    Spring 2019 Banter Thread

    Neighborhood slowly sinking in Seaford. They think it’s caused by water flowing underground. https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/04/19/seaford-sinking-homes-long-island/ SEAFORD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Driveways are buckling, backyards are sinking, and garages are sliding off their foundations. Now homeowners in a Long Island community say they’re stuck paying the price, reportsCBS2’s Jennifer McLogan. It’s a beautiful residential neighborhood in Long Island, but now more than a dozen homeowners on Bowers Drive and Marilyn Drive believe their backyards, and structures on their properties, are slowly sinking – up to a foot in places.

    4/19 - 4/20 Long-Duration Heavy Rain and Wind Event

    Heavy batch of rain now moving up the Jersey Shore into NYC metro. The current PWATS approaching 1.70 are near all-time April highs. Welcome to the tropics in April.
  5. What a snow drought between 96-97 and 01-02. My only memorable snowstorms during that stretch were the March 99 surprise and the one near the end of December 2000.
  6. Yeah, we have had a warmer than normal April here on Long Island even with an average temperature under 50. Takes us time to really warm up with the ocean still so cool. 2002 was the year without a winter that had a head start on the heat. I set a record for winter LB boardwalk bike mileage with such a mild and dry weather. There were several winter days when the bikers and joggers were wearing shorts. Epic reversal to cold and snowy the following 2 winters. But I did see a jogger in only a lightweight track suit when it got near 0 in January 2004. ISP....+2.4....49.6 NYC..+2.9...53.9
  7. Tough to compete against 2002 since it’s the closest we came to hitting 100 in April. Newark warmest April high temperatures. 1 2002 97 0 2 1990 94 0 3 2009 93 0 - 1976 93 0 5 2010 92 0 - 1994 92 0 7 1974 91 0 - 1960 91 0 - 1942 91 0 - 1941 91 0 11 1977 90 0 - 1962 90 0
  8. First 80 of season for NYC and second at Newark. https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=NYC&product=CLI&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=EWR&product=CLI&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off
  9. 3rd highest number of 60 degree or warmer days for NYC from 04-01 to 04-18. 1 1969-04-18 15 0 - 1968-04-18 15 0 3 2010-04-18 14 0 - 1981-04-18 14 0 - 1945-04-18 14 0 6 2019-04-18 13 0 - 2017-04-18 13 0 - 2015-04-18 13 0 - 2012-04-18 13 0 - 2006-04-18 13 0 - 1980-04-18 13 0 - 1963-04-18 13 0
  10. November and March were the few times over the last year that we saw the WAR relax. It pretty much ran the table for the DJF resulting in near record low snowfall over that period. Notice how the influence of the Greenland blocking often gets muted under this regime.
  11. No let up in sight for this very strong WAR pattern. Warmer than normal temperatures with occasional shots of tropical moisture continues. Notice how the 500 mb pattern is perfectly mirroring the SST departures.This is how we end up with the same pattern for months and months.
  12. Can you guess where the warm front is?
  13. That is the current Euro summer forecast. Could also mean another year with more close in hurricane and tropical storm activity from the GOM to East Coast. https://mobile.twitter.com/BenNollWeather/status/1118514451827843072
  14. Areas to our SW look to make a run on 80 today.
