  1. I usually understand about 5% of his posts but this one is pretty self explanatory. Certainly would qualify as an improvement especially if we could score something in late DEC. I'd gladly surrender the 1st 3 wks. of DEC for a nice winter stretch over the Holidays.
  2. RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DETROIT/PONTIAC MI 1240 AM EST TUE NOV 12 2019 ...RECORD DAILY MAXIMUM SNOWFALL SET AT DETROIT MI... ...RECORD NOVEMBER DAILY SNOWFALL SET AT DETROIT MI... A RECORD DAILY SNOWFALL OF 8.5 INCHES WAS SET AT DETROIT METRO AIRPORT YESTERDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 4.1 SET IN 1984. THE 8.5 INCHES ALSO SET THE NOVEMBER DAILY SNOWFALL AS WELL. THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS 6.2 INCHES SET ON NOVEMBER 15 1925. RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN 812 AM EST TUE NOV 12 2019 ...RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE AND SNOW DEPTH SET AT INDIANAPOLIS... THE TEMPERATURE AT THE INDIANAPOLIS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FELL TO 8 DEGREES THIS MORNING. THIS SETS A NEW RECORD LOW FOR THE DATE. THE PREVIOUS RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE FOR THE DATE WAS 14...SET IN 1911. HOWEVER...THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THE RECORD MAY BE BROKEN AGAIN AND PUSHED LOWER BEFORE THE END OF THE DAY AT MIDNIGHT EST TONIGHT. THE LOW TEMPERATURE OF 8 DEGREES THIS MORNING ALSO SETS THE RECORD FOR THE COLDEST SO EARLY IN THE SEASON AND IS THE EARLIEST SINGLE DIGIT TEMPERATURE ON RECORD INDIANAPOLIS.
  3. quick 15-20 min burst of light snow, no accumulation, did drop the temp down to 32 degrees
  4. I believe you're thinking of 11/21/1987, easily the coldest NOV day I've experienced in this area, midnight highs in the low 30's, arctic front blew thru around 6:00-7:00am with squalls that covered the ground, in the northern burbs morning temps fell thru the 20's to the upper teens by early afternoon accompanied by winds gusting 40-45 mph. 11/11/1987 was the infamous Veterans Day surprise snowstorm for the DC area. After DC got crushed with 11.5" & thunder they issued WSW's for 6-10" in Philly however the heavy stuff died before it got here & naturally redeveloped for SNE & nailed Boston. https://www.c-span.org/video/?661-1/vietnam-memorial-rededication
  5. 19 for a low this morning at TTN this breaks the record low for the date of 22 set in 1995 this also represents the earliest teens on record, previous earliest was 19 on 11/13/1986

  10. JAN 2005, talk about the proverbial rubber band snapping - 1st 15 days averaged +10.2 & the remainder of the month averaged -11.7.
  11. 31, 32 & 28 locally the past 3 mornings PHL dropped below 40 degrees for the 1st time this season SAT morning, even by the recent warming standards that is late. The average date over the past 20 yrs. is 10/21. PHL finished OCT with an average temp of 61.2 degrees, this is tied with 4 other yrs. for the 12 warmest on record. The last below average OCT was back in 2009. A couple from the dog walk this morning: nice healthy buck in of all places Bucks County a steamer off the local ponds
