Wxgeek peeked my attention. Now this past week, TS Joyce was named, had max sustained winds of 40mph for perhaps 8 or 12 hours if we are lucky and has since been downgraded to a post-tropical system.

Ugh, it ten times crazier hard up here than last semester. A fun mix of Calc III and physics this semester. My meteo class is an instrumental and observation class looking at METAR and synoptic code along with a long section on RADAR. The fun class is Oceanography. A more relaxed 16.5 credits though compared to last semester despite 3 labs this time around, meh.


Wow! e-way are not orthy-way!
Thanks for coming by whenever you can.

I feel like we are helping in some small way to grow a new meteorologist. :-)

Hi CTW! Always good to get back to it.

I haven't been on the blog for several weeks, and today when I went onto Wunderground I couldn't find it! Had a few moments of panic there - who would I "talk with" about the snow? Funny, isn't it?

Not a drop of rain here. I did just notice that Henry Margusity is wishcasting Ike as a Category 4 drilling New Orleans. Something's not right with that dude.

Oh and I should probably say hi to everybody. It's been, oh I don't know, 5 months? Life comes at you fast and when the winds of change blow through they often enough don't let you correspond with online communities as much. Just thought I would take a few moments and say hi and hope everybody in this community is doing well. You'll note the new userid, I moved so my former userid (palmyrapunishment) is no longer applicable.

It's still me, however, coming to you live from "beautiful" Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Let's see how weird things get with these storms in the Atlantic.

wxgeek723- I agree 100%. It is no wonder there has been an increase in named tropical activity over the last decade. And here is to wonder how many storms have been missed over the years especially before the excellent satellite positioning network.

Looks like a good amount of rain fell again across the Lower Susquehanna Valley; interesting how much heavy rain has been falling across the east compared to the rest of the country which is almost all in a drought.


It rained very hard for about 30 mins (approx. 0.70"/hour). In the 2 hours of rain I got 0.46". Another summer of wet conditions. Except for the 4 weeks in June to early July it has been wet. I just hope the cooler evening/morning temps keep the mosquito population down.

wxgeek - I understand what you are saying. It could be possible. You never know with government agencies these days.

I know we like to evade this topic a lot on Blizz's blog because it is the root of all evil on WU, but I can't present this idea to the contributors on Master's blog because they'll bite my head off. Plus I like you guys better, haha.

Has anyone noticed the NHC has become extremely liberal with naming storms in the Atlantic? It seems like they name several storms without a good case for doing so. Just a few days ago with Helene. I mean, I don't even think it was a storm for 24 hours, and the satellite presentation was awful. Was there really any need to give an 18 hour storm a name? I'll admit that this bizarre season has had some pretty legitimate storms, but last year had a whole handful of questionable storms. There's also a few in 2010 that were really a waste of time. One or two a season is perfectly fine, but now the NHC almost seems to be rushing to bring attention to things that don't really need it.

I guess they are the experts, and even weak storms are storms too, but I've noticed this happening all too frequently and it bothers me because 1) I feel like storms don't get the name they deserve (yes I'm weird like that LOL) and 2) it inflates the season's statistics and portrays it as very active when it really wasn't. Records are broken when they may actually still be standing, and the media can manipulate data and make this season thus far sound 'bad'. At least they can't really pump up the ACE, that's about the only reliable stat nowadays.

It really discourages me to see them do this because I think a name is special. Tropical cyclones are unique because we name them and not just any blob deserves a name attached to it. Speaking of inflation, what is the value of a name if just about anything in the Atlantic that looks like a surface circulation can get one? I do hear rumors that the NHC only does it now to keep their budget from taking a hit or something; who knows, but I do not like it.


Okay end rant, resume chat on local weather.

Not really a thunderstorm. It's just heavy rain. I am just south of him and the line is moving through my area.

For awhile I didn't think we were going to get any rain today. It looked like the rain was along the coast. We barely had any sun today.

It's cool Zach. You're busy and the weather is not.


Meanwhile talk about a complete forecast BUST. Went from high chance of numerous widespread all-day rain event to... well, it's sunny now with the radar scope empty (we consider heavy rain offshore and moving further offshore as an EMPTY scope down here).

Worse...and way worse...is a return of mid-UPPER 80s yet again in the forecast towards the end of the week.

Even worse? Long term CPC outlooks? Come'on already. ENOUGH. Above normal 6-10 and 8-14 day outlooks for us... and WELL ABOVE NORMAL for the new SEP-OCT-NOV outlook.

Now I'm not looking for a blizzard filled winter or one of those miserable ice cold fall seasons.

But enough already... I don't need to be seeing things that tell me I will be sitting here in 8 weeks with identical weather that I have today.

No thank you. GO AWAY.



....If you look upstream in Canada, there is the occasional front with cool air dipping into central Canada over the next 10 days, but pay attention to western Canada in any model runs: The heat builds quickly back into place with 80s right up into the YUKON!!!

That's a horrible sign right there for those of us that were hoping for a REAL taste of fall...you know...during fall?

This sucks. No other way to put it.


