Just read that Mt St. Helens just had its second largest earthquake today since its eruption and ironically it was on Valentines day 1981! 30 Aftershocks!

http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-no..._30_years.html

So off the top of my head, the list of activity increasing is now:

Japan Shinmoedake Volcano (smoke rising)
Iceland Bardarbunga (Lava Rising)
N. Korea Mt. Baekdu
and now Mt. St. Helen Earthquake activity.

All just this year.

Front coming through. It will help cool things down alot tonight and Tue...but it will be brief. From Wed onward the southerly flow will get even stronger. They think some stations around the Tri-State could crack 60 F on Friday

~ Slighter Bigger storm on Tuesday like I been saying for 2 weeks now. Its flip flopping between cold and warm, at this moment its rain, to ice to snow on backend. I think Hartford, Tolland & Windham have best chance at 2-4" right now.

~ Bigger storm on 27th, 28th and 1st..Rain to snow as Artic air comes back down.

Just a note: Even at all snow for the last storm, it would mean 6-8" and I think we all can handle that now a days. lol .. Timing is crucial on this storm. Still too far..
Well...after looking at some different senarios for the March 1st storm, let me present you with the most extreme, worst case for now...Keep in mind we're so far away from this storm that things will change so many times...

But here's something I found which caught my eye on the March 1st storm... The run from last nights 0z.

#1. I was right about it being big.
#2. This particular run shows snowstorm for us. At 1 inch qpf thats 10-14"

But again...dont worry, its 14 days away...I'll let you enjoy this quiet week for now..

That blue line is the 0degree line. Some say the rain/snow line but there's other factors to consider also. 984mb Low is pretty strong. Blues indicate 1"+ moisture

Most almost got to 60 yesterday as well (Newark actually went over 60!).

Yea, I did see that later. Hartford hit 55 F and I think Atlantic City hit 64 F. Once this cool shot fades today, the southelry flow will get even stronger in the coming days. I think even 70 F is an outside shot in the city and maybe central NJ. Interior southern Connecticut should see 60 - 62 F. We'll see.

It's nice to use up late winter days with warm weather

Well most carbon based life prefers sunny 50 to 90 F weather…rather than 15 F windchills, tundra snow, and cloudy skies.

I hope you are not one of those winter fans who get depressed near the end of winter (a reversed SAD?) I think they call it MADD.

HAha...I live in North Carolina so I dont have to worry about that as it stays pretty moderate. Na..when summer comes I go north as much as I can. We still get the seasons here..thank goodness. How anyone could live in Florida is BEYOND me. Oh and 50-70 I agree with 90???? NO...most people hate hot weather especially males. You are different.
