I think I had maybe two or three really pleasant days this spring where mowing my tiny-ass yard didn't end up in a sopping wet sweat-fest. (I actually recall thinking to myself at the time that I should enjoy that while it lasted lol!) At least we haven't had to run the A/C as much this month so far, but the humidity is making all my doors and windows stick.

In other news, it's been 20 days since we've had significant rainfall, with 1.44" on September 23rd and a hardly worth mentioning .07" on October 4th. Hoping for something this weekend. At this rate, I'll be watering my plants until Thanksgiving.

Will the clouds break tomorrow? 8-ball says "ask again later"...

Did Captain Kirk see the sun when he was in low Earth orbit?

 

There was a G2 CME earlier in the week so it dimmed the sun. :lol:

All he kept saying was that suddenly "it went from blue sky to black sky".

Had a high of 68 yesterday and 72 today (despite the all-day overcast), with low of 59 yesterday but a wee bit warmer 62 this morning.  Currently 68 with dp 64 so expecting maybe some stratus again (and possibly fog) since the winds have pretty much gone calm.

With the sun finally returning both today thru Saturday will be well above normal but nowhere near the record highs for today which is 85 back in 1985 & 1920 and 89 tomorrow from way back in 1897. With the strong cold frontal passage on Saturday night it looks like our high temperatures both Sunday and Monday will for the most part stay in the 50's across most of the higher terrain across Western Chester County while low 60's in the lower spots across parts of Eastern Chester County. image.png.1af60a044929676246a41350808c6158.png

It's a perspective of space you never see if you spend your entire life being beamed up.

Found this neat website from a tweet by NWS Mt. Holly. Currently set to plot cloud cover at KPHL:

Super (and soupy!) dense fog here in Reading. Should burn off in the next couple of hours. With highs in the upper 70's to low 80's over the next few days we might have to run the A/C today and tomorrow, meh. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Hearing some talk about this SST warming event on Rebecca's Northeast weather.... apparently its rare for them to occur this early. Last time it happened was in 2010 which led to many disruptions in the polar vortex and formation of the "alaska ridge" for that snow season....

2010 -2011 was a great winter in these parts. Pretty much a snow blitz from mid december through the end of january with 2 MECS, one of those a borderline HECS(boxing day) followed by an early spring. Pretty much my ideal winter imo.

Well he has piloted shuttles off planet surfaces... so... :lol:

I ended up with a high of 76 yesterday and 81 today, both mornings with lows of 60.  You could definitely feel the humidity today however.

Currently 71 with dp 66. 

Mt Holly tweeted about RER high temp ties for 3 CWA sites today -
