May 15 2018 Severe Threat SNE

Recommended Posts

Sky has that funny slightly darker blue hue to it today, like someone mixed a dash of payne's grey in it. Reminds me a lot of the look on June 1, 2011 to be honest.

Question to you folks: I am a bit of a weather-phobe. Sitting here in the middle of RI. Changes that any of this craziness really moves east? Mostly the tornado stuff, I mean.

To quote Lillo, "When was the last time there was a sixty percent wind prob without hatching?" Probably because it would qualify for a high risk designation?

The line of thunderstorms would be coming through the RI around 6pm.   They should start to weaken as they move SE through the state.  Best chance of severe would be in Connecticut and Mass.

You should be fine there. Storms definitely possible, but much lower tornado threat.

Kind of interesting with the placement of this new tornado watch relative to the risk zones.  Tornado Watch is a bit north of where I thought it would be.  Even into S VT in areas SW of me that are were marginal.  Makes sense with the solar insulation blasting away up here.  Didn't think I would break out into the mostly sunny skies.

Lucky I am in Northern VT. It’s someone else’s turn to have their lawn ripped up (just kidding). With my luck a tornado would tear its way up to my lawn and rip out all of the landscaping progess I have made since those microbursts in the winter. Stay safe everyone and remember to bring all pets as well as children and any family indoors. Anyone who says the weather is boring during spring/summer is wrong and today is there to prove it!

This still could be pretty boring for most

Wow @ wind probabilities.

Thanks for suggestions, y'all! I'm not sure I'll make it to Worcester area in time, but we'll see!

You don't feel a sudden "illness" coming on?
