I love it when the barometer reading shows up red… always means something’s going on.

It’s been raining all morning as a small low (975mb) tracks north just off the coast.

There’s another fairly strong (965mb) low comin’ at us from out in the blue… its front should be here by the end of the weekend.

Keep the good times rollin.

Update: Whoa, look at that barometer graph it’s like we ran up a hill and jumped off the cliff. That low is at 959.9mb… we”ll see if it deepens anymore (was forecast to go down to 958mb) and how cloes it gets to us.. keep your eye on that graph.

  1. I think I broke the US Navy Water Vapor Satellite animations.

    A few minutes ago I tried to select all the images they had and run the animation at Medium size… it seemed to stop responding. And now the “Animate” link is gone on their website.

    Heeeehheeee. Ooops!

  2. Chris,

    Christmas & News Years in your PA was a lot of fun. Meeting you and your daughter was a treat. North Port had a nice white Christmas – not a lot but just enough to make it feel like my home PA. – When I left home(before christmas) we had 2 feet of the white stuff – while I was there in Port it had melted but by the time I got home ole mother nature dumped a new 20 inches on new years eve and day here for the new year. Same ole same ole in my PA.

    Mike
