Title: What's your weather currently?
Post by: Desert Man on February 03, 2016, 12:54:07 PM
I been on a number of forums for years have a weather thread, where members post today's weather in their town. Weather and meteorology is one of my expertise subjects, and I came up with this topic: How's your weather? I'm in a cool (yet gets warmer), drier phase for the upcoming weekend when highs are in the 70sF/20sC range.

51 degrees, cloudy and windy. Currently waiting for rain. I'm not sure when winter will come. Only one storm here, so far.  :colorful:

It's been cloudy all week here in Winnipeg, with flurries throughout the day. Temperatures have been -10 C (14F) all week during the day, -15 to -20 at night (5 to -4 F). Pretty seasonal, but that's why people call Winnipeg, Winterpeg.

Same here. What is winter? We have had too many days with mid 40s already at 2 a.m.*, when the normal is just below freezing.

Cloudy and unseasonably spring-like temps at 52 F/11 C.  Though tomorrow we're expected to have snow (I'm hoping it's a dusting - I've a potluck to go to tomorrow night!), which rings true the old New England maxim of "if you don't like the weather, wait a couple of minutes".

Just wrapping up a snowstorm in the Greater Boston area - with averages of between five and eight inches depending upon the community.  NWS has also issues a special weather statement warning of a possible black ice hazard during the overnight hours due to the anticipated below freezing temps.

As a interesting sidebar, Boston was one of the first communities to close school for Friday once the winter storm warning was issued.  However, they never declared a snow emergency as well - which seems very odd to me.
Title: Re: What's your weather currently?
Post by: dcbjms on February 05, 2016, 09:57:05 PM
Same here.  It was weird, since I shovelled almost constantly today - earlier the snow was wicked heavy, but towards the end it was that fluffy slow.  We did get quite a bit of snow, though when I shovelled for the last time (after hearing about the black ice warning) I shovelled out a dusting, which was a relief after shovelling an average of 2-3" per time.

Sunny and near 80 around DFW.

I was going to ask C or F, but at -40 they're the same.

Low's around 40F and highs in the mid 50's here in FL. There was a frost warning last night and a freeze warning a few counties north. We busted out our winter coats and covered the cold-sensitive plants.

No, wait, that is the result of the basketball match I've just attended. Now for actual weather: It has been raining all day long. And Winter is finally coming starting Sunday afternoon, maybe even with snow (in my area it snows once a year).

We've cracked -10 in Troy. Wind chill is -33 and the temperature is supposed to fall even further. 45 miles north of me in Queensbury, it's -12 and forecast to hit -20 actual temperature.

Our deck at 10:00 this morning. That sort of path in the foreground was created by a squirrel who was out there when I came downstairs at 7:30. The path is no longer visible as I type this at about 10:35. Not a lot of snow, but it's supposed to turn to sleet and freezing rain this afternoon. No plows yet either, naturally. The snow is deeper around the front of the house and in the driveway due to the direction in which the wind blows.

Sunny for the second day in a row - which is the first time in ages (early December?).

Yesterday had much stronger wind, which was bitingly cold, but today is still cold (reached a high of 40 today - which is a cold high for this part of the world), but doesn't feel bad with just a thick jumper. Still that annoying deception of warmth, due to not being dreary and wet looking, but rather bright and sunny (really bad in the mornings as sunny mornings are cold mornings in winter, but warm the rest of the year), but at least you don't need a windproof coat and some other layers.

Same here on the other side of the US, starting this afternoon, which would be good for melting snow.  I'm currently trying to dig the cul-de-sac out of the snowpile the plows left so that the rain would find an easier way to get there.

I haven't heard the term El Nino since January when the eastern US suddenly got cold and stormy with a lot of snow (although some areas of New England are below average), which was the exact opposite of what they kept claiming would happen.

I can't imagine there will be much snow left on the ground by Monday.  Just dirty snowbanks next to parking lots.

El Nino is in full effect for Wisconsin this winter.  El Nino = wussy winters for us and this year has been exactly that.

All quiet on the western front -- that is, in Farmington Hills MI (northwest Detroit suburbs).  An inch or three of snow earlier today, depending on exactly where you were, followed by some rain.  The Wednesday evening rush hour commute wasn't bad at all.  30 degrees and roads are clear around here right now.  But more inches are coming and lots of schools have already announced they will be closed Thursday.

Can't believe I was in shorts and dayhiking through the woods just four days ago.

Connecticut was all sorts of crazy last night. Some towns jumped up 20 degrees in an hour or less. There was an unconfirmed wind gust of hurricane strength in Glastonbury, to the southeast of Hartford. A few other towns reported gusts up to near 60. At least 30,000 people lost their power, including at my mother's place in southern Hartford County.  :-o

I was in Portland, ME and woke up at 4 AM. A thunderstorm with a strong south wind was in progress. The lone rumble I think I heard (I was still half asleep for a bit) was around 3:55 AM.

It's a mix of sun and clouds here in Worcester, MA, along with a stiff wind. I'm stopped at the city's Peter Pan/Greyhound/MBTA bus/train station.

In Seattle, we have meteorological spring.  It's from mid-February through mid-July.  Compared to winter, it's somewhat warmer; the chance of snow inside the city is pretty much nil.  And it's generally damper than winter, with heavy clouds and drizzle most common.

Summer is from about July 15 to October 1, and it's actually pretty nice.  Mostly dry, with enough rain to keep the plants from all dying.  Long, light evenings.  Not super hot.  In all, very nice.  I ask myself sometimes if it's worth the other 9 1/2 months a year though.

Oh, right.  Today.  Light haze and about 55.  Rain expected this afternoon.

Ended up nearly a foot below average for snow but average for precipitation thanks to rain and a big sleet storm for Chicago's winter. Two quick snows this week before a major warmup next week. A prolonged period of 15-25 degree above average temps as a ridge builds into the eastern 2/3 of the country. Could get wet too

After record breaking heat (13 C, 55 F) early in the week (seriously. Winnipeg is that cold), we're back to the seasonal average for temperature (low of 14 F to a high of 32 F in mid March). We got 5 cm of snow last night, covering the brown grass with white snow. All the new snow will melt probably within the next couple weeks as temperatures will probably go up again. Leaves don't come onto trees until early May here.

Makes me want to put away the Easter eggs and baskets and break out the tree, stockings, and some Nat King Cole.

UPDATE: Now only saying a coating to an inch.  But then again, last time they did that we got 11"

Snowing. Quite a bit. Between yesterday and today, we've had enough bad accidents in eastern New York for an entire winter. The long-overdue I-88 winter pileup occurred yesterday afternoon in Schenevus, there's a 10-car pileup on the Northway in Moreau and a bunch of smaller accidents elsewhere, including a fatal accident on NY 155 in Guilderland and a tour bus crash on NY 28N in Minerva.

Saturday was some of the most bizarre weather I have ever seen.  Towering tall clouds all around, and sunshine here and there, but then every so often, Mother Nature would take 5 minutes to just barf snow down from the heavens.  It was like barfing (meteorologists might call it "downdrafts").  Mother Nature, go home, you drunk.  Oh yeah- and it was 41 degrees AS the snow was falling (Aurora, IL area)

April is really a wild card.  Here in Chicagoland, we had 3 days in a row topping out in the 80s (80-83F or 27-28C).  Also in April, we've had three separate days of measurable snowfall.  All within April 1- April 18.

That's a bit of a stretch. History's largest fires stem from years when they were allowed to freely burn, and scorched millions of acres. I doubt this would ever reach that magnitude, especially with the cooler temperatures and low winds forecast for the foreseeable future.

I thought the problem now was due to the U.S.' former full suppression policy on wildfires that we've messed with wildfires actually being an integral part of forestry.  Hence, now we have the controlled burns and whatnot to rectify the unnatural overabundance of fuel caused by the former misguided policy.

Reached 27 (81 in German units that the Germans never really used) here, which would be considered 'nice' in summer. We had freezing weather just 10 days ago, with snow and sleet!

Even now at 7pm after it has cooled down to a typical-warm-May-day temperature of 20, we're still currently hotter than Los Angeles (where it is 11am and nearly as hot as it is going to get today).

Went for a nice walk yesterday with some friends and ate dinner at the Columbia Tower Club, some 900 feet above street level.

Supposedly it's going to thunderstorm today. May even see some severe ones, and possibly, a tornado or two in the Mid-Atlantic. Well, that's what they are saying anyways, so let's see how spot-on they are with those predictions... I love me a good thunderstorm!

And we got... nothing (besides rain). Hillsborough kills most severe weather that enters it's boundaries. That squall line looked a lot more menacing before it hit us...

My house feels like it's about a million degrees. Every house I've ever lived in up until last week has had A/C. My new abode...does not. I am miserable.

My phone was reading 94 F, and my car was reading 96 F. Granted, it was the South Hill weather station, south of Puyallup, which is almost always hotter than Seattle.

I hate when that happens. We very seldom get thunderstorms in the Seattle area, so I always get excited when I hear one might be approaching. Of course, when they then don't arrive, I am left very disappointed.

I actually like the house temperature to be about 25 (77 F) or so during the summer. Anything lower is too cold. I also don't like AC too much either.

Of course, when they then don't arrive, I am left very disappointed.

Thunderstorms mean tornadoes and severe weather sometimes anyway. Though, I do feel the same as you. We got a short storm yesterday. Some lighting and thunder, and it quickly moved on.

Certainly if you live in the south, or some parts of the Prairies, they can mean bad things. And while we do get tornadoes from time to time around here, they are never more than EF1...they might tear up a barn (http://cliffmass.blogspot.com/2009/09/enumclaw-tornado.html) or knock over some train cars (http://www.kplu.org/post/tornado-knocks-over-rail-cars-uproots-trees-frederickson), but that's it. For the most part, thunderstorms here mean lightning and hail, maybe some short-lived standing water. That's pretty much it (so, in short, I can like thunderstorms without feeling guilty).

Many years ago, a developer wanted to build a drug store at a very busy corner on Rt. 322 in Mullica Hill, NJ,. which is a heavily traveled shore route from PA to NJ 55  They did a traffic study one summer weekend, and presented the results of that study to the township committee.  One very acute person had time to look back, and noted the study was done on a unusually cool summer weekend.  While  similar to the temps you said were nice in Ontario, those temps in NJ would result in people staying home from the shore for the weekend.  The developer, from Florida, tried to claim that it sounded like a good weekend for the beach, which resulted in a roomful of groans (and more).  That very big mis-step may have resulted in the township turning down his project's location!

Thank goodness it did...eventually that location became part of the 322 Bypass thru town.

Saturday I was at an outdoor Coldplay concert in downtown Chicago.
A severe thunderstorm warning was issued, and it was justified by the ensuing heavy downpours and super gusty winds.  That postponed the 7pm concert until 2 hours later.  Then at 10:30, one of the worst deluges I've seen started happening.  Chris Martin was like "it's raining; let me check with the officials...Okay they said to evacuate the stadium; let's play one more song!"  And he didn't care and just started playing it anyways, like a champ.  He was mystified by how all the Chicago people were so cheerful and responsive even though the weather was nuts.  The audience was like "yeah, whatever, another severe thunderstorm" lol.  Driving home soaked still sucked.  The stairs down to the parking garage were a waterfall.

High of 87 with partly cloudy skies. Enjoyed the 50s for lows in NW Florida and NW Alabama the last week. The front did clear Tampa while I was gone, setting in a long term dry pattern.

Was looking at the U.S. Drought Map (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/) and parts of NE Alabama are now in exceptional drought. Where I was (near Russellville, AL) is also quite dry with moderate drought conditions. Most of the grass in NW Florida, and everywhere I saw throughout Alabama, is brown. Skies were almost cloud free the entire time I was up there and just in the last week Lower Alabama and the FL Panhandle were added to the "abnormally dry" category.

Same thing here in the PNW. You don't use umbrellas (unless you want to protect your hair).

Umbrellas are useless here anyway most of the time due to wind. Doesn't do any good if it's blowing in from the side.

Winnipeg has no snow yet. It officially hasn't fallen yet either, though people have told me they've seen snow falling in local areas for a small amount of time. It's looking like we will enter November without snow, which isn't too bad of a start for a USDA zone 3A climate.

