  1. My boys and I competed in the Philadelphia Disc Golf open this past weekend. All three of us "cashed" and took home some prizes. So cool to share a new sport with the juniors. Looking forward to playing Manufacturers CC next week for a long awaited round of regular golf since my golf ball to the face hospital incident this past May. All healed and ready to tear it up

  3. Beautiful day to try the Chester Valley Trail for the first time. We parked at Exton Park and rode 5 miles east to Wegmans for lunch. Enjoyed it quite a bit!

  4. The exception may be let's say leaving the door open for November to undo October if the month is warm. It is still not a slam dunk as the 5 cold Novembers that have followed the 10 warmest Octobers have had 3 cold winters out of five. From FB Post: A long, long, long time ago when I was an intern at Newark, I did a study on the relationship between fall temperatures and ensuing winters for NYC from 1900-87. The strongest correlations were warm October, warmer winter; cold November, colder winters. I wish I could find the graph, but October was a flat line (by decadal averages) duri

  5. Heads up guys/gals I had to install latest version of this forum and it messed up the theme a bit. Working with the guy who created it to fix the issues but it may take a few days.

  6. Exactly, we seem to usually go in the other direction of most pre winter forecasts. Wasn’t it last season a lot of people called for an historic winter? You guys stick to the pro stuff I’ll weenie myself out with the almanac, more exciting, and when I say almanac I mean the heisy almanac. 60s during the week and blizzards on the weekend....heisy is back baby.

  8. After years of searching, I’ve finally found (and purchased) my dream cottage in Harrington, Maine! It’s “off the grid” so now I need help finding the best cellular weather station and cellular security camera so I can keep tabs on things remotely when I’m not there! Thank you for any thoughts you have!

  10. It's going to be interesting to see how this Nina plays out because we honestly haven't seen one like this year in a while or maybe forever. While, the cool anomalies along the equator we have seen, the amount of bath water throughout the pacific is something we haven't seen combined with a moderate Nina. While I do think tropical forcing is not going ot be favorable for us for most of the winter one thing that I do like right now with SST is all that warm water stacked up along the west coast. If you look at all the bad la ninas we had in the past there was cool water along the west coast so

  12. Welcome to October, normally a great transition month with plenty of variety. 1st frost & freeze for many in the area, tropics still solidly in play, last taste of summer time warmth & yes the possibility of the that four letter S word making an appearance. Unfortunately over the past 10 years the month has been marred by unprecedented warmth, officially at PHL there hasn't been a below average OCT since 2009 & since 2010 the month has averaged 2.5 degrees above 57.5 degree monthly average. Some OCT climo facts & figures for Philadelphia: Highest temp - 96 (10/5/1941)

  13. Congratulations to @White_Mtn_Wx for winning the contest and will spend many a snowy evening reading about SuperStorm Sandy! Philly's high was 97F, there were 36 days with highs of 90F or higher and there were a combined 275 severe weather warnings issued by Mount Holly between June 1st & September 30th ( @Chubbs came closest with that). Other honorable mentions @PreserveJon had the right highest temperature & @Parsley had the correct number of 90 degree days. Thank-you everyone for participating!

  14. This is an important post as it heralds the unofficial start of PhillyWx weenie winter. When Heisi comes out of summer hiding, sound the trumpets, bookmark your favorite winter pages, apologize in advance to your family and friends, and prepare for emotional swings and long, dark, lonely nights as weenies unite for a hopefully less depressing winter ahead.

  15. Shark River in Neptune City, NJ yesterday, added one to our foursome for a hole, fox literally followed a few feet behind us for the entire hole Pine Barrens in Jackson, NJ today, awesome course & quite a workout from the 6700 yd blue tees in the wind, relative to my skill level was doing pretty well thru 10 holes then the proverbial doo doo hit the fan.

  23. thru yesterday PHL hanging on to a below average month by the slimmest of margins, that will end after today PHL SEPT average is 69.1 degrees, current forecast would project out to a 69.4 degree finish, not below average but the not a top 10 warm month & the coolest SEPT since 2013 feels like a win. Prior to the start of the official / unofficial summer stretch from May-Sept if you would have offered me no 90 days MAY & SEPT, a JUN max temp of 92, an AUG max temp of 93 & a July max temp of 97 degrees I would have said where do I sign. It was all about a toasty July &

  25. Here are the Philly averages over different timeframes including the recent trends since 2010 & the current status of the pending 1991-2020 climate normal. These figures are pure averages & don't take into account any potential smoothing or adjustments from the Climate Center. The only below average month since 2010 has been NOV, likewise that's the only month that wouldn't see an average increase for the pending 30 year normal. With that being said there's still next month to go so a torch month could change that scenario. Regarding MAR while 6 of the past 11 years have be

  26. I estimated badly looking at the camera the other day. We actually had 10" of snow here near Colebrook, NH. Mostly all gone except in the woods. It's been in the mid 50's in the day and mid 40's at night with a snoweater wind.

  27. Couldn’t be happier with this year’s aerate and overseed. The weather the past 4 weeks has been perfect for it. (Just had to water a lot the first 10 or so days). Mowing every 3 days now.

  32. Backyard is a work in progress with way more clover but we have a major project in the months ahead so a lot will get torn up and removed with a paver patio/fire pit going in. Notice the difference at the back of my property where the open space is. No watering or fert. happening back there.

  35. nothing like a beautiful fall weekend & waking up MON morning to a 1st place football team - LOL colors starting noticeably earlier this year, locally the cooler weather & near average precip over the past 2 months should be good combo for the leaves this season, last year was definitely a crappy color change with the extended hot dry period from SEPT into early OCT

  37. After the 2018 season the Eagles were forced to decide between Wentz or Foles, there was no way from a cap standpoint they could pay a backup QB $20M+ / year. The decision to choose Wentz was the correct one at that time. Wentz certainly has issues but with that being said by far the biggest problem with the organization is the front office particularly Howie. Since 2017 the drafts have been horrendous which is why they are forced to spend $$$ signing aging free agents & subsequently are currently up against the cap. You don't recover from drafting Arcega-Whiteside over D.K. Metcalf. The O
