  1. These are ridiculously chilly afternoon temperatures for late August...but I love it!
  2. I'm usually not ready for this kind of disappointment until snow totals start getting lowered 😕 oh well
  3. Neat little inflow tail (?) into stationary thunderstorms near Brigantine
  4. To me, this time of year is the opposite of February when spring training starts - at that time, people know the cold will slowly start easing up. Tonight is the first NFL preseason game, a sign that the summer heat will gradually start easing up (although last year it unfortunately took until October for the summer backbreaker front to come through).
  5. So much fog that I can't see more than a couple hundred feet at the beach. Temps struggling to get to the upper 70s currently. The cloud deck over NJ is moving east, but very slowly, so I'd imagine some high temp forecasts busting.
  6. Disgusting overnight lows up and down I-95. Nothing like waking up to a heat index near 90 first thing in the morning 🙄
  7. Is it safe to say the path of the storms tonight can have an effect on just how hot we get over the weekend? If most of the models (besides the NAM) are right and most of the rain stays north of Philly, then without the extra moisture near the surface I feel like areas from Delaware into South Jersey have the best shot of seeing something 100-102. Otherwise highs may be capped at 97-99.
  8. Don't see E - NE winds too often in July, almost seems like a setup on one of those raw April days except the Atlantic is a lot warmer now.
  9. Interesting rotation in the clouds in southern Delaware, but no rain or anything associated with it.
  10. Impressive shear of 55-60+ knots across the area
  11. Current visible satellite across the region. Other than the storms, the sneaky backdoor front across south Jersey can be seen too.
  12. Wasn't sure whether to ask in this thread or the Obs thread, but the severe weather potential down South today had me wondering - when is the last time Philadelphia (or the immediate surrounding areas) was in a Moderate risk for severe storms? I feel like we get an Enhanced risk 1-2 times a year, but I can't remember a Moderate risk being issued, especially for the I-95 corridor or towards the SNJ coast. Is there some kind of database for "last time ___ risk was issued for ___ area"?
  13. Thanks for clarifying - do you have a link to the site that has that data?
  14. In Philly, the record low max for today is 54 - NWS is going with 52, and the HRRR doesn't get any warmer than 50. Pretty amazing, especially since the 3 coldest highs for May 13 will have been set all within the last 3 years.
  15. Fog is juuuuust starting to break up down here, it's been very thick since late last evening. Pretty cool to see how warm it is just a few thousand feet above the surface - getting close to 70 while we're stuck in the mid 50s at ground level. Should warm quickly once the fog burns off.
  16. Some heavier rain pivoting southward around the coastal low
  17. Very frequent lightning around 5AM (1-2 flashes per second). Dry air is trying to move in now, so I'm seeing some interesting localized clashes of air masses
  18. Fog burned off quickly this morning, but you can still see it off near the horizon
  19. Beautiful shot of the eastern US this morning
  20. Fantastic-looking day outside. Not a cloud anywhere
  21. 34 (wind chill of 25) with a flizzard down here. Feels like January
