What A Wild Ride

By: cehlbeck , 10:59 PM GMT on February 03, 2014

Well it's now February here in Georgia. It's a time when we can see all four seasons in a matter of days.

Here's an example of the wild ride we've had in the last week:

On Tuesday, 01/28/14 were forecast to get snow (even my Acu-Rite weather station was forecasting it) late in the morning. Right on schedule at about 10:45 am it began snowing and it was long before the ground was covered completely with snow as well as the street. Here in Cherokee County we got the highest recorded amount of snow by the NWS at 3.5" It was about 22 degrees when it started snowing and we didn't leave the mid 20's for the day.

On Thursday morning we reached an overnight low temperature of ZERO here which is highly unusual. While drinking coffee that morning it had warmed up to 6 degrees for us.

On Friday it had warmed up to the low 50's and the sun had come out but we still had plenty of snow on the ground here.

On Saturday it warmed up more into the low 60's.

On Sunday it had warmed even more into the low 70's! Talk about temperature extremes!

You can see a few photos from my skydrive, about the storm here.
