  1. Ha that's true. I don't know I feel like all of this changes very quickly in a few weeks when ~50% of adults have had their first shot.
  2. The CDC also recommends red meat be cooked well done and not to eat runny yolks. Governors are going to reopen because they know there is no appetite for lockdowns or strict capacity limits. I was very pro restriction when we all had to do our part to slow the spread, flatten the curve, etc. But today is far different than a year ago and there will be a ton of vaccines given out in the next month. This will be with us for a long time we're going to have to live with it.
  3. Even "blue state" governors are opening stuff up quickly. Indoor dining is returning, bars are reopening, indoor gatherings are allowed with increased capacity. It makes sense now. Risk will never be zero but as we're rapidly vaccinating people and there's a lot of immunity in the population already from prior infection it's time to open up.
  4. Yeah, I think the lockdowns and mask mandates made sense at the time. Now that most people >65 have been vaccinated the rationale for keeping strict restrictions in place becomes more tenuous. The goal was to flatten the curve to prevent the health care system from collapsing and that worked. Now that the vulnerable have a growing level of protection time to open up. I still think mask mandates in public when you can't maintain distance makes sense... and it doesn't make sense to open nightclubs at 100% capacity.
  5. Dual pol showed that beautifully. Nice surge north with the warm layer in the boundary layer.
  6. The NAM is very close to something fun for interior areas on Monday.
  7. You are such a baby. Right now you're under like 5 dbz radar returns. Has your visibility dropped below 4 mile?
  8. lol yeah the high res models all had that band tickling the coast. No surprise here.
  9. You may get some sleet in a bit actually. Radar shows a pretty good surge north in the melting layer through N NJ and SE NY.
  10. Kevin finally gets his 48 hour snow event on the GFS
  11. Am I the only meteorologist who has never once pulled up the ICON?
  12. Both. I mean just sort of weak and strung out.
  13. HRRR is a dumpster fire. Time to move on to Morch.
  14. There are a few big ensemble members in there. Worth watching.
