COLD in Phoenix lately. Highs today in the 50s, lows around freezing or lower. Very unusual this time of year. Should be in the upper 60s or low 70s. Its far too cold for me here. lolol

Nah, you can do that to us from June through October, too. That is unless you like 100-118 degrees.

My skis are taunting me from the closet. This winter is miserably mild so far. My girlfriend bought me a very, very, very nice winter coat for my birthday last month which of course means this winter will be so mild I don't need to use it. I'm miserable with the weather right now.

The El Nino Torch is in full effect here in the east central USA. It was in the low 70s F a couple days ago (ave high is 45) and it's only cooled down to highs in the 50s. Current forecast has 70s again around Christmas!


You people in the west are cooler than average, east is way above average.

The easy way to think of the pattern is a complete reversal of last year. Much more snowfall and cooler temperatures in the West and well above average temperatures in the East with next to no snowfall. Needless to say, things had better improve a bit by January for more snow chances at the least.

Everyone is saying "It's so warm, El Niño!". Wow.

El Niño here has been all "Colder than average this year, way above average snowfall this winter".

It seems the fortunes of the Southwest have turned lately. The Rio Grande is wetter than its been in a while this year, our reservoirs are filling up, our mountains are full of snow. The drought map only shows "abnormally dry" areas. Perhaps this will be the year the SW says sayonara to long term drought!

Another day in the mid 50's with sun in Chicago.

Looks warm the next 15 days as well with highs in the 40's and 50's.

50's on tap for Christmas Eve and Christmas

Monday night, I received an alert from the local ABC affiliate telling me to expect 2-5" of snow overnight. To my knowledge, there was no snow in the forecast until that point. It was bone dry at that moment. I went to bed.

Tuesday morning, we're buried. And it kept snowing until yesterday evening. We've got about a foot. Worst storm we've had in at least three years (it was windy too, and cold {10's-20s}).

I'll try and get a pic up.
