US Tornado Outbreak – 26 April 2009

The ingredients were looking good for storm developing for days leading up till the 26th with dew points touching 70’F and good shear profiles with CAPE and EHI indexes all looking decent for tornado development. Early on the 26th the Storm Prediction Center issued a rare “High Risk” alert for parts of the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma reaching up to Kansas. As could be expected, later in the afternoon supercells began forming and shortly after their development tornadoes were already dropping. There were two main tornadoes reported and captured on film, one of a fairly weak tornado which then roped out only to form into a large 1/4 Mile wide tornado which is believed to have had winds capable of producing EF3 damage a while later as the supercell continued on.

 

Reed Timmer and the TornadoVideos.net team managed to capture this video of both the tornadoes.
