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

  1. 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.
  2. I saw at least two signs as they approached the intersection that warned of the stop sign. That was so easily preventable.
  3. This might be key going forward. I'm hoping one of these systems can be a sacrificial lamb and get the moisture flowing without sweeping it back out in its wake.
  4. The upcoming period should be rather active, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a decent event come from it at some point. With that being said, I wouldn't get into too many details with the system next week. It has potential, but it also has moisture concerns written all over it. If we get into a period of somewhat prolonged western troughing then I wouldnt mind having that first system prime the moisture pump for something bigger to follow it.
  5. The HRRR is a bit off today. It never has it getting above 51 here, but we're already up to 55 with no sun so far.
  6. Agreed. Just a heads up to Anti tornado, we have a Medium/Long range thread and a Short/Medium range severe thread which is where this type of stuff should go. If we get close to an event and it looks worthwhile for a separate thread then that can happen in the days leading up to it.
  7. I think 5/24/11 had some VBV going on and it was still able to produce several sig tors. I know that day was somewhat messy which may be VBV related, but it still produced.
  8. Yes, that was an issue last year on a few occasions, and VBV was more of a symptom of a bigger problem. A system like the 4/26 one was doomed from the start, but VBV took the blame. This isn't a situation like that at all.
  9. Out of all my concerns with this set up, VBV is at the bottom of the list. I've heard this several times now and I get this feeling that people are overly obsessed with it after 4/26 last year.
  10. If we aren't going to get a big dog then I'll take this every time. Screw cold and suppressed.
  11. A few of those certainly point towards the Ohio Valley for Wednesday.
  12. That would be an interesting event to say the least.
  13. Some people just want to be able to say that they called something first. I don't like the in your face, we're better than you attitude. That was on full display when "organic forecasting" was all the rage with them a while back. Long range forecasting is tough so I wish some people were a bit humble whether it verifies or not, thats my issue. We'll see how November pans out, but it might be a while before we see any sustained cold so I'm hesitant to buy into any calls for some huge flip.
  14. Those Bamwx guys give me a headache at times. They were calling for pattern flips in late October, then early November, then mid November, and now late November. They will keep at it until something sticks.
  15. I'm torn on this one. I'm going to Pearl Jam @Wrigley on Saturday so I'd rather avoid any rain/severe. I'm hoping for the faster timing so that everything is through the area by late evening.
