Dangerous Weather Pattern Results

The October 1, 2013 post Dangerous Weather Pattern October 30-November 3, 2013 warning of a severe weather pattern to affect the Plains and Mississippi Valley materialized on schedule fulfilling the long-range forecast issued thirty days in advance.

Here are some of the details:

The forecast related that the storm system would likely start over the West Coast states, transfer its energy eastward, and crank up over the Plains.

The Weather Channel reported on Tuesday, October 29th that "The cold front from the Rockies winter storm charges eastward Wednesday (30th) increasing the threat of severe thunderstorms in western and central Oklahoma and central Texas."

The forecast then mentioned that serious activity starts around October 30th when a major storm system would affect the Central Plains with severe weather warnings as far south as Texas. The severe weather system would then continue through the Mississippi Valley.

Accuweather reported that on Wednesday, October 30th, "Thunderstorms produced wind gusts over 60 mph in southwestern Oklahoma Wednesday night and extreme downpours caused flash flooding across central Texas into the early morning hours Thursday." Below is the Weather Channel map for October 30th.

According to the Weather Channel, 1 to 3 inches of rain was expected from Missouri to Michigan with isolated amounts of 4 to 5 inches in some areas. Sustained winds of 15 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph were expected over the Great Lakes. The lower Mississippi Valley was also under a severe weather threat best shown by the following Accuweather map for October 31st.
