  1. NWS is slowly converging on that solution as well. My point and click are now 89/88 for Fri/Sat. Records for both days are 92 and might not be completely safe.
  2. SPC is a lot less bullish on this than they were yesterday. Upper flow won’t sync up as well with the front as was expected with the faster frontal passage that was previously depicted.
  3. Nothing I love more than a dry-ish frontal passage with slowly falling temps and dewpoints behind it.
  4. I’d watch the weekend cold front. Large swaths of severe potential from the SPC as that thing moves east.
  5. Not sure I can agree with you on Matheson. He had as many lapses that cost us goals, games, and eventually the series as Letang and Marino did. I thought the Ruhwedel/Friedman pairing played a solid series, but they’re of course role players. So maybe ultimately it wasn’t Crosby or Jarry, but actually the Dumoulin injury that really screwed us. Regardless, a fourth straight 1st round exit and all 3 of the teams in this city are officially in rebuilding mode. Would have been nice to enter this dark age without already having a 4 year streak of not advancing in the playoffs already under our belts.
  6. Let’s take this thread back to its roots and throw in a hockey complaint. Same crap, different year. Sullivan needs to go.
  7. Hard to tell how that plays out. GFS has been consistent in its depiction of a hurricane blasting across Florida in that timeframe so that could have some say in our weather in PA if it materializes. Euro does look quite chilly with that system coming out of the Midwest and tracking across the lower Great Lakes.
  8. Might be a stretch, but daily records are 92-93 in that timeframe. We’ve set daily record lows on 11 different May days since the last time we set a daily record high in May.
  9. I’m certainly not arguing that it makes it better, I’m with you that it looks wonky as all hell. It’s the Susquehanna River, not Lake Superior. Just relaying info about how the ASOS obs are calculated.
  10. MDT’s official high was 80, so the 81 was definitely a rounding of a Celsius number. I learned some new stuff about how this ASOS stuff works yesterday (or at least how it worked in 1998, when the below was published, and it’s possible it hasn’t changed). The 5-min obs are actually averages of five 1-min obs. It’s described in section 3.1.2 of the link below. https://www.weather.gov/media/asos/aum-toc.pdf
  11. That’s the Celsius thing. For example, 76F = 24.4C, which rounds to 24C (75.2F) and shows up as 75. Likewise, 78F = 25.6C, rounds to 26C (78.8F) and shows up as 79.
  12. For contrast, every 5-min obs at PIT since 2:50 has been 81. Every single one of them.
  13. Still, even if you take the 75 to be a 76 that was rounded to the nearest degree Celsius and the 81 to be an 80 that was rounded, you’re looking at a 4 degree increase in 9 minutes in the late afternoon of a sunny day. It’s odd.
