Storm spotters serve community through severe weather

Local News

With storms in the area Wednesday, storm spotters warn people to stay weather aware.

When most people head away from severe weather storm spotters head right to the middle of it to gather the latest information.

Storm spotter Kyle Guthrie and his team traveled to Baylor County for a tornado warning Wednesday, and he said they didn’t anticipate the events that happened.

“We weren’t expecting all of the tornadic activity [Wednesday],” Guthrie said. “It was more of a lower threat, unfortunately, the warm sector has overridden and the atmosphere has become unstable.”

With the tornado outbreak the last two days across Texoma, Guthrie said residents need to be taking the right precautions and listen to your meteorologists when these storms are approaching. 

“They cannot forecast in your backyard but we can get pretty close,” Guthrie said. “Take yesterday for instance, over in the Charlie area over there it only takes one tornado to be devastating and so just be very weather aware. It is springtime in Texas.”

With these storms, meteorologists and storm spotters hope Texomans will stay safe.

Guthrie also said they look at weather modules all day to determine what storms they need to pursue.
