My home is well into the white.

Why can't it just stay above 55 F here?

Yes 55 F would be record-breaking warmth,
but it is also the lowest daytime high that I wouldn't mind seeing in the winter months.

I like the green and blue patches, dreaming of margaritas on the beach right about now.

Neat map btw.

I wonder if the snow cover area is larger than normal for the lower 48 states,
since it seems that every place in the lower 48 that normally
sees some snow already has it.

Your all welcome. I know of another one, but its very inaccurate. This one seems pretty accurate from what I have gathered.

Sorry its been so cold way up there. I always took it for granted that the locals adapted to that brutal cold somewhat, but I guess not. I commend anyone in the northern USA and Canada for braving the brutally cold temperatures. I could not handle it. Even here in the "upper southeast" in northeast Tennessee, when it drops below 25 or 30 people grumble. This latest cold spell when it dropped well below normal into the teens, people were cross and fussy.

I wish I could send some 55 temps your way, as it will be reality for us tomorrow... actually 61 and rain is forecasted here on Christmas Eve and mid 50s for Christmas and rainy again. No white Christmas here again, but no suprise, as a white Christmas is rare around here. Then upper 60s possible by the weekend, but thats even above for us, as our normal high for 12-24 is 50.

Stay warm you all and think spring.
and have a Merry Christmas!

Oh and thundershowers / thunderstorms are possible here tomorrow night.

Ah, it ended up hitting 68 here today, then thundershowers by 7pm. At least one part of the forecast was right.

Merry Christmas everyone.

You know I was just looking at this map and it looks like that currently there is hardly any place in Canada that does not have snow on the ground. Also it looks funny to see so much snow cover that far out to the coast in the Pacific northwest.
