    For the past hour it has flipped back and forth between sleet and rain. It's back to sleet again at the moment, but this is the definition of being on the line.

    It's a flaky sleet at the moment.

    Ping, ping, ping. That saddens me because there is not enough fluffy stuff on the ground yet. We're just not allowed to have a snow storm this winter.
  4. It's frustrating how difficult it is to get a low to track nicely with cold air in place for Philly this year.
  5. Buried in the verbiage of handbook rule #45b, there is an exception clause for the immediate Negadelphia MSA region.
  6. I need at least some snow tomorrow, it is only fitting for me to become a new father with some snow falling. We are scheduled to leave for the hospital tonight--well before anything starts, thankfully.
  7. This winter would have it no other way.

    Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    After getting some skiing in I decided to make a stop in the Del. Water Gap area. The wind was legit at the Gap today, but the temps gave me some great photo ops.

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    The consistent storm tracks have been unkind to Lower Bucks County this winter, constantly getting hammered by the warm air advection sector. I enjoyed the couple of brief spells of very cold nights following arctic fronts leading to some icing on the Delaware River, but other than the surprise November snow this season has been very disappointing.

    2/1 can we fluff our way to 1”?

    It was a beautiful morning for a kid to pull the fire alarm in my school today.
  11. What's the landcover like in the area immediately around where you saw the temp spike on 322? Sometimes that can explain things in regards to differences in radiational cooling rates, like susqushawn suggested.
  12. Looks like the area around my house made it to 0°. Speaking of around the house, too bad the water main down the street could not handle things after the arctic front passed through yesterday...

    1° right now. Oh, so close, but not quite 😩
  14. I was impressed with the fact that the temp dropped 10 degrees from the time the squall started to the time it ceased. I'm also impressed with how many pages of excitement a squall line produced in this thread. Shows you what kind of winter we've had so far around here.
  15. I've seen too many people attempt to ride their bikes around campus on many an icy day.
