  1. 3.78” in Clifton heights delco, with maybee another hundredth or two before we wrap up. Plants and grass and (too?) happy
  2. Yep just had a 5 minute shower here - a whopping 0.01" and now it feels even steamier as the sun is poking back out.
  3. Sure looks like it 😑 I saw a lot on my work property in Montco last year but only just started seeing them here in delco about a month ago. Since then I’ve probably seen 100-200 in my yard. Try to kill them as often as possible but those little buggers are smart, they jump about 10’ when you get too close.
  4. Elevated mixed layer http://www.ryanhanrahan.com/2011/05/27/elevated-mixed-layer/
  5. # severe warnings - 194 # 90+ days - 37 Highest temp - 100
  6. How long after putting down new grass seed before it’s ok to put down weed preventer (mainly for crabgrass)? I threw down some fresh soil and seed around my new patio back in March (Didn’t have much of a choice bc the patio wasn’t finished until December) and it’s come along nice, and usually try to put down the crabgrass prevent around Memorial Day, but don’t want to destroy any of the fresh seedlings.
  7. Yep that’s definitely it. Thanks tombo!
  8. Anyone have any idea what this is? It’s growing like wildfire and is like velcro when you touch it so I’ve had to resort to spraying it
  9. Have actually been getting some flurries/light graupel falling here and there over the past hour or so. Surface warmth must be very shallow considering it's in the mid 40s on my VP2. Definitely up there with the warmest surface temps I've seen flakes flying.
  10. As a typically even-keeled, former meteorologist, I can’t help but laugh at this “how everything that could if wrong went wrong” winter went. So my question to you all is.. what at this point could save this winter for you??? Based on the incredibly +AO, dumpster fire pacific, and crap MJO we have very little to hope for at least the next 3 weeks, but my question to you all is “is there a storm that could still turn this winter into a “B”?, and “A”??
  11. Meh, I thought so too but nothing more than some wet flakes mixing in as it went through. I don't even think a single flake has stuff in my neck of the woods.
  12. Bottomed out at 49.3. First 40s since June 4th 😎
  13. I think that was the highest rainful rate I've recorded in the 3 years since I put in my VantagePro2. Hit 8"/hr on the mark. Fortunately it was quick hitting and we only got about 1.3". Still enough for water to pour into the basement 😐
