Re: Your Weather

It's been unseasonably mild here in Nova Scotia, with today likely to top 10-deg C (50-deg F). The forecast shows for temps dropping to the freezing mark by Tuesday, but no real snow to speak of. Of course we're all holding our breath, because this is how winter started last year ... then we got hammered!

Re: Your Weather

Seems to me just a few months ago we were complaining about drought..... now we're treading water!  I'm sure somebody prayed for rain and it's been raining buckets for a week or more. But there is a bright side, the freexing level has stayed fairly high, which is good for getting ahead on the snowpack we'll be needing later in the year.

In the meantime though, flooding and mudslides, local rivers and streams overflowing, debris in the bays and costal waterways raising havoc with shipping, just another Northwest Winter (like the good old pre-drought days!).

About time to revive this thread.

Last year we had our first snow right before Thanksgiving. It got cold in November and never let go until late March/early April. Same with the 13/14 winter.

It couldn't be any more different this year. We've been getting some modest cold spells but it warms right back up. Highs have been in the 50's and overnight lows in the 30's. Only going down to around 45F for the next few nights with highs in the mid 60's.

The weather gurus are saying no brutal cold or snow into Christmas. That's as far out as they're willing to guess.

Your weather sounds just like it is here in California.

Re: Your Weather

It's December in NY, and it feels a LOT like September.  Mind you, I'm not complaining that I haven't had to go out and shovel snow... it's just weird.  I can only remember one other year when we didn't have snow on Christmas, but I'm pretty sure we had SOME snow before Christmas that had melted.  We haven't had ANY yet this year.  A few flakes fell from the sky once or twice, but they melted immediately.

Just terrible here, today. Lows at 45, high at 72, sunny, winds from the south 5 to 10 mph - so I went phishing.

it's mid December in Seattle.  That means perpetual damp and dank.

It's basically this until July.

I agree, NELA. We have a few lakes around here that open for Ice Fishing on January 1st. The hope is that they won't be frozen over before then, so's I can dump the kayak in and go for it. Most of them have either / or Rainbow Trout, White Perch, or Chain Pickerel. The first two are delicious, but chain-sides (like a small pike) are disgustingly boney, and not worth the trouble. I love White Perch:

Re: Your Weather

Low 50's and rain here.

Tomorrow starts our next bout of 2 day at a time winter. Low 40's for Friday and mid 30's Saturday. Then it's back to 50 for Monday.

I could get used to winters like this. smile

Re: Your Weather

It's finally happened, we've got a snowstorm in the forecast. Between Sunday night and Tuesday morning, they're predicting 25 cms (about 1 foot). It's been very mild throughout December (+12 C today, or +54 F) so that we've gotten spoiled.

We had a thunderstorm on Chrismas eve and it's been rather warm for this time of year. It could be said that we're having a nice summer this winter!

Re: Your Weather

Record warmth for us again today; close to 70F. If the sun would break through we would be well into the 70's.

I kinda feel bad for enjoying this so much when I see the local ski resort trying to make snow. They turn on the machines when we get our brief cold spells and it melts off a couple days later.

1.   Hot and wet
2.   Cold and wet
3.   Road Construction
