Frustrating couple of days watching the CAMs and real time obs while pulling for a storm. At least some are getting decent storms, even if the CAMs show a different solution on every single run lol

The smell sucks?lol

Good for you!
Just getting sprinkles/light rain here in south CP with occasional loud claps of thunder. Better than nothing I guess. At least someone else was fortunate! :)

Well like weatherdude, I only got light rain with some occasional lightning. Had 2 fairly close strikes which shook the Rain Cave. At least it was something different than what we've been dealing with. Glad you got a nice downpour Haris.

Wow an Independent tower crane inverted strike!

Hope no one was up there.

Nm. Upon further inspection, it seems as if the strike was behind the highrise

DFW through the first half of May is now 4.9F above normal. A top 10 warmest May is possible

Heat will move up a gear on Friday when everyone will be in the 90s, some 100s

Picked up a little less than 1/4'' again last night. Slight to decent chances for the next few days.

DFW will tease a record high Friday (96F).

I was wondering the last time we had a record low at the big airport since those are a real rarity nowadays.

The answer is July 20, 2014 (65F). Other months are more surprising to me. January, for instance, hasn't seen a record low since Jan. 20, 1985. heat miser's been in charge for a while lol.

May is half over with nothing in sight for the DFW area at least. The summer thread will be open for business soon as well as summer temps by the end of the week. Yuck nasty. The combination of school, early fall, football and cooler weather is next up. This spring is a serious dud unlike any other I have seen. Summer could be worse with the gifts of 83 degree lows and 104 degree highs. Vomit. Somebody start the Autumn thread already!!

I didn't think May could be this boring. Hard to believe it's not even summer yet. Might as well be with the fantasy hurricane the GFS keeps showing.

Speaking of the end of the 18z GFS has a tropical system moving SE to NW across the state though(all the way from Florida lol) :double:

12z Euro and Canadian Ensembles trended wetter across much of the state for next week as they try to bring a weakness into the region. Let's hope the trend continues and other models join the wet train.

It's too early for this nonsense!

That was a nice change in the ensembles but I am very skeptical. The Euro Weeklies basically continue the current pattern well into June with areas along and east of I35 looking very dry. Good thing the Weeklies have mostly sucked. The MJO would seem to favor more widespread rains than we have seen, so maybe things will trend that way.
