  1. I was having a scour of newspaper archives the other day & found mentions of a 'whirlwind' that struck Herne Bay just after 2 pm. It seems to follow the normal SW to NE track typical of UK tornadoes, spanning over 3 miles in just under 3 minutes. Newspapers from London Daily News & the local Whitstable Times & Herne Bay Herald both describe the events of the day with a 'brief period of darkness' with residents reporting a 'noise like thunder' before fences were levelled, trees were blown over & windows were blown in. I had not heard anything like this before & I'm shocked I haven't considering the damage & extremity of it with the wind was estimated to be 'blowing at the rate of over a hundred miles an hour.' The long track of this as well as the roaring noise typical of tornadoes suggests that this was no straight line winds & a tornado, probably spawned off an embedded thunderstorm along the cold front arriving that afternoon. I have plotted a rough estimated track of the tornado based on a 1906 map of the town with notable points such as a farm nearby the station being hit & Beltinge sustaining damage as good indication points: I have not been able to find any more details on how wide the tornado was or any pictures of any damage. I believe the track on that map comes just over the 3 mile mark but I cannot be sure. I'd estimate it to be around a T3 tornado. Reanalysis of the day from 12:00 UTC does show colder air arriving from the NW going from 8c 850hpa temps to below 0c 850hPa temps.

  3. Today marks the 20th anniversary of the May 3rd 1999 Oklahoma tornado outbreak that took 40 lives, the highest wind speed ever recorded and a significant portion of it was broadcast live most likely saving 10's if not 100's of lives. Oklahoma 1999 Tornado Outbreak.

  17. From the album: Weather Studios

    The supercell storm near Piedmont, Oklahoma, that we'd been tracking from initiation, took on the form of the foreboding 'mothership' structure. Tried as it might, the storm seemed just fractionally too high to produce a tornado, but the mobile tornado sirens were issued just in case.
