It's cool in my area [despite it being December, I reside in a warm climate] and breezy, with huge bars of white and sooty-gray clouds pushing through. Gorgeous. :) Hope we get some rain.

You?

I'm a weather watcher, would like to know about your weather.

It's probably about 30 F. It's not actually snowing right now, but we've probably got about three inches on the ground and more to come.

Hi, Buttercup,

Weather here is overcast skies, high humidity, cool and SE breeze about 10mph (16kph). It was real foggy last night and this morning.

Basically our weather depends on which way the wind is blowing.

Argos
2008-Dec-18, 08:11 PM
Yep, way cooler than expected for this time of year. Right now [6 pm local time] it is 22C (~70F). Weve had lows of 15C this week. Nice.

This week has been a lot better than the last two weeks, the snow has finally gone, it is icy in parts and this evening it started to rain, the wind has got up and the weather reports severe gale warnings, my car nearly got blown off the road this afternoon due to the strong wind.
The temp outside at the moment is : L3 H8, cold all the same. :(

About an inch of snow on the ground, the weatherman (who has been wrong before) is calling for freezing rain. On weather.com, we show as just above the band of pink freezing rain down in southern Illinois; we're keeping our fingers crossed that it stays in Carbondale :p , and that the bigger pink blob currently over Iowa stays on their side of the Mississippi.

Still, I went out and bought a gallon of milk this morning, and checked the freezer--if we have a full-tilt-boogie ice storm and the power goes out, stuff stays frozen longer if it's full.

Yup. It's full.

Two years ago, during the Great Ice Storm of '06, our power was out for 10 days. I still have a tote full of candles down in the basement.

Bring it on.

I left Coastal California to beat one storm and got caught in another. Since I am traveling I will just say...well, I'll try not to hijack this thread so I'll start one with the story elsewhere. How the weather relates though, is this:

I beat the storm that came in off the coast and snowed the Sierras in. I got across the pass just as it started raining.

I got to central Nevada just as...we'll say this: By the time I got to Laramie, WY about 1,000 miles (1600 km) later, 400 miles were spent in driving snow, another 400 in high wind gusts (60mph/100km), and enough ice to make big bad truck drivers admit to peeing their pants. And then my heater went out...(I'm now in Michigan)

This is the same storm that snowed in Seattle and Vegas and set record lows in several places.

Ara Pacis

In the teens F and starting to snow. We're expected to get a foot or more. Luckily, most of the sleet and freezing rain is staying south of us. May be bad for Jigsaw.

I like miles just fine because they start at zero like any sensible unit. The process of subtracting 32 from the temperature to get the actual temperature, however, is beyond all rationality. :razz:

In this curious country of the UK, petrol is sold in litres, but roads are measured in miles. Ideally fuel consumption should be published in miles per litre, but it always given as either mile per (uk) gallon or litres per 100km. The facts of the measuring devices availablt to me mean that I find it hard to take much in knowing how many litres of petrol (well diesel really) my car needs to go 62.15 miles, nor how many miles I can go on 4.5 litres.

Whilst we do seem to be stuck with miles in this country, I do wish we'd go the whole way given that everything else (apart from glasses of beer aside) is in metres, kg and litres.

The US's stickiness for measuring temps in Frankenstein and selling hog bellies in bushels and the like is remarkably short-sighted. The rest of the world is watching, and laughing, so do us the favour of providing a translation. After all, you need to understand the international method whenever you go abroad, or send space ships to Mars, so you ought to be good at the translation. And even when you do do metric, you often do it in cgs which is not SI (systeme internationale) and that gives you obscure units like dynes and ergs. 1 unit (kWh) of electricity, which costs about GBP0.10, is 360000000000000 ergs, isn't that convenient.

Meanwhile, we have a nice sunny day in London. It's 7C, which is much more like normal for December than the cold weather we had the last two or three weeks when it has barely crept above 4C. Tomorrow the forecast is for 13C and sunny intervals. I might have to abandon this Icelandic jumper I've been wearing the last three weeks. That's unusual, because more normally when the temp is in the mid-teens in midwinter in London, it's because we have weather system coming in from the SW off the Atlantic and it's wet and windy. In fact whenever we have such a weather system coming in from the SW, the temp is usually in the mid-teens summer or winter.

Well then, if you want the actual temperature, you'd better add 273.15 to the one you're apparently using! Unless it's really, really cold there.

