    The coming week will continue the cold pattern which set in last Wed...To bad we couldn't cash in with any snow.

    Looks cold but dry for upcoming week...Two storm threats for rain in 7 - 10 day range... Doesn't look like any snow but something to track... Getting some of our stations closer to the 70" yearly precip total.

    Yeah Nov was below normal also, with only that Thanksgiving snowstorm for the period. Also this day 1998 was 76 degrees here, my highest Dec temp.

    Some mention Dec 1989...That month was amazingly cold, dry and relatively snowless...My station had a 24.8° mean temp with only 1.2" of snow and 0.89" of precip.

    I see on tropical tidbits 18z is out to 24hrs currently...probably some type of glitch. Most likely similar elsewhere.

    I had 73.55" in 2011...In one 30 day period from approx 8/5- 9/5 , I measured over 25". Don't think I'll ever see so much rain in that period of time again.

    Joe as far as I know it's bogus...I can remember the explanation of a faulty weld causing leakage into the gage...That total was 17" higher than my station even. Those totals were said to be thrown out but somehow it seems to have been forgot about. If you do a Google search you can find some further info.
