  1. Indeed, particularly west of the Beltway. Philly is about to get it though. https://www.earthcam.com/usa/pennsylvania/philadelphia/?cam=philly
  2. Looking at the satellite loops sun may be into the DC metro by midday. The Baltimore metro by the early/mid afternoon.
  3. @PrinceFrederickWx Me thinks you have a chance at breaking your all-time daily rainfall record today.
  4. Tornadoes seem to be the big story ATM.
  5. The smaller vort-max within the larger circulation now appears to be in the "due north part" of it's loop according to doppler radar.

  7. But how's your sleep though?...
  8. Mesoscale Discussion 1373 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0300 PM CDT Sat Aug 01 2020 Areas affected...northern Virginia...eastern West Virginia...much of Maryland...and the District of Columbia Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 012000Z - 012200Z Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent SUMMARY...Convection over eastern West Virginia will gradually spread eastward, posing a risk for damaging wind gusts and perhaps an isolated tornado. A WW may eventually be needed pending convective trends. DISCUSSION...Isolated convection has developed across portions of eastern West Virginia over the past hour or so, with one cell showing signs of broad/weak rotation aloft. The airmass supporting these storms has become moderately unstable, with 70s F dewpoints and 80s F surface temperatures resulting in 2000-2500 J/kg along and south of a warm front located from PIT to WAL. The cells are also in a weakly forced synoptic environment, with a mid-level trough located well west of the region. Nevertheless, weak inhibition and buoyancy in tandem with weak surface confluence has fostered initial development in eastern West Virginia. This regime should continue through the evening, with 30-40 knots of deep shear fostering organization. Damaging wind gusts will be the primary threat with this activity, although a tornado cannot be ruled out given favored cellular storm mode and potential for updraft interactions with the aforementioned warm front. Convective trends are being monitored, and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch may be needed especially if a greater concentration of convection can be achieved through nightfall. ..Cook/Bunting.. 08/01/2020
  9. SLGT shifted ENE to the Potomac river. (1300z update)
  10. Tropical tracking + Booze drinking ftw.
  11. Weather tracking is currently giving me a "beginning of September" vibe rather than the beginning of August.
  12. I know that I'm not the only one seeing this amaz- oh... yeah indeed I'm not.
  13. Other than this I don't know too much about where to get more info.
  14. @WxWatcher007 That 100+ KJ/cm^2 pocket of energy near the SC coast is not something you see all too often... let alone in July.
  15. I'm afraid that it's already too late for our friend.
  16. The Os have a historic winning season coming up. 54-6.

  18. Extremely decent storms for late January.
  19. URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 393 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1200 PM EDT Wed Jul 22 2020 The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of District Of Columbia Western and Central Maryland South Central Pennsylvania Northern and Central Virginia Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia Coastal Waters * Effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from NOON until 700 PM EDT. * Primary threats include... Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter possible SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will intensify and over the mountains of northern Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania and spread eastward this afternoon and early evening. Damaging winds and perhaps hail are expected with the more intense storms today.
  20. Yeah... It sure seems like we've not seen too many of those events this year.

  22. Merry Christmas EJ. Updated: Satellite imagery and recent satellite wind data indicate that the low pressure system located about midway between the west coast of Africa and the Lesser Antilles continues to get better organized. If current trends continue, advisories could be initiated on this system as a tropical depression later today. Regardless of development during the next couple of days, less favorable conditions should limit additional development by the weekend. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

  23. Just had a thunderstorm pop up over me this hour in Herndon. Safe to say that I've seen my high for today here.
