Severe thunderstorm activity has gotten off to a rapid start so far in April, and the severe weather season is just starting.

We're not even halfway through the month and we have 2,935  combined reports of damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes across the central and eastern states. This is 86 percent of April's entire month 10-year average (2000-2009)  in only the first 11 days! This includes a widespread wind damage event from April 4-5 and a record-breaking number of tornadoes in a single April day for Wisconsin last Sunday. Also, who can forget the crazy tornadoes from this past Saturday in Iowa where supercell thunderstorms spawned tornadoes as strong as EF3 intensity.

The next few days will bring another batch of energy aloft (jet stream disturbance) from the West headed for the Plains by Thursday. This will help intensify a surface low in the middle of country and push a cold front eastward, while Gulf of Mexico moisture returns northward.  So get prepared as this could be one of the most intense sever weather seasons on record.
