    Hey everyone! Spotter, here. I'm in an elevated risk area but not the moderate or high, thank goodness. Today is a significant day. We're just waiting for it to blow.

    The tornado watch issued this afternoon is only the second time in SPC history that has a 95% risk level for all categories: tornado, wind and hail. The other instance was in Alabama on April 27, 2011.

    It's also only the 23rd time the SPC has issued a high risk category for tor since 2010. The last time was over two years ago.

    And then there's the flooding threat.

    Significant alert day for TX and OK (see other thread). Also, mods could we get KS added to this thread/group? We seem to fit here better than the other one. Thanks!

    Colorado has had a strange summer. June was cool and wet and we even had snow. July was hot and wet and August has been hot and dry. Next week looks like we might cool down just a bit.

    Hope everyone in Colorado is ready for our first snow storm of the season. Calling for up to a foot of snow in Eagle County.

    Called for a foot of snow here in the high country but don't think will get that.

    We got about 8 inches here south of Denver. A few days ago the wind gusts were more of a problem then the snow IMO. Now it’s just icy, mostly on the side streets. Haven’t had a chance to watch the updated forecasts because I just walked in from work. Still predicting more snow tonight? Setting my alarm for early just in case!

    Wasn't it about this time last year the Bomb Cyclone hit?
