This is true Weather Channel mindset. More than once through the years people have been literally dying in a tornadic storm (verified post-event) while TWC broadcasted reruns of shows such as “Ice Pilots”. and the like. I have angrily emailed them about this but no response. They prefer to fiddle while proverbial Rome burns .If TWC has issued a 7 TorCon why arent they covering the outbreak instead of airing "Ice Pilots"?
Yeah I had to replace the roof and the hood, top, and a quarter panel on the wife's car. Saying that date is a bad word around here after I found that home insurance in this area has lesser coverage than comparable places because of our frequency for severe and large hailstorms.Norman is getting pounded with large hail for at least the second time this year (and keep in mind the amount of damage done on April 28th earlier this year...).
TDS over Johnson, OK. Warning didn't go out until couplet was right on top of them and it was a radar-confirmed TORR right away.
The cap didn't erode fast enough to accomodate the supercellular storms and they quickly evolved into a QLCS. No surprise as QLCS tornadoes tend to be weak and short lived. Always seems like something falls apart at the last moment to prevent a major tornado outbreak.Lasted about two more scans then dissipated. Despite implications of HRRR prognostications (phat, unbroken purple UH streaks), these have not been long-track tornadoes today.
