    August Discobs Thread

    I have a Vantage Vue. It says the max rain rate this month was 9.93 in/hr at 8:33PM tonight. It also says that we received 8.07" this month, 4.51" today. It was raining so hard in Great Falls tonight that looking out the window, I couldn't even see the trees. Just a wall of water. Our driveway is probably finally totally gone.

    Furthest NW corner of Ffx Co: Measured 8-3/4" on top of both SUVs. Wasn't enough IP/Sleet at 6:00pm to measure or even tell that it ever happened. Light snow 25'F/23'F. EDIT: No stickage or ice coating on tree branches at all.

    February Medium/Long Range Disco 2

    I forget the propagation delay, but here it comes. The delay is somewhere between 8 minutes and 8 hours depending on what type of radiation or particles are causing the effect on the atmosphere. http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/

    February Medium/Long Range Disco 2

    For the last few years, I have been watching how solar activity affects our weather patterns. But my skills are not comparable to the regulars on this board. I thought maybe a few of you might like to explore the connections. If the models already take this into account, please forgive my ignorance. Last summer, most times after there were significant emission events we seemed to get large well organized storm systems. There seemed to be a rough correlation to what part of Earth was facing the sun during each event's impact. There is a particularly hot period coming up in the next 8 to 16 hours. With your experience, you might be able to see how the emissions change the patterns tomorrow. I watch the Wing Kp Model 24 hour plots daily. When the Kp exceeds 5 for a significant time, it seems to correlate to stronger storms. Here are a few links: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/wingkp/24_hour.html http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/alerts/alerts_timeline.html http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/forecast.html
