    Dew of 41F, guess that's a SNE winter?

    It still boggles my mind that you and Kev are two different people . It's like copy and paste responses.

    You want to go Thursday per the 12z guidance. GFS has Tuesday struggling to hit 70F, then upper 70s on Wednesday and then upper 80s on Thursday. No way you get it Tue/Wed on all guidance I saw given mid-level temps. Thursday though pops hot ahead of the FROPA.

    It feels like it should be snowing. It is frigid. 1pm and sitting in my car outside the Mountain Operations office as gusty NW winds rip sheet rain sideways down the lot. Feels like a late October nor'easter. Car says 42F...at 1pm on May 20th. Fuk this. From dews in the 60s to ambient temp in the low 40s the next day on a late May afternoon.

    May 23/24 SNE/NNE Thunder Thread

    Anyone think we should go with a more blanket summer convection thread like in the past? Or is a new thread for every summer day with t-storms the better route?

    Man more bad info. So much bad info out there. Put all guidance away, stop looking at the NWS, it's going to be great I tell ya and no one is ruining that for me. Sounds like a certain politician in here trying to sell nice weather instead of tariffs.

    What river/creek/brook/etc floods the park and ride? I know where the park and ride is off Stowe Street there but is it the waterway that follows RT 100 further north a bit across from Ben and Jerry's? I heard that thing was almost about to cross RT 100 there near Guptil Road (where the new traffic light when in) at like 7am this morning. Anyway, last night's rain almost doubled May's precipitation total here of ~5.75".

    That was the longest continuous thunder and lighting I can remember last night. Just hour after hour of it.

    Sweet shot of the storms last night from MWN Observatory. They said the storms were on the VT/NH border at the time.

    Holy crap that was some rain last night...more impressive rain event in a while obviously with these numbers. My stratus cracked over the winter and haven't gotten a new one but the half ass garden rain gauge says 2.25-2.5" but I'd estimate halfway between those values so 2.35-2.4" or so. The guy in the Stowe Lower Village had 2.53". J.Spin with 2.78" and even a 3"+ west slope of Camels Hump. Fresh tree in the river this morning, root ball and tiny green leaves so it was growing happily yesterday. No mas. Can also see some of the smaller creeks crossed RT 108 like by Topnotch Resort. It must've been mayhem in the river and feeder creeks at like 3am last night. Humid torrential rain and still high Mtn snowmelt... I think that was the final blow to skiing.  Now can finally say "Shut 'em Down" at Stowe.
