    Right on the edge of that. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow!

    It snowed this morning. A lot. Like, ground-carpeting a lot. Hopefully it's the last sortie of General Winter, and we won't get more snowfall 'til next autumn.

    It's quiet outside. Too quiet.
    Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some storms could be severe, with hail and damaging winds. High near 53. Breezy, with a southwest wind 18 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

    We were projected to get a little rain tonight, just a sprinkle here near LAX from the last forecast I saw, but we just had torrential rainfall. Truly, about as heavy of rainfall as I’ve ever seen for the span of a couple of minutes. The intensity has dropped off from the peak but there’s still a steady rain shower with very short bursts of heavier rain.

    It was dumping so hard it woke me up.

    Under a tornado watch right now. It's one of those wildly unpredictable fronts where a supercell could organize upwind from your house within minutes.

    I'd just like to reiterate how much I resent relying on the current storm chaser culture for most of my severe weather coverage. It's a real bummer worrying about imminent tornadoes when all the live feeds are filtered through disaster perverts who are audibly aroused at the prospect of me dying in the wreckage of my home. It would be neat to have a qualified meteorologist who said out loud that they hoped the incoming front would fizzle out and everyone could go back to watching NCIS or whatever.

    Love the sun and 80 degree weather in Ohio after the 30 degree days earlier in the week

    But there’s 20 degree days coming up this week

    Look, Heavenly Hail Corporation, proud manufacturer of hail and hail-adjacent precipitation (serving the American Midwest since its inception!), kinda had financing trouble in the last decade and haven't been able to update their hail factories to produce Blu-Ray-sized hail. They've apologized for the inconvenience.

    Looks like the cap is holding strong. Good luck with those blue balls, weather perverts, keep tweeting about how sad you are that I still have shingles.

    Goddamn. I am sad for those folks and their houses, but I am super jazzed for all the meteorology students right now. This is the kind of intuitive data Bill Paxton's Pepsi cooler full of sensor balls could only have dreamed about.

    Isn't 140F literally uninhabitable? Not figuratively literally, literally as in your body can no longer expel the heat and will enter eventually heat stroke and die if this temperature is maintained even with adequate hydration and assuming moderately humid air.

    It's wet-bulb temperatures around 95F that can kill you since sweating will no longer cool you. Which at 140F air temp is anything over 20% humidity. Even a desert will typically have humidity at or above that.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.
  • JragghenJragghen Registered User regular
    Surface temp isn't air temp, air temp in those 140 places would be more 120. These are temps India regularly reaches, by my understanding.

    Just usually shortly before the monsoons arrive, not in April.

    This honestly just feels like the lead-up to a cheap jump scare.

    At least 13 homes have already burned down, at about 200 acres. It’s windy across all of SoCal and that’s not helping.

    there's one in New Mexico that's topped... 40k acres? something like that.
