    I stepped out on my patio deck about an hour ago and saw the partial lunar eclipse...pretty cool to see, actually, I'm going to go out one more time as I write this.  So, the skies are much brighter now with the moon shining brighter as the eclipse fades away.  Glad I was able to witness something so rare that its been over 580 years since something like this happened!




    I stepped out at 3 this morning but clouds had rolled in! I wasn't about to stay up and wait to see if they would go away so I went back to bed.......I really wanted to witness it though they are so cool!

    @snowstorm83and LNK/OMA crew got hit pretty good overnight...and of course @CentralNebWeather where its been tropical of late.  @gabel23, how are you doing out there?   Is your garden doing good this year?



    Been a crazy year @Tom. Rain totals this month is sitting at just over 7" with another 2-3" in the forecast for tomorrow into tomorrow night. Last night we had a crazy amount of CG and the rain came down in buckets. Garden is out of conrol! Wife put up 14 quarts of chili and spaghetti base today and I still have 6 beer flats of tomatoes sitting in the wind! We also canned our Colorado peaches tonight so it has been a crazy sunday. My total precipitation since January (34.05") is well over what I average in a given year!

  3. Not often we see tornado warnings at night around here. The leading edge of these storms must be spinning up some crazy air out ahead of the line. The way it looks things will pass off to my north;  I could use the rain but it looks like I will be hit by the wind instead.

    Wow! Severe tstorm watch issued for scattered wind gusts up to 90😳 mph!!

    That’s one of the highest wind speeds I’ve seen for a watch here in quite a while. Normally 80 mph is considered a high number for possible wind speeds.

    Also, we’ve now had 3 severe tstorm watches this month. 2 that ended at 5 am, and the other that ended at 11 am.🙄🤣


    The crazy thing (and hopefully good thing) it's only a moderate risk on the dial. I would think a 90 mph likely would mean a high risk for wind on the watch detail. Regardless the supercell in O'neill is combining with the main line and will run into a lot of instability....and a low level jet.

  5. Well bad news around my county area. Last night the first of what was two supercells passed through my county. Multiple fields got shreaded by hail last night. Now it looks like a pretty good bet of a possible wind damaging MCS rolling through tonight. We need the rain but too bad about the crops. I was able to chase both supercells that passed through my county and the lightning was crazy!

  7. Lucked out here that’s for sure. Ended up with 1.3” of rain and was a welcome relief! I have a mowing business and I was outside for nine hours yesterday, then had my daughters eight and under softball game that night.  I’m about sick of this heat and yards are in stress. This rain will help them bounce back for a bit.

  8. The one thing I have noticed in terms of the past couple runs of models; it seems the deformation zone is taken on a more west to east based set up. With the surge of moisture coming up to the north it’s going to be interesting to see if that’s a trend. There is gonna be a lot of snow dumping on the front range of the Rockies. I would think dynamic cooling along with the fact that it is a cut off low will make this an interesting set up.
