  1. Took a socially distant camping trip to finish some writing work to the CO, UT, and NM Rockies. https://imgur.com/a/E4bDAlg Some low humidity and cool night vides to help get through the humidity these days
  2. Hopefully we get a small taste of it soon. Really hoping Isaias can help pull a trough through for dewpoint relief. It's like walking out into a swimming pool when I go outside, lol
  3. Hail on LeConte and 38 degrees: https://www.facebook.com/LeConteLodge/photos/pb.10150118008000724.-2207520000../10164210396465724/?type=3&theater
  4. I was just referring to this week, lol. Sorry, probably could have phrased that better. I can't take any more freezes. We had a fire going all day last Saturday, (I think...) I was watching the radar and satellite today and noticed some storms over the upper plateau that looked terrain based. MRX mentioned a wave helping too: They even made a lil outflow boundary into KY
  5. Freezes and snow in Frozen Head to terrain based storms on the upper plateau in a week. woot woot!
  6. Same situation here. We hit 31 at about 6 AM, but when I looked out everything was still wet. About an hour later a nice thin crust of ice. We covered everything with some bed sheets and that seems to have done the trick.
  7. It completely died before it made it to my place in Morgan County; I didn't even see a drop of rain. Some nice wind gusts as what was left came through, but that was it.
  8. This convective system looks pretty healthy to me, compared to the CAMs anyway: Good and sunny upstream too, between it and me, although beyond that I'm not too good at ready the mesoscale analysis pages for severe/ strong storm parameters. To me it looks like it will make a nice charge Paris -> Nashville -> Crossville -> Knoxville
  9. I know. I wish I could! I would appreciate even the cold and snow out there, if it meant things were back to normal. I'm sure now that there is a nice ridge over the SW, next year will be troughs again, lol. Some of my friends and I are going to try to do our own SW Trip in July, even though the college's trip is cancelled. We usually go through OK, but I want to see KS more, so will be heading through its underbelly. Like a Fayetteville, AR (friend lives there) to Wichita to Dodge City to Pueblo type route. OBS today = Pollen of Doom + some wind that reminds me of N Arizona. I don't know how things are down in the valley, but it has been rough with some wind (very minor) damage on the plateau
  10. Like y'all have been saying, it's been a "all day fire" kind of day up here in the plateau. Even though my usual trip to the SW is cancelled, today reminds me of some of the spring days above 6000' in the Southwest. Normally I'd be over it at this date, but the wood smoke smell makes it worth it!
  11. Got some pea sized hail with this line as it is coming through Morgan County
  12. That plateau one is about to hammer me. Looks like it was bowing out a bit the last few NEXRAD frames
