  1. Napril Fools? Pattern and Model Discussion . . .

    Interesting - The Real-Time Lightning Map web page shows a number of strikes in CT south of Hartford, with the more recent ones ranging from New Haven to below Middletown.

    Litchfield County FTW... I hear pinging on the windows right now, and the wind is howling, but I'm too comfortable under the electric blanket to take a closer look outside.
  3. An unexpected 5.0" in the CT Litchfield Hills - in a bit of a lull right now but maybe there's a bit more coming from the west...
  4. I'm just hoping for some thunder snow later this afternoon like they apparently got in NYC earlier...
  5. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    As lights begin to flicker ominously. Still have power, but my concern level has bumped up to Defcon 3 now... I have a generator and some gas, but have not done a tune-up...
  6. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Wind really started ripping in Washington Depot, CT (Litchfield County), and snow still coming down (as well as flying horizontally). Not sure if I will be able to get an accurate total after it stops snowing, but I'll give it a try.

    New round of loud rumbling and wet stuff coming thru...

    You're a bit north of me - most of the dramatic stuff, both lightning and downpours, passed to my north. It looked intense on the radar and the lightning tracker. When the deep red area on the radar finally got here a few minutes ago (and right now) it looks like the inside of a car wash (without the soap and the rollers).

    That patch of deep purple on the radar East of Winsted (CT) looks ominous enough... "HAZARD...60 mph wind gusts and quarter size hail. " But the lightning map is pretty meh... Oh well...

    Monday was full of anticipation that did not live up to the potential - other than perhaps the rainfall amounts. Now you're getting me all excited again. Prepared for the disappointment, I am.

    You're probably in just the right place to see the heavy lightning over the Winsted area. Lightning tapered way off when the rain came (well, except for the strike that just hit about a mile south of here, that is) - and boy is it raining here...

    I just found myself inside a new Western CT severe thunderstorm warning - right in that yellow box on the radar (for the cell that's near Pawling now). About a half hour until it gets here. Looks like it's nowhere near as active as the one north of Poughkeepsie, though. The earlier one passed to my north...

    Just a few miles away from Litchfield - thunder is currently booming (but according to radar and lightning strike data and warning box, likely passing north of me, at least at this stage of the game - all bets are off later on).

    Little popup thunderstorm, part deux, unexpectedly rumbling away just West of here...
