  1. My back yard is a hot spot...maybe because the sun reflects off the pool which is near the probe? It was 97 yesterday and 95 today...I put my trusty Taylor max min that was calibrated next to it and it was even hotter...
  2. Staten Island can be as hot as Newark and many times like today mby was as hot as they were...I never liked the radiation shields used now...I think the old weather box's or shelters gave a lower reading...That's just a theory on my part...the only way to test my theory is to set up a shelter and shield side by side with calibrated thermometers and see what happens...
  3. NYC hit a high of 51 today...if it stands it will tie a record low max for so late in the season... below is the standard record low max's from late April to mid June... 38 on 4/29/1874 43 on 5/05/1891 44 on 5/09/1977 46 on 5/25/1967 47 on 5/27/1961 51 on 5/29/1884 52 on 6/04/1945 55 on 6/13/1982

  5. May 9th 1977 and last year on May 9th snow flakes were seen in NYC...1945 was the other time snow was recorded but it was in the 40's the day it was reported...1977 and 2020 was legit snow...
  6. Still working on the train set. The eye operation was a big set back...this is what it looks like now...
  7. May can be a Jekyll Hyde month...May 1963 started with temps in the 30's with a little snow in some places...a few days later it was 85 degrees...May 1977 had some snow and temps in the mid 30's...a week later it was in the 90's...I've seen days in the 80's that were followed with rain and temps in the 40's the next day...this year could be cold again but that's only a guess on my part...
  8. last April and first half of May was just as cold with snow on May 10th...the Summer was warm...
  9. rained nicely for a while but its stopped for now...temperatures in the low and mid 40's this time of year is normal...nothing close to the lows of mid April 2014 when it snowed and sleeted a half inch...back in 1950 NYC got 2" of snow after they hired a rain maker to end a drought... 1950... http://bklyn.newspap...image/52910802/ http://bklyn.newspap.../image/52911107 1950...city hires rain maker... http://www.nytimes.com/1999/07/06/nyregion/wallace-e-howell-84-dies-famed-rainmaker-in-drought.html
