Here's the next wave of crap to hit the region. The temps are above average for this time of year, causing potential "super cells".

Tornado Stuff In Kansas


According to the weather service, supercells are a special type of thunderstorm that can last for many hours. "They are responsible for nearly all of the significant tornadoes produced in the U.S. and for most of the hailstones larger than golf ball size," the weather service says. "Supercells are also known to produce extreme winds and flash flooding."


Seriously, this year is looking like a climate change bench mark. It's getting pretty hard to ignore. For some reason, I feel this is just the beginning of some drastic effects of our global change in climate.

Keep those in the tough spots in your _______ (prayers, spells, rituals, crossword puzzles, thoughts, etc).

You do realize that we are way, way below normal for tornado's right? Even severe weather as a whole.

No worries...I did see your post...but it said Kansas....I didn't put two and two together...so the battle line is stretching from OKC all the way into Kansas....the one F4 that I was tracking was on the ground for a good 15 min going quickly from an F2 to F4....more supercells are right behind it.

I think Norman dodged the bullet. Tornado on the ground going across lake Thunderbird...so other than some rural homes I don't see Norman getting hit from this one. At least I hope not.

Unless something changes ....baseball sized hail...If your East of Norman or anyone who at OBU needs to be aware that your looking at an F3+ possibly a F5....get to safety

I was coming home from Dallas and heard on WBAP in Ft. Worth about the tornado's in OKC. When I got close enough to pick up OKC stations I listened to Gary England most of the way in. When I got home I snapped this pic before turning into our driveway. This is the super cell spawning the tornadoes as seen from approximately 80 miles SW of the storm. The picture is looking NE.




Sorry for the bug splat in the middle lol

Gary England is one of, if not the best severe weatherman in the business. He has saved many, many lives. The guy should have a statue erected of him in this state. I'll bet he will at some point in the future.
