  1. Spring 2018 banter

    Funny that the one in 2011 came after a historic heat wave in July 2011 that saw EWR reach 108 degrees and the one in June 1995 came before a historic stretch of heat and dry weather that saw widespread wildfires in our area in August 1995. August could have gone totally rainless if it wasn't for that renegade band of showers that hit us on the night of the 31st.

    Huge delays all the way to NYC with that Labor Day 1998 event. Spring "severe" events are usually a nothing around here. It's the most boring of the 4 seasons.

    I'm glad we got that one significant april snow, usually we get one of those per decade or so. It would have been historic if we could have gotten another one. I don't think of "Spring" weather actually starting in our area until after April 15-20.

    Well they did have a very late season snow in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina. Also about 3 inches of snow fell in the Poconos yesterday.

    I wonder about that myself. The way we measure snow now, March 1888 might also have been over 30 inches. It was measured at between 26-35 inches in Brooklyn and Queens anyway. I saw a 32 inch figure for Southern Queens.
  6. Even with the cool down coming for next week, I think we might be done with freezing temps. This morning might have been our last freeze here.
  7. well the tree pollen has been really bad
  8. it also explains all the blocking regimes, everything is moving slower.
  9. Just east of JFK we had a hard freeze this morning, 4/11, and this might be our last freeze for the season.
  10. Well looks like that's where we will stay although there are some some serious questions about the totals from the two spring storms at NYC (as well as other storms this season). In reality, all of us probably did have the snowiest spring on record.
  11. When we had that 4" storm here in April 1996, like two days later it was 83 degrees.

    The post Valentine's Day storm in February which occurred in the middle of a warm pattern is one that immediately comes to mind where the GGEM picked up on it first.

    Yeah who knows if we'll ever get this chance again in our lifetimes. I also noticed that Don said that we might return to a colder pattern close to the end of the month, but it would be extremely difficult to get any measurable snow by then. I see that NYC has never had any measurable snow in May (latest is 0.5" on April 29) but I know there have been traces in May, even just a few years ago, close to Memorial Day! And there's been measurable snow in southern NJ in May.

    Must be talking about an el nino evolution. If it happens later, like 2002 then we could still have a hot summer. But if it happens by, say, July, it could be more like 2006 or 2009.

    I'm satisfied we had our April snowstorm already lol and the most snow that's ever fallen here post equinox. But if we dont get the Saturday storm (even DC looks like 1-3 inches now) there's a chance we could still get the Tuesday storm before we transition over to summer?
