  1. What I find hard to understand is how these same areas can get slammed repeatedly by svr storms within a short time span. Up here in the Midwest we would be discussing if there was enough recovery time. My hunch is this is now kinematically driven.
  2. Surface low now deepening in sw TX. Now down to 996 mb from 1001 mb earlier.
  3. Triangle between Abilene, Wichita Falls, and Mineral Wells might be the potential area to watch for tors in the next hour or so. New cells forming se of Abilene.
  4. We'll know the identities soon enough. Let families be notified. Accidents are unfortunately some of the highest risks when chasing from what I have seen written.
  5. Cells starting to fire sw of Lawton OK ahead of main supercells as was anticipated earlier today.
  6. Warm front up to at least Chickasha OK with obs. at 68/61 and se wind at 13
  7. Abilene is 75/62 with se wind at 25 with gusts to 32
  8. Left split....often indicative of large hail to come in the left split cell.
  9. Very strong helicity values presently in the panhandles of OK and TX per SPC meso page edging southward with successive runs.
  10. Hail up to 3 1/2" with tops to 55,000 feet expected in upcoming new svr watch in TX. This is still March, right?
  11. Storm firing south of Midland at present on dryline with 82/42 readings. Dryline bulge becoming apparent on Midland radar.
  12. Great lapse rates and relatively low LCL's over the targeted moderate risk area for Tuesday. Will have to see if other parameters come together and the WF lifts north.
  13. My main concern as is usual this time of year is adequate moisture return. Yes, it is nice to see a parade of systems, hopefully farther nw than currently modeled, for svr prospects, but I also would like to see a little more spacing between the waves so that deeper moisture can progress farther north. Nevertheless this will be interesting to watch.
  14. And helicity values finally starting to increase in the environment of those cells nw of Ft. Worth.
  15. Exactly. In fact SPC in current meso discussion is thinking more of a squall line in southern OK and increasing tor potential from DFW north to the Red River.
