    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    It just gets me in the gut to see fresh thunderstorms building up over the Abacos, which aren't out of the bands yet... https://weather.cod.edu/satrad/?parms=subregional-Florida-14-24-1-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined

    NHC: 8:00 PM EDT Tue Sep 3 Location: 28.1°N 78.8°W Moving: NW at 6 mph Min pressure: 959 mb Max sustained: 110 mph ...looks like the forward motion doesn't really speed up until it's at South Carolina.

    I don't know, but will this do as a substitute?

    March 3-4, 2019 Snow/Rain Event

    Snow bordering on heavy snow, with steadily less rain in it. Just in the five minutes since I took this photo the bare patches on the grass have filled in, though sidewalks and streets are still snow-free

    March 6 -7 Noreaster Obs Thread

    Heavy rate of heavy snow. Just tried sweeping the latest couple of inches off the car -- by the time I got finished, the area I'd started with five minutes before needed sweeping again; it had accumulated almost half an inch in that time!

    March 7-8 possible snow threat

    I'm amused that every single point on that map will be disappointed that their levels are getting reduced by the 0z run compared with the 18z... except for our little area, which sees an increase... so of course we're jumping for joy. Including me :^) Edited to add: Oh, sorry, I missed those spots in Ontario whose totals are going up. Profuse apologies, Canadians! ;^)

    March 7-8 possible snow threat

    For some of us in Delaware County the answer may be "waiting for Comcast to restore internet service". Mine came back three minutes ago, after a three-day outage. (Guess which website I went to first? :^)
  10. Are they really going to hold the Eagles' victory parade on *Wednesday*, even though it's likely to be slushing and raining all day?? (Adding source: http://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/02/eagles_parade_route_time_day_w.html )

    The first flurries in Swarthmore started around noon. Now it's up to Definitely Flurrying, but nothing is coated yet.

    Tropical Banter Thread

    I'd just like to say a big THANK YOU to the americanwx admins who have kept this site running smoothly despite the crush of members (and nonmembers) reading and refreshing (and rerefreshing) the boards during this HSECH (which is my abbreviation for historic southeast coast hurricane, and why sure you can feel free to use it :^)
