"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.

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.

I'm definitely staying off there from now on lol. None of them base their "forecasts" on facts....just what they want. Every snow lover wants 2 ft of snow with every storm, but how practical is it? It's not at all lol. I'll stick to wunderground :)

TheRasberryPatch-Thanks. No way is this the last gasp of winter. March is going to be cold and snowy, at least that is what it seems and is being forecast.

I will post an entry, before 4pm, on the winds and cold, with the upcoming heavy snow squalls. Tomorrow I will post a completely new blog with a look at the long term.

Very good job forecasting Blizz. So whats next? I see the NWS has a wind advisory for tomorrow. Sounds like what we had last week. Is this winter's last gasp?

It is just above freezing here with light snow and about 1/2" here. It seems from the radar all morning I am on the eastern edge of the snow. It is coming down a bit heavier at the moment. The roads and pavements are just wet. Grass and others are snow covered. no wind at all to speak.

TheRasberryPatch- You are correct. It has not been that it has been a warm winter. It is just the jet stream has not favored us for snowstorms.

You guys keep mentioning the big east coast storms. Well, first I think the jet stream needs to be repositioned. In the past you could always watch the jet stream and if storms passed to the west of us, it was just a matter of time before the jet stream moved to the east of us and if a storm came along we got hit. but I haven't really seen much of that type of jet stream. i could be wrong since i am just an amateur. but that is what i look for in the winter weather. the jet stream since to play a huge part in getting out big storms.

Hi stormfront, i seen that on the models as well, but that's WAY too far out to get excited about....sigh....i think Margusity is right, we'll see our BIG storms in April!.....I personally think we'll see the big east coast storms from Late February through mid March.....

Nice work Blizz. Looks like an interesting week coming up. I saw that Alaska had some very very very cold temperatures today. I saw -45F for Fairbanks and I think 9F in Anchorage. Are there any steering mechanisms to bring that to the continental US? I saw those temps and thought that is COLD and that I wouldn't want to be there.

Hey Blizz. I have a Lacrosse 2310 weather station. Everything had been working OK. Suddenly my rain gauge is not working. I took it apart today and found a rusty staple on the magnet that must some count the dipping mechanism. BUT, it still isnt working. Any ideas? Everything else looks OK. I hope I dont have one of those you get what you paid for deals!

Hi Blizzard, looking forward to your update this afternoon....i see the GFS continues a very stormy pattern right through late month! Boy, what a storm last night here in eastern pa! Had a good summertime like thunderstorm with .70 inches of rain in 20 minutes! Lots of lightning and then the stars came out, then round two....I had recorded 2.12 inches of rain since Tuesday morning. Quite a storm! Again i just want to say my heart goes out to all the families of those who lost their lives in the tornado outbreak.

I do see many snow chances as early as this weekend with the artic front. Then another chance on the 13th, and the longer range has a few good ones as well.....so i'm not ready to pack it in just yet,.....i was just in a mood when i wrote my doom and gloom snow chances blog...lol....but i'm back!

I'll be looking for your update later at work....i check it on my iphone through a wi-fi connection...lol....later...

Hey Blizz, I have one for you. Back around 1983, I was living in Towson, MD. We got a freak snowstorm in February. And the reason I say freak is because before the storm hit the temps were rather warm. It was a nor'easter that dumped around 24" of the white stuff. We had thunder snow during the day. It was quite a scene. It occured on a Friday as i recall. The other part about it being freak is the next day, Saturday, the temps got close to 60F. Just wondering the mechanics involved in something like that. That has to be pretty freaky. would you think that it is a once every 100 years or so? That is something I would expect in Colorado in October.

No damage here. For a minute or two that rain came down very heavy. When I looked at the radar I saw some purple right over my area. The strongest gust of wind was 27 mph during the storm. I would say that the sustained winds during the storm was close to 20 mph. After the storm we had a gust of 36 mph (about 15 mins after the storm). I liked that the NWS gave us an 800# to call during the severe storm for any wind damage or hail. I don't recall seeing that before, but maybe i never paid attention.

Do you think the storms will hold their power all the way to Lancaster?

eaglesrock- Good evening. Tomorrow after the severe weather I will begin to talk about snow chances. I see a pretty good chance of a possible winter storm for the 13th.

It is amazing that we can have freezing rain in Bradford with severe thunderstorms in the central and southern parts of Pennsylvania.

Snowlover2010- Well it is looking interesting to say the least. I actually like the 12z GFS run for the clipper. We may be talking about some light accumulations. Stay tuned. Right now I am monitoring possible severe weather. Watch out there in Lancaster. Keep checking my blog for more updates!

TheRasberryPatch- Strange temperatures today. Umm... Also convection is forming in Ohio and will move westward into our region by nightfall. I think the potential for severe thunderstorms will occur for our area after sunset.

Winterstormsblog- Good luck with the snow!

lawntonlookers- Thankyou, I will take into consideration your date idea. I usually update the short term, afternoon thoughts, and regional forecast daily. And I add to the long term when necessary. Also I am watching the Susquehanna River levels too.


For today I will be monitoring the severe weather situation with many updates coming throughout this afternoon and evening. So stay tuned!!!
