    This storm is intense... Mother nature putting on her own 4th of July show right now.

    These torrential flash floods and mud slides are getting worse than winter in terms of having to check what roads I can use to get to work each morning... Luckily for me I've either passed before or after so no major impact. We were in the pool yesterday and all of the sudden a blast of cool air dropped the temperatures and within 5-10 minutes all hell broke lose. Nice example of gust front induced storms.

    Some more info and pictures form the Trib website: https://triblive.com/local/westmoreland/13809855-74/officials-tornado-touches-down-in-westmoreland-county Crazy how it seems so calm. That area in general (Greensburg \ Latrobe) seems to be a relative hotbed for tornado activity. There must be some orographic or other micro climate things going on.

    Looks like a hot weekend coming up... Could we take a run at 100? GFS is probably out to lunch getting that close but it's been awhile for the area if memory serves.

    Sad News... Joe Denardo has passed away. One of the best on-air weathermen ever in Pittsburgh. RIP. http://www.wtae.com/article/legendary-wtae-chief-meteorologist-joe-denardo-dies-at-87/21550800

    Yeah, a lot of water predicted by the GFS. Looks like its showing some interaction with that tropical system down in FL too. I would also guess this is fairly unusual for May? I don't follow tropical to closely unless I'm planning a vacation along the East Coast, or there is a shot at some remnants hitting us, so not sure how unusual this might actually be or how likely the GFS is just out to lunch.

    At this point I'm wondering do we look to break some records and see snow in May? Today certainly looked like winter and even managed some snow accumulation during the day. Pretty impressive for April 17th.

    Saw some pretty cool lightening around 8:15 last night lighting up the storm clouds in the distance. No big effects in my neck of the woods though, just a couple flashes and few rumbles of thunder accompanied by some moderate to briefly heavy rain. Winds seemed to be really starting to ratchet up this morning.

    Yeah, seems like its been slowly trending north, almost gets some good snow into AGC on 12z GFS, with plenty of time left for it to go further. I think these W-E type waves especially given the time of year have better chances of trending North than South, but we shall see.

    I hear ya, it looks below average for at least another 7-10 days, but even if we hit average temperatures by then that will feel really warm given mid April averages, but if we manage to get into an above average regime it will be a real shock to the system! At least this staves off grass cutting season I guess.

    They did, looks like they put us at 4in thus far for the month of April, with 56.5 for the season thus far. I usually check the climate website for this stuff, it gets updated pretty quickly most of the time. http://w2.weather.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=pbz

    Maybe some storms tonight with the frontal passage? Looks to be pretty windy too. Looped through the GFS and still not really a strong signal for any sustained Spring warmth at least in the next 7-10 days. Who knows, maybe we can hit 60 inches of snow for the season with a big storm in May!

    Hard to get a good measurement this morning, had about 1.5-2 inches on the grass, but varied wildly, some elevated surfaces were closer to 3, and nearly 4 on the top of my car, but not sure if that was somehow influenced by something else. In any case, roads were all just wet, but everything was encased in white. Going to be some really nice views shortly after sunrise.

    Heh and looking forward we might not be done after this either, pretty decent signal for something next weekend too. If so wow what a Spring lol. Still stand by my previous statement wishing this all was a month sooner.

    Not bad for April if it works out. Between I70 and PA border looks good.
