Welcome! This site is dedicated to following my weather interest, along with featuring some seasonal photos from around Etters. The actual weather data, from this station on Weather Underground, is found by clicking on the blue weather icon below.
Etters —a mostly rural area in York County, is located across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital. As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern. Henry Etter became the first post master. It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name. (Information obtained from Goldsboro post office documents.)

Back to it after being gone a couple of weeks in FL. Didn't get much rain while gone, either, still below normal. Think I heard about 3" short now. Varies by area, typically this area seems to get less than some other areas. A friend who raises vegetables for sale locally has mentioned this to me too.
Not much rain chances coming up this week either. Some differences in forecast after this Sunday, mostly in cloud cover. Right now Memorial Day forecasts range from cloudy to partly sunny, and warmer. Memorial Day week looks warm, at least mid to upper 80's, with increasing humidity. Will feel like summer again. Enjoy!
