Ken Reeves, VP of Accuweather was killed this evening at his home in College Township, PA after falling off the roof of his house while taking down Christmas lights. Neighbors witnessed the fall.

RIP.


That is sad. I have been up on a 40 foot roof putting up and taking down lights and said no more after 2 years. It's just not worth it. It doesn't take much. I didn't know him. God rest his soul

Northeast Daily Records From 03/19 - 03/24

This was a big list and I definately have missed a few, but I think I got about 95% of them. NCDC has been far behind on releasing them, and a couple of the NWS offices don't do records for a couple of their stations. I just don't feel like weeding through it all to see which ones I missed. I use a combination of NCDC & NWS to try and get them all.

Record high minimums from 03/22 through 03/24 not yet released by NCDC so they're not included.

A number (xx) on the right side denotes record broken by 10F or more and represent the old record.

Thanks Listener. I didn't know you worked in industry as you got your doctorate. Sounds like a great job. I also know he must not have been well liked on the Outer Banks. My brother and sisters and all their in-laws vacation in Avon, NC and they tell me how the residents aren't always happy with the beach closings. Like you said it's part of keeping a species alive.

When I boat around Ocean City, MD I occassionally see an oyster catcher. Not an exceptionally pretty bird like the songbirds or hawks or eagles, but it is fun to watch in the high grass along the water.

So far 0.50" of rain. I think we are below normal for the month. 0.86" of rain for the month. From the radar it looks to be a dreary misty day

OriginalLT ~ Thanks!
Son and DIL managed to fly out of Raleigh just before the Tornado Watch went up. =Whew!= They made it home safely. :-) Between 5pm yesterday when he got his Ph.D. title and 5pm today, he was required to reformat his 155 page dissertation and get it into the publisher's hands. All this while flying home!

TRP ~ Thank-you!
Actually, he has had a job for several years with the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, as their American Oystercatcher Recovery Campaign Coordinator. He is primarily a research and field Wildlife Biologist. The work he did on the Outer Banks was used by the State of North Carolina to sue the Fish and Wildlife Department and cause them to have to do a better job of protecting nesting sites on North Carolina beaches, such as closing beaches to ATVs during bird and turtle nesting season. The work he did at the top of Alaska contributed to data being collected in behalf of species there and in discerning the changes in climate. He was sent to the Gulf of Mexico by Manomet, in the wake of the BP spill, to head up Shorebird Recovery. His primary concern for some years has been observing American Oystercatcher birds, because where that one species goes at least 20 other species follow. So if you protect the habitat of the AMOY birds, you protect many species. He did an aerial study from the top of Maine to the tip of Texas for this...which is part of why he was sent to the GOM. He has also worked out on South Monomoy Island off Cape Cod and did a stint here in Vermont as well.
While he is intelligent, witty, fun and excellent at explaining things, he prefers fieldwork to teaching.
Thanks for asking! Google Manomet or even the title of his dissertation to see more.

I just saw a map of the world climate and only the US and Canada is above normal for temps. The rest of the world is cooler than normal. Pretty amazing how the weather works for the world. I guess if you wanted snow and cold this winter you needed to go anywhere except North America.


We definatley have seen the brunt of anomolous warmth across the globe, with Europe & Alaska seeing the brunt of anomolous cold.

Globally, we were slightly below the 1981-2010 average global temperature during the months of January, February, and most of March. We have just recently risen to slightly above average, in correspondence with the ENSO trend towards Neutral.

LaNina events have a tendency toward relatively cooler global means while ElNino events have a tendency toward relatively warmer global means. Much of this is due to Pacific SST's which are warmer during ElNino events & cooler during LaNina upwelling events, triggered by pressure rises & falls & a change in predominant wind/ocean currents.

On average, LaNina, Neutral & ElNino events are getting warmer, respectively.

This image shows the difference between ElNino & LaNina SST anomolies near the equatorial pacific.



This image shows mean global temperature anomolies since 1979 as compared to the 1981-2010 timeframe. The rises & falls, especially with regards to the blue-dot monthly averages, highlight LaNina vs ElNino events. The red line is the 13-month running mean.

The 0.0C line is the 1981-2010 Global Mean.

Quoting MariettaMoon:
Recently the CPC has improved climate prediction tools and techniques through dynamical and statistical models and methods, forecaster practices and protocols, data and model improvements, and scientific concepts. Obviously, exact confidence shrinks as you head forward in time, so typically you would see anomolies shrink towards EC (equal chances) as you move forward in time. So you could perceive the confidence of the forecasted anomolous warmth predicted in the longer ranges as being less likely to be correct, or you could perceive the confidence of the forecasted anomolous warmth as impressive, given that we would typically see almost everywhere shrink to EC as you move forward in time. I have noticed a vast improvement in the accuracy of these predictions lately. These were released on March 15th.





Looks like they ran out of blue marker! A hot year is ahead.

Wow, I guess being at home makes you want to get everything going. It's been a bit dry. Hopefully, you won't have to water or your parents water.

We finally got into some warm air and brilliant sunshine

I say why not; the long term forecast continues to look normal to above normal with little if any chance of incoming cold shots. It is amazing how early the fruit trees are blooming this year. It feels like May.

MM,I guess we better get use to these above normal temps.
I have to say as much as its nice to get these warms temps and get outside,there is a real danger growing. We have red flag warnings up here in New England.We need some rain badly.Little or no snow runoff to fill the reservoirs this year.Extremely dry forest floors. Could be some dangerous days ahead if we don't get some rain this spring.

