Yeah, our turn is around lunch time.  One of the counties has a severe t-storm warning where a winter storm warning already exists.  The TV dude said it takes quite a strong and deep storm to accomplish that.

That's pretty amazing. I was watching WFAA's online feed out of Dallas, and they were showing an insanely sharp temperature gradient along the front line. And winds blowing in opposite directions at/along it. No wonder there's rotation in the air mass.

No stalemate in the weather department.

Our NWS office did a Forecast Discussion 2 hours or so ago and offered moderate helicity (updraft corkscrew winds in cells) and compared similar helicity plus other weather geek values to past events where tornados happened in the Houston area, in order to convey a serious situation, today.  Glad the Texans are out of town, today, as the tailgate party would have been a bad idea.

Rain appears to have jumped I-35 in San Antonio, finally, and it's to take 6-7 hours to get here.  Still 75 in San Antonio, but NWS there estimates the cold air to arrive around 6 a.m.  Still 75 here (and it was back in July).

Love the red/green radar that shows tornado commas.

Just checked the temperature readings for Texas, and it's quite the sight. No wonder the weather is so violent.

Yeah, it's just about to pass through at my location.  Evidently, we're still under the gun for a tornado.
The front is almost a North-South oriented front.  For example, the front cleared Corpus Christi before it got to Houston.

That's quite a situation. Seems odd for this time of year. Hope it fizzles without causing damage.

It IS extremely odd.  We were having morning temps in the 70's, which is usually reserved for the summer.  El Nino caused it due to the west to east jet stream bottling up the cold air.  The waters in the Gulf of Mexico has not cooled as normal because there hasn't been the Arctic air coming south, so Galveston had a lot of sea fog this past week.  This was all typical Spring weather, except for the blizzards.

bounce confused confused confused confused

It did fizzle.  Below is the explanation of the fizzle:
"Exit of the cold front will end any remaining tornado threat which never really materialize over the region. Suspect shear values were just too much for the overall weak updrafts (lack of instability), but this is about the third time this fall where severe parameters looked good and actual severe verification has not occurred."

We stay below 60 degrees all week.  People down here will lose the heat acclimatization...it's about time.  Different weather models for the month of January are showing cold and wet.  Of course, those models are usually for the curious and 'what if...' people.

If you want a detailed explanation of the tornados in Rowlett, Texas, just follow the link.  It has the tornado warnings from the Fort Worth NWS office, plus some really cool pictures.  "Jeff" is the meteorologist for the Harris County Flood Control District.  Houston is in Harris County.

Re: December 2015 - Colder Weather To End December

by srainhoutx » Mon Dec 28, 2015 9:10 am
Morning detailed briefing from Jeff regarding the N Texas Tornado Outbreak:

combination of factors evolved during the early evening hours of December 26, 2015 over N TX to produce one of the most devastating winter time tornado outbreaks in modern times in TX. Several supercell thunderstorms produced at least 9 tornadoes across north TX with the most significant affecting the higher population areas of eastern Dallas County into northwest Rockwall County and southeast Collin County.

We've been extremely wet in December -- 26 days straight with at least 0.01 inch of rain falling, and I have no idea how long it's been since we haven't had a trace of rain -- but that's likely to change soon with cooler, drier air as the week progresses. We even got a (very) light dusting of snow yesterday.

We would get tired of 26 days straight, unless we're coming out of a drought.  For the year, we broke through 70 inches.  This is our 5th wettest year with #1 being 72 inches. 

By the way, there's a limit as to how many emoticons that can be used in a thread.

Yep. That many days of rain gets old. We had a "break" - a cloudy day with only a trace of rain late at night, but today was positively sodden. And about 38 degrees all day. Bleah.

Colder, dryer weather is supposed to be starting tomorrow. We'll see.

Two moves a time might speed things up, for sure.

That's quite a situation. Seems odd for this time of year. Hope it fizzles without causing damage.

It IS extremely odd.  We were having morning temps in the 70's, which is usually reserved for the summer.  El Nino caused it due to the west to east jet stream bottling up the cold air.  The waters in the Gulf of Mexico has not cooled as normal because there hasn't been the Arctic air coming south, so Galveston had a lot of sea fog this past week.  This was all typical Spring weather, except for the blizzards.

