Tornadoes followed by snow.

A dip in the jet stream has ushered in a cooler, drier air mass into areas that were just affected by Friday's tornado outbreak.

In fact, the air may be just cold enough that a weak disturbance moving across the Ohio Valley could bring some light snow Sunday into Monday across portions of southern Indiana, Kentucky and southern Ohio as the clean-up continues. Accumulations in these tornado-ravaged areas will be light, generally a dusting to an inch or two.

WOW a very tough (tragic) week for some folks.

1. Took morning coffee to front porch, sun high in the sky, snow falling down.

Just a dusting.

2. Friday a weather guy showed a weather map with temps of 40 and 75 within miles of one another.

With a wall of insanity between them.

Perfectly normal.

6. A 35 degree drop isn't unusual for a cold front.

And the bad part is that warm air gets lifted and causes horrible storms along the front.

3. If you're a weather fan you probably know this jet stream site

but here's an animation forecast to go with your contemplation of a 'dipping jet' stream.

5. I had not ever seen that site

it differs from the Weather Channel (and all other weather maps) here is the US because..... THERE IS WEATHER IN CANADA AND MEXICO!!! -- that is a joke my brother and I created years ago when we noticed that storms on US weather maps magically appear in North Dakota and Arizona.
