It has been dry here all year. Yesterday and last night, we had a nice soaking rain.
We are finally having weather that feels like fall. We’ve had some cooler days, but nothing sustained, and this won’t be either.
I glanced at the weather during the commercials last night while watching the Phillies game and saw a frost advisory was active. I brought the hibiscus into the garage.
Here it is, early October, and after yesterday’s eighty degree high, we slept with the bedroom window open.
Today started out sunny, but it turned into a good old-fashioned rainy, fall-like day. There was a nice steady rain this afternoon.
Last week was just hot and humid. It brought our highest temperature of the year and our longest heatwave of the season.
It’s been a while, but about 3:30 or so I got woken up by thunder. As always, I had to get up and watch the storm.
That wildfire smoke from Canada was crazy. In the past, we’ve had hazy skies, but this time you could taste it and smell it. Visibility dropped to less than a mile.
It’s not often that you see the potential of dry thunderstorms mentioned around here. Today I see that in the forecast and forecast discussion. I can’t remember seeing that in the past.
This spring has been a very dry one. We’ve had less than a third of an inch of rain in May. The grass is mostly brown now.
This afternoon brought thunderstorms repeatedly popping up and passing just to our south. We only got a little light rain, but this evening I was treated to a very vivid rainbow.
We had nice looking thunderstorm off to our west this afternoon. The line eventually made it into Mount Joy but it took a while.
Yesterday was a really nice day from the start, but today was slower to start. By mid-afternoon, the clouds moved out, and it warmed into the lower 80s. Late in the afternoons, a refreshing southerly breeze kicked in.
The winter that just ended was not a good one at all for us snow lovers. We had hardly any, and the winter was dominated by a southeast ridge, keeping it mostly mild. I had to mow the lawn in late March because it’s growing so much and so green.
Here in Mount Joy Yesterday we had our first thunderstorms of the year. The one in the morning just brought us heavy rain and a rumble of thunder. The ones last night brought lots more.
This winter, there really hasn’t been all that much fur to us in the snow or even cold department. Today we’re finally getting our first appreciable snow Accumulation, and even that won’t last.
This winter so far has been abysmal at best as far as snowfall is concerned here in Central Pennsylvania. We ended up getting a coating overnight, which was nice to see.
Today has been one of those rainy and foggy winter days. Tonight it’s got me remembering hearing the fog horns on ships once in a while growing up not too far from the Delaware river.
Today was a day to remember with the large temperature swing. The high was in the mid-fifties a couple of hours before dawn, and it had dropped to the single digits by late evening.
It’s pretty late this winter, but we’re finally getting the first accumulation of snow that I’ve seen so far. It won’t last long, but it’s nice to see it.
This morning we’re having some freezing rain. We held on to temperatures just below freezing along with freezing rain just a little longer than other local weather stations.
This week is the complete opposite of the weather last week. I glanced at the NWS forecast this morning and it’s the first time I’ve seen snow in the forecast this fall.
After the recent very mild period, a cold front moved through. We’re back into the more normal fifties range for the high temperatures, instead of the seventies.
It is November and I have the window open. The temperature is pushing 70 ℉.
Today was much cooler than the past few days. It was very refreshing. It was really helpful with my lifting session this morning. A little while later, I did a WOD outside, enjoying the breeze.
We were leaving a ball field close to sunset today and some cool iridescent clouds caught my eyes. I don’t notice them nearly as much in the summer as the winter, so it was nice to see them.
It was a nice surprise to get woken up about 2:30 or so last night by an unexpected thunderstorm. The storm itself was nothing special, but it being unexpected made it cool. There were a couple of close lightning strikes by the sounds of it.
It’s such a nice day today, we decided to take advantage of i and eat supper out on the patio at the table. The sinking sun and slight breeze felt good.
With today and the next few days being so warm, and it’s the middle of April now, we decided to take the glass out and put the screen back in the front door.
It’s said there’s a first time for everything. Today was my first time mowing the lawn with snow flakes and graupel falling.
