That graupel made it all the way into the southeast corner of the state here in Quakertown temperature was 51F. Also some white badly mangled flakes initially for around 30 seconds.

We just had that same exact thing here in Tamaqua about 10 minutes ago...

May 15th and it's snowing at high noon here at 1200 ft elevation...absolutely insane. I've seen some higher elevation flakes in May before but definitely the latest I have ever seen it snow here.

Just picked up a new kayak yesterday and am itching to go but this weather sucks.

Almost went anyway but backed out at the last minute.

And just as I type... the iciest squall of the day rolls through. Definitely can't remember ever seeing frozen precip here in the middle of May!

So hard to not be a nerd when friends come over and tell me it's been hailing outside...  :weenie:

 

Oh yeah, my Facebook lit up with the "hail" posts when we got our sleet/groupel earlier today...lol

It snowed on May 18, 2002 in parts of Northeast PA. There was around an inch above 1600' in Wayne County. I wish I had hiked Mt. Ararat at 2600'+ to see how much was up there.

This definitely isn't the first time there's been accumulating mid-May snowfall in elevated parts of PA. The 5/10/77 storm affected eastern parts of the state significantly as well; parts of the Catskills got 2 feet and the Poconos had big amounts as well.

Looks like another year without a summer at this point.  Long range forecast shows transient warmth that will probably verify as overcast and 62.

we had heavy graupel on Sunday afternoon about 4:00 as well. I was doing some car maintenance and I had the car half in the garage to  put air in the tires, it started coming down with snow then it changed to graupel and then to rain.

 

We did a cook out at a local rescue mission after that, and the men running the grill got hammered a couple of times.

huh?

Starts getting hot today - summer heat looks to be a record-setter humidity season in the midatlantic with August being an absolutely torcher at +3 degrees. I despite hot/humid weather now.

I don't think this summer will be as hot as many people think. Temps will probably be AOA normal, but strong blocking has been present for months and warm shots have been rather transient.

That hail was impressive in York County!

Can't believe CTP didn't issue a warning with that storm. The picture you have here was clearly sub-srvere hail, but York 911 had several calls for trees down in Red Lion, Hellam and Lower Windsor Township. There also was a partial collapse of a building under renovation. I believe at one point there was a hail core suspended at 25 kft on the Sterling radar for three consecutive frames.

Don't be surprised if spots in the southern and eastern areas have a legit heat wave this weekend.

 

AVP had a 38-degree diurnal range today (87/49). Not bad.

I thought you meant cold or rainy.

I'll be back in PA for the long weekend at about 2am this morning. So looking forward to hazy hot and humid conditions for 3 days. Love it.
