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!

Was 77 for most of the day, and extremely windy.  Dropped to around 64 by 6P where I was.  Guess the Arctic blast and freeze will be delayed a day.

We're down to 17 degrees at 11 PM.  The wind is literally howling and we have had light snow for the last hour or two. YUCK!!!!!!!   Took Alfie out.  He took a quick one and ran to the door.  The cold by itself is not what bothers him....but combined with the wind it really bothers him......and ME too.

I cannot imagine what that feels like, nor do I wish to find out!  Stay warm!  We'll be getting ours soon, and will feel that cold to us.  I HATE WINTER!!!!!

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

Well SPD.....I also HATE WINTER.....and I've been trying to think of an excuse to spend the cash to pack up the car and head way, way south.

 

Last night it got down to 5.1 degrees above zero under a clear sky.  Right now....at 10:52 AM....it is 19.4 degrees and it has clouded up.  We got a little snow but no much.  Biggest problem was the terrible wind.  It made taking Alfie for his walk an absolute torturous experience.

 

I took him to Petco and we purchased him a new jacket which he seems to love.

Anyway.....finally the wind has died down to more endurable levels. But having to breath that super cold air is rough for a guy like me with COPD.  The bronchials and lungs do not like it at all.

When you have dogs with no hair and no body fat you have to resort to mortifying clothing.

 

 

He was actually so upset at having to wear these I gave them to a friend and he stuck with his regular coat. Smiley Very Happy

One would loose a lot of blood trying to get a cat to wear those things!

 

It was supposed to be 28 last night, think it was around 29-30.

 

Yeah, better get to a warmer climate and have sunshine most days and rarely be holed up because of snow.  In a few days, it will be in the 70's again.

 

Just covering up a few pots last night, I was getting winded with the cold. Smiley Sad

 

Did the FL crops freeze?

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

The next Winter system for Wed. night and Thursday looks to hit the Southern part of the Midwest and not Indiana, Illinois and Ohio.  This one has lots of warmer air with it, so could be sleet, freezing rain and snow.  If it moves further North could be messy!

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

Nothing close to above freezing temps predicted here for the next 10 days and single digits at night with a "few" inches of snow possible Wed. night into Thurs. Now paying the price for the mild October and November we had.

 

I just read 25 - 29 tonight in West Palm Beach, Fl. and 33 in Miami, the natives down there will be dressed like Eskimos. :smileywink:

It's already 39 here in North Florida and the winds been whipping all day. I think we hit a high of 44 today, but with the wind chill it felt below freezing all day. I have the space heater crankin'.

It may reach freezing here in Indianapolis, later this week though the weather service is not "officially" mentioning it in the forecasts.  That is the weather service doing a CYA thing.  In the "Forecast Discussion" tab, they hint at WAA (Warm Air Advection) but because of the snow cover, sometimes the computer models do not take that chilling factor in and keep temperatures too warm.

 

Yours and my best bets are Thursday or Friday.  Accuweather has 33 Thursday and 30 Friday here and 30 and 29 for "Chicago" which is centered on 60602 AFAIK.  BUT if the WAA is stronger it could inch up.  The next two weeks forecasts are for highs in the 20s at least on Accuweather's 15 day long range forecast, thru Dec 27.  we will see.

If it were 39 here, I'd be out washing the car. :smileyvery-happy:

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

Wendi, we have a son and daughter-in-law who live in Ocala, FL.  I suspect he won't be using his swimming pool for a while.  I guess it used to be a heated pool but it used enormous amounts of power to do the job and he decided it definitely was NOT worth it.  So he disconnected the heater.

 

I don't think we're going to get quite as cold tonight as we did last night. at 6:30 Pm it is 22.8 degrees.  Perhaps we're over the worst of it....for a while at any rate.  I'm sure more is coming.
