    Last 15 minutes have seen a 12 degree drop in temp, hella wind picking up and some heavy downpours driving from FT Worth to Dallas.

    Is this just random crap or is a line building here?

    I swear, look at the radar and there is not a single indication of what I just drove through.

    I had to white knuckle my sprinter steering wheel just to stay in the lane due to wind.

    Those were very interesting, but this will always be the most terrifying tornado video ever, if nothing else because of the way the tension builds

    Drove through that Wednesday night. Fucking gorgeous. Massive build up on either side of the road but miraculously clear on the road. Then broke through. Pure black death on the east, sunset on the west and clouds boiling on the edge of the front. Was like being in guardians of the Galaxy or something.

    I love how this system is giving bertwing a sublte "No... Not you" in the Enhanced area.

    Is this for Wednesday? Day 1 today, etc? Just making sure I didn't confuse it for Thursday.

    It was labeled as Day 3. I wanted to make sure I understood that Day 1 is today instead of a forecast for tomorrow.
