  1. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    visibility is lower at MPO with the snow, has to be at least 32 there
  2. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    GFS / NAM MOS indicate a late freeze N&W of the city tomorrow morning, 35 / 36 at PHL anything below 40 at PHL would be the coldest for the date since 35 in 1988 Epic snow this month at Green Bay - 36.7" this annihilates the existing APR monthly record of 15.1" & is also 3rd snowiest month on record Green Bay has a healthy snowfall period of record back to 1886
  3. APR 14-16 OBS - Summer to Shank to Swamp

    NAM / HRRR timing looked pretty solid yesterday, blew thru hear just after 7:00. GFS had the front barely clearing Baltimore so yeah definitely hit the sauce hard. Nice call on your part as not much movement with the front during the day however once to 5:00pm it really shifted into overdrive. 33 degree drop in right around 3 hrs. at TTN. 83 / 46 split yesterday, low today is the current temp of 40 was a 2 glove day on course this morning until the gloves got soaked & at that point no gloves are better than wet gloves, wedges were useless except immediately around the green were useless today, 7 iron punch & run was a much better option today would have been a crappy golfing day in JAN let alone APR

  10. APR 14-16 OBS - Summer to Shank to Swamp

    not sure I buy 56 at 8:00am however even more doubtful DYL is 32 at 11:00am, I guess a compromise between the 2 ends of the spectrum Hardy HRRR does look to maintain the magnitude of the shank despite trending a little slower with the frontal passage this evening. Marine flow causing the recent temp drops in North Jersey? At 3:00pm still 72 at Danbury & 70 at White Plains. Poughkeepsie 65 while Albany is 38 so we know where the polar front is located. ABE 86 so far today, ties the record

    love these historical nuggets if you don't already receive the monthly state climo newsletter you can register at the link below http://climate.psu.edu/features/newsletter/ I have the Philadelphia Area Weather Book the he co-authored with Glenn Schwartz. It was also a great historical reference at the time of release 16 yrs. ago when you didn't have all that info so easily accessible online like we do today. The 28 at PHL on 5/11/1966 is very noteworthy. Only May freeze on record at Philadelphia. The next coldest May 11th is 39 degrees.
  15. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    the low this morning at PHL was 29 degrees, this is only 1 degree off the record low of 28 set on multiple occasions, if it wasn't for the clouds from the city S & W the record low would have at least been tied, mid 20's for lows N & E of the city the 29 this morning is the coldest on this date since 28 in 1966 29 this morning matches 2016 & 1997 as the coldest APR temp since 27 in 1995 Since 1991 this is the 2nd latest freeze at PHL (4/16/2014) Since official OBS moved to PHL in 1940 the average date of the last freeze is 4/4, over the past 30 yrs. the average last freeze date is 3/31