Weather wise today was a pretty interesting day. All day long there was a strong south easterly wind. Eventually towards evening the clouds broke up and the sun came out for a bit. We had a decent thunderstorm in the evening then a better one a couple of hours later.
Today has been a cold and windy day with gusts getting up near 30 mph. The high was only near freezing though with lots of snow squalls around. Just not one here in Mount Joy.
Here it is March 19th and after our mid 70s spring like day a broken line of thunderstorms was moving through the area in the evening. We were between cells so we got nothing more than some very light drizzle. We did get to see some lightning in the distant thunderstorm off to our south east and a red rainbow since it was just about at sunset.
As much as I love cold and the winter these recent 70 degree days are really giving me spring fever now.
We got out for a nice walk this evening after supper. It was our first after supper walk I think since last fall that it wasn’t dark. It was nice not being blinded by the passing traffic’s headlights. There were a disappointing number of homes and businesses that didn’t clear the snow yesterday and just had an icy mess.
It’s the middle of March, and we’re finally getting a decent snow storm. The storms so far this winter have been mostly mediocre around here at best. We ended up with three or four inches.
I have always liked seeing fresh snowfall on the trees and stuff when the sun first comes out after a storm. Today was one of those chances I got to see that before it melts or blows off.
Even though the temperature has been above freezing all day, and it’s been warm, it did actually snow today. Some even accumulated in the areas that don’t get any of the strong solar radiation yet.
March seventh we had our first severe thunderstorm warning of 2022. My weather station recorded a maximum wind gust of 48.1 mph. It was a surprisingly good thunderstorm for early March here in Mount Joy, PA. Even had a couple of flashes of lightning.
This morning things didn’t really look like the forecast high in the 70s was going to verify with the thick clouds hanging on. They broke up around lunch time and the temperature went up to 70.
We had a decent snow squall actually survive after it moved east of the Mountains. Decent burst of snow in Lancaster and even more at home in Mount Joy with a fresh dusting.
I feel like I remember cold fronts being much sharper when I was a kid. That could be just the bias of remembering bigger deals. This morning’s cold front featured a nice squall line with wind and quick drop in temperature and dew point
A few miles can make all the difference in weather sometimes. We went to Lititz today, and it appeared that they had more snow than we did yesterday. Ours is almost all gone, but the ground was still covered up there.
The past couple of mild days were mild, but now winter is back, at least temporarily, with some wet snow overnight.
Today’s high temperature overshot the forecast by 5 degrees. I noticed it felt pretty waRm when I took Brooke to the bus stop this morning.
Watching these coastal storms blow up off of the east coast have always amazed me. With the tools available on the internet it’s even more interesting to watch them explode.
One single cloud first appeared in front of the sun giving that awesome winter irreverence effect that you see at times when the clouds are ice crystals
We made it out for a nice walk this evening. It was a really nice walk with the fresh dusting of snow and it still being daylight out.
Nice impressive winter storm for us here. Not all snow but it was a fun storm.
I was pretty surprised to wake up this morning and peak at the pressure plot from my Ambient weather station and see that it picked up what I assume is the shock wave from that massive Tonga Volcano explosion
Last night before I went to bed the radar was looking really good for snow. This morning it was pretty clear that the storm over performed with what looked like at least 4 inches of snow.
We finally get a winter weather advisory for 2 to 4 inches of snow tomorrow night. Of course, the neighbors have to get their snowblower ready for that.
We managed to time our evening walk just right today. We got out there just as the snow was beginning to fall.
finally a snow storm but it’s going to miss us to the south. It’s good to see one not cutting up well to the west at least.
There had been a chance of snow in the forecast for today, but I wasn’t expecting any accumulation, but we ended up with a nice surprise. Everything is white. Even the roads!
It turned out sunnier and warmer today than I expected with the high in the mid 50s.
It turned out pretty nice today. The sun came out and the temperature spiked into the low sixties.
