A couple of cells have fired to the west of San Angelo, and what looks like a NW-SE oriented outflow boundary is visible to the NE of San Angelo moving W. I'm very interested to see what happens when they meet. I'd expect some sort of fireworks :lol:

Classic hook looks to be developing on the Taylor County supercell too. It looked crowded out earlier, but has absorbed all the other cels near it and now stands alone. One to keep an eye on, and I suspect it is the cell the chase team are on :)

The team must be spoilt for choice at this point in time! 4 tornado warned cells around Abilene's radar site Further west, theres a cell with a confirmed tornado near Patricia in Martin County. The southern most cell in Coleman County has developed a nice tight couplet on lowest scans, and has a nice hook in that area to boot. I'd hate to be in their position to have to choose which storm to follow. This cell is the small one I mentioned earlier btw which crossed the outflow boundary by San Angelo. It bloomed into an awesome cell as I expected :) Also as I post this a wicked hook has formed on the Eastland county storm. Too much going on to keep up :lol:

Edit: Tornado confirmed on the Coleman County Cell by storm chasers..

Hi all, started late in Norman after getting the Baron up and running chased a cell from early development near Aberlene Tx all afternoon and evening got some 2" hail maybe bigger trees shreaded cars damaged but we managed to stop shorty of being hit :-) our cell produced a promising lowering from a decent base at one time but then decided it was going to reform and structure its self in a different place which then put us out of position we chased this storm till 2100hrs where there were several repots of Tornados but we didnt get to see one I guess they were after dark??? we are crashed out in Cisco on the i20 at the Best western NOT RECOMMENDED as they have charged us $97 for one small double!!!! Im not impressed, anyway atm looks like SE TX for us tomorrow.

CHEERS, Steve.

The 28 tornadoes that occurred in Ohio on Sunday, July 12, 1992, went into the record books as the most recorded in a single day. They also contributed to the July 1992 record of 44 tornadoes in one month and a record annual total of 61 tornadoes. Fortunately, summer tornadoes tend to be weaker than spring storms and none of the 44 tornadoes during July 1992 were violent. This contributed to the absence of fatalities and only 36 injuries from the record number of tornadoes.

Blimey nowhere near the record.

The record outbreak of tornado's in a 24hr period was back on April 3-4 1974 when 148 tornado's were recorded in 13 states. This event was classed as a super outbreak because there was continous tornados for 18hrs and included many F5.

Here is a map of the tornado's tracks.

I stand corrected TEITS... But i think the record still stands at 28 for a single state in 24hrs... but correct me on this if i'm wrong again...

Weren't there 66 tornadoes in one day in England during November 1981?

I recall reading of the day in a Journal Of Meteorology.

Missouri has more than 28 earlier this year in 24 hours on March 12th (32 I think). That is probably a record for Ohio, but certainly not for a state. There were over 60 tornados in the May 3rd 1999 outbreak between Kansas and Oklahoma alone, so whilst significant, last nights action is nothing out of the ordinary.

Hi Everyone, it was a real messy set up over here huge amounts of rain and large hail I think a lot of reported Tornaods fell after or near dark we chased our cell real hard and that was supposed to have put down Tornaos in the eastland area but we didnt see none, only the lowering from a solid base earlier will try post a pic.

havent heard from paul and ozzie other than on the chase list and there first tornado but I guess they were on this set up and chased late into the wee hours so are probably still zapped! cheers all. Steve. oh ps we will probably drop south for 100 t0m 200 miles today then tomorrow head back noth to get in poition for monday on the Oklahoma Kansas boarders but as always is subject to change nearer the time :-)

The Baseball sized Hail is incredible. Quite a bit of damage to the Car.

Some of the cloud structures are breath-taking!

I suspect that the chase team followed the severe storm cluster across central TX and may have decided to keep driving southeast to be in a better location for today's redevelopment. That could have involved a 4-6 hour drive. The remnants of the severe storms are now in the Houston area but the frontal zone will probably redevelop later today further north around Temple, south of Waco. A position between Temple and Austin in east central Texas is recommended for today's operations.
