HAARP Predictions Correct? Las Vegas at Risk for Tornadoes and Severe Storms This Afternoon

Fact checked

Late yesterday, we posted THIS ARTICLE from a HAARP researcher entitled, “WARNING: HAARP Status Pink Alert Detected Over Western United States”.  The original article stated:

From Before It’s News (source)

Alert States: NV/AZ/UT/CO/WY/ID/CA

Alert Level: PINK

Detected: 9/25/2014

The Salt Lake City, Utah reports have gone from red alert to pink alert, which is the highest the scale goes here at HAARP Status Network.com. The scale has been reached and a pink alert means that an imminent threat is going to hit, whether the weather turns for the worst or an earthquake hits.

Keep in mind that we do not understand these readings either, however longwaves this strong have contributed to both seismic and atmospheric unrest. Yellowstone National Park sits within the alert zone.

Yellow – Slight change is expected, but overall the weather pattern is not being affected.

Orange – Change is expected and the reading indicates between then and and a few days it will happen. This is considered a moderate reading, which if a short spike can be a nearby event such as severe weather, unexpected lightning, or a tornado.

Red – Significant change is expected. Anything over M7 is rare and special attention must be directed when readings go seven and higher. Severe storms are associated with this reading and so are Earthquakes, which if a short spike can be a nearby event and a long duration and slow build being a large scale change.

Pink – Associated with tornado outbreaks and/or major severe weather events that cause widespread damage. This also can be strong hurricanes and blizzards.

White – Only seen a few times, one of the times was Hurricane Sandy, many days before she formed. This is the highest of the alerts, considered off the charts.


Well, here’s something you don’t see too often. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for severe weather across parts of the desert southwest—including Las Vegas and surroundings—for the chance of tornadoes, 60+ MPH wind gusts, and hail larger than quarters.

Severe weather isn’t all that uncommon in the southwestern United States, but this is unusual because it includes an unusually high risk for tornadoes.


Southerly winds are shoving a pocket of warm, moist air north from the Gulf of California into parts of the southwestern United States, giving the atmosphere enough moisture and instability necessary to support thunderstorm activity. The above map shows the predicted dew points from this morning’s run of the NAM valid for this afternoon.

Remember that beautiful low pressure system that’s brought parts of the West Coast some much-needed rain? That deep trough is also producing some pretty hefty wind shear that’s approaching the southwest. Winds up in the jet stream (about 30k feet up) are greater than 70 MPH in some spots. Add in the fact that the winds are ever so slightly veering (twisting) with altitude, and it will allow the thunderstorms to strengthen and reach severe levels.

What are the risks?


The above map shows the risk for tornadoes this afternoon. 5% warrants concern anywhere in the country, so it’s worth paying close attention today for residents in and around Las Vegas. Clark County, Nevada has reported just one tornado in the past ten years, showing how rare they are in this region. Tornadoes need ample low-level moisture in order to develop, and that’s one ingredient that’s normally in short supply around these parts…except for today.

Here’s the risk for damaging winds today, which are the most common type of severe weather in the southwest. The risk for large hail (quarter size or larger) is roughly the same.

According to the SPC, all modes of severe weather are possible today.
