    New Radar?

    This is a non-sequitur question from the OP, but it’s radar related and I did not think it deserves its own thread... What can be the cause of the reflectivity seen off the coast tonight? The reflectivity KDIX displays is not even spatially aligned with what KOKX is showing. It also does not appear like the usual noise provided by bugs or birds over land.
  2. That's exactly what I saw. Rotation was clearly visible near Chalfont as it approached Rt. 309. But the warning came out after the signature started to fade.
  3. A little late, I think. Rotation was clearly visible on radar for a while, but faded by the time the warning went up.
  4. 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.
  5. It's a flaky sleet at the moment.
  6. 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.
  7. It's frustrating how difficult it is to get a low to track nicely with cold air in place for Philly this year.
  8. Buried in the verbiage of handbook rule #45b, there is an exception clause for the immediate Negadelphia MSA region.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. It was a beautiful morning for a kid to pull the fire alarm in my school today.
  13. 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.
