High of 37f today and expecting even a bit warmer on Saturday with colder weather returning later next week.

Photos:

We had a strange weather phenomenon around the area last Sunday night. The perfect combination of rising and falling temps, snowfall and wind speed conspired to fill yards and fields with thousands of "snow rollers."

On Tuesday morning it was a frosty -16 f when I hiked the Ernst Trail to a spot along French Creek, hoping to photograph a misty sunrise. A bit disappointing because the creek was too frozen to produce much mist but I still managed to get some decent photos.

Spring is one month closer!

Could use six more weeks of CA 'winter' since we've gotten almost none so far.

They're calling for a high of 64F today. Might go into the 30s overnight.

Good thing is we have traction on ice because it came down in pellets so no problems driving on it if you are smart.

Got down to 38F last night. The forecast was correct. They are calling for a high of 60F today and partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers tonight. It doesn't rain in the daytime, I swear. It takes a big storm to rain in the daytime. I look forward to a rainy day but haven't had one in a couple years. (This isn't the first year of the drought, just the worst so far.)

It got down to 36F last night. There was frost on the grass. We get frost from time to time but it isn't a killing frost. We've had less frost this year since it's been a warmer winter.

They are calling for a high of 61F and it should make it since the sun is out. I think yesterday got up to about 63F, which seemed chilly in the shade (you may laugh) but it is seasonal. We got 0.05 inch of rain on Sunday night.

It's been a while since we've had a rain storm of even an inch. This is the second drought period I've experienced in CA. The other was when I first moved out here in 1987. It lasted for several years but no one year was as dry as this current one. We've also had a handful of wet years. Those are usually El Nino years. One time we got 7 inches of rain in one day.

Saw Kelli's comment about wanting something colorful so rushed outside to take pics. Hope these will bring some sunshine into snowy or dry lives.
First one is a orchid, flower stem is about 7 ft long and these cluster are spaced about every 10 inches
Second is double spider web on our front deck about two days ago
Third hanging heliconia with orchids in the background.

What a change from yesterday. Today is totally grey sky, a little drizzle, calm and about 74f. Good gardening weather. Weather forecasters word for the coming few days is "benign" weather, which I guess means more gardening weather. That indoor painting will have to wait.

I feel like I am being cheated out of a wildflower year. For me, it's like not having Christmas. We could still have wildflowers IF it would rain some more. It is early in the season, but they need to get water now so they can start growing.

This is ceanothus from this date last year. Last year was a drier than average year but not nearly as bad as this year. The ceanothus are not blooming this year. They are shedding leaves in order to stay alive. They look pretty bad.

54 and steady rain, high of 64 and rain all day long. Yesterday rained all day, all night and never hit 60, they predicted 70. But tomorrow they say we'll see the sun again...fingers crossed.

My tomato and pepper plants are under a canopy so they don't get drenched. It has rained most the two weeks since I planted them...at least they are in containers so I can move them.

Kelli glad you got some rain, wish I could send you some of mine ☺

Tennessee, western area right at the Tennessee River-tiny snowflzkes silting down, hardly enough to worry with so far, but a prediction of at least 5 more days of this. The temps warmed up from yesterday- 20*, it is now 29* outside. Started the vehicle to keep it from freezing up while it is parked, and back indoors to sit back and watch the news...weekend.

Who cares, it's one day closer to spring.

How come California was whining about drought, & now whining because it's raining.
We've had 6" of rain in 24 hours at times & we don't whine. We actually cheer because
any rain is welcome in the corn belt.

Forecast after Wed. is for more normal weather. 20's & 30's.

It's one week past Groundhog Day, so 5 more weeks of winter. Hang in there. You can do it. I remember my PA days and the weather in February was so monotonous that it felt like February was the longest month.

