  1. Haha. He wasn't kidding. Watched it rain several times at the college, only to have the roads up on top of the hill covered in snow.
  2. Not much love for mid-week on the 0z GFS. Next weekend, however? Guess that'll be our first chance at accumulating snow.
  3. GFS has a train of threats in fantasy range.
  4. You weren't looking at the 0z CMC, were you? More than just a few flakes.
  5. Seeing some video of a little rain/snow mix in the South Hills.
  6. Mesoscale Discussion 1762 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0606 PM CST Sun Nov 05 2017 Areas affected...extreme eastern Ohio through western Pennsylvania Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 514... Valid 060006Z - 060130Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 514 continues. SUMMARY...Line of strong to severe storms should persist until around 02Z into western PA followed by a rapid decrease in intensity. Damaging wind remains the primary threat, but a brief tornado cannot be ruled out. Additional downstream counties may be added to the watch in the Pittsburg forecast area, but an additional WW is not anticipated at this time. DISCUSSION...Early this evening a line of strong to severe storms extends along the OH/PA border moving east near 50 kt. The line is embedded within very strong wind profiles with large 0-2 km hodographs and 50+ kt effective bulk shear. Occasional bowing segments and meso-vortices continue to be observed, and the threat for damaging wind will persist next couple hours through western PA. However, surface analysis shows a rapid decrease in theta-e across central PA where temperatures are only in the 50s F. The fast line movement will outpace any boundary layer recovery associated with the southwesterly low-level jet. Therefore this activity will likely undergo a rapid decrease in intensity by 02Z as it approaches central PA. ..Dial.. 11/06/2017

  9. lol @ 18z GFS in 9 days.
  10. 0z GFS showing some pre-November wintry action for next weekend.
  11. I was already glued to the models for this to begin with. Now I guess I have to keep an eye on the local impacts, as well. Nice little 2.5-day rain event on the 12z GFS.
  12. Canadian makes landfall in NC. Mid-950s or so.
  13. There was a GFS ensemble member at 18z yesterday that put a 974mb low right over Allegheny County. I just laughed and went on my way.
