Episode Narrative Thunderstorms began early in the morning on the 6th, continued most of the day and into the early morning hours of the 7th. An upper level low pressure remained anchored over Colorado during this time period. Surface low pressure was located over southeast Colorado, with a dryline extending south along the Oklahoma and Texas panhandle border. Outflow boundaries were also present from previous thunderstorm activity. These boundaries were important in the formation of thunderstorms throughout the day. Moisture was in abundance that day, along with very strong instability. Wind shear remained quite favorable for supercell thunderstorms. Most of the thunderstorms began over the northwest half of Oklahoma, but moved south and east into the morning and afternoon hours of the 7th. Large hail, high winds, and tornadoes were common, with flooding rains also present. One small supercell thunderstorm developed east of the main thunderstorm area during the evening and produced two small tornadoes as it moved to the north. Two other tornadoes occurred in the early morning hours as thunderstorms moving northeast into central Oklahoma interacted with gust front boundaries from previous thunderstorms.
Event Narrative A house fire was started after a direct lightning strike. No injuries were reported.