I used my umbrella today.  The snow changed to rain during my commute home (which took an HOUR because people here are too dumb to drive in what counts as a good day in Rochester), as was forecast (though the forecasts had it changing a couple hours earlier; at least I didn't need to use my umbrella and snow brush at the same time).

Chilly and gross here today. It wasn't as bad when it was snowing (started about 10:20pm) but it changed over to rain about 1:30 PM today. Everything that accumulated turned into an awful slush. For the rest of the day, it was in the low 40s and pouring-ew. I'd rather it'd be 15 degrees colder and snowing.   :ded:

Crazy warm here today and yesterday. Temps got into the high teens Celsius (or low 60's Fahrenheit). Average high in the city is supposed to be just above freezing (average low is -6 C or 21 F) for this time of the year. The sun was very low and weak as it normally is this far north this time of the year, but it was still out shining.

Gonna stay warm and sunny (though not as warm as today) for the next week, which I'm not complaining about.

Some light graupel coming down in the lowlands around Seattle, with snow in the higher elevations.

Expecting about 15-30 cm (0.5-1.0 ft) of snow by midweek, along with winds up to 70 km/h (45 mph). Definitely will make the buses late for me. Temps will also cool off to well below freezing. Winter has arrived where I'm at.

Apparently schools were delayed due to a small amount of fluffy snow.  In Rochester, this is what we called "flurries", and it happened every day.  Sometimes I wonder if the people around here could ever survive lake effect snow (that said, ice is more severe over here than in Rochester, but it was below freezing during the entire snowfall, so I don't think that was much of a factor here).

Waaaayy snowier than usual in BC's Lower Mainland this weekend. 10-20 cm in the Coquitlam/Burnaby area. Here's a photo of my father standing in the snow, near the Coquitlam Central SkyTrain station. We clinched the new Evergreen Extension (Bruce) while in the area.

This is the same weather system that dumped a bit of snow in the Seattle area (see Bruce's tweet above), but the area is more exposed to continental arctic air, thus the snow stuck around longer.

It's worth noting that this area is receiving a La Nia winter, which means colder and wetter than normal. The Seattle/Vancouver area is already looking at more snow next week (twice within one week, which is unprecedented for an area this close to water). The Coquitlam/Burnaby/New Westminster area of BC should be seeing highs around -5 C (23 F), which is insanely cold for this area.

Based on the description, they're probably closed already.  Maybe Cuomo went there?  Would explain a few things.

More than 8 inches in some of the higher elevations.  The version I saw was 3-5 most places, with "7-8 locally", and some areas shaded for 6-10.

Totally agree.  Weather forecasters have it way too easy, and way too many people simply shrug their shoulders and say "You can't control the weather".  That's true...but there's a whole industry dedicated to predicting that weather.  Many people have their favorite weather forecasters, and are very proactive to giving them the benefit of the doubt and will defend them as much as possible...which I never understood.  They're a TV news spokesperson reading a teleprompter for a few minutes, using information generally provided to them via computers.  Their job is miles easier, and pays better, than anything the defender does.

Gets me even further when weather forecasters continually say forecasts outside of 3 days aren't accurate, yet they're not really providing much proof forecasts within 3 days are accurate either.

Here's another example of media idiocy when it comes to predicting weather.  Snow is forecast for early Saturday morning in Greater Boston.  So, this morning, the weatherman for the local radio station (who works for the station, and is not from AccuWeather, etc.) stated we will get 1 to 3 inches.  Two minutes later, the anchor (who is presumably less expert than the weatherman) stated we will get 3 to 6 inches.

The weather stayed around the 0 C mark in Orford, QC, just cold enough to keep it snowing but it was also nice and comfortable on the ski hill. We also got some snow overnight, so overall my day at Mont Orford was a lot of fun, and a great way to end a week of skiing!

There was snow at sea level in Torrevieja, which has an average January high of 61F.

That's true,
Crazy weather in Spain: a ton of snow in the Southeast, which has even shut down freeways. Ironically that area is the driest part of the country.
At the moment isn't raining, though it had been raining from yesterday morning to half an hour now, with hail sometimes; and has been raining almost the whole week. In Wednesday it even snowed!
There are even some towns completely isolated because the floods on roads (not motorways though) at the moment, some areas of the island are closed to car traffic and the two dams in the island have opened their gates to allow water exit because they're completely full! Look at the video here to see what I'm referring: http://ultimahora.es/sucesos/ultimas/2017/01/21/243508/numerosos-incidentes-mallorca-por-temporal-lluvia.html (http://ultimahora.es/sucesos/ultimas/2017/01/21/243508/numerosos-incidentes-mallorca-por-temporal-lluvia.html)
It's a pity there's been so bad weather, because this week there were local holidays in all the towns and villages of the island: on the 17th because it's Saint Anthony, which is a holiday in all the towns and villages of the island but Palma, the capital; and in the capital, the 20th is a holiday because it's Saint Sebastian, the patron of the city. And, to be worse, the tradition on both festivities is to go barbecuing in the streets and seeing parades with lots of fire and pyrotechnical stuff, so this year our local holidays have been a bit deceiving...

My uncle was telling me how he heard about the lack of sunshine we had in January, and I found this short article online about it:
http://www.570news.com/2017/01/29/january-seeing-less-average-hours-sunlight/ (http://www.570news.com/2017/01/29/january-seeing-less-average-hours-sunlight/)

Quote
If you feel like you havent seen the sun in a very long time, youre not wrong.

Waterloo Region saw less sunlight this January than in past years.

The average amount of sunlight in January is 86 hours, or 21 days of sunlight.

However, as of January 29th, weve only had 12 hours of sunlight, or four days with sun.


The only sun Ive seen for us was New Years Day, which was really nice. The 2nd, in the morning. The 6th and the 15th, which were really nice for the most part, and thats about it, says 570s Weather Specialist, John Wilson.

The lack of sunshine is likely due to the mild temperatures weve had over the past few weeks, as cold weather is required in the winter for sunshine.

Milder weather means lower clouds and fog, which we have seen lots of this month.

Good news is, that as we head into February, some sunshine is in the forecast for our region!

Thankfully the last week has been more sunny, because the cloudy days have been a bummer. I'm hoping for more snow too, since I'll be skiing in Ellicottville, NY next weekend.

Not even an inch of snow has fallen in the Chicago area since December 19, and there's hardly any predicted for the rest of February.  Rain and thunderstorms forecasted tonight into tomorrow.  I saw lightning strikes on three different days in January.  A strange winter indeed.

South Hill/Puyallup, about 30 miles south of Seattle, has received 14 inches. Is that sufficient to cancel school?

Ravenna is at about 2" now.  Ravenna gets around the least snow within Seattle.  There's microclimates, more on hills, more closer to Puget Sound where the snow hits land first.

Hills are an issue.  Also consider that we only get snow within the city for a day or two every 2-3 years, so:
Drivers don't get in practice
Cars have on all-season tires and most have 2wd
Only enough snowplows to plow major arterials
Also it's warm, wet snow, not powder.  Expect fun in the morning after the wet snow turns to ice overnight.

Roads are "okay" here, across the river, relatively speaking given the ongoing snowfall.

That said, took them longer than usual to plow my road today, probably due to the lousy predictions.

Yeah, I was expecting 4 inches. Not this nonsense. Troy DPW is usually really good with this and they can't keep up. If I had to get out, Congress Street has ruts and I could probably make it. Minor streets and and suburban subdivisions aren't so lucky. One of my professors is snowed in and her street hasn't been touched.

While y'all are getting snow & cold, we are running air conditioners and enjoying muggy 80+ warmth & a mix of sun & clouds. But the weatherman is predicting a cold front to come thru today. This week's temps will be 50s & 60s for highs & 40s & 50s for lows. Then back to warm spring weather.

Shreveport set a new record high for Feb. 11: 86, beating out 81 from 1999.

Up until about 8 last night, The Weather Channel was saying that all we'd get was some spotty rain and wind.  We had that...

...and then light snow and flurries this morning.

Forecast for Saturday also dropped by about 10 from the 20s to upper 10s.

I bet that's the same storm that will be affecting us down in the Chicago area tomorrow.  Rain and thunderstorms forecast, giving us a springtime feel.  Up into the mid-60s though (or about 18C)--late winter warmth usually comes at a price, though--storms.  Gotta convert it for the Canadians!

Funny thing:  watching CBS3 Philly snow coverage yesterday morning, a news truck was filming travelling up the NE Extension I-476, which was pretty obvious to a local roadgeek by the overpasses.  First time was in the 26-31 widening construction zone, and the in-studio news broadcaster said they were on "Sumney Pike" - which doesn't exist.  Nearby, there is a Sumneytown Pike.  Second time, they were further north near the Quakertown exit, and the news broadcasters said they were on the Schuylkill Expwy.  The third time, they got it right.

It snowed Tuesday and I got to work 12-5 instead of 4-10. That's because I went in with my mom, who's a pharmacist at the grocery store we both work at, and she was supposed to be 12-9, and I was supposed to be 4-10, but about 12:30 they said we would close at 5, so I punched in and worked until 5 and then my mom and I both went home.

There's a rainfall warning for Southern Ontario.

Quote
Heavy rain is expected. The ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall. 40-70 mm of rain expected today through Saturday. Rain will spread into Southwestern Ontario this morning and is forecast to persist into Saturday as the weather system responsible stalls over the region. The rain is expected to taper to showers late Saturday or Saturday night. With the ground already saturated, there is the potential for local flooding. For information concerning flooding please consult your local Conservation Authority or Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry District office. ### Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

The news last night was showing the flooding happening in Quebec, including Montreal and Gatineau. It doesn't sound like the flooding here will be too bad, but then again, they also weren't expecting what they got in Quebec to be as bad as it was, so who knows.

Really warm. It's only in the lower seventies but I'm still going to go out to the garage and dust off the window AC unit. Not to install itnot quite yet, mostly because it'll definitely get cooler again before it becomes perpetually unbearably warmbut to prepare for the annual summer ritual of getting the damn thing in the window.

More hot weather in a school without ac.

Most schools have a few rooms with AC, even if the majority of the building is not. These rooms are usually ones that have people working there over the summer, which are often the workplaces of the people in charge of the school. Auditoriums are also usually air conditioned. Does your school have a few air conditioned rooms, or none at all?

I'm stunned that a public facility out east wouldn't have AC. My elementary school in Seattle (max summer temp usually mid 70s, and usually a dry heat), built in the 60s and hardly upgraded since, has AC. I usually take for granted public facilities having some form of AC.

When was your school built, RGT?

Post by: cl94 on June 13, 2017, 04:06:32 PM
Most schools in New York don't have A/C except in a few areas (auditorium, offices, cafeteria, etc.). The short time you need it during the school year doesn't justify the millions in cost to install it, especially if the school has steam or hot water heat and the district is struggling to pass a budget that funds the arts because funding keeps getting cut. New buildings (1990s or later) have it, but that is the exception.

Can't speak for an actual Phoenix resident, but in my experience in places like Vegas (also Desert Southwest), it's a pretty dry heat, so it doesn't feel as hot as you'd think it would. But that's not to say it's not hot. It's still fucking hot. But it's about as hot as it would be in Atlanta if it was 105 and super humid.

Opening the front door kinda feels like opening an oven to check cookies, but the heat isn't quite as extreme of course.

Places like stores are often air conditioned too well, so going outside after being in one for a while gives me the same sensation as stepping into a hot tub on a cold night. In other words, it feels GOOD! (IMO)

The worst part about the heat though is all the constant complaining about how hot it is. I really don't mind our heat.

The next 3 days the temperature will hit 120f (Palm Springs-Palm Desert), a heat wave in CA will make things uncomfy for the first day of Summer (Northern hemisphere). El Nino made the normally cool California ocean current warmer, so you have beaches in Orange County closed or be empty all weekend, due to numerous sightings of great white sharks from Hawaii.

As well as in this side of the pond. Summer starts at 4:29 UTC on June 21.

Its supposed to be 110-113F the next couple days where I live in the Californian Central Valley.  The trouble for me is that it is 75-80F in the morning when I do my distance running which is way too quick of a jump from 50-60F to have time to adapt which means I have to run shorter distances.  I'm waiting for having to deal with some sort of heat stroke case at work, I held a class yesterday and we'll see who's listening.  Also I keep telling people to turn the damn AC units up to at least 80F during the day but everyone keeps insisting on 72F which is leading clogs and failures.  Its almost like I didn't live in Phoenix for 13 years and have no clue what I'm talking about.

