Hope this post will go through. Unfortunately, I have to close up my blog due to serious issues with this new laptop as well. I've spent way too many hours trying to fix increasing issues; only to find that I now have to reformat all to its original state. (Back to Windows 8). Apparently, my driver cannot be upgraded to accommodate the new Windows 8.1 upgrade which really ticks me off! It's taken me so long to first configure the many Windows updates, then install needed software programs, do upgrades, via lengthy phone calls with various tech. supports, etc... and deal with the extreme sensitivity of this keyboard. So much frustration with the many vanishing posts!!
Hopefully, before the summer's end, I'll be able to find a different, better brand of laptop that is equally affordable but easier to use and has Windows 8.1 already preinstalled. Until then, I'll have to continue missing my access to the internet and, especially, daily blogging with close WU friends
Hope everyone's summer ahead is a decent one and that the weather will cooperate throughout for all leisurely pursuits! We were lucky last night to escape any of those serious t'storms and flooding affecting regions affecting further North of us. Unfortunately, the current humidity factor has us resorting to the use our air-conditioner and circulatory fan. Nevertheless, all 'n all, the forecast ahead looks to be pretty good with a hot start to next week. It's certainly better than the frigid cold of winter!
If anyone asks, please forward this message along to others, as it's becoming increasingly difficult for any posts to take.
This is a composite plot of the radar summary, echo tops, storm movement, TVS and MESO signatures and watch boxes. The radar summary is color coded by precip type. Greens, yellows and reds are rain. Pinks are mixed precipitation (freezing rain, sleet). Blues are snow. NOTE: Radar data is susceptible to a phenomena called anomalous propagation. This generally happens at night and appears as a area of 20 dBZ echos (darkest green) which is centered around each radar site and expands with time. To try and reduce the problem, low echo values near the radar sites have been removed.

Sorry I haven't been online for awhile, but haven't had the means to fix or replace my old broken computer these past couple of months. Presently, I'm using the computer of a relative 20 miles away. Hope everyone is well, had a wonderful holiday season and will have a decent year ahead. Hope to rejoin you all before the end of the month. In the meantime, be safe and remain well!