It’s pretty late, but we had our first snow flurries of the year. Well, it was our first daytime snow flurries that I saw.
We have had our first snowfall of the season finally. It wasn’t much, but it’s something.
Today was a fairly breezy day and it was cool to have my personal weather to measure it. I’ve missed that.
We were leaving the grocery store near sunset this evening and I noticed some cumulus clouds off to the northwest. I also noted some virga under it. That was probably snow flurries
I was given an Ambient WS-5000 early as my Christmas gift. So far, I am really liking it. I’ve been wanting a personal weather station for a long time now, but haven’t gotten one and set it up properly until now.
Finally we are getting our first freeze here in early November. Our flowers have been thrilled with the warm fall but that’s over now.
Finally the cooler fall like weather has arrived. The low this morning dipped into the 40s for the first time since last spring.
The NWS in Philadelphia has confirmed 7 tornadoes that came from Ida. It was just a few weeks ago they confirmed ten if I am remembering correctly.
With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the and passing the area, it brought all sorts of extreme weather for this area and the entire region, really. Flooding all over the place and some tornadoes were the main features.
With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the area then interacting with a cold front right in our area tomorrow and tomorrow night certainly look to be a mess. I don’t know if it will be right here In Mount Joy, but where everything set up, there will be a lot of rain.
Today it is a rainy day. My middle finger is a bit angry from curling my step grandson yesterday. I did a lighter WOD than I normally have because of that When we went for a walk in the evening, I had to jump in the puddles because life’s too short to not have fun.
What a thunderstorm that was, we had here last evening. It Easily had the strongest winds I can remember since the microburst years ago.
I was sleeping pretty well when I got woken up by unexpected thunder. There was pretty good lightning with it and being the darkest part of the night it seemed extra bright.
We had a pretty good thunderstorm here this evening. On top of that, there was a nice double rainbow this evening as the storm moved off to the east.
It has certainly been a stormy summer back in Bensalem. Today brought them a tornado instead of flooding.
I have been hearing quite a few wrens singing outside. It’s really bringing back the fond memories of summer days up the mountains with Nan and Pop.
You know that it must be pretty humid when the sun is shining, but it’s raining. There were only very thin clouds, but it was raining enough to wet the ground this afternoon.
For the second day in a row now, we had a pretty decent thunderstorm.
Great, the media learned the term “heat dome.” Now they will be over using and abusing that term, like they do with “polar vortex.” It will be the new scary summer hype word.
Today is a much cooler day compared the the hot and humid weather we’ve been having. It certainly made working out a lot nicer than it has been.
Today has been much cooler and drier than it has been. It really reminds me of going to the mountains when I was a kid, where the evenings were much cooler than the Philly suburbs.
We had a pretty good thunderstorm last night. That storm came after yesterday being a hot and humid day, with a few thunderstorms missing us earlier.
The forecast this morning was for the sky to remain cloudy all day today but shortly after lunch it cleared up. Not just breaks in the clouds but the sky fully cleared up and remained that way at least until after sunset save a few small clouds.
Spring is finally feeling like it’s here. It was nice this morning and today was the first day so far this year that it just felt humid
I’ve always preferred sleeping with the windows open. That’s exactly what we got to do last night. It seems to make me sleep better
We just had our first rainbow of the year and it was a vivid double rainbow.
We had a pretty good early spring thunderstorm last night.
The storm was one of those with a lot of hype, but things had to be just right for it to verify. This time it worked out, and we wound up with about a foot of snow.
We had a decent snow storm for being so early. Not what the usual Facebook “meteorologists” hyped it to be, but it was decent enough.
We have had our first snow of the year, and it was pretty early. It was accumulating while I was doing my WOD.
It looks and feels like snow today. It reminds me of hanging out with the guys up the mountains for buck season. Being visually impaired I did not hunt, but I did eat, drink and play cards.
