blocking pattern

By: NEwxguy, 5:45 PM GMT on September 27, 2012

09/28 Cool,rainy day for the northeast and although it won't be raining all the time,not much sun into next week,with periods of drizzle and fog,and also periods of heavier rain.Even next week looks iffy,as a blocking pattern digs its feet in.
We do need the rain,but lets get the rain and move it out.




So work is crazy,I manage to get here at lunch time.This working for a living stuff,is no fun.
Anyway,we have a beautiful fall day here,before some real cool damp weather moves in tomorrow and lasts through the weekend.The weekend won't be a complete washout,but not much sun and some rain at different times,and we will be lucky to see 60 degrees.

warmup

By: NEwxguy, 4:58 PM GMT on September 25, 2012

So we have a mini warmup today,beautiful day out there.Then another warm day tomorrow,but with showers scattered around,then a cold front tomorrow night,cool by nice Thursday and Friday,and a cool wet weekend,something we might see in early spring.
For all those football fans out there,I hear your screams.This is not football,its anarchy.On any given game,you never know what you get.Last night's bad call at the end cost a game.

Very fast 4 day weekend

By: NEwxguy, 1:47 PM GMT on September 24, 2012

I had taken 4 days off this past weekend,but seemed like 2.Busy the whole time working.Got the new faucet hitched up.Got our cabinets cleaned out and most everything moved back in.Got our new microwave mounted under our cabinet.Finally hired someone as wiring had to be moved.Kitchen floor is next project,probably a wood laminate,then walls get painted.
Another sad patriots game,two leads,but could not hold them.Replacement referees are having trouble controlling these games.Some scuffles going on,vicious forearms to players heads,players constantly trying to get away with things,on both sides.Real mess,but this had nothing to do with why they lost,defense couldn't stop the Ravens.
Beautiful fall weather,chilly mornings,38 degrees this morning.Cool fall like weather most of this week,although Tuesday should be in the 70's,then another cold front on Wednesday.

wild night in New England

By: NEwxguy, 1:38 PM GMT on September 19, 2012

It was rough night in New England,but thankfully the storms weakened as they moved east,but still some heavy rains with strong winds gusting up to 50.
Some downed trees and loss of power in the area,but nothing too serious.Could have been a lot worse.
Much quieter weather ahead,and some chilly nights with northern areas dropping into the 30's with some scattered frost.
Our granite countertops installed today.Can't wait to see them.Then I just have to hook up the faucet,and our kitchen will be functional again.

Last week of summer

By: NEwxguy, 1:30 PM GMT on September 17, 2012

So another summer comes to an end,amazing how fast they go by.Avg temps are slowly dropping,although we are still getting some 80 degree days off and on,but mornings have really chilled off.We dropped to 43 degrees this morning and some areas dropped into the 30's.
Big rain storm moving in for tomorrow night and first part of Wednesday. Lots of wind,heavy downpours,even some thunder as a lot of gulf moisture merges with an approaching front and a low pressure moves up through NY state.Then back to more normal fall weather for the end of the week and weekend.
Less said about the Patriots yesterday the better.Spent all weekend scrapping and sanding the walls,not a fun job.Granite countertops set to be installed on Wednesday.

Middle of September

By: NEwxguy, 2:25 PM GMT on September 14, 2012

Its been a warm first half of September.As expected it should be cooling down the last half of September.There have been numerous troughs moving across the US which cause big cool downs then big warmups.September is that transitional type of month,where you get these wide swings.The good news is all these troughs keep the tropical systems out to sea.Nadine is out there right now,but out in the central atlantic.May move over and threaten the Azores.Nothing else expected in the near future.We here in the Northeast start to relax as chances for tropical systems drop very low after the middle of the month.
Another 80 degree today,then fall weather returns for the foreseeable future.

Late summer weather

By: NEwxguy, 5:59 PM GMT on September 13, 2012

Little more than a week left in the calendar summer,fall starts on Saturday morning Sept. 22nd.
We are enjoying some nice late summer weather with temps into the 80's,cool down coming this weekend,but nothing extreme.Back to the 70's with nights dropping into the 40's. Next significant rain will be mid-week next week.could be a real soaker with a coastal storm.
Our kitchen cabinet refacing is done,and they really look great.Next up is the granite counter tops next week.I hope to finish my wall scrapping and sanding this weekend.
TS Nadine is out in the central atlantic which will be making a sharp curve north then NE to East and may threaten the Azores.Models point at another possible developement next week,but unless patterns change it will follow the same course.

