  1. Saw this on the first episode of a Netflix show called Connected. The veery bird says the 2020 season may not be as bad as NOAA is predicting... https://www.audubon.org/news/are-these-birds-better-computers-predicting-hurricane-seasons “Whatever it is, they know by mid-May,” he says, explaining that the average date of all nesting attempts in years with low ACE was after May 23. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.
  2. I love my local beers, but once in a while the easy, "soda pop" pilsners have their place. I just bought some Modelo and Peroni, which I have never done before to my knowledge. Add lime and they hit the spot in the summer.
  3. Yeah, I've seen that lake turn nasty on a NW wind that kicked in the morning after a frontal passage in September. Went from calm to frothing in about 20 minutes...almost swamped the boat when we got eventually got back to the ramp and tried pulling it out.
  4. Sea fog earlier cleared out and sun breaking through. Breezy and tropical feeling. KPSM reporting 75/72.
  5. Looks like we'll avoid the basement flooding, which is fine by me, but hoping for a few decent thunderstorms with this to help the garden. Might be some good wind reports from IOSN but I think my biggest issue here will be whether the outdoor furniture stays upright.
  6. Staying high and dry here so all systems go for rotisserie lamb with garlic and herbs (should there be a grilling thread? ) .
  7. Are you on Sable Island year-round? Must get some pretty wild stuff out there....would be nice to spend a week out there in winter.
  8. A good read about Argentine thunderstorms. @weatherwiz might consider chasing down there some time... https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/22/magazine/worst-storms-argentina.html?action=click&module=Editors Picks&pgtype=Homepage
  9. Hot day working in the yard. But I have to say, coming into the house with the new AC system was pretty nice. The best part is that it's mostly imperceptible since it runs so quietly but gets the job done. The indoor wall units will eventually just become part of the background but the first couple days they looked a little awkward given that our rooms are fairly small. Glad we made the investment.
  10. Some early thunder here tomorrow on the NAM?
  11. 61/55. Got our new mini-split AC installed today. Funny that it fell on a day when we had no need for it at all. Will give it a good test this weekend.
  12. Some of these hail stones are dime-sized...can't remember seeing anything like that before.
  13. Pea-sized hail now...intense storm!
  14. About to really rock here...been a while since I've seen a cloud this dark
  15. No reports of a fireball/bolide in New England per this site... https://fireball.amsmeteors.org/members/imo_view/browse_reports?event=PEN NASA actually tracks these events although data only goes to 7/6: https://neo-bolide.ndc.nasa.gov/#/
  16. Woke to the sound of heavy rain around 2AM and checked radar to see a decent swirl coming in from the SE. Lawn and garden appreciate it. Morning winds and fast moving clouds were the most interesting aspect relative to our typical July weather.
  17. Pretty nice evening...70/64
  18. Great day for a hike up Mt. Kearsarge .
  19. I wonder if the pattern we're entering persists in one form or another into the August-September time frame. Return of troughiness in the Midwest/GL like we're seeing this week could make for an interesting season. If you look at the track of Hurricane Bob, it's very similar to model output for 98L, and was also influenced by a Great Lakes trough. We'll see.
  20. Minisplit AC install next Wednesday. Looks like timing will work out although aweek earlier might have been better from the sound of it.
  21. Pretty blah out there now with clouds and 70F. Thought today would have ended up the better day this weekend.
  22. Downpours training in from the ocean for a while now...wish I had a decent rain gauge...piling up fast out there
