    May 2019 Discussion

    I was driving through that on my way back from my lovely (sarcasm) Oklahoma chase on Monday. Did wonders for my fuel economy I'm sure and almost pushed me off the road several times. Couldn't stay out there for today and tomorrow due to having to be back at work starting 3 AM tomorrow morning.

    Which it did...and largely busted as we know. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    That would be funny if it hadn't actually already happened. RIP TS/PS/CY. The weird and especially sad thing is, for those guys that wasn't their chasing style at all.

    If Monday holds serve from the 00Z suite, I suspect it will break the streak.

    Hot diggity. ...and yeah, I've never understood exactly what separates a "PDS" warning from a TORE. I would guess proximity to a populated area, but I have seen "PDS" warnings used instead even when the couplet looked to be approaching a town/city.

    If a 5/3/99-like event occurred every time it popped up as an analog on a forecast sounding, every human settlement in Oklahoma and Kansas would have been leveled several times over by now. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    It's almost all for MCS junk.

    Spring 2019 Flooding Thread

    I give up. We don't get significant tornado outbreaks anymore. Mother Nature is just trying to drown us.

    DDC/Chapman in 2016, maybe? And even those days were kind of subtle in the medium to long range. My eyes were on that Thursday when the main trough was progged to finally eject into the warm sector. However (surprise surprise) it turned into a VBV-plagued convective crapfest.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I didn't used to mind but this decade particularly the latter half has gotten me to that point. I officially hate living in Wisconsin.

    Why has this spring been such trash? I thought it would be better since we didn't have the awful late winter SSWE. Is it all down to the -NAO?

    May 8 & 9 Possible severe weather

    Yeah, I got suckered out too. No way in h*** was I going into Lie-owa despite HRRR's insistence, so poked my way down to Forreston, IL and stayed there until about 4:45 (Ironically, about the same place and time that I threw in the towel on Rochelle day in 2015, now unlike then I have a smartphone and thus access to data just about anywhere, instead of having to find open public wi-fi). Got home shortly after 6, also about the same time I got home that day. However unlike that day, I didn't pull up GR Level 3 to see a flying eagle with debris ball 10 miles from where I'd been less than 90 minutes earlier, and repeatedly slam my head into my desk.

    Down to marginal at 13Z.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    Just once during the spring I would like to feel a true tropical (like 80/75) airmass being advected in on a screaming LLJ the night before a high risk day. My money's on it's not going to be this one. Chasers trying to stay optimistic for late May but I'll believe it when I see the >200kt GTG couplets on radar. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I take back what I said. After a couple nice days looks like the upper Midwest/GL will be plunged into the same cool, overcast crap for the next 2 weeks. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Severe storms and flash flooding for May 7-13

    Same crap, different year. I no longer look forward to spring the way I once did. Always the same mantras. "EPS says Week 3 will be lit." "You don't need a synoptically evident outbreak to have a quality chase day." Yeah, yeah but we've gone like 5 going on 6 straight Mays without one in the Central US. The models tease but the atmosphere largely doesn't deliver except for the occasional storm-of-the-day event. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Spring 2019 Flooding Thread

    I was up in your neck of the woods yesterday. I found this little park in Doylestown and walked through the grass, it was like a marsh. With every step water squished out of the grass, soaked through my shoes and into my socks. The soil literally can't hold any more moisture. The Wisconsin River is very high. As bad as last August was, I am quite concerned that southern Wisconsin is primed for another flood disaster as bad as or worse than 2008 if we get into another ring-of-fire pattern with training MCS activity at point this spring.

    Looks just fine from where I'm sitting, after we get through the next few days.
  21. Teeny flakes in Madison, not sticking to pavement. WSW will bust hard unless things turn around soon, and I'm fine with that. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  22. Me too, especially since my gf's flight back from Atlanta gets in Saturday evening, and I'm supposed to pick her up from the airport. At this rate, it might be significantly delayed.

    April 2019 Discussion

    Perhaps this is better suited for banter/complaint, but these last few days of 70s (with strong thunderstorms yesterday evening!) during the day and upper 40s to 50s at night have felt awesome. The grass has greened up nicely, the crocuses are coming up, and the tree buds are really popping. So all I gotta say is... ...it better not ****-ing snow again.

    Yeah...I could not stand it looking like that outside ten days from the start of May. I am quite far enough north, thanks.
