In the 60's today, had a great ride on the motorcycle. It is truly lovely in the South, no reason to ever live where it snows.

Clear and cool here in the Ozarks (38°).

-MMM-

Gorgeous weekend here, 4 inches of snow cover and bright blue skies.

Alaska storm brings ‘epic’ flooding, snowy weather and strong winds
Quote:

A storm of hurricane-like size with unusual intensity
has begun pounding the western coast of Alaska, bringing huge waves,
high winds, flooding and blinding snow.

A storm of historic intensity continues to pound the west coast of Alaska today.
Twice the size of Texas, the storm is as deep as a category 3 hurricane.
The National Weather Service is calling it a “life-threatening epic storm”
due to its dangerous combination of towering waves (observed at 40 feet in the Bering Sea),
winds over 100 mph, storm surge flooding, and blinding snow.

“People out there are used to extreme weather,
but this is not a normal storm,” said Jeremy Zidek,
a spokesman for the state’s emergency management agency.
“This is of a magnitude that can be a storm of record,
extremely dangerous, and the state is treating it as such.”

Our PDX news media are predicting this storm will reach the Pacific Northwest on Saturday,
and will bring heavy rains to the valleys and snow to the mountains
on thru the middle of the next week

Guess what the East Coast will get for Thanksgiving.

This storm went thru PDX last night. It's scary when the trees are being blown about.
Fortunately, this Doug Fir limb missed the two cars parked here.
(The van was already damaged, so no harm done there)

37 degrees centigrade here today, with increasing humidity and probably showers with a chance of thunder in the afternoon.

Mid 20s for the following five days, though. :)

You lot have weird fluctuations down there don't you? Up here we just get hot and steamy. Once it starts, it doesn't really stop till next autumn.

ZenGum 11-17-2011 05:41 PM

We either get the hot dry northerlies blasting off the central desert, tropical moisture feeding down through a trough, or a lovely cool change off the southern ocean.

The cool changes are wonderful. When it drops from 40 degrees to 25 in the space of an hour or so, it is damn near orgasmic.

Aliantha 11-17-2011 05:46 PM

Yeah, it's always nice to get a respite from the heat. The best places we have to go are the mountain creeks. They're always cold, and usually the temp is a bit cooler too. Otherwise, even when we get a storm it doesn't cool down that much except sometimes if it's preceeded by a big blow for 10 mins. That breeze can be cool at times.

TheMercenary 11-21-2011 02:57 PM

Current weather in Savannah, 76 degrees.

Lamplighter 11-22-2011 09:48 AM

Overnight 40-50 mph sustained winds with gusts to 80 on the Oregon coast.
Streams are going to flood stage due to warm rains melting last week's snow fall.
In PDX, a few trees have come down, but the biggest problem
is flooded intersections where leaves are clogging drains.
A few drivers are going too fast and get into hydroplaning.

Sundae 11-22-2011 10:54 AM

We're currently basking in unseasonal temperatures - 12 degrees today (37). Warm enough for me to walk to school in short sleeved tops at least.

Something to do with Gulf Stream air being trapped between two fronts. Or something something.

I don't like it.
We're even missing out on the fog which the rest of the South East is getting.
I like fog, I call it frog to myself and that pleases my simple mind. I correct the weather reporters when they say, "Delays at Heathrow due to the fog" (frog).

But I have a confirmed playdate with Tiger and his sister if we have a snow day.
Yay!
All the more reason it won't happen.
Why?
Sod's Law.
