  1. PDS Severe Tstorm Watch with 50% tornado probabilities was issued earlier (http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/watch/ww0280.html). Has this ever been done before?
  2. Absolutely beautiful today.
  3. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md1023.html "Watch unlikely" for SW Michigan, including a portion of the moderate risk
  4. Quality thunder right now on southern edge of rain shield
  5. can someone tell me their thoughts for my area (bloomington in) wednesday? from what i can tell i think i'm too far south/west
  6. I know spring has been rough around here but for me it has at least been more interesting severe-wise than last spring. I'm about to pass the 2015 severe tstm watch total (3) on May 11th.
  7. winds today were as impressive as I've seen since moving here. Been without power for 4 hours now
  8. somewhere in the D range here I don't know what my total was because I don't keep track but we didn't have any storms with more than about 3 inches of snow. I guess climo here plays a pretty big role. Was kind of painful being missed to the south by the mid atlantic storm but it wasn't too close to me. Just kind of annoying when south IN ends up being too far north instead of too far south.
  9. Got 70 in the point for Saturday I'm ready :^)
  10. Anyone have some good severe threads we can read to pass the time? Doesn't matter to me if they busted in the end just as long as there was pretty good hype in the days prior. I just finished reading June 12 2013's thread and it got me thinking about how events that are well hyped to have some big MCS/derecho don't always seem to pan out like we plan (I guess that's true for all severe events but it seems it happens more with MCS events). Don't know if there's any actual correlation but June 3 2014 and obviously June 12 2013 came to my mind immediately. I guess we're still pretty bad at predicting storm mode? Maybe someone can offer insight or give counterexamples.
  11. not really around here. it looks like there were a few wind reports in the south. 12/23 had a widespread wind event in the ohio valley as well as a few strong tornadoes further south
  12. not trying to mandate anything since i'm just a lurker but can we talk about severe in the designated thread http://www.americanwx.com/bb/index.php/topic/47771-february-2nd-2016-severe-weather/
  13. You also know the current winter sucks when every thread has a "you know the current winter sucks when..." statement
  14. this storm is going to be so painful for me. the two big ones last year and now probably this one have missed me to the south
  15. maybe we'll have spring this year
