Things are still unstable today, a complex low with associated warm and cold fronts is moving through. LI's are around -7, weak cap, good curved hodograph on some soundings, cold temps in the 500's and a jet stream going one way at 500mb and another stream going another way at 300mb. Storms should start firing up east of the trough on the triple point soon.

Heavy storms move into Louisiana, 40 parishes under tornado watch



US residents in western Louisiana were under a tornado watch as severe thunderstorms continued to pummel the region with strong winds and heavy rains.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for more than 40 parishes in western Louisiana until 9pm local time.

The alerts came as heavy wind and rain moved into the state from eastern Texas, where at least three tornadoes touched down earlier today.

The twisters touched down in areas northwest of Houston, with one knocking down trees and destroying a tire shop in Somerville, the Houston Chronicle reported. Two more tornadoes reportedly touched down in Brenham and in Waller County.

While the worst of the severe weather had passed by late afternoon, several Houston neighborhoods were left with high water and flooding, according to myFOXhouston.com.

No serious injuries were reported, but at least 4500 people in the Houston area were without power as of 2pm local time.

Earlier today, high wind gusts had knocked out power to nearly 21,000 people in the Houston area, leaving utility crews scrambling to restore electricity.

Both Houston airports - George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport - have reported about 30 cancelled flights and dozens of delays today, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Just keeping an eye on the radar at the moment - looks like there's two areas where tornadoes are possible. Storm looks to be weakening now.

Hi :)

Well in Los Angeles now, got a few big Corona cans stocked to watch the Superbowl, man it feels like AFL Grand Final Day here where there is nothing but all pre entertainment stuff on TV and all the locals are getting excited. The weather hasnt been too bad although meant to get rain on Tuesday so relaxing today and getting most of the stuff done tomorrow. On the Dr Phil show in the morning :wink:

New York was a major letdown with the weather, got stuck with the snow-drought of Winter 11/12 in the NE USA. Got plenty of rain but no artic airmass to turn that rain to snow. Greenland block was also near non-existant so no major dip in the jetstream which meant the artic air stayed in Alaska and Canada :( Did get lucky though and had snowcover on the first 2 days there. We did get a couple flurries but I was asleep when it all happened. NYC other than that was awesome :) Least though I escaped the Perth heatwave plus happy I didnt go now as there is no rain/snow forecast there for the next week.

Orlando was next and felt bit tired, getting from one park to the other was such a mission that sometimes it took an hour to get to where u want to go. The weather was like Perth in October/November, warm without much humidity. Had a couple overcast days. Got stuck in some nice turbulance crossing over the mid-west.

Well still yet to see snow fall which is a life goal for me so I guess next is either the Vic Alps after a cold front has gone through mid year, New Zealand or go to Moscow or Canada after next christmas :)

Sounds pretty cool Adam.

In the Gulf there is the threat of a tropical storm or even Hurricane brewing.

Well made it to Vancouver, weather has been the most disappointment ever. If I wanted sunny weather I will stay home but here they are having a rare sunny break where snow resorts arent forecasting any snow till the day after I leave. :x Maybe I shouldve gone to Calgary instead (always next time)

Well one advantage least I dont have to worry much about a raincoat and getting drenched although its going to be cold Min of -2C and Max of 6C forecast for the next 2 or so days. Most of the weather it seems is hitting NE USA

Honolulu was nice, was great to see no rain after what happened last time (see earlier posts). Humidity was high and was quite stinking hot and hazy due to lack of trade winds. Last day we got a few isolated showers.

Another day in Sunny Vancouver, its starting to get very cold here. A High Pressure System to the west is bringing the Artic cold down to us which today only got to 8C. Tomorrow is forecast to be only 6C which is very cold. A change is expected on Sunday (Midday by the looks of it) where a warm front is crossing which is meant to bring a dusting on snow on Sunday with freeze levels at 500m. I leave on Sunday night so will hopefully get my first snowfall (im heading to Grouse Mountain that day) in North America since Jan 26.

10cm is forecast.
