Quoting TheRasberryPatch:


What is the word on the storm for Friday evening into Saturday? You had mentioned possible snow north of I80. I see they have a high of 43F for Saturday for LSV.

Hopefully, the freeze will help kill some ticks. There was a report this morning that because of the mild winter the tick population will be higher this Spring
We already had our dog bring in some tics during the warm spell. Hope a freeze does help.

Looks like another freeze this evening for areas where vegetation is well ahead of schedule. Don't forget to cover any crops this evening.

Quoting originalLT:
The line of showers has come and gone, putting down less than 0.10" of rain. A sharp clearing line is coming in and the sun is coming out. We did have about one half dozen rumbles of thunder as the line came thru. LT Stamford CT.


Ended up with a TShower in the end. Some nice moderate rain, no wind, a strike within a mile and two more within 3. Rest were distant rumbles from adjacent cells echoing up and down the river basin.

Odd day as it dropped to 45 after the short breezy clearing line came in....then popped to 67 an hour later.

A number of quick wild temperature swings since then in this region.

56F(when sunny) and 48F(when cloudy and breezy).

Hello all -

Thought I should pass this along to those of you who garden / farm. Of interest to us all really since, if we eat food, we rely on bees to some extent...

Colony Collapse Disorder - Pesticide Link

Here's a perfect crossroads situation - do we immediately place a moratorium on the pesticide's use and observe whether bee populations rebound OR do we pander to industry - conduct endless studies that will never be considered valid by industry anyways resulting in pretty much complete die-off of the species... then turn around a few years later and say - oh it does appear it was the pesticide killing the bees.

I hope it's the former but would bet on the latter scenario, unfortunately...

Hi Gaara, yes I did see one small but strong cell travel generally from W to E north of me across a good bit of Western and Central CT. maybe it was that one that put down the hail.

A coworker heard something about small hail in Oxford from that storm. We had three flashes of lightning here in Stratford.

I'm happy you got some snow while in the northern half of the northeast! :-)
Thanks, Listener! I've really enjoyed visiting up here in your neck of the woods. Just love the quiet and the natural beauty all around. We'll be driving through your sweet state tomorrow; and then home!

We're in Lincoln, New Hampshire in the White Mountains and it is snowing on and off. It's just a little, but while it's snowing it's pretty intense with the wind and all the trees. Many of the waterfalls are partially frozen and truly beautiful. I took some good photos of a snowy white forest; just have to figure out how to upload them from my phone.

Hi everyone.

Nice thunderstorm rolling in. 49F.

Hit lower 20s all around the other night. Time spent below freezing was probably short lived. 6-8 hours. Sharp fall and then rise of the mercury.

We had some distant lightning several nights ago. It never made it across the Hudson.

For Philadelphia anyway (didn’t look into your area), the last 7-day period within 1.0F of average was 02/08 - 02/14 at +0.1F.

The last 7-day period equal to 0.0F was 01/16 - 01/22 at 0.0F.

The last 7-day period less than or equal to -0.1F was 11/01 - 11/07 at -2.4F.

Combined with recent actual temps and forecast temps over the next week, the coolest 7-day period starting with 03/25 through 04/03 should be 03/25 – 03/31 coming in at around +2.8F.

The forecast for the next 7 days (03/28 – 04/03) would come in at +5.8F.


Wow it's been that long since philly has been near average?! I was more speaking generally, but I'm not sure if we barely broke 50 the past couple days. Except today, it should be right around the 50 mark until sunday. I was only using weather.com's averages.

Philly,
Sounds like a real winter scene up there,hard to believe it was in the 70's and 80's last week.
Maine is getting more than us; 3-5 inches expected there. We'll be lucky to get an inch, but it's quite pretty and I'll take what I can get! The temp swings are very odd - people were swimming in the river when we got here and now we're all bundled up!

Anybody been tracking that possible weekend snow threat for parts of the Northeast? Looks like a few models are suggesting a swatch of snow along and north of I-80.


As long as it is north of LSV that is fine with me. I just hope it doesn't ruin another weekend

Looks like an average week temp wise. When was the last time we had one of those?


For Philadelphia anyway (didn’t look into your area), the last 7-day period within 1.0F of average was 02/08 - 02/14 at +0.1F.

The last 7-day period equal to 0.0F was 01/16 - 01/22 at 0.0F.

The last 7-day period less than or equal to -0.1F was 11/01 - 11/07 at -2.4F.

Combined with recent actual temps and forecast temps over the next week, the coolest 7-day period starting with 03/25 through 04/03 should be 03/25 – 03/31 coming in at around +2.8F.

It was nice to get below freezing this morning. Hopefully, it killed a lot of weeds. The weeds have been getting started early. I talked to a Landscaper and he said everything is about 10-14 days early
