Drama free weather
« on: January 11, 2021, 1149 UTC »
I've been enjoying the drama free weather here in the Mid Atlantic. Cold, but no storms. 19F this morning which seems to be the low.

Not much rain likely the next two+ weeks:

The weather in southern New England this winter has been a breeze so far.  While we have had 17 inches of snow for the season, only two inches have fallen since Dec. 21. Through late January, no snow is predicted here. Locally, temperatures have been running 5-10 degrees above normal with high's in 40's and low's in 20's.  This morning's brisk 17 degrees may have been the coldest of the season - very surprising not to have dipped into single digits or below zero by now.  It'll be interesting to see whether the local sugaring operations need to tap before Groundhog's Day, 20's to 40's is perfect for sap flow. 

This weather has got to be a crushing blow to Florida tourism - the pandemic, delayed/cancelled spring training, and weather not severe enough to drive impromptu travel.  There was one winter I went south for a couple of weeks just to get away from daily sub-zero weather at home.

Mild (for January) here in Michigan as well.  Daytime highs low to mid 30s and nighttime low around 20.
Ponds around here don't have enough ice on them to safely walk on.  Wind calm to light, no snow... lots of
people out walking and riding bikes in the various parks.
