Well, we made it through our first real snow of the season – the official total thus far at the airport was 2.3″, which means today’s snow was more than four times the previous total for the entire winter thus far.
After a pretty snow-starved winter, we finally have a few chances for snow in the forecast. Nothing huge, and if this were last year or the year before, it would be merely a blip on our colelctive radar, but for those who have been patiently awaiting the arrival of ANY snow, it will be welcome.
We’ve been enjoying some pretty fantastic weather across the Delaware Valley lately, but that looks like it might change this week as a much more active pattern begins to develop over the Northeast.
We continue to track the potential for a coastal storm this weekend, and now the information is all starting to agree that the storm will be happening.
By now, everybody has heard about the potential for a coastal storm on Saturday afternoon that COULD bring parts of our area the first snowflakes of the season. We will update as things become more clear but just wanted to send an email detailing our current thinking.
On Monday, the city of Denver, CO hit a record high of 80 degrees with abundant sunshine. The forecast for Wednesday? 34 degrees with heavy snow. Imagine going from summer to winter within the span of a day!
As of 5 o’clock this morning, Hurricane Irene was downgraded to a Category 2 storm with winds averaging 110 mph. This is a very large storm, with tropical storm force winds extending almost 300 miles from the storm’s center, and the outer bands of showers were reaching eastern Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas Friday morning.
At this point, my feeling is that our entire area needs to prepare for heavy rainfall and the threat for tropical storm-force winds, even perhaps hurricane-force gusts, especially down the shore.
So now that we’ve officially had the hottest July on record and the wettest August on record, the chatter in the newsroom on Friday turned to – what’s September going to bring us?!

Last year, as we know, was a record-setting year for days above the 90 degree mark and the 4th of July was no different – we hit 96 last year, went on to 98 the following day, and then “enjoyed” two straight days in the triple digits! That’s the kind of heat where you just want to relax in a nice pool filled with ice cubes!