Groundhog Day is half way between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox, so technically, it is 6 1/2 weeks before spring. Groundhog Day is called a cross quarter day. http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2927/

Winter. It knows us better than we know ourselves.
It shapes and forges us into who we are and who we know we can become
Winter gives us everything. It expects us to give it all back. We are Canada. We are winter.
- excerpts from We Are Winter video by the Canadian Olympic Committee

On Monday morning, freezing rain will move through the region.
Temperatures will fall sharply in the afternoon, leading to the risk of a flash freeze,
followed by snow, followed by sleet, followed by more snow,
followed by hordes of Yeti coming down from the hills to feast on the weakest among us.
- Scott Feschuk, Macleans Magazine

Blizzarding here...son left this morning, drove through it, and is now lost in Edmonton. Husband headed towards Swift Current but the blizzard caught up to him. He turned around when he saw a man that had hit the ditch and was still clutching his steering wheel and just staring out to nowhere.

I see the Old Man really wanted to show off his strength this year...Georgia getting a snow storm just like us! Pic shows the eternal optimist on our block (after all these years he has yet to figure out whatever he removes blows back in X2)

They are calling for a high of 88F. No records were broken right around here with yesterday's temperature circa 86F, so that must not be unprecedented. Weeks and weeks of this nonsense is contributing to the worst drought in modern history, though. I feel cheated out of a nice southern CA winter, though. I can't tell you the last time it rained all day. It literally has been years.

They are calling for a high of 79F. According to the newspaper we'd need 36 inches of rain this month to end the drought. I could be on that not going to happen.

No wind, no rain (yet), lots of layered grey cloud 74f. A few showers last night, ground is wet and possibility of more rain tomorrow and showers through the week. Kauai has flash flood watch and some road closed this morning so rough weather is about 300 miles away at the other end of the island chain.
My orchid cactus have buds already. Usually wait until April.

Today...Snow...Possibly mixed with sleet in the morning...Then snow likely in the afternoon. Snow and sleet accumulation of 4 to 5 inches. Southeast wind 10 to 15 mph shifting to the west in the afternoon. Gusts up to 25 mph. Chance of precipitation near 100 percent.
Tonight...Mostly clear. West wind 10 to 15 mph. Gusts up to 25 mph in the evening.

We had a pretty nice day yesterday and went to the car wash after breakfast to wash the salt off the truck. Then after dinner we moved wheelbarrows of snow from around the house and dumped them in the ditch. We are really going to have some snow melt later this week before we go back to being cold.

Today it's already spitting sleet and is windy. Now I see snow with sleet. A very good day to stay in!

Have a safe day all!

Curious how high the Mississippi River will rise here in the St. Louis area when all that snow up north melts. At least, the river is pretty low right now.

Grey skies continued today. Some light showers overnight and then at about 8am the rain started and it has rained moderately heavy all day with temp about 70f. Whole state is covered by a sheet of grey cloud moving up from the topics. All created by a low pressure system rotating west of Kauai. They say it should start clearing a bit tomorrow but they are not sure. Winter weather advisory for telescopes on top of Mauna kea. Aviation advisories include icing between 13000 and 20,000 ft with moderate turbulence.
Feel sorry for tourists although those from the East Coast are probably running around in the rain in swim gear.

Fairly windy today. It was windy last night and blew over some of my potted plants. We cleaned up the carnage. When stuff falls over in the wind I often leave it fallen over until the wind event is over, but DH wanted to clean up this mess so I let him. (Lots of potting soil all over the place.)

Because the wind is from the northeast, it will be low humidity today but there are no fire warnings out yet.

They are calling for a high of 82F today.

Perfect Hawaiian morning, clear skies with a hint of cloud on the horizon. Little or no winds. 70f and will climb to 80f. May have some showers this afternoon to cool things off. Should be the same tomorrow with tradewinds returning next week with a few morning and night time showers. Nearest good beach (black sand) is about 30 miles away. One day, when there are no household chores we might get there.

No nightcrawlers here, maybe that is why we so rarely see robins. We'll see like one in five years. Supposedly they'd like our toyon berries, but they don't. Toyon is supposed to attract birds but ours doesn't. Too many other goodies in suburbia, I guess. It is fun to see a parrot or parakeet but I hope they find their way back to their owners. One year we even had a zebra finch hanging around.