88 at siesta time? Isn't that just typical Spanish weather this time of year?

The same High Pressure zone is giving me a meltingly hot (buildings aren't designed for it, plus we have the humidity) 84F at 4pm today - a slightly cooler day that the last four. Tomorrow will break 30C (and 33C in London) then thankfully we return to proper British summer weather of about 20C/68F (ie what we have now at 11pm - 100 minutes after dusk*) and cloudy.

*I'm surprised at how dark it is given the date - I've sat outside and been able to just about read at this time of day at this time of year at slightly more southern latitudes (and at these ones), but it's like it's midnight, despite being Nautical Twilight for another half-hour, and Astronomical Twilight until 0058 on the 21st. Of July. It shouldn't be cloudy according to the radar - and I can see a few small ones just about (though no stars, but that might just be a light pollution issue as I rarely see stars unless I go to other parts of town), and the clouds often reflect light from more northern places (and if I look north the sky is slightly lighter). It's most odd. Perhaps it's heat haze - like that which I saw over Oxfordshire while descending down into it this morning, but I'm on the top of a hill and it was clearly only in the Vale.

If she was of hurricane strength (74+mph sustained winds) the east side has the most severe weather ie highest winds, storm surge, tornados & heaviest rainfall only higher in the actual eyewall. They are expecting winds to 20mph :wow: :-D with up to 8" of rain, our sandy soil soaks it up quickly so flooding isnt a problem here.

Seattle's climate has always reminded me of London. Anything in the 90s is unusual. Nights in the 60s and 70s feels very unusual. Record temp right around 100. Pretty much the same. Although I think we have slightly less humidity during dry weather.

It's supposed to be around 90-92 this weekend. No one's losing their minds yet, but it's only a matter of time.

London is slightly hotter than where I am (urban heat island principle, plus it's lower as I'm around 500ft which drops me a further degree, and also means that snow in winter is much more severe) - seems about right.

Looking, Seattle is slightly warmer (record of 103 vs 100.6, average high of 60.3 vs 59.36) and colder (record low of 0 vs 8.2, average low of 45.0 vs 45.38), somewhat sunnier (mean monthly sunshine hours of 2169.7 vs 1632.6), and significantly wetter (152 rain days vs 109.6 and average rain inches 37.49 vs 23.7).

I'm surprised I haven't gotten a flash flood warning in my area yet. It's just a severe thunderstorm warning. Of course, it's all part of some tropical rainstorm, but I'm getting tired of the rain.

The 90+ degree heat over the weekend in Seattle proved to be a record-breaker. It broke the record for the 25th of June (93, previously 87 in 2002), and also tied for the hottest June day ever (93).

TWC's 15-day outlook doesn't predict any rain soon. Though that's normal. Seattle summer weather is generally dry, with most of our rain in the form of mountain storms rolling into the lowlands. At least as far as I can remember. kkt or Bruce may want to confirm that.

The home I grew up in had A/C, but my current abode lacks it. A lot of homes in the Seattle area don't have A/C. Which is rather confusing, because every summer, we complain about how hot our houses get, and there are many, many endless weeks of rather warm weather, that heats up buildings to the point where A/C is extremely helpful. What's worse, many new homes don't have A/C. They usually have the ducts to support it, but that's about it.

That's not really all that bad, from a Midwestern point of view.  17 inches of rain overnight, and now we're talking floods.

As for the weather here, southwest of Chicago, it's warm, muggy, and sunny, with a high of 88 and humidity of just 36% (down from the last week).

Title: Re: What's your weather currently?
Post by: english si on July 18, 2017, 06:44:23 PM
Because our thunderstorms happen late in the day and the UK isn't that hot, the water that falls takes a while to be evaporated back into the air, giving a fresh morning and blue skies. Because more of the sun's energy is reaching the ground than if it was cloudy, the water does go back into the air efficiently and often we get round 2 the following evening - but after a sunny day that wasn't muggy in the morning.

However this storm didn't last long, and it's more muggy now than before. It's going to be muggy and cloudy all tomorrow and while chance of rain is low, there are warnings about storms (I doubt we'll get one).

82 degrees with 79% humidity, according to Rainmeter's weather applet. It was supposed to get to 95, but some surprise rain chased some of the heat away.

Seattle's dry streak continues. No measurable rain fell. Several surrounding municipalities had some measurable rainfall, but the airport recorded none. So, officially, we're like 35 days now without rain. And the forecast shows no rain anytime soon.

Which it can be, when doing scientific work. But having zero be a temperature that almost no one ever encounters in their life doesn't prove very useful for everyday activity. Hence why I think Celsius is superior day to day (and why I think it's superior to Fahrenheit as well).

Then thunderstorms overnight off the retreating sea breeze. Watching storms over the ocean is some of the most calmest things to do for me.

I'm surprised more people in this area don't invest in a room-sized A/C unit. I have one just for my bedroom so that I can sleep at night. It was only $500. Every summer it's the same fucking story. Apparently, no one around here has A/C because it's never hot enough. Bullshit. It's in the 70s, 80s, and 90s every day for three months every year. It's worth the investment.

It just wasn't necessary for decades here. Prior to the 2009 heat wave, a lot of towns had never recorded temperatures above 95 degrees. Things have accelerated over the last few years, however, and many new homes come with air conditioning.

My HOA forbid air conditioning until recently due to the strain it would put on our shared electrical grid. And $500 is actually a fair bit to spend on (what was) a few days of discomfort per year.

It is a fact that most homes here still lack AC. A 2013 housing survey (http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/data/as-seattle-sweats-few-air-conditioners-cool-us-down/) showed only 16 percent of occupied units had AC. Since 2010, 25 percent of new apartments (http://www.seattletimes.com/business/real-estate/big-spike-in-apartments-with-a-c-as-seattle-gets-warmer-landlords-launch-arms-race/) have come with AC.

Hot and smoky and humid.  Generally yucky.  Visibility maybe 3/4 mile.

Summer used to be a great time in the Pacific Northwest.  Generally no more than a week or two with highs above 80, generally sunny.  But this year it's been a lot hotter, plus the smoke never seems to go away for long.  Summer is what we look forward to during month after month of thick low clouds and drizzle.

The weather here is the most beautiful September weather I can ever remember. Feels more like fall. As I type this at 11:40 Sunday morning, it's 67F and not a cloud in the sky.

God bless vain young women....yesterday at the football game in Charlottesville, the young lady sitting in the row in front of us was wearing a nice low-cut cleavage-baring top that clearly revealed goosebumps everywhere as our side of the stadium fell into late afternoon shadows, but she wouldn't cover up...  :hyper:

A cold front swept thru a couple of days ago & brought us a few days of low humidity & temps 10 degrees below normal. Highs in the low 80s low humidity & very comfortable night temps in upper 50s-low 60s. Open the windows & turn off the ac for the 1st time since March loving it.

Irma wasn't suppose to affect our weather at all but with each new forecast her winds are predicted to get closer & closer. If the forecast proves correct we will have winds up to 50mph with heavy rain & thunderstorms but we are getting off easy compared to what the folks in the peninsula are dealing with.

With me living in Dalton, Georgia, which the effects of Hurricane Irma are creeping into, here we currently have both a Tropical Storm Warning and a Flash Flood Watch. Lots of wind and rain is headed our way, with some already creeping in. We may be expecting wind gusts of over 40 MPH.

I am on the extreme edge of Tropical Storm Jose (it's no longer a hurricane). Winds are noticeable, and it is lightly raining. This wouldn't be recognizable as the edge of a hurricane just by going outside and measuring rain and wind, though.

The "rainy" response by Roadgeekteen is also caused by being on the extreme edge of Jose. (Well, the rain is. The response might not be.)

Orange and windy as the eye of ex-Hurricane Ophelia passes about 250 miles west of here bringing a load of Saharan Dust.

This was the Shipping Forecast yesterday for Fastnet - note that word for the state of the sea!
(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DMPQgkSW0AAo-_O.jpg)
The offshore lighthouse that names that part of the sea measured a gust of 119mph earlier, and sustained winds were 88mph average - while the official channels refer to it as ex-hurricane, it is very much hurricane force winds (albeit only cat 1) in a cyclone from the tropics - it seems hurricane.

Ireland is responding to being holed up at home by drinking and cracking jokes.

Funnily enough it is the 30th anniversary of "The Great Storm" today, an extra-tropical cyclone that pummeled southern England with even stronger winds than Ophelia, catching it by surprise as the tracking was bad (and the BBC forecaster terribly misleading - so much so that he hasn't lived it down, and the audio of the 'bad' forecast played at the Olympic Opening Ceremony).

That's stunning! You'd think there was a wildfire nearby (not sure if that's a problem in the UK like it is here in the western US).
There were/are wildfires in Portugal that contributed - ie about a 1000 miles away!

We do have wildfires, but they weren't even seen as a serious threat until 2012 after several bad ones in 2011 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13277476). Britain mostly deforested itself and so there's not vast expanses of woodland (though there are many ancient woods) save for those created more recently for forestry industry. All large wooded areas are fairly intensely managed. Certainly, near London, there is very little.

Things like Epping Forest and the New Forest, and other former-Royal hunting forests (Sherwood, though that's mostly been changed again) are mixed - some wooded areas, but broken up. Grazing is a key role for much of the English countryside, and sheep (and ponies in this New Forest example here (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@50.8713897,-1.5673513,3a,72.9y,129.15h,91.98t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipORRQ5P15cJVMrI85AJc7JPFVrqQwXSzO_mk0f8!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipORRQ5P15cJVMrI85AJc7JPFVrqQwXSzO_mk0f8%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi0-ya313.1388-ro-0-fo100!7i5376!8i2688)) aren't want to leave anything above a fine tooth comb, so one has to work against them to make copses - fences and the like, until the saplings become big enough to not get eaten.

It didn't drop it - here at least - it didn't even rain. I think the particles were very fine anyway, so it would be hard to notice anything other than a big drop.

Storm Brian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/201718_UK_and_Ireland_windstorm_season#Storm_Brian) (the second extratropical cyclone of the UK/Ireland winter storm season that ex-Hurricane Orphelia has dominated) have given today several short sharp showers, windy throughout and cloud-cover changing repeatedly.

Cloudy/breezy high 79 today. Possible severe thunderstorms tonight. I think we're done with the heat/humidity until March :clap:. Highs Monday-Thursday below 80 & clear weather.
Time to get my outdoor projects started, it'll be great to work outside & be comfortable.

Miserable Saturday in Western Washington. 1-3" of rain in parts (a lot for us -- rained nonstop from morning through early this morning), and in the mid-50s pretty much the whole day (even at night). It was windy a few days before, so a lot of drains were blocked up and there was plenty of localised flooding. Some rivers are also about to burst their banks.

Today has been good (some showers but overall dry). Forecast looks good too. At least no persistent flooding rains ahead (just showers).

In a stretch of some seriously nice weather in SEA right now. Upper 60s to near 70 tomorrow, and sunny. Halloween looks sunny for the first time in probably five years. It usually rains (my Halloween's growing up always sucked because of this). The weatherman says that it'll be the first dry Halloween for a decade, but I remember it being dry more recent than that (and also very cold -- well below freezing, which is unusual for October, even in the Seattle foothills where I grew up).

Apparently Central California is getting the first sizeable rain of the fall/winter season.  I might be in the minority on this but I really hope it isn't anything like last year when a lot of the roads got taken out in mudslides from heavy rain volumes in mountainous areas.  CA 1 and 35 are still jacked up, many others that almost never have problems like 198 and 245 also had slide closures.

It's 43 degrees now, so I checked if it was really 75 eleven hours ago and thirty miles away.

It was nowhere near 75 when you posted that, even though the high that day was likely 75.

75 degrees at 10 PM in Massachusetts in November (which didn't happen) would be unusual, but just posting two digits without clarification every few posts is pointless.

That sounds truly intriguing. I have never seen or heard of such a thing, but weather can do many things, so I'll say I'm not surprised that it can occur (albeit rarely). I actually just started tuning into The Weather Channel right at this moment, and it seemed like I barely missed some sort of something that it was saying or showing about thundersnow (as I saw the last 2 or 3 seconds of it).