It’s pretty windy tonight I am hearing the occasional gust outside. It’s really reminding me of going to the mountains growing up. I’d often hear the wind blowing at night during the fall and hunting season
We had a pretty good thunderstorm last night. Being in the middle of the night in the middle of November I was really impressed with it since conditions are not great for thunderstorms here in the fall.
It’s really strange to me to see the skies so smoky from the west coast wildfires. The smoke is traveling thousands of miles and still dense enough to dim the sun and haze the skies.
Today brought heat and humidity. That helped us get a decent thunderstorm later in the day.
We had a pretty decent thunderstorm pop up just before hitting us. It makes the past couple of brutally hot days sort of worth it at least.
The past couple of days have been hot and very humid with showers and thunderstorms popping up every day. A nice cluster popped up this evening but missed us by a mile or two. We did get a nice view of cloud to ground lightning under the storm.
Yesterday into this morning its been extremely humid. The dew point’s been in the mid 70s. That’s about as humid as it gets around here.
A derecho moved through Pennsylvania and New Jersey yesterday. We only got a decent storm with moderate wind. The bow moved north of us though.
This morning there was a very fast moving line of thunderstorm moving through Pennsylvania. The severe thunderstorm warning had them moving 100 miles per hour. That’s not something I remember seeing to often if ever.
Today it was very warm and humid. That made the day’s lift mentally tough. I just don’t deal with the the heat well.
It’s just a nasty humid spring day. It’s been drizzly and miserable. The tropical storm moving up to our west is pumping all that tropical moisture in.
Today has been a strange day. It’s been surprisingly windy with winds from the east.
We’re finally getting a warm spring like day after the first half of May was rainy and Chilly. It took until the middle of May to even reach the 80s this year.
Yesterday was a windy and cold May day. There were snow flurries nearby, but I didn’t personally see any.
I finally found what I think is as close as perfect weather app for android that their will be. I’ve been using the Wx app. Rather than trying to be pretty it is just functional with loads of information available..
I had to laugh at the chance of snow showers in the forecast. It’s even funnier being may and after the fact that we’ve had such a poor winter.
It took too long, but we are finally getting into a weather pattern that could have given us snow during the winter. We were stuck with a milder pattern during the winter but now, but it’s cool and stormy.
It has been windy since yesterday’s storms and cold front moved through.There have been some strong gusts here.
We had a pretty impressive April thunderstorm race past us. WE didn’t get directly under the cell but we got the edge which brought plenty of wind and of course thunder and lightning.
We had a pretty good thunderstorm about 3:00 AM this morning. It brought pretty decent lightning and winds especially for othis time of the year.
It’s a chilly day with on and off heavy rain today. A few minutes ago I heard my first thunder of 2020. Hope we get in on some good storms this spring and summer.
Today started out damp and dreary but it turned out to be a really nice day. After we got home from the grocery store I did my starting strength. After that I half slept/ zoned out on the chair in the sun on the patio.
It is a cool and rainy spring day. During the winter, this could probably have been a decent snow storm.
We had a bit of snow falling this morning. Not much, but it was nice to see something after this failure of a winter.
Today started out warm. It was our first 80 degree day of 2020
It cleared up today and got nice. We decided that it was the perfect opportunity to go for a nice walk and a couple of caches on the Northwest River Trail.
We finally had a nice day so we could get outside for a nice walk. We were able to grab a couple of caches while we were out.
It was very dry today, too dry even. My nose felt like it was drying out. Local weather stations showed the relative humidity being around eleven percent.
Today I get to watch the radar instead of the snow. The Carolinas are getting hammered, but we’re barely even getting clouds from the storm.
We had our coldest night of the year so far, and of course, it was wasted cold. It didn’t include any snow.
Today’s high was in the 60s. That meant I got to go unwind on the patio in the sunshine after the two WODs today.
Back to this winter’s normal pattern again. We had yet another rainstorm. At least it’s fairly mild and not just 33 ℉ and rain.
Today’s high in the 50s means we get to have cheeseburgers on the grill for supper! I good part of the day was even sunny!
