I was just making sure you are here to watch over us. Just saw a report of tennis ball size hair in Breckenridge.

Bad stuff has gone around me the last couple times...hoping...

I'm here and I will continue to update, we need to watch for breaks in the clouds which could add further instability to an already unstable atmosphere (as I watch the sun come out in wylie) this is concerning if we get up into the 80s as that dry line approaches storms could become particularly severe. I will continue to update.

Also the storm in the yellow hatched square (Decatur) (severe thunderstorm warning) may be rotating it's showing the C signature in the southwest quadrant of the storm, wouldn't be surprised if this storm is tornado warned shortly.



As you can see many storms are firing just west of the Dallas ft worth area moving our direction.

Will keep everyone updated on what things are like just southeast of Ft Worth as this thing moves on.

Luckily my office let us work from home the rest of the day so I am able to ensure my dogs are safe inside.

Do you have a preferred station to watch weather? The did just report a wall cloud in Wise.

(for some reason this replied to Texasgirl and she was no where near)

Wfaa, & Steve McCauley through his Facebook has very good updates, but typically I am glued to model analysis and radar, also I discuss among fellow storm chasers/weather watchers. But yes wfaa channel 8 is about as good as you will get via T.V meteriologists.

NWS forecast discussion for those interested



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX 243 PM CDT WED MAR 30 2016 .DISCUSSION... EARLY AFTERNOON SATELLITE IMAGERY CONTINUES TO SHOW SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUD COVER MAINLY WEST OF INTERSTATE 35. TEMPERATURES HAVE WARMED INTO THE UPPER 70S AND LOWER 80S WITH THE DRYLINE MIXING EAST TOWARD WICHITA FALLS AND EXTENDING SOUTHWEST TOWARD SWEETWATER. LARGE SCALE FORCING FOR ASCENT CONTINUES TO SPREAD OVER THE AREA AND SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM LIFTING SURFACE BASED PARCELS ACROSS NORTH TEXAS THROUGH THIS EVENING. THE 18Z FWD SOUNDING DID INDICATE THE PRESENCE OF TWO WEAK CAPS...LIKELY THE RESULT OF SOME SUBSIDENCE IN THE WAKE OF EARLIER CONVECTION. OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS OF SEVERE PARAMETERS INDICATES THAT MOST OF NORTH TEXAS IS QUITE UNSTABLE WITH 1500-2000 J/KG CAPE WITH POCKETS OF HIGHER INSTABILITY IN AREAS WHERE THE SUN HAS PEAKED OUT. WIDESPREAD INHIBITION CONTINUES TO WEAKEN WHICH WILL SUPPORT MORE CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS. THE DRYLINE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE EAST THIS EVENING AND SCATTERED SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE ACROSS NORTH TEXAS WITH THE BEST CHANCES ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CWA. STEEP LAPSE RATES WILL SUPPORT A VERY LARGE HAIL THREAT AND DAMAGING WIND THREAT. THE TORNADO THREAT WILL LIKELY BE LIMITED INITIALLY OWING TO GENERALLY WEAK DEEP LAYER SHEAR AND A BACKED MID LEVEL WIND PROFILE. THE WIND PROFILE IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A LITTLE MORE FAVORABLE LATER THIS EVENING AS THE STORMS CONTINUE EAST SO THIS POTENTIAL WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED. CONCERNING THE FORECAST...WILL HAVE THE HIGHEST POPS SPREADING EAST INTO THE METROPLEX ALONG THE I-35 CORRIDOR AND NORTH TO THE RED RIVER THROUGH EARLY EVENING WITH A PROGRESSION RATHER QUICKLY INTO THE ARKLATEX BY MIDNIGHT. OVERNIGHT...AS THE MAIN TROUGH REMAINS TO THE WEST...WE WILL STILL BE IN A FAVORABLE AREA FOR ASCENT. MOST OF THE MODEL GUIDANCE BRING A SLUG OF MID LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS NORTH TEXAS AFTER MIDNIGHT. IF THIS PANS OUT WITH STEEP LAPSE RATES STILL IN PLACE...ISOLATED ELEVATED CONVECTION MAY DEVELOP. HAIL WOULD BE THE MAIN THREAT WITH ANY STORMS LATE OVERNIGHT.

My wife is driving up 287 and said looking west and north is a lot of lightning and "the big scary greenish clouds" lol.

She should be home soon then we will button down and hope the hail doesn't get too bad. Looks like a whole line is headed our way for the next couple hours...

Ironically I just got off the phone with our Nationwide insurance adjuster was going to check our roof today LOL from the hail damage from a couple weeks ago...

Also hearing rumbles of thunder.

Keep us posted - my good bud is in Joshua and said he was out front of his place lookin west for a tornado and the sirens were going off...

I'm nervous cause he's in a pre-fab home... Any word on how strong this rotation might be?

a reply to: SonOfThor

the rotation has died down a bit, but it could re-intensify at any moment. If hes got a good shot maybe he could take pictures of the wall cloud. It appears he should be seeing the brunt of it within the ten mins the storm is no longer tornado warned but straight line wind damage is possible and of course rotation as well. He should take cover ASAP to be on the safe side
