  1. It depends on the zoom level and who Google Earth decides to place on top if there are multiples in one area... I'll attach the overlays and you can play with it on Google Earth Pro yourselves. prb_24hsnow_ge04_f042_latest_GE.kmz americanKML.kml
  2. Who'd have ever thought moving towards the coast would be beneficial for snow? Sorry, couldn't resist! I'm sure you'll get that I-95 runner one of these years...
  3. The pressure gradient force is absolutely nuts in this. Recon is measuring 1003 mb only about 30-40 miles out from the eye which is at least 928mb. That's going to make for incredible wind speeds.
  4. In those same 10 years, Philly (where I came from) got more snow than they knew what to do with so I figured the snow tends to be where I'm not haha. It's not the true coast, but yeah I'll definitely be more interested in the tropics here than in State College.
  5. Another thing going for you guys this winter is that I'm no longer part of the region! 10 winters in State College and nothing more than a slightly above normal snowfall winter with our biggest event being 14". Now it's back to the new snow capital of the US along the I-95 corridor!
  6. Crazy windy in State College as the line passed through. My guess is 60mph or so. We lost power until just now which is almost unheard of here.
  7. This has to be one of the longest issued Severe Thunderstorm Warning message I've seen. 452 PM EDT MON MAY 1 2017 The National Weather Service in State College PA has issued a * Severe Thunderstorm Warning for... Centre County in central Pennsylvania... Clinton County in north central Pennsylvania... * Until 645 PM EDT * At 451 PM EDT, severe thunderstorms were located along a line extending from near Emporium to Prince Gallitzin State Park, moving east at 35 mph. HAZARD...60 mph wind gusts. SOURCE...Radar indicated. IMPACT...Expect damage to roofs, siding, and trees.
  8. That's what I figured. It looks nasty on radar but I guess that doesn't necessarily correlate to lightning.
  9. http://www.lightningmaps.org/ is showing considerably less lightning than I would have thought with a line like this. Are any of you experiencing good thunder/lightning?
  10. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/watch/ww0185.html Tornado watch issued. 50% prob 2+ tornadoes, 30% at least 1 EF2+
  11. 73/64 with mostly cloudy skies in State College. The breeze has picked up markedly over the last 30 minutes. If anything discreet is going to pop up ahead of the main line, this will be the time.
  12. Mesoscale Discussion 0623 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1241 PM CDT Mon May 01 2017 Areas affected...western New York through central Pennsylvania Concerning...Severe potential...Tornado Watch likely Valid 011741Z - 011845Z Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent SUMMARY...Severe storm threat with damaging wind and a few tornadoes should continue to expand eastward into western NY and central PA this afternoon. A tornado watch will likely be issued soon. DISCUSSION...Organized line of storms with embedded mesovortices and bowing segments from Lake Erie through extreme eastern OH is moving east at around 40 kt. VWP data and special Pittsburg RAOB show very favorable wind profiles for embedded supercells with large 0-1 km hodographs. Latest visible imagery also show numerous cloud breaks which will promote further destabilization of the boundary layer with 500-1000 J/kg MLCAPE this afternoon. ..Dial/Grams.. 05/01/2017 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

  13. Not ratios, QPF: EDIT: Looks like COD added precip incorrectly at hour 21 adding way more than it should be.
  14. Definitely surprised they closed PSU main campus. I would have thought they'd wait until early morning to make that call. This should be no worse than a run-of-the-mill snowstorm here. Anywho, 29/8 here and a while to go until the first flakes.
