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.

Here are previous posts with references to wind. Sunday and Monday were windy but commerce went right on.
The weight of these units is manifested by the smooth ride in the harbor chop. Offshore it would be a different matter in the swells.
I wouldn’t call it spindrift, so maybe
it’s just spray?

And finally, thanks to Isaac Pennock, who caught Dylan Cooper down bound passing Detroit on a run between Green Bay and Montreal.
Here was number 6 in this series. It occurred to me this afternoon to rename the whole series “weather overwater,” as a tip of the hat to Dr. Jeff Masters and his site. His 18-minute TED talk at the link with his name on it is worth the 18 minutes. And what do you imagine happens on and over sixth boro water on a day like this . . . ?
Cheyenne consolidates scrap,
Susana S, in the same location here a year ago, takes on bunkers. . .
. . . along with Stavanger Breeze.
Fishing goes on, and pilots
do their thing no matter the weather since 1694.
More bad weather coming . . . so what. Not that it’s easy, though.
Lightering from Ocean Chariot onto The Patriot goes on uninterrupted by the brisk wind out of the north . . . gusts to 20 mph . . . . It’s just another
day on the sixth boro. Stavanger Bell gets a call from the Miller service boat. In the background skyline, note the “V” shaped twin cranes . . . . yup . . . . that’s the current height of building at One World Trade Center.
Here are two other shots of Stavanger Bell with Scott C (?)
Also at anchor, Genmar Concord awaits a provisioning visit from
the unique, the peerless, the siblingless Twin Tube.

Fog . . . it’s fickle, patchy, and blinding. Even with radar, I imagine it causes stress. Count the tugboats below. Follow the lights and you get two: Patapsco and Wicomico from right to left. Easter morning 645 am at IMTT.
Same place, 745. I think the vessel is Maryland.
Same location. 800 am. Meagan Ann, whom you saw here in snow now just barely a month ago. Fog forms in warm land air (75 Sunday) over cold water.
Patapsco over by LaFarge silos (now fog-shortened) near Hess Bayonne, as seen from IMTT. 830 am. Note: Hess Bayonne is less than a mile to the east of IMTT, where earlier fotos were taken.
Eastbound Ivory Coast at IMTT. 900 am.
Westbound Ivory Coast, near Hess Bayonne, at 930 am, half an hour later than the previous shot.
Eastbound Stephen Scott, near Hess Bayonne, around 940.
Westbound tanker Ionian Wave, escorted by Brendan Turecamo just before 1000. Note the Monitor-like appearance of the Staten Island ferry.
