Check out this video of the Platte County, Wyoming tornado from June 7, 2012 with very strong suction vortices.  This tornado was on the ground for at least 15 minutes and likely much longer.  We also launched a quad copter drone into a tornadic circulation following the intercept with aerial video included here.  The entire chase was streamed live on the Dominator 2 Premium Stream at http://live.tvnweather.com

TVN made an all night grind, leaving Norman, OK at 8 p.m. Monday night and stopping only for gas--eventually chasing a tornadic supercell in northern Divide county, North Dakota and intercepting the first of 5 tornadoes!  It was evident that the tornado threat would reside along an occluded boundary/ warm front very near the Canadian border in northern North Dakota, where low-level shear was maximized and dewpoints/ cloud bases were lower.  We watched 4 other tornadoes, 2 of which crossed into Saskatchewan, Canada within just a couple of miles!  We, unfortunately, could not cross the border and had to watch them from the border crossing!  Check out our video below!

Tomorrow has the potential for numerous tornadic supercells for much of Wisconsin, extreme southeastern MN and the extreme southern upper peninsula of Michigan!  TVN is surging eastward tonight and will be in position for tomorrow!  Sign-up for the webisode launch now at http://TVNweather.com

Today marks one year since thousands of lives were changed by the weather in and around southwest Missouri. On May 22, 2011, the city of Joplin was taken apart in graphic fashion by one of the most violent tornadoes ever to impact a community in the United States: an EF-5, nearly a mile wide. Over 150 were killed; the injured, almost too many to count. The damage left behind: staggering.


Below is a summary of the event, courtesy of the National Weather Service office in Springfield, MO, along with the Weather Service's assessment report. As the Weather Service explains,


"Service Assessments provide a valuable contribution to ongoing efforts by the National Weather Service to improve the quality, timeliness, and value of our products and services. Findings and recommendations from this assessment will improve techniques, products, services, and information provided to our partners and the American public."


As such, this is a must-read:

Below is the video of the Joplin tornado, captured by TVN's Basehunters chase team. Isaac Pato, Scott Peake, Kevin Rolfs and Colt Forney found themselves among the first to enter the disaster scene, and subsequently remained for over an hour in search and rescue mode:

 



Potential exists for several days of severe weather beginning today in the northern Plains and lasting potentially into early next week; Reed and the Dominator crew will be chasing today in North Dakota (follow along live HERE). With the busy Memorial Day weekend looking to be an active severe weather day, and with the Joplin story still fresh in our minds, we want to underscore importance of monitoring local weather conditions and having a plan in place before severe weather strikes.
