Although main tornado risk is well over, this MCV in southwestern georgia may well produce a few weak tors as it progresses to the north east

Cant believe that 24 hours ago this was a slight risk with no significant severe weather expected, goes to show that we still have a long way to go in weather prediction/models

SPC now has 141 severe reports for yesterday, including 25 tornado reports. Interesting to see the amount of hail reports, quite rare for this part of the us. Supercells formed in Mississippi, producing large hail then shifted to tornado production when they reached the stronger low level jet across northern Tennessee.

2 years ago today one of the most violent and the deadliest tornado outbreak for December would occur across the midwestern united states. 89 people would lose their lives and over 600 would be injured. 

The most powerful tornado of this outbreak tracked for over 165 miles, being on the ground for just under 3 hours. It was rated a high-end EF4 with maximum windspeeds estimated at around 190mph, although many believe the tornado peaked at over 200mph and reached the EF5 threshold 

At approximately 9:26 pm CST/03:26 am gmt the tornado would hit the town of Mayfield, killing 22 and injuring hundreds, today the town still bares the scars of that night

The supercell that produced this tornado had already produced another violent EF4 that had tracked for 81 miles over an hour and 30, killing 8. 

A video of the full track of the supercell shows how meteorologically incredible it was, tracking for over 550 miles over several hours, for most of its lifetime it was completely isolated and was able to efficiently use the surrounding near storm environment to its fullest. 

At around 11pm the tornado hit the small communities of Bremen and  Dawson Springs, producing extremely high end EF4 damage

Eventually at around 11:55 pm on December the 10th 2021 the tornado would dissipate after nearly 3 hours on the ground.

Overall the outbreak would produce 71 tornadoes, many of which were strong, such as the EF3 that hit bowling green kentucky, for anyone wanting a proper breakdown of this event i would really recommend Treys vid covering the outbreak, very detailed.

This is the electrical transformer that caused the large explosion.

Hmmm

Looking ahead it seems an active period of troughing is being suggested by GFS around christmas period, may be going into another period of active storms/possible severe weather depending on moisture quality/quantity within the GOM.

I agree, im not liking what models are showing right now with a powerful trough swinging in on that date, that said we are still 294 hours out, things will change and the system may just fizzle out as we get into the mid range, still worth watching though.
