    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    Just had about 15 seconds of hail drop out of nowhere. Few of them larger than pea.

    Good ole Wisconsin winter finally put to bed. 5 more months and we'll be searching the models for that first frost and signs of what Ole Man Winter has in store.
  3. Was bummed being out of town but happy to come home to power and a couple three inches only. Was looking forward to catching up in this thread and seeing incredible shots from down south but it looks like Chicago couldn't overcome climo. Dodged a bullet up here as conditions were primed to deliver something even more epic than 2 weeks ago's 7"

    Nice to see the 4.9" in the climate summary books. The 3.6" total report I criticized just seemed like another inaccurate guesstimate and the same ole raise an eyebrow to the quality and accuracy being put in to the records over the years at the airport.

    Congratulations and welcome! Good to hear there is an observer now. Pretty sure that hasn't been the case for many yrs prior and their accuracy/guessing on totals was atrocious.

    3.6" but 4" on the ground. Trash.

    Back home from the Bucks with a fellow board member. Definitely a storm to remember along with last weeks event it will go down as two of my top 5 most enjoyable events in a while. No pixie what so ever. Really didn't except much from today's and I think the GFS for a couple runs leading up to today had us shut out. She was blowing pretty good yet and even drifting along with filling of the ditches on the e/w road I live on. Power went out around 7:30 the wife said for a few mins. Road was plowed clear pretty good when I left at around 4:15 and it looked like this when returning at around 9:45

    Because 3/4 of an inch of cold rain is so much better than snow.
