May 7th-9th Severe Weather Episodes

Recommended Posts

Upgrading parts of the severe watch to a tornado watch now.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0572   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK   0529 PM CDT MON MAY 09 2016   AREAS AFFECTED...EASTERN KANSAS....CENTRAL OKLAHOMA...AND   EASTERN/NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 154...   VALID 092229Z - 092330Z   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 154   CONTINUES.   SUMMARY...CONTINUE WW 154.  STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE   ONGOING ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE WATCH AREA...WITH A CONTINUED   HAIL AND WIND THREAT.  SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE WATCH WERE CONVERTED   TO A TORNADO WATCH...AND ADDITIONAL AREAS MAY ALSO NEED TO BE   CONVERTED BASED ON LATEST CONVECTIVE TRENDS.   DISCUSSION...SCATTERED STRONG/SEVERE CONVECTION CONTINUES...ACROSS   THE CENTRAL AND WESTERN PARTS OF THE DISCUSSION AREA ATTM.  THESE   STORMS ARE IN AN ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERIZED BY MODERATE INSTABILITY   /AROUND 2000-2500 J/KG MUCAPE/ AND SUFFICIENT DEEP SHEAR FOR   ORGANIZATION/STORM ROTATION...ESPECIALLY IN SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE   WATCH.  LARGE HAIL IS THE BIGGEST CONCERN WITH THESE STORMS AT THIS   TIME...ALTHOUGH DAMAGING WIND WILL BECOME MORE OF A CONCERN AS   STORMS HAVE HAD A TENDENCY TO CONGEAL INTO BROKEN LINES ESPECIALLY   NEAR/SOUTH OF THE WICHITA METRO AREA AND ADJACENT NORTHERN OKLAHOMA.   LOW-LEVEL AND DEEP SHEAR ARE SOMEWHAT STRONGER ACROSS SOUTHERN   PORTIONS OF THE WATCH NEAR CENTRAL AND EAST CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.  STORM   MODE IN THIS REGION IS MORE CELLULAR AS WELL.  FOR THESE   REASONS...THE TORNADO THREAT WILL BE SOMEWHAT GREATER IN THIS REGION   AND PORTIONS OF THIS REGION WERE UPGRADED TO A TORNADO WATCH.    ADDITIONAL AREAS MAY NEED UPGRADING...AND TRENDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE   MONITORED.   ..COOK/CORFIDI.. 05/09/2016

Just stunning. 

 

Well if people don't want to go to CO, might as well bring CO to them.

Debris falling out of the sky in Ada.

Fatality reported from that Wedge... Didn't quite hear what county, just know it was related to that tornado.

If someone on that chopper caught that with a high-res camera, that will become one of the iconic supercell pictures.

Crazy to get such a photogenic LPSC like that in central OK; absolutely gorgeous. Cannot wait to see high quality pictures/videos of these.

Can't think of a much better time to introduce myself. 

Good evening gents. Some pretty amazing storms we're witnessing this evening. 

It would appear the bromide storm is beginning to choke out the storm currently tracking toward stonewall, but time will tell the story how these two will interact with one another. Both are still quite strong.

Going to have some storm interactions here pretty soon with the Stillwater supercell. Will be interesting to see how it handles it.

Anyone got anything heading to Tulsa?? I've scanned every radar I can but there is a lot of uncertainty.

Tulsa could certainly be impacted a bit later, yes.
