    Here is another I thing they said the Bahamas are made up of 700 Islands and cover 180,000 sq miles...Had to go and check this out DAMN! I had no idea....

    The Bahamas (/bəˈhɑːməz/ ([​IMG]listen)), known officially as the Commonwealth of the Bahamas,[10] is a country within the Lucayan Archipelago, in the Caribbean. The archipelagic state consists of more than 700 islands, cays, and isletsin the Atlantic Ocean, and is located north of Cuba and Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands, southeast of the U.S. state of Florida, and east of the Florida Keys. The capital is Nassau on the island of New Providence. The designation of "the Bahamas" can refer either to the country or to the larger island chain that it shares with the Turks and Caicos Islands.[citation needed] The Royal Bahamas Defence Forcedescribes the Bahamas territory as encompassing 470,000 km2 (180,000 sq mi) of ocean space.

    I usually post these over in the bama thread at the beginning of the week but since the majority of this threat is in Mississippi and Louisiana I'm posting here as well.


    From AlabamaWX

    ACTIVE WEATHER AHEAD: We note a few small showers on radar across Central Alabama this morning, but a decent part of the day today will be dry; the sky will be mostly cloudy. A south wind will increase this afternoon, and we project a high in the low 70s today, well above the average high of 56 for December 16.

    SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE: A dynamic weather system will bring the threat of strong to severe thunderstorms to Alabama late this afternoon and tonight. SPC has some western counties in an “enhanced risk” (level 3/5) of severe storms… the standard “slight risk” (level 2/5) is defined as far east as Huntsville, Gadsden, Alexander City, Troy, and Andalusia, and the rest of East Alabama is in a “marginal risk” (level 1/5).

    [​IMG]

    There will be sufficient instability and shear to support severe storms on a large scale; still some questions concerning how the mesoscale features play out tonight. But, certainly everyone in Alabama will need to pay attention to the weather and heed warnings if they are issued.

    TIMING: A few severe storms are possible over far West and Northwest Alabama as early as 4:00, but the core threat comes tonight, after 6:00. Storms could linger across East and Southeast Alabama through 7:00 a.m. tomorrow.

    THREATS: Storms tonight will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. For now SPC shows the higher tornado probabilities west of Alabama over parts of Mississippi and Louisiana.

    [​IMG]

    RAIN: Rain amounts of 1-2 inches are likely for most of the state through tomorrow morning. No major flooding issues are expected.

    CALL TO ACTION: Be sure you have a way of hearing severe weather warnings tonight if they are needed. Never a siren. Every Alabama home and business needs a NOAA Weather Radio, properly programmed with a fresh battery backup. Have WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) enabled on your phone, and download the free ABC 33/40 Weather app to get notifications as well (just search for it on the App Store). In your safe place, have helmets for everyone (including adults). And, if you live in a mobile home, you have to leave if you are in a tornado warning polygon; know where you are going, and the quickest way of getting there.

    REST OF THE WEEK: Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy and sharply colder; temperatures over the northern half of the state hold in the 40s all day with a chilly northwest wind of 15-25 mph. Some lingering rain is possible tomorrow morning over the southeast counties. Wednesday and Thursday will be dry with a good supply of sunshine both days; morning lows will be in the 20s. The high Wednesday will be close to 50, followed by low 50s Thursday.

    High clouds will move in Friday ahead of an upper air system, but the sky will be partly sunny with a high in the 50s. It looks like the air will be too dry for any meaningful chance of rain.


    From me personally.

    Please don't rely on the magical siren to wake you up. It will not. It won't. Never happen. Personally I think they need to all be torn down. This ain't 1950 anymore. With all the technology available why would you want to rely on something from the 1940's and 50's?

    Be safe and be weather aware. Hopefully nothing happens but a few rumbles of thunder. :thumbsup:

    The NWS Storm Prediction Center have now increased the threat to moderate.

    PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK
    NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
    1033 AM CST MON DEC 16 2019

    ...Severe thunderstorms expected over parts of the Lower Mississippi
    Valley and Deep South today into the evening...

    * LOCATIONS...
    Central Mississippi
    Central and northern Louisiana
    Far western Alabama

    * HAZARDS...
    Several tornadoes, a few intense
    Widespread damaging winds
    Isolated large hail

    * SUMMARY...
    Numerous to potentially widespread severe thunderstorms are
    anticipated across parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley and
    Deep South with tornadoes and damaging winds as the primary
    hazards. The peak tornado risk is expected through early
    evening, centered on northern and central Louisiana into central
    Mississippi.

    Preparedness actions...

    Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
    of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio,
    weather.gov, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
    watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
    during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
    your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
    interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.

    Increase in threat

    [​IMG]

    The Storm Prediction Center has just released its latest Day 1 Convective Outlook and has upgraded portions of central and southwestern Mississippi and eastern Louisiana to a Moderate Risk (level 4 of 5) for severe storms.

    For North/Central Alabama, the Enhanced Risk (level 3 of 5) remains unchanged while the Slight Risk (level 2 of 5) has been extended eastward slightly to include much of the west of the area. A Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) continues for the locations closest to the AL/GA state line.

    [​IMG]

    The above image shows the risk for tornadoes with a 15% chance of an EF2-EF5 tornado occurring within 25 miles of a point in the Moderate Risk zone. Much of the Enhanced Risk zone has a 10% chance. Tornadoes are possible but a little less likely in the Slight Risk zone.

    Places that are under the gun for significant severe weather include Alexandria LA, Jackson MS, Meridian MS, Vicksburg MS and Clinton MS.
