  1. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    The latest GFS brings the heat back by mid-month (after a brief "cool down").
  2. February 2018 Obs

    Could sneak a 70*F in there tomorrow if the front slows down a bit. But yeah, it's back into the 60s from here on out. It's kind of funny being disappointed about it though, because that's still above average.
  3. February 2018 Obs

    And 79*F it is. Oh well.
  4. February 2018 Obs

    A broken CU field has developed over ATL, so even 80*F may not happen. That said, we did make it to 80*F here again in Newnan (for the 3rd consecutive day).
  5. February 2018 Obs

    So far, ATL has tied the record high of 78*F today. Now let's see if it can finally get the elusive 80*F.

    As of today, the pear trees are in full bloom. Some of the late bloomers are now rapidly budding as well.
  7. February 2018 Obs

    After (yet again) the morning fog / stratus mixed out around noon, we made it to 80*F again here. ATL made it to 78*F (1*F degree off the record high of 79*F).
  8. February 2018 Obs

    We can't shake the ****ing stratocumulus deck for decent insolation. 79*F was at least achieved at ATL though, breaking the record of 74*F. We did hit 80*F here.
  9. February 2018 Obs

    ATL also set a record maximum low yesterday of 65*F (previous record was 62*F in 1997).
  10. February 2018 Obs

    Made it to at least 79*F today with the help of a bit of afternoon sunshine. ATL made it to 77*F, breaking the previous record of 75*F.
  11. And now you understand part of the reason why I moved down to your old neck of the woods in Metro Atlanta. But that said, it's been Detroit / Seattle-like cloudy since Friday (2/9/18) around here (If you combine a few hours of 3 days, we've had maybe 9 hours of total sunshine since then) despite temps well into the 70s and near 80*F and that doesn't look to change until at least Thursday. I'm NOT a happy camper about it either.

    *ONLY* made it to 76*F today, *WITH* generally cloudy skies. ATL made it to 75*F (record high for today is 78*F). Can only imagine how warm it would get if a decent amount of sun broke out.
  13. February 2018 Obs

    Currently up to 77*F, in spite of mostly cloudy skies. Probably will fall short of the record today at ATL though (only 74*F).
  14. February 2018 Obs

    MAde it to at least 78*F today with a fair amount of sunshine. However, it looks like ATL is going to fall just 2 degrees shy of the record high of 79*F. Correction: The previous record high at ATL was 76*F, so it was broken with a high of 77*F today.
  15. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    Wow! As of today, few trees are already blooming. Crazy!
  16. February 2018 Obs

    Other than a few peeks, we haven't seen the sun since last Friday. That said, despite mostly cloudy skies, temps did make it into the low 70s yesterday with potentially mid 70s happening today.
  17. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    BTW, I think this weather is (at least partially) tied to positive feedback from the worsening drought in TX / OK / NM...
  18. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    Already beginning to see buds show up on the trees. The air no longer has that "winter" feel to it for sure.
  19. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    I'm in Newnan, GA. I'm originally from Detroit, so I was honestly kind of hoping for a warmish / snowless winter for a change. The "once in 25 year" snow that occurred here would be a run-of-the-mill snow event there.
  20. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    Of course it depends on one's specific location, but at least here, we had the one of the worst snow/ice storms in 25 years (bearing in mind we only average 1" of snow for an entire season) and ended up 3*F below normal for the month The last 1/3 of the month was ok, but it didn't make up for the majority of days featuring double digit negative departures during the first 2/3 of the month.
  21. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    REally looking forward to the Spring-like weather after the extremely cold / snowy January. Could get up into the 70s here today, despite the clouds / rain.
  22. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    BTW, most of this fell in a span of 2 hours.
  23. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Estimates suggest we picked up around 2" here in Newnan. Everything's packed down with snow. It was ripping for a bit with huge flakes too, but it has let back up. Still a steady accumulating snow with small flakes right now.
  24. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    It's snowing at a pretty good clip here in Newnan. Already got a coating on grassy surfaces. It started off as snow BTW (no rain).
