  1. Is -11 even possible at PHL? That would tie the all-time record that was set in the 30s.
  2. Looking at the radar loop - http://www.njweather.org/maps/nj-statewide-radar-6-hour-loop What makes the storm keep regenerating over one area? It did appear to be moving, it just kept regenerating.
  3. My parents had siding damage in Florence. Wind related. Sounds crazy - as you mentioned.
  4. Radar estimates top out around 5.25" in Florence. Per this site, 5.22" in two hours is a 1 in 1,000 year rainfall (at the Burlington site).... Rough night. https://hdsc.nws.noaa.gov/hdsc/pfds/pfds_map_cont.html?bkmrk=nj
  5. I drove past there at 11:30 AM and there was a car in the woods on the right side right after the exit.
  6. KPNE 91/80/109 at 11 am..... Is there a dew point record for the Philly area?
  7. Just curious - why does a situation like Princeton yesterday happen? You could literally see one spot on the radar where "red" thunderstorms kept generating and feeding NE into the Princeton area. Why does Princeton get 6" and spots 20 miles away get <0.5"? (Not complaining by the way - I hate flooding rains and am glad I avoided them.)
  8. Don't forget 7/22/11. https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/KPNE/2011/7/22/DailyHistory.html?req_city=&req_state=&req_statename=&reqdb.zip=&reqdb.magic=&reqdb.wmo= KPNE to 105 according to this page ( from memory, I thought it was only 104). And dew point of 75. KPHL 103/77 To me, that's the only day in my lifetime that compared with 7/15/95.
  9. When was the last time we had an official blizzard at the airport? I dont remember 96 being that windy (or the storms of the 2000s).
  10. Thanks - one more quick one. For a blizzard, do we need three hours of sustained 35 mph winds or is it gusts over 35 mph? Sorry - just saw the banter post - you can move this!
  11. Quick question - the NWS discussion says that the snow may start as dry and fluffy but will get wetter and heavier. Isn't it usually the opposite? Once the storm passes the winds turn around to the north?
  12. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/extreme-solar-storm-streaking-towards-earth-scientists-say/ Does anyone think we'll be able to see the Northern Lights here tomorrow night?
