Hah, possible? It hasn't stopped thunder storming where I'm from yesterday until now. I've had at least 30 flashflood warnings lol.

Thanks for the concern/warning though.

Oh yeah ? Are you in St. Louis? Heard they got flooded yesterday and hit again today. I'm more worried about the Tx,AR, and OK area. The sun is out here and supercells are supposed to form

I'm right next to 44, so all the storms go right over my house. We've been in tornados warnings and stuff for awhile. There was some quarter sized hail for a bit this morning. To give you perspective I live on a hill and my yard is still flooded.

Dang sounds like an event we had back in 2006-2007. I live on the bottom of a hill, and still have standing water from a month ago. Hope it clears out soon for you!

Missouri weather is a fickle fickle bitch, that's all I have to say:P. I'm hoping for a 5 minute break to take my dogs out side, they're going stir crazy and need to pee!

Haha I heard a town had a tornado one day and snow the next. Weather this past year has been bipolar. Like our ice storm it was raining freezing rain like a summer storm, and froze our roads for 2-3 days even though the wholebpast week It was in the 70s-80s

The SPC (Storm Prediction Center) is forecasting for a moderate risk of severe weather for the following areas below.  As a avid storm enthusiast and storm chaser when I have time I'd be on this system if I wasn't so busy yesterday and today.   ;)  

 

 

 

 

Here is a snap shot of a tornado warned cell off of the Dallas/Fort Worth VCP80 radar (TDWR).  Also for you weather extremest here at S4GRU I highly recommend PYKL3 Radar for you storm chasers, its a paid app and works wonders.

Heard of 80+Mph Gust, funnel cloud, and CD size Hail. We are supposed to get hit hard In East Texas, I don't think My corolla will handle Large hail very well. I love being able to track it, If the storm get closer before dark I will go to our lake and watch them roll in. Maybe get some good Video!

I have a 2001 Chevy S-10 4X4 ZR2 I use to storm chase, its seen better days especially after the 2011 super outbreak where I had close to softball sized hail hitting my truck... :P   Had to get the windshield replaced twice...what a day that was.

Oh man that was a rough year, Was the hottest Summer I remember. I have only seen up to maybe nickel Sized hail, But have actually had a tornado rip a huge tree up one year at my place, and threw a barn all over a .1 miles away. And saw one summer storm literally rain sideways. I wish I could go up to the plains and chase Tornadoes, It is really hard here In ET with all of the Pines.

Inches of hail at my house. Here's the runoff pile from my neighbor's porch with a banana and my size 13 shoe for scale:

UPDATE APRIL 23, 2014

 

The SPC (Storm Prediction Center) is forecasting for a possible multi-day severe weather event across portions of the central and southern plains Saturday (4/26) and Sunday (4/27)...large hail and strong tornadoes are possible.

 

Note: Depending on how far east the dryline advances the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys could be impacted by this system by Monday given if enough warm convection and instability is in the atmosphere.

May be a good chase day Saturday. We shall see. So long as it stays west of my area so I don't have to go to work.

Ill be on this system by Saturday afternoon given if I can get my work caught up  ;)

 

I'm thinking Western/Central Arkansas will be a good target area and go from there.

Won't be able to go out Sunday, have to be near home to take to the airwaves if things go south in the Ozarks.

Honestly I think if this system holds together there will plenty of chase days from Saturday through Tuesday.

UPDATE APRIL 25, 2014

 

The SPC (Storm Prediction Center) has updated there outlook.  Multi-day severe weather outbreak is possible begining Sunday April 27, 2014 during the afternoon hours where heating will be robust and may last into the night...large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are likely.  The areas of greatest concern are the following: Central and Western Arkansas/Eastern Texas

 

D5 (Day 5) Tuesday has been upgraded and pushed further East well into the Southeast, the potential of a severe weather outbreak appears to be greater at the current time.

 

  Sunday Severe Weather Outlook

 

 

   Day 4-8 Severe Probabilities

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
