  1. 34 for the low here. I think one of our subforum members, DRVETS, has one of the weather stations closest to my house at his office. Maybe he'll chime in and confirm... Have you guys checked out the visual satellite this afternoon? There's so much east to west movement it's amazing. We're in this convergence zone with clouds backing in off the ocean mixing with a cloud bank popping from the S and a cold front cloud bank pushing in from the west. It looks so cool https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/conus_band.php?sat=G16&band=GEOCOLOR&length=48
  2. I don't really trust it if it has been windy at all while it's raining. The house is set really close to and below the street about 30 feet with huge trees right behind it so they put the station at street level on the roof of the house. When it's calm it's right in line with everything else in the area but a bit of wind and it doesn't register correctly. Even though it's on the roof I do think it's actually indicative of temps because it's so close to the street and the hill it sits on is so steep. I've met the woman a few times now and we talked about her maybe moving it so it works better, I know how it's supposed to be located but their property doesn't lend itself to doing it properly which is why I've never gotten one because ours doesn't either. On the upside, I don't think it's likely to get clogged with leaves because of its exposure and there are no trees above it.
  3. Station on my block has .83, ~2 miles south is 1.6 and ~1.5 west has 1.14 and 2 north is .92 so I don't know what I got but it's the second biggest total since May.
  4. I can't be overcome .73" today. One of my biggest one day totals since May.
  5. Ya know that's a good idea. Now I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
  6. On the upside a bit of snow would do wonders for soaking the ground so it can accept more water more quickly although it's not in bad shape at the moment. Nice day today, tomorrow looks good too, should dry the grass out nicely for a final mow for the year although I may have to do one more to mulch the leaves.
  7. Yeah all at once would be useless and a likely disaster. To really do any good it would need to be slow, like over two weeks, but steady. Is that another Halloween cancel snowstorm? That would be cool but not with all the leaves that are still on the trees.
  8. Two day total under a half inch. I was hoping that tropical season would give the drought a kick and do our wells some good but that didn't happen, doesn't look like there's much chance of a 10" slow deluge ahead either. It could be a long winter waiting for those proverbial April showers.
  9. Yeah, we'll see. If HPN gets .25 I won't be surprised but that ~30 miles is going to make all the difference. You mention the parallel with a winter storm, lol, in these cases it's fringe city here. I can usually smell the snow 15 miles south...
  10. I got that extra hundredth, the station on my street is .27 and there's a .31 two miles away.
  11. Still at .27 here, it hasn't rained since pretty early this morning. It sounds like most of what's incoming will stay south and east of me so I'm not expecting much more. What do you think WDrag, does it make it to the W'chester/Putnam border or is 287 the break line for any more significant precip?
  12. Heh, .26 here too. One local station is at .3 though. It's cold too. I think I'm aging out of appreciating raw, wet fall days
  13. I think that after the leaves go down and I can figure out what to cut he's gonna lose a bunch of shit but the stuff facing their driveway will stay intact. The brush fire idea is more appealing though. Looks like another storm is going to be less wet for us up here. Hopefully this pattern where the heavier precip is from the city south doesn't hold after mid December.
