Earlier TWC video showed the flooding & swollen Cimarron River in OK carrying a barn downriver.
A number of cells contain intense amounts of rainfall & some contain large hail. Another active evening/night.

Managed 3 tornadoes on Monday from the ‘big’ day, delib went SW away from circus yesterday into lower risk but enjoyed the chase more without lunatics and muppets everywhere but at the price of a shot at multiple tornadoes.

Today a little easier and more focused. Cold front diving SE then stalling just east of Amarillo TX. Dryline further south with juiced warm sector and backed SE winds throughout. Very hazy here atm but liking the Clarendon TX area for now. See how we go.

TS cool

Ha that's funny man, literally opened WZ for the first time in days while waiting for initiation to occur and where do you think we are sitting? That's right, Clarendon TX! Great minds right.

Anyway, not convinced we will maintain discrete modes for too long today but if we can pick one off out in the open warm sector that can stay clean it should be a real good shot at producing with some very nice dynamics at play once again.

The chaser convergence struggle is as real as it's ever been this year so we're always looking for that secondary target if at all possible to avoid losing my mind!

Here's a bit of rough video from the Minneola, KS tornado just on dark the other night. This thing was on the ground for almost an hour and took on several different forms. Unfortunately it took out a few houses along its 27 mile path. It has since been rated EF-3

Another Enhanced day issued by the SPC for today May 25.
SPC also has gone a 5% chance of EF-2 and above tornado strength.

My picks would be just East of Amarillo which indeedly looks good for supercelluar activity later in the day and SE of Amarillo, with nearby cities including Silverton.

Thunderstorms will enter a very favourable unstable atmosphere with CAPE levels around 4000J/kg, with bulk shear averaging 30 to 35kts, Tornadoes are a chance but I think some cells may well struggle to get one happening, the watch of a southerly LLJ is to be closely watched to help enhance tornado expectation. Hail to around 3 inches, possible up to 4 inches in size in other areas. Damaging surface wind gusts between 65 to 75mph I'm expecting as well.

I'll be watching the radars and satellites in the peak

Hi Wet Snow , We were north of KC during this event (don't ask), we thought it unwise to navigate a major metro area during peak(rush) hour from the north with a tornadic storm moving through and held our ground. We experienced lots of urban flash flooding from a day of heavy elevated storms.

The next day we drove past the area immediately south of Lawrence Kansas (scene of the chaser tour incident) and saw a very clear damage path through the woodland and unfortunately several houses.

Several miles North and that track would have resulted in a lot of devastation and possible widespread loss of life in Lawrence itself.

Here's a bit of GoPro video from that dirty old Tahoka, Texas tornado back in early May. This thing is still a bit of a mystery in terms of how/why it developed at all with the storm appearing mostly outflow dominant immediately prior to wrapping up a new meso further west of the initial updraft base.

All I know is we were cleaning out dust from the car for the next 2 weeks!
