Not a good day to go driving through western Oklahoma.

Unless you're a storm chaser

Thank you. I don't watch TV or listen to the radio so this is my first notice of this weather. I know that some people get peeved when the weather is half a world away from where they live, but in my case, thanks, I'll batten down the hatches!

MANY tornadoes are being reported as we speak; some significant... this is going to be an interesting evening into tonight.

A lot of folks in OKC don't have the greatest tornado plans either. The ground out there isn't quite right for basements so there are a lot of folks who wait to hear which way it's coming from and drive away. Others will ride it out in a central tiny room or bathtub. With some of the meaner storms, neither plan is a great one.

I don't know, but I think I'd keep my eye on that line out between Great Bend and Ness City.

*EDIT*

I was right. They just warned that spot I was looking at.

Posting a couple live storm chasing links...
LIVE Storm Chasing Link: SevereStudios
LIVE Storm Chasing Link: StormViewLive

TVN was shutdown at the end of 2015, however, these other sites consist of the same chasers and some new ones...
they also provide good content and interactive chat...

There are other live chase sites available as well if you wish to follow along.


Yes TVN is what I meant. I heard Brett Adair was working on a new site- but I couldn't find it. Thanks for the links!

It looks like there are two areas on that line that are rotating, but only one is warned right now.

*EDIT*

They have that second area warned now two.

If you are in the Great Bend area, you should be in your basement.

^SRV is showing so many areas of circulation and tornado warnings that it's becoming harder to keep track...

Also a friendly reminder to those new to Velocity radar imagery_ is to switch radars occasionally... as cells approach closer to a radar station - rotation becomes harder to detect, so bouncing around to different stations within an area allows for you to get a better read on any particular cell...

Thanks everyone for contributing so far.

Some big ones out west of Topeka, but they don't look as excited about rotating right now.

Oh my ... I'm looking at Wichita's regional radar ... and there's just so much rotation around.

This is so scary! I have never in my life seen a tornado and never want to! I hope everyone remains safe!

Luckily so far today, most of this has been in sparsely populated areas. I know that the few times I've clicked past Weather Channel, they've only mentioned having seen tornados, not necessarily anything about damage.

Tornados can spin through pastures and field pretty much all they want as far as I'm concerned.

It's the season!! Thunderstorms in our area, but no warnings yet for tornadoes. Still, a hail report from a nearby town is enough to bring the car into the garage, and move the flowerpots to under cover! Weird, though....stormy, but very still.

That one out west of Topeka looks like it might be trying to rotate a bit. Maybe keep an eye on it.
