    @BooneWX how have you been in the rain department? We are inundated. 

    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.

    Not here. It has never got that dry here since last fall. It's a soggy mess now. 

    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. 

  3. 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!

  4. 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. 

  5.  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.

  6. @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.

    I will believe it when I see it. 

    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.

    I'm really worried about this fall. If hurricane season is half as bad as some are saying we could see brutal flooding Ala 2004. 

    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 :fever: but they may be right this time or at least closer to correct.

  9. 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 :D.

  10. 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 :lol:. Could you imagine being mad about too much snow? Is there such a thing?

    The worst heartbreaker here(among many) was March 1, 2009 Upper Level Low. We got a dusting and literally 15 miles west and 20 miles east had 4 inches or more. It was too warm for the first part of the storm then the ULL went just too far south and we missed the deform band. That led to downsloping wind and flurries while Shelby-Hickory got hammered. 


    Another reason this was painful was because the previous 2 winters were bad. Not as bad as these last 2 though. 


    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.

    My hopes have turned to a mild damp spring that lasts until May~ish with out the killing frosts of March.  Peach crops took a pounding last year, let's hope things play out better this time around.

    I’m gonna be that guy…. Torch baby torch! Let’s knock out pollen season efficiently and get to that beautiful time of year on steamy days when you’re watching 30k ft towers break the cap in the distance and fall asleep to those long rumbles of thunder.

  13. This is off-subject so I’ll limit it to one post but if you haven’t taken time today to follow the model madness going on with the storm coming to the northeast, you’re doing yourself a disservice. They’ve had this thing shift hundreds of miles inside 36 hrs until event start. There are areas currently under a winter storm warning that went from getting a foot to maybe not even a flake in a 12 hr span. And again, this event is CLOSE! Shifts you’d possibly expect 96 hrs out occurring the day before.
