Looks like a repeat of yesterday. Caught in the squeeze of the ridge and Alberto, these cells can be pretty potent.

Sorry to hear about the damage - surprisingly severe.

Upon inspection today, several fences were not just blown down but torn in half. Same with playsets. Some metal dog kennels were thrown from neighbors backyard over their house and across the street into other front yards. Radio antenna towers were blown down in the area, as well as quite a few trees. I just got done patching shingles on my roof in prep for the next round of BS should it erupt. :(

Sunday afternoon briefing from Jeff:

Air mass appears primed for another rough over strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

Weak short wave over deep east TX will move SSW and into SE TX during peak heating this afternoon. Radar already shows showers and thunderstorms along the Sabine River and developing over the Golden Triangle area. This activity should continue to move SSW/SW into an increasingly hot air mass with surface temperatures expected to reach the mid 90’s over the area. Inland moving seabreeze boundary will likely collide with SW moving outflow boundaries from storms over east TX this morning and was the case yesterday afternoon resulting in some severe wind gusts over the metro area.

With trigger temperatures in the low 90’s would expect activity to begin to develop by early afternoon and continue into the mid evening hours. Main threats from storms will be strong gusty winds and large hail along with brief heavy rainfall and lightning.

As a reminder, should adverse weather approach your location especially if on a boat seek safe shelter/harbor immediately.

I noticed an interesting phenomenon with last nights thunderstorm that blew through Atascocita. Just as the storm was approaching I noticed a low continuous roaring sound coming from above. All I could guess was that it was the sound of turbulent air or somehow I was hearing the updraft, then I was reading about "hail roar". Is it possible to have hail roar without hail actually making it to the ground?

Though folks in my area said they could see a funnel lit up by the lightning, what I'm betting happened was a pretty bad microburst. The damage pattern I saw looked to be more straight line.

The radar was sure ominous.
