  1. Okay that's literally the spot where I saw the swirl/ funnel that I estimated 2000ft off the ground in yesterday's post.
  2. Ignore the troll. This isn't the plains, so one tornado isn't a bust. I was impressed just to see supercells with a strong hook.
  3. Saw rotation in the clouds as the storm went over Columbia. Guessing it was 2000ft off the ground.
  4. Looks like whatever couplet is headed down 70 towards Ellicott City
  5. Latest Recon Pass 1003mb 45kt. Not a cane . Was fun while it lasted.
  6. It is moving WNW @ 29mph, which is fast for this latitude. Would explain the 50kt difference in windspeed across the eyewall. HWRF is developing a small cat4 between Jamaica and Cuba. Of course this is highly land interaction dependent.
  7. One of the most lopsided hurricanes I've seen.
  8. Raining hard with lots of thunder here in Columbia. Looks south of Ellicott city so far thankfully. Going to be ugly From BWI to College Park. This stuff ain't moving.
  9. Convective setups almost always verify southeast of modeled. Some by a little and some by a lot. Any sort of linear mode or convective blob quickly inoculates most of the potential for the NW part of the high risk area. East coast snowstorms are the opposite, They almost always end up NW of modeled. Some by a little and some by a lot.
  10. Tried to eat outside cause it was so warm. Very bad idea.
  11. I'd watch the cell behind it closely in downtown ATL. It's moving over the same feeder band.
  12. AL and N GA it looks like. Linear or blob mode over MS and NW AL.
  13. Didn't they already lose power for like a month in central MS?
  14. As a result of model errors canceling themselves out. It's happens sometimes with east coast systems also.
  15. Models were 5-6" too high with the snow yesterday and about 3-5" too low today. Looks like they overestimated the SE flow regime and underestimated the N flow regime on the south side of the CCB. Heavy snow started right as the 700mb winds started cranking out of the north. The storm did not really track further north than predicted. Palmer divide was always going to be the southern cutoff.
