  1. I’ve only got .84 on the month and none in at least 10 days. A far cry from the foot last month. Our climate has become such a pattern of haves and have nots. It’s either flooding or a drought and no in between.
  2. Got my irrigation system installed just in time
  3. Imagine if it was all snow
  4. My goodness. Almost 2 inches of rain since 5 pm. @calculus1any hail over your way?
  5. 3.24 this week, 7.62 on the month! The lake is full of floating logs, ponds are brown and the worms are even trying to escape the saturated ground. Quite the flip from my almost rainless April.
  6. One more from this magical weekend. This was just north of Thunder Hill overlook on the parkway.
  7. My location has an absolutely uncanny ability to miss storms. I’ve really never seen anything quite like it. When everyone was getting drenched over the past few weeks, we were missing almost all of the activity.
  8. The first true severe weather day in a while. It feels like a mid-July morning so nothing will surprise me. The shear seems to be low but hopefully these cells aren’t too discrete this afternoon. The 11z HRRR shows healthy isolated supercells in the first wave but the 3k nam has everything moving in a more clustered/linear fashion. Time will tell!
  9. 3.4 in the bucket since Saturday. My yard and plants sorely needed it. I can’t think of too many times where I’ve had to roll out multiple sprinklers in the spring but it was starting to look like last September around my place.
  10. We really needed the steady rain today. I don’t think I had realized just how dry it’s been recently unless you got lucky with thunderstorms this past week. Grass was starting to go dormant and I’ve been breaking my back trying to keep up with the watering needs for new plants I added back in March.
  11. @Bucketheadis at 34 in his location and I’m at 73 and dropping. Obvious differences in elevation I know but it’s truly incredible what kind of swings you can have in climate over short distances in NC - and also the difference terrain makes with cold air advection.
  12. 1.48 here. Breezy warm day. It feels like spring. The pine trees are going to be insufferable next week.
  13. Surprised it’s so quiet in here! The GFS laid the hammer for the central mts and points north Friday. Verbatim it was a nice thumping of wet snow, 3-7 inches.
  14. You can believe it this time. We’re far enough along that even a lobe of the PV would deliver 40 and rain. Spring and early summer is always our best winter atmospheric pattern.
  15. Models showing winter coming back in a big way mid month. I’d say it’s wrong, but we know this is the time of year it’ll finally verify
  16. I have zero doubt in my mind that this will finally be the moment cold air moves from the long range to the medium and short range. Expect that pattern to persist through June. It does every single year.
  17. This hurricane season could be nuts. Sea surface temps in the MDR are comparable to what we typically see in June. I don’t doubt that the same Mets who were throwing out analogs like 2010 for this winter will be screaming “2005” for hurricane season soon but they may be right this time or at least closer to correct.
  18. For some. For others, we’ll be switching to tracking events that actually occur here, like 500 year rainfall events and 40 degree temps in May.
  19. Regardless of the winter, I’m glad this season brought us this thread! One day we’re partying in the hills again but until then, let’s keep the good vibes flowing with thunderboomer season.
  20. With things looking the way they do, I figure many on this forum will start checking out until late next fall so I just wanted to say thanks and I enjoyed the ride, even if it wasn’t a good one. We’re all nuts about meteorology and I learn more in this group than anywhere else. A special shout out to @GaWxfor the play by play this winter and here’s to hoping this is 1993 .
  21. What a fun snow event to our north tonight. The dynamics have taken me by surprise with the thundersnow and high rates for folks thinking they would get a light event. The poor mets at NWS St.Louis issued an apology for the forecast being too low compared to reality . Could you imagine being mad about too much snow? Is there such a thing?
  22. This storm and its gradient were absolutely wild. Lenoir barely getting a coating but granite falls getting half a foot is quite amazing since thats just a few miles as the crow flies.
