ALERT: Tornado Outbreak forecast for mid-west Texas/OK/Kansas…Saturday/Sunday

We don’t get 24 hour notice of severe tornado outbreaks very often, but you NEED to be aware of them when they happen. As of this morning, Fox news and the national weather service are forecasting a storm system that will have “large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain, and MANY STRONG TORNADOES that could be long track and potentially life threatening.”

The conditions that are forming the basis for this storm, also have the potential to keep moving east, and affecting Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and nearby states.

If you live in these areas, please take the time now to make sure your weather radio has fresh batteries, your go-bags are ready, and you have shelter to go do if needed.

This is a dangerous situation. Please act accordingly. Your life may depend on it.  Being in west central Wyoming, this frontal system is bringing us a chance of rain and snow for the next several days, courtesy of the moisture coming up from the gulf and even the pacific. While we won’t see tornadoes, the instability that is bring us this change, is going to get worse the farther south and east the frontal boundary moves.

So, don’t take any chances. Be prepared…be ready…and be safe.
