Not a problem, and i completely understand stay safe, so after this morning our attention turns to the afternoon so we are not in the clear at all today.

Something i wanted to discuss is the Bowing segments which appear like a backwards C on radar



this line is intensifying as it cycles and progressing north east as you can see it begins to bow outward where significant wind damage is possible, and brief tornadic spin ups on the leading edge are possible as well. Once the first line moves through the severe threat will decrease, and mainly just rain. After this mornings activity a lull will occur this is what i am watching closely, to see if clouds give way to sunshine and also any boundaries left over from this mornings storms.

If thunderstorms can initiate this afternoon, once again a very severe outbreak may occur, stay safe y'all

I'm in the Austin area, and there was a tornado warning in Lampasas county which is a half hour or so away from me. We should be fine until later tonight, when they expect some pretty serious storms to come our way. We never usually get it as bad as the Dallas area though.

Frisco about to pick up 7 inches of rain in one hour? Crap. I think I'm going to hang around home for a little bit.

After the foot and a half we got in a flash flood about 8 years ago I'm not really phased by freak weather. Last year we had another foot plus I recall diverting all over dfw while trying to get work done.

I was in the bathroom playing chess on the smartphone 3x in one nite December due to tornado warnings. Never experienced one up close though.

Kevin Saunders is in the thick of it right now. These storm chasers are a little insane.

I'm alright but it's still going. Heard hail and there's a lot thumping and banging going on outside. I'm up on third floor facing south and west.

It's looking really green outside. Anything new on tv? No tornadoes? I'm posting from phone

Minor hail here didn't sound too large, came on real strong, real quick... flashed over maybe 20 minutes or so. I hear the cars sloshing it all around, and the thunder, but the bulk seems to have passed.

Not much damage but there are roof tiles in the street. That must've been the sounds I heard.

Yea this is what it looked like at my house, as stated it wasn't very much. This afternoon i might go chasing out west where dry line initiation of storms might occur, assuming i can make the time, here's a video from my front door.

Also notice behind this complex of storms clear skys follow, this is NOT good as heating will occur and almost guarantee dryline initiation with atmospheric instability at incredible rates. Stay tuned we will wait and see.

Yes, I can see blue sky to the west on the back edge of this system here in Oklahoma. If the sun comes out, it will heat things up. Might get humid.

It's been reasonably quiet today in the southern part of the state. A line of storms has built in west Texas from the south to the north. Looking real nasty out west. Can't help but believe they will roll across the state tonight.

Everyone here in the state, take care.
