    Fall Banter, Observation and General Discussion 2018

    Down to 30 last night. Still have frost in the shady spots of the yard.

    Yeah, I’m going to leave it for now. Nighttime temperatures were close to everyone else, and this is about as good a spot as I’m going to get. Can’t wait to get this station online.

    Just hit freezing. Not used to getting this cold until late November or December. Feels good.

    I’m glad Ian is still thinking of us.

    This place would explode in panic and despair

    Thanks! So I guess I'll leave it alone then and not calibrate it to be in line with the other stations? I have a large yard, so it's basically sited in the middle of the field, away from the driveway, garage, and most trees. I could have tried to place it in the shade, but it would have severely compromised accurate rain collection, wind, and the dew point data since it would have been next to a marshy area. Did my best to follow the NWS guidance on siting. Anemometer couldn't get put on the roof so it's with the wx station in the field.

    Yeah, that's actually not an awful look. Looks like a semi-active STJ to me given the precip in the south. And warmth in Alaska is something I want to see provided the PNA/EPO regions look good. Last thing I want is a black hole up there flooding the US with PAC warmth. We can get by with a crappy Atlantic. It's game over if the PAC is trash. IMO.

    Yeah. The low was almost dead on with all the other stations, but the daytime temp has been significantly higher. I'm at 47.3 and 12/13 of the others are below 45 currently. I don't think my location is a weenie cold spot but I want to be accurate. Not sure if I should calibrate or give it more time to see what happens later in the day. I want to get on WU and have a high quality station.

    There's a two degree difference between my VP2 (in the sun with a radiation shield) and my simple thermometer in the shade. Is that normal?

    This. I do not care. The only things I need to know here are 1. Do you like snow 2. Will your location steal my snow 3. Can you tell me how it will snow imby 4. Are you ok with me posting about tropical

    Sited my VP2 (read: my new baby) earlier this afternoon. Still trying to figure out the software issue with Mac, but can't wait to get obs up and running online. I think it's in a good spot, I have a decent sized yard, but there's a big tree that has me a bit worried about rain shadowing. Anemometer is also at about 7' so not ideal, but I couldn't mount it on the roof.
