  1. 15 out of the past 20 APR's have been above average, 14 out of the past 20 May's have been above average. March has been the only close to 50 / 50 month the past 20 years so you get a warm March & it's off to the races, as you said too warm is the bigger concern.
  2. There have been (21) seasons in which Philadelphia has recorded less than 10" of snow. The bad news, (5) of those instances were followed by another pathetic season. Good news is there are some really nice hits, 2013-14 caveat being we had to endure (2) morbid seasons before reaching Valhalla. Edit: caveat to the caveat is 2012-13 wasn't terrible immediately NE of the city from Lower Bucks onward.
  3. 18 this morning, could very well be the lowest temp until December
  4. New Brunswick might have the best snowfall data for the non-official sites, Flemington & Hightstown are also pretty good.
  5. There's a link below for NOWData which is a wealth of data for every NWS Forecast office. https://sercc.com/nowdata.html
  6. no rain at LAX for 22 days going into the tournament & over the past 48 days only 0.38", well below average for this time of year
  7. 5 yrs. ago today we were in the grip of the one of the coldest stretches on record during the month of February. List below are the top 25 coldest 15 day periods at Philadelphia during that month. Never gets old looking back at FEB 1979. As far as FEB 2015 not only was the magnitude of the cold impressive even more note worthy was the intensity so late in winter. The 2 degrees recorded at PHL on 2/20/15 was bested on only 2 occasions in terms of being the coldest temp so late in the season (1 degree on 2/20/79 & 2 degrees on 2/24/1889). Frozen Delaware River at Yardley & Trenton (2/16/15 & 2/21/15). Snow in Yardley on 2/17/15
  8. Locally 31 / 11 split today 11 degrees is the coldest temp of the season -13 degree daily departure is the lowest of met winter & only the 2nd negative double digit daily departure over met winter. Over the same period there have been 19 positive double digit daily departures.
  9. 11 this morning, made sure I got outside for a couple of hours to enjoy some semblance of winter. Even better that the ground at the dog park as frozen solid, was getting tired of our yellow lab turning into a chocolate lab at that mud pit. since 2000 the average FEB low temp at PHL is 14 degrees even in the ugliest of winters Mount Pocono fond a way to get down to 0
  10. 3 more years of kid's college left on my end then it's wagon's north or even west to Colorado
  11. old school man cold for Utqiagvik (Barrow), could be the coldest start to FEB since 1984, quite a change of pace from the recent +20 monthly departures during winter, for year 2019 was over 10 degrees warmer than the long tern annual mean - remarkable