It is. You need a very heavy snowfall rate for the ice crystals to charge up enough to cause lightning. The Groundhogs Day Blizzard in Chicagoland was the textbook case for thundersnow. In fact I had nickel size hail embedded in the snow during that storm! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJt4nV6hM1Y (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJt4nV6hM1Y)

Yes, thundersnow is fairly rare, though it tends to be more common with heavier lake effect snow bands coming off the Great Lakes, especially if there's a large temperature difference between the lake's surface water and air in the lower levels (up to ~5,000ft in height).  The aforementioned Chicago blizzard in 2011 was an example of this....while part of a larger storm system, the predominantly northeasterly winds meant that Chicago's snow was lake-effect in nature.

Besides what ET21 wrote (and you don't necessarily need a "very heavy snowfall rate" either...mine happened with moderate snowfall rates), you need a layer of instability above the surface and pretty steep lapse rates (the rate at which temperature cools as you go up in altitude).  The latter is what can help influence thunder/lightning with lake-effect snow bands.

The next 15 days (up to November 29) are surprisingly consistent. Highs range from 38 to 51; nothing below or even near freezing, and nothing unusually high.

I'm not sure how common 15 days without an outlier is, but it seems unusual to me.

And Roadgeekteen, you don't need to post anything in the range 38-51 for the next 15 days; only unusual ones should be reported.

For the usual stuff, like where rain will fall and for what part of the day, more than three to five days is indeed pretty useless. But beyond that, long-range models can predict whether or not a metro area has a chance of seeing X-type of weather more than a week out. Locally, KING and KOMO can see a snow-storm coming "for Western Washington" more than a week out, but specific details don't come until later.

Currently 1 C (33 F) and snowing in Ironwood, MI (on the Wisconsin border). It was overcast in the eastern U.P., raining across the middle of the U.P., then quickly turned to snow in the western U.P. Here's a photo of driving through Ontonagon County on M-28.

For the roadgeeky here, this is why we need No Passing Zone pennants, Do Not Pass signs, and Pass With Care signs.  Striping is worthless until April.

Michigan is great at signing these, but Ontario almost never signs no passing zones. I agree that it's a great idea. Even in the summer, the pennants are nice and easy to see.

As for weather, it's currently -2 C (28 F) in Guelph.

Christ, if you need the NPZ pennants to not pass in that weather, you may have other issues. :)

You haven't driven much in Da UP, have you?  The roads almost never get plowed down to pavement.  Yoopers pass in that weather a lot.

Record high temperatures expected tomorrow. My area of Seattle is expected to reach 66. Seattle itself should see around 60. This is due to a storm that originated southeast of Hawaii. Very warm waters. The tropical system is bringing lots of rain with it. Or should I say, did. Today sucked...just rained all day. Tomorrow should be warmer and drier. Should be a nice change.

Sounds like beach weather.  Around Chicagoland, it's supposed to be a high of 43, coming up from a low of 29 in the morning.  It was only in the low 20s this morning.  Friday should be a heat wave in the low 50s.  :biggrin:

Yikes! That sounds downright cold, compared to the temperature it actually reached today:

A little bit of the tropics.  Monsoon rains yesterday.  Today, turned to partly cloudy with some sunbreaks and warm, warm, warm.  65 degrees, which is absolutely amazing for the day before Thanksgiving.

Almost as cold, but the Upper Peninsula sees a lot more snow.  Houghton and Hancock, for example, see an average of 210 inches of the white stuff every year.  One season, I was up there for college, they got over 320 inches from October through May, inclusive.

It was around 50, slightly breezy and "nice" where you were on Black Friday (according to your post). I don't see why Chicagoans were so much luckier. It wasn't that much warmer.

Does a temperature alone really count as "weather"? If someone asked me what the weather was outside, I wouldn't say "45", I'd say "rainy and chilly" (or whatever). If someone asked me what the temperature was, that'd be a different story.

There is another member who posts in this thread almost every day, but he gives very little information; sometimes he just gives a 2-digit number referring to the temperature. Most other people only post unusual events.

I am eagerly anticipating Friday, because the high is 43 and the low is 31, and it'll be rainy throughout the day. I get out of school (although I won't escape the work) and I get to enjoy my favorite weather. Today is mild. Mid sixties for a high and mid forties for a low.

Understood, and considering the next week will be 45, east wind, and sunny, its probably wise for me to wait until the weather gets a little more interesting. When it does get interesting, I'll try to post it in more detail. Again, I have a habit of speaking too technically in this subject.

Yes.

I disagree. "Weather" is defined by Merriam-Webster as "the state of the atmosphere with respect to heat or cold, wetness or dryness, calm or storm, clearness or cloudiness".

Note that temperature is just one part of the system.

Agreed although where I live, I have a wind and air stagnation advisory in affect. I live right on the border of the two so I'm affected by both.

Colder today.
Constant posts about the your local weather conditions are a disaster Constantly posting not much other than numbers and a few words can be a disaster.

FTFY  :biggrin:

To be honest, if it was very detailed weather data every time, then that would be mighty fine - but the problem arises when this thread gets clouded with posts that only contain things such as "41," "52," "45," "colder," "warmer," all within one day of eachother.

 :hmmm:

No offense, RGT, but I would highly recommend toning it down just a little bit in this thread.  :D
I am trying to add more details. My recent ones should have a few more words.

"Colder today",  :rolleyes:

In my neck of the woods, we had the first arctic taste the last couple of mornings in Chicago, 17 at daybreak today. Our first decent sticking snow comes in tonight with a couple inches possible, nothing too crazy.

Is it possible for you to send that cold weather and snow to Portland when you are done, I'm in the mood for some snow and cold weather (for ski season). :bigass:

Inversion layer expected to continue for the next week.  More clear nights, frosty mornings, sunny days.  Gradually worsening air quality.  Air temperatures at several thousand feet elevation are much higher than at sea level: Paradise, at 5000 feet, was reported at 65 today while us in the lowlands didn't even break 50.

Today (Saturday, December 9th), we have been under a winter storm warning in the Boston area since 4 am.  Started snowing about two hours ago, now have just over an inch in Wakefield (north of Boston).  Storm expected to intensify this afternoon, predicting a total of 4 to 7 inches before it ends early Sunday.

Settled in here for the duration - have fired up the scanners to monitor MassDOT and Mass State Police.

It's snowing in Atlanta today! Like, actually in Atlanta itself, not just the far northern suburbs like usual. Snow happens in town here maybe once a year if we're lucky. Snow this early in the season is even rarer; this is either the second or third time I've seen it happen here in December in my memory.

We ended up with about 1.5 inches here, per my measurement this morning. Some of the western and northern suburbs saw enormous totals in the 6-10 inch range. General consensus is that it's the most snow we've seen here since 1993.

Does any other city hope for snow as much as the Portland area? A lot of people in my school are talking about it snowing next Friday here even though not a single forecast ensemble model for now shows snow for the next 10 days. I just write them off as idiots or people that want a day less of school and any excuse to get it.

It snowed a little bit here yesterday. I actually got out of school at around 11:00 A.M., as a result. It was definitely a pleasant surprise for all of us students.

Dang. I remember when the snow disaster of Winter 2014 happened in Atlanta (and there was some here in Dalton, too, and my mother's car was having trouble driving on the road back home after picking me and my brother up from school, and other cars near us had the same problem), when so many vehicles were trapped on the roads, some students had to spend the night in schools, and there was even a baby born on Interstate 285. That was definitely a pretty crazy situation.

As a Minnesotan now residing in Iowa, I'm not sure. This area definitely does not get as much snow as I'd prefer. Generally speaking, a lot of it will come down, but then melt in the next one or two days :-/

Yep. Fortunately it wasn't nearly as bad this time, despite there actually being more snow. For one thing, there wasn't as much sleet/freezing rain (which was the real source of the problem in 2014), and the road temperatures started out much warmer, so little if anything was actually sticking to the roads until after everyone was already home for the night.

Some areas, mostly to the northwest, have been dealing with prolonged power outages thanks to trees falling onto power lines under the weight of the snow. Not generally an issue where I am, as all the power lines within a few blocks of me are underground.

Thursday's low is supposed to be 37 degrees, and there is "a chance for ice," I sense a marketing tactic and more hopefull school kids wanting an extra day of break.
Title: Re: What's your weather currently?
Post by: kkt on December 11, 2017, 12:16:42 PM
37 degrees could include a chance of ice.  The temperature is probably measured at the airport, five feet off the ground.  In a spot with colder exposure where no sun hits the ground through the whole day it could freeze.  Say, a bridge across a valley that's north or east facing.

Dunno about Oregon, but here every snow day taken in winter gets made up by having school another day into the summer.  A cold, dark winter day off traded for a nice June day seems like a fool's trade to me.

Today's fog kept me from landing on-time. We circled around SeaTac four times before diverting to PDX due to low fuel. So annoying when all you can see is blue sky, and this tiny patch of fog sitting over the airport. Our sunny days can be so bittersweet.

We sat at a gate for about an hour and a half, while we refueled and waited for the fog to clear. They eventually flew us back to Seattle. My itinerary for yesterday was PDX>SJC>SEA>PDX>SEA. Should have been three hours flying...turned into eight! :spin: I never fly anything except non-stop (almost always Alaska), so my first time flying Southwest was less than impressive, since a non-stop flight at 0600 MST would have beaten the fog. Not Southwest's fault there was fog (obviously), but longer days expose you to more variable weather, so I prefer the quickest journey possible.

Just in: Models are more certain of an attic blast to the Portland area:
December 26 high (mean ensemble): 27
Ensemble mean on snow on January 1: 2 inches deep (although not confident based on wide spread here)
Chance of snow this coming Friday is increasing. The Euro model has a half an inch falling that day although the GFS still has none.

Until then: just wet and/or cloudy.

Also seeing a change of forecast up here. Now, Tacoma may see 1-3 inches of snow, depending on the elevation, from Sunday night into Monday. Tomorrow morning should be dry, with the precip arriving later in the day, initially in the form of freezing rain or rain, before transitioning to snow.

Up in Vancouver, the chances of a White Christmas seem quite certain. It's very cold. The question is not whether it will snow or rain, but whether or not precipitation will arrive. Most of the American forecasts suggest no precip at all, whereas TWN and the CBC are predicting snow (just not a bunch, but cold enough for it to stick around through Christmas Day).

The NWS panicked when they upped the totals to 6-8".  We got 2 1/2"  of snow.  Just enough to make it festive but not enough to make it a nightmare to remove.  They really need to divide Hartford County in half; Hartland and Granby on the MA border could be forecast to get a foot of snow, while places in the New Britain/Bristol/Southington area 40 miles away could be forecast to get rain, and the whole county goes under a winter storm warning.

I can't even fathom most of those numbers. 7F is the absolute lowest I've ever seen in person.

We didn't have a white Christmas in Atlanta (no surprise, it's happened like 3 times in the last century), but it was quite cold, with temperatures holding in the mid-30s all day (a "normal" high being in the low 50s).

They're calling for a chance of the dreaded wintry mix tomorrow morning, followed by more cold for the rest of the week, and I'm keeping on eye on the possibility of snow on New Year's Eve.

Freezing rain is the worst thing to hear with a storm. That always worries me the most, though Chicago hasn't had a big crippling ice storm for 10-ish years

First snow last night dumped about an inch, second round is on the way today with another 2-4 inches. Then back into the deep freeze for New Years. There's hints of a possible blockage in the upper air pattern on long range forecasts that could prevent the arctic air from retreating much, hopefully that does not come true. Chiberia lives!

Just looked at the forecast for Chicago. Does it normally get below freezing for 2+ weeks during the winter? I understand that Chicago is prone to well-below-freezing temperatures, but for that long seems unusual.

FWIW, I'd take that over 40 and rain, which is what I'm getting plenty of in Seattle.

W'ere running about 15-20 degrees below normal. We normally see about one of these outbreaks per year, but to have two back to back arctic punches is unusual. Plus this new wave is under an abnormally strong high pressure (1052 mb forecasted!). Jan and Feb are our coldest months, so to have this in December is a bit extreme.

Here in the NW FL panhandle we're going into the deep freeze!
Our high temp today (12/30)was 61, we will not see 61 again for 9 days :wow:.
Our overnight lows will range 20-29. Our aver Jan temps are 62-37.

