Weather in your area 2021

Post by Turbofan » Mon Feb 08, 2021 5:10 pm

Starting late, again lol.

January was fairly seasonal to mild for the most part, just a few days below average. Also had more than averge precipitation.

Last week we had highs in the 60s and 70s, but winter is back in full force. Starting a downhill trend today, going from highs in the 30s to highs in the teens by end of the week. Very cold for this region of the world. Lows on Saturday morning will be in the single digits.

Not expecting a whole lot of winter precip here at the moment, not complaining. Hopefully that part of the forecast stays the same.

Continued cold into next week, this arctic airmass isn't going anyplace anytime soon. It could always be worse, up north windchills are expected to be in the -40s and -50s.

Well, quite the opposite here in Utah...

January was really dry, we need way more precipitation than we have gotten. Highs in the 50s.

So far we have gotten only 30-40 inches of snowpack in our mountains, for reference we are usually up in the 70-80 inch range.

We NEED more snow, we do have the greatest snow on earth right? We have had horrible winds over the last few days, getting 20-30 degree Windchill..

We haven't been above freezing for a few weeks, until today, we hit 45.

I personally enjoy the snow, since we bought a boat, so I can tolerate it lol.
Oh, its just Gordo...

It's our turn to be below freezing for the next 7-8 days, very rare here.

Today's high was 22F, tomorow will be the hottest day of this week at 26F, before things take a nosedive.

SNOW DAY 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This winter has been a repeated pattern where it would get below freezing for a few days, then warm up to the 50-60°F range and rain, dry out, and repeat.

Finally, the rain and cold came together Tuesday night to leave a thin layer of ice on everything, which promptly melted before dawn. Wednesday night, however, was different. The temperatures have stayed below freezing for over 12 hours, and trees, cars, the ground, and roads are all covered with ice. There is still some frozen stuff coming down.

The forecast currently predicts more snow and ice on Monday and highs below freezing from Saturday through at least Tuesday.

For those from areas that get a lot of snow and wonder why a little dusting has closed southern schools:
We don't get a lot of snow. What we have is ice. You can drive pretty easily on a few inches of snow, but it only takes about 5 mm of ice to make a bad day. Trees collapse on houses and power lines, cars slide off of roads at slow speeds. An ice storm in 2009 shut down western Kentucky for weeks due to broken trees, power outages, and blocked roads.

Another day, another snow... greetings from Sasketcha - er the Southern Plains! I guess these screens captures from my WS 4000 Emulator say it all.

Some additional fun facts: The low in Houston on Tuesday is expected to be around 12F, Corpus Christi has a Winter Storm Warning.

We're pretty much iced in already here in northwest Tennessee. We had light snow dusting all day, but it's supposed to be several inches over the next 24 hours. Several nights have lows below 10°F. The highest high looks like 29° on Wednesday, followed by several more inches of snow. The long range forecast shows highs above freezing again starting on Saturday and lows above freezing later next week, but who knows that far out?

We've been lucky here. There hasn't been much ice on the trees and power lines.

On our way out of school on Wednesday, I made the joke that I would see my colleagues on Thursday. They asked why I wasn't hoping for a snow day. (Yes, boys and girls. Teachers love snow days as much as you!) I said, "I mean the 25th." It was just a joke, but at this rate, we're going to burn through our five snow days by Thursday and lose one day from Spring Break on Friday. And that is if we are able to go back to school the next Monday, which we might not if the ice doesn't melt off the county roads.

Nutty weather pretty much all over the central and southern U.S. It's interesting for sure when you're looking forward to the high temp getting back above 20F. Which, if things go as forecasted, will be Thursday.

We had a whole day of sun yesterday but the high crept up to 16F.

Here's a picture out my back door. You might recognize that as the little shed ground object. haha We've had several inches of snow already, and it isn't over yet. At some point I'm going to have to grab a bowl and dip some snow up for snow cream.
