  1. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    0.75" of rain in NW Chesco since midnight. 1.43" over last 4 days. MTD we are now up to 6.80" still raining so we may move into 3rd wettest February on record (1894 to Present) behind only 1899 (10.22") / 1900 (7.75") / current 3rd rank 1902 (6.92"). Of interest also currently looking like we could finish as the 3rd warmest February on record behind only 2017 and 1998

  7. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Record heat and record cold in the same winter season....has it ever been seen before?
  8. Today's high in Chester County reached 77.7 this is the warmest February temperature ever recorded in Chester County History from 1894 to Present. Of course as warm as today was...it can't beat the 4 days this week in 1930 that surpassed 70 degrees in Chester County. Our high tomorrow will occur at midnight with even some sleet possible by later tomorrow.
  9. Potential Winter Storm Threats II

    Kind of like where the latest Euro has this 9 days out....lots to change but much potential with this look!
  10. Up to 76.4 here in East Nantmeal....all-time record February high temperature record is within reach at 77 degrees set back on Feb 25th 1930!
  11. We set a record high min for the entire month (1894 to Present) of February this AM with the temp only getting down to 58.4 if this holds thru midnight (WXSIM says it won't) it would break the old mark of 53 set way back in 1939. Wxsim has us slipping to around 51 before midnight tonight. Yesterday we just missed a record high as we only hit 70.4 (Chester County record 71 set back in 1930). Today we have a great shot at eclipsing the old mark which is only 70 degrees also from 1930.
  12. Up to 68.4 here in NW Chesco - the record high temps for both today (71) and tomorrow (70) were set way back in 1930...gonna be close. While down in Sea Isle City the sea breeze has been working overtime with a SW wind made it to 63 at 11am but down to 50 at 1145 then back up to 65.7 with a SW wind at 2pm and now starting back down with the wind back out of the SE at 60 degrees.
  13. 2017/2018 Seasonal snowfall totals

    After last night's event we now have 25.4" for the 2017/18 winter season (see sig for details) which is (0.8") below average snowfall through yesterday. MTD we are at 6.8"... we are likely done with snow for February so we should finish the month well below our normal monthly snowfall of 12.4". Through the end of February our average seasonal snowfall should stand at 31.0". We will have some work to do in March/April to get us to our normal seasonal snowfall of 36".

  23. Private Professional MET Thoughts

    JB is not a happy camper these days....I bet he will find a snow threat for us in the near future - it may be 10 days out but....
  24. Private Professional MET Thoughts

    It looks like the Weatherbell folks had a pretty good read on the northern extent of the light snow - JB reports this AM that the snow is breaking out albeit light (and will all the way to NYC) due to the height falls from the west due to the tightening baroclinic zone - while the surface low pressure is down near Florida. He believes you can see a small area of low pressure showing along Cape Hatteras and mentioned most folks will see has his ideas from earlier in the week had merit. Regarding the Friday/Sat system he says just like this event watch for that westward bias of the EURO and look to the parallel EURO for a better idea. The latest EURO shows 19" of snow for Coatesville PA next weekend.