Every yr we have cold temps but usually only for a few days & then it warms up again. IIRC this is the same weather situation that brought us an ice storm in 2014. The setup for that was rain before the cold then the cold moved in before the rain moved out=ice. The roads were closed for 3 days in 2014. Neighboring Escambia County, Pensacola, FL bought a couple of sand trucks for"next time".. I've lived here 37 yrs & thats the 1st ice storm to shut everything down, at least they'll be ready in for the storm of 2091 :-D

I know it's 2 days later, but then again, that doesn't change anything with this long of a cold spell!  It definitely is unusual for cold snaps of this severity to last this long.  We're in the middle of an 11-day streak of temperatures that don't increase above 15 degrees.  Very abrupt when the highs didn't dip below freezing at all until Christmas Eve.  Winter's intensity arrived in a matter that was super sudden for us in Chicagoland.  Our high tomorrow isn't supposed to get above 1 degree F.  What the hell, we had really mild winters the past 2 years!

It's cloudy and 26F here at 1:30 in the afternoon, which is simply unnatural. I'm not sure what the record coldest high temperature is for New Year's Day, but the forecast high of 30 has to be a contender. The average high this time of year is about 51, but we're not projected to get above 40 until Sunday.

Very rare. The C&O Canal is safe far more often than the river due to its much smaller size and the lack of stronger currents. It's pretty common for there to be some amount of ice in the river at various times during the winter, but it's been years since the ice was solid and thick enough to be safe for skating. I know it was safe in January 1977 because of photos I've seen (I was three years old and so I don't remember), but I can't say I recall it having been safe since then.



I think I need to dig out my ski mask for Friday.

We only got a bit of snow, but its getting windy. Its trash day, too. Bad combination. I had to clean up someone elses stuff that blew into our yard. Since the box had an address on it, I piled it all back up in front of his garage door. Failing to secure your trash so it doesnt blow all over the place is damn obnoxious, and in his case he put it out Monday (when there was no pickup due to the holiday) and left it there all week, so its that much more annoying.

I wondered about that. To me, I'd have to see it to believe it, though it certainly wouldn't be with my vehicle!

I've been out on frozen lakes before, but never inside a vehicle. Back in high school, my friends used to joke about bringing their fancy trucks out onto frozen lakes in late Jaunary/early February and using the OnStar (is that still a thing?) feature, just to hear the confusion of the operator!

It's around 40 degrees with some light rain. This is notable only because the majority of metro Atlanta schools are closed due to a fear that there would be some freezing rain this morning (didn't happen, it was slightly too warm).

The rest of this week should finally feature some more normal January weather for around here with highs in the 50s (and even unseasonably warm mornings in the 40s and 50s thanks to lots of cloud cover and some more rain toward the end of the week).

Not enough to walk on, certainly (note the area with no ice out towards the middle there). Over near one of the bridges out of the picture to the right there are some decent-sized rocks on top of the ice where people presumably threw them to see if the ice would break, but I have no idea how thick it actually is.

Ours is been cold compared to other winters.  We had a week full of high temps in the 50's, and only the last few days we are back in the 70's.

So instead of getting part of that global warming, we have gotten some cooling instead.

Global warming is global, not regional. 1934 was the hottest year in the United States (excluding Alaska) until the record was broken in 1998. However, 1934 was no different from its surrounding years worldwide.

Upper 50s here in Atlanta, but mid-30s in Chattanooga right now. That, of course, is because there's a cold front on its way, apparently roughly along the US 411 corridor at the moment. After our midnight high of 61 this morning, we'll be in the mid-20s by sunrise tomorrow with maybe some isolated flurries. Another cold weekend and cold week ahead, possibly failing to get above freezing by Wednesday.

Ah yes. Being just a little bit north of you, here in Dalton, GA, I have seen the forecasts for some much colder weather moving in later tonight. I believe it was 50s here at the beginning of the day, IIRC. I do wonder if there will be any snow, even if barely anything.

Yesterday Dulles Airport hit a high of 70, tying a record for that date (set last year). Five days earlier, Dulles Airport hit a low of 1. What a weird week. I was off work yesterday and I was wearing shorts and a short-sleeved shirt around the house.

Mid-40s now, but soon to be falling fast. Another front rolling through, expected to bring a small amount of snow tonight (probably around an inch), but whatever does fall will probably stick around tomorrow with a "high" temperature in the upper 20s. Wind Chill Advisory to take effect at 9pm tonight for expected wind chills near zero.

Cold.  The DFW area is under a hard freeze warning.  The local NWS office issues that warning when temperatures below 10 are forecast.  Forecast lows in Dallas and Fort Worth are 11, in Waco is 9, and the coldest point forecast I found in the Fort Worth office region calls for a low of 2 in western part of the Red River valley.  The forecast for DFW Airport is the lowest in over 20 years (11 tonight, the last colder was 8 in 1996).

Similar stuff is going down here in northwest Georgia.

I believe our forecast called for some 15-25 MPH wind gusts tomorrow, a windchill close to 0 degrees, and highs never getting past the upper-20s or so. As a result of all this, I had no school today, and I have no school tomorrow.

Nice! Always cool to get some beautiful photos of the snow and such. I've actually gone to the hill at the top of my neighborhood in the past (walking, no vehicles were on the road for obvious reasons) and got pictures of the roads traversing downward with the snow on them, and the mountains in the distance covered with snow. Also, my school has been delayed a little bit tomorrow morning, so that is cool.

Y'all have plows. We don't, for the most part. Probably the majority of the roads around here that aren't state highways are still very much not recommended for use after last night's snowfall, which was about an inch. Very little of that melted today; it was sunny, but windy with a high around 25. The wind chill was 4 when I attempted to go outside to grab lunch (I say "attempted" because all my local takeout places were closed). And yes, schools were closed today and will be again tomorrow.

This. I don't really think it's worth it for Southern DOTs to spend tons of money on snow equipment, like massive amounts of salt, *extensive* fleets of plows, etc, and Southern residents to spend money on snow tires, chains, and all the other snow stuff, for something that happens at most two times a year. We've only got a little of that. As a result, the roads will remain slick and icy for a day or two, which means school will be closed, things like buses full of kids on all that ice poses a real safety risk.

Well, this got interesting...
Quote from: Portland National Weather Service
The core of cold air aloft associated with this system will move
onshore this afternoon and evening. The 00z/06z GFS convective
indices and NAM Bufr soundings show marginal instability moving
inland as 500 mb temps fall to -32 to -34 deg C. Past experience
suggests this may be a bit overdone, but even -30 to -32 deg C would
be enough to produce some weak instability with surface temperatures
in the upper 40s. Decided to add the mention of thunder inland this
afternoon and evening as a result. With freezing levels lowering, any
heavy showers or thunderstorms have the potential to produce small
hail; we have already had spotter reports of BB to pea sized hail
from the thunderstorms along the coast early this morning. If enough
sunbreaks occur to trigger strong updrafts at the surface, the
low-level shear profile appears favorable for some longevity to any
cells that develop, and a couple stronger cells with slightly larger
hail, gusty winds, and perhaps even a funnel cloud cannot be ruled
out today. Convective allowing guidance seems to suggest at least
isolated convection is likely this afternoon in the Willamette
Valley.

Going to guess he's somewhere near me (in which case, the answer to your question is yes). Here in the snow belt, it's 50 degrees and raining  :pan:

Correct, I live in PA.

It was similarly warm up here (my dashboard read 60 earlier today), but the temperature tumbled when the rain moved in. Mid-40s now, only two hours later.

Last night, had a 40% chance of flurries.  Turns out I woke up to 2" of flurries and school delays in my area.  30 miles south and east, places that were supposed to get 2" tops got 8.  Supposed to warm up into the 40's Thursday before rain, then a cold front and a change to snow on the backside (probably not much).  Pats fans and people flying back to Logan and TF Green from Minneapolis after the game may have to endure the remnants of a possible Sunday snowstorm.  Not liking the next two weeks; payback for an extended January thaw after the deep freeze.

47 degrees isn't the weather. That's the temperature. "Weather" encompasses many things beyond temperature, such as how dry or wet it is, if it's windy, etc.

The original post describes both temp and precip. I would assume that this is the baseline for a response, as it would be in real life:

"What's the weather, John?" "64 and raining, Mary."



Seattle is entering a dry streak. No rain in the forecast for at least four days (and Thursday looks to be mostly dry with a passing AM shower). Temps relatively steady in the low- to mid-50s. Beyond Thursday, I don't see any rain in the forecast. I'll take it! Especially after a very rainy January.

The missing rain in Seattle has, I believe, found a home in Atlanta. We got something like 1.5 inches yesterday (mixed with some sleet/ice in the far northern suburbs), with thunderstorms in the forecast all day on Wednesday, and a likely complete washout for the coming weekend. It'll be fairly mild, though, with highs around 60 for most of the week.

We're dry today, though. Sunny and 39 right now, with a forecast high near 50.

This is an odd thread. Whats the weather right now? Itll be a never ending conversation.

Definitely an endless thread. But to take the question literally, one's response would have to include more than just a single aspect of the definition of weather (posted above by Hurricane Rex -- thanks mate). In my opinion, that would mean including at least the temperature, and the amount of precip (or lack thereof) now and forecasted, since those were the two things mentioned in the OP.

Cloudy and 62 this afternoon. The rain is gone, but we still may not see the sun until around Saturday. Tomorrow will be colder, only in the 40s, but what the rest of the week lacks in blue skies it'll make up for on the thermometer with highs climbing into the 60s and perhaps even into the 70s(!) on Thursday, which would likely be a record high if it pans out.

Is that normal for your area at this time of year? (I don't know whether you live in a high elevation area or not.)



Tomorrow is a record high of 70, beating the previous record of 62. (It was an easily beatable record; if it was up to 2 days earlier or one later, it would only be about a 4-5 difference instead of 8, and if it was 2 days later, it would not be a record at all.)

It kind of is for this far into to February but usually happens a couple times in the winter in Fresno which is a little 200 feet above sea level.  What isn't all that normal is the chance of snow we have Thursday night into Friday morning.  If the forecast gets closer to the actual day I might get up early or stay up late to see it.  I had it snow on me twice in Phoenix so why couldn't it snow here when I have a wall of rock to the east that literally translates into "Snowy Mountains" in English?

Living the wedge life in Atlanta yesterday and today, meaning greater cloud cover and lower temperatures roughly along the I-85 corridor northeast out of the city while the rest of the area is sunny and warmer. Fog stuck around in the city today until nearly lunchtime before some blue sky started peeking through; thanks to a very warm start, that still allowed temperatures to make their way up to 75.

Some rain likely to come through tonight into tomorrow morning, then clearing out. Staying warm, with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s through Saturday.

We like snow here, and it would be great if this actually happens.  At Lake Tahoe (6229') it would easily double the snow we've had all season so far.

Mid-60s in Atlanta today, though it felt somewhat colder due to wind.

Rain tomorrow, to be joined by wind Thursday. Wind sticks around for Friday, but then it looks like we may get to see multiple days of sunshine for the first time in about three weeks, with fairly normal early-March temperatures (low 40s/low 60s).

I was planning on taking 88 over the Sierras at the end of the month.  I just visited Yosemite for the first time this year a week or so back, the snow level was up at about 7,000 feet at the time.  Kind of amazing how fast the season has turned, it was warming up and looking like it was going to be a dry a winter.

Same here in the CT valley, but go up in the hills north or west of Waterbury, and there was snow, with almost a foot in parts of Litchfield County.  Forecasters are still trying to push the idea that wraparound moisture will hit the valley and the Worcester and NE CT hills, but its still 40 degrees where I am.  Today was weird in that NYC got snow and we didnt.

Final total for my house is 16 inches. Unlike most storms this time of year, accumulations increase heading south (usually late-season snow hits near Lake Ontario hardest). Only 10 inches up in Webster, but closer to 20 inches down by Routes 5 and 20.

Roads were ugly this morning, but were completely dry by early afternoon. Empty, too - I had the cruise set at 75 mph for the entire length of I-590. That's an impressive feat unto itself, not to mention at rush hour on a day when we just got landed with over a foot of snow. Goes to show that the storm warnings scare off the bad drivers :)

Unlike the last nor'easter, this one totally missed us. We got no more than a few wet flurries and sprinkles; otherwise just gray skies with temperatures hovering in the mid-30's.

