    You don’t understand Okies then lol. Any snow or ice or tornado “prediction” drives them to their local grocer to buy mega items. I have no idea why but they just do. I always figured grocers must be in on it and give the weathermen a cut of the action for overdoing the forecasts.

    My tornado shelter is pre-stocked so I don’t need to go. And I have enough pantry food to last a long time if everything is shut down.

    Its looking like there will be a window of opportunity to destabilization to occur tomorrow after morning storms. Still a lot of uncertainty, but the door is cracked open.

    Yes and I hate to be that person I think 3 days out is still too far out but Monday if things can come together just right could be one of those days. Everything is there just needs to come together.

    Meaning large tornadoes?
    The truth is never embarrassed by honest inquiry.

    NWS Norman talked very strongly about Monday in this afternoon's AFD.

    Severe thunderstorm warnings out for the storms moving into the Metro from the SW right now. Looks like large hail will be the main threat.

    Monday is still the day. If everything still looks the same when Monday comes, it will be a high risk day.

    Looks like the main blob today will hit a lot farther west than models were showing so that helps with this afternoon’s threat correct?

    Well...the storm that just moved north through the city will have ruined everyone's plans to sleep in. Just a bit of hail at my place, but some crazy lightning and thunder.

    The Numbers are off the Charts for Monday. About as high as you can get for Sheer. Moderate Risk is now out wouldn't be shocked if it's High at some point even before storms start.

    They should issue a high risk with Day 2 outlook tomorrow in order to cause the forecast to bust Monday. Lol

    One thing Monday wont already be in place. Its warm front starts off along red river in the morning. So there is question on how far north it goes.

    Hey guys. I am currently out of town so I donít have normal access and everything that I usually do. Of course I wonít be back in OKC until Tuesday, but I will still be trying to keep watch on what is happening.

    Right now for Monday afternoon the SPC has Moderate marked for all of C and W OK. This is usually SOP for potentially dangerous events. I think we could see upgrade to High risk on the morning of the event, but it will likely depend on the shear parameters that look to setup for either discrete cells coming off the dryline versus a large cluster or line of storms. At this time, it does appear that discrete supercells will be the result. And this could lead to several rounds of storms producing multiple tornadoes and large hail. If storms can remain separated enough, large and long-tracking tornadoes look possible, but this is nearly impossible to forecast even on day of. We will have to see what we have Monday morning. More heat = more danger. The moisture will very much be in place.

    Again sorry for the lack of updates, I am posting this from mobile.

    The Sunday Morning Computer models are hinting at a major tornado outbreak now for Central and West Central Oklahoma. I'm sure it will change again but this is not looking good for central Oklahoma

    What model are you looking at?

    It seems to me that most of the CAMs (Hi Res models) are having trouble lifting the warm front as far to the north as the NAM and GFS have it, due to the large amount of rain that will stay north of it. Even the HRRR has the metro split.

    The warm front might be the key tomorrow. You don't want to be on or just south of warm front that is bad. Let's hope the warm front stays south. HRRR is model I was looking at. The Euro from last night was showing the warm front staying south of metro. Honestly not going to know until morning or even until storms form but I would be getting prepared today.

    No change I'm sure it's hard for them to go high risk. I risk is normally for when storms start to form or have formed. They mentioned more SW Oklahoma. At this point who knows. I have seen some say storm 12-2 for the metro. Others are saying after 6. Either way if they form into a squall line then flooding become a bigger issue and more people died from flooding then the May 31 El Reno tornado
