  1. That was a 1/25/00 type event for us. The mets at 11pm said it would stay to our south and we ended up with a great surprise storm. Although when I saw the radar on the 11pm news I told my brother "no way that misses us." It started snowing a little more than an hour later. Ahh, the memories of snow and youth!
  2. I mentioned 82/83 because of Rainshadow's comment that 6"+ in December guaranteed at least one more that year. 12/82 at BWI featured a 6"-8" event. Maybe Phl missed that one, idk. February, of course, then had the megalopolis blizzard. 1/83 was a dud just like 1/10 was for the most part (Bwi did happen to sneak a 5" fluke event on 1/30, but the rest of the month was nada.)
  3. Didn't see this thread before I posted in another one. Anyway, 36 from a reliable thermometer close to my house in Hanover with frost covering all the roofs.
  4. 82/83 was similar to 09/10 with the beefy Nino and decent events in December, weak January, then but hit(s) in February. Put another way, Jose Canseco was just a boy in 82/83 and matured by the time 09/10 hit.
  5. Frost on the roofs in Hanover, PA this morning. Blockbuster winter on the way.🤥
  6. Idk what the other models are showing (too lazy to look), but the GFS has been advertising for a while AN temps beginning 9/25 and beyond....as in the 80's.
  7. Since it's a probability forecast, it doesn't say by how much our area will be above normal. So we've got that going for us.
  8. FWIW, the CFS2's latest September forecast thru 9/10 data. Even the CFS2 "usually" gets it right from this far out. lol
  9. Ukmet Seasonal Forecast from September 11. If I'm reading it correctly, it looks like normal temps and a slightly better than average chance of AN precip. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/climate/seasonal-to-decadal/gpc-outlooks/glob-seas-prob-skill
  10. I've been admittedly bitter with the alleged upgraded Euro ever since the debacle in 3/18 when the run 24 hrs. before start time gave BWI 22' and 12 hrs. later was at 12-14. We ended up with 4". Prior versions of the Euro never did that or anything close. Frankly, it's troublesome as a weenie because when you had the Euro in your corner, you were gold. Not now imho.
  11. Too bad wrt the Euro and I agree with your characterization. But it really will cause headaches in the future because so many still think of it as the King....with clothes.
  12. Speaking of model busts, this "new" version of the Euro from a few years ago continues to bust, not only at my old digs around BWI but at the new one in Hanover, PA. Supposed to get 1/2 to 1 inch of rain by now.....nothing in Hanover and a shower at BWI.
  13. I could be wrong, even way wrong, but I'd prefer a wet fall than a dry one in anticipation of the coming winter.
  14. Don't know if this has ever been posted before, but for those who are old enough to remember the thawing storm after the 96 blizzard, this is a pretty neat twc clip that is Philly centric.
