  1. Jan 16/17 Event Obs/Disc

    33/31/93% humidity here in mid-town B'more, very small flurries can be seen in the streetlights. Small victories!
  2. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Snow had tapered off for an hour or so in B'more City, but started coming down again as the band to the west built east a bit, getting some breeze now as well. 23/18 w/ 80% humidity currently
  3. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Light flurries just started in the Remington/Charles Village area of B'more, 27/16 w/ 64% humidity. Also saw a lightning strike alert down near Annapolis on the WeatherBug/Spark app. Good times!
  4. JAN 4th Coastal

    Anyone check out https://twitter.com/crankywxguy last few tweets? His maps showing the various moving pieces of the puzzle seem to indicate a more western track is indeed possible. Def interesting to look at what is actually happening in the atmosphere currently as opposed to all the hand wringing over the wobbles occurring during every model run (not criticizing, I do it too haha...). Thoughts on his ideas?
  5. December 11 Week Event(s)

    Was a mixed bag of precip for an hour or so, but straight small flake snow now here in Remington/Baltimore City. Side streets are covered. 27/21 currently, dew point has risen a few degrees in the past hour
  6. December 11 Week Event(s)

    Been coming down for an hour or so in Remington/Baltimore City, side streets covered quickly, starting to accumulate on the main through roads. 27/26 currently

  8. 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Discussion Thread III

    General question about the initialization pressure used by the models, seems like the starting point is higher than what is actually being measured by the flights into the hurricane. How does that affect the results the models are coming up with? Thanks in advance!
  9. July 2016 Obs/Disc

    Whoa! That's pretty incredible! Just searched to see if any more info was avail about the storm and found a link to a NWS report about it, in .pdf form, has scans of the typed pages: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/assessments/pdfs/Flash Flood Baltimore MD August 1971.pdf
  10. Spring severe weather chatter

    FWIW, DT is bringing up the possibility of a derecho event on Saturday... https://m.facebook.com/WxRisk/photos/a.148807335166533.25889.129478830432717/1055529864494271/?type=3&source=48&__tn__=E
  11. June 2016 Obs/Disc

    Weird, radar says the 'storm' is right over us, but barely even getting a light drizzle. I guess getting pretty much virga'd in June is good practice for the winter haha
  12. June 2016 Obs/Disc

    Winds have been really gusty for about 30 mins, line of storms not quite here yet, but already lost power in Hampden/Baltimore
  13. Spring severe weather chatter

  14. President's Day Storm Obs & Nowcasting

    Though this graphic is from a NWS radar in Puerto Rico, it generally should help to explain why, due to distance from Sterling's radar, the presentation will differ from the ground truth in your area.Obs: snowed a bit overnight, awoke to cartops, grass, and street covered, been snowing steadily again the past couple of hours, temp bouncing from 22° to 23° then back again, not looking forward to the skating rink due to arrive later this eve since I reside on a rather steep hill. Good times!
  15. Jan 22-24 blizzard obs, tracking, nowcasting #2

    Coming down pretty well here in Hampden/Baltimore and winds picking up after a brief period of sleet a lil over an hour ago following the thundersnow, gonna crack a beer here in a bit and go take some snowfall measurements. Cheers!
