  1. Big drops, little wind at least over here in Falls Church. Only lost about two degrees. 68.0
  2. Not in the same way. The synoptic winds stayed elevated here. Any storms we get could mix down good winds, but that will be only in a scattered sense. The post-frontal wind should be breezy, but not anything special.
  3. 66.8 and steadily rising here. The NAM and Euro really busted on getting the winds to the surface this morning. I think the Icon was in better shape regarding that aspect.

  5. Not sure where LWX's is, but here is Blacksburg:
  6. No kidding. I've been refreshing the Wyoming sounding site for a while now like an idiot because I forgot about the time change. Will be interesting to see IAD and Roanoke's.
  7. HRRR is handling the winds, and therefore the boundary layer, much better than the NAM to this point. Almost nothing has made it to the surface yet around DC. DCA's highest gust this morning is 23mph. Even the HRRR shows the gusts picking up by 10-11am, though, as we destabilize. ~1.6" so far here.
  8. Yup. Everyone should be charging their phones tonight.
  9. 00z HRRR suggesting some isolated severe wind segments in the initial line that goes through early morning. 75+ mph
  10. No, this is an unusual wind setup for us. We get this serious southerly low level jet sometimes, but we generally have a boundary layer that prevents it from getting to the surface. This time there is all sorts of convection and the models think we’ll get it. Even the 18z HRRR which looks relatively unimpressive reflectivity-wise, gets gusts to ~60 mph.
  11. Yeah. What I’m assuming is that the euro and NAM are mixing down the big wind aloft during the line that comes through mid-to-late morning. So, not widespread and constant like March 2018. The euro then jacks up the CAPE following that line and has some semblance of storms in the early afternoon hours, but while the parameters are great, none of the models are throwing out any impressive storm signatures. Not sure why that is.
  12. 12z euro still holds onto the widespread 60-70 mph gusts.
  13. The 3km NAM is so convoluted. You’ve got the warm front showers overnight, effectively ending by 8am. Then we get the leftover line of storms from MS/TN late morning. And after that the parameters peak and we got more storms firing early afternoon. That is a lot going on.
  14. The 00z NAM sounding for 18z Monday has a PDS Tornado classification per Dupage.
  15. Going to be a nice one today. Low 60s, slight breeze. 50.5 after a low of 37.6
  16. The Nest is in range now. The sim radar isn’t that interesting, probably because there are showers out front almost until initiation. However, the wind fields/sounding is wild. Wouldn’t take much to mix down (or spin up) something fun.
  17. 18z NAM had 70kt+ winds at 900mb on Monday morning. That is really windy, really close to the surface.
  18. Flurries. Top-10 winter event!
  19. Might get a pre-midnight low tonight!
  20. I went grocery shopping this afternoon. Between Giant and Safeway I was able to get everything on my list except yeast. Fleishmann's really has cornered that market and that is the only thing that has been absent every time. In my experience so far, Target and BJs have been re-upping the TP supply more often. I haven't seen any of that in the grocery stores.
