The 99 freeway is definitely dangerous even with a little bit of fog.

I lived in Fresno in 1990.

We have been having unusually warm weather this weather in eastern PA. I ate dinner outside last night. I don't ever remember eating outside in the middle of February ever. I checked my phone around 7 and it was 60 degrees and felt like 58. That's very warm for these parts. I remember a lot of winters looking at the river frozen, not this year.

I think this is pretty typical for Gulf states, but February is always a weird month in east Texas. Every year in February I get tempted by the fabulous weather to go to the nursery and buy annuals to plant. But it's best not to because there's nearly always a really cold snap either later in February or even an ice storm in March. Not expecting one of those this year but hey, anything could happen.

It's been a really mild winter here though. Yesterday it was 80 degrees with tons of sun. I couldn't resist - had to get out and work in the yard some. BUT NO PLANTING!

Childress, TX had a high temperature of 100F on March 12, 1989. It seems like late-winter heat in Texas is more likely to happen when the prevailing weather pattern is a trough in the West and a ridge in the East, because the winter of 1988-1989 had a prevailing pattern very similar to this winter. Childress also had high temperatures of 100F on March 20, 1907 and March 27, 1971. Besides this year, Childress has had 90F February temperatures in 1904, 1962, 1979, 1996 and 2006.

The lowest record high temperature in Philadelphia is 62F on January 21, 1959 and January 16, 2007. Every other record high temperature in Philadelphia has been warmer than that. In fact, the record high for the month of February in Philadelphia is 79F on February 25, 1930.

Eek, that might have been the coldest year ever in Fresno. I think it hit sub 15 degrees a few times that year.
Winters aren't anywhere near that harsh anymore. Anyways, thanks for the response

Source showing it was super cold in 1990

I think weve had 3 days go below freezing this winter here in the San Antonio area. Weve had a few days in the high 80's lately. I even went swimming last weekend and there were plenty of people out in the water.

The Rocky Mountain front in Montana actually has even more dramatic temperature swings than the CO Front Range. Montana holds the world record for largest 24 hour temperature change, when the temperature rose from -54 to +49 in Loma on January 15, 1972.
