Here are previous weather posts, and although today the sixth boro and surrounding land masses are experiencing the first serious snowfall this season, this post is not about that. Rather, it’s about something I saw and felt yesterday, when it was 65 degrees F for a few midday hours. 65!!
So here was the weather phenomenon photo taken at 0834. I take it that’s a squall line, but it seemed so isolated.
Here was the scene at 0826. CMA CGM Amber headed into Port Elizabeth with JRT on the stern quarter. Tomorrow I’ll have more Moran photos. Notice how clear and calm it was right at the bridge, although Elizabethport seems enveloped in some mist.
0827 . . . shows HMS Justice in that mist.
So here I repeat the 0834 photo of that line moving rapidly in my direction.
Here’s 0840 and
below, 0841, as Jonathan C escorted CMA CGM Georgia around Bergen Point to Port Eliz. Notice the dull finish on the Bayonne Bridge, since that squall line has obscured the morning sun at my back. The temperature also dropped noticeably.
At 0846, besides Jonathan C, we can now see (l to r) Jennifer Turecamo with barge Portland, James D., and Miriam.
By 0922 my back was nicely warmed by the sun again, with the temperatures heading to a blue sky 65 in February, although Elizabeth seemed still misted in.
All photos taken on February 8 by Will Van Dorp. Did anyone else see and feel this front move through?
