Spring 2018 banter

It'll be fine, it's still early. There's plenty of warmth coming. 

Yes but we haven't had any cutoff lows to speak of. My ideal Spring weather is 4-5" rainstorms followed by 70's and sunny for a few days, then wash, rinse and repeat.

This Spring has been a dud so far with a lack of cutoffs and nice stretches of warm, dry weather. I feel like we've all moved to the Pacific Northwest.

 

Exactly how warm are you looking for? Averages this time of year are only about 56/34.

I'll admit this mornings 21 and these highs in the upper 30's and low 40's are beginning to wear on me, and I love winter.

Most days have been well below average and have featured snow. It's not that big of a deal because I live in a house, but for many the heat shuts off on April 15th.

I'm glad we got that one significant april snow, usually we get one of those per decade or so.  It would have been historic if we could have gotten another one.

I don't think of "Spring" weather actually starting in our area until after April 15-20.

That's why we generally do better here later in the season when the ocean is warmer. 

Very impressive to get 2 such high end events around the region on the same day. That was the only time for me in LB that I verified severe hail and wind with the same event. Just missed the tornado a little further to my north in Lynbrook. Probably the darkest sky right before the storm that I have ever seen during the afternoon.

 

Huge delays all the way to NYC with that Labor Day 1998 event.

 

Spring "severe" events are usually a nothing around here.  It's the most boring of the 4 seasons.

My most impressive training heavy convection event was the 10 inches of rain in 12 hours during August 2011. Second place was 5 inches of rain in under 2 hrs in June 1995. 

Funny that the one in 2011 came after a historic heat wave in July 2011 that saw EWR reach 108 degrees and the one in June 1995 came before a historic stretch of heat and dry weather that saw widespread wildfires in our area in August 1995.  August could have gone totally rainless if it wasn't for that renegade band of showers that hit us on the night of the 31st.

The CFS is taking its AN mold for May, and then repeating it 8 times.  Shows AN for as far as it goes.   

CANSIPS is about the same.    

I hope these climate models are missing something.

2011 was an exceptional year for extreme precipitation. Newark set records for both snow and rain during a 33 day period by a significant margin.

33 days of snowfall at Newark

#1...1-27-11...61.5

#2...2-14-78...53.6

33 days of total rain at Newark

#1....23.09....9-8-11

Wow at the prolonged warmth over most of Europe, some 12-16 degrees Celsius above average for 10+ days. 

Cold here, it's got to be warm somewhere else....

Pros:  At least @stormtracker's fav type of cold front will make the weather somewhat interesting this weekend. 

Cons:  i would like to see sustained 70s for a little bit

Winter is the best season

If I had to list the seasons from my most to least favorite it would be like this.

1. Fall (most enjoyable because it is the downslope into winter and includes the holiday season)

2. Winter

3. Summer

4. Spring

No baseball for you? This great start by the Mets doesn't excite you? Why would you want to go right back to winter if you're a Mets fan? I don't get it. I love winter too, but it would be terrible to have it all year. There would be no growing season if it was winter all year long. There are great things about every season. Variety is important.

Edmonton is ready for spring after their longest streak with lows below freezing.

Tonight will be Edmonton's 167th consecutive day with the temperature falling below 0°C which will make this the longest stretch on record. Since Oct 29th, when we hit 0.0°, we haven't gone 24hrs without being below zero. The closest we've come is -0.2° on Dec 15th, 2017. twitter.com/YEG_Weather/st…

Can we please fast forward to winter ?

I'd bet money that if Winter lasted all year long you would get sick of it sooner or later.
