Better quality picture since it’s straight digital instead of being compressed for cable or satellite transmission.  You live on an area where you could get a good number of stations, I’d still the 3 or 4 I got with rabbit ears ☹️

We got it up at deer camp and we got ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. We got those before but now we get the digital sub-channels that they broadcast different programming on. We lost all the Canadian channels we used to get though since Canada has different broadcast requirements for digital.

ORH at +0.7F for August so far.  Not bad.  I expected it to be warmer. 

CON will be about -1.7F after today. It's gonna be tough to pull off a record warm month at this point.

Ha yup... before today we’ve got -1.8 at MPV and -1.5 at MVL up here.  

Looks like anyone north of RT 2 is below normal or near it.

Looks like there's an AirNow site at Miller State Park showing up on Mesowest now...2254ft. That should be pretty cool to follow in the winter. 67F for a high so far there today.

I could have used that back when I provided forecasts for Temple Mountain Ski Area.  That area always seemed to find a way to over perform in the late 80s/early 90s.

We have an AirNow station here in town but I wish it reported more frequently than just once an hour.  I do like that they use high quality sensors and generally good siting.

Over the air antenna.  I have a pair of antenna's and pick up Boston, Providence, Hartford and Springfield channels.  The best part is that every one is crystal clear and you get the full HD signal and not some compressed version through cable or satellite.  Take a look at tvfool.com and you can see what channels are available at your house.  That will also tell you what kind of antenna you need.

I think it's a DNS issue at COD site. They did maintenance Aug. 6th and since there have been problems on certain networks while others have no issues.

(link: http://Weather.cod.edu) Weather.cod.edu, (link: http://warnings.cod.edu) warnings.cod.edu, and other services are down again this morning. College IT is aware and is working on it. Sorry folks, I thought we were past this.

COD wasn’t working for me for a couple of days. It was working for me this afternoon and now it’s down again. I figured it was a propagating DNS issue too.

Had a doctors visit Friday and headed up north Saturday morning.   Very intense hiking and I have to say temperatures were perfect yesterday for that activity.    Today we took a less intense mountain in and headed home.   Summer’s winding down although we will heat up and dew after this week.

Intense little cell over us after 5 hours hiking yesterday just as we got back to the car.  Perfect timing.

Nice, yeah that’s why we love those temps in the summer.  Outdoor recreation is so nice at temps in the 70s. You can actually go running during the day, too, without having to do it at 4am to not pass out from heat exhaustion. 

Where were you?

We were near sandwich,NH and temperatures at elevation were 60s under 2k and 50s higher.   Just west of castle in the clouds.  Mount Israel which was sneaky steep but at this point in my life descending is the toughest on my body.

Holding off on any flood related headlines. 12.0z UKmet and EC came
in further S with the heaviest rainfall axis while the 12.0z NAM and
12.3z SREF remain on the N side of guidance. Collaborating with WPC,
the EXCESSIVE RAINFALL OUTLOOK for Day 2 was trimmed southward, and
with other weather forecast offices, held off from any FLOOD WATCHES.
Hopefully with later forecast guidance can we get a better handle
on where the more favorable W to E axis of heavy rain will emerge.

Reads pretty meh.  Oh well, at least we have a return to COC after tomorrow's showers.  What an August!
