Heat and humidity is one of the biggest ingredients for tornadoes.

I hear that, and I'm about to go out into it. Well the heat should make for a very nice show once it all comes together.

Be safe

We are also now under a tornado watch until 7pm in North Central Texas. I live near Fort Hood in Lampasas Co. This watch includes counties, "BELL BOSQUE COLLIN COMANCHE COOKE CORYELL DALLAS DENTON EASTLAND ELLIS ERATH FALLS FANNIN FREESTONE GRAYSON HAMILTON HILL HOOD HUNT JACK JOHNSON KAUFMAN LAMPASAS LIMESTONE MCLENNAN MILLS MONTAGUE NAVARRO PALO PINTO PARKER ROCKWALL SOMERVELL STEPHENS TARRANT WISE YOUNG"

I would link the page, but because I am still trying to figure out Windows 8 and my popup blockers on my new laptop, I am having trouble and it's not allowing me to click "link" so I can share the page. So I will just give everyone the website.

Texas Storm Chasers
12:40 PM: So far, all is pretty quiet. An outflow boundary extends from Saint Jo south to Mineral Wells. Storms to the west of this boundary are elevated above cool air and weak. We're watching for signs of storm development ahead of this eastward moving boundary. Short-term models suggest this may occur in the next hour across the western portions of the D/FW Metro. Storms that form east of this boundary will likely become severe. All is quiet for now, but we'll likely get more active by 2 PM.

I will be watching these guys all day..Updates all the time.

NWS Austin / San Antonio




... Extremely unstable airmass poised to erupt in severe thunderstorms
with large hail and damaging winds by late afternoon through this
evening...

Rich low level Gulf moisture coupled with daytime heating and
cold air aloft will result in an extremely unstable air mass
across south central Texas from late this morning through early
evening. Thunderstorm development is expected beginning by early
this afternoon as an an upper level trough and cold front approach
from the west. Scattered thunderstorms will develop rapidly by
late afternoon... quickly becoming severe as the front encounters
this unstable air mass. The main threats will be from large hail
and damaging thunderstorm winds... however with the extreme
instability present... isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Much
of the eastern half of south central Texas... mainly east of a
Kerrville to Carrizo Springs line... will be affected from late
afternoon until the early morning hours Wednesday. In
addition... rainfall amounts may average 1 to 3 inches within the
heaviest storms producing some localized flooding.

Heightened concern exists along and north of a Burnet to Austin to
Giddings line this evening... where the most unstable conditions will
reside. This area will be most at risk for very large hail and
isolated tornadoes.

I guess we will see what happens as the system moves across Texas, eastward.

Stay safe everyone.

Denton county here. I woke up around an hour ago (1:30ish), and slept through most of the current storm. So far there's just been high wind and rain. A wind gust in my county was measured at around 73 mph. The end of this line of storms is pretty much over for my area, probably within the next 15-20 minutes. This storm is still plowing east at around 45 mph, so those east of here (Plano, Greenville, ect....) are going to be hit pretty fast, as the current line dosent look like it's going to fall apart anytime soon.

As for tornadoes....the temperature around here is falling pretty rapidly. Im not exactly sure of the temp yesterday, but I think it was around atleast 80-85. Now it's 65 and still falling. I don't really see a chance for a tornado if it keeps getting colder. Again, I would watch out for the area East of here, plus there may be even more storms coming later today.

Here's the latest everyone... A squall line has formed around Dallas/Fort Worth and is moving this direction. It is expected to intensify as it moves into warmer, more moist air over East Texas. The main threats will be high winds and large hail. This line won't be here until closer to the drive home time (5pm-ish). However, if any storms develop ahead of this line, they will intensify very quickly and could start to rotate. This is the activity that we are watching closely right now.

YEs I love rain! Will it hit San marcos?

Howdie neighbor! Yes we can take all the rain we can get for the river, nothing too severe though. I'm just south of you in Fentress, on the river, it needs a good washing out, but not too much, I don't want to wash away.
love, heather
