We just keep getting teased with snow, had about 6" on two quick fronts moving through, all caused by by huge drops in temps coming across the lakes. Looks like maybe another 1" tonight and another 1" Monday and another 1" on Tuesday.
I woke up at 3 am, and again at 5:30 (reloaded the woodstove), but didn't think about looking at the outside temps. It was expected to be single digits, and I'm sure it was at least close to that. It was hovering around 20 at 10:30.
Yes, we're supposed to see temps over 50 degrees next week here too. Bizarre patterns for Jan and Feb.
We bottomed out at -1 F at about 7:00 this morning. We already had one morning at -7 back in December. First they were talking warm up next week, then polar air was supposed to overwhelm the moderate air in place. Now it looks like we are going to avoid the deep freeze again. I'm happy with that. As each day passes the sun gets a little higher in the sky and the chances of ice dams on my roof line drops.
Woke up to a couple inches of fresh snow and -7C temps so I took the time to plow it despite it still snowing. It's supposed to get much colder tomorrow so I didn't want to put it off. It's also quite windy so some parts might drift back in.
We're in a warm spell. Next weekend looks like it will be cold enough to support snow or ice, but it's supposed to be dry. Plenty of midweek rain during both of the upcoming two weeks, starting tomorrow.
