Same storm was out in WKS last night and knocked down some dead/old tree's on the cat ranch.

No major damage and all cats seem to be accounted for

?s=19




same storm system, different storm


i love a good a heat burst. While the Kansas mesonet is decent, I wish there were more stations around the state. http://mesonet.k-state.edu/

Never heard of a derecho (besides the spanish term) for a storm. Fascinating.

Have heard of and know my parents experienced a heat burst in Wichita a few years back. Those are utterly weird and interesting.

First tornado warning of the season. Lezak just said we haven’t even had a tornado watch for the KC metro in 2 years.

Most crazy thing is it seemed to come out of no where, even at my house rn it's totally calm and only got some rain. Heard the sirens and thought "really? this can't be real"

Yeah it’s like 49 degrees out, came out of nowhere. I could barely hear the sirens that were going off in south OP. It’s just raining here.

I'm just North of 435 and it was like barely misting rain.  I can still hear thunder every once in a while, but nothing else.

What? How is that even possible? Like I don't understand this at all.

That's crazy if true. I live significantly north and a bit east of KC and I can't remember the last time I went a year without multiple tornado watches and at least one warning. We've already had a watch this year and the last one before last week was in November. I get no warnings but I don't know how anyone in the plains could go two years without a watch.

The quality of the graphic sucks but i do believe there was a lack tornados is central to eastern kansas last year. I'd seen some other tweets on it that I can't find now. not very common for sure.

That, weirdly seems right, despite the ridiculousness of 2020, I don't remember the weather ever being crazy at all.

That's wild, it does contradict that KC hasn't even had a tornado watch in two years tho.

tornado reports doesn't necessarily mean there was a tornado watch. Although after some more twitter searching, there was a lot of conflicting data out there. Either way, not as many nados as normal.


Also the south is about to get bent over today. :ohno:

I certainly agree with you when it comes to tornadoes without watches, although that map indicates there were 9 tornadoes in the KC area on the Missouri side and 3 on the Kansas side, I doubt that many came without a watch. It's more possible that Lezak or whomever said that just made a mistake.

Weather twitter is in a tizzy because the dreaded "some people" called yesterday's outbreak a dud, although all of the people railing against it didn't quote tweet anyone actually saying that. Seeing some of the damage from the outbreak, I'm amazed that no one died, even though none of the tornadoes hit an urban area.

I discovered this website and I love it. https://tornadopaths.org/
