    Leaves around here are really, really pretty. Better than most years for some reason, though still nothing like New England. They'll either fall or help to break their own branches on Sunday. Lows are forecast in the low teens early Monday -wtf?? and I have not had my sprinklers blown out yet. And they can't come for a while. Grrr.....

    Some wet snowflakes mixing with the rain here in the S Metro, 40 F. Radar shows oranges and a little red over the area, probably reflecting off these. Nice rain- steady for the moment!

    New Englander myself. Can't fathom why people would not like snow. They should have stayed in [fill in Southern or Southwestern state name here]. They complain when their tires spin. The rest of us just put on the snow tires. Easy.

    Yeah, we got a sudden 0.5" from that line. A lot of it ran off because it was so heavy and fell in less than an hour. Need some less sudden rain. This morning, it's smoky and my eyes itch. No local fires I can see, must be from the Silver Creek fire and an overnight inversion.

    It's now been 30 days since there was a day with 0.1" or greater at DEN; total rain over that period has been 0.17". Even for a cactus, that's dry. They say Florence is big; perhaps if it keeps growing it will help us.

    Took a break from Florence to ponder a bit and realize that it's consistently in the low 90s this week here. Is DEN hotter than ABQ usually in September? So weird. Seems like warm, dry and dark is becoming the fall norm. Well, it's always been dark.

    I know- we had quite the time 1-4 AM with heavy rain that sounded like wind it was so heavy. Of course we're in a massive COCORAHS hole SE of town (I would join, but would be too unreliable due to time constraints). But pretty sure we had over an inch. The dog shook the whole bed having a nervous breakdown. I am tired today.

    Hope so! NWS BOU keeps talking about it but it's always 36 hrs away.
  9. Wow. Send some of that up here. 88 F today after 80 predicted. Getting real dry again. About 0.75" rain in the past month and a bit over an inch the month before that. I think that qualifies as a nonsoon. My water bill is stupid.

    Nice anvil with it, but too far SE. Was triggered by the outflow from a storm over the Springs. That's OK, we've had enough hail for a while. Could use some more rain though.

    I think this is the worst non-local smoke/haze we've had since we moved here in 2010. Reminds me of when I lived in NC where you couldn't really see the actual blue sky from July through Labor Day, and visibility averaged about 7 miles on a normal day.

    Forecasting Suggestions

    Don't know much about Reno, but I do know that the microclimates around the Bay area and really much of the CA coast, that create huge differences within the distance of a brief walk sometimes, require local knowledge and tools that are probably not found elsewhere. I sometimes see AFDs from NWS SFO/Monterey that talk about local tools for winds and fog. We have very very few CA posters in this subforum.

    With all the severe weather the past few days on the plains, we've overlooked that the western 2/3 of CO has been pretty dry again, during what looked like a monsoonish period not long ago. Hopefully that will reset over the next few days.

    Pretty nasty cell bearing down on Sterling, CO with baseball size hail and lots of rotation. Looks like a funnel cloud per chaser video. Sterling is the only town of any size in the area.
