One of the last storms I photographed this year was near Bernard, NM, as a weak supercell storm moved into the roadless wild to my East. This was a surprising little storm that cranked out a lot of lightning. Before the sunset, this cell had a pretty well-developed wall cloud that had me somewhat fooled for a bit! One of those days I may never get a full and proper video done, but it's the first time I captured lightning at 240p in 4K, and I'm realizing I probably do need to do that video now that I'm continuing to type ?

Winter system to impact Southern/Central Plains on Thursday The system coming in Thursday will have snow/rain associated with it. Track right now looks to bring the most snow from NE New Mexico into Kansas — but as NAM shows here, the rain/snow line may make it as far south as Northern Oklahoma. Snow totals will be enough in heaviest regions to have moderate travel impacts. Next week will bring another system that may be even stronger and further south. It’s something to watch.

This storm was about to produce a tornado! I remember standing in this field wondering if the day was about done. But you never doubt the low-level jet in May. This storm seemed to be on a down cycle but within 30 minutes this storm began producing tornadoes, the biggest of which impacted portions of the community of Cole, Oklahoma, this Spring.

This is the last day to apply before we start considering applications! The current plan is to fill only up to five (5) slots for our new Partner Program, built around a spirit of mentorship and education. The simple version of what this program wants to be is simple: We want to partner with newer/up-and-coming storm chasers to share knowledge and content. Learn more on our website: https://www.tornadotitans.com/tornado-titans-partner-program/

HREF bullish on today’s threat. HREF continues to be somewhat bullish on today’s storm mode evolution with a consistent UH signal through the afternoon into the evening. This is a sign that multiple models are picking up on the possibility of rotating storms from Louisiana into Mississippi. A strong tornado is possible in the afternoon and evening. Low cloud bases, very strong shear by late afternoon, and strong instability in the lower atmosphere all tend to point towards that possibility. We’ll be watching it with you all.

Gorgeous supercell in the Texas Panhandle! A supercell from the backside at sunset south and west of Dalhart, Texas this past Spring. This storm formed off of the high terrain in New Mexico and marched very slowly south and east on its path. This cell exhibited some majestic structure during its life, and dropped some big hail. Chasing the High Plains the last few seasons has been more of a focus for us and the results have been well worth the effort. Chasing out in the open country of New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, and Kansas requires some patience and more flexibility on storm positioning. This is because roads are a bit more sparse out west, with 30-40 mile breaks in meaningful roads not that abnormal. But when it all lines up, that open country makes storms look amazing.

Are we headed for a snowy winter on the Plains? It is no secret that we are heading into an El Niño winter for the first time in awhile. Historically, El Niño has been linked to above-average snowfall on the Plains, which may just spark some excitement for snow enthusiasts. However, it’s crucial to remember that this is by no means a guarantee because the weather does what the weather wants, especially on seasonal timelines. The folks at NOAA took a look a historical data with a fresh analysis using the ECMWF ERA5 reanalysis dataset (image above). Their findings show that, during El Niño winters, the southern half of the U.S. typically sees increased snowfall, particularly in higher and colder elevations in the West. On the other hand, areas to the north, including the Great Lakes, interior New England, and the northern Rockies, tend to experience a reduction in snowfall. For moderate-to-strong El Niño events, like the one expected this winter, these patterns become more pronounced. However, it’s essential to note the variation from one winter to another, as a few heavy snowfall winters can skew perceptions. Additionally, long-term trends show a general decline in snowfall across most of the contiguous U.S., though this doesn’t rule out the possibility of significant snowstorms at all. Moving ahead out of winter and into Spring, El Niños can sometimes lead to busier storm seasons, but there is quite a bit of variation on that. For now? The dreams of a white Christmas are statistically more alive than usual this year. ? #snow
