Evolution of the Okmulgee supercell on reflectivity and velocity is beautiful. Classic cyclic tornadic supercell.

Definitely. It's the near perfect definition of a handoff.

I just heard an OKC met look at the cone tornado and then announced it was an EF-2 just by eyeballing it. I thought that was odd.

4 and 9 have turned into a clown show since 2013.

That was Elie, and it was pretty apparent it was a violent drillbit by the motion.

Yeah they had a good chaser view of the rotation on the ground and damage being done.

That said I believe the majority of tornadoes under 1/8th mile wide are EF1 or less and rarely will you see a wedge be an EF0 or EF1 but it does happen sometimes

The early life of the jarrell tornado is definitely an exception that thing was as violent as it gets and probably only 50 yards wide.

It's one of my all time awe inspiring videos to watch.

I like watching Damon Lane. Not sure which station but he stays calm and gives you just the facts without hyperbole.

KOCO 5 is Damon Lane. KOKH 25 isn't bad either but they don't have a helicopter. Both of the above mentioned channels are definitely the calmer of the four news channels in OKC.

Things have gotten messy by Tulsa. However, there are a few well-defined updrafts there. If storms can continue to merge and the low level jet kicks in soon, it’s not hard to imagine things really ramping up.

Supercell in Cherokee Co. KS is ramping up as well.

While I understand forecasting weather is probably not easy but this weather forming down around burkburnett and Wichita Falls wasn’t even in a risk area for two days. And now it’s got a monster cell. 

 

This goes to show is how weather can humble us

If it's still on the ground, it'll be a VERY close call for Welch.

Southern back end of the storm seems like it wants to turn right some
