    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    May through mid-July for Indiana, at least in terms of general severe weather. This loop is pretty good to get an idea of trends throughout the year: https://www.spc.noaa.gov/new/SVRclimo/climo.php?parm=anySvr

    April 10-12 Winter Storm

    Bullpen has been appalling lol. For real though I hope this goes north. Would be nice to get some storms out of this.

    1974 Super Outbreak

    Maybe a dumb question, but is there any chance that there were a lot more tornadoes that occurred on that day than we know of? Since it was back in the 1970s? Especially since 30 violent tornadoes occurred out of 148 total, while the 2011 super outbreak had "just" 15 violent tornadoes but 216 total tornadoes. I imagine part of the gap can be explained by the fact that April 27th featured a lot of early morning tornadoes even before the "main event" got going.

    I'm also hoping that thunderstorm season gets going around here soon. This is my last spring in the Midwest before I move to the West Coast at the end of summer, so hopefully I can experience a couple more thunderstorm events! The West Coast is definitely a downgrade in terms of weather I find interesting (thunderstorms and snowstorms) but the atmospheric river events will hopefully keep me engaged at least. One thing I will not miss is the cold winters. Consecutive 10 degree days has really gotten old for me, especially since I have to walk around in it.

    List your Strongest Tornadoes ever

    It's just one dude's opinion but some of his analyses are pretty thorough and in depth at least, even if you disagree overall with his assessments. https://extremeplanet.me/2012/07/01/the-non-definitive-list-of-the-strongest-tornadoes-ever-recorded-damage-intensity/

    This is a fallacy I see thrown around a lot here. An average summer feels "like summer" here because that's what we are used to. If there was someone who was a "heat lover", who thought that summer should be constant 90+ degree days like they have in Texas, then they would be pretty upset about how "un-summer like" the typical summer is around here. They might make the same argument that beavis made and say that "the heatwave back in June was the only 2 weeks of real summer we've had. The other weeks have only been a disgrace". In fact, they may be used to the winters we get in the Midwest and say "90% of days in the winter feel like winter! In January and February it's winter-like because the calendar says so. Why can't summers do that here?" If we set our expectations for something that just doesn't happen climatologically, then we will get disappointed. Every single year. The only solutions are to A. move to Phoenix/Houston or Mt. Rainier/Alaska or B. Accept normal, and enjoy a nice 60 degree winter day when it comes (go outside maybe?).

    Late January-Early February Clipper Train

    Been snowing for about 3 or so hours now. Flake size has been fairly small the whole time, but recently it's been pouring. About an inch down so far.
