The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

The Dewvoid strikes again...

Well, the Dewvoid appears to be prevailing. As I mentioned, our solid stratus deck has done its work to prevent the necessary instability to get things rolling in these parts. In these parts, we refer to that effect as the DEWVOID. The DEWVOID is loosely defined as the apparent weatherlessness that chases storm chaser, Dewdrop. The DEWVOID effect can single handedly kill a high risk PDS threat and render it nothingness.

Check out the wording in the mesoscale discussion just issued for my neck of the woods, and allow me to translate...Feel free to click on the image above if you don't believe me.

MAIN CONVECTIVE BAND CONTINUES MOVING EWD ACROSS THE ERN GULF/SERN CONUS (toward the area of apparent Dewvoidness)...WITH SOMEWHAT STRONGER/MORE CELLULAR CONVECTION FROM SWRN GA SWD (in other words, it is strong to severe away from here). EVEN ACROSS THIS REGION (the Dewvoid region) HOWEVER... WEAK INSTABILITY (what did I tell you?)-- AS INDICATED BY THE LACK OF INLAND LIGHTNING ATTM (and the presence of Dewdrop)-- CONTINUES TO
HINDER THE DEVELOPMENT OF ISOLATED/STRONGER STORMS. LIKEWISE...A DECREASE IN INTENSITY WITHIN THE ONGOING CONVECTION HAS BEEN NOTED OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS (as the system approaches Dew -- gasp, what a surprise!).

WHILE SHEAR PROFILES REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR ROTATION WITHIN ANY SUSTAINED/STRONGER UPDRAFT (as if!)... A CONTINUED DECREASE IN CONVECTIVE INTENSITY IS FORECAST GIVEN THE LACK OF INSTABILITY (Dewvoid effect expected)... AND GIVEN THE STRONGER LARGE-SCALE FORCING CONTINUING ITS NEWD SHIFT AWAY FROM THIS REGION (The Dewvoid will actually be driving the storm away!). WHILE AN ISOLATED/BRIEF TORNADO REMAINS POSSIBLE (HA!) OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS...THREAT SHOULD CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DIMINISH THIS AFTERNOON (as it continues to approach Dew).
Ugh.
