For reasons unknown, at least two weather people tweeted yesterday that tornadoes will not occur Wednesday. One broadcast a similar tweet this morning on the same subject.
A major weather system will be coming through the central United States at midweek (see below, plus scroll down). I don't know whether tornadoes will accompany it or not. The main question is whether enough Gulf moisture will move into position ahead of the storm.
The purpose of this blog is no longer primarily one of weather. However, given the possibly of a late-season blizzard plus the first tornadoes of the season (even though it is probably a low risk at this point), I will cover this next storm. So, please stay tuned.
