  1. severe weather is the last thing we need with the virus still around...I hope it doesn't happen but in some places it will get it...we don't need power outages or other problems from severe weather on top of what we are experiencing now...
  2. we could use some warm dry days but until we get the neg ao out of the way we will continue to see some cool dreary days...this happens almost every Spring now...
  3. the neg nao will have little help from a more neutral ao...the nao is forecast to dip pretty low but rebound mid month...the ao looks positive mid month...I think the first week or two in April will continue the every other day of rain and cool with one or two brief warm days...After mid month break out the shorts and tanning lotion...
  4. the more heat the merrier and it cant get here fast enough...I wouldn't count on my la nina before it hatches...
  5. 1867-68 got a foot of snow on 12/11/67 and 3/21/68...I'm surprised the cold snowstorm in January 1857 was left out?... 1857 from the ny daily tribune... http://chroniclingam...-20/ed-1/seq-5/
  6. look at the bottom of the 4th column of this page...it has a record of snowstorms up to 1872...it does not show any for 1857 which is an error... https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1873-01-01/ed-1/seq-1/ 1866-67 was the snowy winter you mentioned... 1867 storms... January 1867 http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1867-01-18/ed-1/seq-4/ http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1867-01-21/ed-1/seq-5/ Feb 1867... https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1867-02-22/ed-1/seq-5/ March 1867 http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1867-03-18/ed-1/seq-5/
  7. I remember the 79 degrees in 1963...The first warm day of the year...I was 14 and had the world by the you know what...Now the world has me by the you know what...
  8. I was reading about the storm in 1921 and it does not mention sleet...I looked up the local climate data for the storm and it showed the storm started as rain briefly...2.68" of precipitation and 12.5" of snow on the ground...it must have been a very wet snow but 35mph winds made 6-8ft drifts.. https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83045774/1921-02-21/ed-1/seq-1/
  9. I was hanging out with the boys one day on the corner candy store when a bird flue in the open door...it was flying around into things until it fell to the floor...I went over to it and stuck out my finger...the bird jumped on my finger and I walked two blocks to the pet store with this bird on my finger...I told the owners what happened and left the bird with them...That was my good deed for the week...
  10. I tried kicking a football on the sleet on that Saturday night in 1965 and my elbows still hurt from falling on them...January 1965 had four straight weekends with snow or sleet...it was a very good month...the fifth weekend had snow in the forecast but the storm sailed south of us...
  11. I started this in February...perfect timing with whats going on...it passes the time... Video (3).mov
  12. it was Feb 1920 that had the three day storm that was 1/3 snow...1/3 sleet...1/3 freezing rain...March 1993 had 3" of sleet after the 9" of snow imby...it ended with an inch of rain and a dusting of snow...The March 1914 had a lot of sleet...Feb. 1921 had a lot of sleet...Feb 1940 also...Feb 1961 had hours of sleet mid storm...the earliest sleet storm I remember came on my 10th birthday 3/28/1959...
  13. the greatest mainly sleet storms of my life are...January 1965...Feb. 2007...March 2007... On January 1st 1869 NYC got 9" of sleet according to newspaper reports but the liquid equivalent does not show that...it shows 9" of snow or sleet from 0.75" of LE... 1869...storm... http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030272/1869-01-02/ed-1/seq-1/ http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1869-01-02/ed-1/seq-8/ http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030313/1869-01-02/ed-1/seq-4/
  14. the ao and nao are forecast to go negative for a few days before the end of the month...this would be the first time since mid December the ao will be negative...probably to little to late but it has snowed in April after a blah winter...if the ao/nao drive towards negative is short then April will be warm...
  15. the ao forecast has many members going negative near the end of the month...just in time for April...
