Curious as to why this happened: For severe thunderstorm warning 793 (header text below), the warning text fed to RadarScope shows hazards as 60mph winds and penny sized hail. Meanwhile, the spoken warning on KEC-55 says 60mph winds and pea sized hail, and KEC-56 never issued the warning. Both Johnson and Ellis counties are on the coverage list for both stations. Ultimately, I got the warning (an example of why it's important to have multiple sources of information) but I don't recall having that happen before. Here's the top of the warning: 793 WUUS54 KFWD 051901 SVRFWD TXC139-217-251-052000- /O.NEW.KFWD.SV.W.0199.200905T1901Z-200905T2000Z/ BULLETIN - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED Severe Thunderstorm Warning National Weather Service Fort Worth TX 201 PM CDT Sat Sep 5 2020
You IDIOTS continue to SUCK at your job!!!!
Need a flash flood advisory or a flash flood warning because the roads here are flooded in a lot of the parts from the heavyweight we just got
Just curious, no warnings or watches for tornadoes were issued in The Malakoff and Mabank areas yesterday. Was the radar not showing the storms to be strong enough to produce tornadoes or were they just that quick to pop up?
Well 5.0in since this morning. We should be done with it about 5pm
Kaufman Tx 815 pm may 15
Video we shot between Olney and Archer city TX . Thursday 5-7-20 where we gave the 2.8" hail report and strong RFD . The national weather service always has our permission to use any and all weather photos we get.
Trained spotter: Currently hailing in Little Elm, intersection of Main and 423. Size ranging from a dime to a penny in size from visual estimate inside my house. Has been hailing for over 5 minutes now.
Rain, lightning, and pea sized hail moving through Cross Roads right now.
why the delay on Severe TSM warning for Denton/Collin Co?
I’m a skywarn spotter in Godley. Live behind Godley High School last reported wind speed from weather station was at 12:25am and it was at 76mph. First pic is the north side of my barn 2nd pick is the south side.
