Hi Tech:

Missie in Addison here right off of Beltline & Tollway -here it comes...Wail Doggies it is about to get real! Thanks so much for the wonderful work you have done.

Feels like the storm we had in 2007 - blew our roof off that time.

I have had a headache all day - sure sign that it is coming.

Be safe!

I didn't realize the tornado was that big and only 20 minutes north of me. Cool photo, though!

My friend's dog (Tank) gets scared during storms so she asked me to spend the night while she goes out of town this weekend. Only bad part is that she just moved to a new house and it doesn't have any furniture yet! (She does have a bed and tv, however) She has Verizon cable and I don't know how to use it, LOL.

You'll have to keep me updated this weekend! (And, again, thank you for keeping us informed!)

Today is the 5-year anniversary of the Tornado Super Outbreak that spawned an incredible 350 tornadoes in 21 states and killed over 320 people.

Let's hope this weekend is nothing like that outbreak!

SPC



...SOUTHERN PLAINS TO ARKLATEX/LOWER MS RIVER VALLEY... A HIGHLY COMPLEX FORECAST SCENARIO IS EXPECTED PARTICULARLY ACROSS OK/NORTH TX THROUGH THE AFTERNOON/EVENING...WITH ADMITTEDLY BELOW-AVERAGE CONFIDENCE IN FORECAST/SPATIAL DETAILS. THIS IS LARGELY ATTRIBUTABLE TO UNCERTAINTIES REGARDING THE EXTENSIVENESS/PERSISTENCE OF EARLY-DAY CONVECTION AND APPRECIABLE SHORTER-TERM /24-36 HOUR/ DETERMINISTIC AND ENSEMBLE GUIDANCE VARIABILITY. SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS...SOME POTENTIALLY STRONG/SEVERE AND CAPABLE OF HAIL...ARE EXPECTED TO BE ONGOING THIS MORNING FROM THE TX/OK PANHANDLES INTO PARTS OF THE BODY OF OK AND THE ARKLATEX REGION. THESE STORMS WILL GENERALLY BE FOCUSED ALONG A NORTHWARD-SHIFTING WARM FRONT...WHICH SHOULD ROUGHLY BE SITUATED ACROSS WEST-CENTRAL/SOUTH-CENTRAL OK AND THE OK/TX RED RIVER VICINITY AND ARKLATEX THIS AFTERNOON...ALTHOUGH PERSISTENT EARLY-DAY CONVECTION/CLOUD COVER AND RELATED DIURNAL DIFFERENTIAL HEATING WILL BE FACTORS IN EXACTLY WHERE THE WARM FRONT IS EFFECTIVELY LOCATED LATER TODAY. MIDDLE 60S TO NEAR 70F SURFACE DEWPOINTS WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY ESTABLISHED THIS AFTERNOON NEAR/SOUTH OF THIS WARM FRONT...EAST OF AN EASTWARD-MOVING TX/SOUTHERN OK DRYLINE...AND EAST OF A PACIFIC COLD FRONT WHICH WILL ACCELERATE EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD TONIGHT ACROSS KS/OK AND WESTERN NORTH TX. DEVELOPMENT/INTENSIFICATION OF SURFACE-BASED STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING AS FAR WEST AS WEST/SOUTHWEST OK IN VICINITY OF A SURFACE TRIPLE POINT...AND AS FAR EAST AS AR/LOWER MS RIVER VALLEY WHERE MORNING STORMS COULD PERSIST/POSSIBLY GROW UPSCALE DURING THE DAY. CURRENT THINKING IS THAT SEVERE HAIL WILL BE THE MOST COMMON SEVERE THREAT OVERALL...POTENTIALLY FROM A MULTIPLE ROUND OF STORMS IN SOME SUB-REGIONAL AREAS INCLUDING PARTS OF OK AND THE ARKLATEX. TORNADO POTENTIAL...AT LEAST IN A CONDITIONAL SENSE...SHOULD BE MAXIMIZED IN A ROUGHLY WSW/ESE-ORIENTED NEAR-WARM-FRONT CORRIDOR ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HALF OF OK/FAR NORTH TX AND PARTS OF THE ARKLATEX. ALTHOUGH LOW-LEVEL SHEAR FORECASTS VARY CONSIDERABLY AMONG AVAILABLE RAP/GFS AND MORE-AGGRESSIVE NAM GUIDANCE...SOMEWHAT HIGHER TORNADO PROBABILITIES /10 PERCENT/ APPEAR WARRANTED NEAR THE WARM FRONT...BUT SUBSEQUENT SPATIAL ADJUSTMENTS CAN BE EXPECTED PENDING MESOSCALE DETAILS AND A RESOLUTION TO CURRENT FORECAST UNCERTAINTIES. FARTHER SOUTH...OF SOMEWHAT GREATER SPATIAL/TIMING FORECAST CERTAINTY WILL BE FOR STORMS TO DEVELOP/INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS MUCH OF NORTH/CENTRAL TX IN VICINITY OF THE NNE/SSW-ORIENTED DRYLINE. STRONG VERTICAL SHEAR /40+ KT/ AND MODERATE INSTABILITY WILL SUPPORT SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF LARGE HAIL AND POSSIBLY A COUPLE OF TORNADOES THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.

Oh, no...The severe weather risk has changed from 'enhanced' to 'moderate' for this evening.

Golf ball or bigger hail is main threat with tornadoes more likely than what we had Tuesday. The worst part is that it's going to hit when everyone gets off work and will be on the road!

a reply to: texasgirl

Do you have a link to a time line or who has upgraded to moderate? SPC still showing enhanced...

I am just curious because I left the dogs inside rather than in the dog run and I am trying to time when to head home from work as well.
