Geese.  Lots of 'em  Thought I heard a flock the other day, but these were very clear skimming below the clouds  Not close enough to see if they had their bikinis or not though.

Oklahoma City reached 82 degrees on Friday destroying a 121 year old daily record high!  Saturday will be much cooler with no rain expected.

Some of the local lakes and ponds are finally starting to freeze over here in Leeds, Maine. I say finally, but in reality they typically start to freeze over during the first two weeks of November. We had a very warm October, but once we turned the corner into November, it cooled off significantly.

I took the chance today to take my Davis VP2 apart completely and gave it a good deep clean before winter really sets in. Lets just say I found plenty of spiders/webs and dirt build up, especially inside the radiation shield plates. I imagine having it clean as new now will make it at least a bit more accurate.

Setting up the ice skate rink today in Stillwater to attract shoppers downtown until New Year's had to be postponed to Dec. 1, due to warm weather.  The high here got to 82 today.

Looks like tomorrow we will break the oldest standing high temp record in Tucson at 122 years, 86F, progged for 88F. Then Sun., possibly 90F, if so, the latest date ever for a 90 degree day here.

Wishful thinking on their part.
Average low temperature for date is 33.

Not official yet, but will be as the latest 90F on record. I believe this will also go down as the hottest year on record.... again. Becoming the norm.

Toasty here tomorrow also. Winter is returning first week of December however.

Forecast discussion:  Mid to upper 70s will be seen across the entire forecast
area, with North Platte and Valentine currently forecasted for 77
and 79 degrees respectively
. Would not be surprised if portions of
the Sandhills rise up into the 80s as 850 mb temperatures rise to
near 20 degrees C by Monday afternoon. Will continue to monitor the
latest guidance through the next forecast cycle.

66 as of the moment.  At least no threat of severe weather as often accompanies these temps this time of year.

Well, November is in the books and it was the warmest I have had since I got a weather station in 1994.  My average mean temperature for the month since 1995 is 25.9F.  This November came in at 32.8F, the first time it has ever been above freezing.  Only two other times has it been over 30F, 30.5F in 1999 and 30.2F last year.

My average mean for Jan-Nov is 38.2F.  This year it is 40.3F.  It is going to be interesting to see how the rest of the winter plays out.

Drought spreading in Oklahoma. At least it isn't here yet.  In this part of the state, rainfall has been around 35-37", or very close to the yearly average.

Ya got snow.  I hate snow.


So far, I've been on the dry side of that.  Getting the cold (currently 23), but no precip.  We had rain ahead of it while still on the warm side.

Some moderation  early next week I guess.

Lows got as low as 6 in Oklahoma on Friday morning.  This is more like one of the coldest parts of January.

I'm hoping it's happening now and will get over it for the rest of the winter.  I don't want a cold Jan/Feb.

There are winter advisories out for south Alabama.  It will probably shut us down for a week since there's the possibility of an inch of snow.    ;)

Parts of the Texas Gulf Coast, such as Corpus Christi had enough snow for some kids to build a snowman.  More of the South has also been turning white, like Atlanta.

Huge temp difference here yesterday.
8 PM last night it was 75 here or 23C. 20 miles to my NW at the Ocala airport it was 48. 8C.
I have never seen that big of  a disparity in such a short distance.

The swings will get you.  Go somewhere in a t-shirt in the morning and end up wishing you'd brought a jacket by afternoon.  Or the other way around.

Forecast here is for mid 50s Monday and mid 30s Tuesday.

Yep, we got about an inch of snow and this morning traffic has been almost non-existent coming by the house....

I'm waiting for the reports to start coming in of "Here, Bubba, hold my beer and watch this..." incidents.....:lol:
