The party is over! :( :(

Here's a little paragraph from Gilbert Sebenste's weather page that pretty much sums up things for the midwest. It's truly over now. Winter will be here.

So, after a wet day today, and another on Thursday, temperatures start to
drop as we head into winter. No more 76 degree highs for a lonnnng time
(that felt good on Friday), and no more storm chasing supercell
thunderstorms producing 1" diameter hail, "hook" echoes and 70 MPH winds
through DeKalb county on Halloween weekend (Darn! Oh...uh...I
mean...great! ;-) ).Look for slightly below average temperatures through
the middle of next week, with above average precipitation, coming mainly
today and Thursday.

The party is over.

:cry: :cry: :( :( :cry:
 
I'm two extremes... I like blizzards and I like severe storms, what I don't like is the crap in betwee - Such as a cloudy day with light rain, etc...
 
I dunno. Am still in the severe threat until tomorrow afternoon. :wink:
Have to see if anything comes of this. SPC thinks I may rock and roll later tonight and possibly tomorrow morning. Will see.
 
Several inches of snow fell on Halloween night into early Monday morning, giving us the season's first snowfall... that pretty well solidifies the end of my chasing season.. and even if I wanted to chase, I-70EB from Denver to the Kansas border was closed, so I couldn't get out east easily anyway! :lol:
 
Yup, I've packed it in for winter. We already got snow in the prairies. Some in northern BC also.
 
Either last winter, or the winter before we had tornado watches in Illinois on December 17-19. Actually had some sups...not that anyone chased them beings how its dark mid afternoon in December. They were probably nasty, grungy, whatever you wish...but...it happens.
 
No severe weather is expected during this period, as this time of year normally brings conditions unfavorable for strong convection.

Woohoo!! Here comes the "November outbreak" I talked about earlier!
:D :lol: Remember Houston 11.17.03! Hey, it IS 11.17!

Squall line to my W looks nasty, may bring me something soon. Tried to get the car in the tranny shop.......no go so no chasie for me. :cry:

If it comes near me and looks good, may go out and spot a little locally and see if I can find anything. Sugarland loves to attract 'naders but is a little far for me to chance the car, and myself in the car.

Anyway it's not a cold period especially in Tenensse, Alabama, Georgia, Luisiana,Kentucky...Temperature can still sustain a good convection. Probably with the first good short wave through and the low pressure system associated you'll have some good thunderstorms....Now we can't know when but not all is lost :lol:
Now GFS maps are not very interesting but always change in less than 3 days.
:wink: :lol:
 
What a difference a day makes!

CPC Hazards Outlook updated for 11-17-04:

A major storm is predicted to affect a good portion of the country during the Thanksgiving week. The exact track of the storm is uncertain as the storm moves east, consequently there is the possibility of a wide range of weather conditions for the eastern half of the country, from snow in the Plains and the Great Lakes to severe weather along the Gulf Coast.

Wonder if this is the cold front slated to come through my area late Sunday or into Monday.

I think it's later in the period, towards the Thanksgiving end.

If it makes you feel any better - I had a dream several nights ago that Thanksgiving day feature a rather intense storm with very heavy snow over a large portion of the Midwest and Great Lakes, with the usual severe to the south. I was then left to choose rather to go up north for a few days, or stay and get the brunt of the storm. I chose to go up north figuring the storm would be a miss, and it turned out to be the big one. The dream was very realistic, even moreso than "The Day of Destruction", LOL...

I had this dream before looking at any weather data - No discussions or anything. Hopefully it pans out, and if it looks remotely like what I seen in my dream, I'm stayin here!

I had dreams of chasing naders too, but sure it was part 1 of the movie that messed with my subconscience.
Sure hope your dream doesn't come true early in the day because I will be out "homeless hunting" as my husband puts it. Every Turkey day we make 2 dinners, one for us and one for the homeless. With thier meal, we then make individual plates and put them in coolers and go fill up the 3gal insulated water jug with coffee, grab some styrofoam cups and head out to the streets of Houston and serve folks whom are not as fortunate. This will be our 3rd year doing this and something the hubby really enjoys. He and our oldest ride in back and hand out dinners and coffee while I drive and my daughter helps "spot" them. Last year we handed out 35, going for 40 this year.
It is our small way of giving back. :)

In the PM, let them storms rip!!!!! :D
 
There is a cut off low coming across this weekend. Not sure if it will pose anything far enough south for me. :(
Am taking my vid cam with me tailgating, may get some good video of pandemonium if we get a whopper at anytime after 2pm Sunday.

Outlooks I have seen have my area in a small severe potential until frontal passage sometime Tuesday but the Dallas area looks better. Have had no time to go look at maps and anything else to figure this one out....planning a massive outdoor party for over 200 people is keeping me quite busy! :D

I have no way of telling if something is coming until 7pm. I will be out in the open with no TV or Internet from noon-7pm. Should give someone my cell # in case something good is headed my way. :D
 
Well, things are turning out very close to my dream, and it's kind of eerie. I remember I was excited for the prospects of a pretty good snowstorm for up north, and then things changed, and the storm took a track more towards Cleveland... We shall see...
