Central PA - Summer 2021


Recommended Posts

I just realized this thread was not only quite long, it was the longest (reply wise) in the available history of the Upstate NY/PA sub Thread.  I say this acknowledging that winter threads used to be split up into months but still an interesting piece of info.  Because it was a core group of posters who were here it is no where near the l most read forum just the most replies.

I also notice that both the summer and spring threads were started on or near the vernal equinox and summer solstice rather than the meteorological start dates.  

I’ve come to appreciate both in their own way but since I grew up following the astronomical dates, part of me will always think of those as the “official” start of each season.

If you look back at the first Winter 20/21 and Fall 20 thread you will see they both started using the dates Met's use.  So I still contend that this is a primarily cold driven board which is fine using Met dates for fall and winter but uses Astro dates for Spring and Summer as sort of a "well if I have to, I have to" way of trying to hang on to Winter and Spring longer.

Interesting! I assumed the later start dates were just coincidence but that makes sense on a forum mostly populated with cold and snow-chasers.

It's just an opinion but lines up with the same theory of our world rushing the good seasons like putting out Christmas stuff in Sept and Oct.

Great point! I try to wish and hope for snow as early and as late as possible.

Of interest too is that for once we aren't battling overcast conditions.  Sitting in full sunshine in Tower City at the moment. 

MLCape is high enough, per AFDs, that there is going to be action this afternoon.  If it gets in a line like the Meso's suggest we all should see some or maybe just a few unlucky skip overs.
