Tornado outbreaks 2005
« on: 16 December 2005, 02:50:12 PM »
Hi,

It is amazing that tornadoes have continued to touch down even so close to November and particularly since the northern parts of the country should have snow. Unfortunately, there were fatalities and major damage in some counties in Illinois and Indiana in separate outbreaks.

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara

Hi Jimmy,

I just hope it keeps happening in May 2006. hehe sorry not a particularly relevant post however I will add more thoughts in March as things build up to the chase.

Are there any links to specific events and dates. I do recall noting that dewpoinnts were progged to be 65F somewhere in the deep south last week. It is winter....that is phenomenal.

What can on expect from the Gulf of New Mexico I guess. It is the source of the violent weather that awaits in spring and early summer!

Yes we shall await for some activity but I am wandering if there are some outbreaks during January and/or February this year? Will be ainteresting to find out - nothing impossible in the US.
