  2. I'd guess upscale growth will be relatively rapid but it has some decent ingredients. As usual -- esp around here -- need to see how the morning plays out. Today actually looks relatively interesting so far. Maybe mapgirl will catch a tube.
  3. I think social science has led to the ref on numbers. They have been in many of their graphics for a while. We tend to always mention numbers ourselves ... a level one of five, etc. Figures I'm in Cape Cod. Enjoy the wedges.
  4. tropical season is the worst
  5. Hit squarely with two solid cells today in NW DC. Gotta be an inch from both... ground can't really hold anything more it's becoming a lake. Solid shelfie too.
  6. dew point records are tricky to come by tho worth looking into
  7. One time of year some extra clouds and a little east wind isn't the worst. Altho the forecast isn't looking too great.
  8. today would def have been a storm day without Isiais but in the wake of it and with rising heights etc it's a bit more difficult.
  9. everyone always hates on trough interaction but gotta think it helped here in the final run a lot of ways. increased venting caused intensification through landfall, then the added juice aloft plus the punch of dry air prob helped the tornado production etc. I guess without it the storm would have just run into FL or something but still.
  10. the cooler air might be the best part of the storm here.
  11. I think we're good with floating cars so we can yell that people should have turned around.
  12. I said it would hit FL or NC on Jul 30 so I'll take it. #climoing
  13. It's like a lot of events these days. The hyperfocus ratchets up the hype, inadvertently or otherwise... around here it is pretty much just a quick rainstorm but beggers can't be choosers and it could rip for a bit.
