/Central
   Appalachians...
   An upper-level trough is forecast to move eastward into the mid to
   upper Mississippi Valley on Tuesday, as a cold front advances
   eastward toward the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. By afternoon, a
   north-to-south corridor of maximized low-level moisture is forecast
   to be in place from the northern Gulf Coast States to central
   Kentucky, where surface dewpoints are expected to be in the mid 60s
   F. As instability increases along this corridor, numerous
   thunderstorms will likely develop, with a linear MCS organizing and
   moving eastward across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys during the
   afternoon and evening. This large MCS should reach the central
   Appalachians by early to mid evening.

   A 90 to 100 knot mid-level jet will likely move northeastward into
   the Ohio Valley during the afternoon. This jet will create strong
   deep-layer shear across most of the region. Forecast soundings by
   21Z from middle Tennessee to central Kentucky have 0-6 km shear in
   the 70 to 80 knot range. The wind shear and strong large-scale
   ascent, associated with the mid-level jet, will be favorable for the
   development of a squall line Tuesday afternoon. This linear MCS will
   likely have numerous embedded severe storms with the greatest threat
   being wind damage. The wind-damage threat is expected to maximize
   during the late afternoon and early evening. QLCS tornadic
   circulations will be possible along some parts of the line,
   especially near bowing segments. An isolated large hail threat is
   also expected in areas where the squall line interacts with locally stronger instability, and
   with isolated rotating cells that develop ahead of the line. The severe threat is expected
   to decrease during the mid to late evening as the line moves through the central
Appalachians.

I took this photo today to show that dogwoods are blooming, and bradford pears are not.

On the left is a dogwood tree (the smaller one with white blossoms). The larger tree on the right is a bradford pear. Its blossoms are long gone, and green leaves are fully out now (those were blooming about a month ago at this point around the first week of March).

I officially declare this cold snap as "dogwood winter" then.  ;D

Redbud blooms are still in force, but they are on the wane at this point.

We bottomed out at 34F here last night with a decent slushy frost.  That makes three frosts this week, and hopefully the last one for the season.

My dogwoods are still not blooming, though, so who knows?   ::)
Hire the left-handed --- its fun to watch them write.

Next week is looking quite warm (80s), and then temps maybe back off to 70s after that, but it's long range.

The usual additional cool snaps are probably still coming (locust, blackberry, etc. "winters"). But, as time goes on and we get deeper into April and approach May, it may be becoming more likely that we've seen our last frost and freeze. That cannot be ruled out through April, though.

This weekend is looking like a good time to get things in the ground. I’ve already tilled, fertilized, and put down my weed barrier on my rows.  Put my sweet corn in last weekend. Got 40 tomato plants to put in them sew cucumber, squash, zucchini, and green beans.  Love this time of year.
