  1. Strangely enough, almost unwittingly drove past a small grass fire this afternoon (east Plano). First time I've seen one personally. The grass was definitely very dry, but no clue how it started- the median in the middle of the road was just covered in flames. Definitely hadn't been going on for long, but it looked like it was fixing to jump across the road, but again I have no real experience with fires (this road was between a church and a high school right as students were leaving, so it was busy). As soon as I grabbed my phone to dial 911, a firetruck rounded the bend into my FOV and took care of it. I guess that's just a little experience I wanted to share to which the severe drought here is relevant.
  2. Are you serious? I thought that was for all of Western KY...
  3. Looks like a tornado near Clinton, OK (currently) as well as near Sharon Springs, KS (earlier)
  4. Pretty pronounced debris signature on that now too.
  5. NW of Boise City, OK Braydon Morisseau on Twitter: "Expanded and sounds like a large tornado NW of Boise City, Oklahoma #okwx 9:28PM @PrairieChasers @RadarOmega_WX https://t.co/IZH9S1YKrs" / Twitter EDIT: Seems like some chasers are convinced it was a scud bomb (either this image or other reported tornadoes in the area). Guess we'll find out later.
  6. PDS warning(s) now for that storm for all of about 9 people in total + chasers
  7. WxTwitter can get incredibly chaotic but it's also very helpful for finding streams (especially when people actually credit the images that they post lol)
  8. Another very rapidly rotating wall cloud on that stream simultaneous to the other tornado (which may have been weakening, but can't see because he's not pointing at it).
  9. Livestream of tornado near Herndon coloradoweathernut - Twitch
  10. Pretty much all other CAMs show convective initiation though... We've seen multiple times where the HRRR backs off on initiating during the late morning on the day of only to just be wrong and in disagreement with the other models. Of course, storms aren't guaranteed either, but I'm just saying that this kind of situation is not too unusual for the HRRR.
  11. Also a tornado-warned storm approaching the Lubbock metro from the west.
  12. Hail-driven MOD risk including Lubbock and Abilene
  13. I went out to take a look, everything was rain-wrapped obviously and couldn't see anything lol, but was worth a shot Not sure if we ever had a touchdown, but the path of the rotation would have taken it right over my old neighborhood (which also got on 10/20/19)
  14. Mesoscale Discussion 0625 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0617 PM CDT Sat May 15 2021 Areas affected...southeast Colorado through southwest Kansas Concerning...Tornado Watch 175... Valid 152317Z - 160015Z The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 175 continues. SUMMARY...A relatively small window will exist through mid evening for brief isolated tornadoes from a portion of southeast Colorado through southwest Kansas. DISCUSSION...Early this evening a stationary boundary extends through southwest Kansas into southeast Colorado. Dewpoints are generally in the upper 50s to around 60 F in vicinity of this boundary contributing to somewhat lower LCLs and up to 2000 J/kg MLCAPE. Storms will continue spreading eastward off the higher terrain, and other storms may initiate on the boundary. Effective bulk shear around 35 kt will promote both multicell and marginal supercell structures, and some increase in 0-2 km hodograph size will occur as the low-level jet strengthens this evening. The primary threat for a few brief tornadoes is expected to occur as storms develop along or move east and interact with the boundary where low-level vorticity will be maximized. ..Dial.. 05/15/2021
  15. Law enforcement confirmed tornado near Weldon in east/southeast TX
  16. Kansas looks like it's pulling something out of its sleeve again with a TOR warning for areas in and around Salina and another northeast of there (hodos from KICT and KTWX show very sizable amounts of 0-1 km SRH in excess of 500 m2/s2)
  17. FWIW, looks like there's a low-end tornado watch up downstream of the current SVR watch in parts of N/NE KS
  18. Environment directly ahead of the Ellis/Kaufman cell and the line behind it isn't too bad. SRH is nothing crazy obviously and LCLs are a little high, but there's still >3500 j/kg CAPE
  19. Tornado warning on that trailing storm as well. The last thing we need is another tornado to drop on the interstate with traffic backed up and EMTs on the scene
