    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    Worcester, PA. All snow. 38.
  2. My understanding is if a tree is not healthy and the owner does nothing to remedy it then the owner is responsible if it lands in a neighbors property. IF it is healthy then the owner is not responsible if it falls across a property line. In the same concept if an owner cuts a tree down and does it in a way that it falls on the others property the owner is responsible because he made the improper cut.

    High wind threat, Feb. 24-25

    Looks like NWS PHL has gone with a high wind warning for Sunday PM (after 2 PM) and Monday most of the day for western Chester, Montgomery and Bucks on n and w. Eastern zones of the same counties remain in a high wind watch. Based on the afternoon discussion it appears they will evaluate those areas for a possible change later today.

    2/20-2/21 Obs , The Deja Vu Event

    Worcester, Pa. 28.2. Moderate snow. Untreated roads covered.
  6. Bottomed out at -4 below in Worcester, Pa.
  7. Worcester, PA has switched over - all snow - moderate 35 degrees. grass covered. roads starting to cover. 4:55 PM
  8. Worcester, PA is 38 and rain. Occasional flakes mixed in but basically rain at 3:50 PM.
  9. Montgomery County, PA. I remember the ice storm of 94. Unbelievable. I saw front end loaders lifting 4" to 5" thick large sheets of packed snow and ice off the roads and putting them in dump trucks. There was nothing to plow. It had to be literally dug up as a thick solid piece, lifted up and deposited into a dump truck. Crazy power outages for days.

    Hurricane Florence a hit or a punt?

    If we get any wind from this it will be tree trouble with the ground as wet as it is now and especially after the Sunday/ Monday rains.

    Lost weekend 8/11-8/12 OBS

    Worcester 3.04" at my location. 4.5" at a friend's location about 4 miles away toward North Wales. Locally the worst was in the Upper Merion area. Many car water rescues and a few home rescues with water up to the first floor windows. This was all this AM. Other than the runoff fed streams everything has receded. Chester Cty, Delaware Cty and parts of the city were in on it as well as seen in the pictures on this thread. I expect many areas in addition, but these are the ones I heard on the dispatches.

    Storm pretty much missed us here in Worcester. .26 of rain, some wind and lightning, but nothing close. Seemed to go to the north of us.

    Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    He "paid his dues" having been the, NY Times weather guy, weekend guy in Kansas, morning guy in Lexington, Ky, evening guy in Toledo and then Chief in Erie. Now he is back at State College, where is went to Penn State. (been back a year) He is teamed up with a very good young woman meteorologist, Brittany Boyer, in the roughly 3 Pm to 8 Pm slot who is from (I think) Royersford. Montgomery County is well represented. (He is off today, but back on Monday). The schedules jump around a bit especially in the summer due to vacation coverage.

    For those of you with Direct TV - the Accuweather Network is now on air 24 hours a day. This change took place today Aug 1st. (I'm a little partial as my son, is one of their on air meteorologists.) They have made some significant changes with much more live coverage and several new severe weather reporters running all over the country to cover big weather events. He is from Montgomery County, Pa and loves severe and winter weather reporting.
