    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    Hmm, that may explain the itchy arms after the last couple of weeks of yard care.

    Interesting meso on the tail end of that line in eastern IA. I'd hazard a guess it's tied to the outflow from the previous line to the NE.

    Summer 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    I drove a few of those stakes into the ground around it (per the local nursery) and I planned to throw some compost down when I winterize all my plants in a couple months. Hopefully everything takes off nicely in the spring.

    I mean I don't think it counts if I only lived through Scooter running naked through the streets does it? I could add the 10/18/09 snow at Foxboro coupled with the 59-0 thrashing of Tennessee.

    My poor maple is one tough SOB. Maybe it's not bugs or disease after all though, the nursery is wondering if the contractor buried it too deep and that's what killed the crown.

    SNE "Tropical" Season Discussion 2019

    It's true that every admin turns over the majority of political appointees to align with their ideology. I have no qualms about that. What I have noticed lately though is that a historically non-partisan, science agency (NOAA) seems to be increasingly run by politcos who don't have the larger view in mind as they make decisions. Ideally NOAA outlasts the Trump administration, so senior leadership needs to think beyond just 4 or 8 years. That's why I'm upset about the recent NOAA statement. A short term "win" against the NWS (which is crazy because nobody from the NWS was against anything/anyone in the first place), is a long term "loss" for people who rely on trusted weather forecasts.

    2.6 billion or so. There were trees down over roughly a third of all of New England.

    Some of the RGB satellite products will also show high ozone concentration air in that zone too.

    Yes, and often you will see Cu develop on the nose of the jet as the increased convergence near the surface forces upward motion.

    Definitely has that look.

    I'm pretty comfortable with Bob, 7/23/08 RI tornado, and Feb '13 blizzard. While I missed the best parts of the storms October 2011 and Sandy for the shear anomaly were pretty cool.

    That's honestly what the bulk of the regional rain is going to be. Tropical moisture being drawn into the approaching shortwave. The main TC shield rain is going to whiff everyone but James.

    I cut our QPF in half on the evening update. LavaRock threw his remote through the TV.

    Tolland, ORH, and PWM all have the same chance for tropical storm force winds as Alabama did.
