 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A storm survey conducted by the National Weather Service in Fort Worth found that a tornado touched down in the town of Crowley near Sharondale Drive and Morfield Drive. Damage was mostly confined to these two streets where two houses lost significant portions of their roofs and received damage to external walls. Two houses had portions of roof decking removed and several metal storage buildings were damaged. Several additional homes suffered minor roof damage and nearby trees had large limbs broken off. This tornado was rated an EF-2 with maximum sustained winds of 110-115 MPH. EPISODE NARRATIVE: North Texas was impacted with a linear mesoscale convective system as well as discrete supercell thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. An EF-2 tornado destroyed several homes in the town of Crowley and several other brief tornadoes were reported as well. Other severe reports included large hail and damaging winds.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The National Weather Service in Fort Worth conducted a damage survey and found that a tornado developed west of FM 933 and south of CR 1145. Tree damage was noted as the tornado crossed FM 933 and FM 67 one mile southeast of Blum. The tornado apparently increased in size and intensity after crossing FM 67. A large grain silo was toppled over on CR 1137, roughly 1.5 miles northeast of Blum. Extensive tree and power pole damage was also noted. The path width was over a quarter of a mile at this time. As the tornado crossed County Roads 1136 and 1133, widespread tree damage was noted, as was structural damage to roofs and windows. The tornado then moved across FM 2488 just south of the Johnson County line, where a well-engineered home lost portions of roof decking and a large barn was destroyed. Portions of the barn's metal skin were carried over a mile to the north-northeast. The tornado then crossed into Johnson County. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A rare winter tornado outbreak occurred on December 29 over portions of North Texas, spawning almost two dozen tornadoes. Very high shear and low instability created an environment favorable for tornadoes. A strong surface low pressure system and warm front located in southern North Texas increased the probablitity for low-level rotation. In addition to tornadoes, severe reports of large hail and flash flooding were widespread.
