Good morning bloggers,
The weather is going to heat up today back into the 80s. While the weather is calm I have a couple of videos to share with you. One of them shows the tornado of the year thus far, and fortunately this EF-3 tornado over central Kansas did not produce much damage as it was mostly over open country. And, the second video discusses one of the biggest reasons why we have had the weather we have had this year.
Tornado Video taken by the great photographer Mike Olbinski: From Gerard Jebaily: You better wear a helmet before watching this because it will BLOW…YOUR…MIND! Here is time lapse video of the Tescott/Culver KS tornado that I chased in storm tracker back on May 1st taken by the best storm photographer I know, Mike Olbinski. His work is featured in movies and TV shows all over the world! Make sure you watch it in at least 1080p or 4K if you can!
There has yet to be an EF-4 or stronger tornado this year. I am not sure there has ever been a year without one. If someone can check on this statistic we would appreciate it. Now, it is only May 22, and Jeff Penner’s birthday. This is one of the biggest dates for tornadoes of the year, and it is very calm today.
This years pattern: The Quasi-Permanent troughs and ridges are one of the biggest reasons why we have had this years weather experience where you are located.
Have a great day! It will be a warm one. We will look into the holiday weekend forecast on 41 Action News and in the blog tomorrow.
