  1. Only had very heavy rain and thunder here but appears to have developed some hail and gusty winds just downstream of me.
  2. One perfect cell taking dead aim at my backyard! What a treat! Just a nice perfect summer thunderstorm.
  3. The High Res NAM does really well with warm season convection, or it has as of late.

  5. While the presence and placement of last nights storms was well forecasted, the intensity was a huge miss. Quite fascinating to see an event like this occur with very little advanced warning. The Hazardous Weather product called out Gusty Winds and heavy rain as the primary threat, and confidence seemed low from the verbiage in the discussions. We ended up with 60,000ft storms spitting golf ball size hail, winds gusting to 70mph, rain rates near 3-5"/hr, and continuous cloud to ground lightning for well over an hour in some locations. It's kind of fun to know that a storm can still catch us almost completely off-guard. We had the best snowstorm of the year the second week of November. We had nice Spring weather in March. And we just saw the most intense thunderstorms that we'll see all summer and potentially for several years happen the first week of June. We've really blown our loads early these last few seasons.
  6. Round 2 is charging across Michigan and on schedule to hit buffalo again around 8-9am. We’ll see what happens as diurnal effects usually weaken and turn these systems sharply south. Could be a hell of a 12 hour window of storms though.
  7. Lot of really interesting things in that loop. Notice how that first big cell that hits Niagara county turns a bit right and really dives straight south into the more unstable downstream air. Nocturnal storms are definitely WNY’s best chance at severe weather.
  8. I just chased it and nearly got more than I bargained for. I was able to cut off this cell. Next thing you know I was in one of the strongest hail cores I’ve seen around here in awhile. I think I sustained a few dents and chipped windshield. Daylight will tell. It went from whoa fun to holy shit really fast. Haha. Super powerful storm though. Absolutely continuous lightning.
  9. I can see the top of that storm from my patio. The lightning is absolutely continuous from this vantage. Just amazing. I can even see cloud structure. I’m 50 miles away!
  10. I saw some 65dbz returns packed with cloud to ground lighting strikes so I figured there must be a nasty hail core in there. That seems quite unusual for a nocturnal MCS
  11. Those storms are building beautifully and packed with lightning. Wish I could chase em.
  12. Yup! Pretty fun to watch. Looks like buffalo is lining up to get clobbered right now and Rochester is going to be too far east. I hate missing out on these events, they are so rare around here. The most intense lightning storms I’ve ever seen around here are always MCS’s. Buckle up buffalo, it’s looking promising for you guys
  13. I think outdoor transmission is minimal at best. Hence why spring break didn’t cause a spike and the reopening protests in Michigan didnt cause a spike.
