        • Tornado Safety: Fact, Fiction and Survival

          Tornadoes are among the most feared and deadly weather forces affecting the U.S.  Tornadoes most frequently occur in the United States, but have a climatography that extends over six continents (including Africa).  Once unpredictable and misunderstood, tornadoes killed far more people in ages past than they do today.

        • Storm Chasing vs Skywarn Storm Spotting: What's the Difference?

          People who actively pursue severe local storms, as opposed to those of us who seek appropriate shelter, fall into two main categories:  Storm Chasers and Storm Spotters.  The two groups each are comprised of weather enthusiasts, but have a distinctly different purpose for their activities.  

        • Dangerous Heat Levels in Texas Next Few Days

          Strong high pressure is continuing to bake the state of Texas. With strong high pressure, air is forced to sink. Sinking air heats up quickly and that is why temperatures are very hot in the state. In the Crossroads, we are seeing highs in the middle to upper 90s with some locations hitting triple digits. Some of the bigger cities like San Antonio, Dallas, and Austin will continue to experience high temperatures into the triple digits for the next few days. Excessive Heat Warning...
