Weather To Suffer The Slings And Arrows

Inside the bull's eye: what is this? A mini-hurricane?

So I will be sitting in a three hour meeting at the library this morning on “using social media to promote your organization or business” or something to that affect, while the storms roll through. So longer posts pending will have to wait.

We’ve been blessed with flowing creeks this late winter, even though statistically we’re running a few inches behind for the year. The water table needs to be charged before we head into the usually dry summer–if there is such a thing as “usually” anymore when it comes to the bigger-weather picture.

This screen capture is from this morning’s first-thing glance at the day’s atmospheric offerings. I cannot explain the extreme severe circle of storms near the Virginia coast. It does not seem to have been associated with any weather warnings. Anybody over Richmond way to say if this thing ate a giant crater near Richmond?

  1. I can’t say for sure what’s happening in Richmond, but I recall reading somewhere that long-distance radar suppresses or can’t pick up close range precipitaion, so it appears dry around the radome in this manner. I’m guessing the image is a composite radar summary of the area. I could be completely wrong.
