I see they expanded the slight risk back west of the bay into my county as well. It's been pretty boring around here lately. I could use some interesting weather. 

Got an alert about the watch for home. Would be our luck to miss storms

We have solid lapse rates, shear and instability. Even the mid level lapse rates aren't terrible and that's a chronic thing we have going against us in these parts. Don't think it's going to be a lot of aerial coverage, but those who get a storm could get clocked pretty well.

Jackpot of 'meh' wins again...

Remember a gameshow in the 70s called Joker's Wild?  When you'd play against the devil, if you did not get a devil and got up to $1000 you'd win the jackpot?  I feel like luck being with these systems I'd pull the lever and THREE DEVILS would come up across the board!  LOL

big-time outflow boundary passage here in southern Howard County.    Gusts definitely exceeding 30 mph.     Not sure if I'm going to cash in on some rain.

Yeah, outflow was respectable. Rain starting.
