Rain has not stopped here. Actually popped a flood advisory. Last night the models had us mostly dry today :spam: the bigger event was always tomorrow

This tornado in TX happened in a 2% tornado area and the severe watch lists EF2+ probs at just 5%. Goes to show that anything can happen even on the most marginal tornado setups

Curious how the 2nd impulse from WTX pivots out. If timing is right the orientation could prolong more E-W vs N-S which would help drive up totals. If it happens further south obviously inverse effect.

Looks like SA, Austin, and the Hill Country will miss out on tonight's round as storms developing over south TX will be disrupting inflow for the next disturbance moving out of Mexico. Sigh. That leaves one round for us tomorrow night. Hope that one can produce.

Almost on cue, all of that rain approaching DFW from the southwest evaporated basically over the Dallas/Tarrant county line. It feels like we're cursed.

I got .10 of an inch before it evaporated. Maybe it will help at least moisten mid-levels further southwest?

So far this event has been very underwhelming. Hoping this last system overproduces but i highly doubt it.

The Flash Flood Watch for ETX into the Arklatex still seems like overkill to me. The HRRR and NAM3k showing generally 1"-2" across the area. Locally higher amounts possible, but the soils can handle quite a bit and it seems like the storms should generally be progressive in nature. At this point I'm just hoping I can get at least 1". With the squall line moving in near midnight it may be losing some steam. We shall see...

Huge MCS off the coast of Texas in the Gulf that the models missed and a big outflow boundary moving out of the Panhandle. That should really help clear up today's rainfall forecast lol

This rain forecast definitely was a bust.

In other news whopping +33 daily SOI. Have not seen a negative since April 3rd, quite significant streak for historical Springs.

Made a post prior about high SOI Springs that starts reversing in May for wet, cool summers. In real time, not happening.

Yup, and that monster Tornado west of Lubbock happened in a slight area with 2% chance. Any word on strength or size? That thing looked like a beast. Had that gone over populated areas. Oh my.

Majority of models are not handling this setup well at all. I knew we were doomed yesterday when EWX put out that forecast map showing wide swaths of 3-4" precip. :lol:

I've received a whopping 0.05" for this event thus far. Yikes.

Also, LOL at EWX twitter:

Definitely huge, and likely pretty strong, but I have my doubts that it would have been an upper end monster in an urban area. The motion doesn’t look crazy violent in the videos I’ve seen, but it is easily the most photogenic wedge I’ve seen in a while, especially with all that loose dust in drought-stricken west Texas being easily lofted to define the full size of the tornado. Reminds me of a supersized Tescott 2018.

Rapid rise caused by the suppressed phase of the last CCKW and the background ENSO state? The next wave looks to be more coherent and MJO like vs the recent quick moving CCKW. I suspect we will see an uptick in svr wx across the Southern Plains as the MJO rotates into P8. This MJO could certainly pause any progression towards drought as June is typically a pretty wet month for a lot of Texas.

We have been complaining about missing out on rain the last few days but some very beneficial rain has fallen in the Panhandle and Western Oklahoma.

I hope so. Intraseasonal variability occurs, it's supposed to typically traverse the Pacific April-June even in Nina years (weakening ENSO.) The promises of those months delivering so far has not been the best grade. Lets hope that something changes in June. The background state hasn't changed. You're still looking at less than 27C over the tropical Pacific which is not ideal for sustained convection even when the CCKW/MJO passes over. We're entering the summer longwave pattern, these PVa digging eventually will be too far north.

After today's rain event, many of us will ride another 7-10 days of bone dry weather. That's been the killer too, underwhelming events for a lot and the intervals are far too long.
