Cold you say? We are storm stayed in Grand Forks ND enroute from Fargo ND to Manitoba after an extended weekend away. Current weather for Grand Forks:
A Blizzard Warning remains in effect until midnight CST tonight.
•Timing: This afternoon into the evening.
•Winds: northwest 30 to 40 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.
•Visibility: Whiteout conditions expected in open country.
•Other impacts: Wind Chill values will approach 50 below zero. These dangerous wind chills will continue through Monday and into Tuesday morning

I29 is closed from the Canadian border to South Dakota. Many of the east west interstates/roads are closed as well.

Even for a Manitoban, this is a blustery night. Great to be in a warm hotel rather than stuck in a snow drift or ditch full of it

Hi

When we get temperatures below about 32F for 4 or 5 hours I have some PVC piping that is expose about 12 feet above the ground for a run of 50 ft and it will freeze if the temperature is below 30F for several hours. We were not home the week end of 1/18. If we had been we would have opened several water faucets to keep the well water flowing so the pipes wouldn’t freeze. The people down the road reported 23F from midnight till 8 am but we didn’t get any frozen pipes.

The farmer a mile away lost his corn crop because of the freeze, the farmers in Belle Glade Florida about 40 miles south of me lost 1,000 acres of corn so the reported temperatures were fairly accurate.

We were in Tampa and the temperatures there hardly got to 32F.

This is some really strange weather.

Got up this morning and while is warm we are experiencing some more unusual weather.

First rain since Nov. temps in the 60s. Lake Shasta levels near all time low, since 1945. Warm temps will be back next week. Lived here 54 years, and never seen trees bloom in Dec. Flowers and bulbs are in mid bloom? Not normal for Redding area, a I can attest. Been changing the last few years, and getting dryer. My friends in the fire fighting arena, tell me the Jan calls have already surpassed calls for first few months of last year. My neighbors and I have ran our sprinklers all winter long.

Hi

We have dense fog again today.

I have never seen this heavy fog several days in a row in this part of the world.

I have seen it on the Mediterranean coast, South African coast, the N. J. sea shore and the west coast of South America but never before in central Florida have I seen it several days in a row like this.