Another cold front moved through. So far, this year apart from the arctic shot in December, nothing has compared to the past few years.
It’s windy today, with occasionally strong gusts. It’s really relaxing to me to hear it.
We got into the 60s today and got into the 60s yesterday. Any trace of last week’s snow is long gone thanks to the mild temperatures.
We ended up with a couple of inches of snow yesterday. It was wet snow and stuck to everything.
It looks as if we have received a couple of inches of snow so far today. The original forecast was for around an inch.
I have always been a little annoyed when people use current weather to deny climate change. While they are related day to day, weather isn’t climate.
We had another little snowfall here. It’s kind of nice having these early snows and promising for the winter.
It’s only December fourth, and we’ve had two storms here in Mount joy with Snow accusations. It’s pretty early yet.
I wasn’t expecting that snow. I was surprised to see that the rain switched to pretty heavy snow.
The theme for this summer seems to be double rainbows. Here is a picture of our fourth one of the year here in Mount Joy.
We had a pretty good thunderstorm this evening. As that moved away we had our third double rainbow of the year. It’s only been a little over a week since the last one.
Even though we really did not get much rain from it there was a thunderstorm in the right spot to our east that we had our second double rainbow of the year. It was also the second double rainbow in a week’s time here in Mount Joy.
When we were driving home we saw a double rainbow. This one was very vivid!
We had some heavy rain and then the sun came out while it was still raining. Of course I went to see if there ws a rainbow and there as a double rainbow.
We were at Cape May when we had a good thunderstorm move over us in the evening. When it moved off the coast the sun came out. We saw a rainbow out over the ocean. That’s the first time in my life I’ve witnessed a rainbow over the ocean myself.
We had a warm day today and an evening thunderstorm in March is always good
I have always wondered why people go in the rush to the store to buy milk, bread and eggs when it’s forecast to snow. Even the worst of storms wouldn’t shut things down around here for more than a day or two.
We had the normal snow to ice to changeover again. It’s odd how there appears to be the biggest snow storms around Presidents’ Day.
This week’s temperature has ranged something like 60 degrees now with today’s high being in the middle 60s.
Here we are back to groundhog day. They’ll make a big production of nothing, of some stupid myth.
One thing that is a disadvantage around here in NW Lancaster county is how we’re so far from all of the local doppler radars. The beams are about ten thousand feet high so precipitation can be completely below it like today’s snow squalls. It’s usually more noticeable with stratiform rain.
We finally got some snow before the arctic front moves through tomorrow. I saw a squirrel sitting on the patio table after the snow.
Like most of the storms so far this winter, We’re having yet another warm storm.
We had some slow that quickly changed to rain. Now the arctic front is on its way through for a quick cold shot.
The year of 2018 was a year of major flooding here in Central PA and Especially Lancaster County.
This winter we’ve had some early snow. Technically, it was still autumn when the middle of November when we had the snow.
Our biggest snow storms seem to be around President’s Day. That won’t be the case today, with the high temperature being near 80 ℉.
We headed out to the NW river trail to check out the river ice. It was cool looking so I had to share some pictures.
I found some pictures of my first big snowfall after moving to Mount Joy. It turned out to be one of the area’s top ten of all time, I believe.
Today was really cool since we had the solar eclipse. It wasn’t total here but it was really cool to watch things darken. The last time was when I was elementary school. I really noticed the wind pick up and the temperature drop when the sun slid behind the moon.
February tornado? Sure. We didn’t get one but the cell had rotation when it went over us. It did drop a tornado over in York county before geting here though
We were driving home from Lancaster on 283 when we saw a large mushroom cloud looking cumulus cloud. We stopped at a nearby park on the way home with a clear view to the west and watched it wax and wane for a bit.
We had a bigger snow storm on January 23rd. We ended up getting two to three feet of snow.
There was a potent thunderstorm today up towards Hershey, Lebanon. The sky was unusually clear for a day with thunderstorms this evening, so I got to watch the lightning flashing in and out of the distant storm.
