Looks like more wind threat and hail to me with that but that is some fat cape for sure! Wouldnt be surprised if a couple rotated but would have to push out ahead and tap the turning of winds if not more so a sustaining process MCS? might have to watch as this looks to be on the edge where the heat is starting to build. I hesitate derecho talk

Yeah not a good tornado sounding. Probably could see some wall/funnel clouds with supercells but they would have a hard time touching down with the weak low-level moisture/RH and weak low-level winds. But as has been said, very nice instability and strong shear. The weak low-level moisture (bit of an inverted V signature, but not classic) suggests damaging winds is definitely a big threat, especially when stacked with 4600 CAPE.

It can be said that todays MCS was a derecho. There's enough significant wind reports... but the only thing in my mind that could hold it back is the lack of continuous or even more widespread damaging wind reports along the path. HOWEVER, it's important to know that this area is pretty sparsely populated so the last point isn't really that valid. There's no other reason why there'd be such big gaps between reports. So I'd call this a derecho.

One interesting thing about the Plains. There is a West Texas Mesonet and an Oklahoma Mesonet. These help to make up for the lack of population, and are able to observe extreme winds and other things. Both of these things are GRLevelX placefiles you can use for free.
