  1. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Daily & a couple of monthly records from yesterday https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/summer-february-80-massachusetts-78-nyc According to Weather Underground weather historian Christopher C. Burt, February 20 - 21 marked the most extraordinary heat event to ever affect the Northeastern quadrant of the U.S. during the month of February, since official records began in the late 1800s. He catalogued the following eight states that tied or beat all-time February state heat records over the past two days, noting that in the case of Maine and Vermont, “It is simply amazing to beat a state temperature record by some 8°F!”: Pennsylvania: 83° at Capitol City (ties old record for the state) New York: 79° at La Guardia Airport (old state record 78°) Vermont: 77° at Bennington (old state record 68°) New Hampshire: 77° at Manchester (old state record 72°) Maine: 77° at Wells (old state record 69°) New Jersey: 83° at Teterboro (old state record 80°) Massachusetts: 80° at Fitchburg (old state record 73°) Ohio: 80° at Cincinnati Lunken Airport (ties old record for the state)

    Phila. FEB rankings thru yesterday. Already the 15th wettest on record. From a temperature standpoint currently the 26th warmest, obviously that's going to rapidly climb the ladder. Also added the subsequent MAR temps & snowfall. Mean MAR temps for those years (43.5) are warmer than the long term average over the period of record while snowfall mean (3.4") is close to the long term average. Some nice snow months in the mix, in fact the highlighted totals (6 of 22) represent the snowiest month of the season. Long term POR mean MAR temp - 42.2, snowfall - 3.7"
  11. yep, record high min for the month of FEB is 54 on 3 occasions 2/17/1891, 2/25/1930 & 2/20/1939
  12. at Philly the record high minimum for 2/21 is 49, that'll be road kill come WED 2013, 2014 & 2015 we didn't even hit 70 during the entire month of March March is the new February
  13. 2017/2018 Seasonal snowfall totals

    12/9 - 5.7" 12/13 - 1.1" 12/15 - 1.8" 12/30 - 2.8" 1/4 - 4.5" 1/17 - 0.9" 1/30 - 0.1" 2/7 - 0.1" (sleet) 2/17 - 3.1" Seasonal Total - 20.1"
