Don't hold your breath for 2006 SPC Watch #15

DISCUSSION...SATELLITE LOOPS SHOW EMBEDDED JET STREAK ASSOCIATED
WITH SRN PLNS UPPER TROUGH NOW ENTERING NE TX. THIS SHOULD SUPPORT
INTENSIFICATION AND POSSIBLY SWD EXTENSION OF EXISTING
STORMS/SUPERCELLS BOTH ALONG COLD FRONT AND PREFRONTAL CONVECTIVE
LINE NOW CROSSING AR/LA. WHILE DEEP DIRECTIONAL SHEAR AND
INSTABILITY INCREASE WITH SWD EXTENT ACROSS MS/LA TO THE GULF
CST...STRONGEST FORCING FOR ASCENT MAY TRACK A BIT FARTHER N NEAR
THE I-20 CORRIDOR.

SPECIAL NOTE...WATCH NUMBER 15 WAS ACCIDENTLY SKIPPED.


This just in from SPC on tornado watch #16...severe wx watch#15 of 2006 was neither blue box or red box...I guess maybe a clear box (???)...hmmmm
 
You're up early. We just had a very rude awakening in Greenwood, IN. Four solid minutes of pea, dime and nickel sized hail came pouring down without notice and woke us all up at 4:40.
 
Rude awakening? I would say that would be a great wake up call.

One topic has the SPC ever missed a number before? Would this one be a computer glitch or what?

Watch #15 was for the invisible supercells and tornadoes that occured over OKC and DTX. Therefore it was an invisible watch box
 
Yeah a few watches and mesoscale discussion numbers get skipped every year. I've never seen them specifically mention it in the next one, though.

Yeah, that was pretty funny. One of those things, the watch number was
just accidently skipped over by Corfidi at issuance. It's happened
before, but seems like it's been a while. Hopefully no more of that
this year!
