The current temp gradient is 42F in the NE corner of my town and 59F in the SW corner (about 8 miles distant). Crazy.

Yeah, it’s a nice spring day west of the backdoor marine layer.

Get out of our chilly corner of the US and its a nice warm day.

We havent had it bad at all though, tomorrow it'll be sunny and seasonable temps. It could easily lock in for days and days of dreary foggy weather this time of year. Im fine with marine air when it doesnt linger endlessly.

Exactly-this kicks out of here tonight and while we are cool next 2 days, it's sunny and around 55-60 depending on location.  I've seen these BDCF's linger 4-5 days around here.

We don't get them nearly as often as eastern SNE does. Sometimes they see these BDCF all the way into June.

BDCFs are easily my least favorite weather event we get around here.

Today’s high so far is only 50, currently 48 though.

Past 5 days here: 44, 70, 62, 71, 50

Why do some get to wear shorts and others don’t?

Everyone wear pants here except for cops who work on the beach and parks.

Saturday looks like our next warm up as the near record strength Central US low pumps the SE Ridge/WAR.  People will really appreciate this on a weekend day. 

never bet against that ridge

Just to make things interesting that line of showers and thunderstorms moving across eastern PA and NW NJ is putting down some CTG lightning.

Anthony, I have never seen an Officer in uniform shorts. I guess I have to get to the beach more often. I do remember mounted police in Dyer Heights when I was a kid. Maybe Unc remembers also. I remember some older neighbors ready with a shovel to collect that vegetable enriching manure. 65+ years ago, not as many cars then. As always .......

Yep. I've been shooting timelapses from high point since 230pm..all those cells slid just around me except this last one that's raining on me right now. I think I got some lightning I have to check when I get some but the timelapse will certainly be cool

The winning bets since 2015 have been a stronger WAR and -EPO than forecast. The early hints at this persistent pattern began during the summer of 2013.

We all complain when its hot.Try wearing the vest and the long pants all summer.

Walk in our shoes before making a smartass post.

The vest and long pants are a big thing thing, but the biggest problem is the extreme heat and humidity brings out the crazies making you that much more busy!
