  1. Are we buying the cold chasing precip Sunday night as a legit thread? Usually those don't work out for us.
  2. It would be really nice to get something next week. It's been a while, 2009 I believe, since we've had a good event leading up to Christmas.
  3. Surface freezing line still south of immediate DC metro at 18z.
  4. My radarscope app has some 15 inch pixels in Bluffton.
  5. Any reports of flooding in bluffton? Got some friends who evacuated and I'm wondering how the area is doing.
  6. LWX all in on the heat for this weekend: Downtown DC: Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 81. Southwest wind around 8 mph. Saturday: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2pm. Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 101. Heat index values as high as 117. Southwest wind 8 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 81. Southwest wind around 8 mph. Sunday: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon. Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 102. Heat index values as high as 110. Southwest wind 7 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
  7. 98/74 at DCA HI: 110 The weatherbug stations around the airport have DP of 77, 77, and 80.
  8. Anyone have a recommendation of a state park to drive to for meteor watching? Also any idea which area has the best chance to see some good clearing? I'm willing to drive about 60-80 minutes from DC.
  9. Dews in the mid 70s. Went on a trail run this afternoon in rock creek and man did I sweat. It's like Houston Texas level humidity out there.
  10. Roasting with partly sunny skies and good clearing to the southeast of my location.
  11. I always forget how unpleasant dew points in the low 70s are over winter. 1.5 mile dog walk and it looks like I just went for a run.
  12. That was legit....probably gusted over 60 mph here.
  13. Looks like around 30,000 total without power between pepco and dominion in our area.
  14. Yeah that's interesting. I guess I'd like to see a map of the yearly snowfall anomalies (not sure if that's the correct term). As in how much above/below average a certain location is.
  15. And before I lived in the LHV I lived in Queens, in the 80s and early 90s. During that time I remember (was only a kid) the TV mets always talking about highest accumulations north and west and it raining a lot more in the city.
  16. I'm originally from the Lower Hudson Valley, lived there from 94-02. Is it just me or are these nonstop city/NJ/LI jackpots sort of new? I remember a lot of times rain/snow lines around the Tappan Zee Bridge or sometimes north of there. It feels like the Mid-Hudson Valley and the Catskills are just a perpetual screw zone recently. Am I just imagining this or is it real? Edit: Just read up like 5 posts and see my questions answered immediately.
  17. Paul Jeffrey Kocin 23 mins · First,would just like to say what an honor it was to work with Nick Wiltgen, who was a long time member of TWC's radio network and passed away yesterday way too soon. There also is a preliminary estimate for NESIS for the blizzard, worked up by the NWS. It scored 7.49, placing it as a category 4 storm (crippling). It falls between the Feb 1983 snowstorm (6.3) and Pres Day Il in Feb 2003 (8.9), also cat 4 storms. March 1993 and Jan Blizzard of 1996 remain as Cat 5 storms (as well as the combination of the Feb 5-6 and Feb 9-10 storms). Why does Jan 1996 rate higher, you may ask? Heavier snow over a larger area and greater population.
  18. There is a car in the middle of my street totally burned, is it possible they spun their tires so much they ignited? Or was this just typical DC gang beef?
  19. Yeah I'm at a 23 inch snow depth as well. If I had kept up with the snowboard I'd suspect I'd be measuring 25+ because last night when I was using the snowboard my measurements were a little higher than the depth.
