And incredible low at 992mb is bombing out in the midwest this morning and afternoon, gradually progressing to the northeast. Associated with it is plenty of mild, moist air and vertical forcing, as well as strong wind speed and shear. This spells trouble.

SPC has forecast a HIGH RISK for portions of Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Severe weather threats include the high likelihood of strong, damaging tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. It’s pretty early in the season to be seeing this kind of severe weather event. Is it a sign of things to come for the rest of the severe weather season? Will we be seeing any of this, this year? With La-Nina waning and going neutral, then trending toward a El-Nina pattern. . . it could happen.

More updates tonight on the number of tornadoes reported (An unconfirmed 15 thus far) and areas impacted hard by the severe weather.
