    Fall 2018 Complaint/Banter Thread

    With the s**t weather I'm having right now, I favor whatever gives me the most sunshine. I'm already counting down til Spring because this loathsome dunghole 7 day forecast has very little sunlight and a whole lotta the other! Draining is what I'd call it. Its gotten me to appreciate my beach Thanksgiving even more. In-between sucks, if its going to be dreary and depressing I rather get what Calgary just had with 40-60 cm of snow dumping or record shattering heat. I'd choose the latter though! Yet again this October is shaping up to be a terrible one (below average temperatures). It seems the past 6 years is on repeat mode having the same months having the same anomalies. November has been warm. The Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend heat was insanely great (even saw a tower with a well-defined anvil) and I made sure to absorb all of its gloriousiness before the turdstorm came rushing in.

    Major Hurricane Michael

    Coincidentally and ironically pretty much at the same time you wrote that I was thinking that the most unlikely thing to happen with Michael is for it to develop a pinhole eye (just a random thought). I consider a pinhole to be smaller and of course stable so this is in jest. Any shots of that intense lightning on IR?

    October 2018 General Discussion

    My overnight low is forecast to be 72 with a humidex of 80...that's something since this weekend was freezing cold and had temps barely above 8ºC or the mid 40s. Its doing the exact opposite of what is typical of a day-night temp change - as morning comes it'll get colder and then be coldest during the afternoon tomorrow. Early this afternoon I had a heavy downpour that lasted 20-30 minutes and dark skies (overcast) beforehand. TWN had us 2 days prior for today at partly sunny with 20ºC high...

    Some of the best news I've come across this month! Interestingly I had the exact same phrase before I read Michael's "good news to start the day!" line.

    Raydar.ca has now been down for 3 weeks. I have no source for quality radar here now. Its either a pay-for tool or a Interactive java/flash radar that is worth anything.

    Spring/Summer 2018 Banter and Complaint Office

    Good breakdown of this trend, I enjoyed it. Its the new normal as its happening here as well and we have far less development in rural ON than ORD.

    Today was amazing, top shelf for sure. The most pleasant day of this month. For whatever reason it smelled really good outside and a few noticed that. Maybe its because we're getting to that time of the year where heat and heatwaves produce incredible aromas outdoors. I'm looking forward to those hot days later on . This last weekend was absolutely garbage, far too chilly and dank. Ruins the mood plus its uncomfortable. Despite being drenched in sweat at times during the hot parts of summer I wish for that over last Saturday's offerings. I then look at PHX's 40-41ºC every day this week with full sun and wish it were so...to say I admire that climate would be a huge understatement.
  8. Florence's SSD floater page loaded a day old image for AVN when I refreshed it a few minutes ago. Works now.
  9. For some reason I found this to be funny. I didn't once think that Florence was going to make landfall as a CAT4/5 however I agreed with the severity outlined from the water impact it will have. The only time I'll ever believe that a CAT4+ is going to make landfall on the US mainland is if its literally 2-3 hours away from landfall at said intensity. How it stalls will determine if its the costliest hurricane in SE history.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    I was curious to know if a hurricane has ever hit a spot either directly or indirectly that shared its name? If not a hurricane, than any named tropical cyclone?

    Main K-W weather station got to 32.3ºC today which broke the old record by 0.1ºC! You can really feel the heat built up this evening, torrid. All that potential energy the atmosphere had was wasted yesterday evening with just some rain showers and nothing else as the cold front came through. I expected no less. I'm sitting at a staggeringly low 3 thunderstorms total so far this year.

    With a few minutes left this August and essentially the core of summer, I'd give it a pretty good grade. Nice and hot, but more clouds and cloudy days than the first part of summer here. The no thunderstorm streak was broken on midnight of the 29th with two storms in 3 hours.

    Hurricane Lane impacts Hawaii

    That was hard to read through, cringing the whole way and then what sealed it was the ever annoying "We have dodged a huge, huge bullet" line...ugh!! That utterly stupid cliche triggers me each time. I read your post here days ago explaining what would happen to Lane and what did transpire. A senior military meteorologist said this? Doubtful...

    Hurricane Lane impacts Hawaii

    I would've never believed it had someone set this scenario up for me, can't make this up! I do.

    That was my reaction to finding raydar.ca still isn't working after 3 days. I need that thing . TWN once again pulled a bust out with their hyping of severe weather today and despite the morning showers kept the absurd idea alive that powerful storms with an isolated tornado was possible: Link: https://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/southern-ontario-fall-like-soaking-rain-storm-ahead-late-august-look-ahead/109648/ This is getting ridiculous and users are getting fed up with TWN. Obviously I didn't think for a second that I would have a thunderstorm IMBY but the rains I "bought". Turns out I received far less than forecast. I'm still waiting for this big pattern change they kept yapping about endlessly last month and then again sometime early this month. Oops another heatwave instead!
