Serious Tornado Risk: North Texas
The NWS Storm Prediction Center has updated its tornado risk map. Keeping in mind that 5% is the significant risk, 15% + hatched (hatched = violent tornadoes possible), this is significant. I agree with this as it is very similar to the enhanced risk area I posted at 2:36pm (scroll down).
If the warm front should scoot north a bit in Oklahoma, the tornado risk will increase in the south central part of the Sooner state.
Radar currently shows thunderstorms redeveloping over north central Texas. If you live in these areas
I urge you to keep up on the weather the rest of the afternoon and evening. Please make sure your dependents are aware of the risk. There is also a serious risk of very large hail and flash flooding. Remember: Turn around, don't drown.