I am making more posts from our trip to the mountains as I come across some pictures. We had a great thunderstorm and I got this frame from a video of lightning over the mountain.
Another week and more snow for us is in the forecast. The storm should bring our heaviest snow fall of the year so far.
Per the forecast, it looks like a few inches of snow here. To our north, they’ll likely get six or more inches.
It looks like we should be getting a couple of inches of snow here in Lancaster County. The heavier snow should stay to our east.
I woke up this morning to a coating of snow. I’m beginning to think that may be all we get this year with the pattern so far.
December was a cold and dry month around here. Harrisburg ended the month with the average temperature being 4.1 degrees below average.
We didn’t get all that much snow from Sunday’s storm, we did get a lot of wind. It will be the last storm of the year, and it was a windy one.
We had a nice snow storm with snowfall rates of up to two to three inches per hour. Ended up with about twenty inches.
December was a good month. We had above average snowfall with the storms over performing. Now the forecast has plenty more cold air and chances in it.
It’s March first and looks like we might finally get a snow storm! NWS has us under a winter storm warning for five to eight inches of snow.
We had a strong February storm system but it cut into the lakes keeping us in the warm sector. It didn’t make it here but the cold front had a really impressive squall line racing across Pennsylvania.
An arctic shot is coming next week. The cold has been building for a while now and looks like it’s going to finally head southward.
We had a NICE MOISTURE rich storm that is causing snow in New England. If only it had been snow here. With my Davis Vantage Pro2 recording just over two inches of snow.
It’s November 20th and there’s a nice-looking snow squall stretching across Pennsylvania.
The snow flurries I thought we might get last night turned into a nice coating of snow.
The mild weather last week ended when we had a fairly strong move through. Now, it’s pretty chilly for November.
Well a nice coastal storm is developing off the East coast. It will bring rain here but it could have been a nice snow storm in January.
It’s late October and the storms are starting. One spun up off the mid Atlantic coast. That brought some snow to higher elevations.
It’s always a sign of winter coming when the leaves are turning. It’s also a good sign to see CTP talking about lake effect snows
Hurricane Omar has been fascinating to watch. It shows how quickly these storms can change. It rapidly intensified faster than I expected it to.
After the tropics got fairly quiet now Tropical Storm Marco has formed in the Gulf of Mexico.
Hurricane Ike’s aftermath is a good example of how the category doesn’t tell the whole store of the damage that can occur from tropical systems.
Hurricane Ike is a large hurricane. It’s not the strongest but it’s large in size
There seems to be some pretty strong morning thunderstorm moving towards us.
That was a pretty good line of storms. Especially given they mvoed through in the morning.
Tropical Storm Hanna made landfall in the CaRolinas. it brought heavy rains and is now back off the coast.
Tropical storm is approaching the Carolina coast. It’s not that strong of a storm, as it’s not even at hurricane strength.
The tropical Atlantic is still active in the basin. It’s near the peak of the season and we have two tropical storms and a major hurricane spinning out there.
Hurricane Gustav made landfall today in Louisiana as a category 3. It’s been fun for me to track this one.
Hurricane Gustav has rapidly strengthened overnight and is now almost a major hurricane.
The tropics have gotten pretty active. We have both Gustav and Hanna.
Hurricane Gustav has formed near Cuba.
Tropical storm Fay was pretty interesting to watch. It never got strong, but it brought heavy rains to the southeast.
A cold from blew through. The front made for a nice cool night last night where it almost felt a bit chilly.
We were away geocaching last week and as we were heading home we saw a nasty looking storm north of us. We never got under the storm but I saw reports of golf ball sized hail and a funnel cloud with it.
Tropical storm Dolly has formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Looks like that one should strengthen into a hurricane and the make landfall in Texas. That’ll give me something to track.
Tropical storm Dolly has formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Looks like that one should strengthen into a hurricane and the make landfall in Texas. That’ll give me something to track.
