    Today it got up to around 40 here in northern Illinois. Forecast for tomorrow and Friday: 48 and mostly sunny. In fact, it's supposed to be in the 30s or 40s with clear weather everyday until next Wednesday at least.

    Keep in mind, this is early January in northern Illinois. It should be 10 with snow on the ground. Very strange. Whatever though, I'll take it. I think we've had a total of maybe an inch of snow so far this year. While winter is not close to being over yet, the mild weather we've had the first month and a half is very nice. Especially considering the harsh winters we've had the past several years.

    It's supposed to hit 45º here in Metro Detroit tomorrow. Luckily I am off of work on Fridays so this will be a great time to get in a nice wintertime run. Too bad there's no snow to make it a bit more scenic.

    Same here in Metro Detroit. We've had basically no snow accumulation this year.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Low-to-mid 50F range today in NW Ohio. Normal high for this day in January is 32F (on or about). Saturday's forecast calling for a high in the low-to-mid 40F range. No real major changes in predicted high temperatures for the next 7 to 10 days. Then.....

    .....it's the end of the world, I tell ya!

    Winds aloft details are indicating that the seasonably cold Arctic air that has stayed away from most of the U.S. will begin to drop late next weekend. We will see it first in the northern plains, you know, the usual below-zero readings that dot the map in mid-to-late January. That cold air will slam into Minneapolis and frigidly amble down to the lower Great Lakes. Expect readings well-below normal, my friends.

    You heard it here, first!

    I keep telling myself long range forecasts are terribly inaccurate.

    It got up to 55 this afternoon across the Chicago area. My department picked a great afternoon/evening to head to our suburban downtown for a meeting and dinner. It was gorgeous out...with a beautiful sunset too! And a ton of people out and about. It felt more like those first nice days of March, rather than early January.

    It was nice by the pool this afternoon.

    While it was warm here for the past few days (got up to 55 on at my house on Friday) the forecast is looking more like winter for next weekend. High on Friday is only gong to be 24... Not sure, but I think that this is still warmer than average for this time of year.

    Personally, I am not complaining one bit. Now that Christmas is over, it can warm back up to the low 70's at any point.

    The 7-8 inches of snow we got the previous week had mostly melted by this weekend. Got up to 50 on Friday

    I've been taking full advantage of the warm weather and have used the opportunity to take care of all the garden maintenance chores I didn't finish in the fall. Come spring I'm geared up to get the garden going as early as possible.

    We raked and mulched leaves. If the weather doesn't get markedly colder soon, we'll have the first daffodils in about two weeks. Dandelions are already blooming as is the henbit.

    Friday I was off of work and it was 55º in the early afternoon so I was able to get in a nice 9 mile run. This coming Wednesday it is supposed to be about 50º again and I'm very tempted to take the afternoon off of work to go hit the trails for another nice outdoor run. But I'm all talk so I wont.

    WT freaking F??? 7-8 inches.... We got maybe an inch and I am an hour north of you! That is not right. I still have not fired up the snow blower (other than for a tune up).

    I almost pulled out my lawnmower to mulch the late season leaves that had fallen since I put it away. It stayed put away and the leaves will stay until spring.

    You're not the first to express surprise about the distribution of snowfall, but you are the first to say that isn't 'right'. Yes, Junior and I went sledding several times last week.

    After an abnormally cold December (50s for most days), we just had about 10 days of very warm weather (70s). Typically, it's in the middle 60s around here this time of year. The forecast calls for this typical sunny, dry, and 67 for the next 7 days. Unfortunately, we need rain. This is the "wet" season and winter precipitation is critical.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Today, it was 55 and sunny. Tomorrow, we're supposed to get 6 inches of snow, followed by winds gusting up to 35 mph, temps in the 20s, and wind chills approaching zero. First sizable snowfall of the season. We've been spoiled for much of this winter with mild weather, but now we face the reality that is winter.

    Unfortunately we are supposed to get less than an 1" from the same system. I want my winter snowstorms dammit!

    "They" say we should expect 5-10" by tomorrow night.