What's strange is that, a week later, we still have a solid 6-8 inches of snow on the ground from the last storm. March snow doesn't usually stick around like this, especially considering temperatures have risen above freezing every day since the storm. I'm blaming the lack of sunshine.

It looks like the Sierra Nevada will get one more round of substantial snow (several feet at the I-80 and US 50 summits) over the next few days.  Based on the calendar it's likely this would be the final event that would include any road closures until November.

The "Tahoe Daily Snow" skier forecast has a thorough discussion and usually turns out more accurate than the numbers hyped by traditional media.

Im in eastern Nova Scotia. Weve had three Noreasters in about 12 days and each has started with a bit of snow then quickly changed to rain. It will be +3 or 37F today.

But go a little west from here to the Annapolis Valley, Northern Nova Scotia and on up into New Brunswick and theyve got a fair amount of snow out of each storm.

Yesterday (especially once night arrived), it was pretty insane in my region. Right exactly where I am (Dalton, Georgia) never actually got much worse than thunderstorms, but surrounding areas (especially farther south and west) were not as fortunate. Elsewhere in the area, there was a risk of hail and tornadoes (and of course very severe thunderstorms), and IIRC, I think my mom showed me a video of what may have been a tornado in Cullman, Alabama (northeast and eastern Alabama was hit the hardest of them all). It was definitely crazy, but the fact that it happened, and during this time of the year, doesn't surprise me at all, actually. This is because late Winter and Spring sport the worst tornado and severe weather risks down here in the South (things really ramp up in late February and March, typically). Dixie Alley (Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, etc.) can be just as prone to tornadoes as Tornado alley itself (Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, etc.), but the activity in these places varies at different parts of the year. In the late Winter and Spring, Dixie Alley sees the most action, but in the Summer, Tornado Alley sees the most action. So needless to say, this probably won't be the last time something like this happens in my region for this season.

We regret to inform you that spring has been cancelled this year.

Well, okay, the severe weather mentioned a couple posts up by adventurernumber1 was pretty springlike. Down here inside I-285, I got a light show that kept me from falling asleep for a couple hours, but all the tornadic activity was confined to the west.

Today, though, is cold and windy, which seems to have been a theme for Wednesdays lately for some reason. 39 degrees at 10 AM; we might manage to hit 50 today (average for this date is 66).

Yeah, with all those storms it must have brought in a cold front, because it is extremely cold and windy up here as well. It got very cold very fast, and the wind was going absolutely nuts in my area yesterday. Throughout the entire day, the wind gusts were insane - the wind was howling wildly periodically, and there would be limbs banging up against the windows sometimes. Ironically, it seems that it was those very storms that has now set us back for the season, as now it is much, much colder.  :-o

Well, fortunately for me, looks like most of the noreaster stayed to the south of my area.  They were forecasting up to 14" yesterday for my town, but one model had dry air suppressing most of the heavy stuff to the south, and that ended up being the most accurate.  Snow that was supposed to start mid-morning held off till about 5:30 this evening (so much for the early school dismissals, and one city has total egg on its face for cancelling altogether).  As it turns out, they forgot to put the decimal point between the 1 and 4.  Heard parts of Long Island got up to 5 inches in 1 hour from a burst, and NYC area is looking at a foot.  50 miles south and I'd be snowblowing tomorrow morning.  Instead, I already hear melting.

Some parts of Seattle woke up to snow yesterday. A friend in Arlington (less than an hour north of Seattle) told me that he had 8 inches. That's a lot more than I thought there was, but he also lives close to the mountains which may explain all the snow that other areas didn't see.

As for the rest of Seattle, it's been a pretty dry March. Chance of rain tonight and maybe a few days this week, but it's otherwise quite decent. Mid to upper 50s. More 60 degree temps looking likely within the next 10 days (it was consistently in the 60s and 70s not more than two weeks ago).

The pollen in Atlanta is thick as snow, with temperatures to match. Already up around 70, looking at highs near 80 both today and tomorrow.

A cold front Wednesday morning should knock us back down into the 60s for the rest of the week, then the weekend is a complete question mark, with the forecast wildly gyrating between partly cloudy/65-70 and all-day rain and barely reaching...50?

I was wondering if that shelf cloud I could see from the south end was actually including lightning. That cold front yesterday was definitely brutal enough to produce some. Totally sunny after about 3:30 down here yesterday, but light rain preceding that. Felt like about 33!

We had a white Easter in Kansas City today. Winter decided to reappear after a month-long hiatus. We had t-shirt and shorts weather two weeks ago, and we hadn't had any snow since late February. Without knowing I took this pic today, I would have guessed this was taken January 1 instead of April 1.

UPDATE: Winter is back for another round. It's 66 today, and there is at least a 50% chance of snow from 3pm to midnight tomorrow. it'll be 14  by Saturday morning.

It looks like Spring has once again canceled its reservations for this year. My family and I left Hilton Head Island, SC today (we took a trip there for the past few days) to go back home. We stopped on the Awkright Rd. exit off I-75 in Macon, GA, and I was surprised to feel how cold the air and wind felt. Now as I have just arrived back home in Dalton, GA, it is even colder. Here, tonight, the low is 31 degrees, and it feels like 28 degrees. It will be quite windy until the morning. This was definitely sudden and unexpected, at least for me. There must have been a large cold front that came through to cause this while I was gone.  :-o

It's snowing in April in the South. Never seen this before. It's light, not accumulating, and mixed in with a little rain at times, but nonetheless, snow in April, in the South, in the Piedmont. Pretty rare.

It's 30F, but otherwise clear with some clouds. My buddies further north are getting some winter weather right now, though. I'm torn between being relieved of the burden that weather causes, and being jealous because Iowa weather is too tame for my tastes this time of year. I like the unpredictability of Upper Midwest weather in early April. :)

You want unpredictable?
Try Upstate New York. Every day since Thursday (four consecutive days) has had accumulating snow, melting snow, and sunny breaks at random intervals.

I'm all for a good snow, but I'm ready for spring. The sun is just too strong for snow to stick around anyways. We got as much sun today as we will on Labor Day, and snow on Labor Day is unheard of. Heck, last year mid-September was still beach weather!

Another cold weekend in Atlanta. We dropped into the mid-30s this morning and cloud cover helped keep it down to around 57 this afternoon, conditions more typical of mid-February (which, of course, was when we actually had consistent 70s like we should have now!)

A warming trend this week should put us into the 75-80 range by about Thursday, then...of course...storms and another cold front for the weekend. On track for probably the worst Atlanta spring I can recall.

We've been having a lovely February this April pretty much everywhere east of the Mississippi and north of I-10.  Highs were only in the low 40's today in Southern New England, with lows in the low 20's and more of the same tomorrow and Tuesday, with the threat of snow on Tuesday.  I could see this kind of weather in northern Maine, but all the way down past NYC?!?  We should not be seeing lows in the low 20's after early March.   Hoping and praying the warm air that will be on our doorstep punches through next weekend and we hit the low 70's instead of the possible maritime air that would keep us in the 50's.  After the coldest first half of Spring I can remember, we deserve it.

Haha, probably viewed the same way me living Los Angeles and having to hear people in Oklahoma City complain about traffic I assume? I hate the cold with a few exceptions. I don't know how I'd survive in MN but I'm sure I'd eventually get used to it. In LA, it isn't uncommon for people to start wearing scarfs when it gets below 60 or even 65. I feel right at home there!

And the day before it hit only 20 above, it was 44 during the day. I was wearing only shorts and a t-shirt outside. ;-)

It's a clear 64-degree evening here after a high of around 80. Despite that, I find myself venturing outside only when absolutely necessary thanks to back-to-back days with pollen counts over 5000, which my sinuses do not appreciate in the slightest. So I have mixed feelings about the rain expected to come in Saturday nightSunday morning; hopefully that won't derail any weekend plans, but it should at least temporarily remove the yellow coating over everything.

So far, April in Seattle has been a total disappointment. Passing showers almost every day since the first, and highs maxing out in the mid-60s on a few days only (mostly low- to mid-50s). March felt like summer in comparison.

You are not alone with the pollen problems. Spring is visually a beautiful season, but it is the worst one for me physically. This is because my sinuses, too, go absolutely nuts from the pollen. I will get the sneezing and the fiercely itchy eyes like crazy, and more. I was in South Carolina on vacation last week, but the whole time I was sneezing (and even had a few nose bleeds, aggravated by both that and my high blood pressure) and itching all over the place, since I was outside a lot. It was beautiful, but I had to suffer physically, unfortunately.  :-(

Spring, until yesterday and today, has been nonexistent in the northeastern US.  Its been absolutely miserable, with March and April having both resembled February.   Even after this April Thaw with 70s yesterday and maybe 70 today, well see cold rain possibly mixed with sleet at higher elevations and highs in the 30s tomorrow X-(  with 6-12 of snow possible in northern New England.

Likely because saying "winter" is more encompassing of the multiple types of precipitation that can occur during a single storm. Summer storms typically only have rain or hail...much more discrete and easier to differentiate. Depending on your specific location and the time of day this past weekend, we had snow, rain, freezing rain, sleet, or graupel.

I actually experienced a bit of approximately pea-sized hail over the weekend, in addition to rain.

Then, later that day, the rain turned into snow. Go figure.

Not sure how it works in the Northeast, but many of Seattle's historic snow storms have occurred in Autumn (although almost all post-Thanksgiving). The running gag around here is that winter is actually late November through February. Snow in March or April is very uncommon.

Around here, if we thought winter ended in February we'd be kidding ourselves. Lake Erie is famous for producing intense November snowfalls, but the vast majority of yearly snowfall occurs after Christmas. A lot (if not an outright majority) of major nor'easter's occur in March, too. This season has been particularly gloomy and depressing (last day above 50 degrees was in February), but we get accumulating snow in April almost every year. We even had a May snowfall a few years back - it's usually mid-May before spring has truly sprung.

We're on the rollercoaster in the northeast.  Yesterday was 70 and sunny.  Today barely made it above 50 with on and off rain mixed with some sun.  Tonight, it is supposed to get down into the upper 30's, and there may even be some snow in the air in the higher terrain.  Tomorrow's highs look like they'll barely hit 50.  Then Tuesday, it's supposed to be 75 followed by low to mid 80's Wednesday and Thursday.  April goes out like February and May comes in like June.

The heat is about to be very much on in Atlanta. We're a little warmer than average today (82 now, likely high around 85), with upper 80s coming for the end of the week and likely poking into the 90s for the weekend, which we usually don't see until June. Plenty of sunshine through all of this, so the local pools will certainly be popular this weekend.

Low 60s is fine if you're used to really cold temperatures, but I'm not. Low 30s is about as cold as it usually gets round here. And it's been in the 70s pretty consistently for the past few weeks, so it feels cold. Low 60s could also be fine if you're 100 pounds overweight :-D

Lol I wasn't trying to imply that you might be overweight. Just that those who are comfortable in cold temperatures are either used to it, or have a few extra jackets on... ;-)

Cloudy and 75 at the lunch hour. We got some rain earlier this morning; today is the second of what is projected to be at least 11 consecutive rainy days (maybe more, but that's as far as the forecast goes). The holiday weekend is expected to be a complete washout featuring several inches of rain.

The holiday weekend is not, in fact, a complete washout. I don't think it rained at all yesterday, and so far it hasn't rained today (82 degrees now after a high of 85), though we could see a little something later this evening. Most of tomorrow looks dry as well, with the rain arriving in earnest tomorrow night and likely continuing through midweek, depending on exactly where Alberto goes.

Yesterday, I was up in the Twin Cities (Mendota Heights, more or lessmy current avatar the destination), out in the field taking road pictures, and I think it peaked at about 95 sometime around 2 PM. Almost nary a cloud in the sky. I went through at least half a dozen bottles of Gatorade staying hydrated in the process. Sunscreen and taking breaks in my car, running my car's AC full blast, also greatly helped accomplish my goals.

Today, I'm back in Des Moines, and right now it's 97 and sunny. I'm not sure the AC in my bedroom window has stopped running since 9 AM.

I'm glad I'm not in Des Moines, then, because my AC did stop running yesterday and is in need of repair. Fortunately, today turned out to be a mostly cloudy but dry day; it's 82 degrees outside and 79 inside (I've had the balcony door open all day for ventilation).

Rain comes in tonight after midnight. No, really, they swear it this time.

