Since we've had several severe weather events over the last week, I figure that this is good time to go over some of the parameters that are analyzed in determining whether or not severe weather is possible.
Today, another two pronged system is developing in the middle of the US early Thursday morning. The first wave is along the warm front which pushes through Ohio later on this morning/early afternoon. Temperatures surge into the 70s after the warm front goes north.
After that, the cold front approaches with plenty of energy with it.
The components for today's severe weather are these:
* Humid air
* Warm temperatures & sunshine
* Strong cold front/lots of lift
* Changing wind direction from the ground up to 18,000 feet
