    One big positive is we have a guy like Dr. Fauci working for us, clear that he is phenomenal. Bloomberg channel ran an interview they did with him last year before this mess & hard to believe but I came away even more impressed. He personally treated one of the Ebola patients & seeing him with his arm around & hugging her when she was discharged was priceless.

    The GOES 16 1-minute mesoscale floater just happened to be zoomed in on the center of the coastal storm this morning...very photogenic storm this time around

    to follow up again for clarity - a clinical trial will be necessary to gain the new indication....these traditionally take more than a couple years but since the safety study (Phase I) was already completed for approved products like these it will move a bit quicker as the FDA has really accelerated their approval processes as seen with the amazing turn around on the test kits

    Just a correction - any physician can prescribe any drug that has been approved by the FDA....including the above...a doctor is allowed based on their own experience to prescribe a product "off label" meaning even thought it is not indicated. This is very common. When I was a Pharma sales director we had a couple products that enjoyed more sales for the "off label" use than the prescribed use. However, as a Pharmaceutical sales representative you cannot "detail" a physician on a non-approved indication. I hope this helps folks understand that even before a clinical trial using currently approved products they can immediately be used for some other disease if the physician deems it appropriate or an only option.

    I'll take 50/50 today. Checking the models, it appears that storm to our south may be a bit further south/east than anticipated a few days ago + its helping usher in some drier air from the north. Doubt we escape instability clouds as the day progresses but all in all, it's improvement. With things the way they are right now, I'll take any positive trends, even minor ones.

    Saw on twitter that the UWash projection site I posted assumes nationwide adoption of effective social distancing. So on the optimistic side - something to shoot for.

    Sobering day of many ahead unfortunately, a 4K rise in confirmed cases. Seven states with 1K or more new cases today. A new high, really new low, in daily deaths. NJ alone has about 3K positive pending not counted in the official count yet. The only encouraging news (this was shown at the press conference) is that Italy's number of new cases was again only around 4K and they had over 1K of cured cases. I want to go to bed with a happier thought so going to assume this is one of the smallest net differentials they have had in a long while. I did ask a former NWS SOO who is alot better with stats than me if there is an approximate lag time between Italy and us.

    After today's dreary day Chester County PA we will finish with our 10th warmest (46.2) average monthly temperature for March since records began in 1894. Of note 4 of the 5 warmest March's on record happened before 1950 back - back when we had a warmer March climo....the top 5 are below: 1921 - 51.5 1945 - 51.3 2012 - 49.5 1903 - 48.4 1946 - 48.0

    Not yet on Remicade/Humira/Enbrel and all that class but I have heard the MFGs of those products are hearing some success stories in RA/Crohn's Disease patients who contracted the virus but did not advance....Tony I am growing increasingly confident that we are getting ahead of the curve here with multiple existing products that might work and the new agents being worked on - fingers and toes are crossed!!

    This is New Jersey this morning, it is better than the one I posted on Saturday and I am praying the social distancing/figures last several days is the reason it is trending in a better direction.

    Hey Icicleman....what I meant in meteorological terms was slight and I do mean slight or very shallow up slope - the shallow and weak up slope flow from sea level up against hills over 850 feet against the Piedmont Plateau which rises in the west and northwest philly burbs can.... in some cases create a very shallow fog/drizzle layer. The precise direction, depth, intensity, and moisture content of the up slope occurs when moist air such as what happened over the last couple days with a prolonged low level east southeast fetch off the Atlantic is forced upwards over the rising terrain of the Piedmont Plateau can either slightly enhance or cause clouds and some drizzle....clearly more prominent over NE PA and NW NJ with elevations well over 1500 ft but can and does occur at lower elevations given the right dynamics. Let me know if this make sense - thanks!!

    Even though we can't go anywhere, I was supposed to be returning a car lease in 2 days. Since the dealerships are closed for this type of transaction, I have an extra car to drive for a bit. I guess I also have extra car insurance for a month too, but that is much cheaper than the lease payment.

    Spring has sprung. My second favorite time of year. Sun feels warm, everything is blooming and temps are perfect for walking, but you don't have to deal with the hornets and humidity yet.
