    Almost totally unexpected carnage in SEPA this afternoon as stalled storms are dumping up to 10" rain in just this afternoon. Numerous water rescues, entire major roadways (Rt 30, 283, 83) are restricted or closing. We have had over 6 inches of rain since noon here in Manheim, Pa. We're on TWC right now, which is usually not a good thing. There's been a cell parked over us which seems to remain stationary. Numerous water rescues, roads washed out.

    Looks like the most active part of the season has come late to the upper Midwest. There's numerous points along this squall where there could be some spin ups... nothing will likely be as strong or long-lived as what could be produced by the super cell. Thunderstorms will likely develop across the region within the next hour or two. All severe hazards, including tornadoes, are possible and a Tornado Watch will likely be needed within the next two hours or so.

    Think it's time to start talking about the elephant in the room. So after scanning ensembles and the entrenched eastern ridge that looks to dominate the end of month to potentially early September. 12z GFS has 90s starting in the DC/Baltimore region starting on the 26th and lasting until it goes into low rez range. Looks like down sloping winds so coastal plain should see the bulk of the heating (I-95 corridor) back in the western areas warm but not excessive.

    Hello everyone,
    It should come as no surprise that we are grandfathering Accuweather's Rules and Guidelines. We are tweaking them a bit to decide on which ones fit this board the best, but I wanted to touch on this one specifically...
    2. Stay on topic! We have over 20 different Forums on subjects ranging all the way from Current Weather to Non-Weather. Topics or replies which do not belong will be moved elsewhere without notice to the author. If you want to chat with a user about something personal and off-topic, please use the Private Message system (click on their username to send them a message).
    Long range post belong in the long range sub-forum unless it's a verification of prior forecast for the period in said thread. For instance, if someone post the BSR graphics from August 1st in the August 20th thread it fits as verification. If someone post the BSR on August 20th, which is the initialization date for September 8th, in the same thread it will be marked invisible.
    This should be old news to us salts from Accuweather and I shouldn't have to be reminding those people how it's done.

    Although I'm talking about an awkward north-south warm front Friday, looks like a pretty healthy system Friday morning. Very impressive how well defined the warm front is on HRRR. Extreme shear in the warm sector, too. Southerly surface winds, 40-50 knot SWerly 850mb winds, and of course the strong westerly jet streak at 500mb. Good to see this train of low pressures. This coming one looks much better aloft than it does at the surface.

    A Slight Risk of Severe Thunderstorms is Forecast Today and/or Tonight A few severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening across parts of the middle Mississippi Valley and Mid South region. Damaging wind gusts appear the primary hazard, but there may be some risk for an isolated tornado or two. Rain gauge was .35" from the misc stuff during the day,  and when I checked it this morning, it was at 2.32" - so just under 2" of rain from that little thing!!

    SPC sparking interest in this potential - two culprits at play. One is an approaching warm front which should move in ahead in response to a shortwave traveling  north of the MidAtl and bring rains to interior NE and points N-E from there. I would think that region would welcome some moisture. Part two is  sun induced destabilization to affect the regions E of the Apps (roughly)

    Lots of front and back end configuring to do but I have opened registration so members can get started 'acquainting' themselves with the new software. I know its foreign compared to the old board but thats 15+ years old technology, welcome to the present and future to come...
    The current setup you see is the default application and a theme I installed it will need mucho customization to bring it to the atmospheric side but you gotta start somewhere. I will work on this and many other things to get us up to speed.
    In the meantime maybe Mr Renkin can put together a staff, I d say an admin or two to start, beside himself, some global mods, and sprinkle in some forum specific mods.
    We need lots of input from members on layout and forum structure. I came up with a different more organized structure, any input suggestions, changes, modifications are welcome and expected. This is your site, I am just the manager 👽, run it as you see fit and just let me know what you want.
    Quick overview for members:
    Account, notifications, PMs, etc in top right.
    Check profiles add what only you want to reveal
    Check your notification settings, there are quite a few. This software includes real time desktop notifications, will be a blast during snowstorms.
    Upload avatar, profile background, create a gallery for your image store, explore.
    You can post new topics, insert attachments, add video, almost any media.
    More info and how you can get support and make suggestions here:
    Just bear with me while I work on this as much as I can in my available spare time. Dont get hung up on the current layout, menu,  or colors or anything else for that matter, its all generic at this point. Once I have it all configured to mine and your liking I can start adding some gravy on top with the design. Also gives me a chance to create some new weather related mods for IPS. Any questions post in the forum or PM me or jdrenken until we get a full staff on board.
