  1. Overall warmth has been the pattern all month. Yesterday was only the second time in the last 100 years(1991), that we had a mean temp of 80 in May.
  2. Although we probably wont break the record for warmest May,( Top 5 possibly ) another record we look to smash is for HDD. Personally I think HDD and CDD better encapsulate how warm or cold the individual months of Sept-May are. Right now our HDD for May will likely stay at 20, which is way way below normal. In fact I've yet to find an HDD below 40 since 1900.

    Have always been envious of your regions climate. I understand the disappointment with the holiday weekend outdoor plans for some folks, but I could take your weather today all summer.
  4. Looks like a nasty cell heading towards blackngoldrules
  5. After being on the NW edge of the severe weather last week, now we're on the SE edge. Lol Although on the positive side, we tend to get better cell development with these type setups.
  6. Glad you made it through. Lots of roads around the metro are vulnerable to flash flooding and landslides.
  7. Yeah just found those tweets, guess I was checking the wrong places. Lol
  8. I had just driven through there around 6:30, crazy stuff. Can't find anything on twitter warning folks about the flooding. Very disappointing.
  9. The 511PA traffic cams showing flooding on Saw Mill Run. The water is almost as high as the jersey barriers near Bausman.
  10. The latest AFD from the NWS mentioned a weak short wave moving through this evening. Because of the limited instibility, they felt the heavy rain would be isolated.
  11. Got home just before that cell blew up right over me. I would avoid Saw Mill Run between 88 and Bausman, just in case.
  12. This wet summer like pattern looks to continue all week. It's unusual though for the first half May. I was hoping back in late April the folks talking about a flip to summer would be wrong, but so far this year the longer range guidance has done well with pattern changes.

    Streets are getting a light slush in spots.

    Definitely would’ve had warning level potential. Lower 30’s at 2pm on April 7th shows that we had plenty cold air to work with. Unfortunately the rest fell apart.

    One of the hi res models yesterday had a heavier stripe in your area. They’re verification has been solid all season.