From what I read in the paper, apparently downtown is at a low point where the topography acts as sort of a funnel into the Patapsco River, exacerbated by four or five smaller streams all flowing downhill and joining together near there. A look at Google Maps confirms the smaller streams. I havent been to Ellicott City in probably 20+ years.

Seattle is currently tied (https://goo.gl/k2iTwb) (with itself) for driest may ever. Only 0.12" of rain so far in May. And, it's the warmest May ever (https://goo.gl/3pKTp9), average 61.~ F (about a degree warmer than the previous record).

It looks like we may be done with Alberto's rain here. Ended up with a total of around an inch and a quarter, a far cry from the 4-6 inches that the forecasts claimed. Different story up in northeast Georgia, though, where some areas did see 6-8 inches.

It's partly cloudy and 84 now. Mid-upper 80s the rest of the week, then near 90 this weekend. May has been a warm month, about 5 degrees above average, but with March and April having been unusually cool, the overall spring average is pretty much right on target (+0.6 degrees).

Unfortunately, this (which holds true in Upstate NY as well) means that hardly any individual days have had average temperatures.

One month ago, on April 30th, it was literally snowing. Now, on May 30th, we smashed the daily record of 88 degrees, hitting 93 degrees this afternoon (not to mention the humidity). I wish the transition from winter to summer had been a little longer, preferably with a few solid months of temperatures between 55 and 75!

A heat-induced thunderstorm materialized over my city this afternoon and promptly dumped three inches of rain in about 45 minutes, causing a considerable amount of street flooding.

The rest of this week looks to be a pretty standard summer pattern: highs mostly 85-90, lows near 70, and about a 40% chance of thunderstorms every day.

I had two separate temperature drops occur this afternoon: first from about 90 to 85 around 4 PM for no obvious reason, then again to about 77 an hour later when a rain shower rolled through. After it moved out, we rebounded to about 82 before beginning the normal evening decline. Not terribly uncommon around here this time of year.

Actually it's slightly cooler than that here. 79 now after a high of 88. Today and Tuesday were the only two days this week that didn't involve some sort of mid-afternoon thunderstorm (on Tuesday, they waited until just before midnight instead).

Should be a little drier over the next week, highs staying in the upper 80s, lows in the low 70s. Pretty much normal.

It's important to note that Excessive Heat Warnings are issued based upon heat index (a calculation involving temperature and humidity), not just temperature.

Some places in the western US, where humidity is almost never a factor, use temperature alone and not heat index.

In addition, the criteria for an excessive heat warning is probably greater in Georgia than it is in Michigan. Similar to a winter weather advisory, where any snow at all is enough to issue the alert in Florida, but 3-4 inches is required for colder parts of the country.

Also, temperatures in the 90's are expected in Georgia. Not so much further north, where people are less likely to know how to prepare for and respond to the heat appropriately. Just the opposite happens in the winter - Georgia and Tennessee get Winter Weather Warnings issued for a few flurries that wouldn't cause us to even bat an eyelash.

Basically, weather is deemed "extreme" or "excessive" relative to expected conditions in that place, and what's expected varies a lot from place to place.

Yes, normal high temperature in Kalamazoo for today is roughly 81 degrees with a low of 61 or 62.  Earlier this week we didn't get out of the 60s for high temperatures. 

All of the lower peninsula is under a excessive heat warning.  There are no heat advisories in the upper peninsula, although I am surprised to see it is still 84 at 10:30 p.m. in Marquette.  It is only supposed to be 82 for a high in Marquette tomorrow versus 95 in Kalamazoo.  It is 83 in Kalamazoo at 10:30 p.m.

I went outside for less than 5 minutes today, to take out the garbage, and it was painful.  I try to walk to work when the weather is nice (about 1 mile) but I'm just going to stick with driving for the next couple of days.

You might find 95 bad if your dew point is 80 or greater.  It makes for air thick enough to drink.  Air that should require gills instead of lungs to breathe.

I love people here in western Washington, for the most part. But, right on cue, every summer, it gets really hot, and we always complain. Here's an idea, folks: buy a portable AC unit! They are not that expensive, and they work for years. They are one of the best investments. And I always hear the same thing: "I moved here because I like rain and I don't like heat". Well, you picked the wrong city. Seattle is hot during the summer, and it does not rain much at all.

Oh, and let's all conveniently ignore that it's barely 90 most days, and it's a very dry heat. If you can't handle that, you need to go live in a hole. Or somewhere with AC!

The summers have been getting hotter, and most homes (even up through the 90s, like mine) were not built with air conditioning. The way the suburbs were built also contribute to major heat waves, especially since naturally cool streams have been paved over with hot asphalt and concrete.

Also doesn't help that so much of our land (at least in the US) is just grassland.  I go for a walk everyday at work and I was thinking (as I was frying in the heat) about how few trees there are in our office complex, even though there's a massive empty field in front of one of the buildings.  It's so unnecessary!

I thought creeks were required to remain untouched?

Either way, the summers aren't dramatically hotter than they used to be, and AC units have been around for a long time. I don't expect everybody to have central air throughout their house, but if people can't even be bothered to save up for an AC unit, they have no room to complain.

The primary objective with portable AC units is to keep them in the bedroom, so you can at least get through the night. I don't expect people to have six or seven of those bastards throughout the house. It would be cheaper to install central cooling at that point.

What do you mean that some people can't handle air conditioning? Like, they're so skinny they feel cold at anything less than 80?

Hot day today, still 87 degrees at 7:30 after a high of 93. No afternoon storms today, at least, unlike the last two days, and it looks like we may get to stay rain-free for a couple more days. (July is the wettest month in Atlanta on average already, and we've had about 50% more than usual this year.)

This summer has been unusual in that it has been very dry (no rain, and parched lawns) yet also very muggy (extremely high humidity to the point of being uncomfortable). Seems kind of like a paradox.

It was the first rain in several weeks, and around here, that's long enough of a dry spell for any unshaded lawns to turn brown.

Absolutely crazy. I was able to escape to DC to see my mother for a couple weeks right as this second wave hit. My grandparents are normally workaholics during the day, but due to their age, they've been advised by more than a few people to just not go outside. Even our dogs have to stay inside, except to potty.

Glad that it's improving today through tomorrow.

Dang Crazy to think that wildfire smoke can happen in other places besides California.

Virtually all of the Puget Sound's smoke comes from British Columbia. For the nth-Summer in a row, BC is being ravaged by wildfires. When the winds shift to northerly (from the north), the smoke gets blown down from the Fraser Valley, and straight into Seattle. The Seattle-area can get smoke from other places, but IIRC, BC is the primary culprit.

The areas east of the Cascade Mountains are as dry as Southern California, and have the same old-growth forests to boot. It's perfect tinder for major wildfires.

Anyway, we're now under overcast skies instead of smoke (finally!), but the smoke is being pushed back in over the weekend.

AB is getting a lot of BC's smoke, and it seems to be also drifting east into SK and MB. Those places sometimes have their own wildfire problems, as does NT. Fires in NT and SK have messed up my travel plans in past years, and fires in northern AB have come close to doing so.

We're also feeling those pre-effects here in Atlanta, as the rain chance drops for the next couple days. Near 90 today, with a sunny weekend and temperatures in the low-to-mid-90s for the next couple days ("normal" highs should ordinarily be subsiding into the mid-80s by now). A weakening Florence will probably bring a small amount of rain here (maybe an inch or two at most) by about Sunday or Monday.

Windy!

Today has seen two windstorms here. Ali on its way to the North Sea and Bronagh on its way from the Atlantic. I've avoided the worst of it due to living relatively inland, and in the South - I don't think we've reached formal gales here (though a tree did fall down on the railway between here and London this evening, causing a great mess with people's commutes home - but that was probably a gust, rather than sustained winds), but we've had near-gale force winds for large chunks of the last 60 hours.

Tuesday saw the remnants of Hurricane Helene (downgraded from storm status as it crossed the county).
Wednesday Ali hit and it wasn't gone fully by this morning.
Today Bronagh was named and is currently pelting Ireland and the North with rain, and blowing strong here. It is going to be at its worst tomorrow.

Helene (we don't give new names if they already have one) might have faded away after reaching land, but Ali and Bronagh have become Storms just hours before landfall and have got stronger as they crossed Britain and Ireland.

The list of names only came out on the 11th, and - since we started naming them (OK, not very long ago) we've only had one other September storm. We had only 5 days without one, and then - like buses - three came along all literally one-after-the-other with little-to-no gap between them.

We saw our first freeze of the season this morning with temperatures falling to 31. A mostly sunny day will lift us comfortably into the mid-50s, though.

Tomorrow, however, looks like an utter nightmare. Heavy rain all day with temperatures holding in the 40s. Tuesday through Thursday don't look much better, either.

Sounds like our weather up here. Finally started dropping below 32 a few days in the last week, but only because it's been clear. Highs have been in the mid-50s. Definitely not as warm as last November (according to my posts on this thread).

Tonight and tomorrow night also dropping below 32, before a rain system moves through and drops the lows into the mid-40s. Then it dries out again for about five or six days, and then a much larger showery system settles in with highs in the low-50s/upper-40s and lows in the upper-30s. Classic northwest fall weather!

Co-signed. I just got back from Orlando; driving down there from Atlanta on Friday was quite unpleasant. The constant-ish light rain in Georgia wasn't too bad, but things got considerably worse south of the border. I always have my GPS on for long-distance drives in case of traffic calamities, and the heavy rain did a number on I-75 causing numerous crashes. I ended up being routed around one via CRs 318/225/329/225A and US 27, and the amount of standing water on the back roads was disconcerting. Made it through without issue, though.

Rain was thankfully absent on my return trip today. In fact I got abundant sunshine with temperatures in the 50s and 60s along the route, peaking around 70 somewhere in central Georgia. Now clear and 49 here at home, bound for a low in the upper 30s. Reasonably standard fare for mid-December here.

I just want to point out that the temperature of 65 I had yesterday was a record high for December 21; the previous record was 61, set in 1957.

Meanwhile, we haven't seen 65 here since December 2. Go figure.

It's mercifully sunny here today, about 45 now and headed for a high of 50. Average high is 52, so that's about right. It'll be mostly dry for the next few days, then it looks like we may get to finish 2018 with five straight days of rain. Certainly it's desperately needed; so far it's only been the 5th wettest year in recorded history here, and dammit, we expect nothing less than number one! (Kill me.)

Were in Jacksonville and its 47 but feels 41. Last night it was colder here than it was at home and the wind made it hard to steer a straight line. Welcome to sunny Florida, huh? (I wont miss the sun today if it stays cloudy because we have another day of driving in front of us.)

Yeah my one and only big sister (whos staying at our house for about a week or so) said the same thing last night about it being colder here than it was at her home. And while driving to and from the airport in order to pick her up late last night, it was so windy that it was hard to steer straight for our dad and his Audi Q5.

Were now in the Miami area, so perhaps its a little cool outside. Supposed to hit 81 Thursday.

Usually at some point during the winter the DC area will have a couple of 70 days, but not usually in December.

In Chicagoland--wind and rain with daytime temperatures in the low 40s.  Then it RISES to the low 50s overnight, and starts dropping into the lower 30s.  The warmest temperatures of the entire month of December might occur in the middle of the night.  How bizarre is that?

Perhaps about as bizarre as the possible thunderstorm that central Iowa is supposed to get this afternoon. Nothing's happened yet, though.

Edit: Radar image looks somewhat promising. If it's going to be a thunderstorm, it's going to be a really weak one.

Roughly two inches of rain in the last ~12 hours, with lots more to come. Atlanta has now surged into 4th place on the all-time annual rainfall total leaderboard (possibly 3rd by the time I write this, as we were only a half-inch away two hours ago).

We're looking at a warm and slightly drier than previously expected end to the year.

Yeah, at least on my weather app, I can see the current temp on my phone's home screen.

That being said, this one may replace Monday's: looks like we have a 60/40 shot at another decent shot of wind tonight, probably with a half an inch of rain. This system could still become to elongated to do anything but rain though. No freezing days in sight

Hahaha don't worry, I didn't get any thunder or snow myself in the Tacoma area (only Bruce actually got anything ^^^). I heard some loud thudding noises Saturday night, but I'm thinking it was branches falling, not thunder.

