Early Sign?

This is something I’ve not seen for a few years: early autumn foliage peppered in some of the maple trees as well as some trees showing an early drop signature under its canopy.

Hurricanes Discussed

Many of you know how blessed I was to have learned under my former college professor (and co-founder of The Weather Channel) Dr. Joe D’Aleo. He was the department chairman of the meteorology program at then Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, Vermont (now University of Northern Vermont) in the 1970s.

Dr. D’Aleo is still very active in meteorology via WeatherBell.com as well as television programs produced in southern New Hampshire. His most recent program is Part 2 on east coast hurricanes. I highly recommend it. Joining Dr. D’Aleo on his panel include former Weather Channel colleague Herb Stevens along with Joe and Matt Bastardi.

Holiday Weekend

The upcoming Memorial Day weekend is beginning to come into clearer focus. No single day will be a washout, but there will be ample thunderstorms rolling about the radar screen to stay on your toes both Saturday, and especially Sunday if you have outdoor plans. Memorial Day Monday is currently looking like the best day of the three.

As Clear As Fog

The fog has been a persistent feature in the last 12 hours or so. As I made my usual stop at the post office on my way home from work on Friday night, I had a strong deja vu moment that made me stop in my tracks, look around, and take it all in.

Growing up on the coast of New England, fog was a somewhat common meteorological staple. Even as a youngster growing up, I liked fog. It was as if we were getting a cozy hug from the atmosphere. I thought I knew what fog was until I moved to my college campus home in Lyndonville, Vermont on September 3, 1977.

One of my last duties for my hometown radio station, WBSM-AM, was to fill in for John Parisi, who took Labor Day week off. That meant I had to wake at 5 a.m. that week, make my way to the “met lab,” and call in a weather forecast for the morning listeners. What did I wake to every single morning? Fog. It was so thick that pea soup would have been considered broth. The fog was so thick, it was downright spooky. I was expecting a zombie to reach out and grab me as I made my way to the student center. I quickly learned that nocturnal fog develops nearly every night in Vermont and New Hampshire in September and early October… and it’s THICK, yes, thicker than the coastal fog I grew up seeing often.

Tonight’s fog wasn’t as thick as the fog I experienced every autumn for four years, but the student center is where the student mailboxes were… and I was at the post office… thus the fun trip back to a special time in my life.

Alaska Storm

A snowstorm in late April? Easy if it’s in Alaska. There is a Winter Storm Warning for Fairbanks for Tuesday. Some spots will see 3-9″ of snow with winds gusting over 50 m.p.h.

Here is the popular 30-minute Alaska TV weather program that goes into great depth on almost every aspect of Alaska life. It’s from Easter Sunday:

Here is a live feed from a camera in Fairbanks (hit REFRESH to see latest image). It will be interesting to see the snowfall once it begins.

Tax Day Snowpack

As Sunday’s system retreats off the east coast, we can easily see who has snow on the ground and who doesn’t!
