There's currently no snow and it's eight degrees.
Someone help me!
I have plenty of it here in my yard if you want any. You'll have to load it yourself though. LOL
On the bright side, the current forecast, which I know is always likely to change, for next week is rain / snow / precipitation.
But yeah, this winter's been sucky due to a stupid high pressure ridge keeping wet weather from coming over here and, ultimately, it's the reason for our lack of snow. So far we've only had snow on January 7, which melted in a few days, on January 29, which also melted in a few days, and on Monday (February 3), which melted in a few hours, and it was only about 30 degrees the whole day. We still have some patches here and there, but that's it.
We have your snow.. Come and get it...
Was 2F this morning by me - snow is supposed to be coming to our area tonight.
We've had two snow storms this week. We're expecting another one Sunday and the weather weenies are talking the possibility of another one later next week... Six more weeks of this lovely winter weather and that fuzzy little @#$%^& Punxsutawney Phil is going to end up as a pair of slippers.
All we're getting (Herts, UK) right now is bloody rain. The pathways and roads are destroyed, and everywhere is just a boggy mess. Snow would be ideal right about now...at least we could walk on it
Are you in NY? Sounds just like my local forecast
No, I'm close enough a snowball fight though... Connecticut.
... or Philly or anywhere else in the NE at the moment.
Today was the first day in about a week that I've been to our office; coming through some of the side roads the amount of damage reminded me of the major storms that have come through. I ended up having to take several detours to get around roads that were closed due to fallen trees.
It's snowing again, as was expected!
It's raining again here lol
Even something as simple as taking the dog for a walk turns into an expedition, dodging the fast flowing puddles
It's been snowing all through the night, and it's still snowing (6:56 AM right now). I am so happy!
I'm both happy and a nervous wreck.
Went to my aunt's to have dinner; my mom and I, with me as the driver, of course, come back home in an intense snowstorm that's still raging! Streets out where my aunt lives were covered within 10 minutes.
It's even more nerve wrecking when you're going 20 MPH on an INTERSTATE and vehicles, including semis, are passing you going about 50 - 60 MPH. I could barely see the road.
On the bright side, I'm happy because we've finally got a winter storm!
I went to bed around 12:00 AM today, but the forecast said the snow would stop around 3:30 AM. It was still snowing when I went to bed, so it most likely stopped around 3:30 AM.
Here are photos I took this morning:
It was 87 degrees inland today, and just 78 near my work, which is coastal. As you can see, as a Californian, I'd love it if it rained. I'd like to avoid half the state being on fire this summer.
We unfortunately had some pretty bad wildfires for summer 2012 and summer 2013, but they aren't really a "common" thing for us.
Forgive me for not remembering. We don't often get news about the northwest here. It looked like it was going to rain yesterday evening, especially from the heavy rain smell outside. Alas, it didn't. It's been relatively cool since that post, but it's going to be 84* tomorrow. Our final rainy days are about two weeks into April. Meaning if we don't see anything til then, the state is pretty much screwed fiscally and physically.
Not today, but it's been raining lightly here the last few days and snowing in the mountains. Snoqualmie Pass and Stevens Pass, two of the passes area, were closed multiple times on Monday and Tuesday.
