Fire TornadoNovember 21st, 2012 at 1:58 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Have you seen the video of the fire tornado near Curtin Springs, Australia. Shooter, Chris Tangey said “it sounded like a jet plane flying by“. Courtesy Alice Springs Film and Television on YouTube. Here’s video of a previous fire tornado in Brazil and one from Hawaii.
Model update: I can’t show you this or link to it (it’s on the fee-based Professional site at Accu-Weather), but you ought to see the JMA (Japanese model) for 168 and 192 hours. I don’t think it’s right…it has the 850mb temp. down to -19C here and a monster low pressure system near Toledo. It’s sure give us a lot of wind and probably some decent snow. The NAM (Caribou) gives G.R. a high of 62 on Thanksgiving Day, the European is low 60s. All the models keep us chilly from Friday into early next week, with afternoon temperatures from the mid 30s to low 40s.
