Central PA - Fall 2017

620 posts in this topic

During my college forecasting days, we were taught to undercut MOS by a few degrees for lows during really dry spells.  The dry ground can allow temps to drop quicker.

Pretty solid frost here this morning to bring in the beginning of October, temps were around 35ºF. Sensible weather around here looks to continue being generally dormant the next 6-10 days with moderation back to above normal temps. I'm sure the expanse of minor short term drought conditions (D0) will be expanding in the area with this week's drought monitor report... it's certainly been a dry span of weather the last month.

Looks short lived 

I really hope we get some decent storms this year. Added another truck/plow/salt spreader to the fleet. Upgraded an older spreader to a new one. Had two fertilizer machines fitted with custom plow setups to make a total of 4 ride on, salt spreading, fertilizing, weed killing, snow plowing machines. Gained a few new sites this year as well.

... turns out it was a complete non-event here. Got 1/4" rain and 2-3 gusts to mayyybe 30 around 10 p.m. 

yeah little gusty here as well, but a real dud in the rain guage.  Really needed the heavy rain to clean off the street from the water main break this weekend.  Mud...yuk.

Looking forward to tomorrow and beyond for real fall weather (which i know includes swings in temps) but not the boring above average stuff weve been seeing.

Euro has a massive sub 980 storm hitting NJ Sunday afternoon. Hurricane force winds along the coast and boatloads of rain all the way back to Altoona it appears. Similar storm than Sandy from my untrained eye, just not as built up along the coast.

Sunday looks like a day where temps may start off fairly mild (around 60?) with temps falling through the 50s and possibly the 40s as the day goes on.

We are in NYC this weekend for a few shows Saturday and had planned to be tourists and go to Ellis Island Sunday. It'll be a quick stop at the Whitney and then a crappy drive home it turns out.
