First legit storm of the season.

Gah y'all would love Louisiana.

We get a storm like that every day for 4-6 months.

You have a beautiful state that's for sure. Do you think y'all will ever move back down there or are you in MD for the long haul?

DC is the new Louisiana. You guys thought I was done just yet.

For reasons I may one day elaborate on, I'm here for the long haul. :)

Not much T&L in upper NW but then again I was in a basement for part of it. Brief cloudbusts, some really optimized ominiscity (a new coinage that most assuredly will not catch on) above me, little bit of wind, but all in all, fringed.

My daughter goes to school up near Cabin John and said they got nailed today: barrage of t&l, torrential rains, some impressive winds. The same school that was in the parth of the tornado warned cell last week and made no effort to get the kids to safer places, getting them away from windows, etc. Some were in gymnasiums, walking around outside, I even think some outside athletic after-school practices were going on and not interrupted. OK, the cell didn't drop and wouldn't have been a monster if it did, but still ... I'm tempted to say something, but my daughter says it would embarrass her, so maybe I'll email someone in confidence.

Consistency at least - of course it could be consistently wrong...

But 11z HRRR has almost the same thing.

Those are pretty silly parameters.  Don't know why people use them.

I tend to just use them to get an idea of where the "best" activity might be - and also to look for consistency. Other than that I don't really think they have much use. I've seen days where they look crazy and we get nothing as well as days where just a little green shows up and we get multiple TORs
