El Reno Question

Apr 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by Severe
Hi all,

We're any ST members chasing the May 31, 2013 El Reno tornado
in a white truck?

I saw a white truck parked along SW 15th just west of Rt. 81 when
the tornadoes core was about to cross Rt. 81 the core was about 150
yards due west of me.

The video is posted below (sorry it's so shaky, the inflow jet was a
little strong).

Thanks,

John

A surging LLJ across the Central and Southern Plains will allows dewpoints to reach in the mid 60s across the region. GFS depicts on Saturday that the... [Read More]

Have not spent a lot of time on the forecast for Sunday mainly because Saturday is still to be determined and a lot of what happens on Saturday will effect Sunday. I guess the main issue ATM is where the DL is positioned. Some of the North-Central, KS hodographs are crazy.

Sunday's Shear Profile

Apr 23, 2014 - 10:22 AM - by Jared Orr
I've been chasing for a while, so I should know this...But what is the behavior of a supercell near a warm front when there is strong south wind aloft and SE or ESE surface winds? I would imagine that the supercell would move NNE until it delves into cooler air...then it would become weakened...cells would probably congeal with the southern cells being the most potent....but what about tornadic potential?

This extreme closed upper low/negative tilt setup on Sunday has me wondering... [Read More]
