It is expected to climb over 100F today. Even hotter tomorrow.

Stop making me jealous with your cool temp posts.

It's not often you see a 100 degrees difference in temps on a map.
But from +63 to -40 is on this map around 9 pm EST.

Canadians in Quebec and Ontario may think us Yanks are a bunch of whooses.
All across these 2 provinces last night, they had temps of lower than -25, down to -40
... and will again tonight.

Snow is almost done here. I just cleaned off the car. I'm all proud of myself. It would have been one inch of pretty solid ice in the morning, coating the whole car. It took a minute or two just now, and would have been a huge job in the morning. I remembered!

Somebody's being an attention whore this morning.
Actual: 6", but some places reported 9", so broadly everyone was right and wrong. As usual!

The weather on this side of the Atlantic has been nothing but high winds and torrential rain for the past couple of weeks. A mighty storm hit the UK on Monday of last week which resulted in floods and damage to overhead power lines. Thousands of homes were without electricity for several days, including Christmas Day. Another storm hit us on the Friday and inflicted more damage. Tuesday was nothing but driving rain all day and today (Fri 3rd Jan) we've had thunderstorms and hail.

As I type, yet another deep area of low pressure is out in the Atlantic and winding itself up to visit storm and tempest upon this sceptered isle.

The weather chap on the TV explained that our current problems are another manifestation of what is happening in the north east United States. Where the dense Arctic air is meeting the warm air mass from the south, it is creating an extremely strong jetstream which is heading our way and creating the mighty atmospheric turbulence we are seeing at the moment.
He showed a graphic of the two air masses and the daytime high in Quebec was -22C and in Florida +19C. Well, there was never going to be a happy ending to that, was there?

As we British would say, 'mustn't grumble'. But we do

13 here last night. That's pretty damn chilly for my neck o' the woods. Warming all the way to Tuesday or Wednesday [ETA: Moved up to Monday, now] when our hi/lo is forecast as 8/4. The previous day to those numbers will be 45.

8" Heavy, fine powder. With a nice layer of slush at the bottom so it sticks to your shovel. What fun.
