  1. There is no other game in town.... The countdown is on until the uber-long range fantasy land digital snow storms. But that wont start for another week. lol.
  2. So much to watch in the tropics. Fascinating actually. But is there any real shot that any of these disturbances would track to mid Atlantic and have a big impact this year (for example similar to Isabel?). Seems like everything taking aim goes OTS. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I'm in. I will watch TD10 and the bittie behind it. There is nothing else to do weather-wise other than watch this exciting Mid-Atlantic partly cloudy sky. Yawn.
  4. Been tracking 95L /TD9 since last week it seems. As I see it, invest early, go all in, watch 95L become TD9 become Humberto. Look at the first real forecast cone and see OTS solution. I feel like it's preseason for winter. As Rocky once said.... It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. This is pre season training for mid Atlantic winter storms that will never materialize. Get ready. Get in shape. Winter is coming. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

  6. Listening to Brunswick County NC Fire Dispatch on the internet. In the last 30 min, there was 1 tree down, a non emergency fire alarm, and a report of power outage. Seems like it could be worse all things considered. https://scannerradio.app/?l=NTYyNzc Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. And most importantly post some pics! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. You know the weather here is boring when you start checking Tropical Disturbance 3 on the east side of the Cabo Verde islands 3 times a day for any sign of development. tl;dr: No further development. At least the NFL starts tonight.
  9. While there is likely no current guidance for my thoughts, I cannot stop thinking that this storm will trend offshore over the next 48 hours and ultimately hook east and spare Florida. I feel like I have seen this movie before. I wouldn't bet the farm on it, but I cannot ignore what I feel in my gut. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. There's a Polar Coaster coming this winter. Can't make this up. https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/27/weather/farmers-almanac-weather-forecast-2020-wxc-trnd/index.html
  11. Its been a great night drinking at home with friends and about to go to bed but I had a great weather day today. So if you're just browsing this thread here's a random story. It's long winded because I'm a bit drunk. Went to a friend's house with my wife in Arnold MD near Annapolis and they took us out on their boat. I've been out on the Chesapeake maybe twice in my life and today was the second time. When I left Owings Mills at 11 am it felt like a typical summer day. But when we got to Arnold at noonish it just felt... Uncomfortably humid. Noticeable as in high CAPE humid. I looked at the sky and there was all sun and some cumulus out in the way distance. I commented before we left on the boat that it felt like.... Instability. Of course the three others said "what?" And I said nevermind. But I felt it in my bones. We head out at 2 pm. Now the last thing I want to do is be out in a boat with CG lightning. And I feel it in the atmosphere that it's gonna happen but it's an almost clear sky. 30 min later while near the Chesapeake Bay bridge on the boat I see a darkening haze to the north with wide open chesapeake bay visibility. I check my RadarScope app. It's a fairly isolated red and yellow shower... But pretty large surface area. Seems to be stationary. I keep an eye on it. Over next 10 min it's getting significantly darker to the north. And then I see a cloud finger emerging that gave me pause. I look again and now I see CG strikes on RadarScope and a ST Warning and Marine Warning to the north. Storm is still almost stationary on RadarScope and to my eyes. I zoom out on app and there is no other storm for 125 miles in any direction. But this storm is a lone wolf in an otherwise wide open chesapeake bay sunny sky. It's beautiful. Ok so I may not know how to Captain a boat, but I know how to be a storm spotter. This storm is growing. And Captain wants to go get gas but we don't "have to" get gas. We're heading into the now much darker sky and I see the cloud finger more pronounced and think to myself that if today were a tornado day I would know that. But severe storms can spawn rotation right? So 'is it' just a cloud finger..... Or something more? I pull up RadarScope again as my index of suspicion is growing by the minute and now on RadarScope there are lots of CG strikes and now there is purple in the cell. I look up and see a CG strike in the way distance.... The first one we see. A big one. But very far away. It was red. It was surreal. It was at that moment the storm started it's movement on RadarScope. And it was moving towards us and growing in size. Impressively rapidly. Yep. Time to go in. We do a 180 and take the 15 min ride to our friends dock. Upon arrival the sky is now deep grey and CG strikes getting closer and loud rumbling beautiful thunder. We button up boat. Head up to house with a deck in perfect view of the approaching storm. O yeah by now we are under a ST Warning and Marine Warning over our friends house. I am pacing out how long until it's truly too dangerous to stay outside and BAM a very bright flash and LOUD bang of thunder 2 or 3 seconds later. O yeah time to go inside now. 10 minutes later sheets of rain, and numerous CG strikes very close by. And then the hail starts. Pea sized hail and lots of it. I open RadarScope. It's purple over us. I zoom out. It is one tiny small storm right over us drifting south. What luck I had as a storm lover! For all those near misses to hit a jackpot. Today I was a 1 percenter. 30 min later it's sunny. All done. And that's it. But here is why it is cool. I felt that CAPE today. I knew something was up. And I was right. And to use my weather skills and skywatching skills to chart that storm and have it actually hit us head on was really lucky... For those of us that love storms. So I had to share that here cause nobody gets it but you guys. Thanks for listening. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. This was near University of Baltimore. Pretty significant hail! (not my tweet)
  13. Last night around 9:30 pm we had a respectable thunderstorm with heavy downpour over Chestnut Ridge (northern Baltimore County). Not severe by any stretch however I am taking what I can get during this week of "active weather" that was predicted last Saturday. But other than last night this week has been a fail for me. I am somewhat optimistic for today - the last day of this "pattern" until we reload next week. So maybe today - the day folks let their guard down or give up on the game - is the day we profit!
  14. It's starting to feel like winter waiting for these storms. Just sayin.
  15. I love snow as much as the next guy but this is hard to do after it was 73 degrees with a few evening CG flashes and thunder yesterday. It's 4th and long and we would need to score and get the onside kick and score again to win. Time to take a knee and run the clock out. We play again next season.
