# Thread: How's The Weather There ?

1. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Hi everyone,

Happy Solar Quarter Point Day!

Today, the suns' angle at noon is 25% of its range above minimum at noon, in the northern hemisphere. That means that today is the first day of Astronomical Spring. One more month from now, on March 21st, the suns' angle will be at the 50% point, halfway high in the sky at noon, the middle of Astronomical Spring.

Notice that the quarter point is not halfway between the lowest point, at Dec. 21st and the halfway point, at March 21st, time-wise. The quarter point occurs two thirds of the way past the lowest point and one third of the way to the halfway point, because the arcsine of 0.50 is 30 degrees, not 45 degrees. That is, the sine function is not linear. With a linear function, a certain amount increase on the X axis results in the same percentage increase on the Y axis. Not so with non-linear functions. 25% increase on the X axis with the sine function does not equate to a 25% increase on the Y axis.

Low 80's with wind, so fate didn't miss a beat:

Saw that, they think is was the result of a homeless encampment.

Today is April 21st, one third of the way from March 21st to June 21st. That means that for the northern hemisphere, north of the tropic of cancer, and south of the arctic circle, the solar angle is three-quarters (75%) of the way from the lowest on December 21st to the highest on June 21st.

So, for those of us who are located at a latitude from 23 1/2 degrees to 66 1/2 degrees latitude, this is the end of Astronomical spring and the beginning of Astronomical summer. After four more months, the four month long Astronomical summer will end, and the two month long Astronomical Autumn will begin on September 21st.

Because the arcsine of 1/2 is not 45 degrees, but instead is 30 degrees, the top quadrille of daily average temperatures occur in a four month period, and the second and third quadrille of daily average temperatures each occur in a two month period. Four months for Astronomical winter, too. So, if it seems that middle range temperatures occur only one sixth of the time, twice a year for a total of one third of the year, that is because that is what actually happens for people who are located between the tropic of cancer and the arctic circle. Lowest quadrille temperatures occur one-third of the year, and highest quadrille temperatures occur one-third of the year, due to the sinusoidal, not linear change of the annual solar angle.

Btw, today's weather around mid afternoon ranged from partly wintry through springy to partly summery.

Whatever you call this season, it snowed here today in the mountains of NH, April 22.

87 today, mid 90's for the weekend. First heatwave of the year.
Lots of lizards and little critters out and about.

20oC and sunny , blue skies and set for the weekend in manchester . Been nice ever since the lockdown, I am sure lack of pollution is playing it’s part and helping!

Another blue sky morning.
Have a nice weekend all.

Good weather - a big cloud of about 10 km by 4 km emitted lightning for 6 hours, I have not seen this since 1992. It was last night, lasted about 6 hours.

Today was 110F. It is 20:00 and is 98F. Kept the A/C at our usual 71F.

18. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Somebody turned on the sauna here.

My boss was 2 states away and asked what the weather was like. I replied "like the Florida Keys"……she asked when I'd been there. I said "never, because I hear it's just like it is here today and I don't want to be here if it's like there and I don't to be there if it is like it is here"……"and there the bugs are big enough to strap wheels on and ride? Nope aint going there."
It was double 86 here today. 86 degrees and 86% humidity. Normal for July here, but when it's been 60 and breezes out of the north then double 86 suddenly. Heat stroke time.

19. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Hit 100 and hung there for some time today

20. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Raining now. But it was nice out for most of the day. Never even got that thunderstorm we were promised.

21. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

The 3 H's of June:
Hazy, Hot, Humid

22. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Misty New England day in the mountains of New Hampshire. Much needed though as it hasn't rained in over 3 weeks. Good for the plants, shrubs & trees I planted a couple of weeks ago.

Rained, tiny bit of thunder, and now followed up with a day of humidity.

24. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

It rained this morning but the sun appeared in the afternoon. Dried out the lawn enough to get in the midweek mow. It's currently 66 degrees and 64% humidity.

A perfect Pacific Northwest day.

Looks beautiful.

Sun rose here awhile ago. Foggier outside than 19th Century London night however.

That just sounds bad...are you keeping hydrated? At first thought that sounds like heat exhaustion/ heat stroke!! Have you gotten checked out? How rare you feeling today?

28. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

Surprisingly pleasant. Not too hot at all today or yesterday.

29. ## Re: How's The Weather There ?

+

Dewpoint 74°F (23°C)
I'll take -20F windchill over a Dewpoint of 74°F any day.

HELL!
