Or the intro to "Bonanza."
Not anymore. I just looked.
It's the Chinese! They're tunneling through from the other side!
Just cloud tops...the storms are under there and sporadic. no more rain please 7+ inches last week was enough. I can't even dig my post holes 'cause the water table is too high! :-/
Global warming alarmists have been warning us for years that a huge thunderstorm would destroy Wisconsin.
You beat me out of the gate, Brando!
We're all gonna die!
I put the map up on Instapundit too, where I'm guestblogging next week, so feel free to post the apt quip over there too.
Yancey Ward:"Global warming alarmists have been warning us for years that a huge thunderstorm would destroy Wisconsin."Weird. I don't find that on this excellent list of phenomena connected to global warming:http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm
It's the digital thermometer effect. They're very accurate until a bit somewhere at the high end is wrong, and then you find the temperature is 1048646.03 degrees.That's smoothed out in space a little and then a contour map is drawn.
It's a half hour later (11:45 Central) and the map has more green and yellow, almost no red and purple and vermillion. It's the weather, for Pete's sake; it changes.
It looks like an enormous zit eruption. In Madison, Wisconsin.
Brings back memories of more than a few of those educational 16mm films they showed us in grade school.
Is that the remains of the tropical storm (Bill, I think his name was)? Last I heard he was moseying through Kentucky.
JPS,I know you are making fun of that list, but just yesterday I was assaulted by an amorous cat.
Hmmm. Is that a vortex?
Weather Underground uses software to assemble a continent-scaled map from data gathered by literally hundreds of separate doppler radar installations. The image Althouse captured is what happens when that software crashes. They've rebooted the app and now the maples much less insane.
Maybe Weather Underground is getting temperature data from hardwood tree rings. Much more accurate, USUALLY, than softwoods.
Climatologist or modeler-caused catastrophe.
@Graham: No. Bill is way out over the Atlantic (I'm not even sure he's still identifiable as a feature (I've not looked), although he was on Saturday over the northeast)The question for later this afternoon: can the atmosphere re-destabilize enough? The wind profile is very favorable for severe weather.
Brando wins Althouse today.
