hard to say, but you might just get a break in the weather at about the right time. however, i was looking at the national weather maps last night (among other things, i'm a weather geek), and there seemed to be a lot of tornado-like activity going on in Texas generally. looks like it stuck around...

You know...

There's some really, really good lift under those red bits... trouble is, it's a wee bit turbulent.

Re: You know...

and what goes up, must come down... as in the downdrafts associated with that lift...

It did clear up, but it didn't matter - we got over 6 inches of rain at the field in less then 12 hours. It's a grass strip. Apparently, you couldn't walk on it, let alone fly off it.

And apparently a tornado touched down at DWH, about 7 miles from me, but no damage. They had one a year or so ago that dropped 13 hangers on top of their planes....

that same front is now about three hours to the west of me, moving slowly eastward. while the radar is showing some heavy rain associated with it, all the "interesting" weather (like the severe thunderstorm watch, or the "MESO" radar tag) is a lot further south.

fronts like this one tend to lose energy as they get closer to the ocean, so what looks like severe weather usually winds up just being a little more rain by the time it reaches me. and even when the system holds together, and there are severe thunderstorms and even the occasional small tornado associated with it, there's something about my immediate location that causes the line of storms to develop a break in it. i've lost track of the times i've seen heavy weather immediately to my north and south, while all i saw was some rain, or not even that. i'm only two miles from what used to be called Bell Labs, but i don't think they're working on weather control...

p.s. - whatever LJ "style" you're using, it doesn't seem to want to obey the style override for posting comments, which usually means your comments page crashes my browser.

I always thought weather was interesting, but I never really learned much about it until I started flying.

I'm using the S2 stuff, with a custom layout. Is there some way I can reproduce what you're seeing, so I can fix it?
