There's an enhanced risk out for western Kansas into SW Oklahoma today with a hatched 10 percent risk for tornadoes. A tornado driven upgrade to a moderate risk maybe needed according to the latest outlook.

SPC includes a threat of strong tornadoes from southwestern KS into northwestern OK and far northeastern TX Panhandle, mainly this evening just after sunset as low level jet ramps up over 60 knots. (RT) 10/12

"The Storm Prediction Center is upgrading their severe weather outlook to a level 4 out of 5 "moderate risk."

"One or two powerhouse rotating supercell thunderstorms will form somewhere in the Woodward to Garden City [Ks.] vicinity, and will be nasty – tornadoes/wind/mumbo hail poss.."
(Matthew Cappucci)

(bw: Is "mumbo" hail like the next level up from 'jumbo' hail?? Either a typo or insider jargon I am not familiar with :)

Mother Nature has given us EVERY TYPE of weather imaginable across the United States today. Only thing we're missing is the extreme heat (thankfully) but we have plenty of Red Flag Warning areas on top of all the winter weather warnings and advisories, flash flood watches, high wind warnings and now the Tornado Watch.

Surprised at lack of tornado reports given earlier radar appearance of that isolated OK storm, has to be a horde of chasers on it so even if after dark if something happened it would be seen. I wonder if there is some sort of low-level inversion as alluded to by earlier Amarillo AFD, keeping it slightly elevated.

Well, the Spotter Network report shapefile that I have loaded into my GRLevel2/3 programs shows a few reports of wall clouds, funnel clouds, and even a brief tornado or two.

Interesting thing is the Frederick storm doesn't even look impressive on Norman's radar. Definitely doesn't scream "PDS TOR" to me which highlights the importance of having weather spotters on the ground.

You can really see the hook on the Frederick radar.
