    .10 inches so far all in sprinkles. Sidewalks are drying up faster than it falls. Hopefully some of that southern band can make it here. It's a desert. Don't usually see my yard cracking until August.

    2018 Short to Medium Range Severe Thread

    Yes, this stubborn pattern has got to go. If we can get some decent shear tomorrow maybe we can get something to sneak in before you leave! Good luck to you. Hope you'll still post your thoughts around here from time to time. Always enjoyed your insight!

  5. Well Ryan said google it lol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Arabian_Peninsula_tropical_cyclones That would be an amazing sight especially just after landfall. I wonder if there is plant/animal(not necessarily multi cell) life in the area that lays dormant until such an event happens.
  6. Been the curse all Spring if Spring is what you want to call it lol.
  7. What is this cold liquidy substance falling from the sky? I think it's an alien invasion or its been so long I can't remember! The whishy washy front is right over us. I was 2 miles to my south at friends and his thermometer said it was 74 degrees. Drove home 2 miles north not 5minutes later and it was 61. You could tell the marked difference in the air mass, dews, temps etc. Pretty freaky. Only in the Midwest lol.

    'Tis the season, but no one wants it

    Also early and late season development will occasionally occur along the SE coast from J'ville to Myrtle beach along stalled fronts and even sometimes from a strong MCS moving out over the gulf stream.

    /\ Yep, when it finally warmed up no rain. Its destroyed the mushroom season, worst I've ever seen. Hoping for a pop up decent soaking today, might get one more chance if we get some precip. It's been muggy as hell the last few days.

    Well it certainly didn't quite pan out to what would be expected of a PDS watch (I guess unless you were directly affected).

    /\Nice! When you first get a good thunder pinger it's great. When you get pingered year after year not so great lol. Enjoy the kitchen sink! Loves me some Haywood county. Miss slinging the dogs around in the back of the SUV coming in on 276. Had a little cabin up around Cataloochee. Miss the sounds of the Elk in the evening and my "very" occasional run ins with Popcorn many many years ago.
