Delicious weather today. More please!
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

Meanwhile, the northern plains woke up to single digits this morning for an icy April Fool's joke.  We just thought spring was coming early in February.

And that is why no one lives there.

That, and they have no trees.

Thats why i like google maps you can like look at sights all around the world but its so strange (for me anyways since ive never traveled) to actually see some of these locations. its almost like a new world like its so flat and even the dirt looks different in lots of places vs around this area. Like i look at them pictures like oh i bet floods would be bad or storms would be but thing is they dont really see storms like we do because of the locations ect so it would actually be boring there. I mean im sure they have weather events we dont get here ect but idk being in a flat area like that with very little population and trees and bush's would creep me out. Reminds me of like how a horror movie would be or something.
Snow, flood and storm lover.

That is what makes it perfect storm chaser terrain.  There is nothing to block the view of the storm.  It is also what makes it Blizzard Alley because there is nothing to block the wind from drifting the snow everywhere.

Thank you for that elegant yet subtly nuanced assessment and the intricate sense in which you intended it.

In it's own way it is uniquely beautiful, but give me Tennessee and trees.

The low-level shear is pretty potent north of I-40 so although this looks to be a squall line perhaps QLCS type of storm mode it is a situation where we could see some tornado spinups along the line.  It is probably enough to warrant its own thread if anyone wants to go ahead and do that.

Every model has snow next weekend.  Some runs have been big for Tennessee/ NC. This set up in April ?  Really ?
