Welcome! This site is dedicated to following my weather interest, along with featuring some seasonal photos from around Etters. The real weather data is found from the links below. The weather station is on Weather Underground, and can be seen 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.)
After 1.15" of rain yesterday, now back to sunshine, but cold! It looks like some decent weather ahead as it will be warming back to the 60's. Love the green grass of April!
We start with an average high of 57 degrees (11 above March ), and end up at 68 degrees (12 more than at the end of March). It has been as warm as 93, and as cold as 11 . The average temperature goes up a degree about every 3 days. And the record snowfall is 18.0"!!!
Right now the first half looks fairly normal, highest upper sixties, and lowest in the mid thirties. Rain most likely around the 7th, and then around the 15th.
Looking back at March -
Temperatures were considerably below normal again, with the average of the high and low coming in 5.1 degrees below normal, almost as bad as February (5.8 below normal). The average high was 46.0, the average low was 27.2. Highest temperature was 67 on the 11th, got down to 12 twice, on the 1st, and the 4th. A far cry from 2012, when the average temperature was almost 15 degrees higher than this March!
Heating degree days were 151 above normal, with 874 for the month. For the season, now 5,218, 507 more than average.
Snowfall was below normal, only 1.3". Why did it seem like more? Rain was above normal by .51" at 3.88". 2.02" of it came on the 30th.

More of these now and it looks like our snow birds, the Juncos, have finally gone North.
