Lol I guess that person isn't claustrophobic. I'd be afraid of wind or debris turning that bad boy on tumble dry

So... the old Bamaweather.com domain. Been down for many years I know. But there used to be some photos and other data from the November 10, 2002 outbreak and aftermath that I haven't been able to find anywhere else in the years since. The photos aren't on the Internet Archive. It's a longshot but if anyone happens to have the pictures that used to be on the site for that event, I'd be super stoked to get 'em. It's hard to write a detailed article on an event with very little documentation.

The weather in Alabama and Mississippi was sometimes terrifying but up here in West Central Oregon, so close to the chilly coastal waters, we hardly get thunderstorms. (Some do occur and, VERY rarely, can even be severe.)

I do so miss the Gulf. (In non-severe scenarios, that is.)

Anyway, I was reading the last sentence of this current Day 2 outlook, and said "Cool!" Then, "Wait! What am I saying???!!!"

..Pacific Northwest...
A strong shortwave trough is expected to move into the coasta ln Pacific Northwest late Saturday morning/early afternoon. Dewpoints west of the Cascades will likely be around 50 deg F throughout the Willamette Valley ahead of the main frontal band. This low-level moisture coupled with cold mid-level temperatures may result in just enough instability for a few stronger storms. Primary threat with these storms will be damaging wind gusts. A very low-probability (i.e. less than 2%) tornado threat exists as well.
Anyway, thought people might be interested that there are places where a 50-degree dewpoint can count in tornado formation, however unlikely the possibility may be. (Will have my tablet/phone cameras ready, just in case one comes nearby -- don't have the courage to go out and chase these things and admire those who do.)

I found this interesting. A Mississippi State meteorology student surveyed 4,000 people to gauge their understanding of the SPC's convective outlook definitions.

I'm over this winter. It was a colossal disappointment here locally with a yearly total of 4" or less (compared to our average of 32") and now it won't warm up. Maybe some flurries tonight and then maybe another dusting on Friday night. Higher elevations along the border could pick up a couple inches Friday night.
 
We get more rain in the summer in Alabama than we used to. It used to be tiny pop up showers that were 80 miles apart. Now, we get either an upper low that brings multiple days of widespread rain and cool temps or when we get summertime thunderstorms, they come in huge clusters like the ones this past Saturday. I want it to be hot and dry, so that maybe I can use my pool and boat this summer.
