    Just kidding! Bright, powerful sunshine is out now again in Hyattsville. Lol
  5. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    40/23 in Hyattsville. Was sunny from 8AM - 11 or so, now starting to cloud over. You can see the high cloud cover moving in from the west on the last few frames of the GOES: http://weather.cod.edu/satrad/exper/?parms=regional-northeast-02-48-0-100

    I have that too. I use this one because it's a really quick way to get current conditions and forecast from NWS. Except for today lol

    Lol this was a good glitch on the radar express phone app.
  9. February 7th Snow To Rain Event

    Hoping that those of you at higher elevations NW of the cities do well tomorrow. I've been around the DC area for long enough to know that fall line and UHI folks like myself don't do great in these events. Despite the cloud cover today, it's still 36 here.

    Yeah I don't want to clog up the thread much more. I was having the same issue - usually you can just copy/paste from pdfs but this one wasn't cooperating - but google came to the rescue. I just uploaded the PDF to this website: https://pdftables.com/ and it worked like a charm
  13. February Mid/Long Range Discussion

    Yeah, the way I looked at the chart - in the past 128 winters, 61 of them have had less than 15" of snow. And most of those - a lot less. Every year, it's basically a coin flip if DC gets more or less than 15" or so.

    PSU, you're exactly right. Can't have less than 0". OK so I like charts. So I made one. I downloaded the data from here: http://www.weather.gov/media/lwx/climate/dcasnow.pdf. That dataset goes way back to 1888, and measurement locations changed; infer what you want about climate, and the meaning of the differing measurement locations. Any mistakes are my own... I can upload the XLS if anyone wants it. also, sorry if someone has made this before or if it's easily available somewhere else :-D
