The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) issued a HIGH RISK for severe weather on Monday (May 20, 2019) as a tornado outbreak was looking very likely.  This was the first time since May 2017 that the SPC issued such an outlook.  By Monday afternoon the forecast began to verify. Numerous rotating supercell thunderstorms popped up across west Texas and Oklahoma.  Tornadoes, damaging wind, large hail, heavy rain, and frequent lightning dotted the landscape of the southern Plains. Here's a look at some of the storms caught on camera. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1130566623381737473 The first tornado of the event was observed in Cottle County, Texas near the community of Paducah.
