I wanted to start a thread for the unseasonable chill that we have experienced here in the Northeast, rather than simply posting in the latest storm thread and long-range spring 2012 thread. Here in Binghamton, NY, we may be looking at our first daily record low temperature since June 30, 2010 by this weekend (the only record low all decade to date was that one in June 2010).

Down here in the Southern Mid Atlantic, temps were about normal yesterday and should get there today if the sun finds its way out. A little cooler for the weekend and then it looks like Spring/Summer rearrives in the middle of next week.

Agreed...hopefully all pans out as antisipated and this will end up being the last weeked of "Chilly" weather, because it's time for sustained "Warm" weather baby tongue.gif

Here's how the daily data looks for Hartford & Bridgeport, CT last 4 days. Today should look similar. Kinda surprised the night lows are more normal but the day highs are below.

As of 8 PM, it is 34 degrees at the Greater Binghamton Airport. We only have to drop six degrees to reach the record low for today (28 in 2002) and tomorrow (28 in 2004). Our 22-month record low temperature drought may be over very soon. (BTW, our longest record high temperature drought was 15-plus months, from Oct. 31, 2003 to Feb. 6, 2005).

Washington DC's record low at DCA is 38 and we've got a shot. It's currently 54 as we've dropped off a tad slower than it could have but that should speed up in the next hour or two. Further north where the core of the cold air is..yikes!!

We had our first daily record low temperature since June 2010, when the minimum reached 26 degrees. In addition, it was our coldest day this late in the spring since the late 1970s. We have a chance at record lows both tomorrow and Monday morning, which means we may be looking at our first multi-record low month since July 2009, which coincided with our Adirondack vacation.

We can put an end date on this cool spell--May 1 would be the end date. BTW, if we end up having a similar length of time between record lows as the one between June 30, 2010 and today, we will have to wait until Feb. 25, 2014. LOL! 2011 was the first year in history with no record low temperatures in our area.

We might see a return of the trough in East as models starting to hint.

I'm starting to believe the "normal" or "slightly" above normal temps later this week will be temporary.

Euro has 12z 850 Temp anomalies May 8th.
