    November Discobs Thread

    Clouds, light winds, and temps right around freezing is a perfect winter day.

    September Discobs Thread

    Yup, looks like a tie for 4th. September 2, 1980 takes the top spot with a 78/101.

    DCA is making a run to 90. Up to 88 on the 5 minute obs with the sun breaking out.

    Three consecutive 80° lows are in play if the rain holds off again today.

    April 7-8 snow event

    Steady light snow in Fredericksburg. A dusting on mulch and elevated surfaces.

    April 7-8 snow event

    A non-accumulating snow shower down in Fredericksburg right now.
  7. Not sure about DCA in particular, but for DC overall I believe it’s March 24, 1906 with a high of 28. April 18, 1875 has a high of 33.

    January Med/Long Range Disco Part 2

    I’m glad this is only loosely true in NC and not anywhere else.

    Great post. Do you know if that new station is online anywhere?

    Jan 8th Ice/Mix/Rain Event

    We don’t do ice we’ll and yet, ironically, perhaps our best city ice event in a few years comes with temps 33-35.

    Maybe as or more impressive with this cold are DCA's lows especially with UHI. How often do we get 8 (incl. tomorrow) days in a row or 12 out of 13 days with lows below 20? 12/27 19 12/28 16 12/29 19 12/30 22 12/31 16 1/1 13 1/2 13 1/3 13 1/4 16 1/5 13 1/6 11 1/7 ??

    Central and Eastern VA looks to be the big winner last night for cold temps (snow cover and relatively calm winds?). Many PWS stations in the 0 to -5 range with even a couple outliers hitting -5 to -10. Edited to add: 9 here in Shirlington for my coldest low in the last two years since my weather station has been installed.

    Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    1.2” in Shirlington. I think it actually overperformed here relative to others, and in line with many of the model runs from yesterday.
