    December 16-18 Winter Storm Threat

    Didn't get as much out of that heavy band that passed through central OH as I expected. "Walked" outside and saw a coating of ice on pretty much everything though, and almost fell a couple of times. Definitely would not want to be out on the roads right now around here. Backyard station showing 29F right now and still pretty moderate -FZRA falling. As much as I love interesting meteorological events, ice storms aren't something I enjoy.

    June 9-11 Severe/Heavy Rain Threats

    I've had some really bad luck with storms this year. Almost everything has either missed or split me. The last good storm that even had some decent lightning in it was on Christmas Eve, of all times. So, I'm definitely hoping I at least get something decent this weekend. I'd imagine more of an MCS setup is likely, but GFS is showing a non-zero tornado threat in central Ohio late Saturday. Definitely will be watching how this evolves.

    May 7-14 Severe Possibilities

    Didn't post it earlier since it was pretty unimpressive in comparison to the stuff going on down in Kentucky, but did manage to see a really brief tiny funnel cloud in a storm that passed to the north of me here in central Ohio. Heard reports of some strong wind gusts in Newark, but not much else. Caught me off guard or I would have tried to get a pic of it.

    May 7th-9th Severe Weather Episodes

    looks like the second tornado east of Mill Creek roped out for now.

    I ended up getting knocked out first round from too high of a temp forecast and putting no precip. Was fun though. I'll probably keep forecasting since this is likely going to be my last year. Good luck to everyone still in it!

    Gonna be cutting it close on my end. The 14kt wind that just got reported is a big help and puts me ahead by 2 points. However, my 0.00" and his 0.06" precip call could be the deciding factor. If temp hits 72+ I think I'm locked in. If temp stays 71 or lower, 0.05" would tie us back up (with him winning the tiebreaker) and 0.06"+ would give him a 0.4 point lead. Either way, at least it won't be a blowout!

    If the low drops below 50, ill be pretty much neck and neck with my competition. For tomorrow: Me: 73/44/14/0.00 Competition: 71/45/12/0.06 Spent forever contemplating 72/73 on the high, as well as the precip. Having the temp stay above 50 before 06z tonight would make me feel a little better.

    Me: 69/50/17/0.15 Competition: 68/49/16/0.22 Precip was a tough call, but agree that it looks like not too much falls after 06z. Was tempted to go lower (0.12) but didn't. High is with the hope the clouds break early. Will be curious to see how much rain has fallen when I wake up.

    Okay, I wasn't sure on that, but that makes sense. If that's the case, thank you because that just saved my mood the rest of today!

    I take that back about surviving. I didn't realize the "person with less human forecasts doesn't proceed" wasn't just a tie breaker clause. Oh well... was a fun year still.

    Oops... Forgot to forecast. Had a good forecast today, so it figures I'd forget. Thankfully I guidanced, so that'll help some in the "overall" with not getting a penalty. Since I had the bye this week, I guess I'll survive. First forecast I've missed the entire challenge

    April 2016 General Discussion

    Caught some brief K-H clouds in Columbus this morning. First time I've seen em in person, so it was pretty neat. Definitely a bright spot in the day long stratus deck. Still, definitely hoping the cold is more transient...
