    enhanced risk of severe storms 4/14-4/15

    It was neat in Collegeville. First batch of strong winds with maybe 50 mph gusts at 2:35 AM and then stronger gusts up to maybe 60 mph at around 3:10 with more lightning and a few rumbles of thunder. Definitely had that gust/lull/gust thing that made me pay special attention just in case a Tornado Warning was issued.

    Latest meso discussion sounds like a Tornado Watch is coming soon. https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0358.html

    Maybe 2-3 AM arrival in Chester & Montgomery Counties?

    Kinda what most people would call dreary today, but I'll take this kind of April weather. Not too hot, not raw - pretty much the perfect temperature.

    Hopefully, this will lead to fewer 90s this summer and a fun 2019-20 winter!

    A little too warm for my liking this early in April, but I won't complain loudly. Much, much better than 55 and a chilly drizzle.

    Marginal Risk for many of us today. Won't get my hopes up too much, but could be something to track this afternoon.

    Not worth bumping the general thunderstorm thread since it's only a 20% chance, but it will be interesting to see if a garden variety storm or two roll through later.

    Yes, given how nice it's going to be over the weekend and the continued warmth early next week even with showers, I'll take a day like today as a trade-off.

    I hope so. Spending Sunday afternoon & evening in New Hope.

    As wet as it's been (and with more rain coming tonight), I was surprised by the Fire Weather Watch for tomorrow.

    Definitely much drearier than I expected today based on what I was hearing a few days ago.

    Good luck, and great date choice - my wife & I were married on 3/29/2008!

    2019 General Thunderstorm Discussion

    Was surprised to see the mention of a chance thunderstorms with small hail in my local forecast. Sometimes these sneak attacks produce the best results.

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    B- is my final grade, barring a huge surprise storm over the next few weeks. Never got to cross-country ski, but the snowfall got to right around average and the subzero temps were impressive.
