When a thunderstorm causes rapid cooling of the air around it, the cool air sinks, slams into the ground all around it, and spills out in all directions. When this air spills out in all directions it does so as high winds.

The sudden winds last night were associated with an outflow boundary. It was as clear as a bell on radar.

Outflow boundary, not a downburst. Both involve rapidly descending, cool air but are different. Downburst winds radiate out in all directions from underneath a supercell; outflow boundaries are like fronts...moving ahead of a longer string of storms in in one general direction.

I thought the high winds were caused by all the bloviators who post to this blog, including me.

Thought they were caused by a serious low pressure area - which was caused because Wise County sucks.

Does that mean that the climate changed by itself or did man have something to do with it?

Did the wind slow that ambulance down so you may finally catch it?

Funny, since moving to Austin I haven't heard any weather person mention the term "cap" in describing weather events. Guess it only affects north Texas weather. Also, Polar Vortex seems out of favor this year.
