    APRIL 2018 OBS

    Looks like Hawaii might have set the new 24HR rainfall record for the nation. 49.69 inches of rain in 24 hours at Waipu, Kauai. That was with that same unusual very unstable trade wind set up that gave us in the Eastern part of Oahu 6 inches of rain in 1 hour. Got some video from that beast. Wasn’t my video though. I’ll see if i can post it. Here is the link for it.

    That was terrifying. Someone ****ed up big time. Nothing like waking up to a incoming ballistic missile alert with sirens going off everywhere. This is the alert everyone in Hawaii received.

    Finally got some pictures from the family back home. So beautiful.

    Yeah. So disappointed I couldn't be there for that!

    Nice coating of snow on everything in Waycross. Lots of people's first time seeing snow. Too bad it's about to end soon. Took a while to transition over. Should end up with about 0.50 of snow at most. Definitely not the 3 inches.

    Waycross has finally transitioned over to snow.

    Awesome that’s my hometown! Give us lots of reports! And it’s looks like freezing rain might be an issue. Didn’t think Waycross would stay snow the entire time. Looks like that will be further NW near Douglas and Alma.

    30/8 in Waycross with clear skies. Already below freezing. God I wish I was there right now. Family back home says that people don’t believe any of this is going to happen.

    NWS JAX going with up to 0.50 of ice in SE GA/NE Florida, and up to 3 inches of snow on top of that. Epic winter storm for this part of the world.

    Yeah, GFS went from showing nothing, to significant ice storm for SE GA, followed by an inch or two of snow. Also models trended colder to across SE GA. Most were showing a changeover to rain. Say the NAM/EURO/RGEM have the best handle on this. EURO had actually consistently had some type of wintry precipitation for SE GA every run for the past week.

    Significant ice storm looking likely for SE GA now. 00Z GFS playing catch up and now looks like the NAM/EURO/RGEM. Winter storm watches are up now. Last winter storm watch for Waycross was February 2010. Nothing happened with that one though.

    Wow. Look at SE GA. Can't wait to see how this unfolds. NWS JAX discussion this morning was pretty good. They are discounting the GFS and going with a NAM/EURO blend. Looks like Waycross will start out as a freezing rain, before changing over to rain/snow mix.

    Awesome. Euro shows about an inch of snow for Waycross. Really rooting for this one back home.

    Haha so true. I can fly over to the big island of Hawaii and see snow. There was a winter storm warning up there a few days ago for like 2-4 inches of snow.

    You aren’t getting snow. This storm has Waycross written all over it.
