Why tornadoes behave the way they do. …
I'm just collating today's BOM charts (and subject to the usual waivers) it looks like there is a surge in the tornado strikes for this spell.
It is not repeated in today's North Atlantic though, so…
The lunar phase is a perfect one for thunderstorms. (Also no longer shown on the North Atlantic today.)
What is shown on the MetO's chart run is a northerly High moving to southern Europe, allowing dying Lows to pass through an anticyclonic sandwich (with the other High sitting on the shores of Norway.)
Activity seems low on the NEIC list so far today.
The main reason for posting with this headline is that the belt of stormy weather that surrounds Antarctica is holding off from the coast.
The black palls of depression that Do hit the line don't seem (to me at least) to contain much threat of earthquakes. It is, of course, summer so there is no daylight on the dark side of those storms.
Presumably the precipitation is lifting too soon?
