@daxx any chance for severe weather tomorrow?

I believe that western and southwestern pa has the best shot at severe.  They look to have the best cape.  I believe the easterly flow in our area will limit any decent cape.  We will be closer to the warm front so maybe a strong storm or two.  Not an expert at all on severe weather, so hopefully Mag can chime in.

Can’t relate on the underachieving rainfall. Just got crushed with a torrential downpour with some thunder. Lots of standing water in the yard and one of the underground drains at the bottom of the yard was erupting like a geyser. First time I’ve seen that since I moved here a few years ago. It must have been fairly rainy earlier this morning.

@canderson I hope your family member is doing better.

We don't often have a temperature near 20 at noontime during January snowstorms...

Wait - we often don't have January snowstorms.  :D

Maybe we'll have actual winter weather and snow chances in December for a change if some of these rumblings about an eventual Nina come to fruition. Most CPC guidance is pointed generally neutral but the CFS v2 has been solidly in nina territory later this year. Just a little bit of time to hone that one in haha.

This next batch of torrential downpours is here. The elevated instability is definitely present as there's been several cloud to ground strikes.

Those storms on the SW corner of PA look gnarly.

The tornado warned cell is about as strong as a signature as you’ll see in this area.

Quite likely to be some flooding issues around here this evening with this last batch of heavy rain/thunderstorms moving in.

Impressive line of storms.  Looks like a little rotation on cell entering Somerset County.  I believe that was the same storm that had a tornado warning with it earlier

At supper time I had 0.80" rain for the day. Also a little thunder here also.

I noticed this week the grass really started to green up.

The 0z Canadian is currently the only model that gets some snow to the LSV & MD with the coastal on Wednesday morning.

The other models currently bring the low to the NC coast & then take it wide right.

Hearing what sounds like distant thunder here at the house. Radar and Lightning Strike says it might be possible. Of course it could be the trucks hitting the 237 potholes on the main road behind me... :lol:

We are at 66 here.  Sun has been out for about 2 hours.   Not sure if we make it or not.   Add the Sat Pic.  Punch of dry air coming up west of the South Mountain Range.  Its yard mowing time!

I see a Wunderground report of 49 on the Adams/Franklin County line.  We have spiked to 68 so it looks likely to make it.  Low 80's in Western PA right now.  That same phenomenon I reported a few months ago, where going about a thousand feet/one mile  up into Cascade area turns into dense fog, is happening again.  Its pretty cool.  Clouds/fog hold at the top at the ridge then dissipate once you start down the west side.

So I assume since harrisburg area is still pretty cloud covered and cold that any real chance for a decent thunderstorm is moot for us?
