Here in the Interior, BC, warming up to -7c/19F from -22c/-8F with clear blue skies and fine white glitter in the air- the Eagles flew past the window whilst I was having breakfast -then I look to North Norfolk where we used to live getting a coastal battering...

33F at the moment. Warming up to 40F Monday, and by Wed 52F.

Finally seems more seasonal temps are returning, although it was nice to have a real winter for a bit.

Warming up here too this week. Above average temps at least until the weekend. Awww yeah.

As an aside, 52F is seasonal for coastal BC in January? Jesus, I moved to the wrong place, didn't I?

Except I'm in Chicago.

Possibility of 50s at the weekend. This is March weather in a month where the past few years we've had days with -40F wind chills.

Makes me wonder how hard February is going to screw us now, though.

Yeah, but it's a month gained nevertheless. I thought the weather wizards had promised a hard winter?

I think it was supposed to be a weak La Nina, so it wasn't supposed to be as cold as it could have been. I did hear we were supposed to get slightly above average snow, which looked to be true in December, but there's no snow on the horizon for at least a week and even then probably just an inch or less.

Get the shorts out, it's 41F out.

Supposed to rain and turn to snow this evening though.

Currently awaiting a weather bomb. Apparently due here overnight so have battened down assorted hatches and made sure the parapool can't take off to next doors section.
