Below Average

Even though only 4 days have passed for January the amount of degrees we are below normal is very extraordinary. Since January 1st our warmest temperature has been 34f on January 1st at 12am. The coldest temperature we have been since January 1st is 5f on January 3rd. Our average high is suppose to be 40f  for this time period and this month so far as only averaged 26f for highs, 14 degrees below normal. It would definitely be lower if the midnight 34f was thrown out. The average low for this time of year is suppose to be 25f and it has only averaged 13f for lows, 12 degrees below normal.

The next few weeks it looks like it will be very difficult to reach 32f and it seems we may get a big snow storm the end of this week. We also look to have quite a bit more snow before January is over,  I am loving this old school winter. If we get a snow cover from the Thursday-Friday snow storm we may actually go below zero for a period of time for lows.

I know it is cold across the whole eastern part of the United States. I have seen the freeze warnings all the way into South Florida and that is ridicules.  I have also heard this may not be the coldest we will see this winter which is exciting and scary all at the same time. Imagine if a large storm dropped snow all the way into the deep south. How cold would Florida be able to reach? Not that I wish that on anyone who lives in the southern states. I am just thinking about how crazy it would be.

Stay Warm,

    Quite cold here too, Jake, after new years day. Looking back at the journals from last year, it was in the fifties the first week of 2009. Time to hunker down, the powers that be did predict a colder, and wetter than normal winter for us. Hope it kills some buggies at the least, but no plants! Stay warm yourself. 🙂

    It has been very cold here in Louisiana. We got down to 24 last night and are expecting even colder temps in the next few nights. This is so unusual, but not unheard of, to have such cold weather here. It sounds like you are really enjoying your cold weather. Stay warm.

      I am actually in a love/hate relationship with the cold, lol. My blood is still Florida thinned and I can’t get warm enough. I would enjoy the cold more so if we get that big snow Thursday or really any snow at all.

    I hope you got the snow you wanted and I also hope it stays up there and doesn’t make it all the way down here. I’ll go visit snow but I don’t want it here. Crazy weather.
