Our predicted high today is 80, and we're almost there already so I am still wearing shorts and a light, short sleeved blouse today.

But on Thursday the front should be here, and the prediction is for a high of 56! That's an almost 25 degree drop in just two days.

I do secretly love the non-catastrophic changes in weather that we get here from time to time, like this one. They make life interesting.

Polar Vortex, anyone?

We were in a Florida yesterday, flew back to Chicago just in time. It's 23 degrees and snowing right now.

BRRRR!!

It's 41 here right now and raining, and the predicted high has dropped to 47. I turned the heat on last night, though, so it's nice and warm inside. I'll need to switch from shorts to warmer clothing when I go outside, but thank goodness there will probably be no icy roads to cope with.

It's a balmy 60F right now. The blue sky is clear, but then it is so 360 days/yr. I am about to take a walk. In shorts and T-shirt. It will hit 80F midday.

It's minus 13 C (8.6 F) outside right now at 7 am, and it's not going to go above freezing point all day. Actually, for several days! But at least it's sunny.

I guess the ice wine harvest will be early this year!

That Polar Vortex needs to move......

The blocking high over the west coast won't move east until it does...and we won't get any rain as a result.

going to do a rain dance in the hopes it moves

it would be a win-win for North America

But you still can get high even with those record lows.

We left Estes the morning of the 12th, looks like it got colder all day brrrrrr. It's a balmy 20 F in MO. It's getting colder here too.

I arrived at Houston on Nov 7, great weather, not too hot or cold.


What a difference a few days can make...


Yesterday, Nov 13, I wore all the warm clothes I brought and I still wasn't happy. Last night's low was near freezing but today the wind has died down a bit which helps.


Thailand was 90ish the day I left; I have some adjusting to do...

Yet another day of weather in the teens. Barely broke 20F today.


At least I am not in Buffalo.

Holy cow! That's cold.

We had a reprieve from last week's unseasonably cold weather. It was an uttely gorgeous 71 and sunny today, with low humidity and a light breeze. Just completely perfect, in other words. I got out in it and enjoyed it, because tomorrow we are supposed to have rain and I suppose more cold weather is on its way.


Yes, Buffalo looks miserable this week.

I was in East Texas for the last few days, just north of Beaumont. Weather was nice Wednesday and Thursday with cool mornings and 70+ and DRY for those two days. Today was 60's and wet when I headed back to The Woodlands, on the north side of Houston.

When I went for my 1.5 miles walk to the public library at 9:00 this morning the temperature was 27F with a pretty stiff wind that made it feel like 20F.

Pretty refreshing walk if you're properly dressed for it.

We have a tornado warning for a line of storms that should arrive shortly. We probably won't have a tornado, but there was a lot of damage and apparently some injuries from a tornado just a few minutes ago in Amite, Louisiana (about an hour drive from here), as well as several other nearby towns. So far, we just have a lot of very strong/gusty winds moving into New Orleans.

How tragic to have this happen just before Christmas! Those poor people.


Edited to add: latest reports on our local news channels say there was also tornado damage in Mississippi from this storm.

Looking at the current radar, it looks like we (Houston) got lucky but those storms look bad over in NO area. Hopefully, they will pass soon.
