The 7-online chat board was the first site I followed for weather. I myself never posted there, but I did learn a lot from NJ WeatherGuy and the other mets. It's a shame the moderators there could not control all the "trolling" that was going on over there especially in the end. That was the chatroom's ultimate demise.

In terms of Hermine, tracking it was a nightmare, models did terrible, shockingly, imo the CMC and NAVGEM did best... and I've NEVER seen a tropical cyclone meander at this latitude like this, moved like 50-100mi in the past day, but Im also young, some old timers feel free to chime in. Feel like storms are always quick to get up and out of here, even extratropical winter storms forecasted to stall.

Speaking of road trips, after much research i took your advise and will be joining Extreme Tornado Tours for tour#3 April 29th- May 5th - hoping for an active week this coming Spring! I know Reed's wife Maria just enrolled in grad school in Michigan going for her PhD, but hopefully he will make a guest appearance!

....Here's how frustrating the weather is and why so many people hate/don't care to follow it.

I "tracked" Hermine for 5 to 6 days prior to it making it's approach to us where I then closely followed it and radar trends for another 4 days. All along I was hoping for a soaking rain which is much needed around here. (and for my fall mushroom foraging. It's just about peak season but too dry) These 9 to 10 days of tracking and hoping for rain ended up with 12 hours of a steady drizzle. Then today out of nowhere and completely unexpected and not forecast (20% chance) we go from not a cloud in the sky at 5:00 p.m to .78" in the bucket by 6:30. Shocked Shocked ...
I repeat what my old Italian family members always say. "Ma Jimmy, stopa watching the stupid weather. Deesa people no understand nothing. When you look outta da window you will see whatsa happening"

I made HRRR graphics and a page and it is now on vortex. We are having a few issues ingesting data and that's why you see the "No contour data" message(its the default for missing data).
http://vortex.plymouth.edu/fx/hrrr/
Lots of updating still going on....a work in progress.

When was the last time we've had two bad winters in a row? I know we've had a few good ones in a row in the past, but can't recall having to bad ones back to back. I mean bad as in, usually mild and pretty snowless.

So since we may have an active winter, most likely a backended one, I thought about getting these for my 81 year old Mom's house. Anyone have these or have any experience with them?

Meteorologist Joe Cioffi just gave a shoutout to Tom (Isotherm)'s website... showing the snowfall maps for NJ over the years. Tom, expect your site traffic to tick up some!

Leaves are changing pretty rapidly, and the amount of daylight is dropping quickly. Sunrise 6:36. Sunset 6:43 today but the sun goes behind the mountains quite earlier(In the winter it can begin hiding behind the mountains near 3pm).

Currently updating our regional products. Surface temps was done quite a while back yet we still have DP, wind chill, heat index, and regional station data to do. I did Dp this morning...I may have to turn station density down a bit....lots of overlapping station sin Montreal, NYC area. Yet if I turn it down to much I lose coverage, lose lose I guess.
