  1. BTW if anyone sees a 100F off the CWSU web site 5 minute obs, that is a done deal. The non official obs 5 minute readings convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit and they sometimes gives you the higher of the two possibilities, e.g. 32C could be either 89F or 90F. That is why one sometimes sees a 90F on the 5 minute obs, but the official high of the day is only 89F. No problem with 100F though since both 100F & 101F equate to 38C. A 99F (37C) might be "just" 98F, that one would have to wait for the official ob, climo for the day.
  2. Here's another throwback, this one from the 50th anniversary weather of the first lunar walk today. I don't know if we can have a July this much below normal any more either. Granted, it was total to date, not for the month.
  3. I'd go for the late August into early September circa 1953 heat wave, just to ruin the start of fall too.
  4. PNE already 91F prior to 10 am, so throw me into the shock tank if they don't hit 100F today.
  5. Those were the days. Just saw Philly overnight low was 80F, so no tieing that record today. Tomorrow's is 79F set way back in 2017, that is in play barring some convection affecting PHL itself. July 21st record low of 51 degrees was set in 1966. I was around for that, something that just does not seem possible anymore. Not only did the train leave the station, the station left the station also.

  7. All time Philly record high min temperatures 83F set on 7/24/2010 & 7/23/2011. It was 82F on 7/22/2011. There is a pattern there too.....

  9. 95F worked for yesterday. No real change for either today or Sunday on WAG. Don't know about that dip to 20C the GFS is predicting at the most opportune time. 98F or 99F both days.
  10. Today will be the 11th 90 degree plus high of the month for Philly matching the last two Julys. Exceeding the 16 in 2016 is still in play. We are not going to match the record of 21 set in 2012, so we have that working for us.
  11. Overnight low 77F. Philly overnight low either 80 or 81. If it is 81 (I think there has to be an 80 in there somewhere, he says), it would tie the daily high minimum record set in 2015.
  12. Canadian Weeklies starting 7/22 Temperature: Near normal weeks 1, 3 & 4. Below Normal 😮 Week 2. Precipitation: Wettish weeks 1 thru 3. Near normal week 4. Tropics (above normal pcpn) : Gulf & SW Atlantic week 1. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz other weeks.
  13. Same high in Mount Laurel. The hottest air was west of us today, over us tomorrow and home grown on Sunday.
  14. No change in the 10+ rule for the weekend, WAG for Saturday & Sunday highs remain at 98F or 99F. I think Philly made 95F so far today, don't know about these 5 minute roundings to F.
  15. Running precip total for the last 365 days in Mount Laurel:
  16. I don't know, it just runs hot: METAR Information for KPNE in N.E. PHILADELPHIA AIRPORT, PA, United States