Recently the CPC has improved climate prediction tools and techniques through dynamical and statistical models and methods, forecaster practices and protocols, data and model improvements, and scientific concepts. Obviously, exact confidence shrinks as you head forward in time, so typically you would see anomolies shrink towards EC (equal chances) as you move forward in time. So you could perceive the confidence of the forecasted anomolous warmth predicted in the longer ranges as being less likely to be correct, or you could perceive the confidence of the forecasted anomolous warmth as impressive, given that we would typically see almost everywhere shrink to EC as you move forward in time. I have noticed a vast improvement in the accuracy of these predictions lately. These were released on March 15th.

Ahoy Hoynieva!

Did you get some maple syrup?



Hey, sorry, been too busy to get online much these days with gardening in full force. We did in fact get maple syrup, but decided not to check out the process as we had very little time up there and there's so much to do. We stopped at a sugar house and grabbed a couple of giant bottles, which we haven't opened yet as I had recently bought a smaller bottle of Vermont syrup here in NYC.

Next time up there I'll check out more of those places you spoke of, but I think our next New England trip, whenever that is, will be up through Maine as it's another beautiful state we haven't been and it kind of seems silly considering where we currently reside.

This weather is totally absurd. To think we're talking about a cool down this weekend with temps going down in the 60's...in March. I see no frost/freeze in our forecast, but there are a couple of days where it's gets down into the 30's at night in the extended, so hopefully there isn't a hard freeze where any of you guys live...now that many of the plants are emerging/have emerged. I've already harvested chives several times, some carrots that survived the winter, kale and even some broccoli that also survived the winter.

Anyway, have to run. Hope everyone is well and, TRP, I was not at the St Patty's day parade...it was actually nice being in Montreal that day where it was less celebrated. People in New York, many of them tourists, sort of make that day obnoxious as they're already drunk on the subways at 10AM and the situation steadily deteriorates throughout the day, haha.

Farewell for now.

It looks like forecasters don't know much about this weekends storm. Leading up to this morning they had rain and temps in the mid 50's for Sunday. Now they have temp of 72F. How can they be that far off?

Wow, was the grass wet this morning. The past week it was wet, but today it soaked through my shoes. I guess it is a trade off for the nice temperatures. We haven't had any temperatures in the 80's here. Like Blizz said - mostly 60's with sun burning off clouds around 4-5pm

I just hope we don't get a correction come April or May.

Hi Listener, I too think you won't be seeing 110F this summer. Mother Nature tends to correct herself in the long run! I think our "cool down" will start this weekend and last all next week at least when temps. return closer to normal highs. But we sure have had some run with these way above normal temps. It was nice they came in Feb,/March, and not in July/August(atleast I hope it corrects itself by July/August!)


I'm not sure we can judge the future by the past anymore. But do hope on!!


The high temperature at Burlington International Airport in
Burlington reached 81 degrees. This is a new record high
temperature for March 22nd. The previous record high temperature
for the date was 68 degrees which was set in 1938.

The high temperature at Mount Mansfield reached 65 degrees. This
is a new record high temperature for March 22nd. The previous
record high temperature for the date was 49 degrees which was set
in 1979.

“Canadian cities break all-time April record for warmth, in March”

Not only was yesterday the warmest March day in recorded history for many of Canada's major cities, it was also warmer than any April day at St. John, New Brunswick. The city hit 78F. Not only did this crush the record high for March (previous record: 64F), it is well above any temperature ever measured in April (extreme April temperature on record: 73F.) As of 1 pm today, Halifax was at 81F, beating their all-time April record of 79F. Other major cities in Canada that set all-time warmest March records yesterday included Ottawa (81F), Montreal (78F), Windsor (82F), Hamilton (78F), London (80F), and Fredericton (81F).


Unholy Moly!!
I believe it, too, because the same has been happening here in NW VT.

maxed at 84 today. little closer to normal on its way. i think we will generally remain above normal through spring but will continue to come more in line with average temps as we near summer. continued dry northern midatl to ne.

sorry for the type. on a tablet


I'm keenly interested: What gives you the view that temps will moderate come Summer? I dislike anything above 80F and we've had temps higher than 80F this week. Please give me some reason to hope I won't be enduring 110F this Summer!

Here in NW VT we've had fog too!

And 80's and now we're under a Fire Weather Warning...!

I can hardly take it in that it's March 22nd ~ when we are usually seeing the mountain snows melt such that rivers overflow onto fields ~ and we're under a Fire Weather Warning, and there is no snow left on the mountains...!!

Pcroton, I maxed out at 78F today, maybe, Stamford being alittle closer to the water kept it down aliitle from your reading.

Low clouds still here with mid 60s, been like this all week. Ground is very dry, but air is extremely damp.


The dew in the morning on the grass has been extremely wet. Every time I take my dog outside we come in completely wet. The grass doesn't dry until the afternoon. I don't recall this that often

Hi all! I'm in Texas near Houston, where it's been raining and chilly the past couple of days. They've recovered a bit from the drought conditions, which is very good to see.

We're near a lake which was completely drained to bring water to the city. Water levels are back up now, but the water issues are pretty severe. I didn't realize things were so bad they were draining lakes for drinking water. Needless to say, I've been very conservative with my own water usage.

It's interesting how the larger weather patterns play out one way in one region and a totally different way in another. Disturbing when extremes threaten our lives and property. The people living on this lake saw their docks and marinas fall apart when the lake lost its water. I've been hearing about water becoming scarce out west, but it's really different to see the problem close up.

New England has been getting the brunt of the heat in the east with low 80s up through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. It is amazing how warm it is up there and quickly ending their ski season.



You can sure say that again! Not only has it been in the 80's, but our blood is still relatively thick from Winter, so it feels all the hotter. YUK!!

In just THREE DAYS our daffodils have gone from emerging from the ground to up and having buds! We have crocuses in bloom and (here's the really scary part) the lilac buds are opening and you can see the tiny leaves. Not good so soon!!
