Allegedly, he’s up for parole in the spring.

 

 

Surely his freshly keestered burner phone gets reception and surlyhorns there in the klink.  Somebody put some $ on his books so he can get some extra air time to surf the internets.

Fucking tornadoes in January? Go home Texas.

Actually quite common in the winter for states along the gulf coast, similar to in the middle of summer for Canada and the northern tier of states.  Strong cold/warm boundaries with sufficiently high dew points and wind patterns.

So what time is this shit supposed to pop-off?

I don't know (posting from Dallas here) but I just got home to work rest of the day from here.  I was not going to take the chance of getting stuck in a commute during this shitshow

As someone who runs an after-school program (private, so not beholden to AISD moves), this is the gist of my response to parent emails so far this afternoon.

Do we need to put out an APB on PhD?

When/why did he chunk up the deuces?

He met some guy who asked him to develop his app, so we might get phdhorn Weather 1.0 for our phones around March.

That and he gets out on parole in March.

No offense, but that's a little disconcerting knowing a surly poster runs a daycare.

Understandable. But I take pride in molding future assholes.

KXAN is showing that the really bad stuff isn't supposed to get into Austin till after dinner, maybe 7 pm.

If this exact line of storms comes through in May then I don't see everyone cancelling everything. It looks like it'll be a "fun" one, but nothing unusual or apocalyptic.

Pretty sure that's illegal there Sandusky.  For those of you in North Texas, a tornado watch has just been issued.

Private schools in Dallas are starting to send kids home early as a precaution due to expected storms. Which is silly because schools are some of the best built structures in town.

AISD just cancelled all after-school activities, including after-care. Yikes.

This is a good thing, because my kid had a soccer game at Reagan (excuse me, "Austin East College International Pseudo Preparatory School") right when shit was predicted to blow up.

I mean the weather forecast is so severe for both Austin & Houston that weather.com has no advisories up for either location.

They don't want to spook the herd into jamming the highways to Houston and Dallas.

It’s not supposed to hit the Houston metro area until 10pm or so. You’ll see some watches posted later this afternoon.

That's my hood yo. I run my dog around that soccer track almost every morning. Even see white women jogging around. How that area has changed.

FW gets the nasty around 5-ish and we get it on other side the Metroplex about 60-90 mins later.

You've have to excuse Ursuline, Hockaday and St. Mark's. I think there's a little PTSD going on there -- and for anybody that's driven through that area post-Oct tornado, I don't blame them.

Hockaday has to protect the assets:

Funny name for a town.  Vic is a gunter.

Anyways, DFW NWS last night compared today's predicted atmospheric setup with Dec. 26, 2015.  That produced the Garland/Rowlett tornado that blew cars off of I-30 and killed 13.  Hopefully the cloud cover doesn't burn off today, reducing the heating that would fuel the storms.

Squall line may move more slowly than predicted through east Texas, with wind and tornado risk continuing well after midnight. NE Texas in the bullseye.

Cap currently expected to hold in SE Texas, but if it does break this afternoon they could see possible supercells form east of the squall line.  

 

Timing map and FAQ:

https://www.weather.gov/images/fwd/graphicast/image_full3.jpg?b645737ba8388c19eb16333468828f6c

tl;dr:  The DFW NWS says don't worry about what risk zone you're in, prepare to die.

Yeah, I deliberately avoided that area for a while, but have driven through it in the last few weeks.  Pretty shocking.  Looks like Wichita Falls 40 years ago (not quite that bad, but still).

This is some bull. So I have a a vault that is "tornado proof" here at work where I'll be until 6 and now it looks like the nasty is going to get here sometime around 7 or 8.

So I remember from the October Dallas tornadoes there was talk about how the cap broke.  If I'm in Dallas and just saw some damn sunshine I assume that's not a good thing eh??

Yeah I did too and had the same thought.  It was very brief, though.

Work In Denton and live in Corinth. Think the squall line hits right around rush hour when everyone is sitting on I-35. Good times.

As far as Centex is concerned, there is a nice line of fuckery forming out across Llano county.

Yeah it is lining up with the future radar from earlier... They posted severe weather advisories for most of the I-35 corridor all the way down to Encinal

In Fort Worth, nothing yet, but it’s starting to get a little darker out

For "us" in the inner metro, the remaining threat seems to be something pretty nasty down east of Brownwood.  Hopefully peters out by the time it hits us.