It's still August. I won't mind 80's for another few weeks. I enjoy the summer lasting into and past Labor Day. I grew up going to the beach for Labor Day weekend. The water is usually perfect and the fishing isn't bad either.

Come mid-September I will be ready for the cool evenings and 70's, but I am sure we will still see 80's. Just as long as we aren't wearing coats in September.

Don't get me wrong...Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. Just such great memories with fall sports and the weather and friends. It seems people get out more and there is more activities and the Fall Festivals. Not to mention it is a great time to be golfing. Usually the courses don't have as many people and they are in great shape.

Folks, at 8AM ET, it is as warm in the NorthWest Territories of Canada (East of the Yukon) as it is in NY/NJ at this hour.

That's not good for us...at all.

HUHsayWHAT?!

Right at this moment the radar on WU shows a big patch of precip headed my way, and for some reason it is all showing up RED on the radar map!!! Weather.com just shows it as ordinary green rain, and no one has warnings up. So what's with the red on the radar?! Is someone at WU central maybe colour blind? (Red and green are seen by some colour blind folks as identical.)

Either way, I guess I'd best get to sleep. Staff meeting first thing in the morning. But we had a gorgeous weekend with perfect weather: mostly sunny, mid-70's, humidity around 38%, gentle breezes. Amazing!

We took a trip through Vermont to the Weston Playhouse to see Fiddler on the Roof. Well done! But we also saw a lot of the areas that were hard hit a year ago when Irene hit. Some are still waiting to be repaired...!

Nice cold steady rain this morning has moved past.

65F and just plain perfect outside.

Sun on it's way shortly.


Still, would have been nice to get the cooler 70s for highs for the coming week but we have been bounced back to low to mid 80s. Soon enough I suppose.

Tinton Falls, NJ, Cloudy and 84F.

Sea breeze went through...a broken line of small cells forming within the sea breeze clutter on radar to my SW. Seems it will move up and through my area.

The line out in Pennsylvania looks awful. Northern NJ appears to have a shot at some decent thundershowers. Southern end of the line is just nothing.

Looks like high bust potential here.

Dry air is likely the culprit...we never did get humid as was forecast today.

We will see, LT. Seems to work that way many times.

Nice front in PA. Mid 60s behind, low-mid 90s ahead. 92F here currently and rising still. Doesn't feel very humid despite reports saying otherwise. Not sure what to make of that.

Frontal showers themselves aren't impressive but are slowly growing.

Pinpoint forecast calls for convection after 11PM to 2AM. Some discussion wording hints at NJ as being the place for stronger convection, if there is to be any at all..... they seem rather conservative at the moment.

I can see why.

Hi! Well in my opinion things are not looking to encouraging. Unless we get a sustained period of blocking this winter (possible) then the El Nino is going to torch the entire east coast. I am not sure where Accuweather even has enough evidence to produce such a forecast at this point.


So we will be in an El Nino this winter?

For tomorrow's outbreak. SPC has tempered enthusiasm.

DESPITE FAVORABLE VERTICAL SHEAR...CLOUD COVER/EARLY
PRECIPITATION AND RELATIVELY LESSER MOISTURE CONTENT CONTINUES TO
RESULT IN UNCERTAINTY FOR THE DEGREE OF DESTABILIZATION/EXTENT OF
ANY SEVERE THREAT. MARGINAL INSTABILITY WITH NEWD EXTENT FROM VA
INTO THE NORTHEAST STATES MAY SUPPORT AN ISOLATED SEVERE THREAT...
BUT OVERALL COVERAGE STILL DOES NOT WARRANT AN UPGRADE TO A
CATEGORICAL SLIGHT RISK.


...

We kind of need this to be a strong one if we're going to get that colder air to spill over the mountains to the coastal regions.

Seems like it's not going to happen. Highs now low to mid 80s in the forecast products for me after an optimistic upper 70s were posted as of yesterday for the same time period.

Did pretty good yesterday for the place that usually watches things slide by. Got the one good soaker, one brief touch by the earlier line, and later last night a second soaker coming in fizzled on the southern end and it passed just to our north. Overall it was over an inch to be sure.

Meanwhile our first real cold front of the season is upon us, but the forecast products language has gone back up to the low 80s for me here Sunday onward....so how good could this be?

Still, it's the first hint, let there be more, please.

Wow! I wonder if it's all going to be concentrated in the I95 corridor, and those of us up here in NW VT will miss out on the big snows, as sometimes happens. Seriously, the ski areas need it more than the city streets do! Maybe I've been doing my snow dance on the wrong side of the house.

I see Accuweather is already sounding the blizzard alarms, 5 months in advance. Nothing like freaking out the masses for no good reason.

Things have finally filled in over the county. Getting a good downpour and some solid C-G as advertised.

Had storms in the NE corner of the county back build in my direction then sag southward. For a few brief moments had the western most edge slide over us and had a quick downpour. Water flowing down the streets but dry under the trees. Some rumbles of thunder but nothing all that close.

Numerous outflow boundaries bouncing around the state. Pretty neat stuff.
