  1. I know I have the best chance but I wonder if anyone here sees their first flakes before the month is out...wouldn't be that unusual for UNV to score an October trace or more but that month ending cold shot looks somewhat legit for something for the far NW suburbs. Are the weeklies showing Gigi-better-bury-his-figs type cold?
  2. Hi everyone, My wife and I are visiting Dewey/Rehoboth for Greyhounds Reach the Beach this week, our annual trip with our two greyhounds that causes me to spend a couple of weeks scheming how to move to like Milton. Anyway, part of the trip involves two fishing outings for me. I normally hit the IRI, or the Cape pier for one trip, and a surf fishing venture to like 3Rs. So, given the fact that surf fishing probably is out because I'd need to fling crowbars given how riled up the surf is going to be, any recommendations for great spots in that general area? Any place that anyone likes when the weather is nor'easter-ish? Don't have a boat (SCA anyway) so would be shore/pier. I used to fish that area all the time growing up and we've only been going down for like 5-6 years, so not the informed guy I was about good spots. Please let me know and thanks. Feel free to turn this thread into a general fishing thread if you like. Thanks, everyone.
  3. So, the dog in my avatar, her sister, the wife, and I are invading PhillyWx.com Country this week for the annual Greyhounds Reach the Beach event in Dewey/Rehoboth Wed-Sun. So... Vacation/Fishing Guy Me: This really sucks, hope it's further east and doesn't retrograde. Weather Nerd Me: Awesome! Can't wait to see that pounding surf!
  4. Yes, and you can get grafted heirloom varieties so they won't lose any flavor like you often get with hybrids. It's really cool.
  5. You can find that data here: https://w2.weather.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=phi It's sort of hidden on the site but has some good info. If you choose "preliminary monthly climate data" and nearest location to you, you'll get the month so far to date. Philly is at +5.7, Allentown is at +7.4. Pretty warm month, for sure.
  6. My prediction of how the TonyFV3 snowmap will look for the Thanksgiving 2019 storm.
  7. I got about another month to go up here in central PA so sure, I'll bite.
  8. Also doesn't appear like we'll have the June-in-February like 2017 and July-in-March like 2016, which is good news for PA fruit growers. I used to do freelancing as editor of a local food blog and I know our orchard owners around here have had a marked increase in blossom loss since the mid-90s due to extended very early warm spells followed by cold outbreaks. So the weeklies are encouraging in that way as well.
  9. Appears to be a typical transition into spring forecasted, correct?
  10. Instead of needles and dendrites with computer model snow you get 1's and 0's. Very easy to shovel. This is probably more suited for the pattern thread, but I was wondering if given how this winter has mimicked a La Nina in many ways, if we have a long slog to spring this year like last year's La Nina. I really hope not. At least the weeklies don't seem to think so. Last April Happy Valley was Grumpy About the Weather Valley.
  11. I especially enjoyed it dumping 2 feet of snow in 12 hours on the southern Appalachians at the end of the run. Road trip to Grandfather Mountain.
  12. I am currently in Hallowell, the building right in the middle behind the tree. It put on quite a little show. The shelf cloud really surprised me when I saw it out the office window, and additional entertainment was provided by the poor bastard trying to ride his bike in the squall past our building.
  13. That might juice up the squall line down there. I see the sun's out, could also make things much worse on the roads given flash freezing.
  14. I thought you all would find this pretty interesting...winter shelf cloud:
