March 2, 1989 
Snow and high winds plagued the western U.S. Up to 16 inches of snow was reported south of Seattle WA, and more than two feet of snow blanketed the Sierra Nevada Range of California. Winds gusted to 89 mph at Hidden Peak UT, and reached 92 mph at Peavine CA. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 2, 1990 
Mild weather continued across the northern tier of states. Highs of 52 degrees at Saint Johnsbury VT, 63 degrees at Olympia WA, and 64 degrees at Seattle WA were records for the date. (The National Weather Summary) 

March 2, 2012
A strong 'April-like' storm system moved across the southeast United States. A strong cold front moved into north Georgia Friday evening, March 2, and continued into central Georgia early Saturday morning, March 3. The strongest tornado in the event was an EF-3 tornado which touched down in Haralson County and moved into Paulding County. Some of the worst damage was along Bethlehem Church Road in Haralson County where a repair shop was destroyed and a house collapsed, injuring a person inside. In Paulding County the hardest hit area was near the Paulding County Airport. Three to four planes were flipped and a jet and hanger were destroyed. (NWS Atlanta)

    • MD 1494 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 512... FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHWESTERN ND INTO FAR NORTHWESTERN SD Mesoscale Discussion 1494 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0737 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of southwestern ND into far northwestern SD Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512... Valid 170037Z - 170200Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 continues. SUMMARY...In addition to a large hail threat, concern is increasing for isolated tornadoes this evening across portions of southwestern ND into far northwestern SD. An upgrade to a Tornado Watch may be needed if surface-based supercells develop. DISCUSSION...0024Z VWP from KBIS radar shows a strongly veering low-level wind profile. Storms are beginning to develop this evening along and just to the cool side of a boundary located over southwestern ND. The east-northeasterly low-level winds present to the north of the surface boundary quickly veer to westerly within the 0-3 km layer. Resultant effective SRH of around 150-300 m2/s2 should support updraft rotation in the low levels, and concern is increasing that isolated tornadoes could occur with any sustained supercell thunderstorms that develop in the next couple of hours and which can remain surface based. Large hail will also be a concern given the discrete mode expected and 50-55 kt of effective bulk shear which will support mid-level storm rotation as well. Observational/radar trends will be very closely monitored this evening across southwestern ND and far northwestern SD for signs of increasing low-level storm rotation. Portions of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 may be upgraded to a Tornado Watch if conditions warrant. But, it remains unclear whether supercells will be slightly elevated. ..Gleason/Grams.. 07/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...ABR...BIS...UNR...

    • MD 1493 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 511... FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST MONTANA INTO FAR NORTHERN WYOMING Mesoscale Discussion 1493 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0729 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of southeast Montana into far northern Wyoming Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 511... Valid 170029Z - 170200Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 511 continues. SUMMARY...The severe threat continues mainly across the eastern portions of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 0511, with the strongest storms moving towards Severe Thunderstorm Watch 0512 over the next couple of hours. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threats. DISCUSSION...Outflow dominant supercells have been moving across Big Horn, Rosebud, and Powder River Counties in MT over the past few hours. Based on recent surface observations at GEY and SHR, cold outflow has surged ahead of the supercells. As low-level shear is expected to remain poor across the area, the storms are expected to remain outflow dominant in nature, with a few damaging gusts possible (evidence via GEY ASOS report of a 55 knot gust within the past hour). Given the steep lapse rates in place (7+ C/km throughout the troposphere), large hail will also remain a concern. The most intense storms are moving towards a more unstable airmass, with up to 2500 J/kg MLCAPE residing across far northeast WY, and points eastward. The storms across southeast MT are likely to merge with other mature multicells/transient supercells along the WY/SD border across WW 0512 over the next few hours, where damaging wind gusts will become the primary threat. ..Squitieri/Grams.. 07/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1492 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 512... FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN WY INTO SOUTHWESTERN SD AND WESTERN NE Mesoscale Discussion 1492 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0700 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of northeastern WY into southwestern SD and western NE Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512... Valid 170000Z - 170130Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 continues. SUMMARY...Relatively greater severe potential should exist across northeastern WY into southwestern SD over the next couple of hours. Overall severe threat will likely remain more isolated in western NE. DISCUSSION...A small arcing band of convection will move from east-central into northeastern WY and southwestern SD this evening. The airmass downstream of this activity remains moderately to strongly unstable, with MLCAPE generally 2000-3000 J/kg. Enhanced mid-level west-southwesterly flow associated with an ejecting shortwave trough over the northern Rockies and Great Basin overlies this region. Corresponding effective bulk shear values of 40-50 kt will promote continued storm organization and intensity. A relatively greater potential for both large hail and severe wind gusts should exist across portions of northeastern WY and southwestern SD in the next couple of hours as ongoing storms spread northeastward. Farther south into western NE, the severe threat will likely remain more isolated due to weak ridging remaining over this area. Also, recent mesoanalysis suggests weak convective inhibition exists across western into central NE, which may act to suppress/weaken storms in the western NE Panhandle as they move eastward this evening. Additional watch issuance into more of western NE will probably not be needed this evening. ..Gleason.. 07/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1491 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN MT Mesoscale Discussion 1491 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0555 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of northeastern MT Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 162255Z - 170100Z Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent SUMMARY...An isolated supercell thunderstorm will contain both a large hail and damaging wind threat as it moves across northeastern MT over the next couple of hours. Watch issuance is unlikely unless additional severe storms develop. DISCUSSION...An isolated storm has developed just east of Glasgow MT, possibly in association with a low-amplitude shortwave trough over western SK. This storm has developed mid-level rotation per recent KGGW radar velocity data, and 30-40 kt of effective bulk shear will likely continue to support supercell characteristics in the short term. Both large hail and severe wind gusts will remain possible with this isolated storm as it moves slowly eastward into a slightly more favorable thermodynamic environment in far northeastern MT. At this point, it remains unclear if any additional storms will develop across this region through the early evening. Watch issuance remains unlikely in the short term, mainly due to the very isolated severe threat posed by this single storm. However, watch probability would increase if more convection developed and subsequently strengthened. ..Gleason/Grams.. 07/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