Yesterday was a very humid day. Small thunderstorms were popping up but missing us. They seemed to be focused along the Susquehanna and were stationary.
Severe weather season has been active this year. SPC has us in a moderate risk area again.
Today will be the last day of this heat wave that has been affecting us here in central Pennsylvania. Hopefully it ends with a bang meaning good storms.
What an awesome line of storms we had move through here on Wednesday. There were even reports of tornadoes with the second line. Now on to the heat.
Last Saturday we ended up not getting any good thunderstorms here even though we were under the moderate risk. They tried to for m but not much could seem to make it. Got to watch some cool distant lighting to our north at least.
It’s may 12th and we’ve had two Nor Easters within a weak. It’s been a cool weather week for sure.
Last night was an interesting night. We had a couple of thunderstorms before I went to bed. Not anything major but it’s still mid April. I got woken up at 4:30 AM by another storm.
We didn’t get as much rain as expected from last weekend’s storm. It seemed to start to intensify just as it crossed central Pennsylvania.
More heavy rain on the way. We’re back under a flood watch, too.
We’re in for a milder storm with plenty of moister available. A flood watch will be active.
It was a pretty cold morning here for the end of February. My Davis showed that it reached the middle teens.
We ended up getting an inch or two of snow this morning. I guess a little snow is better than none.
It looks like the Susquehanna valley is in for another ice storm. We’ve been placed in a winter storm watch for it.
Yesterday we had a nice surprises. We had a clipper leave us with more than an inch of snow. At night it had cleared up in time for the lunar eclipse too!
It’s another day and another storm off to our west. That’s been the pattern this winter.
We wound up having a fun little ice storm. Some of the rain was heavy Quite a few branches broke from the weight. It’s the first I remember seeing tree damage other than twigs since 1994.
This time last year we quite a memorable sleet storm. It was the most sleet I can remember seeing.
Sunday ended up being blustery with temperatures getting down to 10 with a high only into the 20s. It seems like such a waste to get cold like that without snow.
Nice, We are having some surprise snow flurries!
What season is it anyway? Yesterday we had two thunderstorms and temperatures in the mid 60s. It’s early February.
We’re having a quick arctic shot right now. It made it down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit but no where close to the record of -22 in 1994. That winter was something else.
I looked at the radar then out the window and got a surprise. It was snowing moderately, and the grass was white!
As I was expecting, we didn’t get any snow here in Mount Joy from this storm. It was rain instead.
There is at least a potential for snow here in Lancaster County Sunday into Monday.
I cannot even comprehend the snowfall forecast that the NWS has out for Sierra Nevada. The forecast is calling for Seven to Ten Feet of.
October 2007 was the warmest October on record. I am certain that I will be seeing this much more often as my life goes on.
Hurricane Felix is about to make landfall in Nicaragua. It’s back up to a category 5 storm!
It’s not something that happens every year so it is interesting to me. Hurricane Felix is the second category five storm in the Atlantic basin this year.
We had a great time attending a geocaching event. After the event Lynn twisted our arms into doing some more caching. We got caught in a severe storm and lots of roads were blocked by downed trees.
I just saw that Dante South Dakota had five and a quarter inch hail. I can’t imagine the sounds of that hitting stuff or the damage can do.
Hurricane Dean is now a category five storm. It’s winds are up to 160 mph and should make landfall over the Yucatan Peninsula overnight tonight.
Hurricane is about to made landfall as a category five storm with 165 mph winds. It’s now weakened to a category three storm while over the land of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Hurricane Dean is still a category four hurricane. It should get clsoe tol Jamaica later today.
Hurricane Dean now has winds of a 125 miles per hour and a category three storm. It’s expected to strengthen some more too. It’s looking healthy on satellite right now.
So far this ear the Atlantic basin has been quiet in the Tropics but we now have finally have a hurricane. Tropical Storm Dean has strengthened into one.
Today we should get some nice thunderstorms and there were already nice looking cells out west this morning. It will be a nice break from the past couple of days of Hell like heat.
