Beautiful spring day all of a sudden.  Even went to the pool. I confirm the water was above freezing as it was definitely liquid, but can't say how much above freezing.

Sun did finally break through here - that helped. I've been back and forth to SoccerPlex in Germantown every day since Friday night and can report that until today, it was wet and overcast each day, and windy as hell Friday and Saturday.

Headed down to Ocean City through Friday for a conference.  Like clockwork, we're socked in with a marine layer as thick as bbq sauce.

What a weird shape the storms along I-66 are turning into... like an upside down L... I am guessing it will be a couple hours before things quiet down tonight

ETA: Evening LWX AFD explains why

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
929 PM EDT Tue May 30 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Upper level low pressure will drift east across the north side
of the Great Lakes this week. In the meantime, weak high
pressure will prevail over the Mid Atlantic outside of weak cold
frontal passages tonight and Wednesday night. High pressure
builds into the area for the end of the week.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/...
While convective activity has diminished in intensity over the
last hour or so...convective regeneration continues along
residual outflow boundaries and a convectively-reinforced
stationary front across north central VA. MUCAPE near 1000 J/Kg...with
EBS AOA 40kts (per 00z IAD sounding) continues to lead to some
organization. Activity expected to weaken over the next few
hours as instability/inhibition continues to wane/increase.

You guys dont usually see me outside of the winter. But I had to share with my fellow weather freaks. I had a tornado come right in front of my house this evening. Craziest wind I have ever felt in my life. It actually chased me into the house. And I NEVER go inside during a good T-storm. A few uprooted trees, busted windows and missing screens. But no major damage.  A neighbor 2 streets over caught a pic of it while it was over my neighbors house across the street. My first tornado. It was AWESOME!

Wow... nice pic and I am sure you enjoyed seeing a tornado :)

Did you send it to LWX yet?

Its not my picture but I know NBC4 and ABC7 have requested it for tonights broadcast. And as far as "seeing" it. I couldnt see anything at all. Being inside of it all I saw was a wall of rain and sideways trees. It went about 50 yards from my house and I literally had to run inside once the wind felt like it was going to pick me up. Crazy stuff. And this was a baby tornado. I cant imagine what the big ones are like.

Ian, Ellinwood, and I could have saved a couple grand and just headed to your house LOL.

Glad everyone is ok.
