"Afternoon thoughts"
Good afternoon! Wow, what a day. Here in north of Harrisburg we had one of the worst snow squalls I have ever seen. We recieved 1inch of powdery snow in 20minutes. Temperatures dropped in the snow from 36degrees to 22degrees. Now roads are ice/snow covered. I just finished shoveling the driveway and sidewalk. Winds hit a max of 33mph gust from my Davis Vantage Pro2. The squall affected many people across the state. There are many accidents and currently I know of I-81 at a standstill in the Harrisburg region. Below are a list of storm reports across the state. Also I have pictures below of the snow squall that went through my home. They are in chronological order. Starting with before the squall. Then during the squall. Then after the squall.

Tonight winds will gust up to 45mph and there will be areas of blowing and drifting snow. A few lake effect snow showers may also give C-1inch accumulations in typical snow belts. The combined low temperatures of below zero to single digits will make wind chills dangerous and in the the -5 - -20degree range. Becareful if you have travel plans outdoors.

I could not post a new blog for this week due to the busy weather today so I am going to stick with this blog for the rest of the week. I am going to update the long term section tomorrow and short term sections. Have a great day!!!

"Just to throw out there"

Also about global warming. Real quick, because I do not like to get too indepth about talking about global warming. Scientists from the Space and Science Research Center and NASA found that there is a distinctive corelation between the Sun's sunspot cycles and the cooling of the planets. If this all holds true by 2020 the sun will enter its weakest sun spot stage ever, which could lead to a dramatic drop in average temperatures worldwide. For more information on this, check it out under Accuweather's Bret Anderson climate blog for the 25th of June, 2007. It is really interesting!

Weekly Weather Reviews
For this week I wrote a review on two of my favorite weather books. One is on records and extreme weather and the other is a fantastic books on the history of climate and weather for the entire state of Pennsylvania. Check these books out sometime, because they are wonderful books full of useful information!

Ok, this is something new I am going to try to write. This section will be dedicated to weather stations, weather technology, weather books, weather websites, weather magazines, etc. reviews that I write. I am going to try to write a review once a week on Sunday about some of the above topics. Also I am going to rate each item out of 5 stars. (*****)

Also if anyone else has a topic idea or something to add about my review you can leave it in a comment. Hopefully this will give you some knowledge about all of the fascinating weather accessories that are out there. And maybe you can try some out yourself.

Book- Extreme Weather (A Guide and Record Book) Revised and Updated written by Christopher C. Burt. (*****)
This book is a great books for the avid weather watcher or a true meteorologist/climatologist. This book is an update version of the similar book that came out a few years ago. This book has some wonderful features/chapters along with beautiful weather pictures. The list of chapters are...Heat&Drought, Cold, Snow&Ice, Rain&Floods, Thunderstorms&Hail, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Windstorms&Fog. Also in the back of the book is a section for each state and precipitation/temperature records for major cities in the state. Also listed are state records too. This is the perfect book for finding all and any possible records for all types of weather. Along with it are wonderful maps and diagrams which make it all easier to understand. In each chapter are detailed descripitions of that type of weather along with records for that category of weather. Also in each chapter are interesting blurbs on strange weather occurences such as snowflakes as large as 5.5inches across and tornadoes that went right through the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Make sure to check out this books and even buy a copy. For 304pages of fantastic weather information for $25.95 is well worth the price.

Book- The Pennsylvania Weather Book written by Ben Gelber. (*****)
Well I am going to admit this is my favorite book ever. For anyone weather lover in Pennsylvania this book is a must have. The chapters are on... PA landscape and climate, PA history of climates, PA famous weather-watchers, Great Winter Storms, Cold Waves, Heat Waves, Thunderstorms and Damaging Winds, Tornadoes and Whirlwinds, Floods and Droughts, Tropical Storms and Hurricanes, Other Natural Events. In the appendix there are also a list of PA weather extremes and selected city climate information. In each chapter there is a small informative section on how the category of weather works and how it reacts to Pennsylvania's diverse geography. Then it gets into each infamous weather event dating back to the Revolutionary War up until 2002. This book has now been out for a few years. This books has wonderful descripitions of famous storms and even storms that will surprise you after hearing how strong they were. I must have read this book 10times and before each season, such as winterstorms, severestorms, etc I read the chapter to inform myself on record-breaking weather events. Anyone living in Pennsylvania with a fascination with the weather should definitely buy it for the store price of $34.00. It is 270pages long with the author being a meteorologist and he majored in Geography of Pennsylvania.

