Round 1 went severe after it passed me. Looks like round 2 will miss to my north. Blah.

I'm OK with that.  I just checked and when the EDG is running in summer mode with AC it's costing ten dollars an hour at current diesel prices!  YIKES!

 Looks like betwixt and between/dying on the doorstep once again here. Been missing everything all week.

Just a few min ago, was still getting lightning strike indicators.  Checking the radar, yep, we're in between systems.  Checking the eye in the sky, indeed, it really is apocalyptic looking out there!  Would be amazing in the middle of the night.  This camera has picked up nocturnal storms off the coast of Virginia Beach as well as trails from rockets launched from Wallops Island.

Still, though, no fireflies.  After two days of heat, tonight, there better be some! ;)

In my personal experience, and emphasis on MY personal experience ;), yesterday had some loose similarities to May 26, 2021 (last year) and May 14, 2018.

Similar to May 26, 2021 in the sense that there were two rounds of storms round one being more isolated during the mid/late afternoon and round two pushing in from an additional line of storms from the west that rolled through more areas during the evening.

Similar to May 14, 2018 in the sense that the first round of storms yesterday (yes I know that May 14, 2018 had only round of storms) made for a small temp/dewpt depression resulting in a low and dark photogenic shelf cloud through much of northern VA (like on 5/14/2018).

Evident off 83 too - just south of the Shawawn exit there were tree falls next to interstate like a mini-downburst for a spell. 

yeah, I saw that too this morning. Lot of limbs down near Schilling Business Park and Oregon Ridge

Has anyone else ever received a call from the local NWS office asking about storm damage? I've moved since originally taking the Basics 1 spotter course, so I think they were inquiring based on my old address.

It's been at least 10 years since I took the class and they've never proactively reached out... Wonder if that's something new.

NWS has been doing that for some time. It's incumbent on the spotter to let them know of your new address.

We've received at least a couple calls from LWX since we moved to AACo over 20 years ago. Problem is that by the time I get the voicemail, it's usually too late.  I should check/update that my mobile number is in the database.  

Also, judging by the posts on this forum, my little section of the world is just not as prone to severe weather as lots of other spots around the CWA.

Pardon the non-Mid Atlantic topic but what's with that large wedge tornado in Texas yesterday that reporters keep saying has "wind gusts of 70 mph?"  I just saw this quote in another article.  70 mph?

after photos and videos of a gigantic tornado near Morton circulated online. The storm has wind gusts up to 70 mph, NWS officials in Lubbock said.

    For now, I like the Friday setup.    NAM Nest and HiRes FV3 both show a squall line or QLCS sweeping through the area in the late afternoon / early evening, with a fairly good environment in place ahead of the line.
