  4. 75/53 but broken high clouds off and on so I give today a 8.5. Also really enjoying watching a turkey hen and her 7 chicks in my pasture. The chicks hatched about 10 day ago and she and the family are staying around the pasture. They are getting bigger by the day and now have feathers. I assume they can fly to low branches at night. I guess turkey families stay together for a couple of months so I am putting off cutting the pasture so they have high grass to hide in. Alex at Bretton Woods sent me another bear picture this AM and wanted to share with the group. Love this picture. Guess the bear was hungry and wanted to start up the grill. Living in C/NNE is the best!

    Interesting about the balsam fir. I did extensive hiking around Long Island after sandy and determined that species acted different then expected. Oaks received by far the most damage. They tended to fully uproot. I was able to locate several full blow downs in a preserve near my house. 100 mature red and white oaks toppled like dominos. Meanwhile red maple, sweet gum, black gum and tulip right next to them where perfectly fine. My theory on why the oaks took such a comparable beating is due to their folliage. Oak leaves are very robust and thus tended to stay on the tree during the many hours of strong winds leading up to the period of extreme winds that caused the blow downs. Most of the other species had a good amount of their folliage stripped earlier in the storm.

    Eek, i was just asking where you had been. Yeah, you keep me honest on those pond depths. It went dry during the big drought a couple of years back. You corrected me that it had never gone dry before but you were right it did at least another year. I think during the big drought it went dry in late July. By August I was able to mow the base of it. It went from full pond at the end of April to almost no water left in it so if this dry spell keeps up it will be dry pretty shortly. Now that the ground is so dry even a couple of inches of rain will not bring it up. We will see what happens...

    Powderfreak was posting pictures of snow so I had to stay away from this thread. Don't worry, I'm keeping a close eye on your obs and pond depth reports.
  9. Six mornings in the 30s so far. For June, only 2004 (8) had more. 50-50 on Friday morning being #7. Earlier full sun now filtered by high thin clouds.

    General Severe Weather Discussion 2018

    You know what's interesting...after seeing the damage across western CT after the event I started to notice that there seemed to be a striking similarity with regards to the type of trees that were knocked down and which weren't. I don't know anything about tree species and such but my friend from NH does. I wish when he was done for a few weeks I had thought about this b/c I could have mentioned it to him and he could have looked at the trees and such. But it was weird b/c you would have an area of damage and the trees that were down seemed to be a similar species.

    Spring/Summer 2018 Observations

    Greater coverage of rain Wed-Fri looks believable now. This thread I only care about QPF. My severe thoughts are in that thread. My grass needs 1.5+ inches of rain. Decent shot at it. I'm banking on the lower 1" threshold or it's gone until Sept. Obs question for East Hamilton County (Chattanooga area). Anybody get hail Tuesday evening? I saw a white-ish shaft of precip. Could have been sun on a rain shaft. Maybe hail? Dry IMBY though.

    Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018

    Now we're talking! Expect Slight Risks in our Region both Thursday and Friday. They are impossible to place attm. due to morning MCSs. However the said MCSs will deposit outflow boundaries OFBs. Looks like at least 40kt and possibly up to 60kt of shear which is great for June. Moderate shear over cooking OFBs is acceptable. Low levels appear quite veered though. Upper levels are also veered, so it is not a total loss. Slight directional shear is forecast, and one has to mentally rotate the whole thing clockwise about 90 degrees. Chasers need a hard right mover on an outflow boundary; otherwise, it is just straight winds and hail. Friday, due to lapse rates, the hail coring may be good. Thursday I am not able to be in the field. However the Mid-South should have a Slight. Friday I can get into the field if the set-up is right. MCS giveth and taketh. If it goes all MCC wash-out through midday the whole thing busts (so 2018). If a smaller MCS dissipates by late morning, it will deposit a (chaser) beneficial OFB, perhaps oriented NW to SE which would be ideal for a right mover. Probably won't happen. Probability of chase is low. Probability of MCC is pretty high in 2018, lol!
