    Extremely...that is like the 2nd (at least tornado she has been in). Back when I was in 4th grade I was supposed to go with her to FL (or around 4th grade...might have been 5th but that was AGES ago) but I had hurt my knee and couldn't go. A TORNADO (weak one) WENT THROUGH THERE AREA. On 5/31/98 I had stayed over her house for that weekend b/c I knew the severe wx risk...well 5/31 was a Sunday and I had school the next day so I had to go home (back to WeHa) like 6 PM or so...anyways I missed the microburst AND SHE WAS IT HARD. FOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKK

    It's not the size of the boat, its the motion of the ocean

    Wtf
  7. hmmm maybe it was inflow then. CC's were like .76 with Z around 1-2
  8. Yeah that's a good point...it may actually been fanning out lofted debris...that second TDS in question seemed to jump around quite a bit each scan...and in an odd motion which could certainly indicate it was lofted debris. Is it ZDR that can help with determining inflow? If I remember correctly I think ZDR values were super low...like 1 or 2 dB. I forget though how to use these for inflow. Would have to go back over the notes
  9. I would think there were two different circulations. It was tough to tell but I thought there were two TDS signatures going on at times.
  10. I don't think some of the shear parameters were anything unprecedented...the ULJ though is quite strong for this time of year...but it was just a right combination of llvl instability and the strong low-level wind shear. Everything just came together.
  11. yup great combo of 0-3km CAPE/wind shear
  12. glad you're alright!

    I would agree based on the velocity. We already know there was a tornado but I think there certainly was significant straight line wind damage as well.

    and one of them resulted in an F2 I believe which is still (I think strongest on record)

    Important thing is they're alright. spoke with a friend of mine who lives in that area as well...he was at work but sounds like a direct hit to his neighborhood

    Good to hear he is safe. I hope James is safe too...looked to go real close to him.
