This is the hard part...

This is the part I hate. Sitting... waiting... Yes, we know the pattern is changing, but everyone wants to see concrete evidence, they want to see a big snowstorm barreling toward us like a giant avalanche. I know because that's what I want. :classic_biggrin: But I (we) have to be patient. We've had our 60 days of cold, 30 days of warmth, so it's now time for our 60 days of cold again. Winter is knocking on the doorstep, no question about it. But until the models can get it all figured out... we wait for our storms.

I have a lot of pictures of me when I was younger and growing up in Nashville,  playing in the snow, and maybe that is one reason I love snow so much. I remember going out and staying out until your feet were frozen. You would come back in, throw the clothes in a dryer, eat something, throw the clothes back on and head back out.  They were great times. I remember one snow that was so large, that we blocked off the top of the hill where we would sled with a big berm of snow so no one could drive through. The mailman wasn't happy with us. :classic_dry:

 These early pictures had to have been taken when I was about 5 years old, so around 1960. I don't remember the snow back then other than from these pictures and only remember this house from these pictures.

But I do remember the snows we had when I was in the 6th grade on up. Listen to Bastardi talk about the winter's of the 60's, and you'll understand the snows I grew up with. Those snows brought so many great memories. And we're not talking little snows, I'm talking BIG snows. Take a look.

I'm sure everyone has some favorite childhood memories and pictures of snow, so feel free to share them here.

    • MD 1266 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR THE MISSOURI BOOTHEEL...NORTHEAST ARKANSAS...WESTERN TENNESSEE Mesoscale Discussion 1266 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0402 AM CDT Thu Jun 27 2019 Areas affected...the missouri Bootheel...northeast Arkansas...western Tennessee Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 270902Z - 271130Z Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent SUMMARY...Storms now over the Missouri Bootheel are expected to persist with a marginal hail threat early this morning. With time, a wind threat may develop south/southwestward into AR and TN. DISCUSSION...Storms have increased on the west side of a distinct MCV where westerly 850 mb winds of 20 kt are feeding relatively warm/moist air into the zone of low-level convergence. Forecast soundings show cool midlevel temperatures which are contributing to MUCAPE of 1500-2000 J/kg. Though wind profiles will remain weak, a south/southwest storm motion may support a few cells capable of low-end severe hail. With time, storm coverage is expected to increase, with a general west/southwestward expansion. Several CAMs support this scenario into AR and western TN. Depending on the degree of outflow produced, a damaging wind threat could materialize later this morning. Until then, marginal hail will be the main threat. ..Jewell/Edwards.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...PAH...MEG...LSX...LZK...SGF...

    • MD 1265 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 451... FOR CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA...FAR SOUTHERN NORTH DAKOTA Mesoscale Discussion 1265 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0215 AM CDT Thu Jun 27 2019 Areas affected...central and northeast South Dakota...far southern North Dakota Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 451... Valid 270715Z - 270915Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 451 continues. SUMMARY...A line of storms will continue to evolve as it travels northeast across WW 451, with a few damaging wind gusts and marginal hail expected. DISCUSSION...An initial line of storms over northwest SD has dissipated from the south, and merged with a band of storms associated with 850 mb warm/moist advection over central SD. Despite the loss of convection with the western line, severe outflow winds have spread well south of the area and through Rapid City. Over the last hour, the warm-advection storms (now extending from Corson county through Pierre and toward Chamberlain) have shown signs of marginal hail and wind. The air mass ahead of this line remains strongly unstable, and new outflow produced should aid a continued northeastward propagation. Further, strong outflow from the western SD activity is now merging with northern portions of the leading line over north central SD. It is possible that lift will then increase as the deeper outflow undercuts existing storms. Trends will continue to be monitored for any line enhancement, and possible downstream watch into the eastern Dakotas. ..Jewell.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1264 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 450... FOR PARTS OF WESTERN NEBRASKA AND SOUTH DAKOTA Mesoscale Discussion 1264 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0958 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019 Areas affected...Parts of western Nebraska and South Dakota Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450... Valid 270258Z - 270400Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450 continues. SUMMARY...Thunderstorms spreading across and northeast of the Badlands may continue to intensify late this evening, while another evolving cluster of storms poses an increasing risk for strong surface gusts and hail across into northwestern South Dakota by 10 PM-Midnight MDT. Trends are being monitored for a watch extension and/or new severe weather watch north and east of severe thunderstorm watch 450. DISCUSSION...Large-scale forcing for ascent associated with the mid-level short wave trough has been weak enough that thunderstorm increase and intensification has been slowed by mid-level inhibition associated with the very warm elevated mixed-layer air. Still, isolated stronger storms have been accompanied by severe hail, and severe gusts (52 kt) at Chadron, as well as near severe gusts (48 kt) at Alliance. A conglomerate surface cold pool generated by this convection appears to have developed, with 2-4 mb 2-hourly surface pressure rises noted at Chadron and Alliance in 27/02Z surface data. At least attempts at vigorous new convective development continue on the northern portion of the cold pool, now spreading into the Badlands of South Dakota. As this progresses northeastward, into a more weakly capped (as inferred from the 700 mb thermal gradient) boundary layer still characterized by large CAPE, there still appears potential for rapid intensification near/north of the Interstate 90 corridor. Additionally, strong to severe convection is in the process of growing upscale to the east of the Bighorns. This activity may continue to evolve into an increasingly organized mesoscale convective system, in the presence of at least moderately large CAPE and westerly deep-layer shear, while developing eastward along the lower/mid tropospheric baroclinic zone into northwestern South Dakota through 04-06z. As it does, thermodynamic profiles appear supportive of increasing potential for strong surface gusts, in addition to a continuing risk for severe hail. ..Kerr.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1263 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 449... FOR MUCH OF MONTANA AND FAR NORTH-CENTRAL WYOMING Mesoscale Discussion 1263 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0703 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019 Areas affected...much of Montana and far north-central Wyoming Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 449... Valid 270003Z - 270100Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 449 continues. SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across WW 449. DISCUSSION...Within the past hour, satellite/lightning imagery has indicated an overall increase in convective coverage across WW 449. The environment continues to support damaging wind gusts and large hail given weak to moderate instability (700-2500 J/kg MUCAPE) and strong deep shear (50 kts 0-6km shear). The boundary layer across this region is well mixed, with weak low-level wind fields (outside of thunderstorm cores) and cloud bases rooted around 3km. Thus, the expectation is that storms will be outflow dominant and perhaps grow upscale into linear segments - especially across southeastern Montana - which should continue to foster a wind/hail threat through the next few hours. Additional convection just south of the WW (across far northeastern Idaho and northern Wyoming) will also enter the WW area and pose a wind/hail threat. ..Cook.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
