That’s a wrap (mostly) on our severe weather event of April 1, 2024. This morning, we talked about the low tornado threat generally, with a chance of a locally enhanced threat if isolated/dominant supercells could get going — that didn’t happen. Storm mode is everything when dealing with this stuff. We did see a few tornadoes in the region, but the overall numbers will be pretty low overall.

Capping was a lot stronger than anticipated, which actually kept down the overall severe weather threat, with only a smattering of huge hail reports. The thick clouds all day mixed with blowtorch winds just off the surface had a 1-2 punch effect of suppressing storms most of the day.

This line will move east and gradually weaken tonight, with a continued low tornado risk for a bit longer. Our next chase chances look to slide in on Saturday.
