In our continuing efforts to monitor various natural threats, rarely do we see a forecast model as foreboding as the one that is now showing up for the East and Southeast for May 5-6. If this model holds true it will mean extreme weather unlike we have seen for years and it will impact most of the East and Southeast. The intensity of this model would suggest severe outbreaks of tornadoes, very high winds, and heavy snow extending as far south as Kentucky and Tennessee.
We have been witness, in the East, warmer than normal temperatures followed by extremely cold fronts moving through for the last few weeks. But honestly folks, we have never seen a model as ugly as this in our experience. Hope we are wrong, but even if the model is off, we can expect some pretty extreme weather from this system that is currently making it’s way from Canada as we speak. Just a heads up, so you might want to stock up on a few things, because without a doubt there will be wide spread power outages from this monster.
