    Predictable Weather

    Most years that I lived in Wisconsin, I could usually expect that the first snows of the year would come on Halloween. I thought that might just be a Wisconsin thing, but there is a half inch of snow on the ground now at the new Colorado nest, and it is coming down hard. So how about it, are there any days of the year you can predict the weather just because of the date?

    There's a 90% chance that Christmas Day will be around 80 d. here.

    It always seems to RAIN on Memorial Day or Labor Day.

    It seems like it always snows the week before Halloween up here. And it gets a really bad cold snap the week before Christmas, when you have to be doing lost of errands.

    Cardinal, I was going to ask how much snow you got down there, just north of you we had a light dusting.

    For a while in Denver growing up we'd always have a wet snow storm that would snap the tree branches, and Chirstmas would always be in the 60s.

    That has changed now... but no predictions really although it ALWAYS seems to snow heavily whenever I try to leave for Thanksgiving....

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    The Deep South.....but not really....

    South Florida is subject to the monsoon type season and from that standpoint is predictable.... 6 months very wet/ very hot/ very humid......6 months 60-80+-degrees/relatively dry/relatively low humidity......

    Fall in Colorado is great 45-65 degree days.....when it snows, it melts fast....only problem can be the 3% humidity days that make you bleed from the nose... and crack your sinus'
