Couple discrete supercells in far southern KS that are looking interesting w/ rotation, not sure if they are surface based. ICT VWP is also highly conducive to tornadoes.

Looking like DFW might get a very lucky break tonight, assuming that Denton county storm keep moving more north than east

The Temperature/Dewpoint spreads are starting to get smaller, and still have supercells out and about.

Oh yeah not out of the woods yet. Things could change in a hurry

Was camped out in Bridgeport, TX earlier... headed S on 114 to Paradise... storm looked decent on radar and was pretty.  I think folks are right about the high LCLs factoring in however.

Headed back down 114 to the intersection with I35W at TX motor speedway... shortly thereafter this was bearing down and a TOR was dropped on it right around the time of the pic... caught my attention for sure.  Passed just NW and I did not observe a funnel.

So many pictures of baseball to softball sized hail on twitter it is unreal. Every storm is producing big time hail it seems right now.

Frisco and Plano were absolutely destroyed on April 11th of last year with hail golf ball to softball sized, and here it comes again. McKinney got lucky then, now it doesn't look like they'll escape. Many homes there still have not been repaired from last year's event.

Holy crap, this is by far the most people ive ever seen trying to crowd under an overpass. This is just stupid... 

 

If this storm had produced a tornado in this spot, this could of been very bad.

I'm assuming they are trying to avoid the hail, not a possible TOR. Still looks a bit unsafe and disorganized.

Tennis ball sized hail reported in Frisco. Extensive damage to homes and vehicles with many windows busted out. Potential window damages to high rises on the Dallas North Tollway from hail.

damn, the north end of the metroplex is getting clobbered, and the south end of the metroplex looks like it'll get hit down in Hillsboro and maybe even Corsicana. and one other cell worth watching out of all of this near US 281 and US 84, heading it looks like initially, parallel but just south of US 84 heading to and area between Waco and Temple. just wonder how much the southern cell will hold up as it nears i-35 south of the split.

I've came across a scene like that chasing here in Oklahoma. It was pouring rain and small hail. Luckily, I wasn't driving too fast, but could barely see them with all the rain. Myself and other chasers had to lay on horn for what seemed like a minute to get someone to move so we could get through.  People are stupid.
