    Meteorological Winter 2018 Banter

    Total bummer about your collar bone. Ironically my sister broke her collar bone at Stratton (assuming that’s where you were) many years ago. My sister also happened to be skiing at Sunday river last weekend during the snowstorm. Said it was epic, of course.
  3. My station refreshes every 15 seconds. There was a period of time this afternoon around 4PM when I was dropping a tenth of a degree with nearly every refresh.
  4. 19 now after a high of 50 this afternoon. A 31 degree drop in about 6 hours.
  5. 34 now after a high of 50 less than 3 hours ago. I am watching the tenths of degress tick down on station every 30 seconds at this point.
  6. Just reading the discussion out of the NWS in Maine and they would agree. No models really reliable. Update...For starters the only model performing even close to observed 2 m temps is the HRRR...so any adjustments were just about solely HRRR based. Largest pressure falls are occurring over the elbow of the Cape. With low pressure trying to squeeze in that direction now...cold temps will lock in place. I do not expect anyone to rise above freezing today...which at least eliminates one ptype.
  7. Started as all rain here in Seaford. 37. What happened to the rain observation/whine thread? I was all excited to post there.
  8. A bit off topic- but what does IBM intend to do with 'deep thunder'? Will it become 'operational' or is it still experimental? I know it's been around for more than year at least Do they intend to sell the data to governments/private users through a weather consulting business?

    The weather up there truly is as advertised. I hiked up a few years ago, it was in the 60s when we submitted. Like clockwork, a wall of clouds came in like a train and the temp dropped as we started back down. Ended up getting hailed on. I watched a bolt of lightning come out of the clouds at a lower altitude from where I was standing. It was surreal, and scary. The forecast called for just the slightest chance of T-storms, we kind of knew there was a chance we could get into some trouble. But when you drive up 8 hours and only have one chance to make the trek, you kind of feel like you should just go for it. Still glad we did.

    Just finished lighting the tree and see flurries outside. Nice.

    Meteorological Fall 2018 Banter

    Anyone have the date of the last 90 for the region? Or last 75 or even 70 degree dew point? Wondering what the shortest number of days between those numbers and first measurable snowfall is.
  12. I’ve kept my ‘cool’ weather vegetables going (lettuce, broccoli) even through the snow on Thursday, but those temps for Thanksgiving will call for final harvest (appropriately) if verified.
  13. 90s in September, 80s in October, snowstorms in November.
