Cold rain and snow? Here comes sunshine?
What's Mother Nature up to at your house?
How about it's -2 with a wind chill of -9 here in CT.
A town just east of me was featured on the news tonight with a low of -29. It was fun picking my wife up from the auto repair shop after midnight last night. She must have thought it was a swell time for a night out. When she arrived back to the car in the parking lot, it would not start and the hood latch was frozen. Awesome! Will try out the new snowshoes Wednesday if it's not so windy...I love Wisconsin.
If you saw the movie, the weather pattern this year, while not so extreme, is still reminiscent of the major theme of global weather shift. Breakouts of Arctic air from the polar regions due to ocean temps being warmer than normal.
I don't think the idea is to study this new polar vortex for the best way for corporations to exploit it, rather, even ice breakers seem powerless to break out scientific research ships from the polar regions.
Couple this with the lack of snowfall in the Sierra and you can see a catastrophic winter lining up. I hope Jon Stewart has a glib expert or two in this week to expand on the current evolving crisis...
we hit our high today of -12F. Looking forward to tomorrow's radiant glow of 2F above. These wind chills are the coldest I've ever experienced.
Keeping almost warm indoors this morning as the mercury hovers around -6 in Kansas. Stay warm, my friends.
It has been a brutal winter here in sand county also. We too have had just enough snow every other day to keep the roads slick and hazardous with seriously low temps. Forecast tonight: 18 below with Monday and Tuesday night forecast at around 20 to 25 below with wind chills to 40 to 50 below. That's just flat out f#@*ing cold!
And to think that non-hibernating animals like deer, squirrels, and birds survive those temps is utterly amazing.
I don't know how our Canadian friends do it year after year; this furless cat is far enough north. All I know is that lots of layers and a few boilermakers help make the hard parts of winter warmer :)
*For those few San Fran folks crazy enough to come to Green Bay this weekend, Sunday will hit a high of three below....bundle up!
I predicted that this winter would be a bad one and that has so far come to pass, with a vengeance. In the Dakotas an early blizzard in October killed 75,000 head of cattle.
Here in NE winter was slow coming on but 2 days after I got the snow tires on (12/4) the snow started and has come down in typical deep winter fashion, at least a dusting each night and we live in a river valley, not on a mountain ridge.
Right now we're in the midst of the worst storm of the season, WS Hercules, which will bring blizzard-like conditions to Boston and the Cape later this evening depositing a uniform 8-12 inches by tomorrow.
There would appear to be a pattern of arctic air breakouts that will continue throughout the winter. Many attribute this new winter weather pattern to global warming -- the total of which I count myself them amongst.
If winter gives you cold & snow, dress warm and do winter sports.
Unfortunately a poor man froze to death in a winter encampment 25 miles to the South. I pray it doesn't happen anywhere else.
Sunny, some clouds, a little breezy in Boca Raton, FL. Awesome!!! I just moved down here from New York.
Even though it's still going to be a sunny day the high is predicted to be only 69 degrees here in Clearwater, Florida. I guess that's why they call us the sunshine state.
It's "Groundhog Day" practically everyday in Los Osos, CA: Sunny, high in the 60's, lows in the 40's.
Like San Francisco ( 240 miles to the north), we can get fogged in for weeks in the summer - it's our natural air conditioning.
Definitely a climate that suits my clothes!
