Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Another "cool" front blew through Indy last night with a reinforcing short of cool air.  Lots of wind and temps today in the 60's.  Maybe some light frost tomorrow.  We are still way down in the rainfall department but we got half an inch Wed. afternoon and that was as much as we received in all of August!

Smiley Very Happy  It's Christmas Eve!  You're not supposed to mow!  I'm very disappointed we had a little rain this morning and it's just too wet to rake leaves!  NOT!  Guess I'll start on the eggnog instead! Smiley Happy

Don't forget the liquor. Smiley Wink 

 

Leaves are falling like crazy now, all cleaned up this AM, can't tell it now.  They were supposed to have fallen already. Smiley Sad

 

Heard Dallas got the heavy rains around noon that we're expecting tonight. Smiley Mad

We had rain all day long yesterday. Nothing heavy, just a nice long soaking rain.  Was freezing outside, but we desparately needed the rain.  At least it wasn't the snow we had last year.

 

Gonna be chilly for a while now.

AND WINTER HATES US! Smiley Mad Smiley Very Happy

 

We only got about 1-2" of snow last night but light snows supposed to continue for next 48 hours. Hasn't been above freezing for 18 days.

 

Sure not looking forward to traveling the roads today with a 60 mile round trip to my brothers. Also have to pick daughter/grandson up at the airport in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. And have seen where there have been major flight delays about everywhere. Well, it will be worth it. Smiley Wink

 

Got my 1st unexpected Christmas present today and aren't lady bugs supposed to be lucky? Had a glass of juice sitting down for an hour, took a big drink, and had a live lady beetle stuck clear in the back of my throat. Barely got it spit out before going down. Yuk!

Keep that snow up there, Uni.  Think my sisters in Kettering are dealing with it also.  Below freezing here tonight and tomorrow, then warming up.  Bad news for OSU suspending Pryor next year -- sometime you wonder if those folks have a brain!

Snow swung below Mich over night.  Too bad for the people trying to leave via the airports.  Here Delta cancelled over 200 flights this morning.  Hopefully the airports will get cleared up so that those who have already traveled will have an easy trip home Sunday evening.

Looks like many in the South (Texas doesn't consider itself part of that) will be getting a rare white Christmas.  Guess they're just thrilled! Smiley Surprised  I don't understand why some enjoy snow. Smiley Sad

 

Freeze tonight, but in the 40's tomorrow night.

 

Be careful driving in that snow, Uni!

26 right now in Frisco, just north of Dallas.  SUPPOSED? to get up to mid 40's today, but not holding my breath. Never made it out of the 30s yesterday.

We picked up about 5 inches of "lake effect" snow last night with another inch possible this morning. I was planning a nice quiet day on the couch doing nothing but watching football, now it looks like I'll be out shoveling snow. :smileymad:

 

They're saying a big storm is possible for the New Year's holiday and into next weekend, it's supposed to be near 50 with rain here on Friday, stay tuned. :smileywink:

Around 29˚ on the 26th and was only 34 at 11A!

 

28˚ now and it only took a 5 min. drive from 45˚ in the garage.  I HATE WINTER!  Smiley Mad

 

Looks REALLY bad back East!

I think that "rain and about 50" on New Years Eve is what is forecast everywhere.  Same in Indy.  My dad in North Carolina said that is what his forecast is also.   They got 2" of snow and highs in the 30's.  He is only 9 miles from the SC border.  We missed out on this past Friday night's snow - got about 2" ourselves.  The western part of Indiana got triple that.

Some east coast states have been forecasted with a warming trend.  That would not be good if they do get a warm up during the day and then freezing temps over night.  Snow melts and then freezes.

I heard they are NOT planning on cancelling New Year's Eve though!  Go, NYC!

I have heard snow thunder lots of times.  Usually happens during snow storms.  Every now and then see some snow lightning.

That is the only ting that I thought was kind of cool to see and hear during a snow storm.  Shoveling snow and then suddenly, a clap of thunder, and the flash of lightning.  But the lightning is really rare.

What a difference a day makes!  50's today, 40's tonight; rain coming but back up in the high 60's to low 70's.

Yeah, we're also headed for a warm up at the end of this week. Seems like we haven't seen temps in the 50's for a month and a half. New Year's Eve/Day should be a real mud hole with the rain and melting snow. Smiley Sad

 

Thursday looks weird - "Ice Pellets"??? I've heard of sleet, hail, freezing rain but not necessarily ice pellets. Do you use salt pellets to melt ice pellets? Smiley Surprised

 

Well looked it up and it turns out ice pellets are the same as sleet. You would think weatherunderground.com would use the same weather terms as the USNWS.

You could be right Spd. "Sleet" always did seem for like a strange term for little tiny balls of ice. Smiley Wink

I heard they are NOT planning on cancelling New Year's Eve though!  Go, NYC!


Usually happens when there is a tremendous snow or sleet storm going on.  You don't normally see it when it is snowing the light, fluffy stuff but you see it often during heavy snow storms when the snow is heavy and wet and / or mixing with sleet.  It has to do with warm air aloft, mixing with the colder air mass.

That is the only ting that I thought was kind of cool to see and hear during a snow storm.  Shoveling snow and then suddenly, a clap of thunder, and the flash of lightning.  But the lightning is really rare.


The lightning is always there, you just may not always be able to see it - as there is thick, snow laden clouds between the ground and where the cloud to cloud lightning is.  If it is nighttime, you have a much better chance of seeing the flash.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundersnow

Ice Pellets = Sleet.  Don't know why they just don't pick one term.  I had thought that the terms meant something slightly different but they are one in the same, AFAIK.