We had near misses of thunderstorms yesterday and last night but nothing hit us. Early this morning I got woken up by thunder. Turned out a small one formed right over us.
So far this summer has been great. The easy has been mostly a trough and no real heat so far. Hope this pattern continues into the winter too! There’s been plenty of thunderstorms too.
No thunderstorms for us today. I was hoping for some good ones but we were stuck under the remnant clouds from storms to our west overnight last night.
We had a pretty nice thunderstorms move through this afternoon. I wasn’t expecting much with the clouds this morning but they popped.
Last night we had a really good thunderstorm. It featured lots of close lightning strikes with very bright flashes.
It’s pretty cool to see summer snow on Mount Washington. That area just has such interesting weather due to its elevation and location.
It was around this time in 1972 that the remnants of Hurricane Agnes impacted the area. I’ve always been fascinated by that storm even though it was before my time. I just have heard so many stories about it.
It looks like there are some nice thunderstorms out in western Pennsylvania today. It’d be great if we got some with the cold front.
Yesterday was one of the best thunderstorm days we’ve had ina while. We had some lightning that was a little too close for comfort for me to sit on the porch/
Today could be a good day for thunderstorm activity . SPC has us under a slight risk.
Last week there was a tornado warning here. That got me wondering about the local history of tornadoes.
We had an unusual occurrence There were thunderstorms popping up the past couple of days and they were moving from north east. Normally they go the opposite direction.
Yesterday we had some pretty good thunderstorms in the area. There was lots of lightning with these thunderstorms.
Earlier this afternoon it ws looking good for thunderstorms. We only got some rain here since they ran out of time. Where they did hit they were slow moving and brought flash flooding.
Looks like there’s aT least a chance for severe thunderstorms tomorrow. I hope we get some good storms!
There’s an intense April Nor’easter occurring right now. We got a couple of inches of rain. Imagine ikf ikt were snow!
It’s April 6th and the radar is showing plenty of lake effect snow squalls and showers in Pennsylvania.
The calendar says march 27th but the weather says April 27th. It was in the 80s and the radar showed what appeared to be thunderstorm west of here.
I came across this video posted on a weather message board of them turning boiling water instantly into snow on Mount Washington. That weather station’s climate is really fascinating to me.
This strange winter is continuing. We’re forecasted to get some snow, and snow in March is always a good thing.
Meteorological winter is over now. It was not a good one for me as a snow lover since we didn’t get all that much of it.
It has been warm outside the past few days. It looks like a thunderstorm is approaching. That has me hoping for some good ones this season.
Today it feels a lot like spring. It’s much milder than it has been.
I am remembering the second major snowstorm on Presidents’ Day, at least while I was alive. It was my first big snowstorm here in Mount Joy, PA.
We ended up having about six inches of very compact sleet and snow. Everything froze into a rock-hard glacier like ice when it got colder.
The snow that I had hoped for yesterday didn’t materialize. It was sleet and ice instead.
I was reading about the insane lake effect snow that occurred near Redfield, NY. I can’t imagine experiencing that.
It looks like there’s finally a potential for a snow storm. Maybe we’ll finally have some snow here in Mount Joy.
We decided to go check out the ice on the Susquehanna River today since it’s been so cold. It’s always wild to see all the ice on the river when you’re used to seeing the water moving.
It’s been below freezing for a few days with the arctic air. We usually like to go check out the river ice if we get the chaNce.
We finally have arctic air in place. The cold is wasted though since we won’t be getting any snowfall out of it.
As I expected all week, the forecasted snow last night never materialized here.
This past week has been cold, with no real snowfall. I think it’s a big waste of cold air.
It’s finally feeling like winter around here. We should have a chance of snow squalls with an arctic cold front.
We finally had our first snowfall of the year. It’s a pretty late one this winter.
I just talked to my mom and she told me that the neighbor’s tree fell on her roof. Must have been pretty severe thunderstorms in Bensalem
