    enhanced risk of severe storms 4/14-4/15

    I'm in Towamencin. We had intense rain and a few rumbles. I called my parents, who live in NE Philly to warn them. I could hear their wind - it sounded insane. My mom says it's died down quite a bit just now.

    Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Hanging in Huntingdon Valley right now with one hell of a gully washer. Nice. Very heavy rain, few gusts, lovely thunder and lightning. All around a very nice storm for March. Also a great time for my WU app to stop working. 😔

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    It looked like about 5" in Towamencin before I hit the hay last night. NWS has a public rwading of 4.8 for Kulpsville (little town within Towamencin). Only needed a 2 hour delay dor schools. I rent and am not allowed to have any weather equipment outside. 😒😩 Otherwise, I'd be set up with a bunch of things and I'd join CoCorahs. I'll see if some BucksCo friends are interested on joining. Here's my pretty snow pic from this morning. A bunch of trees lost branches overnight. My property company will cut an entire tree down if it loses a branch, so Spring clean up will suck. 😔

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    33° in Towamencin. Moderate snowfall - heavy flakes. I was just out and at times it felt like rain mixed in. Water is pouring dien the gutters. About 3" on my car, but appears less on the ground. Totally unscientific, though. Got my kids outside with the sled I bought today.

    Still coming down heavy in Towamencin. Heavy, wet snow. It has been steady for hours now, but it doesn't seem to have accumulated as much as I thought I would. EPAWA sent me a notification (and I need to remember to cancel my subscription to that) saying my area will see 6 to 9 inches. We'll see. With some of the discussion here, I am tempted to kick my kids out to play now in case it disappears by morning. 😰 0303192024.mp4

    Towamencin. Snow started about 2 hours ago and has been coming down moderate to heavy. Coated grass and trees pretty quick, but a lot of asphalt is still clear with the exception of sidewalks right here. I do want to be honest and say I bought my kids a new sled today. I am not sure how that will affect snow totals. 😉 0303191747.mp4
  8. I need to ask Santa for a weather station next Christmas. Gusts are coming in waves here, too. Just had a very dramatic gust about 10 minutes ago that made me jump out of my seat. Really wish I had some cool weather toys. This almost feels like the night I stayed up when Sandy hit. Maybe not as bad as her.....closer to Irene. Our bathroom vent has been going crazy all day. We've had very minor power flickers and Comcast went out for 5 minutes. It was perfect timing because my daughter was watching Nature Cat on PBS and the episode was all about weather and storms.

    2/20-2/21 Obs , The Deja Vu Event

    Very fine frozen mist right now in Towamencin. I don't have any reliable measurements here, but it looks in the 2 inch range. Throwing my kids outside in every piece of brand new snow gear I bought for this Winter. 😒

    2/20-2/21 Obs , The Deja Vu Event

    Coming down at a pretty moderate to almost heavy rate in Towamencin. Things don't take too long to get coated after being cleared. Roads are getting pretty sloppy. It's starting to get pretty.

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    I forget which year it was - but I remember another recent-ish low snow and high mud winter. I eventually took my kids sledding in the mud. Messy as all hell and I instantly regretted it, but they had fun.

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    Another weather outlet that's pay-to-play for "professional" weather discussion says spring weather is coming between the 2nd to 3rd week of March and that is final. Don't argue it. I bought my kids brand new snow boots and snow suits this year, so I feel partially responsible for this dud of a winter (but also partially gleeful because I dislike snow lol).

    Lets cancel 1st half of Feb snow obs 2/10-2/12

    It is 30° and downpouring sleet here in Towamencin. I don't have a reliable way to measure what's on the ground already. It's gross out there. I'm supposed to teach dance north of here at 4. It's not turning over to rain soon enough for my liking so I need to decide soon if I cancel.
