    Huh, I expected the Rocky Mountains would be a little rockier then this.

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    My power has gone out twice, but came back on quickly both times. The snow falling off trees onto my roof is making a nice thud.

    I just heard some thunder here.

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    It just changed over to snow here. I'm about 6 miles NW of ORD.

    I can only hope that run will verify. This is setting up nicely for my area.

    The 0z HRRR is a great look for Cyclone. Also, it does seem to push back the onset of precipitation around here which could make for a very bad Monday morning rush hour.

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    This might be a close call for me. I would be pretty bummed to miss a Sunday snowstorm by a few dozen miles.

    12z Euro would be beautiful for my area. I'm not quite sold that this won't end up a bit NW of here, but I like how it looks right now.

    Central/Western Medium-Long Range Discussion

    I'm not sure that I'd go with ideal at this point. We're still a week out so we have plenty of time before we should get too excited.

    Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    This is way out in fantasy land. It would be a huge waste of time to even consider low placement at this range. I would just stick with ensembles and be happy that we have some support for storm potential coming up. Anything other than that, too early.

    November 5th, 2017 Severe Weather Event

    I agree with Hoosier here and don't think this will be a huge issue. Also, modeled cloud cover at this point isn't overly reliable. Since we are talking about 11/17, that was a day that ended up clearing out a bit more than originally thought. It wasn't necessary, but it certainly aided in even better instability.

    2017 Short/Medium Range Severe Thread

    I believe Andy was referring to the potential coming up later next week and beyond, not the threat for this weekend. That does look like a nice Pac jet coming in. It should be an interesting time period to follow severe wise.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    I really don't know all that much about tropics, but how does the HWRF handle things compared to GFS/Euro? It was south a while before the other models corrected that way and it hasn't changed so I've been putting a bit more stock in its solution. It goes right across Cuba.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    I think people might be discounting the idea that this landfalls in Cuba and gets significantly weakened before any potential US impacts.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    HWRF has Irma going right across Cuba. It's been on the southern end of model guidance for a while so I'm definitely keeping an eye on how it evolves. That would be bad news for Cuba, but definitely good news for the US. It also seems to be pretty far west before it makes any turn, but the model only goes to 126hr so maybe it would soon thereafter

    Storm Chasers Killed in Texas

    Something about this just kind of rubs me the wrong way. People have to think about others on the road because getting some damn video or seeing a storm isn't worth killing someone else or yourself over. I feel so bad for Corbin and his family.
