  1. Early Winter Banter, Observations & General Discussion 2017

    Yep, my temp started to rise at 9 pm. Now up to 45, after hitting around 35 earlier in the evening.
  2. Convective showers with grauple and/or small hail Thursday?

    At around 6:30pm, driving towards Brockton Mass, from Stoughton I encountered a sharp shower. It started as a few heavy raindrops and quickly became a downpour. The wind was gusting maybe to 20-25 mph. Following the gust, I encountered a weather phenomenon that is rare. A mixture of hail and graupel. I would say the first burst near the Avon fire station was mostly graupel. However, a second burst near the Brockton city limits was hail. This would be my first-day seeing hail since the morning storms on 6/1/11.
  3. Sunday's Screaming Southeaster

    Hey, the lights are on! Well, that was one heck of a storm. I think I had gusts to near 50 mph. It sounded a lot worse, however. I spent the night listening to noaa weather radio and am dxing (listening for far away radio stations.) You know a storm is bad when its the lead story on a Chicago radio station.
  4. Fall Banter & General Discussion/Observations

    Getting dark, heavy rain inbound
  5. Fall Banter & General Discussion/Observations

  6. Tropical Season 2017

    Oh wow, thank god it's still like 10 days out.
  7. Convective Thread

    That rotation is rather nice. It has held on for several scans now.
  8. Summer Banter & General Discussion/Observations

    Lots of low clouds when I was driving home, looked downright stormy.
  9. Summer Banter & General Discussion/Observations

    Yes, most new tv has what is known as clear QAM tuner for digital and HD cable stations. However, Comcast encrypts all but the locals so you are required to pay for box rental and an HD access fee for non-broadcast channels. It is entirely a load of crap Comcast sells. And for over the air broadcasts things are soon going to get tricky. The FCC has sold off UHF stations 53-69 to use for cellphones and other devices. The fcc also had a buy back scheme allowing broadcasters to sell spectrum width for cash. The end result could be co-channel interference and poor reception. Not to mention the lack of bandwidth per channel causing poor HD picture.
  10. May 10th-11th Severe Threats

    Not to derail this thread, but a few words on the storm chasing stuff. 1.I have seen OKC tv station chasers on the air going the wrong way to get to the top of the hill, pass several do not enter signs, why should that be allowed? (This was KWTV 5/9/16) I know it is important that they get the live video, I know that viewer will react and take shelter when the see the storm but it needs to stop. 2. I have never chased, but if a storm is moving at say 50mph do you need to do 100+mph on a country road? Could you not just go 50 and stay about a mile behind the circulation?
  11. May 10th-11th Severe Threats

    http://www.texomashomepage.com/live-stream They have a report of a "ground circulation" under a wall cloud, about 5mi south of Hollister, OK.
  12. Model Mehham

    Yeah, I remember hearing a tv met say that the end of May should trend warmer, followed by going back to near normal for early June.
  13. Spring Banter & General Discussion/Observations

    Nice thunderstorm, not bad for April.
  14. April 1-3 Severe Threat

    One would hope, but it is a very small market. Storm still looking strong, this could be bad if people are not aware.
  15. April 1-3 Severe Threat
