A large tornado spawned from an isolated supercell moved across Northeastern Montana on Monday evening, within TWS Tornado Watch 35
TWS Tornado Watch 35 was issued at 1:40pm Central Daylight Time, well ahead time. This area was pinpointed as prime for supercells containing the probability of tornadoes.
Eyewitness accounts of the tornado say that it started off the ground for ten minutes before moving into richer low level moisture. It then touched the ground in what is known as a stove-pipe tornado. Intensity will not be available until survey teams go out on Tuesday so that information will come on Tuesday evening. Photographs of the tornado (in the article) show what you’d normally see in the plains, but Montana? Not so much.
“An upper level system is moving through the region,” said TheWeatherSpace.com Senior Meteorologist Kevin Martin. “The Northern Plains, Midwest and Michigan need to watch from Thursday into Friday as I am seeing dynamics favorable for a severe thunderstorm event. This will carry into the Ohio River Valley by Friday, and into the Northeast by Saturday. Tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds will be likely then. I’ll speak more on it on Tuesday as the official article gets released.”
Tornado season is just getting started in the Southern Canada to Northern United States regions. Stay with TheWeatherSpace.com online and on Facebook for the latest. It is unclear about the warnings and damage (if any) in Southern Canada from this event. Maybe someone from there can comment.
