My apologies...It must've been an error because they showed it again and it was back to orange. But if it upgrades to red then I will post with a link! (I originally saw it on Fox4 news with Evan the meteorologist)

The timeline is supposed to be between and 5 and 6pm but, of course, it could change.

Oh no worries at all - I get confused because some local stations or AccuWeather show red when the SPC is showing a different color for the same area...

I just hope this doesn't hit during the drive home - ugh...

It may very well move to a moderate risk, within the next thirty mins... The model data is fairly wide spread showing rotating supercells, these will not congeal into a squall so the individual cells will have more instability to work with.. When I get more time I will do a write up. Today may just be the day when the threat of this weeks volatility are realized.

I wonder how many people are going to write today's forecast off since Tuesday didn't really measure up to all the hype.

Good point...

While I could see the models showing a very volatile week this week, it is always difficult to nail down the mescoscale features but i believe today is the day to be on the watch..

and they should NOT take this any lighter than Tuesday, here's a discussion just issues by NWS here in the Dallas area emphasis mine..




A VERY MOIST AND UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT WILL COINCIDE WITH STRONGAFTERNOON HEATING TO PRODUCE A VERY UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT ACROSS THE WARM SECTOR THIS MORNING. IN ADDITION...LARGE SCALE ASCENT WILL INCREASE BY 2 PM CDT AND AFTER FOR THE RAPID DEVELOPMENT OF SEVERE STORMS ALONG OR JUST WEST OF I-35 IN AN AREA OF ENHANCED ISENTROPIC ASCENT. INITIALLY...DISCRETE SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOW LCL/S WILL BE POSSIBLE...AS SURFACE DEW PT TEMPERATURES ARE HIGH AND IN THE LOWER-MID 70S WITHIN THE WARM SECTOR. ALL MODES OF SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE POSSIBLE. THE BIG WILD CARD LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL BE HOW LONG DISCRETE STORMS WILL OCCUR...AS LARGE-SCALE ASCENT OCCURS QUICKLY AT CONVECTIVE TEMPERATURE AND MAY RESULT IN INFLOW INTERRUPTION WITH IF STORMS BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD SOONER. IF ACTIVITY BECOMES TOO WIDESPREAD TOO FAST...THEN DISCRETE SUPERCELLS WILL BE LESS LIKELY. HOWEVER...BOWING LINE SEGMENTS OR LEWPS WITH TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE INTO THE EVENING HOURS DUE TO VERY STRONG LOW LEVEL WINDS AND DEEP LAYER SHEAR ACROSS THE AREA WITH CURVED LOW LEVEL HODOGRAPHS NOTED ON FORCAST SOUNDSING. VERY LARGE HAIL WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY WITH DISCRETE CELLS AS INSTABILITY WILL BE PUSHING BETWEEN 3000-4000 J/KG WITH PLENTY OF LOW LEVEL CAPE BELOW CLOUD BASE FOR POTENTIAL TORNADOGENESIS. SEVERAL OFFICES INCLUDING OURS ARE SENDING UP SPECIAL MIDDAY SOUNDINGS TO ASSESS OUR ENVIRONMENT AND POTENTIAL AND THE FEELING IS THIS COULD BE A BIG SEVERE WEATHER DAY.

I just got home from Plano and thought the sky was rather dark there. The heat was oppressive!!

Sure enough, there's a small pocket of storms going through there. I also see a long line forming around Stephenville, southwest of Dallas.

Yes I was just under a quick heavy down pour and some lightning as these small storms formed.. It's steamy and wind shear is high and cape values are extreme.. perfect environment for a severe weather outbreak, stay safe

Is this type of environment conducive to long track / extremely large tornadoes, or is that something that is still difficult to predict?

FYI FOR ANYONE TRAVELING ON I-20 Westbound, right around 360 the entire west bound lanes were totally closed down (all lanes) from a tractor trailer wreck earlier. Please be aware the traffic is still bad there for your commutes home / with these pending storms...

Stay safe! I'll keep everyone posted on what I see on my drive home (high overpasses so good vantage points).

tornadoes are likely however long track tornadoes do not appear likely at this time two things, first if these clusters of storm continue to fire and become very numerous and wide spread it will diminish some of the threat because the instability will be used up, also it now appears after these storms firing this evening will form into a squall line west of Ft Worth and move through the area, however tornadoes do appear likely.

Tornado warning near Sherman and a little north of Howe. This is almost same place as Tuesday's tornado. Yikes!

This is actually along Interstate 75. Good grief, people are leaving work now!

Drove home along 287 N, and just off to my west was some seriously dark and low clouds heading up toward Ft. Worth. Didn't see any rotation though, just lots of rain.

For those meteorological types - on my whole drive home the air just looked hazy underneath the thick overcast. Does that have something to do with why the cell hitting Ft. Worth doesn't have any real indication for tornadic activity?

I don't know but they said there's a super cell in Prosper and that's just a few minutes from my area. I live on the Frisco/Prosper border.

Stay safe and keep us posted! My wife and I are safely home and relaxing / keeping an eye on the weather. Some counties north and also over east sound like they're getting hit hard

I'm watching this cell on the radar, where do we think it's headed in terms of DFW area? Kind of looks like between Waxahachie / Lancaster / DeSoto at the moment.

Is this still capable of tornadoes? Good friends live in Lancaster I need to give them a heads up

From what I heard they said this line of storms has a history of rotation so I'd stay alert.

Do you know the time line? I'm in Carrollton for the night.
