It reached 70F degrees here today. Was also overcast and rained later in the day. Nice for my lettuce and cilantro in the garden.

What do you know. You are in Canada. You think it is summertime with that temperature.

Earlier today, we had snow pellets that looked like little styrofoam balls. Then there are very light "snow showers" at the moment and -1C (30f). I just heard the forecast for Xmas Eve: 12C (54F) so, no white Xmas here this year.

We have a refreshing 31F here along the river. The sun was shining earlier, now it's getting dark.

Same here. For Christmas, the temps are going back up to the 50's.

Not all that cold here, but CRAZY windy. I thought I was going to blow right out of the grocery store parking lot! Gusts up to 80 mpr today, and semis were tossed around up on the highway like they were toys. This is just one of at least 15 that went down today. No serious injuries, thankfully.

And on the opposite side of the country, on the first day of winter our temp today reached sixty-one. Last year at this time we were buried and bracing for even more snow.
