The placement of this high pressure allows for the increasing the potential for cold, stormy weather in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The longer the high pressure sits - the longer the pattern is likely to conti...

We often hear in the news about the destruction of tornadoes. When we feel the wrath of an EF-5 tornado, the world is in awe of its power and devastation. Typically an EF-5 tornado, the strongest category on the Enhanced Fujita Tornado Scale, has wind speeds of over 200 mph, with the power to 100% level entire communities. These tornadoes can get to be 1 to 2 miles wide, with the widest ever recorded to be a 2013 tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma. This tornado, an EF-3 tornado, was about 2.6 miles in total width. With that in perspective, look at what is occurring in western Mexico. Hurricane Patricia, an F-5 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, currently has sustained winds of 200 mph,...
