Mid-April Madness

Today marks the finale of a 3-day severe weather episode across the Central and Eastern U.S. As memorizing as tornadoes can be sometimes, they can become particularly dangerous in densely populated areas as we saw today. The damage pictures are sad and amazing at the same time. My thoughts are with those who have been impacted by the events of the previous days...

Meteorologically speaking, this system was amazing. I don't have time to go into further detail at the moment, but I have annotated a surface weather map of significant surface features and severe reports from the three-day event.
