    Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Heisey should have vacationed in Minneapolis this month. https://www.weather.gov/mpx/snowymonth "This month has been so snowy that it is setting records for daily and monthly totals. On February 12th, Eau Claire, Wisconsin set a record for their snowiest February on record, and they continue to add to this record total with each additional storm. The Twin Cities and St. Cloud have also broken their February snowfall records as of Noon on February 20th." & still another 7 days left to pad those record totals In other news: RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS, NV 1235 AM PST THU FEB 21 2019 ...RECORD DAILY MAXIMUM SNOWFALL AT LAS VEGAS NV... 0.5 INCH OF SNOW FELL AT LAS VEGAS NV YESTERDAY. THIS WAS THE FIRST OCCURRENCE OF MEASURABLE SNOW ON THIS DATE. RECORDS GO BACK TO 1937.

    +100, for young weenies like myself a weather radio & Elliot in the am on KYW were must listens during the pre cable / internet era his poetic reports especially during significant events like the 1st snow of the season were priceless

    Big fan of Jim O'Brien when I was growing up, those weather segments & the back & forth between him & the rest of crew were hysterical. He was Cantore frolicking around on City Ave during the Blizzard of 83 before there was Cantore.
