Just an FYI; there's an isolated threat of severe weather in the areas mentioned in the title. Just about every professional storm chaser in the USA
is there currently and streaming live video. There's a decent chance of witnessing a photogenic tornado at some point.
I believe it. It has been terribly windy here all day long, blowing west northwest. Head's up from central to north Texas and into central and
eastern Oklahoma...From there, it may go on into Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri.
a place i use a lot is tornadoalleylive.com ive used them a lot to see what is coming
towards the air capitol, so i know if i need to get out of here or park my car under something to get away from the hail.
im going to check out the two links you posted to see what they are like
It's pretty junky looking outside the Bunker here in OKC. My Mesonet radar is showing some good, 40k' storms with rotation down around the Altus,
OK area. The OKC area looks clear right now, but that could change as the afternoon heating has it's effect. Will let you know.
There are three cells North East of Altus, with rotation, tops +50k, but NO TVS (Tornado Vortex Signature), and tracking to the N-NE. There are two
S-SW of Altus, one with rotation, NO TVS, track NE. Looks like Altus will get wet, wind, and maybe so hail from the outflows. So far that's all I
These storms may produce tornadoes but they say Texas/Arkansas are supposed to have record-breaking flooding tomorrow through the rest of the week.
Every weather report I've heard says it's going to be less severe weather, and more flooding than anything.
Not sure about severe weather today, but there may be a bit tomorrow as well. I'm thinking more flooding than tornadoes is likely from everything
I've read, but who knows.
uggg... it's 3:35 in the morning and the wind is freaking me out! the radar says the sky is clear but i keep hearing it rumble and then the
wind gusts super hard. it's getting stronger and now i can't sleep.
Ugghh, I live right smack in the middle of Central Texas, between Waco and Austin. I really hope it doesn't get as nasty as some have said. I have
to be out in it today driving back and forth between classes. Will keep everyone updated with what's going on in our area after I get back this
afternoon. Already saw lightening this morning when I took the kids to the bus stop, some sprinkles, windy, and warm already.
waco and south of waco is definitely going to get it. i'm thinking it might possibly just graze austin with the bottom tip. it'll be easier
to tell in an hour or so. it's not looking good. maybe it will die out a bit? that's all we can hope for but it could gain some strength
before it gets to us (i'm in austin).
Thanks for the info Pasiiphae. It's starting to rain here and it's thundering now. Just took my daughter to her busstop and lightening hit right
in front of my car. We were like "WHOA!" Thankfully we weren't driving, just sitting there waiting. I live about 15-20 miles west of main Fort
Hood/Killeen in Lampasas Co. But I will be in Killeen at least half the day on main campus. If the weather gets too bad here I may either skip
classes this morning (only have 2 morning classes today) or just sit tight on campus until the weather slacks off a bit. I HATE driving in heavy rain
and wind. You stay safe there in Austin. Keep us updated on your area. Will be praying for you guys as well.
