It was 71 and sunny in San Diego today. In Niagara Falls it was 42 and raining. Sure glad I'm not there!

We've gotten up to 70 for the last 2 days, and supposed to be 69 today. Then another dip in temps.

It's a balmy 35 F this morning. Hopefully it won't rain, not supposed to. I think most of the ice is gone. I just might be able to remove the 15 buckets from the front porch and the 3 bins I managed to find for the den.

Even supposed to see some sun today but looking a solid grey out there right now.

Driveway is solid ice, if I drive real slow I should be able to get out.

no advisories here but we are expecting snow and temperatures in the low 20's. Time to put the bed clothes on the asparagus!

A round of precipitation will hit northern New Mexico Sunday night
through Monday night with lowering snow levels and the potential for
several inches of snow accumulation in the mountains and northeast
highlands/plains. Winter Weather Advisories may be required.

In 60+ degree weather today, I sadly marched out to the garage back by the alley and then with heavy steps I carried the Snow Shovels up by the house and leaned them beside the back steps. Ready!

It was a beautiful sunrise today as I went out to get the paper. Supposed to be around 70 today, and stormy tomorrow.

We had a minor snow event. 3 cm total Thursday to Friday. It didn't stick around.

It's currently mostly sunny and 7°C (47°F) and is predicted to go up to 14°C (57°F). Looks like spring is here. There are tiny bumps on some of the trees, where there will be leaves. My chives are up.

4" of snow so far in SE South Dakota.
Last Thursday our neighbor was mowing their yard.
If you don't like the weather in South Dakota just wait a few hours.....

From Severe weather terminology (United States) - Wikipedia,
Quote:
Areal Flood Warning (FLW) – General or areal flooding of streets, low-lying areas, urban storm drains, creeks, and small streams in which there is a serious threat to life or property is occurring, imminent, or highly likely. Flood warnings are usually issued for flooding that occurs more than six hours after the excessive rainfall, or when flooding is imminent/occurring but is not rapid enough to prompt a flash flood warning. These warnings are issued on a polygonal basis by the local Weather Forecast Office and are generally in effect for six to twelve hours.
