An excerp from a MSN article titled "River in the sky"
Snow levels in the Cascades are initially expected to be very high, above 10,000 feet, but lower as the week wears on. On Mount Baker (elevation around 10,000 feet), the Weather Service is predicting a remarkable 87 to 111 inches (7 to 9 feet) of snow through Thursday — with more after that.

Experimental GOES-16 one-minute visible satellite pictures show a distinct 25-30 n mi wide eye with several mesovortices rotating within with eye. The aircraft have not sampled the northeastern eyewall where the strongest winds were measured shortly before 1200 UTC this morning, but the Air Force plane will be entering the eye in that quadrant momentarily. A peak SFMR wind of 154 kt was reported, with a few others of 149-150 kt. Based on these data the initial intensity is set at 155 kt for this advisory.
Will be interesting to see what data the recon aircraft finds when it punches the NE eyewall.
Might get that 100 degrees on Monday afterall. Should be the last day of triple digits this year however.
Guidance still sold on a very warm to hot September pretty much all month with only a couple brief breaks. 80s to low 90s would be dominate during the hot periods, like 85 to 93 degree stuff. Oh, and drier than a bone.
If it gets to a 100* on Monday, the NWS is sure gonna bust badly, like by 8*
I actually think Tulsa office was a bit tardy on the first warning last night. And that was the tornado that did all the damage near I-44 & 41st street. Double check me Chris, but just looking at radar scans that mesovortex tightened up into a warn-able couplet, in my opinion, as early as 1:18 (I think this is about when the tornado started) and certainly by 1:20. It had a possible TDS at 1:20 and a probable TDS at 1:21. Unless I missed it the warning did not go out until 1:25 though. After that they were definitely on top things.
I won't attach the stories as they are other affiliates, but there are apparently some questions out of the Tulsa area concerning the fact that the tornado warning sirens were never activated. Per the Tulsa EMD, the tornado touchdown was at 01:19hrs, the warning was not issued by the NWS until 01:25hrs, and the city of Tulsa did not sound the sirens as by 01:25hrs the tornado had cleared the city and was in Broken Arrow.
Anyone else having problems with getting their TOMATOES to ripen? All my local farmers around here have plenty of tomatoes on the vine just all green not turning red... I Have to Go to Carbondale Illinois Regularly To Get A Good HomeGrown Tomato to sell at my store...Just Wondering if Backyard Gardens are having the same issues it's almost late July now and still haveing supply/demand problems??? 🍅🍅🍅🍅 the ones I'm getting from an Amish community in Carbondale Illinois are fantastic it's just a long drive for home grown tomatoes!
Horrible year for me and tomatoes. Haven't harvested a single good tomato. Army worms had there way and now they are getting bad spots before they ripen.

From the NHC:
Interests along the U.S. Gulf Coast from the central Texas coast to the western Florida Panhandle should monitor the progress of this system, as a tropical storm watch or warning could be needed for portions of this area later today.

SPC acknowledging the possibility of tropical influence in there 4-8 day Convective Outlook:
Large spread/variability exists in medium-range models for the potential development and subsequent evolution in the forecast of a tropical convective system in the Gulf of Mexico. This scenario will undoubtedly influence the synoptic pattern east of the Rockies and potential corridors for severe thunderstorms.
gonefishin: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.

snowday_lover: I was thinking this was to start late tomorrow night...are we thinking earlier? I'm in Ironton, so I'm not holding my breath for much per the maps that have been drawn up. I'm thinking a little bit of sleet and frz drizzle. Is that correct? It's a balmy 18
