  1. Had 0.62" since yesterday...hi temp this morning of 58°.
  2. 29° low this am...Running a -1.8° departure for the month.
  3. 33° here this am...Running a -1.5° departure thru yesterday.
  4. An amazingly cold month with a -11.5° departure, but only 1.3" of snow at my station.
  5. 27° here currently...lots of high clouds keeping temp up.
  6. I think temps wound up pretty much as forecast. I use the nam 12km, I find it does pretty well. You have to know the bias's for your area and adjust accordingly...for instance, all the models do bad for where I am on calmer nights, not picking up on the radiational cooling that takes place. Forget the GFS by the way, bad warm bias since the upgrade.
  7. 23 here currently, sets lowest on record for so early in season, during my station's 40 year record.
  8. Probably see a 50 degree midnight high and a 25 degree midnight low today.
  9. Yeah hate that .
  10. today is the 5 year anniversary of the post-sandy snowstorm. Measured 7" here...quite the stretch of weather.
  11. I miss old time hockey...I had been a hockey fanatic since 10 years old..Starting last season, I don't really watch it anymore... I still follow it but get bored trying to watch it.
  12. Remember that devil's playoff game back in 1988 (I think), that had the replacement referees? I was at that game, I'll never forget it.
  13. Yup a +6.6 degree departure.
  14. Didn't beat out 2007 here for warmest...Finished with a mean temp around 62.2 degrees, below the 63.0 degree mean in 2007.
