    Wow, thunderstorms were observed right around my area this day! February 2015 was indeed ending with a bang for San Jose, CA and the rest of the Bay Area! A cold low pressure system originating from the Canadian coast had ushered strong instability in the atmosphere for the area. Since of this, scattered thunderstorms had developed around the Bay Area, including our area here in the South Bay. During the morning hours, storm clouds were towering like crazy due to the unstable airmass present. But during the early afternoon hours, that's when things really started to go. Thanks to the afternoon heating from the sun, thunderstorms began to tower. The clear and sunny breaks of blue skies usually help to destabilize the atmosphere even further... My storm chasing adventure this day in summary: I left to go observe the skies just after 1:30 p.m. Storm clouds were towering and blackening already. I then went around Fowler Creek Park and that's when the skies right above started to darken and just to the south, the 'thunderstorm of the century' for our area developed. I just watched and observed the thunderstorm intensify. The skies were very dark above and then the thunder started going, as well as the lightning. The thunder was continues and it was priceless to hear the subtle, constant rumbles of thunder. The rain core, or rain/hail shaft had thickened as time went on and it also began to rain and hail. Of course my adrenaline rush was skyrocketing. Then the rain was coming down so I had to drive right by the parking lot of Fowler Creek Park to continue taking footage of the lightning/thunder without getting wet. The lightning, thunder, moderate rain and hail continued before finally diminishing after 3 p.m. I then headed up to our church and viewed the storm from a higher elevation.. Now I was thinking that I should've just came up here to view the storm since it's better, but it was fine. Being up high, that's when I also saw "snow" on the foothills just to the south. It was actually copious amounts of hail! It was funny since there was only small area of white while the rest of the area was still green. I then took a few more pics of the slowly departing thunderstorm and then called it a day.... although there was also a severe t-storm that had developed around the San Francisco peninsula later by sunset. It was a crazy day for the Bay Area, weather-wise! Glad I got to witness this special day. My storm-loving self has been truly satisfied, despite the fact that I missed another strong t-storm! *Weather scenario/summary: A cold low pressure system had ushered atmospheric instability this afternoon of Saturday, February 28, 2015, causing strong convective scattered thunderstorm development all over the Bay Area. The region had observed (lots of) hail, heavy rain, frequent thunder and lightning..the whole shebang! Lots of hail fell from a t-storm just south of my area and being that it was nearly stationary, it dumped so much hail in one spot that it looked like snow around that area! The spot affected by the hail was nearby my school (EVC)! The copious amounts were enough to coat some hillsides or shall we say, 'hailsides' in white. Also, later by early evening, or around sunset, a briefly intense rotating cell had prompted a severe t-storm warning for San Mateo County shortly before 7 p.m. By Sunday, calmer weather was expected. The low that had brought the wild weather to the Bay Area had weakened as it headed south, but was still close enough to us to bring a chance for a few isolated showers around the hills of the South Bay, especially for regions south of Gilroy. T-storms did still develop along the central coast on Sunday. It was certainly a crazy day weather-wise for the Bay Area on the last day of February! (Saturday, February 28, 2015)

      Indeed, it was one of those VERY rare times when my area gets another good light show...yes, a lightning storm!

                  A low pressure trough and frontal system was moving across Northern California this day with light rain showers. It was rainy and damp when I was headed to my early morning classes this morning. This was a fast moving storm system. The showers had tapered off later in the day, even before noon. I could literally see the clearing right behind the 'cold front', or main frontal system of this weather system while headed home after my classes. This storm wasn't a major rain producer, unfortunately. We were still under a severe/exceptional drought. To make matters worse, we aren't seeing a set up in the weather pattern that would give us the well-known, drought-buster "Miracle March" rains this year... (Pics and video clips taken Wednesday, March 11, 2015 around San Jose, CA.) *Weather forecast as of this day: By Thursday and Friday, high pressure was to be back over our area. Skies were to be mostly clear with a few high clouds and temps would again be back above normal. By Saturday through Monday, the high pressure area was forecast to get pushed southward as the jet stream runs across the Pacific and into the Pacific Northwest. A series of frontal systems were forecast to ride by to our north with the southern end of each one brushing our region. Unfortunately, no significant rainfall was forecasted for much of the state...only light rain showers at the most (around far Northern California).
