  1. For everywhere wondering/speculating about where I have been, I am very flattered We have been on a road trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone this week. Took a nice week off before starting a new job later this month. It’s been gorgeous. Amazingly chilly out this way despite how warm it has been closer to the coast. It has snowed at some point the last 4 days, and most mornings have been in the teens. The extremely boring weather back home is part of the reason I haven’t posted much, but it’s also really nice just to unplug for several days and enjoy nature. Will be back in town

  3. As we near the mid portion of Spring, the signals from mother nature are bi polar to say the least. It has been a really warm start overall since March but that has suddenly flipped around and some of you are feeling (or about to) the last signs of Ol' Man Winter for the season. Of course, depending on your location, that may change but generally speaking I can say with confidence that we are heading in the right direction once we close out April. By the time we enter met Summer, my prediction is for the Heat to build in from the SW into the heartland of the nation. My only concern i

  4. The NAM is sticking with a farther nw track. My guess is it will trend southeast toward the other models.

  5. Today ended up being very pleasant. The temp over-performed a bit and reached the low 60s. The wind was fairly light and the sun was out. Sunday should be similar.

  6. Fun fact: Our last measurable snowfall in TOP was Feb 17 (0.4") which would be over two months ago (62 days) from April 20 (our next chance).

  7. Snow chances automatically make me more active on here even if it's April Not that I'm a big severe person, but there hasn't been much to track the past few years anyways. Last year had a few good nighttime storms though. May 5, 2019 had that EF-2 tornado graze SW Lincoln, which was significant. Other than that, I think that's been the only TOR warning for the city of Lincoln since I moved here in 2017. You wouldn't think this is exactly "Tornado Alley"

  8. I must say it was nice to have the leaves come in so late this year due to abnormally cool weather; a solid change of pace from the last decade. But now that they're coming out, it's starting to look really beautiful. Bring on the altocumulus castellanus clouds and cool, breezy early morning marine stratus decks... Summer is upon us...

  10. Super typhoon Surigae has gone nuclear. Winds now to 155kts/180mph. That’s a high end Cat5. Will be interested to see how 18z/00z guidance initializes that, given its a player in the coming jet extension.

  15. Here we are, mid/late April and we are tracking a potential formidable late season snowfall across the MW/GL's region. It will be April's version of a TX Panhandle cutter which will begin developing along a very potent cold front dropping down through the Great Plains on the infamous day of 4/20 (for various recreational reasons). Let's discuss... 00z Euro still holding onto the idea that MI will be the jack zone... @jaster220, I didn't realize that there is so much vegetation in bloom since I'm out here in AZ. This would be a bad scenario and I have to agree with you that it would be

  16. 83/41 today. Got a crap ton of yardwork done today so that tomorrow I can just relax, drink beer, and play some cornhole at the family bbq.

  23. While we all keep praying for the inside slider that could bring some rain to the state, the reality is that California has nose dived into widespread and long term drought. Incredible as it sounds, the only remedies coming from Washington and Sacramento are those goofy ideas once thought to make a difference; put a brick in the toilet tank, replace the grass with cacti, etc. Helps a tiny bit but California needs big water-lots and lots of water. The ongoing infrastructure arguments in Washington should include requests for water infrastructure and research. The economy of the nation is h

  24. On the lake... it feels hot out here. No wind at all. Boat launch was packed and there was no parking spots left.... people were parking trailers in the grass and sides of the road. Lots of people tubing and wake surfing. Kids are floating on tube and loving it.

  25. That’s an impressive looking jet on the 18z GFS. Several inches of rain on the westside, verbatim. Though I wonder if that might eat the cascade snowpack a bit? Boatloads of warm advection with that.

  26. It looks like the heaviest snow is trending south of I-80. 12z Euro Kuchera is also somehow slightly higher totals than 10:1 lol. I can't imagine very good ratios out of this.

  28. Yeah... no swimming yet. Although the surface water might be close to 60 by this afternoon. We are hoping the sand bar is above water. We are also bringing the tubes to float. Should be spectacular out there in the low 80s.

  36. Yeah it is definitely going to be all about the timing all the models have heavy snow in my area but the GFS and the Euro have some of the snow falling while it's dark. The NAM has all of the snow falling in the daytime hours which would give me hardly any if any accumulation.

  44. It is a winter wonderland here. There were 3-4" on top of my son's car, but in the grass it was probably a little over 2". Plenty of melting even in the dark. The streets were a slushy water combination. If this had happened during the day, I don't think anything would have accumulated. I would guess by late morning most will melt. If we officially finish with 3", we will be very close to 50" of snowfall for the season. My guess last night was we'd get 3", so I'm going to be pretty close.
