Tropical Storm Arthur has officially developed! It's a relatively weak tropical storm with 45 mph winds. It will cause some rough surf along SC beaches and bring some wind and rain to the Outer Banks of NC.

They're calling for rain and thunderstorms 5 days in a row where I am. We might have some flooding and saturated ground as a result. I'm not sure if all this rain will be coming from Arthur or if it's from another system. I think the way the tropical storm is rotating off the coast of SC and GA is drawing moisture up from the Gulf of Mexico. That means inland SC will get a long lasting trail of rain this week.

Hurricane season officially begins June 1, so a named storm this early is kind of ominous. I've heard rumors that 2020 could be a rough hurricane season. We shall see...

Things are finally gonna get close to hot here as well this weekend. Maybe not as hot as down there in Israel @Dor123, but
hot compared to how things have been in the past so far this year here. 85 degrees in the forecast on Saturday here, I think. (Or maybe Sunday)
FINALLY. However, storms are in the forecast for Monday, last I checked.

They had a new record high of 92F in down in Denver on Monday .. it was upper 80's out where I am. (and thankfully very little humidity)
Saw a nice Supercell Thunderstorm off in the distance yesterday. Ofcourse had to get out the camera, zoom in & take some pic's

@Xmaslightguy... there's Mammatus clouds involved in that, so I'm guessing that storm was a monster. Mammatus clouds are typically
a sign of a very severe storm. If it really was a Supercell, it's not surprising to see Mammatus clouds in the picture. Awesome pic

*Edited in:*
Over here we are gonna get a nice dose of Summer this weekend. Mid 80's forcasted all weekend. My bike will be out of the garage each time
I leave to go to work during the night. There is a threat of classic pop up thunderstorms during the weekend, so my eyes will be
scanning the skies REAL good this weekend.

We had heavy rain Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week. A total of about 5 and a half inches of soaking steady rain. Unfortunately, I did have some water issues. Some drywall near a window crumbled and let in rain water in my house. Water had collected inside the table and began to drip into the living room. The basement was a disaster area.  Water all over the floor that I had to suck up with my shop vac. I removed about 7 gallons of water and ran some fans in the basement overnight to dry out. I had water pull under the washing machine and the HVAC unit. Thankfully neither of those shorted out! No damage to the floor or any furniture either, but it was still a big mess to clean up. Unfortunately thereís no avoiding flooding in the basement with heavy rain like this.

Memorial Day weekend might bring some exciting scattered thunderstorms. Canít wait to get a beer and sit on my porch to watch the storms roll in  8)

@CEB1993, keep an eye on that flooding as well though... severe thunderstorms will of course bring very heavy rain with them,
much heavier than the average shower lol
That will be hell for the basement at this point unless you've got that dry wall fixed.

Yep, it would be a different scene if those storms produced a flash flood or hail! Funny how some storms can be so soothing and nice to watch, and some cause so much trouble. I discovered that when the ground gets saturated from multiple days of rain, water into the basement. I donít want to be hiding from tornadoes or dealing with another mess in the basement on my days off! Itís a 50% chance or scattered thunderstorms Sunday and Monday. I have a bad feeling the few storms that develop will be quite strong, perhaps supercells. SC has been hammered with bad storms this season, so this may be more of the same.

@suzukir122:
Yep, its pretty much a classic supercell :)
Also note the large overshooting top above the anvil .. indication that thing had a good strong updraft in it. (nice lightning show after dark too)
If this is the same storm I saw on radar (and one that a bunch of stormchasers were after, it may have also dropped a couple small/weak tornadoes). I'm trying to verify that what I saw & pictured there is infact the same one...because that storm on radar was pretty far away.

@CEB1993:
I saw all that storm/rain down your way on the weather maps.
Hopefully you can get that water leak fixed so you don't get anymore water in the basement :o

Last night around 6PM, it started getting really windy and loud out. Then about 30 minutes later we had a rainstorm. There were a few loud thunderclaps and it last about an hour.

Today I thought it was going to rain since it got quite hot out and this afternoon around 5, I saw dark clouds closer to downtown, and even a thunderbolt struck. But we never got any rain. The rain chances for this weekend, are increased, so we may get some storms with the warm weather.

Storm explosion around Dayton Ohio. Nothing severe yet but if we keep getting sunshine, that could change.
I haven't seen multiple thunderstorms pop up like this in a long time around here.

Last night around 6 it got windy again and lightning and dark clouds in the distance. It blew in and it was as if two storms came together. We got 3 inches of rain and there was some loud thunder.

Then tonight around 9, it rained again hard, then it died down to a drizzle, then picked up again and this time there was lightning. Nothing on the radar at the moment. 40% chance tomorrow. It was around 91 today.

Over here the thunderstorms that developed all formed into a line that weakened significantly as
it passed through Dayton, so the entertainment was minimal at best. Ahh well.
A little bit of strengthening took place just to our south, so I heard a bit of thunder during that,
but unfortunately we didn't get much when the initial storm passed. Barely even any thunder.
But since I've got such a wide view, I managed to see unorganized Scud clouds from time to time while
the base cloud passed. That was the majority of the entertainment.

No more severe weather for this weekend and first part of next week here. Heh... it's motorcycle time. 8;)

It was a bit cloudy today, but cleared up this afternoon with sun out. Right now it's raining though, nothing heavy, and no lighting. Will see what happens tonight. It was hot enough for a thunderstorm today.
