Thunderstorms

Yeah, this don't look very good....



(click for animation)

severe weather alerts abounding...

quote:
The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Warning for...
Central Grant County in central Washington...
this includes the city of Moses Lake...
central Douglas County in north central Washington...

* until 230 PM PDT

* at 141 PM PDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a
severe thunderstorm capable of producing quarter size hail. This
storm was located 7 miles northwest of Moses Lake... and moving
north at 45 mph.

* Other locations in the warning include but are not limited to
Ephrata... laveview park... Soap Lake... Stratford... Coulee City and
Hartline

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This storm will also produce extremely heavy rainfall. If driving
through the storm reduce your speed to lower the risk of
hydroplaning. Also be prepared for ponding of water in low lying
areas.

In addition to large hail and damaging winds... continuous cloud to
ground lightning is occurring with this storm. Move indoors
immediately! Lightning is one of natures number one killers.
Remember... if you can hear thunder... you are close enough to be
struck by lightning.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect until 800 PM PDT Friday
evening for the Panhandle and north central Idaho and eastern
Washington.

Good light show in The Dalles last night, not much today. People are taking advantage of the wind today kiteboarding at The Dalles, Rowena, Mosier and Hood River.

Some of them were flat out moving right along.

Wasn't too bad here after all, the bad parts barely missed us. Lots of wind and rain mostly. Looks like it smacked the crap out of Idaho and the south-western areas from here. Some areas saw 60mph winds and ping-pong ball sized hail with near continuous lightning...eep!

Had about 10-15mins of sideways hail/rain mix around 2:30-2:45 pm though, that was a bit crazy. =)
