  1. Not a single streaming chaser on Severe Studios with that. Crazy
  2. Norman Discussion interesting: .DISCUSSION... Determining exactly when and where storms occur today remains a challenge. Latest guidance overall has been suggesting an earlier start for storm initiation with first storms forming across southwestern Oklahoma and western north Texas around noon. Overall, based on latest model guidance (particularly the HRRR/RAP) and incoming data from a special 15 UTC KOUN sounding, confidence is growing that storms will form earlier and somewhere over southwestern Oklahoma or western north Texas around noon today. The 15 UTC KOUN sounding depicted that the base of the low level inversion has lifted about 40 mb (from around 900 mb to 860 mb) and low level moisture deepening below the inversion. Based on latest HRRR/RAP guidance, this lifting is expected to continue in the next few hours, which would allow for storms to form earlier than previously expected once surface temperatures reach the lower to mid 80s near or just east of the dryline across southwestern Oklahoma and western north Texas. A weak mid level disturbance may be causing the lift, though the exact cause for the lift remains uncertain. If these storms form around noon in southwestern Oklahoma and western north Texas, they may at first be slighlty elevated with giant hail as the main hazard. However, these storms would likely become surface-based due to daytime heating no later than 3 pm as they move northeast. This could increase the tornado potential across western north Texas, southwestern and central Oklahoma this afternoon and evening while slightly decrease the tornado potential in northwestern Oklahoma. Again, the exact details remain uncertain today. The bottom line is that the combination of shear, instability, and moisture support significant severe storms with giant hail and tornadoes this afternoon and evening somewhere over the western two thirds of Oklahoma and western north Texas
  3. Eldorado storm looking pretty healthy. Should go warned soon.
  4. I saw the funnel about 2/3 tp the ground about 2-3 miles from me. It apparently touched down briefly and dissolved quickly before reforming NE of there.

  10. Mesonet is back up.
  11. Tulsa NWS thinking the warm front will be Near I40. Norman NWS is thinking I 44. I'm leaning I40
  12. Ok, yea. That area sucks. Bad radar, bad terrain. We don't chase down there at all really.
  13. What mean by spotty radar coverage east of I35?
  14. TSA and OUN saying severe but also calling for lot of rain. Seems like early discrete cells quickly forming into a line looking at the GFS convective precip view. SPC focused on Thurs/Fri, local offices more on Friday.
  15. I had the problem in Chrome but it opened in IE. You can try that. Thanks for the alt URL!