Seriously, I'm all for the USA converting to metric but I don't expect to see it in my lifetime. (I'm 60.) I do tend to prefer Fahrenheit temperatures for everyday ambient use, however, because the range of 0-100 so nicely approximates the typical range of ambients in the temperate portions of the globe. Degrees C somehow seem a little coarse.

This, from the land of Pounds Sterling, pence, quid, bob, farthings, and stones. :D

Seriously, I really do wish we'd go metric. I've always thought the system is simpler, more logical, and practical. I had no problems living in metric while stationed in Germany. But until we do convert, I'll continue to operate in Fahrenheit degrees, inches, feet, miles, and gallons for day-to-day usage. Far better for the occasional person like you to do a little math, than for me to constantly explain to everyone else I deal with what I really mean with those numbers.

I do have some concerns about coverting though. For instance, when I go to the home improvement center, will I still be able to call it a 2x4 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimensional_lumber#Dimensional_lumber)? "Thirty-eight-by-eighty-nine" just doesn't roll of the tongue as nicely. ;)

I don't see why you wouldn't just keep calling it a 2x4. As your metric units and link show, it's not 2 inches by 4 inches anyhow. Not going to change soon anyway.

Yeah, it's up to -28 now. It's also supposed to cool off a bit over the weekend. . .

Yep, they're still called 2x4 here, though our building code refers to 38mm x 89mm. Wall studs are placed at 16" centres, though the code refers to 400 mm. And so on.

The woodlands side of our lumber operations operate strictly metric, but once the logs are in the mill, everything changes to feet and inches. And thus we calculate our lumber recovery factor as fbm/m3.

It's supposed to be that way tomorrow too..until a strong cold front comes through Dallas between 3 and 6 pm...then we'll get subfreezing temps...only 29 F (-2) for a high on Sunday. Thing is, 2 and 3 days ago, we had freezing rain for 2 days. Then Fog and mildly cool yesterday. Ohhh, this is really ping-ponging all over the place - with more to come for next week!

Ara Pacis
2008-Dec-20, 09:06 AM
Well, we were supposed to get 8-12 inches yesterday morning, but we ended up getting less than half that because sleet and freezing rain deposited half the precipitation in denser forms.

Buttercup

Thanks for all the input so far! :) Short daytime in Alaska, I "see" [have known this of course]. Not sure I could deal with that. :( Chrissy, I'm glad you're safe from those nasty winds. Tinaa, 72 is a touch *cool* to we desert dwellers. Currently we're "cold" [38 F] and overcast. Hopefully rain is in the works. We've had lots of wind lately; it and fog [extremely rare here] are two forms of weather I could do without.

We're getting about 4 inches today and maybe 4 more between tonight and tomorrow. The christmas should be dry, then we should get either snow, sleet, or freezing rain on Thursday night into Friday with a chance of flooding from heavy precipitation, melting snow/ice and from ice jams on the river.

Nah. My father lives in the Houston area and I lived there too as a child, as well as other parts of the Deep South. Y'all can keep the hot, sticky weather. Cold is simply the price we pay for our glorious summers, short as they are.

mike alexander

Likewise, Trebuchet. Right now I'm waiting for a hired plow to clear our road out here in the valley. I measured 22" on the deck this afternoon, but that was compressed a bit. Probably 25-30" in three overlapping events starting last midweek. Haven't been out since Friday. One more snow overnight, could be another half foot.

The national forecasters really should stick their heads out the window occasionally. Nat Weth Serv has been predicting sleet/rain every day since Saturday. All snow.

I hope it warms up. Our roof pitch isn't really designed for that load.

Monday: Windy. Cold. High - 8 degrees F. Wind chill varried between -8 and -15 degrees.

Tuesday: Warmer. Temps in the mid 20's. 3:30pm, heavy sleet. 0.25" ice blanketting everything. Had to skate to my car after work. Mass traffic accidents. Continued percepitation, but by 5:30 had turned to rain due to raising temperatures.

This morning: Still raining; I don't think it ever stopped. Temps much warmer; high 30's or low 40's. I believe the projected high is in the upper 40's lower 50's but I don't watch the news. Mud and standing water everywhere.

This is the only time I complain that it isn't cold enough. Today Newtonmas Eve, it is 77 degrees outside so I am blasting the a/c so we can all wear longsleeves...hey I do what I can. Happy Holidays to all, what ever you celebrate!

