So far the atmosphere remains capped. High of 92*F with heat indices in the mid/upper 90s..feels like June outside.

bust with the storms today things stay to warm aloft to capped another issue was the energy likey went north from last night which resulted in little trigger to fire anything.not the best job performise wise by the models as they were overdone with the convection today.another shot Monday as the system out west gets into our reagion.next weekend maybe the exact opposite of this weekend as data wants to set up a rainy cool pattern.the question is how will our thunderstorm season this summer turn out it has to be better then the last few which sucked for the most part.I do worry about our drought some summers that had droughts ended up being horrible patterns thunderstorm wise mostly just the hot and dry pattern let's hope we don't see hot and dry and borning.hot humied hazy is bad enough but add little to no thunderstorm activitie would make it a extra long summer.with our luck latey watch that be the case this summer 😂

True those normally April and even may tend to be problematic for severe weather here mostly due when you do get systems we tend to get on the cool ocean flow it not until June really when storm events increase.

May is okay sometimes. Monday could be interesting but instability looks like an issue. Still, I think we'll score something decent this month..plus June looks like it could rock.

That was a nasty supercell NE of Winchester VA today. Reports of significant damage, both wind and hail related. Whether it was tornadic or not remains to be seen, but there's a good change a tornado did touch down.

So far looks like another fail here storms weakend to just light showers pa are the winners seems the energy really went up there also instability was a problem today in our region despite the fact we were on the warm side of the front.hopefully the pattern becomes more faverble later this month and June.I do think we will eventually cash in as we are due for a big event.also storms to our south 😂

Winds just gusted to 77.1mph @ Fort Belvoir, VA. Snowshoe hit 64mph earlier. I'm estimating gusts between 40-50mph here right now..downsloping ftw.

Sucks that my anemometer is blocked by big trees, which now have fully leafed out.

We're in a hot spot for wind today, apparently. My anemometer is surrounded by mature trees and still picked up a 38mph gust this morning. In reality that gust was probably close to 50mph, but even the 38mph gust is stronger than the peak gusts measured at both Dulles and Reagan, both of which are better-sited than my station in terms of wind exposure.

Heavy rain this morning is a surety but severe looks like it likey stays south but elevated thunder can't be ruled out look like we likey have to wrait late may or june for a more favorable pattern hopefully June proves to be active.some of the signs do point to June being active in our region last time we saw a good severe season was 2012 so we are due for an event or two this summer mines well enjoy this upcoming cool pattern as many things are lining up for another blow torch this summer.

We ended up with more action this morning then I sort of expected those it seem to have little to any lighting and thunder with it mostly a heavey rain wind threat with the squall line.more storms have pop up but so far they been eather west of 95 or in northern va likey where they had more cleaning better instability.

Looking at the modeling, I think it's safe to say our seasonal transition is just about complete, and we enter the summer pattern during the upcoming workweek. June looks like a warm month as well.

At least the cool/wet cycle only lasted 2 weeks this year, which is closer to climo. Last year it lasted the entire month of May.

Torchy. Hit 96*F by 1pm, but early enough in the season that dewpoints are relatively low (mid-60s), so heat indices are sitting around 100*F.

Still sitting at 96*F as of ~ 250pm.

This area is due for something big. Soon enough we'll find a way to break the curse and get a macroburst into the DC beltway from the west.

To be honest the way the suck age has been over the last few years it makes you wonder how we manage to score a big snow storm January 2016 and a big severe weather outbreak febuary 2016 in the mist of a suckage over all periold Guess it just mother nature trying to keep us humbled.
