Severe weather outlooks are based […]

The next twenty-four hours will bring the best chance of rain the Texas Panhandle and West Texas since last September. I’m hopeful a vast majority will receive measurable rainfall through Saturday morning. This isn’t a drought buster by any stretch of the imagination. I’m hopeful there will be just enough rain to kick-start the spring […]

Six years ago this afternoon I was chasing tornadoes in the D/FW Metroplex. Specifically – the Kennedale tornado near Highway 287 and Interstate 20. At nearly the same time another supercell and tornado were impacting Lancaster. Additional tornadoes would impact places like Forney later that afternoon.

Besides a rather potent northerly wind shift, we’ll see the chance of thunderstorms across portions of Texas. This front will not bring an abnormally cold airmass. However, […]

Those in Marshall should get […]

Fall is our secondary severe weather season in Texas as the jet stream dips farther south and we start to encounter airmass changes. That’ll pretty much sum up how tomorrow is going to place out in places like Kansas, the Oklahoma Panhandle, southward into the Texas Panhandle and northern sections of the South Plains and […]
