5:28pm Severe Weather Update – North Central Texas

Screen Shot 2016-04-29 at 5.25.24 PM

Multiple areas of storms have erupted across north central Texas over the past several hours.  So far, conditions in the immediate Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area have remained under control with no significant reports of very large hail or other damage….yet.  We still have a few more hours to go yet.  East of the DFW metro area, the main concern at this time is a tornado warned cell between Murchison and Edom moving east at 20mph.  I’ve not seen any confirmation of an actual tornado touch down, but whatever is, or was, there is likely rain-wrapped and will be impossible to see.  Seek shelter now if you are in the path of this storm…don’t wait for visual confirmation because you probably won’t be able to see it at all.

A large portion of Denton and Collin County remain under Severe Thunderstorm Warnings.  Hail up to 1.5 inches is likely with these storms as the continue off to the northeast.  The previous tornado warning for Grayson county has expired.

Southwest of the DFW Metro, additional Severe warned storms are moving northeast and may pose a threat to areas south and southwest of Ft. Worth within the next hour.  Circulation has been noted with the storm currently over Comanche, but no confirmation of tornado touch down as of yet.  Treat this storm like it has one anyway and get into shelter if you’re in its path.  Hail up to 1.75 inches is also likely as this storm continues moving northeast at around 25.

6:05 pm Monday – Severe Weather Update – South TX

We’re monitoring a concentrated cluster of strong to severe storms just south of San Antonio.  The northern cell and the most southern cells are currently under Severe Thunderstorm Warnings with the threat of large hail and possibly an isolated tornado spin-up.  This batch of storms is moving generally east, but the cell at the northern end is moving almost due north and has the greatest potential for producing a tornado as indicated by some rotation noted on radar…though nothing has been confirmed at this time. Folks in the region need to keep a weather eye out this evening, have a way to receive Warnings if any are issued for your particular location and seek shelter immediately if any are issued.

Storms Possible Nearly Every Day Next Week; Not Unusual for Late April!

The next couple days will be fairly pleasant with little to no weather hazards. There is the possibility of a few showers and storms on Sunday in the Rio Grande Valley, South Texas, and the Coastal Plains. At this time the severe weather threat isn’t expected to become significant. A few severe storms will probably develop in southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma during the late afternoon Sunday. Those storms will not impact Texas. There is a low chance an isolated storm may try to fire up on the Red River but that potential is low due to a strong cap. Monday will feature an unstable airmass across Northwest Texas and North Texas which would promote severe thunderstorms. However, a strong cap will likely prevent thunderstorm development on Monday. If by a small chance a storm was able to break the cap it would likely be severe.

Tuesday is the day we’ll have to keep an eye on for severe weather potential. A strong upper level disturbance will interact with a very unstable airmass and strong wind shear values. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted a severe weather potential on Tuesday across the Big Country, Hill Country, Central Texas, Texoma, and North Texas. The highest threat for significant severe weather appears to be in southern Kansas, central and eastern Oklahoma, extending south to Texoma. We’re still a couple days out so changes will likely occur to the forecast. Tornadoes, very large hail, and damaging wind gusts may occur with the strongest storms. I will say the highest tornado threat does appear to be north of the Red River based off current data. That data could change so we will be watching Tuesday closely. Another factor is the cap which may limit overall thunderstorm development. There are plenty of uncertainties which will be ironed out as we get closer to Tuesday. The upper level storm system isn’t even on the west shore of the United States yet.

The threat of severe thunderstorms will shift south on Wednesday to include North Texas, Northeast Texas, the Hill Country, and Central Texas. The primary storm system responsible for Tuesday’s severe weather threat will be well northeast of Texas. Low-level wind fields will be much weaker which will likely limit a tornado threat. The atmosphere will be quite unstable and a cool front could help spark off storms by the afternoon hours Wednesday. At this time the potential for large hail and damaging wind gusts seems to be the primary concern. We’ll also be on the watch for any localized flooding potential.

Thursday and Friday could feature another round of severe storms as another powerful upper level storm system rolls in. We’ll address this issue once we get through Tuesday’s threat. The upper air pattern should calm down around May 1 with a few days of calmer weather. Until then expect an active week of weather starting on Sunday.
