Severe Again?

April 1, 2008

Another severe storm scenario, quite similar to the March 31 episode, is brewing for April 3-4.  A warm front will pass north of Texoma by Thursday morning, with a surface cold front and upper trough approaching Thursday afternoon/evening.

This puts us in the unstable warm sector of the storm. There will also be fairly high wind shear (change of wind speed/direction with height) which increases the risk for tornadoes.

The surface cold front should pass through by Friday morning. A notable difference may be the location of the surface low: a bit further south than in Monday’s event. This would tend to increase low-level wind shear, enhancing storm updrafts and the tornado potential.

At this point the weekend ahead looks very pleasant with cool mornings and mild afternoons.

 Take Care,

    I guess you can let Bill know when the tornadoe hits his house, not before it hits. lol Bill I like to know if a storm is coming and what it is poss of producing. Thats why they make storm shelters for. to get in before the storm hits. Some poeple may have just turned on the TV.

    Appreciate your interrupting TV programs when there is severe weather in your viewing area. However, when there are no new updates there is no need to interrupe regular sked programs. Also, there is no need to repeat over and over and speculate about what the weather could do. Let the people know what is happening and what will happen but forget the what could happen. Thank you for your time and I will continue to watch your News and Weather.
