The problem with warm fronts and supercells is that for every event (hi, Pilger) that occurs on the bigly dewpoint/cape side/straddles the boundary, like 18 occur on the other side.

Up to the mid-80's in St. Cloud now. Rapid destabilization ongoing.

Yeah I'm thinking back to 5/20 again with those high-end dewpoints and parameter space and nothing happened. I don't remember any big tornado event with near 80 dewpoints. Maybe Plainfield?

Cool, I'm planning to fly in on the 4th. Should have at least one good day, and then I'll get to finally meet you in person on one of the other days.

what days are you out of town? I am planning to come to Arizona first two weeks of August and I want to make sure I arrive in that window.

Yeah it's definitely possible. I'm not sold on tornadoes today. But if they happen... whew that parameter space.

One thing to watch is that the cold pool left behind by morning storms is fairly stout (73 temps near St. Cloud). But the boundary is cooking right now and the sun angle is high this time of year. Need to watch how the boundary modifies and advects north next few hrs.

Yeah it's pretty ridiculous to see this kind of flow in mid-summer. Jet has been anomalously juiced this year.

Something could definitely go wrong (auto-MCS'ing, the warm front being sharper than expected)... but it's hard to ignore 50 kt of 700mb flow in JULY with MLCAPE north of 6000 J/kg and dewpoints pushing 75-80.

Warm front events rarely come through, but the area north of MPX looks really impressive today.

32.7 0-3km EHI. Close to Minneapolis at 21Z tomorrow. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.

'Tis the season of maxi-EHI soundings in thermonuclear CAPE along the warm front that ends up insta-MCS or capped.

HAHA. It's not a bad idea. Though at this point in my life meeting people is not the difficult part. I'm thinking about focusing on doing things that would make me more attractive. (Not that dance wouldn't do that too.)

Given this is SF, I'm sure there at least a few guys at every dance class explicitly to find a girl (and not really genuinely there to learn dance). I don't think I'd ever go to a dance class to do anything but to learn dance. The alternate reason feels disingenuous.

100% is a little overkill 😂 ...but agree meeting people in real life is the way to go.

If we consider that there's a 1/10 chance of a relationship/something deeper given a date, that's a 1/100,000 chance of a relationship for every sweep. There's about 800,000 people *total* in the city of San Francisco. Apps are an incredibly inefficient way of meeting people.
