    Good news is they don't look like they're going to settle in for any extended time over the next couple weeks. May have some decent breaks. But that also probably means more of this wet pattern

    If some of the models are to be believed over the next 10 days KIND could be bumping up to '98 (10.26") and 1875 (12.22") for the wettest June on record. Pretty impressive with none of this coming from a tropical system.

    Days like yesterday make you appreciate the power of the sun when directly overhead. While cooling down most of the day the sun finally popped out around 5 and those few hours of sunlight made a very noticeable difference, jumped about 5 degrees in an hour or so. Pretty wild pressure jumps too from 1018 down to 1005 back up to 1017 in 24-30 hours.

    If that was newer construction there shoulda been some bolts secured in the footers that the base wall plates were anchored to, not just anchored to the cinders on top of the footers. I can take out a cinder block anchor with the wives picture hanging hammer lol.

    Yeah thought the same thing. I mentioned low level flow as there was rotation, not just this one but a couple more that drifted through, because the storms seemed elevated with the most action. Low level winds were straight out of the N. even under that thing but about 1k up they were veering nicely. That entire updraft was rotating at a good clip as were several others just nothing to bring em down. Maybe if it woulda been in the mtns of WV coulda produced lol.
