    Need a lot more than an inch and a half of rain over a two week period in mid summer to help the dryness for more than a day or two

    2016 Spring/Summer Banter, Complaint, Whining Thread

    Worst type of weather today hot and muggy with almost zero chance of storms.

    May 2016 General Discussion.

    Been watching a nice lightning display for the past hour and a half first just north of me and now south. Nice and isolated for the first hour to really get to see the whole tower lighting up against a clear backdrop vs the usual mcs blob. Just wished it would have rained imby for the garden.

    I'm off work til mid June because if surgery but I can still drive. I'm going to be pretty disappointed if there isn't any locally to go look at in that timeframe. Hell at this point I'll take just some thunderstorms period let alone SVR or TOR

    March 23-24 System

    Saved by a degree here. Temp at 32 with heavy rain too heavy for any freezing. About 2/10 of an inch of ice with a few branches and a bigger limb here and there down. It could have been a lot worse with just a degree or two difference

    About two inches here snow slowing down. Now the biggest question how much freezing rain occurs and will the nam be close to reality with amounts.

    March 23-24 System

    Was just south of here by about 35-45 miles I think we ended up with a few inches of snow and some mix nothing to noteworthy. Gem has little to no freezing rain anywhere in the area but it also has the front more ne to sw oriented vs east to west so it allows more of the area to warm up. Maybe its just a feeling but with any of these early spring setups I always look for the colder solution to be the right way to go.

    Yeah.it would be a disaster around here if the that comes to pass.

    But in the end most of the watch would be justified and upgraded based on the freezing rain amounts the nam is putting out.

    Nothing to really add except durning the the April 03 ice storm forecasted temps here were in the low 70s only two days before our 3/4,inch of ice. Just a thought

    Potential major winter storm - Feb 24-25 PART II

    around 8-10 here, compacting and blowing made it pretty hard to get a good number. the most interesting this was a wind turbine broke during the storm yesterday about 12 miles west of here. My guess is the weight of the snow on the blades most of put too much strain on it, never seen one break before, there have been a few that have lost single blades.

    November 6th Rain/Wind/Severe Event

    got power back, that was a fun morning yesterday, I have no doubts there was a 4th tornado that hit the east side of bad axe near me also. Roughly 50 yards north of my house is a swath of damage about 30-50 yards wide that runs about 3/4 of a mile west to east. In it trees were snapped and uprooted, a shed was destroyed, my neighbor's garage was pushed off its foundation, and a large fuel tank was rolled. I'm about 1/2 mile north of the airports 73mph reading, between me and the airport there isn't any damage, most of the town has none outside this path and the confirmed tornado.

    August 1st-7th Severe Weather Threat

    a few shots from sunday, its hard to see in the last shot, but circled is one of several gust-nados over the water along the gustfront

    August 1st-7th Severe Weather Threat

    Roof off a school, semis flipped, and some buildings destroyed in owendale mi about 15 miles WSW of me. Trees down all along the Saginaw bay shoreline, a state park was hit really hard and had lots of campers at the time. Got to see what you would have to call gust-spouts as the second line of storms was coming on shore, a nice display of 3 swirling on the lake along the leading edge of the gustfront before 60mph blasted on shore. Thousands without power in my county, thankfully the worst weather at my house was some 40mph gusts and nickel hail, worse on all sides n, s, e, and west.

    June 22-23 Severe Weather Outbreak

    sanilac a 20 mile long EF1. I drove the path myself today before the statement and pretty much thought the same thing as far as how strong. lots of tree damage and barns/outbuildings. Some homes took direct hits but just minor damage. One thing interesting is going back to the radar and warning from last night when they called the tornado confirmed over Deckerville it was nearly two miles south of that location. Could have been a issue had it been the other way around saying it was north or south of the town and instead it gets hit direct. Kinda bummed it didn't happen earlier in the day as the areas hit in sanilac county are in fact very open for Michigan and flat and would have been good for chasing but at the same time it likely was rain wrapped so I'm not quite as disappointed as I could be for missing it.l

    I watched it go from my backyard, impressive growth and nice striations as it moved SE away, wish I would have jumped on it as I see its showing some rotation right now.
