Yea, this looks like a landspout and not a major tornado by the way he is flying. Like small waterspouts, they can have lighter winds. 

Could it also be a cold air funnel? It’s hard to see the ground, so I can’t tell what’s happening.

This is fake.. I feel like this is how we got to so many named storms last year

To not take this literally, there is a valid/interesting debate on increasing numbers of short-lived storms, which can at least partially be attributed to better observation techniques rather than climate change. Not sure what this means practically, other than it might be worth considering that old averages might be slightly misleading - these storms likely always existed and just weren't observed as frequently. Not like they shouldn't count now that we've found them!

As the resident tropical guy—this one is anything but fake. This system had a well defined center, a developing Central Dense Overcast, and while it was developing along a diffuse front, it was being powered by the Gulf Stream, making it warm core. No naked swirl here. 

It’s a lot easier observing these storms now due to the phenomenal tools we have, but we should also keep in mind that 1) this fits climo and 2) warmer seas create wider windows for short lived storms to develop.

Who cares if the structure of the storm meets the criteria for tropical. It's simply too far north!!

We should just throw out the criteria and arbitrarily name tropical systems. 

A tad too far north- this one seems kinda fake to me..

Good afternoon all. Hope all have been well. :)

Life happened and I have not been on much. With everything opening up kids activities have gotten back into full swing and the Mom Uber is off and running again. 

I did get myself a present though. My weather station has been slowly dying. The solar panel was no longer recharging and while I could have just gotten a replacement my rain gauge was having issues. Also I have always wanted a station that I can have my info online. So I just got and installed my new station today. Just finished with all the online set up and the link to it is in my signature.

Nice. That sounds good. Just arrived at BC Brewery for a beer lol. Only 28 beers to choose from haha 

You would like this one. The description suggests lots going on- chocolate, waffle cones, vanilla, peanut. Its all very subtle though. I notice the chocolate the most. At 8%, not exactly my idea of an Imperial stout, but it is well done and quite good.

Sounds good. I have a Firestone parabola I bought a couple weeks ago. It comes in a box. Probably crack that one later this week.

Agree with both. I'd say 60-100 years ago storms were UNDER reported do to lack of observations. Things like Bill were just 'blows' or noreasters or such.

How can I be old when I am told I am too young to retire?  Something does not compute.  

 

I mean, its a good point. 50 isn't a normal age to retire at. But regardless, I am thrilled for you!
