Where's our MD?  :lol:

Should be interesting to see what the 18z SPEC sounding from KIAD shows in about 20 minutes 

Wonder if they're waiting on the 18z RAOB before making a call on a watch?

Where's the quickest to see the 18z RAOB?  SPC sounding page?

Not a particularly robust meso discussion.

I know, I think I'm just noticing the contrast between this thread and the midwest/ohio valley threads where they've been having tornado outbreaks with about 20 people in the thread lol.

the severe threads forum-wide has sucked in the last few years. 2011-2012 was the height of when central and midwest forums were the go to for severe chat. its pretty crappy now. i stay here.

no direct calls but I can feel it coming based on our lack of MDs and/or watches lol

You're not doing this properly!  You should be calling bust based on the radar!

The other nice thing is the severe weenies tend to not have a meltdown when storms don't work out. We move on after complaining a little bit. 

Not speaking for everyone - but there's a lot more of a "what happens happens" mentality with severe. 

Maybe because the aftermath of winter storms is often fun and pretty.

 

The aftermath of severe can be traumatizing

Thus far the models with the intense activity remaining in PA have been correct. Still early, though. 

That DC split is looking MIGHTY so far

Weren't the models more suggesting evening time for us potentially?  Like 6 to 10pm?

Also because we typically do not spend more than a day or two dumping our emotions into watching a potential evolve. With winter, it can be almost 2 weeks of waiting and watching lol