It did fizzle.  Below is the explanation of the fizzle:
"Exit of the cold front will end any remaining tornado threat which never really materialize over the region. Suspect shear values were just too much for the overall weak updrafts (lack of instability), but this is about the third time this fall where severe parameters looked good and actual severe verification has not occurred."

We stay below 60 degrees all week.  People down here will lose the heat acclimatization...it's about time.  Different weather models for the month of January are showing cold and wet.  Of course, those models are usually for the curious and 'what if...' people.

We've been extremely wet in December -- 26 days straight with at least 0.01 inch of rain falling, and I have no idea how long it's been since we haven't had a trace of rain -- but that's likely to change soon with cooler, drier air as the week progresses. We even got a (very) light dusting of snow yesterday.

We would get tired of 26 days straight, unless we're coming out of a drought.  For the year, we broke through 70 inches.  This is our 5th wettest year with #1 being 72 inches. 

By the way, there's a limit as to how many emoticons that can be used in a thread.

What to do.  What to do.  Next game, we might want to do 2 moves in one post, each.

Yep. That many days of rain gets old. We had a "break" - a cloudy day with only a trace of rain late at night, but today was positively sodden. And about 38 degrees all day. Bleah.

Colder, dryer weather is supposed to be starting tomorrow. We'll see.

Two moves a time might speed things up, for sure.

It's interesting to me the El Nino effect contributed or was causal to the North Pole being 33 degrees, yesterday, for the first time in 10 or 12 years.

This will all end when Nancy returns.

Lord, yes. When did she say she's coming back? Soon, I hope.

I saw that bizarre displacement at the North Pole. That's even crazier than usual.

I didn't see anything about when she was coming back.  Hopefully, nothing has happened in a bad sort of way, but as the days go by, that has to be a possibility.

I have recently noticed that there is about the same amount of action on the V-Team group on FB, as here.  So even FB can't counter the fact that while we are probably still running or some form of involvement, other parts of life have even encroached on the ease of connecting us together that FB offers.

I read there was a solar storm that was approaching to where even folks in your state can see it.  Did that occur as far south as you?  I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights.

I think that's a good point. People tend to move on. One of the benefits of Hal's group is that there'd be a fresh supply of newbies looking for advice and moral support to replace those who drifted off. There are some people recording their runs on Strava, but it's not as conducive to conversation as other venues.

I'd LOVE to see the Northern Lights, and we're excited about the possibility, but I haven't head much since the possibility was announced a couple of days ago. We have cold, clear nights right now, so if there was ever a chance to see them, this is it. Crossing fingers.

As far as Nancy goes, I'm choosing to believe that she's just off somewhere having a wonderful time and will eventually chase us out of here with a broom like the pair of house-wrecking raccoons we are.

I read where it would be rare for southeast Texas to have a EF4 tornado because we have so much humidity along with the Gulf, that we don't provide the dryness necessary to get enough lift for a big, bad tornado.

Yipes, copy-and-paste yields full web addresses, so this is going to be tricky. (Clever ploy, Ounce!)







Yes, I think that'll work.

We had unexpected snow yesterday - an inch or so - followed by hours of freezing rain. No school today. Going to make a tentative drive down to the tire place to swap on the snow tires for Alita's car. She has to head out at 0-dark-30 and get to school as soon as possible, even if bad conditions has prompted a late start. We didn't need them last year, but this year is shaping up differently.

No running in this gunk, either. Fresh snow can be fun, but ice? No thanks.

Truly have no clue about what you speak.  I did copy and paste the body of our 3 little buddies.







So, do you have another set of wheels for the snow tires or just take the tires to swap for the non-snow tires?  Are you noticing if Mt. Hood is filling in with white as if it was a page in a coloring book?

Mount Hood Meadows, a ski resort, has received 202 inches of snow so far this year. So yes, Mount Hood is gorgeous, when the clouds break and you can actually see it. Smile
