    June 13-30 Severe weather

    I had a tree uprooted in my west Fort Worth neighborhood.

    Area of rotation is to my north (I'm in west Fort Worth).

    Is that cell southwest of Mineral Wells trying to develop some rotation by chance? There might be a couplet near the Palo Pinto Creek Reservoir, though the storm is non-severe at the moment. EDIT: at least it looked like one for a couple of frames on the radar loop. EDIT 2: Storm may now be developing a hook near Weatherford. Still non-severe.

    KCTV5 livestream might have shown something trying to tighten up around Parkville.

    New tornado emergency including the Bonner Springs and western KC areas.

    The 06z run of the NAM3k is presenting a somewhat-concerning scenario for the DFW area, starting with some fairly discrete storms tomorrow afternoon (they do seem to congeal into a line east of DFW with time). SPC mentions that some tornadoes are possible, provided that the thermodynamics are in place: I'm hoping this will be my last severe weather event for quite some time; climatologically north-central Texas is at the end of the severe storm season, and it is about time for the summer pattern to take hold. Especially after what happened in Dayton (not saying that will happen in DFW this time around), I'm hoping I will not need to deal with severe storms for a while.

    Was about to mention that storm in SW OK as well. Definitely starting to show that "look" to it. Fairly good ingredients in place too. Wonder if SPC will issue an mesoscale discussion for that area given the storm development happening there.

    MAY 20, 2019 High Risk

    That could be concerning if this storm can hold together and head towards the major population centers in NW AR like Bentonville or just north of there.

    Definitely noticed the flurry of tornado warnings going up NW of Abilene (including for Hamlin) recently. I am keeping my eye on that area for sure.

    MAY 20, 2019 High Risk

    Was about to mention that... NWS was putting out significant weather advisories for the areas of thunderstorm initiation. Also mentioning other areas of initiation near Fitzhugh and near Gene Autry, off to the east.

    I know it's just one model, but the 0z HRRR is trying to send up storms as far south as the DFW area. I have an afternoon-shift job, and I'm starting to get concerned about the potential for severe weather here in Fort Worth. Given what I've read it seems most likely to stay in NW TX and OK (and perhaps AR given Quincy Vagell's post), and from what I can tell the other models seem to agree with that perspective. Wondering if anyone with more expertise might be able to tell if the HRRR might be trying to catch on to something, or if it is overdone for areas this far south.

    Severe thunderstorm warning cancelled for the DFW area as that storm has weakened below severe limits.

    Severe thunderstorm warning now up for eastern Parker and western Tarrant counties in Texas: And it's a slow mover indeed. Minimally severe at the present moment though.

    It looks like a storm is trying to go up south of Mineral Wells, TX, west of DFW, within a recovered airmass behind the MCS. Not severe at the moment, but there seem to be some good parameters in place there per SPC Mesoanalysis (supercell composite, EHI, CAPE, shear), and it's not even within the general thunderstorm outline area. It would probably encounter some issues as it reaches the more stable air over DFW though. I'm getting sunshine in west Fort Worth now so there's definitely instability building ahead of this new cell. EDIT: SPC has issued an MD regarding the possibility for large hail in the DFW area: EDIT 2: The cell seems to be struggling to strengthen, so I'm not sure if it will amount to anything.

    And while we're at it, there is a tornado warning ongoing in San Angelo, TX right now. Surprised no one has mentioned this given the potential impacts to a major population center should a tornado touch down. EDIT: and now there's a tornado warning for Abilene, TX as well with the storm moving into that area, so now another major population center is under a tornado warning.
