Severe Risk Tuesday (Feb 10th)


Severe Risk Tuesday Afternoon/Night
Monday, 9 February 2009
An early taste of spring severe may be a part of Tuesday’s weather scene. A fast jet stream (up to 150mph), fairly good moisture supply thanks to brisk southerly winds, and cold air over warm air suggest the potential for some strong to severe storms as Tuesday afternoon progresses.
An upper trough will be accompanying all of these other elements. Meanwhile, a surface dry line and cold front will act as a focal point for storm development. The dry line will probably outrun the cold front, which means areas further west in Texoma may get “dry slotted” and receive very little rainfall. Areas to the east of I-35 stand the greater prospects of rain…but also for some severe storms (see map).
It will all be over by sunrise Wednesday with pleasant weather expected for Lincoln’s Birthday (Thursday, Feb 12th).
Take Care,
Steve LaNore

    To Kathy in Sherman: My house was hit badly by the tornado that was a result of these storms. If Steve hadn't been reporting the entire time, my family might have lost their lives.

    Apparently, Kathy in Sherman is a non educated fool! Great work Steve and guys are top notch as always!!!

    Someone sitting in Sherman safe and sound worrying about a NCIS program while severe storms and tornado's hit your neighbors? Sad really - I think KXII did the right thing to stay live all evening giving up to the minute coverage. We might never know what lives were saved because of the storm coverage. Face it if you turn on local TV and see regular programming people might not realize how serious the situation is!

    who cares about any show that is coming on during this bad weather,as for me and my family, we like to know whats going on and when or if we need to take cover. Thank you channel 12 for staying on top of all the severe weather information. I would hate to think that channel 12 was telling everyone to take cover and couldnt see it because we were watching the good guys get the bad guys. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

    David, As we saw last March with the heavy snow, and in recent years with several late freezes, we’re bound to get more cold air before spring sets in. In fact, lows near freezing are in my extended forecast for this weekend. I also read of a long-range outlook of colder weather later in the month; I don’t expect any type of record arctic blast but a trend to cooler conditions does seem likely based on the long-range upper air pattern for later this month. Remember though…long-range predictions can and do go “bust”. I certainly would NOT plant tender plants just yet… Take Care, Steve

    Steve, A few days ago, I heard about a North American upper level pattern change towards the end of February, one that might bring some more shots at winter weather into our area. What are your thoughts? Is spring about ready to spring...or might we have any more shots left at snow/cold?
