Here in West-Central Minnesota we are experiencing some intense weather patterns again. Tornados have been spotted not too far North of my location in Montevideo, Minnesota. And right now, as I type this, thunder, lightning, rain and wind are happening. But, for me, that raises a question.
When does light rain and light winds become heavy rain and heavy winds? Is there a definite amount needed for the upgrade? Is there a tapering scale used to elevate the status?
Warnings, watches, weather. It’s all so confusing to me. And I just said to my wife a little bit ago, Why does this happen during the night? I wanna see this happen!! I have been watching a video on Facebook taken locally of a tornado coming down out of the sky!! Quite intense.
Keep your eyes to the skies, my friends. You never know when the weather can change from good to bad, or bad to worse.
