  1. Great course, but hard!! Amazing views on both sides of it though! Would love to catch some storms rolling in on the valley!! Ps, surprised you’re not out in Colorado chasing the fresh powder!?
  2. Congrats! Moving in with @Rainshadow ?!😂
  3. Solar min in full effect ! Pretty impressive. Ncl’s putting on a show after sunset. Hopefully they make it down to pa!
  4. Agree with all of this!! Finally got it right again! Finished up playing Sea Scape Golf Links down here in Kitty Hawk. Beautiful course and was in great condition!! Pictured below is 236 par 3 17th, from the tips. Managed to get to about 20’ from the pin! (Yes, i par’d it!)
  5. Tomorrow is gonna be pretty epic!!
  6. I was in the Lima/Chester heights cell. When the core hit, winds picked up pretty big for a minute or so. Probably gusted to 40, maybe 50 very briefly. Pea sized hail. Maybe some small downburst possible. Had a wind shift as it passed in the opposite direction.
  7. Here’s the 3k NAM sounding for SEPA tomorrow @18z. Dews arent super high, and shear is pretty modest AOA 25-30knots. Check out the inverted V look ok thebsounding I highlighted. SPC mentioned this in their outlook. Should allow easier mixing of winds down to surface. Also have a decent EML. Have to see if that’s altered today is it crosses the oh valley. @Rainshadow‘s favorite, Total totals, at 57 on the sounding. He’s probably getting giddy!
  8. Day 2 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1257 AM CDT Sat Jun 01 2019 Valid 021200Z - 031200Z ...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS AS WELL AS THE MID-ATLANTIC VICINITY... ...SUMMARY... Strong to severe storms capable of hail and strong wind gusts are possible across portions of the High Plains into Oklahoma on Sunday and Sunday night. Additional severe storms capable of damaging winds are expected across portions of the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic region Sunday afternoon and evening. ...Northeast/Mid-Atlantic... An intense shortwave trough will pivot southeast from the upper Great Lakes toward the Mid-Atlantic region on Sunday. South/southwesterly low level flow will maintain modest moisture across the region with surface dewpoints in the mid 50s to mid 60s F ahead of an eastward advancing surface cold front. Strong heating beneath modest midlevel lapse rates (6.5-7 C/km) will result in generally weak MLCAPE (500-1500 J/kg). As forcing increases during the late morning, one or more bands of storms are expected to develop from central NY/PA into WV. Storms will shift eastward through the afternoon. Unidirectional and modest effective shear (around 25-30 kt) will support clusters and bowing line segments. Forecast soundings show an inverted-v lower level thermodynamic profile supportive of strong wind gusts and midlevel flow increases to 30-40 kt. Any upscale growth and cold pool development could further increase the risk for damaging winds as convection shifts eastward toward the Mid-Atlantic/southern New England through early
  9. Sunday could be interesting. Remnant EML moving in with a fropa. Nam and gfs both hunting at some convection in the region.
  10. Hrrr valid 21z: probably a supercell or 2 in there for thebregion. (And verbatim, in this run, areas that got hit hard yesterday).
  11. You had an unusual late season buckling of the Jet stream out west. (-PNA). That helped eject disturbance eastward. The se us death ridge also set up a pseudo “ring of fire”. Those disturbances eject eastward, and ride along the periphery of that ridge. As you can see below, where they were aimed at... somewhat uncommon for a few days, but these set ups do happen. If it happens again mid summer, we’d be taking Derecho somewhere In the us.
