  1. Agree to disagree ... Many of the doomiest model runs indicated at least a hurricane strength storm. Even though maximum winds have increased to near hurricane strength, the center of circulation is still broad and exposed. In other words, it's weaker than previous model projections indicated. The trend in model guidance is clear -> westward ho!
  2. Looks like a broad center of circulation that won't organize quickly. Fortunately, a weaker storm should track father west so that it misses New Orleans. Imho heavy rain was always the greatest threat from this disturbance.
  3. Even though it's not in the Northeast region, the Pacific Northwest had an amazing display of marine layer fog this morning:
  4. Today, I saw the most intense WV thunderstorm I've witnessed in just under 2 years time. A handful of intense CG strikes, a couple minutes of pea to marble size hail, ~45 mph gusts, torrential rain. I'll give it a 6 out of 10 on my Missouri calibrated scale. Another torrential thunderstorm just moved finished moving through as I type. Roughly 1.25" of rainfall so far this evening and there's more coming, could be close to 2" by morning.
  5. Exquisite valley fog this morning across the Northeast this morning:
  6. Sorry to be 'that guy', but the title forgot to mention West Virginia The underwhelming line of storms pushed through around noon local time and the airport recorded just 0.13" of precip. I expect another round of storms this evening as a weak cold front moves through a destabilizing air mass. The first indications of said round of storms can be seen as an agitated pre-frontal cumulus field:
  7. Even though it's not 'cold' there's a nice visual example of cold air damming lee of the central Appalachians this morning:
  8. I'm not sure why you interpreted 'persistently warmer than normal temperatures' as 'scorching heat' ... The GEFS mean 2m temperatures indicate the warmest days next week will be in the upper 70's to lower 80's, which I think many would agree is a 'happy medium' between recent cool weather and summer heat/humidity.
  9. Another May morning with beautiful valley fog:
  10. "Little push of warmth"? Seems like a week or more of persistently warmer than normal temperatures due to the powerful western trough. I stopped the animation at day 10, but warm anomalies persist beyond:
  11. Beautiful valley fog across the Allegheny Plateau this morning:
  12. I understand May snowfall at the higher elevations isn't too rare, but I'm quite curious just how much will fall. Do the mountain resorts keep measuring snow even though they're closed for the season?
  13. I just dropped by to post this same thing, but I'm glad to see it's already here :) Their write up is focused on being able to identify ingredients needed for mesoscale snow bands, because this event way over-performed in the northeast kingdom where snowfall rates between 1" and 3" per hour persisted for several hours.
  14. Pecos Hank has been chasing for years and usually captures good footage. I really like his end of the season summaries and I definitely recommend going through them when you have a chance.
  15. Gotcha, sounds like his code glitched. Troubleshooting something like this can be really frustrating
