    today was 21 so that was a treat but it still felt cold. I see we will dip again, by friday and a nice batch of snow is also coming. it should miss me according to the forecast, but looks like julie in nova scotia will be in the center, so hopefully it will be kind to her and maybe even get out of the way of NS. I see that sunday and monday look interesting, 30's ......could that possibly be correct or did I dream that one.

    Yes Woodie, you are reading those temps correctly.... cross your fingers just in case!......but it is what comes after that worries me!.....we could use a good ole January thaw though... before we get hit again with another polar vortex!

    6 this morning but going up to 25..... if it makes it, wonderful! tomorrow a snow storm coming up, its coastal so you are in the clear Ron, hopefully the jet stream will push it far enough out to see not to make a big difference here but they are saying 1 to 3 inches. we sure could use a warm up, maybe two if we are lucky enough, dream on. keep warm everyone!

    -2 this evening...windchill -18..
    -4 overnight...windchill -22....
    Then it starts to warm up:
    23 tomorrow, Mon 34, Tuesday 30, Weds 37 and 43 for Thursday!
    And it will be heading your way Woodie!
    Hold your breath for next weekend.....the deep freeze returns!

    27 overnight....light blowing snow developing....

    woke up to 16 this morning. thats the highest its been in a morning since xmas. but we are also expecting snow late morning. they say it wont be much. 1 or 2 inches. supposed to get to 30 today but we will see if that happens. tomorrow starts a warm up but it will just last the week it looks like. will be an interesting week Ron. 40's by thurs.

    30 with heavy snow falling! 40-50 mph winds out of the SW...They are really howling!!
    Got around 3 inches so far and might get another 2 or so by the time the system moves out later on this morning...
    Could get another inch this afternoon, but it will probably change over to rain.
    Might get up to 36!
    34 for this evening.
    27 overnight...with winds shifting out of the west....

    Looks like a major winter storm by Friday night/Saturday!

    The snow sputtered out by late morning....then it drizzled as the temp went above freezing....fair amount of melting happened in the afternoon....as the winds died down..,,,total snowfall was around 4 inches....

    I was right! Today was a good pick for a road trip! Roads should be clear and dry....with no blowing snow!

    It's sunny and 25 right now....very light wind out of the west...
    Going up to around 30 this afternoon with mostly sunny skies!
    Dropping to 19 tonight then up to 39 tomorrow with showers!

    glad you can make your escape Ron. yesterday we had sunshine but by noon it was grey again, still be did hit 34. this morning is 15 and sunny, so if that sunshine stays it will make it up to 40 for today. that would be good for melting. the parking lot needs a little more melting to be clean. of course they are talking snow on sat, ugh but thats a ways off yet.
