    Lots of scattered thunderstorms affected eastern Colorado and eastern New Mexico today, including the southeast Denver area. I heard there was a hail-soaked parking lot at NCAR (Valmont Drive, Boulder)

    I got a video of a brief thunderstorm SE of Loveland and SW of Greeley. It was right at that time in the evening when you can easily see distant lightning bolts. I guess the lightning wanted to go down, then up.

    This is a bowing squall line that is not producing a lot of storm reports right now. It produced quite a few wind reports earlier. It almost looks like half a hexagon.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I seem to remember that the GFS has had some problems in the summertime with dew points too high (75-80 degrees) in generally moist time periods in the Midwest. I wonder if this upgrade may improve that somehow.

    June 2019 General Discussion

    Toledo has not had a June high temp of 59 or lower since 2003. I suppose it is even possible that Thursday would have a high temperature at 12:01 AM for eastern Michigan or northern Ohio, or SW Ontario, perhaps making it seem not so bad for the all-time record books and such.
