A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Hi, Wab.

Looks like ya'll are going to get right nippy shortly.

It's about 74 here now. Temps will drop a bit later this week but the lows will only be between 43-46, with highs in 50's. Then, it looks like they're going back up.

We might get some rain starting tonight and going on through Wed. Chance of showers, anyway. Whether we get anything or not, remains to be seen.

Awoke to a much milder air coming through from the south, leaving temps well above freezing. It is only a slight reprise though, because the wind is due to come back from the north, and Siberia, mid week.

Happy Sunday :)

Warm ...~Busterpony agrees. It was 86.4ºF. I think planting winter rye in my yard may have been hopeful thinking.

Same here today Wab. We could see a mix out of the storms in the area. MN is expecting a good snow, though. We had a bit of good soaking rain and we'll take that, even though it wasn't much. Have a good weekend!

Over the last 30 hours the temperature has slowly risen from below freezing to a balmy 6c.
It should stay above freezing for the weekend, which should melt all the remaining snow and the resulting ice....we hope!


Sandi .. still be careful anytime there is ice and snow on the ground .. you don't need to fall and have a big set back !!!

Thank you for not hitting me, wab.

I'm not sure what the temp got to; it was supposed to be something like 73 or 74 but I think it got higher than that. Or maybe it was all the layers I had on, even though they were lightweight cotton.


How much above normal is that ?? Sounds like your having Indian Summer !!

White rabbits X3, wab!

We are warm here but cloudy. It's currently 69F, with highs in lower 70's for the next few days. Lows in the 50's. I'm enjoying it while I can, as I know colder weather will be around soon.

I am glad I have my outside plants ready for winter. I don't think it actually got down to freezing that night last weekend. The birdbath didn't have a bit of ice.

We got our frost! It was 25 when I woke up, and now is up to 28. Probably won't get much above freezing all day, so I shall stay in bed!!

There is a silly rumour in some of the press that we are going to have the coldest winter for 100 years! I do not know where they get the information from...as according to the BBC weather page, future forecasting challenges even the most experienced meteorologist.


Monthly forecasting
The weather beyond about a week ahead stretches even the most experienced weather forecaster. Complex numerical weather forecast models from the Met Office and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are run many times for the month (and season) ahead to build up a picture of the likelihood of different weather types affecting the UK.


It is the first of December tomorrow, this year has flown by!!