It's been three weeks since Groundhog Day, so three more weeks of winter. You've made it half way through. You can do it.

Another gorgeous Hawaiian morning, clear blue sky, no wind, no clouds, about 66f, some birds singing in the forest and just a hint of mist to make sunbeams through the trees.
Yesterday started the same but clouded up in the afternoon with some showers. Had some rain overnight. Probably will do the same today.

Kelli, you're probably right about the robins. They stay away while the ground is frozen because they feed on the worms. I do love having them around in the garden. They come right up to me as I toss a worm or 2 their way. At least, we have our beloved cardinals year round. They are so beautiful.

And Kelli, I know how frustrating a drought is because we've had some severe ones the past few summers. I hope that you get some substantial rainfall soon. I enjoy all the wonderful produce that's shipped here from CA in the wintertime. It makes winters here a bit more bearable.

The California drought is very serious and a threat to food supply.

43 today, 26 tonight and a few flurries possible in the early morning tomorrow.

Kelli, I don't remember any robins in CA either, but I didn't see nearly as many birds as I do here ... except for shore birds. Luv those. :)

Hey! Rain for California!!!

Another cold spell moving in here for the next few days. I'm hoping it will be the last of the -0f temps for this winter and spring will slowly take over.

I had Achilles tendon surgery last week and will be out of action for a few months. It's going to put a big dent in my photography for a while. I just want to be ready for spring gardening!

Kelli so great to hear you are expecting rain...should we all start doing a rain dance for you? ☺

Beautiful photo EB of the sunrise...hope you heal up quickly.

An epidendrum orchid blooming in my garden, and my lipstick plant is blooming. Also saw two hummingbirds this past week and one butterfly. Spring is on the way.

Beautiful photos, E_B

Nice orchids. I've tried growing them here but had no luck . I would have to slave over them to keep them humid enough and I won't slave over my plants.

They are calling for a high of 67F. There was a little bit of mist falling when I went out to feed the fish this morning. The newspaper is calling for a downpour of Friday and WU is calling for showers. We sure could use that downpour. Sure it will mess with traffic, which is the ultimate southern CA sin, but we need the rain so badly.

We got 0.2 inch of rain last night and it is supposed to rain tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday. (Probably off an on, not continuous.) If it pans out, that will be the most rain we've had in a year.

They are calling for a high of 67F today, chance of rain 70%. Personally, I don't think it will rain anymore until after dark. It takes a whopper of a storm for it to rain during the day.

Remember that wind chill does not affect your body the same as absolute temperature does. It only feels that cold, it is not that cold. If the temperature is 40F and the wind chill is 32F, water will not freeze. (According to what I read, that would violate a law of thermodynamics.) The water will just do what it does at 40F, and the same with your skin.

Not true , Kelli , I argue ,, Wind Burns and dries the exposed Skin at Chill Temperature ,,
I'm experienced as to the matter ,,

40 degrees won't burn your skin on it's own . Put a good storm wind with that and it will

Lot less wind than that will at the temperatures we are talking here ,
At below 10 degrees it does not take much wind to burn the skin
Lower where we are talking ,, poof ... your skin is burnt dry ..30 below will break some of your hair , Put a wind with that and it will break off a bunch of hair , freeze dried !

The actual temp will be -40C

The windchill of -52 (C) or -61.6 (F) will rob us of any body heat in exposed areas faster than we would normally lose it at -40C without wind. At that windchill our exposed skin will start to freeze in two minutes. -40C without wind means we would probably have 10 or 15 window before our skin froze.

Juhur, no hard feelings or whatever. It was what I read on a weather web site, but all I can say is I remember waiting for the school bus with wind chills around -50F and no one got frostbite. That was in the days before they closed school based solely on cold and not quantity of snow.

Anyway, back to the important stuff. We got 1.6 inches of rain last night and it is still raining.

They are calling for a high of 60F.
