    Super, Duper SWFE

    Yes - not working for me. Their twitter account just posted that they know about the issues folks are having and are working on restoring access.

    Super, Duper SWFE

    Thunder in Wickford RI. The front is sliding east apparently. Temp here is holding steady at 35F for the last hour. Expecting it to drop soon.

    Please help me with a personal tragedy

    Bless you for your care for your friends. I'm heading over to the page to kick in to help. So sorry for this family's unexpected loss.

    Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    -2 this morning according to my Davis in the backyard - given it's right down by the water, that's pretty good.

    Ripping snow here in Wickford now. Temps have dropped from 29 to 25. Wind gusting to 31 mph and pressure has dropped rapidly since midnight. Awesome to watch.

    Winds gusting to 29 Mph out of the NNW here on the west bay in RI (Town Beach in North Kingstown). Light snow - 27/21 Should have taken some of the Christmas decorations down in advance.

    I'm Dreaming of a White Xmas

    And suddenly, unexpectedly we had a quick burst of hail followed by a snow shower here on the water's edge in Wickford. It's even accumulating as the temperature has dropped 5 degrees in about 30 minutes.

    Sunday's Screaming Southeaster

    Power out for us here at Town Beach in North Kingstown. Lots of old growth trees snapped off at the trunks. Most of the boats ok, but one schooner pulled off its mooring and is beached on a neighbors seawall.

    Feb 8th Monster Ocean storm obs and hallucinations

    Sideways windblown light snow here on the west bay in RI. High tide with waves crashing over our seawall. (Next high tide will probably be more exciting.) 31 mph wind and 33/34.

    February 5 quick hitting obs

    Heavy wet snow at a good clip here on the West Bay in Rhode Island. Maybe an inch on the ground now. Not much wind so it's accumulating here. 33/33

    Jan 23/24 2016 obs/nowcast - the fight for the North

    It's blowing so hard here that the snow isn't accumulating this close to the water's edge. Maybe half an inch on the leeward side of the house. Not sure what's doing back further away from the edge of the bay. Winds are not as strong on the West Bay as they were earlier this afternoon either.

    Jan 23/24 2016 obs/nowcast - the fight for the North

    Power grid on Block Island is shut down according to reports. Lines are arcing, and there's worry about the wind knocking the poles down. Ferry service was canceled yesterday, so they're cut off till the storm blows through.

    Visibility down to about ¼ mile, maybe less now. Snow still sideways but heavier. Flakes are getting larger - and wet. Gusts are impressive! 33/34

    Moderate to heavy snow now in Wickford. High wind so the snow is falling horizontally and not settling on the ground, at least this close to the bay. 33/33 with wind about 32 mph sustained.
