    It's "warmed up" to 32F, with a flurry of snow right now. Wind almost calm.

    Temperature dropping to -28 C tonight with a windchill of up to -46 C depending on how strong the wind is. There's a big Arctic front moving in, I'm not sure how far south this one is heading but be prepared for more winter.

    We take the cold fronts as long as we can and then all the bitter complaining drives them south, sorry.

    We've been getting some pretty horrendous wind chill factors here, -60 C in southern Saskatchewan yesterday and many cities and towns in Alberta woke to wind chill in the mid to high -40 C this morning. This kind of blows up the idea that climate change is a nice smooth process to a warmer world, I'm a little afraid of what the future without a stable polar vortex holds for us.

    Sounds nice, here on Hoth we're having a tough time keeping our Tauntauns from keeling over.

    Ship them here to Coruscant; there's a huge petting zoo near to where I live. I'll handle the details on this end.

    That could be a problem, it's never wise to allow a tauntaun to thaw(the smell issue) so they're usually only found on the colder planets. You'll need a very dependable refrigeration unit.

    On this second day of spring as we count it, it's still foggy and the day temperature is still fluctuating around 5C as it's been doing for two months now.

    Still below zero here. We are officially at the second snowiest winter on record with a long way to go to eclipse the snowiest. Great Lakes show over 90% ice cover. Only 5% to go! Frozen over lakes typically shuts off the lake effect so i don't think we'll hit that snow record. Ice cover seems reachable based on the ten day forecast.

    I wonder if this is how ice ages start? A permanent shift in the jet stream and my house will be under a glacier in a few years.

    We are having another wild swing in the weather here. Yesterday the high was 55 around noon, and still over 40 and raining at midnight. About 3 AM the rain changed to sleet, with a change to snow between 5 and 6. As of 10 AM the temperature is down to 19, with about 3.5 inches of powdery snow over freezing slush. Snow could reach as much as 8 inches in some places, and overnight low is expected to reach single digits.

    Wild 24 hour swing here in central Virginia too. Yesterday I was in shorts doing yard work at 77F, woke up to 32F this morning with sleet. Almost noon here now and getting hammered with snow, temp to drop to mid teens by sundown and 9F by morning. Still, it's a heatwave some some of your standards.

    77F to a hard freeze with snow and ice in 24 hours! I had no idea it was that warm so close to here. That may explain why the News 4 team was finding only wet roads in Stafford County going south toward Fredericksburg while everything was icy farther north despite salting and plowing.

    We ended up with 5 or 6 inches of snow, and the temperature is about 18 and dropping fast. The plows took a swipe at my street but left a lot of slush, and now it is glare ice on a steep hill. If they don't get some sand on it overnight, it will be really nasty tomorrow morning.

    Heavy rain, mid 50's F in the lowlands around Puget Sound. Even heavier rain up in the mountains. The higher temps and resulting snowmelt, combined with the heavy rain, means local flooding and landslides are starting to occur.

    Oh my yes. I just got soaked running into the take-out pizza place. Expect to see salmon swimming across the highway near Shelton very soon.

    It feels strange walking outside without gloves, toque, long johns etc...I was beginning to think this winter would never end. +10 C today, the snow is going to disappear fast here.

    Spring is late here in central Virginia, very late. Tough it is nice here today at 60F none of my fruit trees have bloomed yet. Usually most (cherry, pears, plums, peaches) are at peak bloom right now but only 2 plums show any sign of bud swell. Not even the daffodils are blooming, that's late for us. Long range forecast hints at a chilly Mar/Apr here.

    Absolutely beautiful here! Sunny and low 50's F. Supposed to be in the low 60's tomorrow, a nice preview of spring. Time to get caught up on yardwork...

    Obviously, the weather here must be bad.
    I went to one of our local news web sites, and out of 27 stories, 25 are weather related.

    Reporters must be lemmings. They all follow each other to the same basic story.

    One story even was a reporter walking to work 3 whole blocks and showing the start of the snow. Really?

    Chilly (well, by SA standards), and very breezy.
