If you have a smart phone (iPhone, Android), I strongly recommend the use of the MyWarn App.. which operates in the background of your phone to let you know when there’s a general “heads up” risk of severe thunderstorms and/or tornadoes (day 1 and day 2 outlooks from the NWS/Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK). As the risk becomes more immediate and tornado and severe thunderstorm watches from the NWS/Storm Prediction Center and flash flood watches from the NWS/Austin-San Antonio become necessary, you’ll be notified. Finally, when the weather becomes an imminent and urgent threat to life and to property and tornado, severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings are issued from the NWS/Austin-San Antonio, you’ll be the first to know through this app whether you’re at your home or on the road in the USA. The GPS location feature of your phone tells the app where you are and you’re notified immediately whether you’re in Austin or Chicago. All the details can be found here.

315pm CT – Saturday / 21 December 2013
.. Skies Clearing Across the IH35 Corridor ..
The upper air low pressure area continues to move northeastward across the Texas south plains
as drier and more stable air settles south southeastward across our IH35 corridor counties.
As skies clear, the threat of precipitation has ended.
This is my last statement regarding this weather event.
Have a great remainder of your weekend… a Merry Christmas and to all, happy holidays.
