  1. 0.29" back home overnight Nothing down here in North Wildwood, very humid the past 2 days, wind turned around this morning & DP's have dropped into the upper 60's.
  2. My North Wildwood view for the next week. Looks like a chamber of commerce beach week.
  3. Locally 2.02" final 4.15" total at PHL At Philadelphia 10 of top 20 wettest days on record have occurred since 2000. 7 of those 10 since 2011.
  4. locally 1.89" 77 / 73 split today brown grass cancel continuing the theme that any dry spell since 2002 has had a short shelf life South Harrison, Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex - 6.17"
  5. thru 6:00pm - 4.04" officially at PHL, record for the date & the 4th wettest July day on record: 1. 8.02" - 7/28/2013 2. 4.68" - 7/12/2004 3. 4.38" - 7/5/1989 4. 4.04" - 7/10/2020 over the entire Philadelphia period of record this is the 20th wettest day on record
  6. locally 1.43" at this point, more showery now after the big slug went thru 1.11" between 12:00-1:00 at PHL, decent chance of a 3" event there
  7. Not the ridge bridge we're looking for, also showing up on today's GEFS, does lower the east coast heights by day 10 so we'll see if that holds
  8. 89 / 74 locally in LMT, second straight day in the upper 80's, meanwhile nearby TTN keeps pez dispensing 90's Over on the coast at Lavallette a fresh south wind kept the max's in the low 80's however no relief from the low-mid 70 DP's afternoon ocean dip was just about perfection with temp in the low 70's, no shocker that is solidly above average for this time of year - these darn ocean heat islands are getting old....
  9. today we begin to lose a minute of daylight, over the course of July the length of daylight gets 42 mins shorter
  10. 93 / 68 in LMT today, hottest of the season precip wise a 0.20" rock, girlfriend reported pea sized hail as did every friend / relative in the lower end of Bucks congrats to all that experienced some really active stuff today down on the CNJ coast today by far the most oppressive day of the summer, the morning temps upper 80's to low 90's with DP's in the mid 70's were not a nice combo on the blazing sand, sea breeze did gradually lower temps however the humidity was brutal all day 10:30am on Mantoloking beach, only one lonely beach goer braving the soup Strong storm approaching Belmar just before 3:00, gusty with plenty of CTG lightning
  11. burnt toast fairways up at Morgan Hill yesterday, starter said they're only watering the tees & greens so I'm inclined to believe him
  12. ugliest morning of the summer locally beachfront is just as bad, no sea breeze until the afternoon, not going to enjoyable outside
  13. After several very ugly July's starting in 1988 we had a nice stretch of 14 yrs. from 1996 to 2009 in which only one July averaged over 80 degrees, I don't know what the heck happened during the 2000 summer but that was something special in the modern climo era. Since that time July has averaged over 80 degrees, August is on fire & September is the 4th month of summer. Over the past 18 yrs. PHL has recorded 50's during July only in 2007.
  14. 0.44" from the storm last evening We certainly take
  15. Tough decide the bigger LOL at PNE, is it the 99 degrees at some point between 12:00-1:00 or the 79 degree low for day. The CWOP & air quality sites in NE Philly were 94 & 95 degrees Really long overdue to put that PNE thermometer out to the glue factory. 92 / 72 degrees locally in LMT
  16. Not that lucky Brian, no golf just business, with that being said it's not out of the question as we have more Monday's scheduled so fingers crossed.... regardless it was fantastic to spend 10 hrs. on the grounds & get an up close look at 13 of the 18 holes, place is magnificent and just like Augusta pics do not do it justice not the worse thing right now either as my driver has been useless the last few rounds, one thing you need to do there is drive for a decent amount of distance as you're teeing off over a number of waste areas & water, need to hit it at least 225-230 yds. to have decent position in the fairway, 6557 yds. from the regular tees & that's only two par 5's, both over 570 yds., six par 4's of 400 yds (+), as can imagine there's more sand there than in Sea Isle this is the practice area, it's in better shape than most the regular holes on public courses
  17. Locally clouds have saved the day to this point, only 91 degrees for a high a number of the CWOP sites in Lower / Central Bucks haven't reached 90, on the flip side Doylestown / TTN NWS-FAA sites have max'd at 93 degrees so go figure?
  18. Mantoloking, NJ today, did squeak out an hour or so of sun before the rain & thunder moved in just before 2:00. Not much of a sea breeze today but you can't complain about temps in the upper 70's during July. Very little rain on the immediate coast however a different story just inland.
  19. June at PHL - 75.0 degrees, 1.7 degrees above average This represents the warmest June since 2011 & the 13th warmest over the 147 yr. period of record
  20. Remember when this primary goal was to "flatten the curve"? That & "we're all in this together" are nothing but steaming piles of dung. Decisions on both sides of the fence are driven by ideology. Governors that were largely limited are now essentially dictators & drunk with power. For 3 weeks despite widespread complete disregard for CDC protocol the virus wasn't an issue and if we are to believe the narrative that protests haven't led to a spike in cases why do we once again see a picture of a crowded beach attached to nearly ever virus spike story? Beaches are very low risk ventures. Botched bar openings half way across the country are just another goal post adjustment with the unfortunate end result being the continued assault on the small businesses.
  21. Golf Digest #1 course in the U.S. for 2019-20 & over the vast majority of years back to 1985 - Pine Valley GC 7181 yds. from the tips, par 70 #3 par 3, 198 yds. from the back, this is the #17 handicap hole #5 par 3, 238 yds. from the back #7 green, par 5 636 yds. from the back, #1 handicap hole #10 par 3, 161 yds. from the back, #18 handicap hole #12 par 4 #14 par 3, 210 yds. from the back #15 fairway left & #16 green right #18 from the regular tee, 425 yds. par 4, back tee is nearly 60 yds. further & almost 250 yds. to drive the fairway
  22. 90 / 68 split today 3rd 90 day of the year 0.14" from a couple of t-showers MTD - 4.24"
  23. Lol 94 at PNE It's really time to retire that thermometer, no point in reporting an obs that far off.
