May 7th-10th Severe Outbreaks

Recommended Posts

Interesting that's their warning given their last tweet was "possible" tornado.. after the warning.

Another monster velocity couplet with this one

 

HP nature of storms may hamper tornado potential (or at least longer lived tornado potential) for the time being.

That storm is gusting out now

I'd stick with the southern cell. Approaching the triangle now. Not to mention the other is a rain blob.

Anyone who sees this tornado SW of Vernon is taking an enormous risk to their own lives.

 

May seem like a very stupid question...but why exactly? Why is this any different to another storm of it's magnitude?

 

Sorry - again, to reiterate, just doing my best to learn so this kind of thing helps me!

The thing is totally rainwrapped and not visible.

Yeah. We were on it... Incredibly HP. Can't even see a hint of structure from a distance. Very frustrating and stressful on these roads (or lack thereof). Peaced out to Electra to take a breather.

Agreeing with Andy here... HP mode will lessen the long track tornado threat for now... 

 

Low-level flow is fairly modest so storms will tend towards the outflow-dominant portion of the supercell spectrum for now.

We chased an HP near the Red River in 2013.. one of the few times I was legit nervous.

Thanks for the replies....question on some terminology? HP tornado? I presume this is one that doesn't drop down for a long period of time and is unpredictable in nature? Rain wrapped or surrounded by Heavy Precip?

It's a term for the type of supercell.  High Precipitation.  Tornadoes in these storms can be just as strong and long tracked but are very dangerous because they are difficult or impossible to see.

HP= High Precipitation. These storms, and the tornadoes with them, can indeed be very unpredictable. Most often you will not be able to see a tornado associated with these storms until it's too late.

high precipitation. basically, yes rain-wrapped. and the rain is heavy enough to obscure the exact tornado like a curtain. from a chasing standpoint, one to stay a distance from as not being able to see the exact structure other than the rain curtain makes it more a danger than if it was real big but clear as day.
