Monitoring of concurrent, co-located tornado and flash flood (TORFF) warnings

Below is the most recent image showing overlapping tornado and flash flood warning polygons thus far in 2020. Warnings are shown if they overlap in space and are valid within 30 minutes of one another, calculated as described in Nielsen et al. (2015, Weather and Forecasting). The images are updated once per day at approximately 1045 UTC. The images are zoomed in on the region where overlapping TORFF warnings are most frequently observed.

Images last updated 1130 UTC Saturday February 22 2020. (click image to embiggen)
