Need some of that over here just to take the humidity down for a couple days again.


Soon. Hopefully.

Btw.. I realized something about that Northern MN stat. 3 times they dropped to 34 July 1-Aug 2 in past 2 decades but none for prior 8 decades. Interesting. Wonder if they did rest of August though.

After trees and powerlines down near Allentown, the line weakened and hit a wall in NJ.

Poof goes the moisture. Not getting even a drop from it now.

QUOTE(Solstice @ Jul 27 2018, 02:16 PM) *
Wow, crazy stuff... is that tree going to survive?


I'm hoping but having doubts.. Such a healthy, beautiful tree (especially in snow). My house is 30 feet away, I was outside 50 feet away 1 minute before. Something told me to go inside as the thunder got closer. Had I stayed, I would of dropped with the voltage spreading on the ground. When that tree got hit it was instant Flash and Bomb like explosion together. Power spiked but never went out (odd). A 2nd hit happened closeby too but not sure where it hit.


QUOTE(poconos @ Jul 27 2018, 10:21 PM) *
If only one side of the tree shows evidence of a lightning strike, the chances of the tree surviving and eventually closing the wound are good. However, when the strike completely passes through the tree trunk, with splintered bark and exploded wood on each side, trees are usually killed.


Only 7 days later and 1 side is showing stress already, needles drying up and looking brown and thinning. sad.gif

"When a tree is struck by lightning the liquids inside the trunk turn to gas instantly, leading to an explosion of bark. About half of the trees struck by lightning will die instantly, the other half will live for a number of years, although often weakened and made susceptible for future disease."


QUOTE(stretchct @ Jul 27 2018, 03:50 PM) *
They did.. my wife was in an elevator in Danbury when the power went out. Deluge and flooding over there. By the time it made it here, sprinkles. Its only 10 miles.


Yup... watch it go POOF.

Huh? From the NWS?


I use weatherusa.net. It's a simple and has a link to the full warning or watch. I think TWC had it but not for Sprint? Not sure if NWS has it. Accuweather should too or that might be to email only.

And here we go. sad.gif

1:25pm. Pop Ups forming. Thunderstorm Watches posted in oranges.

Everyone should be getting free text alerts sent to your phones by now. Never miss a warning. Even though I always look at the radar, the alerts help give me a heads up when I forget to look at the radar.

QUOTE
SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will develop in the next few hours and pose
a threat for some wind damage and severe wind gusts, as well as
marginally severe hail. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is likely

DISCUSSION...Strong heating to the east of a cloud shield over the
northern Appalachians and western Catskills has led to thunderstorm
development along a weak trough/differential heating boundary.
Sufficient deep-layer shear should support some storm organization
in the form of small bowing segments and discrete cells with
supercell characteristics, and steepening low-level lapse rates
within upper 60s to low 70s dewpoints should support the threat for
some damaging winds and severe wind gusts, with some severe hail
potential in any rotation that can persist in the discrete storms.
The coverage of the severe threat is likely large enough to need a
Severe Thunderstorm Watch in the next hour.

Water Vapor Loop last 4hrs. White & Blues = Moisture in Atmosphere. Reds & Oranges = Dry air.

Dry air around the perimeter of the tilted Atlantic Ridge. That's all shifting now so note the rain is entering NYC metro finally.

Dry air from Michigan to the Gulf States. That's behind the cold front coming.

Plume of moisture from Caribbean to Canada. Starting to get cut off now down south with that dry air getting injected and the ridge shifting back East




Surface Map. See the front? Gonna be a nice weekend!

The sharing of data and knowledge is never a waste of breath and time.


Yeah, that's true... .but its like writing a history book then throwing it out. I always scroll through some past storm threads to check out maps, posts and learn something I missed.

Kinda strange a company like accuweather cant find a way to close it down but just archive it all and rebuild a new forum. Maybe forums are a thing of the past now. Lol.

Anyway, my offer still stands if anyone is looking for maps or loops from previous storms that I posted.

I can't imagine Accuweather not simply starting up another forum on the new servers or whatever. It's not hard to create them and since they are one of the bigger networks I don't see why they wouldn't. It's like free advertising. People come to post and talk, then share on other sites and social media. More come to Accuweather and perhaps signing up to pay for services.

Anyway... what a waste of breath and time after all these yrs. If anyone is looking for old images or maps that I had posted for previous storms just PM me. Or find me on Twitter to ask.

4:30-8:30pm Radar & Wind Gust loop centered on D.C where it's been heavy rain for pretty much past 8hrs setting some records and flooding.

Those little homes are flooding reports. Temps in the 60s out there. Even in Richmond at this hour.

Winds are constant here. Love this weather!!! Rain close now. Windows open for now.

So what options do we have now? Are there any other weather forums? Is this system getting a "revamp" / replacement from AccuWeather?

I personally hope the data is saved... Lots of great content here that should be recorded. Sometimes I enjoy cracking open an old forecasting thread and reading it... Not sure how others feel.


QUOTE(WeatherMonger @ Jul 17 2018, 06:24 AM) *
Not sure when the site will disappear,
Gonna be weird not making a daily visit either looking at latest modeling output or personal thoughts on the next big event. Don't do Twitter and Facebook is losing its appeal, wish I knew how to start up a forum.


It's been fun interacting with all you guys and learning especially!

I look back at old threads myself. Would almost feel like it was such a waste of life posting. Hope they can be archived and saved and Maybe a new accuforum started with the new server and site?

Try Citydata weather forum for now. Mods do great job there and there's tons of threads. Easy to use too unlike AmericanWx. Not sure if individual storm threads would be allowed though but worth a shot

Interesting pattern being shown now (in mid July) coming up next 2 weeks how the troughs are back to digging down again like back in June. Made me wonder if it will continue or be back for fall. And naturally air gets colder after August so would be fun to see....and feel the crisps

Haha. what?? blink.gif Oak leaves just got full few weeks ago. Acorns take 4+ months to mature and a month to drop...No way at all acorns have grown and or fell yet. I suspect the tree is sick or maybe its another type of nut?
