  7. Looks like some good ole PHL heat island help working it's magic in those charts
  8. Al Gore would clearly not appreciate this....inconvenient data fact.....
  9. On this date way back 118 years ago in 1900 we were in the middle of our hottest August day of the hottest August month in our history here in the NW Philadelphia suburbs. The high today back in 1900 hit 101.5...this was one of five times that August that we hit the century mark...occurring way back before we all were so worried about climate change at the turn of the century. Some may be surprised but 4 of our 5 warmest summers (June/July/August) happened to occur during the 1st 50 years of the 20th century. Here is a list of the climatological warmest summers in the NW Philadelphia suburbs since 1894. #1- 1900 (+10.7 above normal) #2 - 1999 ((+8.7 above normal) #3 - 1901 (+8.5 above normal) #4 - 1942 (+8.4 above normal) #5 - 1955 (+8.4 above normal) -

    keeping an eye on a big cell now just 11 miles to my NW (just southeast of Reading) dropping SE.....could be some major flooding in East Nantmeal Twp if this holds together

    With the 0.15" of rain last evening we are now up to 3.64" this month and 13.18" since July 1st - through today we are 13.25" above normal rain through today. Rain so far this year stands at 43.81" our average annual rainfall is 50.97" with the wettest being the 75.12" that fell back in 1996.. This is already the 10th wettest year in the last 36 years and we are only 0.66" away from matching the entire rain we recorded in 2017. Of course no heat waves in these parts this week with the best we could do being the 87.7 on Sunday. So far today we have hit 85.1 (index of 94)
  14. I will post Professional Meteorologists Winter Forecasts here for those interested. To start off Weatherbell sent client forecasts last week and hit us professional subscribers with their forecast (not a probability forecast) today. They see an early start and a cold and stormy winter for our local area. Temperature forecasts for the area are 3 degrees below normal temperatures with more than 133% of normal seasonal snow. Paul
