  1. Today
  2. Temperature dropped quickly at sunset... Definitely has that fall feel.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Well what I mean is, this 90-92 type heat is very MEH. All philly has to do is be sunny most of the day in july under normal circumstances and they usually sniff 90. So why is anything under 95 so remarkable. It seems like that is the new norm. So I use 95+ as heat and in that regard this summer was nto that bad IMO. It was all about the dews
  5. Stopping on to say, WOW, what an A+ day, over.
  6. Over the past 12 months ABE is running significantly warmer relative to average than the other official Mt. Holly sites. I know there's been quite of bit of commercial development in the Lehigh Valley over the past 10 yrs. ASOS running warm? Combination of the two?
  7. Good stuff Tony! Takeaway from this summer will be all strong to severe storms & the multiple monsoon dumps. Heat wise it was a one hit wonder & even that was nothing on par with our epic heat waves of the past. Looks like we're settling in to a typically boring late summer pattern, without tropical influence things can get pretty mundane this time of year.
  8. I expanded my spread sheet to include enso neutral positive/negative events and the wow statistical oddity on how a purely enso neutral Mr. Blutarsky winter has rocked. The outlooks are trending enso neutral:

  10. @mshaffer526 doing victory lap with a perfect score (31/2) as of today and a 90s hiatus on tap. @greg rallsis lurking next. The 90s threat for next week appears meher. Then there is September. The last year PHL went without a 90 degree day in September was 2011. @Parsley could still keep the sleeve of golf balls he does not want.

  11. Well they have the three best players on top. Otherwise, I don't know, it doesn't do much for me.
  12. In terms of the last 30ish years, man heat was close to average, gigiheat greater than average. We are going to shave some off these temps, but this could be the warmest summer since 2016. All the wetness the last two summers had a hand in cutting back the man heat, but also (plus given bathwater ocean temps becoming the new normal) propped up mins slightly more than maxes.
  13. See, I kind of have the opposite taste. Pumking and Warlock are wayyyyy too heavy for me. I actually enjoy the "pumpkin ales", that are a little lighter.
  14. I like the ones that actually have a discernible pumpkin pie taste. Some just have a slight taste of *spice* but not really any *pumpkin*. Not sure whether I’ve tried the Southern Tier. I know I haven’t tried the Warlock - I like stout, but prefer pumpkin ales/lagers. Shipyard’s pumpkin is pretty good (I think it’s called Pumpkinhead but I can’t remember for sure).
  15. Agreed! I love fall, but don’t want to rush to the end of summer either. Seeing pumpkin beer, Oktoberfest and other fall beers out already is depressing. And it’s ridiculous to have to think about buying this stuff before you’re in the mood for it, but if you wait until you’re in the mood it will all be gone! It’s like seeing Christmas stuff in the stores at Halloween. Buying beer has become like buying clothes, always one season ahead.
  16. It was a great week to rent at LBI. Missed the worst of the heat being at the shore with somewhat lower temps, cooling breezes off the water, and spending time in the water. But still on Thursday, after a couple hours on the beach in the morning (did not go in the ocean that day - it was only 67 degrees!), an hour fishing at high noon, and a nap outside, I had had enough of the heat and sun. Much easier to face the end of a summer vacation when it feels like fall 🙂
  17. A wonderfully cool 57F with a 54 DP. That light breeze makes it feel a bit cooler than it is. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Interestingly, it was 69 degrees at 7 AM this morning. The temperature dropped the whole way to 63.1 around 11:15 during the heaviest of the rain showers, and then rose for the rest of the day after that. This feels like early autumn....just incredible. This will easily be the nicest weekend we've had in months.
  19. Nice sunset. Sleeping tonight with windows open, even nicer.
  20. Last week
  21. .29" here in Sellersville today. Craptastic ride home from D.C today. Raining down there last night and all day today. Took almost 6 hours, traffic delays and accidents were ridiculous.
