  1. I like the house cool at night, but its been a bit of a challenge even with a box fan in the window to keep it 70-68 over night. I also like to see how long I can run without needing AC or Heat, got a decent streak going, but its looking like odds favor warmth next week.
  2. Yeah, Im enjoying this. No heat or air needed as an added bonus. Not mad about nissing that tropical over the weekend either, but Id be crying in December at that cutoff.
  3. Wonder what is showing up on PBZ radar? Pretty sure it's not raining. Some sort of malfunction?
  4. At least the initial batch looks to stay south. Cloud cover from that convection probably also helps us out a bit, but not 100% sure we miss everything based on some short term models showing at least a few sporadic cells before the front comes through.
  5. Yeah, these guys need to take this talk to a place thats appropriate for weather talk.
  6. Yeah, The line is weakening pretty quickly now, that probably saved us from the worst winds, but rain and lightening show did not disappoint.
  7. Pretty rare to be in enhanced risk area. Wouldn't mind seeing some boomers, but I hope we escape any major damage if the threat materializes.
  8. Found tonights NWS discussion to be confusingly entertaining. .SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/... The surface trough will not swiftly pull away Friday as its fearless progression slows in an attempt to occlude and collocate under the upper low. If you are concerned about rainfall, we will take a moment to speak now on it: upper-level dry air reinforcement behind the cold/occluded front should limit high- QPF rainfall into the day. With showers only resulting from a reinforcing shot of cold air aloft overriding higher humidity surface conditions following diurnal temperature trends, our precipitation deficit will stay in the red. So far, we are 0.66 inches short of our mid-month average rainfall. While we will not have the driest June on record, we will certainly not match the record 10.29 inches the area received in June of 1989. Though the region has had a recent reputation of being dry, shower activity will persist in Pennsylvania and West Virginia through the afternoon, with the best shortwave- enforced ascent. If you are a dry weather lover, good news! Friday will not be a washout, with only isolated to scattered showers decreasing toward evening as the trough pulls away. This un-notable weather will not go down as folklore, with dry and typical conditions returning evermore (or at least until next week). There is moderate to high confidence in dry conditions late Friday evening through midnight for anyone who may happen to be outside for one reason or another. There is high confidence that the upper trough develops into a closed low over the weekend over the northeast. This will return north-northwesterly flow aloft, and stream down drier Canadian air. An approaching surface high will leave conditions pleasant over the weekend with mostly clear skies and seasonable temperatures.
  9. Smoke is pretty intense for sure. Made for a really bright orange view of the sun. Almost looks like it's foggy out, but its smoke. Trying to get over a respiratory cold and I can definitely feel it making it harder to breath. Normally I don't notice anything different during these air quality alerts, so must be the combination of the two.
  10. Its been absolutely gorgeous, but going to need some rain here pretty soon. Noticing some lawns are starting to get that late July / early August look with some brown spots showing up. I was wondering about the dew points, pretty low for the time of year for sure. That map of nearly 0 qpf for 384hr is pretty rare in and of itself especially added onto the streak we are already on.
  11. Next 5-7 day period shaping up to be pretty lousy for sure. Would like to see this type of pattern setup in winter, periodic snow chances via ripples of energy rotating around that cutoff low taping into some lake enhancement.
  12. Looks like worst of this is just NW of the city, in those stronger storms.
  13. Couple of weakish convective showers rolled through, but also tapped into that wind potential. If anywhere manages to get a stronger storm things could get real with the wind.
  14. Should be interesting to watch this snow squall potential develop today. Time of year should help boost instability by the time it gets to our area.
  15. Beautiful wintry evening for sure. Steady light snow now for past hour with little brief heavier bursts. Starting to accumulate on the roads now. Have to admit I was surprised snow lasted on the ground all day despite sun angle.
