  1. Termination of Solar Cycles and Correlated Tropospheric Variability. https://arxiv.org/pdf/1812.02692.pdf
  2. Not surprised at all by this event or year overall....GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM MUCH!!!! Get used to this for the next 2-3 winters

    Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Any one witness the crazy light show last night from cell north of Allentown. Prob mostly cloud to cloud but it was constant.

    Hey Cam cat... I am a land/hardscaper of 25+ yrs. ( I also mow grass...lol). I have graded new construction town homes and solved many water issues. E-mail me some pics if possible (landscapelaw123@ gmail.com). I always start with where is the water coming from?

  6. Sea surface temperatures (SST) are the best available indicator of heat content gained or lost from earth’s climate system. https://rclutz.wordpress.com/2018/06/05/cooling-ocean-air-temps/
  7. Without all this freakin' rain though. Its been brutal cutting....Looks like the pattern is relaxing over the next 10 days. No heat in site!!
  8. All those years line up nicely with low sun spot solar cycles. I am expecting this year to be wettest on record for our region. We will continue to have transitional season (spring/fall) type weather throughout the summer...... if you can even call it summer!?
  9. With a the month almost wrapped up and Precip amounts monsoon like... I thought it'd be a good time for some more Space and climate research. The link below is great in helping connect solar cycles and earth weather along with cosmic radiation inducing unusual cloud nucleation. Global catastrophic hail events are up with hail size records being broken as well. We are at a time when weather forecasting needs to start considering more factors, like space weather, to improve advanced notification to the public, as weather becomes more and more volatile. https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/2017JD027475

    If the stumps are not to big they come out very easily. I usually leave top two feet to help leverage root ball loose. I try to avoid chemicals.... a few copper nails in any stump will kill it off. Sharon roots are not very strong and will not regenerate new plants.
  11. Great site to dive into earth weather/ sun connection. http://solarcyclescience.com/ Discover the Sun! The Sun provides Earth with warmth, light, and the energy that fuels our entire ecosystem. As the largest body in the solar system, the Sun is the focal point and guides the planets in their orbits. It is no surprise that it has been worshiped by cultures throughout history, yet there is still much that is not known about the Sun. Once thought to be constant and unchanging, it is only in modern times that is has become evident that the Sun is in fact extremely dynamic. Since the invention of the telescope, knowledge of the Sun has grown at an extraordinary rate. Each discovery brings new ideas and often conflict. Even now, our understanding of the Sun is constantly being redefined as each new discovery is made. We invite you to explore this site and Discover the Sun!!!
  12. Liking the trend, but anything modeled outside of 12hrs this year has been pitiful!! Thinking storm intensity is a bit under forecast. Looking for a rapid stregnething of coastal low Sat evening due to Suns Coronal Hole Stream connecting with earth.
  13. Albedo "The fraction of solar radiation reflected by a surface or object, often expressed as a percentage. Snow-covered surfaces have a high albedo, the surface albedo of soils ranges from high to low, and vegetation-covered surfaces and oceans have a low albedo. The Earth’s planetary albedo varies mainly through varying cloudiness, snow, ice, leaf area and land cover changes."" When sunlight is reflected from something, that sunlight hasn't been absorbed so it doesn't contribute to warming that thing. So higher albedo has a cooling effect and lower albedo a warming effect. https://www.sott.net/article/379252-Galactic-cosmic-rays-hitting-Earth-are-bad-and-getting-worse
  14. April 1915 holds record for most snow in April with 19.7". If Philly can manage 7"+ for month 2018 would hold 2nd place for March and April. I'm over snow but would love it if we set such a record. Tornadoes and snow bombs....that would be something!!
  15. Ok that would work. Nam 3KM has a impressive line around noon.
