Good to see you all on this wonderful day, and i hope all of you had a great Christmas and have a happy new year, having said that we are on the cusp of a historical storm which will include (in the warm sector) tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and blizzard conditions on the back side of this powerful Low pressure system that is still digging south eastwards near the Texas New mexico border.

I have included a picture of this feature:


A tornado watch has been issued for north central Texas and atmospheric conditions are becoming very favorable for discrete rotating super cells ahead of the cold front. All of north Texas is in an "enhanced risk" category and with the breaks in clouds we are receiving this will only further destabilize our atmosphere.

Some words from SPC



...SUMMARY...
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE SCATTERED TODAY THROUGH TONIGHT FROM
SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS NORTHEAST INTO THE OZARKS AND LOWER OHIO VALLEY.
THE GREATEST SEVERE POTENTIAL...INCLUDING A FEW TORNADOES...IS
EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST TEXAS AND SOUTHERN
OKLAHOMA.

...SYNOPSIS...

MID AND UPPER-LEVEL WIND MAXIMA FROM SRN CA INTO BAJA AND THE GULF
OF CA WILL DEVELOP SEWD INTO NWRN MEXICO...CONTRIBUTING TO THE
OVERALL DEEPENING OF THE PARENT CLOSED LOW AS IT TRACKS FROM SRN AZ
TO FAR WRN TX AND CHIHUAHUA MEXICO BY 12Z/SUNDAY. THIS PATTERN
EVOLUTION WILL RESULT IN A CORRIDOR OF MID-LEVEL HEIGHT FALLS/DCVA
SPREADING EWD ACROSS NWRN MEXICO INTO SWRN TX THIS PERIOD.

AT THE SURFACE...AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE DEEPENING OVER CHIHUAHUA
MEXICO WILL DEVELOP GENERALLY EWD ALONG A SWD-SURGING COLD FRONT
INTO THE TX BIG BEND BY THIS EVENING BEFORE REACHING THE TX HILL
COUNTRY BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

...SRN PLAINS INTO OZARK PLATEAU THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT...

12Z RAOB DATA INDICATE THE PRESENCE OF A VERY MOIST AIR MASS IN
PLACE ACROSS THE PRE-FRONTAL WARM SECTOR WITH LOWEST-100-MB
MEAN-MIXING RATIOS OF 13-16 G/KG BENEATH MODESTLY STEEP MID-LEVEL
LAPSE RATES OF AROUND 7 C/KM. AND WHILE WIDESPREAD CLOUDS WILL
LIMIT THE DEGREE OF BOUNDARY-LAYER WARMING...THE RICH LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE WILL CONTRIBUTE TO AFTERNOON MLCAPE VALUES OF 1000-1500
J/KG.

TSTMS /MAINLY ELEVATED/ ARE RAPIDLY DEVELOPING THIS MORNING ACROSS
WRN NORTH TX AND OK WITHIN A ZONE OF STRONG WAA AND ISENTROPIC
ASCENT ALONG A 40-50 KT LLJ...IMMEDIATELY TO THE NORTH OF A SURFACE
FRONT STRETCHING FROM A WEAK LOW NEAR FST NEWD TO NEAR SPS AND THEN
EWD TO N OF TXK. SOME OF THESE ELEVATED STORMS MAY CONTAIN
MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL.

THE STRONG LOW-LEVEL WAA SHOULD ALLOW FOR THE CONTINUED NWD MOVEMENT
OF THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONT THROUGH THE RED RIVER VALLEY AND OZARK
PLATEAU BEFORE IT IS OVERTAKEN BY A POWERFUL COLD FRONT SURGING SWD
THROUGH THE SRN HIGH PLAINS. AS SUCH...THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR
SURFACE-BASED SUPERCELLS --AND ATTENDANT TORNADO THREAT-- WILL EXIST
WITHIN THIS WAA REGIME --AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT-- THIS AFTERNOON
INTO EVENING FROM PORTIONS OF CNTRL TX INTO SERN OK AND WRN AR WHERE
A FAVORABLE OVERLAP OF MODERATE INSTABILITY AND STRONG VERTICAL
SHEAR WILL RESIDE. OTHERWISE...EXPECT STORMS FORMING ALONG THE COLD
FRONT TO QUICKLY BECOME UNDERCUT AND SLIGHTLY ELEVATED WITH THE
PRIMARY HAZARDS BEING MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL AND LOCALLY STRONG
WINDS.

LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE IS CONSISTENT WITH EARLIER DATA IN SUGGESTING
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SEPARATE BAND OF TSTMS OVER SWRN TX THIS
EVENING WITHIN THE PRIMARY ZONE OF DEEP-LAYER FORCING FOR ASCENT
PRECEDING THE UPPER LOW. THIS ACTIVITY WILL SPREAD EWD ACROSS THE
EDWARDS PLATEAU REGION TONIGHT WITH A RISK FOR DAMAGING WINDS AND
HAIL BEFORE BECOMING UNDERCUT BY THE SWD-SURGING COLD FRONT.


And as you can see we already have a tornado warning in Oklahoma the red square indicating a Tornado warned area


From NWS regarding the warned area

If you wish to watch a live stream of the storm chasers out today in Texas here is a link

Storm chasers live stream


I will primarily focus on the storms in Texas which are already firing however they could become severe at anytime, but between the 5pm - 10pm i expect them to become more active as the cold front nears. this is a one two punch, on the back side of this low will be blizzard conditions with snow drifts west of Abilene, nearing 10 ft! Everyone be careful stay safe and keep your eyes on the sky, and hopefully after all the craziness we can enjoy building a snowman Monday morning.

These storms that are firing just south of Dallas are moving north, one is already tornado warned the HRRR model shows these storms becoming more organized and rotating all of north Texas needs to be aware.



To illustrate just how dynamic and powerful this system is we have blizzard warning and winter storm warnings/watches and tornado watches,some overlapping, and all within a stones throw of eachother. This is a very powerful and dynamic storm that will effect us over the next two days, also flooding will occur in north Texas with upwards of six inches of rain expected before a change over to snow Monday morning, get ready and hunker down.

yes sir no problem, everyone stay safe. I always get concerned when such a dynamic system comes to fruition they say its not a matter of if but when a ef5 tornado hits Dallas directly, which would be catastrophic.

HI Tech, my Granddaughters are supposed to be coming in from Muskogee tomorrow.... I am 45 miles N. of Springfield Mo. Any problems?

Also what is the outlook between the 28th and the 5th when they return?

Thanks, we put off Christmas until they arrive, so hopefully all will be well.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
