It is clear, 73F, with 0% probability of rain today. Perfect timing!

Yesterday's official high was 100F (our thermometer in the shade read 105F). Today the official predicted high is 102F. Time to head north.

Chilly here with chance of frost tonight. We're just west enough here in NW Ohio not be in the path of the storm. Hopefully it will melt off fast for you!

So far my area (SE of the eastern end of Lake Ontario) will be on the barest of fringes of the worst predicted precipitation rates. But all it takes is a little change in wind direction ...I have the hatches all battened down.

Take care, those of you in snow and ice country!

It's beautiful here today. 80F with clear, sunny skies and a light breeze.

This freak big snow expected here tonight and tomorrow is quite a shock to my system. If it is really bad, I plan to call in to my office in the morning and take a vacation day. I have an old Land Cruiser in the garage and would have no problems driving the 3 hilly miles I would have to go. But it might be that I just don't want to try.

100 degrees in Phoenix today. As they say it is a dry heat. Beautiful. Lots of pool time.

100 today here in Vegas today too, but the pool water temp is way too cold yet to swim! It was 45 degrees here last weekend for goodness sake! What is up with this...winter to summer no spring!

It's fry an egg on the sidewalk time in Phoenix. 102 today with 5% humidity. Plus we have had .25 inches of rain in the first 3 months of the year - normal is 3 inches. And none so far in April.

Have fun in the snow.

A warm light breeze....

I dream wistfully of the return of spring. One gets very cranky when you have Spring and it goes away. Maybe it is a corollary to Hooke's law. Low 40s for a high tomorrow. Below freezing both nights. Having guests up Saturday to enjoy the warm spring weather by doing something outdoors. Not. They are good sports because they are coming and bringing their board games.

Great weather (under 70* F) & no sweat on cool beer bottles (or me). Cool enough to bake without going to the outdoor kitchen.

IMHO; Hot weather is great for bugs. snakes, lizards, many veggies, and some people on meds.

Perfect JazzFest weather here too, for a change. After all the years with torrential rains or cold snaps, regular JazzFest visitors have the best weather possible this year. The other side of that coin is the traffic, which was awful this afternoon.

Hope you get your spring weather back soon.

Just emerged from a massive line of thunderstorms that produced a tornado warning here... and 2.5" of rain in about 90 minutes. That's over 6" of rain we've had here since Friday night. I could have done without the hail and the wind (and the tornado warning) but we do need the rain... and the next few days calls for a good chance of a few more rains.

The rain is still coming but it should be lighter from here on out for a few hours.

Man oh man, it is hot here today (by local standards) - currently 95 degrees. I am loving it . I recall how, when I was working, Memorial Day was the day you looked forward to after an interminable winter. The prior holiday/day off was MLK day way back in January
