Posted April 30th, 2006 by Matt Lanza. 9 comments

Another spectacular day for Monday! Highs got to 72 today, and I think we'll meet or maybe even exceed that tomorrow. Yesterday I blogged about the uncertainty for midweek. Still, that exists, but I think things are a little clearer now: Tuesday: Sunshine with some extra clouds, especially east of Utica.... Continue reading…

In terms of the forecast, it looks like the next day or two will be absolutely delightful. Bright sunshine without a cloud in sight tomorrow and a mostly sunny day on Monday. It's _after_ Monday where things get interesting. We're watching an interesting weather feature out in the Atlantic Ocean this... Continue reading…

Last week, Matt Lanza and myself had the pleasure of attending Media Day at the National Weather Service in Binghamton. One of the topics discussed was the Skywarn program.

Red Flag Warnings...

We've certainly enjoyed the sunshine and mild temperatures for the past few days, but there's a downside to this beautiful weather. Things are looking pretty dry out there. The sunny conditions today, combined with gusty winds and very low humidity levels have led to an increased threat... Continue reading…

Looking at stuff today makes me wonder when we're going to see this nice weather return after this week. Often times in spring you get a very stagnant weather pattern set up where you get locked in cool, unsettled conditions (take last May for instance). And that appears to be... Continue reading…

Hope everyone that celebrated had a wonderful Easter. Looking ahead at the upcoming week. It will take a little time, but we should bust out of this cooler air mass over us now, yet again. Believe it or not, the air we have over us now is normal for this... Continue reading…

You can access these pictures "here.":http://www.flickr.com/photos/toadaway/sets/72057594107078357/ They are amazing to view. Continue reading…

More on last night's severe weather

Posted April 15th, 2006 by Matt Lanza. 5 comments

One thing meteorologists do, and I think this is common practice for every single one of us, is that we are always following the current weather if it's significant. Whether we're off, tired, busy, etc...we are always on top of the current situation. I glanced at radar on a whim... Continue reading…

Our weather certainly has been pleasant for the past few days, with temperatures above average for this time of year. A weak disturbance moved through this afternoon & evening, and it did manage to spark some severe weather just off to our south and west. There was... Continue reading…
First off, for our own weather, it looks like another blast of winter is going to arrive here on Friday night. Expect temperatures to tumble from about 50 Friday afternoon, to near 30 or lower Saturday morning. The steady rain we have on Friday will end in the evening, so... Continue reading…
