EWX confirms a tornado did touch down in the Quarry/Linda Drive area near 281 in San Antonio overnight. The survey team is looking at the damage to estimate the strength of that tornado.

Bust.
But my family in San Antonio said their storm was intense.

Looks like we escaped any sort of big flooding. Seems like models were right-on with guidance from last Friday with a progressive solution and a non-training vertical wind-field setup.

Isolated severe storms in San Antonio with that weak estimated EFO-EF1 tornado made for a rough day there...

Now, looking ahead to a beautiful week after a rainy Monday. Be safe on the roads, everyone!

VERY happy we missed this one. According to my family, the Quarry area of San Antonio really got hit hard.
Onward to a lovely week -

I see a new storm causing trouble for the Pacific Northwest. Will this be our next storm system?

Fortunately it looks like the strongest dynamics with that system will pass well to our North and not be a problem for our weekend ahead. The next storm system that may have some impact on our sensible weather appears to be around the First days of March.

One more EF-0 for two pair. These cells over performed and raised a ruckus through Taylor and Snook before slamming into the "Aggiedome" at the Brazos River and more stable air. Given their rapid forward speed 50 mph I thought we were going to be slammed at least by high straight-line winds. Local peak gusts reached about 40-50 mph. Sure beat 70 mph.

The afternoon ECMWF suggests a rather potent longwave trough approaching from the West as we end February and begin March.
