    Hurricane Irma

    Anyone have thoughts on the potential for Mount Mitchell, NC (6684') to see frozen precip from this storm? Maybe some of the more northern high points? Here are the current conditions: http://www.nchighpeaks.org/davis/index.html At 1855 ET on 09/12 it's 43F. 3am this morning it was 36F.

    To the space faring community, something like this sounds like Kessler Syndrome: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kessler_syndrome

    That one chaser in CO on TVNweather hit the jackpot. He's getting great shots.

    I've often noticed how storms will follow the South Platte River valley and wonder if, over the long term, the rivers were shaped by a long-running weather pattern or the weather pattern is shaped by the geography.

    Saw many forms of precip today in Denver: Snow, rain, hail, and just now graupel. Lots of microclimates, mile high stadium is only a few miles away and seeing different conditions in TV.

    Funnel cloud near Colorado Springs today: http://gazette.com/funnel-cloud-spotted-west-of-colorado-springs/article/1503459 https://mobile.twitter.com/RyanJSandberg/status/356159684341792768/photo/1 Really interesting when they occur in the foothills like that. Reminds me of the tornado on Mt. Evans about a year ago.

    Here's some Sat pics. Smoke has filled in in Colorado Springs in the last hour. Smell is getting worse, hope I can keep the windows open tonight. Edit: the smoke in COS is supposedly from the fire in Walsenburg.
