    Weather guys are reporting damage all over the place with 100 to 115mph winds. 1 confirmed touch down so far. Baseball sized hail in places.

    Fucker ripped right through my hometown and my parents neighborhood. Bad enough damage that they asked me to drive up and help clean.

    Not much house damage around a city of 8000, but god damn nearly every tall standing structure or tree was torn to bits and thrown around through the entire city

    There's long standing corn fields that were completely flattened akin to straight line winds too

    I'm sure it's been asked before but what are the better weather apps to use? Not for like storm tracking and stuff, just standard run of the mill planning your weekend stuff.

    I was using WTForecast but mainly just because it was funny.

    They're all mostly the same... Computer made forecasts. I'd be pretty leery of the apps that give you rain chances down to the minute. Recipe to be annoyed a lot. The more well-known (weather channel, AccuWeather, weather bug) will all do what you need.

    The nws doesn't have an app, but you can save mobile.weather.gov to your home screen and it'll behave like a web app (if you use chrome). It doesn't notify you when a warning is issued, however.

    I'd say the biggest thing for an app is to make sure you can adjust notifications so you know when you're under a severe, tornado, or flash flood warning

    It was wild to me that I would look at two different apps and how different their forecasts were for the same area and time.

    Speaking of alerts. I received a flash flood alert at work while everyone else recieved one about an escaped convict that killed a prison guard. What are you trying to say Verizon?

    I will say that those apps will tend to struggle most with active weather. If high impact weather is expected (severe, tropical, winter weather), your best bet would be to keep an eye on what the trusted local TV Mets and nws are saying. They can often give more nuance to the forecast then a computerized app. Just my opinion

    lomcevak saw that the el Nino is cycled out to enso neutral for the winter. Bad news for the dakotas?

    I'm not super well versed in that stuff, but it would seem to pretend more "normal"winter. The next month or so looks about average. But we'll probably get our first snow in like 3 weeks

    I'm on our long range forecast team at work, and an ENSO neutral winter season is what we have been leaning towards. For the Dakotas, we've generally been going with a warmer than normal start to late fall/early winter (say October-December), and then turning cooler than normal on average for January-March. Precip generally looks to be near normal overall.

    Yeah he posts videos of him screaming at flash floods before snow season starts. Then he has videos screaming at white out conditions during blizzards while he drives

    I ran into him in Hawaii of all places a few years ago. He was there giving a speech to kids about water spouts. We ended up getting shitfaced bouncing around a few bars. He's intense to say the least

    Had this monster dropping 3" hail along i90 heading right into rapid before a weak storm merged into it and wrecked the inflow. Could have been ugly