I also live in a warm climate (originally from cold climate), and still can't quite get used to lawn lights/decorations with no sprinkling of snow.

Currently very cool (45 F) and sunny. Wish we'd get rain at least; sunny winters are not my thing. ;)

It's slow so I'll kick this thread back up. Like much of the US, it's very cold here. Single digits, negative with wind chill (Fahrenheit of course). Only had about 2-3 inches of snow yesterday. Still 'spittin but not enough to really add to the accumulation. According to the weather report this morning, we'll get more over the weekend.

I don't know if it was the visual, or the way it was written, but it was a story that "sticks" with you.

Thanks much.

We'd actually settled in for the several weeks predictions they announced at the outset. The kids considered it living "in the old the days" or camping inside; well, me too.
Unfortunately for many they're not capable of keeping their houses warm without power, or even cooking food. Alas... a painful lesson in disaster preparedness and self reliance.

Just prior to your ice storm, we had a major snow storm pass through Sunday - Monday. Perhaps that one was mainly rain for you in WKY. The remarkable thing was for several days in advance they were predicting it and 24 hours in advance they stated it would commence around 4:00PM and end around 4:00PM the following day. They were within a half hour of being dead-on in both predictions. The science of meteorology has made amazing progress in my opinion...and yet we still take it for granted.

btw - many of our secondary streets were still a mess; snow and ice covered. Thankfully, we will break the freezing mark today.

Part of the problem is word usage.
A lot of people think "blizzard" equates to snowfall.

Officially, a blizzard can occur with no (current) snowfall. Its the cold and blowing that characterizes one.

When the kid driving gets a leadfoot on the way back. I don't say anything until he gets over 70. And then I had to repeat myself. I don't like having to repeat myself. Makes me feel like I'm being disrespected.

Then, of course, he looked me in the face and we did 85 past San Francisco Airport, where the Highway Patrol likes to troll for speeders.

So when we get to the garage, what other option did I have? (Large ashtray though, not coffee cup.)

At the office, we were without power and our trash-can is nowhere to be seen. Our theory is it was blown into the street and got hit, so the garbage men just threw it in their truck.

We experienced "Oregon Mist"

It missed Oregon and hit us!

Well this morning they were calling for flurries ending by the afternoon. Well something apparently zagged when it should have zigged, so instead of flurries, we got 5-10cm of snow, ending this afternoon (almost ended now)

Presently -18C, probably down to -24C by morning. Wind 30 km/h gusting to 50.

The wind makes it awful. I have a deadline approaching on some slow, tedious field work. There isn't much option to stay at home because of weather. It's not physically demanding, so I have to dress appropriately to stay warm. Picture the Michelin Man in a snorkel parka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anorak#Snorkel_Parka) on snowshoes.

Snowed again yesterday, just a little. We've had a really unusual number of snowfalls this year, for this area. Nothing anyone in the Midwest would even notice, of course but they were delaying schools left and right yesterday morning. It's been unusually cold as well. Bring on the rain, we're ready for it!

Temperature in the 30's (F) and snowing like crazy. As it's been, on and off, all weekend. This is not, Not, NOT, NOT normal around here!

Editing to add: I just came back from driving to a meeting in another building. It's lots worse than I thought; freeway traffic north of Seattle is going to be a nightmare. I'm glad I live close and don't have to get on it. I'm driving an '85 Honda CRX which is a very good snow car as long as it doesn't get too deep. "Too deep" being about 5-6 inches, at which point the car high centers and the front spoiler becomes a plow.

You could always move here. The rainy season lasts about 10.5 months. Half of July and most of August are usually pretty nice.

On the other hand, the way things are going it might still be snowing.

44F with an 8mph wind and more "drought" coming down.

For those that don't know people here were really hoping for drought relief money. Crystal Springs reservoir is so full that the trees lining it are inundated up to their first set of branches.

The only reservoir with any bare shoreline is in Contra Costa county, where the feds give them half their water and the feds cut their water ration 50% for enviromental reasons and they still only have about thirty feet of dirt until you get to the old fill line. None of this "half empty bath tub" nonsense.

And "worst drought on record" is positively insulting.

Hi Argos, your location puts you in the middle of Runway 32 at the Bauru Airport - I can just imagine the heat coming off the runway in the middle of summer would make it a little uncomfortable...
