  1. 34 degrees and cloudy as of 8:15am. I usually prefer these smaller trace events, especially early in the season. Still beautiful but no shoveling and (usually) no increased driving risk.
  2. I thought you might be making a car pun; winter might not be a “Lemon” but a “Ferrari” (taking some liberties with the spelling and pronunciation, of course, but it works!)
  3. Perhaps he’s busy negotiating some unholy bargain with the dark gods of weather
  4. Kind of amazed at how much cooler it still is in your area! I saw that just an hour ago you were still at 45. The temp did go up pretty quickly but you’re usually at least a degree or two warmer than here. Up to 63 here now; an Ambient station about 2 miles north (just outside John Rudy park) is pushing 64.
  5. Near Rocky Ridge park in east York, 60 degrees and sunny with a light breeze as of 10:45 am.
  6. You and Wim Hof … (I’m more like the Wegmans lady, wanting to break out the parka when the temperature dips below 40)
  7. Sounds great but I think the frosty beverage disqualifies it as a “dry” weekend
  8. I’ll pitch in for the heat if we can negotiate down on the dewpoint!
  9. As of 12:40 pm, 71 and sunny here; dew point 59.6. (I wish the first two weeks of October had been like this…)
  10. This morning was definitely light jacket weather for me! Guess I better start building up my cold tolerance Edited to add that I quite enjoy the slower, more gradual cool down as we transition into winter. I’m really looking forward to the “no longer warm but not yet cold” weather coming up over the next few weeks.
  11. As of 12:45 pm it’s 58 degrees here and a pleasant mix of sun and clouds. Fairly steady wind; I’d guess somewhere around 10 mph with occasional gusts around 15 mph (local Ambient stations are reporting similar numbers). When the wind settles down it feels much milder, almost too warm for even a light jacket. My canine friend is thoroughly enjoying this cooler weather. Makes it just the tiniest bit easier to say goodbye to summer.
  12. I think Bubbler’s right — might not be any upper 70s or 80s with high dew points, but I’d bet we still have a few more warm days coming up. For what it’s worth, I miss summer and the longer daylight hours too. I don’t know how old you are but one thing that helps a little is that the older (and busier, it seems) I get, the faster time seems to fly by. The holidays come and go quickly and then we just have to get through a few months, likely with some mild spring-like days scattered here and there throughout, and it will be mid-spring again before you know it.
  13. Rain just started here a few minutes ago, around 1:15 pm. Sky had been looking rather ominous for about 45 minutes prior to that and I was starting to wonder if we might get a surprise thunderstorm.
  14. As of 11:45am it’s 70 and sunny here, light breeze; closest Ambient station says dew point is 60.6 but it feels very comfortable outside right now. Some of you would probably consider it too warm but to my mind this is a perfect fall day. Hope you all get a chance to enjoy it.
  15. Just after 2 pm, it’s overcast and 67 here. My point-and-click weather apps are all still saying it will reach mid 70s here but it doesn’t feel like it’s warming up, so I’m not so sure. Occasional light breeze, very pleasant out; perfect day, really, minus the gray sky.
  16. I really enjoy them on occasion. Two-three times a week, no problem. Four or more consecutive days and it starts to get old.
  17. Same here - just a couple degrees warmer, but steady light rain/drizzle for about 45 minutes. I consider this an improvement. If it’s going to be nonstop gray and dreary, might as well get some rain out of it.
  18. Honestly I’m more looking forward to seeing the sun again than the cooler temps. For awhile the humidity was starting to feel like a personal affront (lol) but I quite enjoy fall weather that bounces around between warm (mid 70s) and crisp (low 60s). The constant gray skies are a real drag, though.
  19. According to the MA forum, yes. (lol)
  20. I’m out later today than yesterday so there’s always the risk that it will get very uncomfortable while I’m out, but yesterday, instead of being warm and soupy it was like walking through a cool mist. Not bad at all. It’s like that now too; hopefully it lasts awhile longer.
  21. 76 here, starting to see some breaks in the clouds now but it’s been near complete cloud cover for most of the day thus far. There’s a large, dark cloud hovering overhead, slowly making its way east, and looks like more storm clouds to my southwest, but no more rain since early this morning. Had a little over a tenth of an inch total. I’m a little surprised by how swampy it is today. I thought the dew points might be at least a little lower this time of year.
  22. As of 6:15 AM it’s a balmy, downright tropical 67 degrees with a 66 dewpoint. I love being able to get up and roll right out the door in shorts and a t-shirt, so I’m going to make the most of it. The cooler weather will be back soon enough to kick the last of the warmth out on its arse.
  23. As of 12:00 noon it’s 76 here with a dp of 71. Surprised by how summer-like it feels today, but there’s a steady breeze with some stronger wind gusts and intermittent rain drops (not even enough to call it a drizzle) keeping it pretty comfortable.
  24. As of 2:40, an Ambient station about a mile south of me says it’s 87.1 with a dewpoint of 72.6. Mostly cloudy/overcast all day so far with just brief moments here and there where the clouds and haze shift just enough that a bit of filtered sunlight gets through. I’d love a couple weeks in the upper 70s to low 80s with plenty of sunshine, a light but steady breeze, and low humidity. This time of year, that shouldn’t be too difficult a request. Do the Weather Gods demand a blood sacrifice for this? Will mosquitoes do?
