  1. Dude right? This was ridiculous. Some of these stones were bouncing like 15 feet in the air after impact. It was incredible. Here's a picture I got of the storm coming in:

  2. Wow! Where the hell did that come from?! Almost all of the Omaha metro just got nailed with a huge hailstorm! Had a line of storms that were warned northwest of town, but weakened as they were approaching. Then just as the first cell moved into northwest Omaha, it exploded in strength. We had ping pong to golf ball sized hail at my house and then about 30-45 seconds of 60 mph winds. Just east of here and right through the heart of town it grew to tennis to baseball sized hail! Then it moved into Council Bluffs. A second storm formed just west of town and it also dropped hail up to tennis ball

  4. Special Weather Statement they said, Nickle Sized Hail they said, Your car will probably be fine they said (yeah uhh, no. My car looks like a golf ball now) There were a lot more than these 2 by the way, and I waited about 30 minutes to go out and grab these monstrosities. Can't say I've ever heard a sound as loud as baseball sized hailstones pelting your windshield.

  6. I just checked the numbers for Alert. Indeed, July 2013 averaged 1.1C below the 1961-90 baseline, and August 2013 averaged an impressive 2.1C below the 1961-90 normal. I know for a fact that Longyearbyen went 72 months (at least) without a below normal monthly average, from November 2010 until at least November 2016 (as quoted in the press last December). So I know that station was above average every month in 2013. Perhaps the Longyearbyen numbers are more sensitive due to their location close to the interface of the Gulf Stream and the pack ice?

  7. This thread was started in good faith, so I honestly apologize for derailing it. Like last summer, it's all in good fun. The issue I'm having with Jared is very long-running, and irrelevant to this thread, so I'll try to keep that drama out of here going forward.

  9. Boy, Omaha and Lincoln have really taken a beating the last week or two, with each receiving severe wind and hail, as well as very heavy rain.

  11. All week it appeared southeast Iowa would be the big winner from this event. The WPC consistently had a band of 3-5 inches of rain between Cedar Rapids and Burlington. The inverse happened. The heaviest has fallen in northern Iowa and down in Missouri. Southeast Iowa has barely received any rain. It's very difficult to forecast these highly convective events.

  12. Why? He's not a professional in either climate science or meteorology. He can say whatever he wants. It's up to you to either engage on scientific grounds, or ignore. Taking the low road won't get you closer to whatever goals you have....
