    Thank you, Gardenista! I’m a weather nerd, and this is a little too close for comfort.

    Many school districts in TX and OK either canceled schools or are releasing early. Even the most drama free meteorologists that I follow are very concerned.

    Today is also the 6 year anniversary of the EF-5 tornado in Moore, OK.

    That's what the TX Storm Chaser said--that they are usually low drama but this is a big deal.

    Yeah, I follow them and am also in the discussion group. I follow Steve McCauley, he used to work for WFAA in DFW but has since quit to go teach. Anyway, if he says something is concerning and he wishes he was missing something its definitely serious! :(

    Here we go - the first tornado warning of the day has been issued in north Texas, the second in west central Oklahoma. Multiple severe thunderstorm warnings are also in effect over the “high risk” areas in TX/OK. #txwx #okwx #severewx

    Hey everyone! Spotter, here. I'm in an elevated risk area but not the moderate or high, thank goodness. Today is a significant day. We're just waiting for it to blow.

    The tornado watch issued this afternoon is only the second time in SPC history that has a 95% risk level for all categories: tornado, wind and hail. The other instance was in Alabama on April 27, 2011.

    It's also only the 23rd time the SPC has issued a high risk category for tor since 2010. The last time was over two years ago.

    And then there's the flooding threat.
