  1. I received my first rain in over a month yesterday I figure we got about .3 but it was a beautiful rain. It was in the very low 80s with a breeze. Such a wonderful respite after probably 40 days or more of 90 plus. My grass is burnt. It cracks when you walk on it except for spots that sit in the shade of the house. I was hoping for some rain from Isaias at least but if the forecast continues as is we will not get much at all. But it is still early in the game
  2. Right. The HRR is showing it at Cat 2,when it goes in. Not right now
  3. Hanna is looking very healthy early this morn. It is 3 am. The HRR is showing a 965mb storm hitting(96-110mph) That would be bad for that part of Texas. The rainfall of 15 inches or more is going to be devastating.
  4. Happy 4th group and Steve!!!!!!!!!
  5. Even here in S Georgia the cut off low is having a huge effect. In fact I thought about starting a new thread just on the low. It is mid June and in the next couple of days it will be partly cloudy and N winds 10-15 with highs in the 70's. You just don't find that often THIS FAR SOUTH in mid june. I did notice also that near Charleston S Carolina yesterday they had 6* inches in a 24 hour period. So this thing packs a powerful punch. The hail reports in NE GA were impressive too
  6. Any thoughts Steve on soon to be Cristobal? Strength, direction ? I was just wondering if it meanders a few more hours than predicted would that push it more Nward?
  7. If a Ridge sets up in the Mid west then anything that is tropical in the Gulf will be guided towards Texas /Mexico?
  8. I have been watching the GFS for the last week or so. In the long range it has been fairly consistent in something tropical in nature. A couple of runs nothing, but it has been all over the gulf and timing has been all over the place. I can’t get the Euro on tropical tidbits past 240hours.
  9. Tropical Storm Bertha now
  10. Looks like the disturbance near Charleston is going to swing on shore
  11. There were flakes seen last night in the Smokies, Boone area, probably 4000’ above. Wonder how close it came to N Ga?
  12. Two things about life 1. You have to trust somebody 2. Leave mole hills as is. There are enough mountains already.
  13. Noticed 1st fantasy tropical system for Georgia in last GFS
  14. Steve's song ( Forgive me Billy Joel)
  15. There is a video where all the storms across AL, Ms and Ga are chronicled that day and shown by radar. The morning storms are more linear and surrounded by rain and typical of our area. , But that afternoon as the system moves along clearing occurs and then the super cells appear, and almost every one have the perfect hook, and many the debris balls of powerful twisters. Unlike normal situations these were not rain wrapped and the Cullman Tornado was a monster, a beauty of incredible multi vortexes. The 4ef5's in one day was unheard of... No wonder it is called a 100 year event. It was like we got a taste of Tornado Alley and Dixie Alley mixed together and served up in one storm-- in one area....
