  1. It's done this before in the summer but went back.
  2. That shows that the 1981-2010 average is not average for today's climate.
  3. Above the 1981-2010 norms is an easy call. those so called averages are not normal temperatures for today's climate.
  4. After Tuesday it will be cooler,so that's doubtful unless Monday and Tuesday are well above normal.
  5. It's amazing how much more snow and cold we get than the Avoca area which is not a reflection for northeastern Pa. During last March's blizzard almost every area from northern Lackawanna county into central Wayne and Susquehanna county had around 30 inches or more of snow while the Avoca area had only around 22 inches.
  6. Yes in relation to average the coast has done better. 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 were above average in snow but nothing compared to 92-93,93-94 and 95-96 all which had well over 100 inches. 2016-2017 was at least as good as 2013-2014 snowfall wise but the temps were above average. Those 3 winters in the 1990's were all quite cold,especially 93-94 and 95-96.
  7. I'm talking north of Scranton. I agree, elevation has something to do with it...areas over 1000 or 1200 ft do much better. In relation to normal the coast has lucked out. My area had less than 30 inches and people have told me that is one of the lowest totals ever. The 2 previous years we did well, but less than average the previous 2 winters.
  8. That's true as I have heard that from several people in northeastern Pa.
  9. The Poconos and endless mountains region have done quite well during that period.
  10. That's not a hard call an above normal fall, in reality it will be normal for the last 10 years or so.
  11. That's the trend so why change in regards to future months.
  12. It seems we're warming at close to 1 degree every decade, this does need to stop!
  13. Normal is based on 1981-2010 averages, if you add about 1.5 to 2 above that then that would be the true normal for today's climate.
  14. That proves in my opinion that the 1981-2010 averages are meaningless, 1.5 to 2 degrees above those temps are what is really normal for the current climate.
  15. The cities in the northeast are perhaps warming up the fastest of anywhere. Rural sections not as much, perhaps elevation or more trees and less concrete in those areas.