Completely new blog is coming for the storm approaching. It should be done by this evening.

TheRasberryPatch- You are welcome in my blog any time and I look forward to reading your comments and opinions.

PalmyraPunishment- Accuweather forums are a joke. The road crews here are relatively poor too, especially when it comes to snow plowing. Salting they seem to go overboard.

I-83 was a veritable bobsled track last night around 5:30, and amazingly enough... a lot of roads (PA 743 - Grantville) is the same this morning.

I also would like to make a public statement of disgust towards Palmyra Borough, and the crackerjackoff job they do of road maintenance. I'll do this now, because tomorrow the roads will be crap... and they won't even be touched until the storm has either run it's course, or switched over to rain. I've never seen anything so frustrating in all my lifes.

What a brutal morning. Cold and windy still. It's amazing you guys have never seen that type of squall before. I recall about 4 years ago in December near Christmas getting one of those. I was going to a concert that evening at the Whitaker Center and two hours after the squall hit PennDot still had 83 as icy as ever. I have seen those squalls take driving down to a crawl. I once sat in a trailer watching over a construction site and it was next to a hilly road. After the squall the cars with front wheel drive made it up the hill. The cars with rear wheel drive - no chance. It was kind of comical.
I just started blogging here in Blizz's blog a couple of weeks ago. Last winter I did some of my own, but just about the conditions outside. It is fun to communcate with people in here. I have never visited those other weather sites. I have always been a watcher of the weather and when I got my instruments I couldn't wait to send it to the internet. It took a couple of years because I didn't have any ability to send with just dialup. No dsl in my area at the time. But it is good to be here. Love everyone's comments. I hope you don't mind me going on about my stuff.

Morning gang,

Nice to see Winter return with a limited amount of fury -- nice inch of snow saturday morning, the cold, in Carlisle we didn't get the snow squall yesterday but the winds were terrible, and now we have a Winter Storm Warning up with forecasts for light snow and possible significant icing... Although, just 50 miles to our west in Huntingdon County, they're expecting 2-4 inches of snow.

I wouldn't be suprised to see 2-3 inches of snow, and some ice tomorrow... it's "forecasted" to be in the low 30s, but lately we haven't been reaching our forecasted high, so I wouldn't be suprised to see more snow than C-1 inch.

Also, my take on the Accuweather forums. They're a joke. I've been 'reprimanded' twice by Jesse Farrell for posting in a manner that may be "detrimental" to other posters. Basically he told me to relax on calling out the wishcasters, however every time I post on there, telling it like it be, I get 10 or so people saying they agree, but 2 or 3 who get butthurt because they're a "Junior Meteorologist" (pretentious fanboy) and they know more than me. I admit it, i don't know much -- but I also don't post on Accuweather's forums, starting each post by saying "Hi, this is Junior Meteorologist blah blah blah". These people frustrate me...

So, it's Wunderground for the win!

Hi Blizzard, WOW, what a day indeed!!!! I was on my way to a birthday party for my daughter around 2:30pm when it sounded like a train coming when i was pumping gas and i was outside when that intense squall hit! It was like something out of a movie, the trees bent and the visibility went from sunny to an all out white-out hell, it was the hardest squall i ever seen in my 45 years on earth! Quite a 10 minute experience. 15 minutes later, the sun was back out like it never happened! It was 36 when it rolled in and 20 minutes later, it was 23 degrees! I told my wife, it's like a summertime severe thunderstorm without the lightning and thunder....exept during the height of that squall, i could swear i seen a bolt of lightning off to my left when i was sitting it out in my SUV.....

