May 14-?, 2024 | Severe Weather/Tornado Outbreak


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A few smaller scale days coming up, but ensembles are hinting at an uptick in severe weather potential as we get deeper into May. 

Went from a general T-storm area to a slight risk here at the last Day 2 update, so tomorrow could get interesting.

I haven't heard of a confirmed tornado yet, but base velocity values were very high, 70mph-120mph in north Houston. It's possible that not a lot of hail was in the storm. (although, kind of hard to believe)

If you go due east of Dayton and due south of Riverside, where those 2 lines meet is about where i live. Never get that radar image out of my head.
