    summer banter thread

    In Bar Harbor this week and noticed Caribou art an all time warmest month record in July by a decent margin: July 2018 was the all-time warmest month at Caribou, maine. The average temperature of 70.9 degrees was 5.3 degrees above average (1981-2010 averages). Prior to this July, the warmest month at Caribou was July 1970 with an average temperature of 69.6 degrees. Weather records have been kept at Caribou since 1939. All of the top 10 warmest months at Caribou have occurred during the month of July. Here are the 5 all-time warmest months at Caribou: July 2018: 70.9 degrees (F) July 1970: 69.6F July 1952: 69.5 July 1959: 69.4 July 2010: 69.3

    Spring 2018 banter

    What a great run. That is real winter.

    Spring 2018 banter

    Agree with this. Another point is that winter is a higher stakes game for amateur(and professional) forecasters than the other seasons A forecast bust of .25" of liquid in a May rainstorm goes unnoticed by most people, but 3 or 4 extra inches of snow scares a whole lot of people. The way we overreact to snow is a whole other story...
  7. Wish I could relate, cold season never lasts long enough imo. April is colder than October on average so it’s weird to see the snow hounds anxious for snow in October but wanting 70s in April We were a little west of Binghamton this morning and got into some moderate snow for a couple of hours. Hopefully a couple more chances this month before the inevitable warmth comes.

    Still 75% cover here even after today’s rainfall, very surprising.
  9. You can see the upward trendline well on BNL's snowfall chart, but the year to year volatility since the mid 90's has been wild as well. There is probably a stinker in our future..

    Still 95% here as well, although it rapidly disappears as you head south of Rt 25A

    Out here '04/'05 would have slightly eclipsed '95/'96 during DJFM. Looks like BNL's totals during DJF '04/'05 were a good bit higher than what you got in Smithtown. But yeah, 60" this winter is impressive..
