Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 7:19 PM CDT on April 30, 2016


... NWS damage survey for April 29 2016 tornado...

.Overview... So far... one tornado has been confirmed from the thunderstorms
on the afternoon and evening of Friday April 29th. The confirmed tornado
is in Collin County... where a brief tornado occurred at a business just
north of the city of Celina.

Surveys were done today by National Weather Service crews... and by local
emergency management officials in several areas... including damage in Grayson...
Bosque... Van Zandt... and Henderson counties. The investigations are still
underway for areas of reported tornadoes in Grayson and Bosque counties. At
this time... no determination has been made for minor damage in these areas.
There are also several areas of mainly tree damage in Henderson and Van
Zandt counties... which was caused from the same parent storm which
spawned the Lindale tornado. Further investigation will be done with this
storm and damage to determine the most likely cause of the damage.

No matter the cause of all of the damage... there has been no evidence that
any of the damage was caused by winds in excess of 75 mph.

.Celina tornado...

Rating: EF-0
estimated peak wind: 65-75 mph
path length /statute/: 0.3 mile
path width /maximum/: 65 yards
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: Apr 29 2016
start time: 4:53 PM CDT
start location: 4ne Celina / Collin / TX

End date: Apr 29 2016
end time: 4:54 PM CDT
end location: 4ne Celina / Collin / TX

Survey summary: the damage near Celina was caused by a brief tornado
which produced damage for approximately one third of a mile... and was
slightly more than 50 yards wide. There were several trees which had
limbs broken off... and one tree which was uprooted... in part due to
saturated grounds near a pond. The most heavily damaged structure was a
building that resembled a barn. This building had most of the roofing
materials blown off... with some of the metal roofing material thrown
into a nearby house... causing additional roof damage.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes into
the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
EF3... strong... .136 to 165 mph
EF4... violent... 166 to 200 mph
EF5... violent... >200 mph

Note:
the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
change pending final review of the event and publication in NWS
storm data.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
633 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions should prevail at tall taf sites through the overnight 
hours with light northerly winds. Drier air has taken hold of the 
region in the wake of the weak cold front that pushed through the 
area last night and early this morning. This frontal boundary 
will remain stalled across central Texas with abundant moisture in 
place to its south. MVFR ceilings will be possible along and south of 
this frontal boundary on Sunday morning...which may manage to creep 
northward into the Waco taf site. Have included this potential 
with a tempo group for now with relatively low confidence of 
occurrence. Where winds become light tonight...some patchy ground 
fog will be possible...but do not expect impacts to visibilities at any 
of the taf sites tonight or Sunday morning. 


Northeast winds will increase to 10 to 20 kts late Sunday morning 
and persist through the afternoon hours. Another upper-level 
disturbance will result in scattered showers and storms after 
midnight on Monday morning...which remains outside of the forecast 
period at this time. Rain and possibly a mention of thunder will 
need to be included in subsequent taf packages.

Previous discussion... /issued 304 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016/ 
low level dry air continues advecting into the area behind a cold 
front now entering central and southeast Texas this afternoon. In 
addition...the upper disturbance responsible for Friday/S convective 
outbreak continues lifting north away from North Texas. Subsidence 
across the area is helping to break out the stratus that/S been 
around all day. Clearing skies...light north winds and some wet 
soils around may lend to some patchy fog...especially across the 
southeast half of the area where heavier rains fell. Lows will 
range from the lower 50s northwest to the lower 60s southeast. 


A broad longwave trough remains prevalent over the central and 
western Continental U.S.. another upper low now over Las Vegas Nevada is 
literally rotating in a fujiwara fashion with the old low now 
moving north over Nebraska...all within the broader long wave 
trough. The system over Las Vegas will begin to turn east and move 
across Arizona/New Mexico tonight and Sunday morning. Meanwhile at 
the surface...a secondary cold front will move south-southeast 
into Texas during the afternoon hours. There should be enough 
moisture across our central Texas counties and ahead of the 
secondary cold front for a low chance for some strong-severe 
storms southeast of Gatesville to Athens line late in the day 
Sunday. Hail...downburst winds and frequent lightning would be the 
main hazards Sunday afternoon across central Texas where highs 
warm into the lower 80s with ample instability and deep layer 
shear present. 


The cold front will clear the County Warning Area later Sunday night and early 
Monday...as isentropic ascent and lapse rates increase somewhat 
above the frontal inversion. The entire County Warning Area will be within the low 
level cool sector...so any strong storms will likely be elevated 
with the main threats being small hail...frequent lightning and 
brief heavy downpours. At this time it does not appear rainfall 
amounts warrant any flood watches east of I-35...but additional 
amounts will likely exacerbate ongoing river flooding issues on 
the Brazos/Trinity/and Sabine River basins. Lows Monday morning 
will be mostly in the 50s with highs warming into the 60s northwest 
and the lower 70s southeast. As this second upper low lifts across 
the area Monday and Monday evening...better rain chances will be 
south of I-20 where column moisture will be a little Richer. Low 
chances will linger across central Texas Monday evening...before 
subsidence moves in with the departure of this next system. 


The current and progressive pattern aloft finally appears to 
become more amplified the rest of this coming week. A full 
latitude upper ridge will slowly move east from The Rockies and 
over the plains with a dry and seasonable week ahead. This is good 
news for the southern and eastern areas that need time to dry out 
from recent heavy rains. Medium range models do show another 
strong system arriving later next weekend and into early part of 
the week of may 7th. Many details still need to be resolved 
regarding this system...as models usually struggle mightily with 
track...timing...moisture and instability beyond 120 hours of the 
forecast. We have plenty of time to recover here and get more 
data into models for the time being with dry weather expected 
after Monday and much of the week.
