  1. Didnt note the timestamp. Just getting the rust off for autumn lol.
  2. Cant wait til winter. Such huge differences in the very short term between the GFS and the new GFS-para
  3. Maybe already been discussed but I see we have a new GFS-para now. Fun times.
  4. Both rounds uneventful here yesterday.
  5. Pretty uneventful here. Downpour, a few distant rumbles of thunder, and 2 gusts. No damage, no hail, no naders.
  6. Bomb Cyclone? Thundersnow? https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mother-s-day-weekend-snowstorm-could-bring-bomb-cyclone-thundersnow-n1202811?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma
  7. Just wait for the zombies....coming this summer to an area near you!
  8. Benchmark track for us. Bring it!! And people wonder why everyone is sick.
  9. Fully prepared for Wentz to be out an extended period with Covid-19, then another few weeks with an ingrown toenail.
  10. K that's not too bad. In philly we learned the importance of not having a decent bu if Wentz goes down. Foles was big on ball control and not turning it over and subsequently got Philly a SB. But when Wentz went down last year we saw what an elderly immobile over the hill qb was capable of.....nothing. I believe with a healthy Wentz another trip to the SB was likely. As long as Lamjack has someone half decent behind him as an insurance policy, the sky is the limit with this team imho.
  11. Who's Lamar's backup?
  12. I'm out, NAM caved. Winter cancel. Reap me. Ty.
  13. Are you still reaping these days?
  14. Meh. Some were acting like we needed an ark:
  15. That model is the equivalent of the ICON when forecasting winter storms at 5 day lead times.
  16. This may be your personal best post over the span of the past 4 years. I admire your shift towards optimism. Well done. I pondered this as my family travelled to NYC in mid Nov then came down with the dry cough/shortness of breath a week later around Thanksgiving. However, I keep saying to myself if this was Covid19 already running rampant in late fall, wouldnt hospitals have been completely overrun and inundated with cases and the need for respirators etc? That alone leads me to believe it was a form of influenza.....OR could this have been/was this the start of the coronavirus spread but it has since mutated into something more vicious?
  17. I dont know, but us winter weather folks need to figure out what is causing all the BN temps and AN precip, NAO blocking, PNA ridging so that we can repeat this in DJF rather than MAM next year. If it means cancelling flights and closing factories I'm all in. Anything for a return to solid winter regimes during actual winter months. Obviously I mean this tongue in cheek....I dont want airlines or factories closed and job etc in jeopardy. But seriously, something's gotta give with these winter patterns occurring well into springtime.
  18. But were more tests performed? From what I've read there has been an increase in testing thus the increase in cases. The CDC site still shows the % new cases unchanged.....actually irt public testing it has gotten higher which isnt really a good signal.
  19. Isnt that a covid19 symptom?
  20. The most alarming part to me is that in a flu season we can see 30-60k related deaths. But with covid19 we are already at that upper level range in less than 6 weeks essentially. Sorry if my numbers are slightly.off, going by memory irt influenza seasonal mortality. Eta: and in actuality, most of the deaths from covid19 in the USA have occurred just in the past 4 week period.
  21. NY near 10k today. But I thought basing this on a % vs tests conducted was the better method of determining spread?
  22. Is there somewhere that we can find this data? Would be great if there was a site that listed daily tests vs daily new cases and had the percentage laid out. I'm sure it's out there, just wondering if anyone has the link.
  23. Almost 39,000 new daily cases nationwide today. Highest one-day increase to date. Past several days have shown respective increases. Is this due to more testing? Or is this a reflection/repercussion of Easter family gatherings, some reopenings such as Jacksonville Beach, for example, and city protests?
