When does our wind kick in? I want to make sure I Jebwalk at the height. Question though. Should I wear ankle weights? I weigh 175 after the last beer...

:lol:

You could Jeb walk in the wind and check the Euro at the same time on your phone.  Now that's living.  Would be better if we were 48 hours from a snow event...but you could pretend.

Be cautious where you walk.  People killed by falling trees or limbs probably didn't think it could happen to them either.

I'd be more concerned with the "wind" delays the water in Mexico may cause you for the trip back!   :yikes:

Ha that could definitely be an issue. I will be sure to stick to margaritas assuming my flight leaves and I actually make it there :lol:

Wx, you seriously in Portland ? That pic from the storm?

I am and it is. If I can't get snow imby I'll find another one lol. Sitting around 5" right now. This was me (on a bus) trying to get through New Hampshire earlier this afternoon. 122.jpg

Sorry y'all, I had to abandon you for the weekend. I'm up here in PWM jebwalking through the streets. Can't wait for tomorrow.

I'm sorry about the rough situation you're in, but I think at this moment, a good snow chase was exactly what you needed. Hope you enjoy this one!

I think so too. It has given me a lot of time to think about my path forward, with none of the clutter of everything else.

That's awesome man! Give us plenty of updates.  I was close to pulling the trigger and driving there but didn't think I'd beat the storm up . Have fun . I've chased many times ...never ever disappointed.

The NWS is severe warning the line of showers sliding towards us in PA for 60mph winds.

LWX issued a STW... may I ask why?  Plus they are calling the line "severe thunderstorms"... don't see much lightning with them...

Because they qualify on winds and there is lightning with some of the line. Cmon, Yoda we've seen this before many times!

There is no "severe shower warning" ;)

The winds off the surface are impressive.  The showers have the ability to mix down to the surface.  60mph is warning territory.  You could argue that the HWW already covers it, but this would be a distinct event in duration.

I'm getting kind of worried about this line.   The HRRR shows it blasting through in a couple of hours.    it doesn't show the strong winds along the line as it rolls through, but it doesn't have the current strong winds either.

Is it just me, or does the line of showers seem to be "strengthening" some?  I am seeing yellows pop up on the line when playing the radar

Worried for life and property or winds verifying? Serious question. :lol:

This is my first time chasing anything. Plenty fun so far.

Is it because of the wind threat possibly being under played due to the models not showing it?
