Default Wednesday weather

The local news, as well as Texas Storm Chasers, are talking crazy storms likely in central Texas Wednesday afternoon and night. Like softball hail kinda stuff. For reference, I am in Temple.

Was wondering what the resident weather folk are seeing.

Will be hitting the hay here in a few, but wanted to get the conversation started.

All dependent on where the triple point ultimately sets up. At the very least a large hail event. Goose egg size and up. Large tornado outbreak with long lived tornados is possible

Born and raised in Texas and I HATE this time of year. Iíll be working Wednesday night and trying to decide if Iím going to drive my little gas saver like normal or take the truck in. Itís usually not as bad at work which is why Iím tempted to drive it. Plus sometimes I can squeeze it inside if it gets bad.

No one really knows what these storms can and will do. They just get a good estimate using computer models. When those storms fire up they do whatever they want. Just watch the weather and be prepared for the worst hope for the best.

I agree,
The worst part of this coming front is that it will be in the very early morning hours. Most likely Midnight to 4 AM. I hope folks are prepared and are ready to take action in an instant if it comes to that.

If you're on twitter, follow reed timmer and look up some of the other weather geeks who were chasing last weekend. Their info, photos, maps, etc all get passed around twitter like wildfire when they see something interesting. It's the quickest way to find real-time info.

You're going right to the heart of it according to channel 8, Pete Delkus. I hope it misses us, but if weatherman is half right, we're getting hit.


Good luck

If you are at the Best Western go up to the 2nd floor and breathe the curry. It will make you pass out and you won't have to worry about the weather

I keep hearing about low tornado potential and not anywhere near the potential as last week. I'm not buying it. These storms that pop ahead of the squall line are going to be super cellular and will be rotating.

I'm still working on getting repairs made from the storm on 3-24. I hope the roof can take it one more time. What I'm dreading the most are the wife and granddaughter. Both are deathly scared of storms and will be in full panic mode. I hate this time of year!

Looks like most of this activity is north of the Houston area, but this morning, the air is so thick you can cut it with a knife! Humidity has to be at or near a hunert percent! Muggy and 70 degrees... This is a bad feeling start to the day...
I pray the Lord keep all of my Green Screen brothers n sisters safe from harm.

That was my thought as well. There is LOTS of moisture in the air. That south wind was blowing early this morning as it was yesterday.

I don't know why they are only forecasting the "bad" or high risk area right over central texas up through Ok and Kansas? The front will push all the way through the area. All of Central and East Texas are in the line of this thing.

Be prepared none the less.

Remember last weekends storms. They were saying NE Texas was where they would blow up. Well, the radar proved otherwise. Sure all of E Texas got smacked, but so did alot of the rest of the state.

I heard a DFW TV weather guy make a good point this morning. He said he keeps getting asked why many weather apps are showing such a low percentage chance of storms (20-30%) when he and others are throwing out big warnings. He reminded viewers that that info on most apps is recalculated hourly and the storms - if they occur - are going to be the type that pop-up and get dangerous quickly.

Latest look has the bulk of the storms flaring up east, southeast of the DFW area from the app I checked. Good news for me but bad news for those out east. I just hope it's ALL much-to-do about nothing.
I've brought all the plants in and covered my truck ( I know, not much help with baseball size hail) but just incase my Cherokee anti-rain dance doesn't work.

Our first warning in Mills county. Looks like it is headed right over my house. It's now near Brady and entering San Saba county headed northeast.
