This special forecast discussion has been issued as the Storm Prediction Center has outlined a 10% risk of tornadoes, making this a high-end slight risk severe weather area today.
Tornadoes have already been confirmed today, with gut-wrenching video showing trailers being thrown about like paper airplanes.
This was not unexpected, but the magnitude was, in a few aspects. I anticipate the threat to increase as more rotation in the atmosphere is seen in northeast Texas as the storms also move east into this rotation.
A short-term Storm Action Day is now in effect.
