  1. Today
  2. Good morning! I don't know about everyone else, but I've had some serious winds all night long. There are two reasons... ridging wedging down the east side of the Appalachian's combined with the lower pressures from TS Beta. Winds are simply the result of pressure gradients, and we have a nice one today. On this SPC mesoanalysis map, you can see the higher pressures nosing down the east side of the mountains, while to the southwest, Beta loiters off the coast. The winds around 2500 feet this morning are ripping pretty good, but those will be relaxing as we go through th
  3. Yesterday
  4. Good morning! Not a bad day to get outside yesterday! The Big Canoe Car Club had a little gathering but I think the cloudy skies kept some away. If you'd like to see a few pictures that I took, here's the link to the album. https://photos.app.goo.gl/jik7Yd1zUTdADUzx9 I'm down to 51.6ยบ F at 6:21 am this morning and the temp is still falling, can I get to the 40's? ๐Ÿ™‚ I moved to Big Canoe in May but started my new data here on June 1, so this morning is the coolest I've had since I've been keeping records here. Yesterday was the coolest day of the month (6 am - 6 pm)
  5. Last week
  6. Good Saturday morning! Cloudy skies greet our day today, and those high clouds will probably hang around most if not all day long. I'll take it though! I'm loving these temperatures, and along with the clouds, it really feels like fall! ๐Ÿ™‚ And the reason for the clouds... These are the highs/high anomalies for the next 6 days And these are the lows/low anomalies... Precipitation is going to be non-existent until the very end of the period. There will not be much local weather to
  7. That slow meandering movement down there gives me Harvey flashbacks. Hopefully it stays offshore.
  8. Good morning! After the rain ended, the day didn't turn out too bad yesterday. Did you get enough rain? The morning map (infrared/temps/MSLP/surface and 850 mb winds) shows Sally moving off to the northeast while we have a nice breeze out of that same direction. Today will be the warmest of the next 5 or 6 as a cold front will be bringing our first taste of fall starting tomorrow. Speaking of that fly... say hello to #22. What will actually happen to 22 no one really knows right now. You can see from the map, 22 appea
  9. Some lingering light drizzle still but as of now storm total is 3.72 inches for my location.
  10. I had a rain gauge, but it was destroyed in one of our storms. I havenโ€™t replaced it yet! Thank you.
  11. Start with this link. These are the CoCoRaHS reports. These reports come from individuals using a certified rain gauge. I report my rain (or not) daily. All it takes is the purchase of a gauge (~$25-$30) and sign up for an account. https://maps.cocorahs.org/?maptype=precip&units=us&base=std&cp=BluYlwRed&datetype=daily&displayna=0&date=2020-09-17&key=dynamic&overlays=state,county&bbox=-86.97326660156251,32.95567280997862,-81.69982910156251,34.95349314197422
  12. Morning, Steve. Where can we find rainfall totals for our particular area? Thanks!
  13. Good morning! Some of you have had more rain than you though you'd get and others less, but I don't think anyone has been left out. Ok, maybe the NW corner of the state, sorry guys. I just measured 1.98" (and still climbing) for my CoCoRaHS measurement here but those of you further south are seeing much higher totals. It a very busy map this morning ( surface winds/850 mb winds/water vapor/temps/flood warnings in green) with flood warnings all over the place, especially to our south where the rainfall has been the heaviest. The 850 mb wind arrows are the ones wrapping around, while
  14. Wsb going all in on the HRRR. Could be a big win or a big bust. We'll see how it goes I guess. I know personally at these lead times I'd put more stock in the NAM, never been too impressed with the HRRR outside of 6 hours or so.
  15. Yet again the HWRF appears to have flexed its muscle as our absolute best model for hurricane intensity. Over the last couple years that model has just blown me away with not just its accuracy at intensity but fine structural details of the storms.
  16. The 12z trend is really pushing the heaviest rains south of I-20 now. More like the Macon area instead of metro Atlanta.
  17. Wouldn't want to be on top of Cadillac Mountain. ๐Ÿ™‚
  18. Yes, Sally has now made landfall as a CAT2 I haven't seen winds much over 100 mph. My sister is the red dot. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are staying in a condo on the 14th floor.
  19. Good morning! Got wind? It's been really windy here overnight and it's probably going to get a little worse before it gets better. But man... it FEELS like FALL this morning. โ˜บ๏ธ I'm in the upper 50's right now with 15-20 mph winds and it's COOL! Sally is making landfall as I type. My sister is staying down at Navarre Beach in Florida She's the red dot. They are 14 stories up so there has to be a little swaying going on. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was checking on the 925 mb winds from Sally and it is a little concerning for the higher elevations. The 925 mb levels will drop be
  20. I woke up at 3 am to find Sally showing out as she made her approach to Gulf Shores. 105mph with reports of surface winds estimated at 120 by mobile Doppler radar. I have a lot of kin who live in Baldwin county where I was born and my parents are buried. I was there in 2004 and rode out Ivan. Nasty night for one of the prettiest stretch of beaches. Gulf shores-Pensacola
  21. Wow... Euro landfalling Teddy in Maine now. Looked like a fish storm for sure but now New England and especially coastal Canada needs to keep a weary eye on Teddy.