Hump day

By: NEwxguy, 6:11 PM GMT on September 12, 2012

As weather days are rated,this will be a 10 today.
All of us in the Northeast are finishing the week in grand style.Today 75-80 low humidity,light winds.
Tomorrow low to mid 80's and Friday,then a slight cool down over the weekend,but still nice.
Tropics are still active,but we seem to have an invisible shield which bumps everything out to middle of the Atlantic.We are approaching the time when the Northeast becomes pretty safe from any systems as the fall trough train gets in full swing. In fact thats been the case since the end of August.Unless the weather pattern changes drastically we should be okay up here.Nadine will stay out to sea like its sister and brother Leslie and Michael.

remembering 911

By: NEwxguy, 1:43 PM GMT on September 11, 2012

Each year this day rolls around and I can remember the events like it happened yesterday.I remember the horror of each event that occurred that day.That stunned feeling how a group can invade our country and kill so many people.
I remember the day JFK was shot, and the feeling of the loss of innocence our country had up to that time,but after 911 I think it was the feeling of vulnerability that hit us,making us realize we aren't immune to attack.
So lets take time to remember all those who lost their lives in that horrible attack in New York and Washington and on the planes.

Monday

By: NEwxguy, 4:48 PM GMT on September 10, 2012

Start of the first full week of Setpember and it feels like fall.Not too cool this morning,but today is breezy and cool and more like the end of September. The good news is it warms back up for the end of the week.
Other good news,the tropical atlantic is staying out to sea for now, as the pattern is keeping troughs moving off the east coast and pushing them out to sea.
The Patriots started off well down in Tennessee.
The Red sox have settled in last place and does anyone care?

Touch of summer and fall

By: NEwxguy, 2:09 PM GMT on September 07, 2012

September is that transitional month where we have the touch of summer for a couple of days and then a front sweeps through to give the feel of fall.By the end of the month we definitely in the fall weather.But the first part of September is up and done.It is not rare to reach 90 degrees in the first couple of days.The real change is at night when you drop into the 50's most nights and start to get into the 40's some nights.
Evenings are getting very short,we don't get out on our deck for much before it starts getting dark and the mosquitoes come out,which is a concern with the high incidence of EEE occuring around the country.We just had our first death from EEE in massachusetts,with several other incidents where the patients recovered.
So Tropics are still active.
1.Hurr. Michael really put on a show out in the Atlantic,but is not threat to land and should start weakening soon.
2. TS Leslie still struggling to strengthen,but once it gets grabbed by the trough coming off the east coast and it starts moving off to the north it should strengthen into a Hurr. make a close pass to Bermuda and head off possibly to the Maritimes.
3. invest 90L in the gulf is not doing much at this point,and still unclear whether it will turn into anything,but should turn and pass over Florida with lots of rain.
4. Another system coming off the African coast,some models show this building and moving west toward the leewards or north of the islands.We'll have to wait and see what happens with that one.

Leslie out to sea

By: NEwxguy, 1:45 PM GMT on September 06, 2012

Hurrican Leslie looks like its heading farther east than expected yesterday,which should be good news for Bermuda and Canada.The trough and cold front are moving east quicker than expected so will push Leslie farther east.
Expect very large swells along the east coast through the weekend.
Less humid last night and today,warm through the weekend and then a touch of fall for early next week.From here on out cold fronts will mean business and become stronger and cooler air masses.
My neighbors Maple tree has a few leaves changing colors.Ouch!!!
Some major street flooding occured along the southern new england coast as a train of showers and storms passed over the same areas,finally ending late afternoon.
I had 1.14 inches yesterday.

Tropical weather in the northeast

By: NEwxguy, 2:51 PM GMT on September 05, 2012

So heavy downpours is what greeted me this morning,as a cold front and the remnants of Isaac bring in vry tropical air with dew points in the low 70's.
More showers today,maybe some severe weather this afternoon.
Then tomorrow should be dry,and more shwrs/thstrms for friday and the weekend ,with continued humid weather. more falllike conditions next week.
Very rough surf along our coast as Leslie races by over the weekend.Little or no chance of her hitting us.Michael way out in the middle atlantic.
Invest in the Gulf,should be another major wave coming off of Africa soon.

Redsox finally won a game last night,does anyone care? And the NFL season kicks off tonight with Giants and Cowboys going at it.

fall begins for the National weather agencie.

By: NEwxguy, 4:42 PM GMT on September 04, 2012

Had a beautiful weekend in New Hampshire over the holidays.Traffic was a problem coming back yesterday,but nothing I wasn't expecting.
Warm enough to hang out at the beach,but air had a fall feel to it.Now we go into some tropical air for the rest of the week,with some heavy rain later today and first part of tomorrow.Then warm and humid the rest of the week.
Eyes are watching leslie north of the islands,not moving much.Expected to start moving north end of the week or weekend. Could grow into a hurricane by Friday.For us here in New England its in a dangerous place,but once the steering sets in should carry well east of us,and Bermuda may get a big hit.This is still a long way out and we have to watch this.A trough is suppose to dig down from the Great Lakes,so this should pull it Northward and then push it out to the east of us,but it all hinges on how deep that trough gets.Nova Scotia and the maritimes are in greater risk than us,but it may even miss them.
TS Michael way out in the central Atlantic no danger to anyone.
