November 22, 2014 Severe Weather

By: 1900hurricane, 11:42 PM GMT on November 19, 2014

Texas has not had a severe report since the morning of October 13th, which is the timespan of over a month, but this long stretch of tranquil weather appears to be coming to an end. Model guidance has for the past several days been honing in on a southern stream trough ejecting into the southern plains while beginning to acquire a negative tilt this Saturday. While several of the smaller scale details are yet to be known, above average confidence exists in the overa...

It's no secret that this year has featured a rather slow severe weather season, especially across the southern plains of Texas and Oklahoma. Several factors have resulted in the slow season, such as the intensity of the multi-year southern plains drought and the magnitude of the cold intrusions this past winter and spring. Because of these and other reasons, good storm chasing days have been few and far between.

While it doesn't look like there are any si...

Another interesting fact is that the Winter Weather Advisories/Winter Storm Warnings issued by several forecast offices for two sepa...

Significant Weather for Texas on the Horizon?

Texas is often a place of extremes. The great state is subject to heavy rains and tropical cyclones due to it location on the tropical Gulf of Mexico. It is susceptible to very hot and dry conditions, thanks to its southerly latitude, its location on the lee side of the high elevations of the Intermountain West and Mexican Plateau, and the influence the North American subtropical ridge (lovingly know as the "Death Ridge") exerts across the state. Texas is also vulne...

Hello everybody. As some of you are aware, I haven't posted a new blog entry in over a year and a half. The reasons for this are various, but this by no means indicates a loss of passion for meteorology. Hopefully this summer, I'll be able to get back around to doing actual blog entries, but in the meantime, feel free to follow me on twitter! Because I can easily access twitter from my phone and because of its brevity, most of my thoughts on meteorology have been go...
