The moderate risk unfortunately verified today with a tornado outbreak occurring in Mississippi. One storm chaser’s vehicle was flipped in the tornado in Rolling Fork. Many other storm chasers are doing search and rescue in multiple towns across Mississippi. Lots of images on Facebook from the usual contributors. Also Ryan Hall on Twitter.

And another day if you are in a position to armchair chase (Sunday there so there may be a good number live streaming soon, but it's not an easy area to chase)

Severe weather season is well and truly alive in the US. A moderate risk for tomorrow and another system lining up for next week.

https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day2otlk.html

The long range is looking very interesting with systems rolling through every few days.

Jane & Clyve have started the Journey visiting family in the UK heading to the US. Daniel is already there doing the necessary prep for his season. I'm starting to get excited at the prospect of finally getting back (for a chasecation). Tomorrow looks ok, but Wednesday (Here, Tue in the US) looks even more interesting.

Goodness me this is one hell of an outbreak. It has been a number of years since we had one like this. I’m assuming the return of El Niño is a contributing factor?

EN isn't there yet. More like the recent SSW has something to do with it. Downstream impacts from SSWs can occur for months after.

There is model agreement for a big upper ridge to gradually move in from the west onto the Plains to annoy the early May chasers.

Nearly qualifies as a "Gorilla" hail stone. The Gorilla cluster hailstone has more jaggerty parts and can cause a lot of damage.
I would wear a hard hat if I was filming one these hailstorms with Gorillas falling.
