    What a stormy pattern for the lower lakes. If I hadn’t got shafted so much these last few days this might one of the stormiest periods that I’ve personally experienced in many years. Places down near Geneseo and into the fingerlakes have seen round after round of storms for days. We usually just get a line or day of storms followed by an air mass change. It’s very cool to be locked into this persistent pattern of convection where the atmosphere reloads and destabilizes on a very fast return cycle.

    It looks like it really hit its peak and elongated right over you. Nice! It’s just getting here now as a nice rain. I miss thunder though

    Nice to see a low end severe threat today. You don't see an area wide Special Weather Statement all that often from the NWS. It's hard to tell if this will pan out as we have this remnant MCS type complex still moving through with the "Front" now right on its heels and almost merging with it. I was really hoping we could get several hours of heating and sun this morning to prime the pump, oh well. Will be interested to see how this plays out but I'm thinking the Fingerlakes and Southern Tier take the brunt.

    I didn’t think there was any way this storm could miss me. Unreal. It’s like the parting of the Red Sea. West side of roc is in a moderate drought now. ☹️

    Wayne county really got blasted by some potent storms late this afternoon. I definitely did not expect that but I guess it makes sense with such an anomalous cold pool during mid August. It certainly appears like Lake Ontario aided in the storms in someway (frictional convergence, higher dew point air, etc). They were hit by several stronger cells before this loop started too! Im mad I didn’t capture it sooner. Anyone out there to verify rainfall amounts or hail?

    High Res meso models show some lake effect bands firing up overnight off Huron and Georgian Bay. Tis the season. Just about 2 months of summery weather left and then its game on. I'm already getting excited thinking about fall and the first flakes.

    Only picked up .20" yesterday. Looks like a much better chance today. The Atmosphere is conditionally unstable with some tall skinny CAPE, not much shear but pretty juicy.

    Yeah, finally got some light rain this morning. I'll see what the rain gauge has in it when I get home. Still looked like dry under some of the bigger trees though so it certainly wasnt much.

    We havent had a drop yet here at the University of Rochester. Absolutely surrounded by towering cumulus all morning and afternoon. You can't make this up. haha.

    It's starting to feel like it will never rain again in KROC. The last truly good soaker we got was on July 5th and 6th, Since then we have had less than an inch of rain total, so basically an entire month without a soaking rainfall. It's like the god damn Sahara out there! The Lake Erie pacman looks to devour everything again today.

    Could really use some rain here in the ROC. Looks like we have some hit or miss chances tomorrow and early Wednesday then dry for another 5-7 days. Great for outdoor activities, not so great for the gardens. Just need a quick inch tomorrow...... Not really complaining though as Park Ave fest is this weekend!

    Did a little digging on the Holiday Valley Snow. Seems like it was tarped off since April to save it for their mud run they held a few weeks back. I knew it was impossible for it to last on its own.

    I agree this spring felt crappy but June was only .6 degrees below normal. Warm nights really brought up our average even though daytime highs were a bit cooler.

    40 days is huge difference in time. I wouldnt be shocked at all to see snow in May and Early June. But July, I just don't buy it.

    I'm quite suspicious there is more going on with that post than they lead on. There is no way snow lasted that long without some sort of assistance (piling or shading it purposely, perhaps even using a solar blanket to reflect back the sun). If the snow had a very thick covering of debris I could see it being insulated and possibly lasting this long, but that is raw pure white snow, something smells awfully fishy to me.
