WXJ 42 NWR Transmitter 162.400 MW 1027 utc 21 Apr 2020

Excellent reception on T/O 7000 from West Peak (1,025'), Meriden, CT - the highest traprock peak in state.  Fifteen airmiles from me.  This is less for the accomplishment of receiving the broadcast but rather the bizarreness of the day's forecast.  Ah, April in New England.

1028 ID, Frequency, broadcast originates from Upton, NY
1030 Two warnings for Northern Middlesex County, from 5pm-2am: Severe wind warning gusts over 50mph, gusty winds could blow around unsecured items, high temperature near 60.  Thunderstorms with heavy rain, hail this afternoon.  Tonight, frost warning from 11p-9am, temperatures will result in frost formation.  Sensitive plants will be killed, outdoor plumbing should be drained.
