Hey I asked you what you use to record your temperatures, because I'm curious to know. Is it a nearby station or do you use a personal one?

Whoops, sorry, didn't see that.

I use a personal weather station, from Oregon Scientific (cheaper then Davis Vantage Pro2). Shielded properly in a homemade Stevenson screen, so might be off by a few points of a degree but I think the results are fairly accurate.. I only record weather as a hobby however.

Same with me, my records still aren't accurate enough for anything more than that. My Davis would be fine but I think because of my garden it over reads minimum temperatures by about 1C which is a source of perpetual bother.

The next few days look to be relatively cool (48-58), with showers on Saturday. It's supposed to heat back up to the 70s on Monday.
Hmm. There was a thunderstorm last week too in NW NJ, but maybe it was very localized.

Had some loud boomers today in CT too. Hail fell in Danbury, CT and Dutchess county, NY. Lightning was vivid. There was a cell with 60dbz returns. Intense.

Here;s the radar at 11:55am. I usually dont see these until June.

Saw a couple of mosquitoes today, and I can see a little bit of grass in my yard. 45F and sunny, and supposed to be about the same for the next couple of days; it's slush city out there. This afternoon a coworker was injured when an 8ft pile of heavy, wet snow fell on him. Snow's more dangerous when it's warm than when it's cold.

US National Weather Service Caribou ME

9am today
Well, after the record breaking warmth of last week it's hard to believe that snow is on the way for portions of our forecast area. An area of low pressure will move southeast from western Quebec today and then move east of the region tonight and Thursday. The graphic below shows how much snow you can expect in your area.

8pm today
...Snow continues this evening...
The image you see in previous post below is the latest forecast snowfall amounts from the NWS in Caribou for this event. So far we had reports of 1.5 inches in Presque Isle with 1 to 2 inches down across southern Piscataquis County. Less than an inch here at the office. How much snow have you received so far? Let us know. We will be updating things throughout the evening

Again...I never and hate to use HPC percentage guidance cause its not accurate but this is fun to see going into April.

Chance of snow of more than 1". HPC Probabilistic Snowfall Guidance for Days 1-3

And just like I said with Tornadoes and Hail, they'll show 40% and the severe weather always happens.

You can change the accumulation amount with the link.

Should be a very pleasant day. Temperature in the 50s with a refreshing breeze.

Today was the 8th 20C+ day in a row.
With 10 20C+ days, this March now holds the record, far ahead March 2003 (7 20C+ days).
The vegetation is crazy right now, daffodils are out togother with the first leaves, and everything that should normally come up inbetween.



The party will soon be over, let's see if the thriving nature likes it.
