Monday Recap and Looking Ahead

Monday was another day with numerous tornadoes and severe thunderstorms.

We started the day in Arkansas and moved into Mississippi. By early afternoon, Tornado Warnings were rapidly firing. The first storm we came close to was a rain-wrapped tornado in the vicinity of Eupora. We could see the tail cloud of the storm, but not the tornado itself.

We shifted south and east and eventually setup near a supercell approaching Crawford. There was great structure with that storm and we could eventually see the tornado just to the northwest. We stayed with the storm for a time before dropping back south to intercept more developing supercells.

For today, the plan is to setup in central and east-central Mississippi. There will likely be numerous supercells with several tornadoes once again. A few of those tornadoes could be EF-2 or stronger. I will probably divert into Alabama later tonight to get into a decent position for tomorrow. The severe weather threat targets Georgia into the Carolinas for Wednesday.

I will have video footage to upload in the coming days, but its taking some time with the ongoing storms, traveling/driving, editing videos and photos, adding watermarks, etc.
