January 11th, 2006---: The past few weeks here in NYC haven't been that bad at all! I hope this continues for at least a little while longer. No major snow events, and above average temps...I can get used to this. While some rain is on the way for later this evening and into tonight, tomorrow is looking to be another April like day here in the city. Temps are forecast to be around the 60 degree mark under partly cloudy skies. This coming Sunday looks right now to be the day where things go back to normal for this time of year. But even so, a forecast high on Sunday of 38 degrees isn't bad at all!

January 31st, 2006---: And the above average temperatures continue! This past month has been great as far as temps go, we've been above average pretty much the entire month. And now that we're heading into February, the above average temps will continue, all though it will be a bit unsettled. No complaints though, I'll take the rain anyday over the snow. Yesterday in Central Park we reached a high of 64 degrees, I actually had to take my coat off and tie it around my waist. There's still plenty of time for us to return to more winter like conditions here in NYC, but every week that goes by that we're above average, is one more week closer to Spring.

February 10th, 2006---: It's looking more and more like the possibility of a major blizzard here in the NYC area will materialize. Guess we're going to have to pay for all the warm weather of late. The snow is expected to start falling in my area tomorrow afternoon and will become heavier as the evening progresses. Depending on where the heavier bands of snow set up will determine our final snowfall tally. Right now we're looking at anywhere between 6 and 12 inches total, but that can easily change. More updates to follow!

February 12th, 2006---: Ok....WOW!! NYC just experienced it's worst blizzard on record! The old record which was 26.4 inches in Central Park back on December 26th/27th, 1947 is now history. The new record set this afternoon is 26.9 inches. And here I thought we were just going to get a run of the mill snowstorm! I have also been shooting time lapse video of this storm since 4pm yesterday afternoon and will post that video soon as well.

June 26th, 2006---: Been a while since my last update on this page. Now that summer is here there will be more posts as our weather usually becomes more active. So far we haven't experienced many days with active severe weather, well....I should say that there were several days of active severe weather in the Tri State area, but nothing made it to the coast where I live. The past few days have been warm & humid with plenty of rain. This unsettled pattern will last throughout the week and possibly into next weekend. Over the last two days my area in Queens, NY has received over an inch and a half of rain. This is nothing compared to what Washington, D.C. has gotten. Parts of the D.C. area are completely under water!

July 27th, 2006---: And here another month has gone by. Over the past few weeks NYC has experienced some pretty hardcore heatwaves! Along with the heat came power outages here in Queens, and a nasty round of thunderstorms that hit the area last Friday the 21st. The first round came in around 9am and we got round after round from that point on. The storms didn't let up until around 8pm that evening! What a great day it was, you don't see that too often around here so I was on cloud 9!!! And once again, we are in for another heatwave starting today. Temps this afternoon are in the mid 80's with dewpoints around 75! WOW, talk about humid as hell!! The temps are going to be going up and by Saturday our forecast high might reach the century mark. There is also the possibility of storms tomorrow, but that pesky marine layer might squash any activity from making it to the coast. We will see.

October 12th, 2006---: This page has been quiet the past few months, and why?.....because nothing at all has been going on..lol. Yes, there were a few days where we had some nice thunderstorms roll through the area, but overall.....2006 will end up being a quiet year. Today we're experiencing temps in the upper 60's under partly cloudy skies, tomorrow however we're in for a big cool down! Temps Friday night will be in the upper 30's to low 40's, fall is here!

December 28th, 2006---: Another year has come and gone. And this page has been quiet the past few months once again...why...well nothing has been going on..lol. Overall we've escaped any artic outbreaks thus far, and you'll hear no complaints from me! November and December have been relatively warm, with only two very cold days at the beginning of the month where temperatures topped out in the upper 20's. And, for the first time in a very long time, we haven't even had so much as a flurry of snow in December. What will January have in store for us? Time will tell. But with a new year just about on top of us, my thoughts will once again shift to the spring, and tornado season. Happy New Year everyone!
