    Pretty serious coastal we got going on here. But wheres the cold air? There will be mixing issues along 95.

    I’m on vacation, so I am not checking weather every nine minutes. Yesterday the forecast called for humidity. Right now, that humidity is coming down in sheets, accompanied by bolts of electricity that I think they call lightning.

    Was just going to say, October of 2011 was great for a lot of people, but it yielded THIS for the rest of the winter: So, I don't want locking in of ANYTHING at this distance for October! Lol

    Beware the false dawn of October snow. Central Park received 3in in Oct 2011. For that entire winter they got a whopping 7in!

    Yeup. I looked through my spreadsheet, and since 1948, we (north iowa) had 7 Octobers with over an inch of snow. All but 2 were warmer than average winters. And only 3 of the 7 had above average snowfalls for us.

    Picked up nearly an inch (0.83") of rain last night, very much needed. I often drive on unpaved roads, and it was kicking up quite the smoke screen when on them.

    The 40's??? My God, man, I would be frozen solid in those temps! I've got an electric blanket and my heater/fan, so I'm going to stick it out on the porch as long as possible. Nice heavy curtains out there, so maybe I can keep the cold at bay for a few more months!! How great would it be to sleep out there during a snowstorm? I need an igloo. This photo may explain why I love the heat...It's October with not a snowflake in sight, but Mom has me in my snowsuit.

    The race is on....if storms hold together their travel from Scranton to IMBY in Sussex County is about the same as my drive home from SE Morris County in NJ. Actually makes for a fun ride as I get to see it darkening on the way.....kinda scenic

    I know I'm wasting space, but it's slow now.....Back in the 80's we drove out to PA somewhere to go to a party. The party was dead so we put in our 'house music' tape and the party picked up. Someone replaced it with the Bay City Rollers. The party started fizzling, we went outside, the other people followed us essentially clearing the house. We went back inside and again put in our 'house music' and everyone came back in and started partying again. Again it was replaced with Bay City Rollers. We went back outside and everyone followed. We went back in.....Well, you understand, they were just a little behind the times out there, but the Bay City Rollers was born from that. The other joke is that I hooked up with Eddie Munster. It's not what you think, but the way she pulled her black hair back so tightly, she had the little "v" on her forehead, well, you get the picture there, too. Sigh. The day actually started down the Shore at Sandy Hook with vodka watermelon and other beverages...My friend caught crabs (he cast someone's fishing pole once and that is what latched on but another joke was born.) and ended up a couple hours drive into PA. Not sure if it's good or bad, but it definitely ranks as one the wilder and fun days of my existence. And now back to fair weather.

    Rain is tapering off, only 0.11 measured at the County airport. Much less than the 0.5-1.0 Albany was forecasting at the start of the day. Truly amazing how some areas so close to you can get hammered and you escape with very little. This has happened the last 2 months in my area(so many brown lawns). This kind of makes me wonder what will happen when the tide turns. NWS/Albany does have a 30% chance of showers/T-storms mainly after 5:00pm Thursday. This will probably happen since I have a outdoor wine/food pairing event tomorrow @ 5:30pm. The slightest hint of rain they keep it indoors. After that a great weekend looks to be on tap. However I will remember this is from the folks that said I would get at least 0.5" of rain today. You gotta love weather.

    I missed McNeil's and Conforto's second. Was listening in my truck. What a game though. Was my son's first ever and he loved it. Got home and ordered 2 more tickets for his birthday, NY vs LAD 9/14. Coke Porch front row. And yea, my friend lives in Metuchen and i sent her a pic of their main drag flooded where it goes under amtrak's nec.

    Anyone know what was going on in 1950 to cause a VERY cold year? I put together a spreadsheet of our local weather using data from our local NOAA weather station. It goes back to 1948. I noticed that 1950 was a VERY cold year. From January 1950, through April 1951, the only month above average was October. Almost every other month was at least 3 degrees below. The average for that time period was 4.8 degrees below average. It also had one of the earliest recorded freezing temps in our area (north Iowa). I did try to do some looking around online, but couldn't find anything. Just wondering if anyone here with more knowledge might be able to see what the heck happened that year. Thanks!

    Rainfall totals from Upton are here. Couple of 3"+ amounts. They have Fairfield County's highest amount 5 miles away from me with 1.3" more than what I got. Mt Holly totals here. Edison with 4" Probably needed this day's obs in its own severe thread in hindsight.

