Severe Weather Preview in the TX Panhandle This Evening!

Awesome shot of a tornado on the ground near Bushland, TX earlier this evening:

Snapshot of the Amarillo radar, Storm Relative Velocity mode, showing strong rotation just Southwest of Canyon, TX at about 8:10 pm CDT this evening:

The brighter orange and near yellow color shows wind blowing away from the radar (upper right corner of the shot) at approximately 65 mph.  Brigher green immediately adjacent shows wind blowing toward the radar at approximately 30-35 mph.

This should be just a preview of what's to come later this week....if current model trends verify.  More to come...
