    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    Good eye. That looked like the best (brief) couplet of the day in the region.

    Yeah, just saw and posted about it. There was a heads up in the main tropical thread. What an incredible storm.

    Yeah, it’s been an incredible period, both in terms of the number of intense storms and US impacts. To think that not too long ago we were in a decade long “drought”.

    2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    One more extraordinary moment for an exceptional storm. I’ll always regret not chasing (inland) https://www.noaa.gov/media-release/hurricane-michael-upgraded-to-category-5-at-time-of-us-landfall

    Whatever circulation was there seems to have weakened a lot. It looked pretty good for a bit.

    Yeah, that cell looks pretty good. I’d pop a warning on that.

    There is some decent rotation on that tor warned cell near Appomattox. That said, I’m not sure if they’ll continue the warning.

    April 2019 Discussion II

    For me, it was snow. My dad, brother, and I used to stay up late to wait for it and when we had a paper route as kids we’d always get a special breakfast/hot chocolate when we finished work during a snow event. Then tropical became my thing. I was just in awe of the power and relative unpredictability of it. These days I’m into pretty much anything which is why I’m a year round poster. Loving tropical can make me feel conflicted at times, especially after having chased and seen damage, but I help where I can and don’t worry about things I can’t control. I think you can be empathetic and still have a strong attraction to extreme weather. Anyway, I’m heading up to Caribou for the first time this weekend. Not the best wx wise, but it should be good.

    Wow, severe season off to a fast start. Wonder if this’ll be one of those high potential scenarios on the models that turns out to be less impactful. Just seems like the underrated events for the area end up producing the most.

    I’ve been decidedly in the spring camp for quite some time, but man, that’s just gorgeous.

    So...August? Looks like he’s in the game for a lottery pick. I heard he’s real excited. Unfortunately, I’m in the worst possible spot. Too bad to make the top cut, too good for the first pick. Still embarrassing.

    What a catastrophe for me.

    Thanks everyone. Putting it on a post or on the roof isn’t an option unfortunately, but I can better anchor it in my backyard. Appreciate the suggestions.

    I’m not sure if my soil is just terrible because of saturation or what, but the wind keeps ripping my vp2 out of the ground. It’s already screwed up my anemometer. Ugh. Eta: what kind of stakes should I use? Would 1’ be long enough?
