  1. Thanks for the link; that was precisely what I wanted.
  2. I've been asked to recommend to a colleague (an Israeli theoretical computer scientist currently in a post-doctoral program in New England) a good introductory book on weather --- for her. Can anyone make any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Harold
  3. Why do these things always come in with early models showing bullseye at or near Philly, then nearly always drift northwards to put us in the mixline or even further south? Haven't the models learned anything or is this purely anecdotal or stochastic?
  4. Every time I hear the name of a winter storm I need to watch my blood pressure.
  5. I'd go with the Euro this time. NAM hasn't yet proven itself reliable in the winter quite yet. I don't mind being wrong. Frankly, I don't care if I never see another snowflake again as long as I live.
  6. I just want to say that I kept the NWS's slides from the 5 p.m. 3/19/18 briefing and it was surprisingly accurate. It predicted a range of 8"-12" and that's pretty much what happened, and it said there was 90% confidence of > 2" and 10% chance of >13". It warned of a "significant" impact from heavy snow and merely an "elevated" risk of gusty winds (which, at least in the western suburbs thankfully never really materialized). Folks tend to remember what they want to remember (those big storms that go bust and come in as rain; or those surprise storms with worse effects than anticip
  7. Just don't. My office is in Blue Bell. I was away last Friday but coworkers reported nightmare drives from this area and Norristown east towards the City. My plan is to take work home and hunker down.
  8. 34, dry in Bala Cynwyd. Radar shows virga overhead. Beam me up, Scotty. There's no intelligent life down here.
  9. That is an amazing cut off to the SE. How reliable?
  10. Was planning two nights of stargazing Saturday & Sunday night northwest of Allentown. Sunday's looking to be a washout now....Saturday a cloud-out. Serious bummer. Could someone please blow this thing out to sea?
  11. I'm supposed to work at a science fair Friday evening from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. I hope they have the good sense to make a call early.
  12. I am looking to determine sky cover for a particular point in time in 2014 (I am litigation a matter and I believe the location and angle of the sun played a significant part in the incident). I was able to get the data from the NCDC as to precipitation and temperature range for the day, but I am looking for the kind of output that I used to get when NCDC issued those monthly summaries. Anyone know where I could find those. (I used to get those, and actually *had* that month in a binder, but when we moved in July I chucked everything assuming it was "easily accessible" online.) Thank
  13. I really it's OT, but the new host is discernibly better over Tapatalk. My name's Harold and I'm a flashaholic....
