Central PA 2020 Fall - The Hope begins

Recommended Posts

Looks like we got down to 41 last night.

I will say I’m glad I put on a long-sleeved shirt before we heard to the vet at 8 pm. We were there until 12:30 and it was downright chilly.

37.9 here this morning.  I didn't get up to see if there was any frost.  Wonder what is MDT's earliest 32 degrees or below date?

September 24th 1963 it got to 32 or below at MDT which I think is the earliest if you cut the dates from Jan 1-July 31 and Aug 1 to Dec 31.

It is absolutely beautiful. But as @Superstorm says it’s a warm sun still I’d you’re in it for a while. 

I was just going to write about this.  In the shade one almost needs long sleeves but in the sun the sweat comes quickly.

We went on an hour walk and I got sweaty for sure. It’s deceiving - sun angle is still there, will be for another few weeks really.

Well winter is if we are getting dumped on!

It’s nice but give me late October or November days. For us with super pale skin, where sun exposure is a serious issue, it’s much more relaxing. :)

Down to 42 before 11pm. I'm thinking we go colder than last night's 37. CTP thinks so, too, as we now have a frost advisory.

I can’t wait until the Frost Advisory is replaced with a Winter Weather Advisory later this Fall!

Growing season ending early in Cashtown.  It is now up to 49 here.  Only thing missing is the weather chart showing an app runner pouring the warm air in.  Its 11 degrees warmer now than yesterday at this time.

Weird weather.  61 now headed for 70's if it does not slow down.  Saw you went up 10 degrees in the last hour.  Our temps here have been slowing raising since 3am.

Or a 980 low 50 miles off of the coast of OCMD with an Arctic High parked over Quebec!

Not much of a drop after my post. This morning's low was the same (37) as yesterday's.

33.3 degrees for my low this morning.  Amazing, a Frost Advisory and it's still calendar Summer!  I'm pretty sure I've never seen a Frost Advisory this early before.  For the Carlisle area the average date of the first 32 degree low is October 15th while the last date is typically April 15th with 180 days for the growing season.  Snow in May...Frost in September...what other crazy things await us in the final three months of 2020??

It was 35ish here this morning with patchy frost. Just outside of town several of the local meso obs were around 32ºF and it was a pretty solid frost. Looking like just about the same deal tonight. Eastern PA might have the coldest low temps tonight.  

Eyeing up late next weekend/Monday for the next precip chances in the area. Models have generally had something there and 12z GFS went for a phase and cutoff with an excessive rain event in the central counties. I'd say the West Branch might go positive again if the GFS 2-5" stripe in 24hrs between the western Laurel's and the Sus River came to fruition. Still way out there...but as mentioned, models have shown more widespread QPF in that timeframe. Other hopefully good news later this week is models have been showing a Pac NW system coming in mid-late week.. so hopefully some of that gets down at least into Oregon and knocks down some of those wildfires.

Any suggestions for a fall foliage drive later on when we might get a little color? From Harrisburg, we’d be okay driving 4-5 hours for a nice day trip. 

Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park. Though, if you can only go on a weekend it will be very crowded.

Delaware Water Gap up near Stroudsburg is great too.
