I take my father-in-law out for golf often and he says the same thing.  It’s tough to limber up when it’s chilly.  I get warmed up by the turn and then exhausted by the 14th tee.  :P

A bit warmer today but still have the stiff northeasterly breeze which makes it feel colder. Low was 45, high 62. Currently 58/50.

Yesterday's NWS forecast for MBY here in Hickory, NC, was for less than a tenth of an inch of rain today and less than a tenth for tonight.

How's that working out? Nasso good.

I am pushing two inches for today and a whole bunch more moisture still downstream...

Fla was fortunate to have been blocked from the severe weather/ tornadoes this week, and it looks like we are going to  have drier than normal conditions due to La Nina in the Pac,  even though a front  is expected to bring some rain on Thurs 4/1, but at first the rain chances were at 40%, now its at 30% as of today,(3/27), we will see if the chances drop further, for the Tampa Bay region. As of 2:58 PM, its 92 in Tampa, 33% hum, bar at 30.10, with winds at 2-4 from the SE to SSW.

Looks like a pretty stout hail core and some rotation heading towards jburns.

And it got here.  Quite the active storm.  Not very long lasting but intense. Heavy rain, pea sized hail, lightning strikes caused 3 momentary power outages, weather station registered a 43.4 mph wind gust partally confirmed by the branches lying in my yard. Also the temperature dropped from 72º to 59º in about 6 minutes.  All in all one of the more entertaining storms in several years.

Textbook hook echo near Knightdale.  Watching CBS17 live coverage at the bar.

Edit:. Approaching Wendell, looking even more impressive.

I thought of you when I saw WRAL showing that. I was hoping you got your drone up. Nice photos!

An amazing photograph, never have seen a super cell here in Fla. Our tornadoes are mostly EF-0 to EF-2,  with a record EF-3 , in 1998, during a strong El Nino at Kissimmee, NE of Orlando.

Drove through a tornado-warned storm near Goldsboro today and got caught in a hailstorm on 70. Quarter sized hail and easily 60+ mph wind. One of the wildest storms I’ve been in, had to come to a complete stop in the middle of 70 on the Goldsboro bypass. Likely have dents in my roof. Tried to stop at an underpass (for the hail) but there were 10 cars there and no room

It’s cloudy outside with a slight breeze. The ground is wet. Birds are chirping. Squirrels are getting run over by cars. Life is good. I expect all hell to break loose in a few hours.

2 days in a row that storms have fallen apart right before they hit my area. Picked up .18" yesterday from 2 storms and .03" today when a squall line fell apart. Low of 65, high of 82. Currently 68/64.

The couple of thunderstorms that were supposed to roll through here yesterday weren’t nearly as strong as the HRRR was indicating.
