Episode Narrative A strong upper level storm system was moving through the southwest US toward the Southern Plains during the morning of the 13th. A warm front developed and moved north in Western North Texas by afternoon, with moist and unstable air to its south. Also a dry line moved into Western north Texas south of the warm front. Thunderstorms developed over western Texas and moved in the southern parts of western north Texas. Supercell thunderstorms quickly developed and moved east through Knox, Baylor, and Archer counties. Very large hail, strong wind gusts, and tornadoes were reported with these storms. North of the warm front, severe thunderstorms moved east and affected the rest of western north Texas. Large hail was the main threat with these storms.
Event Narrative Storm chasers observed a large and potentially damaging tornado to the south and southeast of Seymour. Fortunately, the tornado occurred in rural areas and no structural damage was reported. The tornado formed near U.S. Highways 183/283 approximately 6 miles south-southwest of Seymour, and the width of the tornado quickly increased to about one-half mile as it moved to the east-northeast. The tornado became obscured by rain, but it believed to have dissipated before reaching state highway 114.
