Snow, Rain, Tornadoes.. DRACO is leaving a legacy
This is a classic Tornado signature that screams severe weather in the south as snow and cold rain plaque Chicago and Milwaukee.
Down below the Mason Dixie Line are severe, violent storms.
Early, predawn tornadoes are the worst kind as there is little early warning without an alarm sounding in town or on a weather radio. They go under the radar while we sleep..
