In lawton ok, wind is a mix of cool and warm with some gusts strong enough to blow the trees gentley. Lots of cloud cover, so I guess we'll see what happens with that.

It feels electric. I remember this from the late 90s. Going to go fishing and eat some beans.

Weather Underground


The strongest storms are expected in two zones:

one near a warm front that will be moving slowly north across northeast Kansas and northern Missouri toward southern Nebraska,

and the other along and ahead of a dry line that should be located roughly 50-100 miles west of the Dallas-Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, and Wichita areas by late afternoon.

--The vertical wind structure of the atmosphere is not ideal for a widespread tornado outbreak. Although winds do strengthen with height, and upper-level winds are somewhat stronger than expected, the upper-level storm moving into the Plains has dug far enough south that winds will have a strong southerly component at all levels.

This reduces the amount of directional shear (variation of wind direction with height) that can help enhance storm rotation.

In addition, storms that are moving parallel to the dry line will tend to coalesce more quickly over time, rather than being more scattered or isolated supercell storms. Still, there will be local variations in the wind profile, so tornadic supercells are a distinct possibility, including the potential for strong tornadoes.

Wichita has shifted the long-track threat south more back down into your neck of the woods. Any long -track tornado threat for Kansas now exists if discrete super cells come up in the later evening hours from Oklahoma.

Current severe threats in Kansas are more short-term and straight line, but still very real and high.

Intellicast is showing two tornadic cells just south of St. Louis, FYI...

I don't know how accurate their interactive radar us but just thought I'd mention it!

Good information here guys. Thanks for the continued posting. I just received an email from the boss telling us to head out early to help minimize any impacts to the drive home. I have a Hurst-to-Mansfield route that usually takes us right along any fronts that are moving through. Fun times

Individual severe storms starting to fire up along the boundary created/pushed by the earlier round of severe weather that came through Kansas City. They're wide enough apart they could be separate cells for a while.

One of those north central KS storms is now warned.

This would be north of Emporia (I-35 runs through Emporia) right on highway 56.

Radar indicated tornado in Shawnee County.

That's the east side of Topeka, KS, as the I-35 turnpike comes up along the city from the south.

Also looks like the storms are really starting to get busy in Oklahoma and Texas now.
