CT was hit pretty hard by the storm; it took a more Westerly track. I'd say we had about a foot of snow. Now the temps have dropped and the winds are kicking up. The area we ski at in Vermont has an air temp of -5F and a wind chill of -32F  Yikes.

My snow blower has been busy... did my own driveway 4 times in 36 hours, and did 5 neighbour driveways to help them out.

Not enjoying, but not complaining either as it looks very pretty especially as the sun peeks through the low snow squalls http://www.komokaweather.com/weather/wu/image_wu.jpg

Yes Celsius used here.


Like often happens, a January thaw will likely come shortly before the real cold temperatures arrive in February.

Been very cold here too in western Maine. Our lowest temp over the past 2 weeks was -23F, and we've consistently been -10F to -20F every single night. It would be even colder if the winds would relax, but it has been so windy throughout this entire time! Our lowest wind chill over this time period has been -42F!

The other morning it was -8F and we had a wind gust of 49MPH! Calculated wind chill then was that -42F.

Finally getting a storm breaking through the stationary high that keeps plaguing and blocking the SW.  Flagstaff is finally getting few inches snow. Snowpack is non existent.

Even still, this is not particularly cold storm, snow level here will only get to about 6k. The really cold ones will hit the valley floor ~2.5k. The ridge is suppose to build back so it won't be long lived.

Unfortunately, it's going to warm up in New England later this week. I long for a winter where it stays snowy and cold from December through March. Maybe I'm asking too much.  :grin:

Our low -26.0C at 11:57 pm last night is 8th in my Top10 http://www.komokaweather.com/mysql/top10.php but temperature dropped to -28.7C at 3:24 am so will be 3rd in my Top10 when it updates after midnight.

It felt really cold when we were returning home last night after the hockey game.  But that was better than the cold and ongoing Lake Huron snow squalls we have been getting.

Enjoy,
Paul

For the last week I have been watching the temps up & down the east coast as I have family scattered most of the way down (I am in Northern VT).

Still snow on the ground in SC after several days & a generous helping of single-digits below the Mason-Dixon line.

Has anyone else noticed the pocket of cold along the I-95 corridor at the VA-NC border?  They were well below zero yesterday & still single digits this AM.

We are even above zero today at +12.

We also had +12.  It's just wrong when +12 feels balmy.

This low off the Socal coast looks to be nicely getting it's act together, and maybe getting a negative tilt too. Should be an interesting day/night Tue. in the SW. Wouldn't mind a Tstorm or two..

And as usual, after Cali. burns, now they have to deal with the mudslides. I see where 5 are already dead.

Lots of below 0 (-18C) expected tonight. Even Arkansas, Oklahoma join in on the fun.  Houston Texas where most of my family lives will experience a freeze (30) also its rather rare for south Texas on the Gulf of mexico.

Yep, we have a big chance of frozen precipitation and might even get snow (second time this winter). Global cooling?   :shock:

I have a grandson from Houston at boot camp in Missouri who had never experienced cold. His mom is so worried about him it's almost funny. I've tried to assure her he's a big boy now and not to worry.  :-)
