Tuesday's Storm Team 4cast by John Malan:
There is a chance for showers and thunderstorms again across southern Wisconsin, and some of those could be strong in the early part of the day Tuesday.
A huge low pressure system over Minnesota moves east to northeast slowly through Tuesday, tomorrow and Thursday. Each day has the opportunity for precipitation, with today’s rainfall coming from thunderstorms and the next two days from rain or rain showers.
Monday’s terrible tornado incident in Moore, Oklahoma is just another example of a tornado myth that could cause someone to be surprised or unaware when a tornado threatens a location.
Many folks feel tornadoes cannot strike in the same place twice, similar to lightning. The truth is that tornadoes and lightning can strike the same location many times, and there are numerous examples. Moore is a southern suburb of Oklahoma City and was hit by an incredibly strong EF5 tornado with 318 mile per hour winds on May 3 in 1999, just another example of a location getting hit more than once.
There have been a few other mind-boggling examples of tornadoes striking the same location more than once. In Cordell, Kansas a tornado hit on May 20 three years in a row from 1916 to 1918. In Guy, Ark., three tornadoes once hit the same church on the same day.
