  1. Random question for any NWS folks...I know of the overworked & undermanned story ongoing for years and maybe this is related but why does NWS PHI not have a quick link to rain/wind/snow totals like other offices do on their webpage? For example OKX had links posted on their main page starting last evening for rain totals and wind gusts. I have no problem searching through “text products” to hunt them down but I was wondering why they rarely post it on the main page.
  2. Wind did a number on Halloween decorations and trash cans in my neighborhood overnight. Finally feels and looks like October out there.
  3. Well, I was wrong with the “under”. 1.55”. Lots of water in yards (Atleast temporarily) and on the streets driving through a Boyertown around 6.
  4. Pretty good back end rains the past 2 hours. Wouldn’t happen if it was snowing. Checking the gauges in a bit.
  5. Here we go!... National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 308 PM EDT Wed Oct 16 2019 DEZ001-MDZ008-012-015-019-020-NJZ001-007>010-012-015>019-PAZ054- 055-060>062-070-071-101>106-171000- /O.EXB.KPHI.WI.Y.0008.191016T2200Z-191017T2200Z/ New Castle-Cecil-Kent MD-Queen Annes-Talbot-Caroline-Sussex- Warren-Morris-Hunterdon-Somerset-Middlesex-Mercer-Salem- Gloucester-Camden-Northwestern Burlington-Carbon-Monroe-Berks- Lehigh-Northampton-Delaware-Philadelphia-Western Chester- Eastern Chester-Western Montgomery-Eastern Montgomery-Upper Bucks- Lower Bucks- Including the cities of Wilmington, Elkton, Chestertown, Centreville, Easton, Denton, Newton, Washington, Morristown, Flemington, Somerville, New Brunswick, Trenton, Pennsville, Glassboro, Camden, Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Mount Holly, Jim Thorpe, Stroudsburg, Reading, Allentown, Bethlehem, Media, Philadelphia, Honey Brook, Oxford, West Chester, Kennett Square, Collegeville, Pottstown, Norristown, Lansdale, Chalfont, Perkasie, Morrisville, and Doylestown 308 PM EDT Wed Oct 16 2019 ...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO 6 PM EDT THURSDAY... * WHAT...West winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 45 to 50 mph are expected. * WHERE...Portions of central, northern, northwest and southern New Jersey, east central, northeast and southeast Pennsylvania, northeast Maryland and northern Delaware. * WHEN...From 6 PM this evening to 6 PM EDT Thursday. * IMPACTS...The strong wind gusts may take down some tree limbs, which could result in localized power outages. Unsecured objects, such as trash cans and lawn furniture, may be blown around by the strong winds. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The highest wind gusts will likely occur this evening and again on Thursday.
  6. Lets be honest, those “QPF” totals on the western edge (in winter) would be much tighter and we’d be sweating bullets and eventually disappointed. Been there too many times. 🙃
  7. I’m rolling out 2 rain gauges at the new house for the first time this year. The excitement is building! 2 weeks ago today I started a huge aeration and overseed project on the yard. The weather has been kind so far so hopefully the heavy rain today isn’t too abusive on the new grass and remaining seed. As for the wind, these fall and spring synoptic storms always seem “blow” our severe weather “wind events” away.
  8. I’ll take the “under” on rain totals and “over” on wind gusts.
  9. Sunrise and sunset were winners today. From my evening stroll...
  10. 2nd is easier than the first. With that said when my wife asked about a third I said. N-O.
  11. Pretty amazing October/90+ stats tweeted by the NWS. Been a long time since we’ve seen this. I guess if we can have 70s around Christmas, 90s in October should be rather meh.
