I was looking at taf and radar and saw texas and ok getting hammered by storms. one taf was calling for wind variable20gusting40.

no thanks
you getting hail and thunderstorms today? ojne airport in texas had 700 ovc and the winds were all over the place.
a few T-storms..... we got a little hail last night, but nothing big enough to do any damage.... there's a line right now just SW of OKC that's heading our direction that looks pretty mean.... I noticed the winds around here were all over the place too.
We're not getting much in the way of wind, but we've been hammered by thunderstorms all day long up north of you.
Yeah, I figure I'll take the 150 up after work and get some nice level 5 T/S IMC time........ ha...... yeah right.....
I'm not there right now but this is a METAR near Houston:

I can't believe the 190 @ 29kts at OKM...... UGH!!!
The area between here (Austin) and Dallas along I-35 has been getting hammered pretty hard for the past few days. Austin is under a severe thunderstorm and tornado watch and it's raining right now. We haven't had anything too bad yet, but the worst is supposed to be arriving this afternon. I was supposed to take my CFI 'ride at DAL yesterday but that got scrubbed, of course.

Thats what they call a norther... I love those storms, they are fun to watch rolling in (when not flying of course).

When I moved to FL people talked about "crosswinds" and "gusts", and I was like, what winds? I took my checkride with winds 13G20 because thats about the best we got up at GTU in the early spring. I remember one time my CFI and I flew into AUS so I could get some practice with ATC about an hour before one of those storms blew in, and we had a 40kt GS (according to ATC) on 90 indicated in the tommy.

One time (about 4 years ago when I was in college), the temp (in Austin) dropped from about 75 to 40 in an hour or two (this was in early Dec). I know because I worked at radioshack at the time and we had all those indoor/outdoor thermometers on display. That was a cool storm...

Exactly. Sunday after taking my brother up to school in Warrensburg, comming back into Spirit(SUS) winds were 17017G28 with a possible 10kt windshear advisory on final. Not exactly the most fun to land in especially when the runway alignment at SUS is 8-26. And this was when the winds were dying down for the evening.

That happened to me when I was in high school. Had a football game, and it was 75 degrees. We all went out after that, and when we left to go home at 1am, there was 2 inches of snow on the ground.....that was freakin nuts!!
anyone know what they put in the taf/metar for tornadoes? anything special? or just wind information....