    My credentials are that I probably tend to think too much about stuff. All stuff. Not to brag, but If you can think about it, I've probably thought about it. It can be debilitating (just ask my wife) lol Something that I would like to make sure gets brought into a climate, or any environment discussion is the impact that the landscape modifications humans have made over relatively short times to huge expanses of the globe and that they are also considered as a contributing factor. Sometimes I feel that when people put forth the premise that human endeavors are not substantial enough to have a global impact because the planet is so gosh darn big and dynamic,.. and what could little old us possibly ever do to it? I feel that is usually a good time to remind people to think about some of the amazing feats of progress, or of destruction, depending on your viewpoint, that have occurred and are continuing to occur. Desertification ranks fairly high on this list. It really wasn't that long ago with the invention of the iron furrowing plow that the Great Plains were destroyed.The Dust Bowl of the 1930s was a significant event that sort of got some attention. That destruction, or progress, also included huge swaths of post glacial fresh water marshes, lakes, bogs,swamps, and all manner of wetlands that were drained and are still currently being drained and tiled throughout the country. Also rivers and streams that were diverted and manipulated for transportation and for agriculture. Plenty of good old North America is deposited in the Gulf of Mexico now and plenty more still heading down stream everyday. The center of North America, if nothing else, was a gigantic sponge. It was full of nutrients and water from the past millennia and that was the basis for the exordinary biomass and the diversity of life that has unfortunately been quickly and easily exploited since it was discovered. Well, discovered isn't quite right. There were people here who were doing fine and would have probably been better off had they not been discoved. Granted they too had done their share of modification pre industrialization, but nature still had a fairly competitive chance and it appears that there may have been some conscious effort by these humans who were discovered here, to actually make a go of it living more in sync with the environment. Whether by necessity, or because they had more insight or reason, as I would like to think. Possibly they too would have ransacked the place if they had developed the means to do so. So, catching myself mid rant, sorry. These sorts of scenarios do affect the weather, sure it seems small and only locally at first. The forests south of me still generate their own cycle of showers in the heat of the summer(sadly less than they used to) But, imagine the original forests, from the plains to the Eastern seaboard. Combine with it the tall and short grass prairies, the marshes of the Great lakes that covered as much area as the Everglades, all essentially a single solid biological mass that tempered the climate. That would have had a huge impact on the water cycle and the temperatures of the hemisphere. It's not just here. Russian inland seas that are being used up, Iraqi marshes drained, tropical forests clear-cut,... drastic land modification everywhere you look. My opinion is that humanity hasn't slowed down or taken the time to thoughtfully think through the long term consequences of this fever pitched crusade to subdue the planet and all of the scary beasties lurking in the wilds whether they are real or imagined. For every last old growth giant tree, there's someone who wants to kill it. For every last example of any beast, be it lowly or majestic, there's someone who wants to kill it. It's very sad and disheartening. Longtime aquarium enthusiast here, and I have reighned over these micro climates many times over my life. I have been using the dirty unbalanced fish tank analogy for decades for what we have created. There will probably still be life on the planet even after us, but it's not gonna be very pretty. There is the thing where the world's oceans go out of wack and turn rancid from the deaths and subsequent decay of huge amounts of sea creatures and the gasses go into the atmosphere and that puts a pretty abrupt end to things that need to breath air in the form that we are used to. I think it's tied to one of the theories about one of the previous mass extinctions fairly early in the fossil record. Could conceivably occur again if we keep messing things up. I'm with you guys on all of this stuff. Pollution, invasive species, greed, waste, solar max, solar min, tilt wobbly axis syndrome, etc. And sure, volcanos and astoroid impacts, who could forget those... Blows my mind that people don't understand the significance of a few degrees and how it can disrupt so much. They must not get it because they are numb to what has already been lost. So much is collapsing everyday all around us and yet our everyday lives are still not impinged upon enough to even notice as long as we get quick service at the drive-thru. Me, personally, I've been worried about the corn crop failing this year. If not this year, some year soon. From what I can tell we are in a precarious situation. We can't expect to keep doing the damage and not expect to pay the consequences. Too late to just rinse the cartridges and do a partial water change. Also I sincerely don't want to offend anyone with my views or opinions. My messed up wit, sarcasm and general dorkness can sometimes be misinterpreted when I put it in word form. I've found it weird how science discussions have become so volatile now that the internet exists. Seems like in the early 80s in my zoology and ecology and science classes we had a good grasp of what was going on. Then boom. The rest of the world went forward and the United States stuck its head in the sand, or something.

    I've trick or treated in a driving snow storm before! It's been a while, but at least once in the 90s, and once in the early 80s I definitely remember a few inches of snow on Halloween! *Crosses fingers* ;)

    After looking it up, I'll take that year all day long. Trace on Christmas Day, nearly 20-inches between Jan-Mar. Lets lock that one in.

    As mentioned earlier most of the precip missed my town. Only 0.04 recorded at County airport as of 17:53 However some nice rain falling now(nothing severe) but some thunder with this batch you see on the radar. That was the main thing I was hoping for(rain). I do enjoy a good storm so don't get me wrong.

    My hunch is this winter is going to be very difficult to forecast for the US. The extended period of -NAO conditions for May-Aug, with slowly declining warmth in Nino 3.4 is fairly unusual. 2016 kind of had both (but the declines were much faster, and -NAO was weaker). If the -NAO persists beyond August, it is a weak cold signal for the Southwest & Dakotas in September. It becomes a weak cold signal for the eastern 2/3 of the US in October, with the strongest signal over roughly Missouri. Warm signal NW. For November, a -NAO is a strong cold signal in the SE US, a weak cold signal east of the Mississippi, excluding Maine. Weak warm signal in the West. In 2012, the -NAO began in late Spring and persisted for a while. Nino 4 warmth broadly favors a warm December east of the Rockies, pending super +PDO or super -NAO interference.

    thought I'd pop in for a quick mid-summer update....wow, what a summer. Who would have thought it would be this stunning back in May?? haha. Mid-June a switch was flipped here and it hasn't stopped. I was down south the first half of July and hear it was scorching up here. I returned 11 days ago and it's been gorgeous and sunny non-stop. We had some overnight rain earlier this week, but otherwise very dry and perfect. Apparently there was one day with huge storms while I was away. I came home to an almost full rain gauge! Long range forecast looks like more of the same. This summer is shaping up to be a great one. Enjoy folks! Hope it's the same everywhere (admittedly, I've not followed the weather outside my own backyard due to the benign pattern)
