  1. aka it's La Plata'ing.
  2. Words cannot express how much I loathe the new weather.com layout.
  3. What scares me about another potential 1938 is that NE'ers now think Sandy was the nightmare scenario. I can't picture them taking the warnings seriously. In the times that I've mentioned NE hurricanes in conversations with people, they immediately jump to power outages, like that's really the worst that can happen.
  4. So would this be an outbreak from Cindy remnants or is it unrelated? I got bored tracking Cindy because she was moving too slow.
  5. I know! I hope we get a cat5 this year within good range of it to look at in full GOES-16 glory. Or even just a RI'ing cat 4 with lots of eyewall lightning captured by the GLM.
  6. inb4 we all get trolled by 2013 2.0
  7. lol of course it's headed toward La Plata.
  8. Took this picture on the way home, because the sky looked quite gust front-y to me; yet there is still nothing close to the Fredericksburg area on the radar. What gives?
  9. Whoops. Thanks!
  10. Just checking, am I watching the right stream? http://kfor.com/on-air/ios-live-streaming/
  11. Could it be possible that the debris is more from straightline winds and the spinups are just lofting it high enough to be detected on radar? Sounds weird, but TDS from spinups aren't exactly common themselves. Edit: Now that I think about it, this seems similar to the mini-outbreak in Kansas on May 19, 2012. They formed from a line and seemed very landspout-ish.
  12. One of those freaky wedges where it looks like the whole meso is on the ground. Also one of the best inflow jets I've seen on video.
  13. Another day that shows that a nightmare scenario in Dallas is a matter of when and not if.
  14. That's definitely what it looked like. I started having flashbacks to when TWC accidentally streamed dead bodies after Joplin. What was that large mangled object in the parking lot with all the damaged cars? A bus?
  15. The debris ball they're showing on NBC5 is pretty impressive.
