Heard multiple trees go down in the woods. One fell on a house, another on power lines on Heatherhill Rd.

Gusts were easily 55+mph. My tree-obstructed anemometer registered a 51mph gust, which usually means winds are much stronger at the treetops. Strongest of the year so far.

Feels like January out there. Snow showers yesterday with winds gusting between 30-40mph. Like a typical January NW flow day with April sun angles. Lol.

This morning, wind chills dipped into the upper teens. Barely hit 40°F by noontime despite full sunshine. Afternoon high was 45°F.

Could drop into the middle 20s tonight.

Had our first two thunderstorm days early in the week. Nothing even remotely severe but it was nice to hear thunder again.

Now we have a dynamic pattern coming up over the next 10 days. Multiple opportunities for sharp cool fronts, forced squalls, and comfortable temperatures.

Currently 57 degrees with fair weather cumulus and NW winds 25-35mph. Beautiful.

Interesting week of weather. Rough winds last Wednesday afternoon, much stronger than projected and stronger than anything we saw over the winter. Followed by two consecutive subfreezing nights.

Then a much needed 0.7” of rainfall last night. Trees looking happier again, after the young foliage got battered last week. Now partly to mostly sunny and in the mid-60s with a fresh NW breeze.

Tomorrow looks like a sunnier version of today. Then Tuesday - Thursday look much warmer with highs in the mid-80s, and lows in the upper 50s to middle 60s. Followed by another spring cold front.

Love this time of year.

High Wind Watch from 11AM Friday to 5AM Saturday. This one looks legit..strong cold/dry advection under a tropopause fold plus a downsloping component.

Given duration + leaves on trees, I think it’d be prudent to go with a high wind warning N/W of the fall line, assuming guidance holds.

If it were February or March, maybe I’d play it safe w/ a wind advisory for 55+mph, but it’ll probably be close either way.

Currently 81 degrees and a bit humid with mostly cloudy skies.

Already roaring out there this AM. Have had several gusts near/over 45mph already. I think this evening is gonna be rough with that vortmax/tropopause fold slicing through the region.

Latest in the season I can recall being under a high wind warning. At the moment it runs from 12 noon to 2AM. Strongest winds likely in the 5pm-midnight window, in my opinion.

Big time winds with that rain shower. Shook the house, our ears popped. Mixed down pretty much all of the available wind aloft thanks to evaporative cooling.

At least 60mph, possibly stronger.

Cicadas very loud again this AM. One heck of a showing from brood-x so far.

06z ECMWF maxes out the flash rate color bar this afternoon. Let’s see if it verifies.

Great thunderstorm day today best Event in quite sometime with the back to back lines.

It was a legit day. First line gapped us but the second one was a beast. Pulsing gusts at/above 60+mph and a torrent of rain and lightning. Some of the heaviest rain I’ve ever seen, in fact. Overwhelmed the gutters and cascaded off the roof like a waterfall.

Wind core passed directly overhead.

After a couple days off due to rain, the cicada party started again just after sunrise today w/ temps in the 40s. Did not expect that at all. Guess they were getting antsy.

Should be loud this week with overnight lows warming from upper 40s/low 50s into the mid/upper 60s.

I’m jealous. Nothing but sunshine and humidity here. Afternoon temp 91/77, for a heat index of 105.

How the heck is it only June 8th? I’m already drained.

Storm blew up overhead around 9PM. Was a gully washer, dumped roughly 1.5” of rain along with frequent/close lightning and winds around 30-35mph.

Now it’s just warm, muggy, and foggy with the sound of water dripping from the trees permeating the night air.
