Once again, I find that there are way too many of these types of items to include them in any of my existing articles. There just isn’t room. So, I have created this article to keep you informed on current extreme weather and or disaster type warnings. That way you won’t be as likely to miss them mixed in with other news. The dam, river and flooding items will still be found here: It’s a DAM Shame.
I received the following link in an email from someone who reads my posts. It is a great place to check the weather. Very easy to read and very informative. It includes weather quality and has no ads.

Storm brings wind, rain, hail and snow — and really cool temperatures to Arizona
Nineteen degrees below normal.
Let’s say it again: Monday’s high temperature in Phoenix was 19 degrees below normal.
On top of that, a storm system that moved across the state brought wind, rain and hail along with temperatures that were perhaps more familiar to folks in the northwest than Arizonans just weeks away from the start of another summer.
The high temperature recorded at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport was 77 degrees, the National Weather Service said, just five degrees off the lowest-ever high for the day of 72, which was set in 1917.
Much of the storm activity in the Valley was focused in its northern regions. The weather service said a line of showers and thunderstorms moving across the north Valley and Interstate 17 corridor late Monday morning were bringing strong wind gusts, lightning strikes and small hail.
Rainfall totals neared one-quarter of an inch near State Route 51 and Bell Road in Paradise Valley, making it the heaviest-hit area in the Valley, meteorologist Matthew Hirsch said.
Earlier in the day, a significant weather advisory was issued for parts of northern Maricopa County including Anthem, Carefree and Lake Pleasant. The weather service said residents in those areas could expect to see half-inch hail, wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour and brief heavy rain.
Significant weather was also reported in northern Arizona, with Munds Park receiving three inches of snow and areas near the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest getting two inches, meteorologist Tim Steffen said.
Flagstaff reported a high of 42 and a low of 30.
The area around the Interstate 17 corridor between Munds Park and Stoneman Lake was also expected to see hail and rain through the mid-afternoon, with officials warning residents about slick roads and low visibility.
A severe thunderstorm warning was issued late Monday morning for a storm northwest of Payson that had potential to bring quarter-size hail to areas including Pine and Strawberry, and a wind advisory was still in effect Monday evening.
Strong winds were expected to continue Tuesday in northern Arizona, with the weather service anticipating gusts between 40 and 55 miles per hour.
More winter weather, with possible snow, was expected across Northern Arizona Wednesday and Thursday.

(CNN)Texans are scrambling for cover Saturday as reports of tornadoes roll in and much of the central US readies for heavy rain, strong winds and large hail.More than 70 million Americans are under the threat of severe weather from Texas to southern Minnesota, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said. That total on Sunday jumps to 80 million under threat as storms are predicted to move into the Great Lakes area.A tornado destroyed two homes Saturday morning in Comanche County, Oklahoma, southwest of Oklahoma City, said Ashleigh Hensch, an emergency management spokeswoman there. A tornado in Abilene, in central Texas, caused “widespread damage,” CNN affiliated KTXS reported.Areas of Texas and Oklahoma remain under a tornado watch.There also are “better chances” for damaging winds and golf ball-sized hail Saturday afternoon and evening across the zone, the National Weather Service said. In eastern Iowa, dense fog is possible as strong thunderstorms take aim.
This is peak tornado seasonThe Plains have been pounded by strong winds, with at least 34 tornadoes reported since Friday morning across the central US, including Kansas, Nebraska and Texas.Isolated tornado risks were possible across central and eastern Nebraska and in central and northern Kansas, the federal Storm Prediction Center warned. Wind gusts of up to 70 mph were likely, it said.This is peak tornado season, CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said, “with an average of 268 tornadoes countrywide during the month of May.”
Flood potential spikes againSeveral days of warm, sunny weather had seemed to portend a “welcome to summer but that streak will end today,” the weather service warned Kansas City on Friday.“These storms will also produce periods of heavy rain that will once again saturate soils & set the stage for increased flood potential this coming Tue when the next round of heavy rain moves in,” the weather service predicted for Missouri.That’s right, there’s another round.Flood threats across the central Plains will remain high through next week, Van Dam said, with rainfall totals ranging from 1 to 5 inches.“The heavy rain will impact areas that have received significant amounts of rain within the past several weeks,” Van Dam said. “The ground remains very saturated and may elevate the flood threat.”
Mississippi River flood records brokenThe Mississippi River this year has broken records with some of the longest-lasting floods in years. The river in Mississippi has been above flood stage for 133 days straight at Natchez, 90 days at Vicksburg and 89 days at Greenville, the weather service said.In early May, the Mississippi broke its July 9, 1993 record, after heavy rainfall triggered flooding from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, CNN affiliate WQAD reported. The flood gauge in 1993 at Rock Island, Illinois, topped out at 22.63 feet. Its level this month reached 22.64 feet, WQAD said.
Dozens of tornadoes reported in Nebraska, Kansas as severe weather slams central US

