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]

I was thinking to combine a multi-day thread into one but I think this is fine. Let's get started.

This weekend I think is going to be the most interesting severe weather event so far this Spring season, particularly Sunday and perhaps Monday. A deep upper level low will be coming out of the West Coast by the end of this week. 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]

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

I'll get the discussion rolling on this day because I'm conflicted on what I'm seeing. First off, I know there's been run-to-run discrepancies with the GFS on different aspects. Mainly, the moisture. It appears this might end up being a case of "just in time" moisture, which usually means this could be a case of shallow moisture. The GFS has stuck to a pretty general location of the dryline; roughly from Midlannd-Pampa-Oakley-Kearney. During the day it appears only low 50s dews before... [Read More]

RadarScope vs GR LevelX - resolution etc

The last week I have been trying to get a good Weather Radar-software and since I use a Mac (and don't wan't to "Windows boot") I decided to go for RadarScope which I heard was supposed to be the best. After a lot of struggle to actually be able to buy it I was kind of disappointed it wasn't much better than most apps I have on my iPad. I was expecting much smoother radar lines like this (I believe it is GR Level):
