    2020 severe season is right up there with 2020 winter.  Just punt it now as a non starter.

    I would be excited for the prospects this winter and next spring (attempt #2 at going out west) with what could be a La Nina but honestly with climate change and other factors ENSO just doesn't seem to hold the weight it once did (with exception of a strong event)...that or perhaps with just a growing data set correlations that were once thought to be correlations just aren't as strong anymore.

    About severe?

    yup...and convection in general. I mean I've had crap...CRAP. There was that one day though in late spring where I had hail on 2-3 different occasions but this is ridiculous. I was so pumped about going to OK at the end of the May but obviously with everything going on we didn't...which worked out b/c the season has been crap there too. There have been a few good events in the Northeast though...the PA derecho and the stupid CT enhanced risk in which the biggest severe threat was north and west of here and that's exactly what happened...yet we had an enhanced here AND a tornado watch...stupid. But there's nothing...nothing to look forward to, nothing exciting. Second half of summer can be fun but it's usually nocturnal events...I don't care for those that much...you can't see cloud features and I don't have the energy to stay up all night anymore for them. Our weather patterns have been nothing short of fooked. It's tiring and it needs to stop.

    Hey Paul--you can watch Twister on Netflix.  That's the way to get severe in NE.

     

    What a great day.  Not sure what we topped out at, down to 73 now..

    It's on Netflix? Sick

    2020 is not your year.

    This summer is stupid...absolutely ridiculous. Just no good CAPE in sight or no good anything...just pure 100% trash. I suppose perhaps around next Wednesday could be something...looks like perhaps an open wave which usually comes with good shear and even directional shear but we'll probably get screwed by poor timing. Lapse rates would probably be garbage anyways. I guess all we can hope for is a massive heat ridge to build in the center of the country and we can get some ridge roller potential...actually this looks to happen but we get screwed and the mid-Atlantic gets whacked. This has been complete bullshit. 

    There was that one really good event into MA...the one where we had that ridiculous enhanced risk into CT...and then saw an extension of a tornado watch into CT which was completely unwarranted and not necessary. Enhanced risk for that crap AND a tornado watch...really????

  5. Has anyone been using NBM MOS at all? Or does anyone know if it runs extended like the GFSx? From what I can find I don't see anything. But MOS is freaking awful...want to see if NBM is any better.

    Not sure how much you can complain though......this is today's SPC outlook.  It's mid-June and no organized t-storm activity in east of F'ng Idaho.

    I think they've had more marginal and slight risks up that way than we've had :lol:

    Yep, green beans, broccoli, sweet and chili peppers,  ,oregano, basil ,garlic, celery. The green beans are crazy long like a foot, my dogs love them. I get tons of them.  Nothing better than a pasta sauce with garden tomatoes,  oregano,  garlic and basil.

    I used to hate tomatoes and then something happened and I love them...especially garden tomatoes.

    Come by in September and try some ghost peppers.  They aren't that hot 

    yeah right :lol: 

    do you grow cucumbers or tomatoes? I'll eat some of those

    2003 was decent. At least where I was.

    Might be thinking of another year...there was a year where NY/PA got hammered with damaging wind events but we kinda were left out. I also think 2003 was like the only PDS tornado watch we've ever had. 


  10. This may go down as the worst severe season we've ever had. This is horrific...it sucks. Reminds me of like 2003 and 2009 where all the big events happened in NY/PA and we got screwed. Although...MA has had some decent action...can't let backyard-ism get to me but I haven't even had anything to chase ughhhhhhh

    A couple rumbles. Wiz pitching a small tent...

    I can't win. When I'm home BDL gets shafted and when i go to my girlfriends in Newtown...BDL gets hit lol. Only action I've seen so far is with that cold pool like a month ago when I got hail on 3 different occasions but so far this season SUCKS. Haven't been chasing once. My girlfriend said she is down to go chasing with me once too and try it...NEED A SETUP. HOW ******* HARD IS THAT???

    A little pop up line just to my west. Maybe a quick downpour and a rumble...then we start cooling.

    that came up nicely

    Sort of sounds like any model... if you can recognize the times they are wrong, they can be pretty damn good outside of those times.

    Good point haha...though I think it's a bit easier with the HRRR than with other models

    It's unusual, but not unprecedented. They do get pretty big June snowstorms a couple times per decade down into the 4-5k level in the northern Rockies. I recall one in June 2011 that hit them too. This storm did get snow pretty far south though....so probably rarer to get it so late into the Colorado foothills below 7k feet.

    I can certainly see how if they get snow events in June they can be pretty big...especially taping into Gulf moisture and drawing that into the system. These troughs which have been pushing into the west coast have been no joke. Even tomorrow...snow levels drop in to like 7,000 feet in like CA/UT and PAC NW. Big time fire danger too in some areas of NV. 


  15. I love the HRRR...sure it can definitely be done at times but if you're able to recognize those situations then you just disregard it. But outside of those situations it's pretty damn good

    Latest for Laramie and most snow they had in one storm all winter.

    I saw there was some place that had more than they had all winter...that was kinda shocking given how active it was out that way. I think parts of CO broke records or at least had like top 5. It's been crazy...I think first winter related watches came back in like mid-September.. 


  17. The west has been extremely fascinating. Go from torch to snow in the mountains lol. That winter storm they got in parts of WY and MT was pretty sick. How common is that for June for them?

    Sunny and warm to hot week

    Just really depends on the position of the cut-off low. If we are hot though I don't necessarily think it will be bone dry...there would be MCS potential and several opportunities for convection. Either way just zero confidence to really lean one way or another