I'm getting excited about the midweek snow chances here as well, plus next weekend! WOW, lots going on....i was ready to hang it all up a week ago i you remember...lol...ttysoon...

I wasn't around here this afternoon. I was in maryland, but I see @ 155pm we had a wind gust of 47mph. that is a pretty big gust. there is a dusting on the ground. i couldn't tell you when it snowed and thankfully it didn't ice up here. I didn't see any snow on the ground coming up 272 from the conowingo dam until i got close to home on rt 743 and schoolhouse rd.
Blizz, I have seen the squall you got about 5 times in my lifetime. it is so amazing. and the way it just turns the roads into an ice skating rink.
If anyone has gone over the Conowingo, you should have seen the water this afternoon. They were letting water go through some gates and the rapids it created down below was a sight, not to mention the spray coming up. on my way home there was still spray coming onto the road and it turned the road over the dam to ice. i passed one minor accident on the dam because of the spray turning the road to ice.

Thanks guys, it does get quite hectic there sometimes. Anyway this next storm is looking interesting. Personally, I don't think most of us will see more than a 1-3" event changing to rain but that would still be nice.
Also, how was the accumulation in your next of the woods jthal?

Blizz, well my MINI DADDY lasted for almost an hour. We got almost 3 inches. It is almost impossible to measure due to the blowing and drifting. My place is in a bit of a valley so the wind doesnt alwalys get down here. But I can hear it roaring in the trees around me. Good pictures. Did you catch my note on Henrys video he posted, real good footage.

Blizz, my temperature has gone up to almost 40. The dewpoint is 25. That pre frontal trough this morning seemed to explode right as it got here. Now the front seems to be doing the same thing. Winds have gotten very gusty now. There seems to be alot of low level moisture here. I think its going to get interesting.

temps still hovering in the upper 30's throughout the morning. if that squall line comes through with a quick burst of heavy snow, look out. the roads will be horrendous and we know how penndot works. it won't be worth going out.

TheRasberryPatch- Yea I had a thunderstorm too associated with the warm front. Temperatures sure have been strange.

jthal57- I got a coating of snow, could be more to come this morning.

charlesimages- Front hasn't gone through here yet.

We had a flash freeze here last night. Everything was wet from the rain and then quickly froze as temperatures went below freezing. Roads are completely ice covered.

Good morning. Looking at the radar it appears there isn't much to the front line. It looks like we had a brief shower not too long ago. After the paper was delivered. Around 6am. Looking at the temperatures for the overnight, the graph looks like a heart monitor. Don't think I have seen that very often. it went up and down 3 times from 730pm last night to 7 am this morning.

Snowlover2010- Hard to say because snow squalls are very unpredictable. But I would say you have the chance to see C-2inches.

Well I just had something very strange happen. Here north of harrisburg it is 34degrees with light sleet. But just a minute ago there was lightning and thunder. Very strange. One thing this might mean is there is high cape which could lead to thundersnows tomorrow.

mdfirefighter-I agree with you 100 percent on the accuforums. I haven't been on in weeks. Stay here with good guys like blizzard, and we'll talk some serious weather and report the conditions!!

Blizzard- what are the chances of squalls working their way towards eastern PA tomorrow?

TheRasberryPatch- Even the NWS says a chance for locally heavy snow here. Last year, when Harrisburg saw their first snow at the end of January an intense squall moved through and I got about 1inch of snow in 45minutes. The roads were horrible.

Hey Blizz if you are right about the squalls then the roads will get quite slick. I recall these types of squalls every few years. The temperature drop and the quick burst of snow (usually a couple of mins of 0 visibility) turns the roads to an ice skating rink. Very dangerous. And usually PennDot is a few hours behind. From my experience the temps are hovering just above 32F and the snow hits and the temps drop to the upper 20's in secs and as soon as the snow hits the ground it turns to ice.
