  1. The problem is with the rain cooled air, would take some effort for air mass recovery later in the day.
  2. Possible top ten warmest March?
  3. Central Park will likely do something it has only done once in its history, have a February and March combine for only a trace of snowfall. Only other year to do that was in 2002.
  4. Not unheard of in April to have relative humidity in Central Park under 10%.
  5. A bit ironic, that day Central Park had a low temperature of nine degrees and that was just after a blowtorch January and most of February which introduced the modern era of blowtorch winters around here.
  6. Actually, we have had colder days in August, twice in Central Park history has a daily August maximum failed to reach 60 degrees.
  7. It seems to me that NWS is pushing this 'weather wire' protocol now. What confuses me is that the EMWIN internet feed, which was around for anyone to use with internet access for twenty years is being replaced by something that requires a 'user name' and 'password' from the NWS. That also requires sending your personal information to the NWS, which to me is like going to the National Football League web site for game scores and asking the user for their personal information first.
  8. Apparently, I am seeing the unfortunate fact that EMWIN internet feed is being discontinued on 2 December.
  9. As many hurricane force wind gusts as you will ever see for a coastal storm for NYC, Long Island and SE New England.
  10. The winter of 1997 - 1998 had more snow in astronomical spring than astronomical winter in Central Park.
  11. Be careful with the RGEM ensemble mean tonight because judging by the 00Z meteogram, a few outliers are driving the mean up. 00Z RGEM ensemble meteogram for Washington D.C.
