Needless to say, seeing that DFW slap bang in the middle of today's current tornado watch box makes me a little more excited about our forthcoming chase - discussion right here:

We are leaving in 12 days time - 7 May. Yes DFW does mean Dallas Fort Worth. Granbury in Hood County, TX must be getting a right pounding right now - would not be suprised to see lowerings from that storm right now....

that is the one with DBZ of 70 and two areas of rotation. In fact on radar it could be trying to develop a hook.

    problem is the Highway 171 through Godley runs parrallel to a rail track - might have problems crossing it and staying with the storm. Head towards Cleburne, get on the 174 E and then runs onto 67E - that might take you with the SW quad of the storm..

    A tornado has reportedly touched down in the vicinity of I-20 and I-35W in south Fort Worth.

    EDIT: On one of those traffic cams at I20/I35 you can see people piled up under the overpass.

    TOTAL monster supercell now, we could be looking at a large tornado at any time imo. Moving into very favourable enviroment, well more favourable than before.
