    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    That's actually from a different system to east of the one that has been giving us fantasy hits. This GFS run completely dropped development of our fantasy hit. Flippity floppiting a dippery doppering still going on at this range of course.

    This is GeorgeBM reporting live from Herndon, VA. The winds are starting to absolutely rip! I've experienced a few wind gusts all the way up into the 15-20mph range. If this keeps up a dead leaf or two may be ripped off of the trees around me and smash into the ground doing significant damage to the photosynthesis of the grass blades underneath! ETA: Looking outside there is already a dead leaf that I can see IMFY. Only 30% of the sky is clear with translucent sunshine shining through the high clouds right now. I hear that there may even be a brief sprinkle in a few spots?! I'm in fear for my life.

    It was a strange wavy/jiggly feeling like adrenaline mixed with vodka and corona shaking it's way through my body... almost as if an anniversary of a wavy/jiggly event hit me.

    There was mention of a 59mph wind gust in Smithsburg in an earlier severe thunderstorm warning issued by the NWS in Sterling, VA.
  13. 1630z update put us in a SLGT risk for today. ...Northern VA and vicinity this afternoon... A small thunderstorm cluster and diffuse MCV will move eastward from the eastern WV Panhandle across northern VA/MD this afternoon. Surface heating in advance of this minor wave will contribute to moderate buoyancy (MLCAPE near 2000 J/kg), and some loose clustering of storms is expected this afternoon. Steep low-level lapse rates and DCAPE near 1000 J/kg will favor occasional downbursts with some potential for wind damage.

    Were those the standard 16.9oz bottles? If so, then that's quite a bit of fluid downed in half a day.
