None of that was really forecasted, either.  It just kind of happened.

Yeah...but common sense says when you get these days of high humidity and lots of sun...doesn't take much of a cold front to hit to have the potential for something serious.

Too many people dependent upon computer models...

It probably explains why there are so many more storm chasers now days...toys are nice but your face meeting nature has a role too.

This video may be better, footage I never saw before...triple tornado formation, houses being shredded, post-storm damage.  Pretty amazing nobody died.

Somebody should overlay temp, dewpoint and wind direction changes during this period, should line up similar.

Been to that area a number of times. Just glad no one hurt.
