Looks like another hour or two and we see some improvements. I just laugh waking up day after day to grey skies.

took advantage of weekend sunshine for a long stroll around Tyler Park this morning, essentially cart path only as anything off the paved trail is swamp land, on top of a hill or bottom of a hill is irrelevant as the ground is totally saturated 

eagerly awaiting at least frozen mud

GO BIRDS!!!!

My phone didn't do it justice, but it was a great sunset tonight. Dark sky except for the western horizon.

HI everyone, I think that this is the best forum to share an article that I spent most of last fall working on that I just posted to my blog a couple of hours ago. Some of you know that I write a blog about aerial wildland firefighting and related issues which sometimes concern weather issues affecting firefighting. What started a simple conversation with a couple of friends of mine about Fire Weather Watches and Red Flag Warnings turned into a much longer article with a discussion of Fire Weather Watches and RFW along with discussions of some of the other advisories, watches, and warnings issued by the NWS.

Along the way, I got help with meteorologists from our own WFO Mt Holly, and several other WFOs from around the country. And a retired NWS meteorologist. Their help was invaluable.

NWS Advisories, Watches, Warnings with a Focus on Fire Weather

PS on second thought perhaps this would be better in the winter banter thread. Feel free to move.

Impressive gusts this morning, easily 40+ mph when my semi-obstructed home station is showing gusts of 38 mph only 15 feet off the ground.

Beautiful crescent moon in the afterglow of the sunset. Plus it's free!

Forgot to post this yesterday, but I thought the edge of this snow shower looked pretty neat
