  1. Looks like we're gonna get trained on all night...
  2. Not exactly, as you well know. But given some sunshine this maybe coulda been a big deal. As it is... Well, potential is clearly present for rotation.
  3. Lots of shear right now. Some of the updrafts coming in off the sound have clear supercellular structure, albeit very rudimentary. And yeah, I know I'm gonna get weenied for that observation, but its still true. Wish I'd taken a picture...
  4. Huh, I thought that Rockport forecast had to be a photoshop job, but it’s for real! Wow. Which brings up the question, what’s the record for continuous duration of hurricane conditions in a single place, anyone know? I was unable to find this among the usual lists of TC records using a quick Google search.
  5. sweet. be careful, night chasing is tricky
  6. 000 NOUS61 KALY 211839 FTMENX MESSAGE DATE: AUG 21 2017 18:39:37 THE KENX RADAR WILL LIKELY BE DOWN THROUGH AT LEAST FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 1ST FOR THE BULL GEAR REPLACEMENT. WE ARE WAITING FOR A ROC MAINTENANCE TEAM AND PARTS T O ARRIVE TO ASSIST LOCAL TECHNICIANS WITH THE REPAIRS. -TAW/SND yeah, poor timing to be sure
  7. Crazy motion in the clouds with this last cell over HVN, probably some wind damage somewhere east of me...
  8. Unfortunately that collapse scoured the atmosphere for miles around New Haven, and it's probably gonna kill that little sup wannabe cell coming up the coast... Might briefly spin it up a bit as the boundary hits, though...
  9. SPC just upped their tornado probs for VT/NH area to 5%, and they sound like they’re considering a tornado watch in new MD for that area. I’ll be going to central VT in a couple weeks… But not today. Situation doesn’t quite warrant a day trip. Maybe if mid-level lapse rates were better…
  10. The view from East Rock, 1st Waterbury cell, then the one south:
  11. Well that was fun… Went up to the top of East Rock and watched two nice storms, first the Waterbury cell then the one to the southwest that took over. East Rock is a perfect spot for storm watching… As it happened, both shelf clouds petered out right before they were overhead, which wasn’t a bad thing - I barely even got rained on! Will look through my lousy cell cam pics and see if there’s anything worth posting… There definitely should be, both cells were impressive from up there.
  12. I'm thinking of going after that southern storm, if it maintains rotation and radar presentation. Need to decide soon... The cell near Waterbury.
  13. Assume you meant Woodbury, but yeah... Good luck.
  14. pretty tight rotation now, could get interesting
  15. Typical nesqualline... I'm underwhelmed.
