  1. March 7 Disc/Observations

    Exactly, rates picked up and we’re back to big flakes.
  2. March 7 Disc/Observations

    Rain rt. 3 Crofton, but it’s been mist/drizzle most of the morning. Wheres the rain/snow line? Was at least expecting snowTV.
  3. March 7 Disc/Observations

    Out of curiosity, why the skepticism? Just because of the bad luck so far this winter? Euro upping the amounts, the NAM with nice numbers. HRRR showing some great mesoscale banding... I'm not keeping track as well as most on here, but I see more and more positive things for NE MD and now even into some central parts.
  4. March 1-2 wind event

    For those who recognize the old Dairy Farm in Gambrills, I live across the street. The electric fence failed and backup (solar) hadn’t seen sun for days. The cows got loose... cops had to shut down the road for 15 minutes in both direction while the farmer could rally. About 40 cows were in the road. Really wish I saw a police tweet on it just to file away with the memories of this storm.
  5. March 1-2 wind event

    Pretty much a non-event in Gambrills/Odenton. Some flurries and a light breeze right now. Some gusts overnight were strong but never sustained and lots of calm breaks in between.
  6. March 1-2 wind event

    I guess imby, I was expecting more furious sustained winds, but they definitely die down for periods of time. More like strong gusts here and there.
  7. March 1-2 wind event

    Does the wind clear up during the day Saturday? Wondering about the Caps outdoor game at the naval academy. Would be tough to enjoy in 30mph winds
  8. February Mid/Long Range Discussion

    Any chance you'd like to share what guidance you're using or elaborate on details?
  9. February 7th Snow To Rain Event

    Where does the twitter link go to? (twitter blocked here)... Here is what I found: https://www.cocorahs.org/media/docs/Training_IceAccreation.pdf
  10. February 7th Snow To Rain Event

    What temp you got? My car said 33 before I went into work... I know its not completely accurate, but didn't feel like AAco would get anymore ice (at least not central).
  11. February 7th Snow To Rain Event

    15 minutes of freezing drizzle around 6am. It’s 33 now and not doing anything. Kinda boring here. Shockingly, 2 Chic-fil-a restaurants were closed do to inclement weather on Rt. 3 in Crofton. Lost a lot of business. Even more weird was the cars in drive thru waiting? The lights were off, nobody there and signs up.

    I second this. He's a nice guy, good personality, people can relate to him and his forecasts. I do think he does a good job explaining his points for the average person. He also has a great passion for snow, just like the rest of us. Problem is, just like you mentioned, it does pose some hype and there are people who relentlessly go with everything he says. I haven't checked him out for a while, but he was a big CMC fan and whenever it showed a different scenario, he pointed out why it would happen as CMC described. Either way, he is "selling" a product(s), and without the hype, it may hit the bank a bit.
  13. January 29-30th Rain/Flurries coastal and IVT

    Fat wet flakes starting in central AAco. Surfaces almost wet

    Sorta weather related question....My house sits up against a small treeline of very tall/mature trees. Just before that line, the builder planted a few dogwood or sugartree type trees that have not survived. Maybe 4 of them died (one was ran into by a landscaper or kid it looks like, and the others just maybe under watered or not enough sun. The county recently cut down some of the mature trees, so there is more light. Either way, I was thinking of planting some evergreen trees as replacement. They are far apart from reach other. Suggestions? Lastly, my co-worker said now is the time to plant them while still dormant season. Is that true for our area? I always figured march/april would be more appropriate? Am I wrong here?

    Just pulled up my transcripts... I took Weather & Climate with Dr. Tokay in Fall 2003, were you Spring or Fall? Never took the Tropical class. I ended up being a double major with InfoSys and Geography. Most of my Geography classes were for cartography and GIS (I got a certificate in both). I did take a few Economics class because it was part of my InfoSys degree. ECON101 that same semester in Fall 03' and then ECON102 in Spring 04' then ECON121 in Fall 04' and ECON122 in Spring 05.
