  5. back in April 1976 the day before the heat wave started I was watching the evening weather and I noticed how warm it was in North Carolina...There were no 80's or 90's in our forecast...I wondered to myself is that warmth going to make it up here...It was 25 degrees a few mornings before and the thought of having a heat wave wasn't on any ones radar...

  8. I was looking at the top 14 mei years and the only one that saw a la nina one year and another el nino the next are the winters of 1902-03...1903-04...1904-05...most of the years were the first year el nino or two or three or more la nina-neutral followed...
  9. worse than that is a rainstorm a few days later...nothing worse than seeing a nice snow cover melt away during one day of rain...
  10. my favorite snowstorms are the ones that precede a cold spell and last at least a week before melting away...That's why I'll take Feb. 1978 over Feb. 2006 any day...
  11. Battery Park didn't hit 100 according to this article... https://bklyn.newspapers.com/image/55203578/ You have to look at the data from Central Park or LGA and see what the cloud cover was if any and wind direction and speed...1953 should have had days that were close to the record or higher than the record during that heat wave...
  12. it looks like 1953 isn't there...I checked the Utah climate site and there was no record...Threaded extremes does not show any top three hot days for the heat wave...the records are deceiving and should mention missing data...
  13. what ever it takes to snow I'm in...the last two years the biggest snowfalls came around the date of the lowest AO number...2016 was very negative...this year was slightly negative compared to most years...the nao also helped both times and was stronger in 2016...2016 needed a strong block to stop the influence of a strong el nino...weak blocks with a weak enso worked this year...the overall positive ao/nao helped make the last two years mild to say the least...
