Been a long winter, hasn't it? Hope it is the last freeze for you.

My station low this morning was 31. Ice on my CoCoRaHS gauge and on the grass.
I am in a low elevation area, so town and official is almost always higher.

Yes, I'm done with it.
I do enjoy the weather here but after a long winter, the thought of warmth is very inviting.

This astonishing pattern of weather this year for the W/SW continues as another trough digs down the coast. This looks more like late winter than approaching mid May. We here have a decent shot of rain next weekend, unheard of this time of year as May is our driest month. I'm wondering if it's getting to the point that if a pattern change to the "norm" doesn't start soon, our monsoon may suffer, or at least have a very late start.

Mid May through the end of June are normally wet period but these temperatures are still low for this time of year.  Still wearing the jacket with a stretch of mid 40's for highs. Down to 23°F a couple of days ago.

If you believe the CPC Crystal Ball graphs, they show cool-ish and damp into June on the One Month:

Just saw where a couple of models are showing that the Houston area will be inundated with rain for at least the next 6 days, they may very well go under again.

Here, a spring storm passing through has a swath of winter in it.

Never thought I would say this but they can keep it.
Freeze warning up here tonight.  Many farmers have or are planting but doubt seedlings are up yet its been so cool.

This long wave trough is nuts...what 3500 miles wide and digging into Mexico...and with all the short waves embedded within? Crazy stuff with an unheard of good shot at rain this weekend for us down here.
This is not May.

Temperature below freezing for over 5 hours. Guess that qualifies as a hard freeze. 28 F now.

I hope neighbors to the north are finally done with this winter weather.

Just maybe this is the last one.  [tup]  One 36° on Sunday morning always has potential.  :sad:

Mowing the weeds at 56 F felt positively warm. Maybe it won't get warmer than 70 this summer???

It’s 56 and mostly sunny here, too, this afternoon. It does feel pretty good.  Tomorrow is Minnesota’s annual fishing opener when about 500,000 anglers will take to the lakes and streams to fish for walleye, northern pike and other species.   The ice is out of the lakes and temperatures for much of the state should be in the low to mid 60s, so it looks to be a good day to cast a hook in the water.

Feel sorry for you guys out there with that lingering cold weather.
But, that's why I'm down here. Can't handle that cold anymore.
Hopefully it warms up soon and stays that way.

Oklahoma City TV weatherman, Mike Morgan  said Oklahoma City has had 10 straight months of below normal temperatures.  Global Warming skeptics will surely love that.

Beautiful pic of the soon-to-be cut low spinning off the west coast as the jet carves it off into the mid-upper plains.

Love this stuff, but this is not May.

Just noticed on the Valentine Police website.  Check out the wheels grass on one side snow on the other.

Last year they made a big fuss about the cool April and hot May (Winter >>  Summer, skip Spring).  This year both months so far are near normal, but wet.  Thing is, we've had one day in the 80s and the next day in the 60s a few times.  The odd swings are still there, but they make the month look 'normal'.

Nice T-storms yesterday, airport picked up 1.08" making it officially the wettest day in May in recorded history (our average is 0.23" for the month). More knocking on the door now too.
Did I mention this is not May?

I haven't lived up north in a while but I can't ever remember cutting the grass with snow on it.
Is this something new or is this guy just having some fun.