Powerful thunderstorms erupted across the central U.S. on Friday afternoon from western Texas through Nebraska, unleashing dozens of tornadoes.
There were nearly 40 preliminary tornado reports in Nebraska and Kansas on Friday and Friday night, according to the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC). Many of these twisters were spawned by two separate violent storms, known as supercells, that tracked for hundreds of miles.
The multi-day severe weather outbreak first got underway Thursday across the parts of Iowa, Illinois and Indiana. Wind gusts of 86 mph were recorded in Washington, Iowa, while hail the size of baseballs fell in Westville, Illinois. A tornado was reported in Sheridan, Illinois, about 50 miles southwest of downtown Chicago. No injuries were reported.More powerful thunderstorms erupted across the central U.S. on Friday afternoon from western Texas through Nebraska. The strongest of the storms focused on central Nebraska, spinning up several large tornadoes.
Around 5:45 p.m. CDT, a tornado was reported near McCook, Nebraska. SPC reported tree and power line damage along with minor damage to a farm. As the storm tracked northeast, is spun up two tornadoes near Farnam, Nebraska around 7:26 p.m. CDT.
Later in the evening, a tornado was reported near Dodge City, Kansas, tracking just southeast of the city.
AccuWeather Extreme Meteorologist Reed Timmer was reporting from Nebraska for the AccuWeather Network and intercepted a tornado on foot near McCook, losing his hat in the process.
“Tornado Alley is certainly waking up with significant severe weather,” Timmer said while breaking down the multi-day outbreak. Earlier this past week, he said this is the worst setup for severe weather he has seen in years.
Meanwhile, Blake Naftel, AccuWeather video journalist, intercepted a tornado near the border of Kansas and Oklahoma on Friday evening.
Some of these same areas were struck with severe weather once again on Saturday.
By Sunday, the threat for damaging storms will continue to push eastward into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

The same storm system that brought an outbreak of severe weather to the South-Central states through the first portion of this week created enough cold air to produce a zone of heavy accumulating snow on its cold side.
Snow records Duluth, Minnesota
Snow fell along a zone from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to Duluth, Minnesota. While not accumulating, snowflakes even managed to fall in parts of Minneapolis.
Through Thursday morning, Duluth was blanketed with 10.9 inches of snow, leading to a number of broken snowfall records, according to data from the National Weather Service.
Several snowfall records have already been broken for the Duluth area. The table in the image shows a list of these records. Stay tuned as the Monthly snowfall total and daily snowfall for today (5/9) are likely to change. #mnwx #mnclimate
The 8.3 inches set the all-time record for most snow on a single day in the month of May. The previous record was 5.5 inches, set on May 10, 1902. The burst of May snow also shattered the record for the snowiest month of May ever in Duluth,eclipsing the previous record of 8.1 total inches of snow set in May of 1954. It was also the snowiest May 8 in Duluth history as the more than 8 inches of snow surpassed the previous record for the day of 5 inches set way back in 1924. Record-keeping began in 1884.
As of Thursday morning, the storm continued to drop snow on Duluth.
While high temperatures rose into the 40s F in most places on Wednesday afternoon, temperatures fell into the middle 30s F by the early evening, allowing for a heavy, wet snow to fall.
Despite overall mild conditions across the region earlier on Wednesday and earlier in the week, the snow fell heavily enough to stick to all surfaces, including roadways.
Roads across northeastern Minnesota, including in the city of Duluth, were “partially covered” with snow, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Numerous crashes were also reported, mostly from vehicles spinning out in the slushy road conditions.
Troopers out w/several crashes and vehicles that slid off the road requiring Trp/tow assistance. This veh was WB on I-94 east of Albany when it ran off the road.
The snow gave some residents the ability to make snowmen and enjoy its overall beauty. Others had to face snow-covered and slippery travel.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Duluth, Minnesota, received multiple reports of thunder and lightning with the snow in the Duluth and Cloquet areas as well as their local office.
Snow continued to fall through much of Wednesday night. Drier conditions will return to end the week. With sunshine and highs returning into the 50s F in most areas, any areas of snow will likely melt by this weekend.
Snow is not uncommon across Minnesota during the month of May. “While it isn’t likely to get heavier amounts of snow during the month of May, it certainly isn’t unprecedented,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde said.
“Five years ago on May 2, Rochester, Minnesota, received 14.5 inches of snow,” Rinde said. “That area of heavier snow extended northeastward through western Wisconsin.“
For the city of Duluth, Minnesota, there is about a 1-in-7 chance for snowfall of an inch or more to fall during the month of May, according to Rinde. The last time this occurred prior to Wednesday was in 2010, when 4.5 inches of snow fell on May 7.
Significant snow fell in parts of Colorado as well. Winter storm warnings and watches were posted in and around the Boulder and Colorado Springs areas on Thursday.

May mayhem: Tornadoes, storms, floods, snow wreak weather havoc across US
The first seasonal record distinguishing types of el Nino events over the last 400 years says the pattern has dramatically changed in recent years. Veuer’s Josh King has that story.
May continues to bring a wild potpourri of violent weather across a large portion of the nation: Tens of millions of people are in the path of the storms.
A day after at least a dozen tornadoes ripped through Texas and Oklahoma, more rounds of severe storms slammed portions of the South on Wednesday. Still more storms were forecast for Thursday
“The severe weather threat on both Wednesday and Thursday will shift away from the wide-open spaces of the High Plains to the more heavily populated areas on the lower Plains & the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys,” AccuWeather warned. Over 13 million people live where severe storms are possible Wednesday, the Storm Prediction Center said.
Meanwhile, ongoing bouts of drenching rain continue to pelt waterlogged portions of the region, exacerbating relentless flooding. The Houston area was particularly hard hit on Tuesday, as nearly 10 inches of rain soaked the metro area, inundating homes and roads.
The heavy rain prompted flash flood emergencies in some communities because of rapidly rising floodwaters.
The storms soaked parts of Texas that have been repeatedly hit by flooding in recent years, including the deadly and devastating floods from Hurricane Harvey in 2017.The sodden weather wasn’t confined to Texas. “There is ongoing flooding from Texas to Wisconsin … and more rain over the next three days will make flooding worse in some locations,” the National Weather Service said.
Evacuations were under way in portions of Kansas, where flooding is forcing people from their homes, closing roads and prompting schools to call off classes.
More than 20 million people live where flooding is possible this week, the weather service said.
Flooding is likely to continue along a portion of the Mississippi River and perhaps others over the central United States into June as rounds of excessive rain continue, AccuWeather said.

In Missouri, almost a dozen levees already have been breached or threatened in recent days.
Chris Gamm, presiding commissioner for Pike County, Mo., told USA TODAY that some communities along the Mississippi River have been flooded for two weeks. The county’s levees all blew out over the weekend, he said.
“The governor is going to see if there is some emergency relief we can get from federal and state people,” he said. “Apparently they can’t employ emergency resource assets until the water goes down and they can see the damage. But some areas have been underwater for two weeks.”
“There are several thousand acres of farmland that are already covered. It’s pretty drastic,” Gamm said.
Wintry North, West
Snow was also expected overnight Wednesday and into Thursday in northeastern Minnesota, far northern Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where a few inches of snow could accumulate, the weather service said.
“Snow is also likely in the West, and accumulating snow could be heavy for higher elevations,” weather service meteorologist Jennifer Tate said.
Heavy snow is expected to fall over the central Rockies where 1 to 2 feet of new snow is likely through Friday evening. Up to 30 inches of snow is possible for the San Juan mountains of southwestern Colorado and northwestern New Mexico.
