    Meteorological Fall 2018 Banter

    I have 3 crapes that die to the ground every year (except 2o11-2012 winter) and then sprout up like a perennial. Except no flowering.
  2. I had a brief period of sun today around noon which helped peak temperatures around 67 (and felt nice for a short while) but clouded over soon thereafter and sitting at 64/58 now

    The Death of Weather Underground

    It's sad. This was my go to site since the late 1990's with it's detailed UI and history. I'd gladly pay a subscription to bring it back to it's heyday look (wunderground classic).
  5. I'm wearing a hoodie today.
  6. I think it has to do with the dewpoint. The higher the dewpoint, the harder it is to heat the air. Prob the reason why you don't see 100 degrees that often in MIA or MCO

    ugh. we've had (2) winters under 10" here since 2000: 2001-2002 and 2011-2012; should be interesting when I move down there

    2018 Banter Thread

    Hello SE Board. Fellow Long Islander (which I lived here all of my life) , will be making a permanent move down to Salisbury NC mid October. For a person that loves snow, but also loves warm weather, I am both looking forward to the warmer climate, but not looking forward to winters where I consider anything less than 25" per year a dud. We've had some good snow storms over the past 10 years. Also, I'm very accustomed to being 1.5 miles north of the ocean with my summers being really nice- albeit Humid this summer due to the persistent WAR and above average SSTs
  9. 1.15" since 7:20pm start time. coming down nice- not much lightning though..

  11. SST shot up close to 80- on an off-shore wind ironically- which normally results in cooler up welling.
  12. My low was 77. Highest low of season
  13. 83/76/91 - juicy out there p. sunny - thunder in the distance to my north - looking to miss me 0.31" for the day 6.27" for the month
  14. Pouring here too. 1.5" since 5am
  15. 26 days for me, sat outside for a bit now and yes, that 71 degree current dewpoint feels dry.
