  1. I work in center city and we could feel our building swaying from the wind when this moved through! This was a more impressive event than Sunday was, in my opinion. Why didn't we hear "First Alerts!!!" about this for days leading up to it?
  2. 6/5 Enhance Risk Convective Reports/Discussion

    Skies are definitely brightening, but still pretty cloudy here near Valley Forge.
  3. Best radar apps, web links*

    Pretty sure there used to be a thread or two about this in the past, but I can't seem to find it (may have been on the old board)... With today's severe weather potential, it got me thinking - what are the sites you all use online for radar imagery? I often feel like the NWS Mt. Holly radar site is too small of an image on the screen, and sites like wunderground.com have too much bloat/ads on them that distract or cause slow performance. Is there something out there (for free) that is similar to the Radarscope app, but for the browser? Thanks!

  6. I could be wrong but I think January 1996 is the only time that blizzard conditions have verified in Philly.
  7. January 22-23 winter storm banter

    Just saw the Philly area was upgraded to a Blizzard Watch. When is the last time we were under one of those? February 2010?
