E PA/NJ/DE Spring 2024 OBS/Discussion


Recommended Posts

Mild again today but we look cloudy with increasing shower chances for the rest of the work week before we clear out for the weekend. Some models paint another 1" to 2" of rain by late Friday.
Chester County records for today: High 88.9 at Nottingham (2013) / Low 15 Devault (1958) / Rain 2.05: Coatesville (1993) / Snow 9.7" (1894). Of note this snow was the start of a 2 day snowstorm that was the largest snowstorm in April history with 29" of snow falling at Coatesville..
The NWS PHL historical weather page details this April storm as follows.1894...(April 10-12) Md-DC-DE-PA-NJ-NY. Whirling snowstorm and gale winds,remarkable so late in Spring. Most severe for many years in MD, DE and DC with snow 20 to 24" deep; 12 to 31" in PA; 5 to 21" in NJ; and 6 to 30" in NY. Roads blocked."

Far better day than forecast with some sun and shower chances reduced to 30%. Put this one in the makeup column which we are owed many this season.

 

Pretty much a cloudy day w/precip only showing up at the State college radar...swiss cheese at that.

71F/Cloudy

Clouds and showers to close out the work week with the heaviest rain likely overnight tonight. Sun returns and cooler on Saturday before a nice warm up with temps into the mid 70's for the county next week. Longer term a return to below normal temps looks increasingly likely as we move into next weekend and toward the end of the month.
County records for today: High 89 West Chester (2013) / Low 20 Phoenixville (1921) / Rain 2.06" West Grove (1929) / Snow 18.5" Coatesville (1894)

Lucking out with the weather recently. Last week a followed the blizzard to some fresh powder skiing in Pico, VT- thankfully no snow on the NY thruway which stayed rain most of the way to the mountains. Two nice days over the weekend and just high altitude clouds for the Eclipse which made for great viewing.

Getting clipped by a thundershower here. Didn't expect to start this rain event off like this! Smells good too. Might have had one hailstone too, when the rain started, it was huge drops, but the very 1st one sounded like a stone hit the gutter, lol.

0.24" of rain so far since yesterday here in East Nantmeal. Might see another 0.25" or more if any thunderstorms pop up. Shower chances finally go away by Saturday PM and after a chilly Saturday we should see a nice warming trend get underway by Sunday and carry us into next week.

Under one of those segments and getting a gully washer here with >1"/hr rates and some good wind gusts.  Had on and off rain overnight and currently have 0.51" in the bucket (with 0.06" yesterday have a 2-day total of 0.57:).

High/low the past couple days were 74/53 & 74/52 and it's been humid those couple days.

Currently at my low for the day of 59 with heavy rain and dp 58.

Light mist/rain, 44F. Mowed the lawn Wed, probably hit it again tomorrow, really growing.

Today looks like the last decent day for awhile. Staring tomorrow the Sun returns and it gets hot.

Just over an inch for this most-recent event. Misty, 49F.
