It looks more like Nome, Alaska than Albuquerque right now!

Well, back in November I told a friend I wanted wind and rain this year. She'd like to kill me right about now, 'cause wind and rain is all we got.

The all-time record high temperature in Pittsburgh for December is 74F, set on December 3, 1982. If the high temperature only reaches 70F in Pittsburgh this weekend, it won't even be the warmest temperature in December this decade. The high temperature reached 72F on December 22, 2013.

Anyway, I'm getting tired of mild Decembers in the eastern U.S. This makes five in a row. The last actually cold December in the eastern U.S. was December 2010.

Uh, no. This is how the jet stream is positioned over the U.S. today, December 13, 2015:

It's not zonal in the least. It's highly amplified, with a deep trough over the West, and and strong ridge over the East.

It snowed last night and into this morning here in Albuquerque. I got about 4-5 inches at my place. It started out with a freezing rain yesterday morning.

In fact, that was all that was forecast for Albuquerque out of this system, was rain. It had been too warm lately in Albuquerque for snow, or so everybody thought. Highs reached into the low sixties on some days last week, the lows were in the mid to low thirties. The normal temps for this time of year in Albuquerque are highs in the mid to high forties and lows in the mid to low twenties. Today was, and tonight is going to be, exactly in those normal ranges for this time of year. It's supposed to snow again a little tomorrow night and this next system will usher in colder air to keep us below normal, with thirties for highs and the teens for lows the next few days.

I love this sort of weather, it puts me in a good mood and makes me highly anticipatory for Christmas. I put up my lights on Friday morning and my tree on Friday night. I had tamales to eat this weekend as well. I was so thankful it ended up snowing after all. Last night and this morning were just magical to me. It's such a cozy feeling. I watched Christmas and winter-themed movies all weekend. I'm thankful for another year and another pleasant Holiday Season and more wonderful winter/late fall memories to add to all the others over the years that have made me love this kind of weather and time of year so much.

It snowed all day yesterday. Had about 3 inches. It's melted off the roads. Still hugging tightly to the grass.

I expect it to be gone tomorrow.

My first winter living in southern Florida, so far it's been around 80 every day.
Lows around 65.

So warm here in Chicago. Was in the 60''s yesterday, 50's the next few days.

Supposed to have highs in the upper 30's for a few days later this week, but then the extended forecast is back to mid 40's to 50's to end December.

Other than two days forecast for later this week, it seems we aren't set to get ANY days with lows below freezing this entire month. If it hadn't been for two cold days about 3 weeks ago all my summer flowers would still be alive in Chicago.

Oh my gosh, the rain, the rain. It rained hard all weekend long here. BLECH. We've also had tornadoes, thunderstorms, high winds, etc. It feels like a Texas spring here instead of winter!

Hang onto your hats, folks.