51 degrees, which is pretty warm considering it's still before 9 AM. Looking at our third straight day of highs in the 60s, but a cold front coming through today (bringing mostly just clouds, very little rain for once) will change that; after today we may not break 50 again for a week.

Cold and windy in Atlanta today. It was still in the mid-30s at lunchtime; we eventually struggled our way up to 44 and are now on our way down to the mid-20s for tonight. For comparison, we're currently at what is normally the coldest point of the whole year (December 29 through January 12) with an average high/low of 53/33.

At least it's sunny, though.

Looking out the kitchen door at our deck at 10:43 tonight. We'll see how it is in the morning for comparison purposes. (The couple of little depressions in the snow between the table near the door and the bigger table are almost certainly where the feral cat we call Fraidy would have walked when she left after coming for food. We were at the hockey game, but we left her bowl under the small table near the door because we knew she'd come begging and there's a good chance she won't be able to get up to our deck for a couple of days if we get a lot of snow.)

One of the forecasts around here called for 8-12 inches one day and 5-8 the next, so those may well be inches.  That said, the local meteorologist said it's too early to declare snowfall totals, so we'll see.

After a few days of cloudy weather with dense fog advisories at night, we're supposed to have a squall line of thunderstorms move through this evening. There's a marginal/slight risk of severe storms today for wind and tornadoes. Tornado watch is already in effect to the west in Alabama. We'll see what happens; it's looking to be the most exciting weather we've had in a long time.

That could continue to be mildly interesting into tomorrow morning. Though the rain's all falling today while it's warm (50s/60s), cold air will rush in overnight tonight resulting in a morning low temperature at or near freezing. Might see some slippery roads, particularly on the north side.

Tomorrow will probably be a day for me to just stay inside, with temperatures not making it out of the 30s along with a 20-25 mph northwest wind.

22 degrees, windy, and still snowing. Hasn't stopped snowing since my post early today, and looks like it will continue to snow for several more hours with a chance of extra lake effect tomorrow. Hard to estimate the current total due to all the drifting, but it's easily over 6 inches, with some drifts over a foot.

All 4 of the counties my hometown touches have declared level 3 snow emergencies, which means the roads are closed to non-emergency personnel.

As expected, we're holding in the mid-30s under mostly cloudy skies. I saw a few snow flurries about 20-30 minutes ago (and I do mean a few, as in countable on one hand).

Not gonna be seeing anything remotely close to those Virginia/Delaware numbers above, but we will drop well into the 20s tonight with windchills in the teens by morning. I think there will be colder air to come before the end of winter; my rule of thumb is that the temperature has to reach 17 degrees at least once every year, and that hasn't happened yet.

I'll amend my previous post with the text of the current winter storm warning that central Iowa is under.

Code: [Select]
...A Wintry Mix and Wind into Wednesday Morning...
 
.A winter storm system will bring a mixture of freezing drizzle,
freezing rain, snow, and stronger winds to the state today and
tonight. A more widespread moderate snow along with ice is
expected. The ice will be more prevalent over southern areas this
morning with lighter amounts north with snow mainly over the north
through mid afternoon. Later in the afternoon and tonight another
period of moderate snow is expected to set up farther south into
central and eastern Iowa. The combination of ice, snow and winds
increasing this evening will create hazardous travel over much of
the area by later today and tonight.
 
...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM CST
WEDNESDAY...
 
* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation. Snow accumulations of 4 to 6
inches and ice accumulations of one tenth to two tenths of an
inch.
 
* WHERE...Portions of Central Iowa.
 
* WHEN...Until 6 AM CST Wednesday.
 
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. Patchy
blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The
hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening
commute.

40 and raining. It's a wet sloppy mess made worse by all this snow from the weekend storm trying to melt off.

Though with the temp forecasted to drop back below freezing tonight and stay that way for over a week, it kinda feels like a race to see how much of this can be melted off before whatever is left freezes solid.

I'd probably agree, actually. As long as I can see the sun, I'm generally fine with it being cold. I've absolutely hated this winter not because it's cold, but because it seems like it's constantly raining and/or cloudy.

Right now, though, it's sunny and 42. Colder than average for Atlanta, but I give it a thumbs up.

We'll see what happens; it's still unclear whether most of the precipitation will fall before or after the colder air arrives. If it turns out to be before, it'll just be yet another day of cold rain.

As always with these things, I assume the worst case scenario, i.e. mostly freezing rain and sleet. Most of the time, that's what it ends up being (which results in the usual "LOL Atlanta can't handle one inch of snow"; yeah, neither could y'all if there were a quarter-inch of ice under it).

Winter storm? HA!

2 inches of snow in an area unprepared to handle it can lead to conditions necessitating a "storm watch". It's basically just saying "hey, it's gonna snow...you know you can't drive in it, so don't go out".

People make fun of Seattle for our inability to handle snow, at least partly due to snow being so rare, as to be impossible to understand how to handle it when driving. But Seattle is covered in hills; driving anywhere without elevation changes is pretty rare. Streets like this are fairly common: http://bit.ly/2sN5nr8



Partially-related: several chances for snow in the Seattle area during the next week and a bit. Day-time temps in the 30s and low 40s, but lows overnight into the twenties, with the chance for precipitation highest during those hours. Clear skies during the evening hours will allow the temps to drop below freezing before precipitation arrives.

Good question. Looks like the mounting hardware fell off. I've heard of backplates getting whacked by trucks, but that wouldn't make sense with the PBL running right next to the signals.

There's a chance of snow here where I am in northwestern Georgia on Tuesday.

I echo the posts that say just a little bit of snow could close a lot in a city or region that is not as prepared for handling it as other areas - this includes where I live. Snow and ice, no matter how much, will more often than not close schools over here.

While Seattle is pretty far north, it is known more for rain than snow - I believe this is because it lies within the biome of "Temperate Rainforest," if I recall correctly. Hell, even the southeastern reaches of Alaska may fall within the outer boundaries of the wider range of this biome (Marine West Coast) along the western coast of North America - according to what I have learned in my Physical Geography class that I am taking this semester in college, just this past week.

Many places around the country can handle snow (and lots of it) like a boss, but not everyone gets as much snow where it is worth being just as prepared.  :-P

We probably do, but we are still relatively unprepared when compared to places in the Northeast or Midwest. IIRC, we only have one snow-plow in our city (Dalton, though it has a population of over 30,000 people). There are ridges and valleys around us, larger mountains to our east (i.e. past Chatsworth), and the tops of those mountains definitely get more snow than down below. An inch or more of snow here is guaranteed to close all the schools, and in general we're just not accustomed to snow like people farther up north are.

You're on the right track. Western Washington is a warm-summer Mediterranean climate (Csb), with the Olympic Peninsula's rain forest and bits of northwest Washington (excluding BC's Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island) falling into the Oceanic climate (Cfb in this case). I think most of Western Washington is too dry for oceanic, or something like that.

In either case, snow isn't a major feature; it really only happens when we get an arctic blast from BC (via the Fraser River Watershed, IIRC). We can get huge amounts of snow, but it has to be a "perfect storm", so to speak.

Update: that watch has now been upgraded to a winter weather advisory. We're going into full snowstorm mode for this: Georgia Tech and State, most K-12 districts, and all state/city offices in the Atlanta area will be closed tomorrow.

For those keeping score, the current forecast for Atlanta is 0-1 inches; Cobb County and some of the northwestern suburbs will likely see more.

Imagine a landscape, where there is no precipitation falling from the sky, but snow is still getting onto the roadways leading to people getting stuck or into accidents.

That's what I experienced all day on January 20th along I-55 and I counted 15 vehicles in the ditches along that 8-hour drive, even though nothing was falling from the sky!  Blowing snow can be a really irritating problem.  It's especially bad because it's an overlooked problem.  Check road conditions even if it isn't snowing!

Sure enough, it indeed did not snow yesterday. Not even close. Even most of the rainfall had dried up by the end of the day under sunny skies.

It was cold this morning, but not egregiously so (mid-20s). Sunny and 39 now as we begin a warming trend that'll have us well into the 60s by this time next week.

This is day 2 of the big meltdown, and it's going to be in the 50's again tomorrow, so we should finally get rid of the remaining snow piles from the storm we had back on Jan 19. This is the 3rd time it's been above freezing since that snow fell, but the first 2 times it got really cold a day later and turned everything to ice (with a few inch or less snows thrown in on top of it as well)

Seattle is absolutely falling apart. They were predicting a few inches at most, even in the snowiest places. Places up north and in the Cascade Foothills ended up with 7-10+ inches.

I woke up at 0700 with about 2.5", but I'm up to about 4" now, maybe more. Most schools cancelled. UW-Tacoma was open until an hour ago, before they came to their senses and realized that it's a commuter campus.

Temperature at 0900 is 24F, which is very low for us at this time of day. Will not get above freezing anywhere in the Seattle metro today. Places like Vancouver (BC) are just frozen solid.

I'd mock Seattle for not having their shit together, but then again that amount of snow really sucks when it's hilly. Not being prepared for it only makes that worse.

Here, on the other hand, most of the snow has melted. Once the polar vortex receded the temperatures soared into the 40s, and now it's practically all gone. All that's left in my yard are the mountains from shoveling and the windrow from plowing along the street.

The Washington State Patrol informed us this morning that we were, in fact, not prepared for this storm. Well, no shit! We never get any practice. Never mind the hills. It's just almost impossible in some places, even for those with the right vehicle, and the right skills. Funny thing is, I'm sure there were more than a few crashes caused by people out trying to learn how to drive in the snow. I feel bad for them, but at least they're out there trying to conquer the dreaded white bastard.

It's now just after 1300 PST, and the temperature is still 24F. Which is just really, really unusual. It's not midwest cold, but for us to be below freezing all day is just not normal at all. Tonight should be down into the low teens. Tomorrow morning's roads might be worse than today.

Which aspect of the weather? The snow or the cold? I would say there's at least one day of snow per year in Seattle that cancels most schools, and leaves the freeways empty.

The whole "not getting above freezing" thing is definitely not a yearly occurrence, at least as far as I can recall. Winter low temps in Seattle get below freezing all the time, but high temps are always at least low-to-mid 30s. What's a bit more common is sub-freezing high temps in the northern counties.

A crazy day around here with a couple feet of snow at lake level at Lake Tahoe and more over the mountain passes.  It looks like I-80 will be completely closed over the Sierra for as much as 24 hours.  US 50 gets closures of several hours for avalanche control, and CA 88 can get avalanche closures lasting a couple days, so there's no practical route between Tahoe and the Sacramento Valley.  I guess if somebody were willing to endure a slow slog, US 395 north from Reno to CA 70 at Hallelujah Junction, and then CA 70 through Quincy and the Feather River Canyon over to Oroville would get you there at a cost of many extra hours.

Here, on the other hand, most of the snow has melted. Once the polar vortex receded the temperatures soared into the 40s, and now it's practically all gone. All that's left in my yard are the mountains from shoveling and the windrow from plowing along the street.

The mixture of fast-settling ice, the hills/terrain, and swings in temperature all contribute to some very difficult snow days. There's some major arterial streets that swing down 8% grades and have to be closed to traffic (but that doesn't stop idiots from trying).

I'm just outside the affected area for that storm. The county to my east (Jasper) is under a winter weather advisory for snow and minor ice accumulation, but the one I'm in (Polk) is not. Still supposed to get some snow/wintry mix today and tonight, though.

We've got some unusual warmth here in Dover.  We're expecting a high of 60, low of 34.

61 here, beating the previous record of 59.

Uncomfortably warm

This could mean one of three things, and I'm not sure which.

1. It's just hyperbole.
2. Not uncomfortable to humans, but uncomfortable to the environment.
3. You're not in Massachusetts right now; you're on a vacation trip.

I guess our Washington's weather swapped with your Washington.

Record cold of 20F most of the day. Despite the sunshine, there's plenty of snow (and, more importantly, deadly ice) on the ground.

Doesn't look like this ice storm ever materialized, though I did hear rain around 9 pm or so.  Most of the snow we got in recent weeks is melted now, which is nice.

Northern and western burbs got clobbered. Chicago luckily warmed up enough for just a cold rain

Ah, I work in far southern Lake County (on Lake-Cook Road, actually) and everything was fine up here.

Yeah there was a report out of McHenry of almost a half inch of ice. Waukegan had about .25

No guarantees you'll see what I'm seeing now, but...
