Random question as we all watch this unfold. 

 

What are the darker red streaks on a CAM? 

 

When I do an HRRR loop say for UH reflectivity > 25?  I’ve alwasy wondered what those signify?

 

thanks.

Those are updraft helocity tracks where hail cores or possible tornadoes could be.

Wall cloud near Cromwell,
This may be the first cell to produce. Velocity rotation looks to be tightening. And there's now a tornado warning on it.

Mike Morgan just called a hook a stinger tail or the scorpions tail. I’ve never heard that. Does he make up his own language?

Don't write off the Lawton cell just yet. Looks to be quickly restrengthening.

Edit: Never mind. Fizzling out again.

I'd say this is a big enough stand-alone event to use the other thread dedicated for today. If y'all could post there that would be good IMO.

a lot of the storms so far west of I-35,  including the Stillwater storm now, looks like they are being torn apart by too much shear...you can see this on the visible too as the anvils are ripped from the updrafts ...maybe the CAP is killing the updrafts 

they are "tilted".
