Default Weather around the Forum..What's yours?

Watching the news this morning for what could be the first day of the new year I see California has snow and freezing temperatures.

Snow in the Arizona Desert? How often does this happen?

In contrast some of our Australian Towns are over 46C (114F)

What is the weather doing in your backyard? We are expecting 41C (105F) here tomorrow.

Neil,

I know we are neighbours as such.

45c right now, by my thermometer, cloud starting, fires about 40Kms away.

Tomorrow, claims of 38C and dry lightning are on the tube at the moment, with thunderstorms at times.

Sounds like fun.

Whatever happens in your back yard usually comes my way 24 hours later. Hence the 41 tomorrow.

We'll have Clarke here soon with the 'beautiful one day,perfect the next' rubbish propaganda.

Dry lightening in my area can have disastrous results. (don't send that)!

Blowing a 70 mph (112 kmh) gale all night with rain lashing against the windows. At 08:35 it's 6 deg C this morning.

All I needed to make it perfect was a s******s Aussie coming along to tell me he's sweltering in 42 deg.

Can't tell you much about yesterday, slept about 20 out the 30 hours following New Year celebrations(surprise). But today was beautiful, tomorrow is supposed to be perfect!
If you call 37c with 85% humidity perfect, then that is what we will have. It was very enjoyable (not) taking down 10,000 lights today, but ice cold beer doe's help.

Lovely sunny day here in Wiltshire, 5.6c.
Might take the Beast out for the first blast of the year later.
Or might go for a pub lunch.

It's been a balmy -20C (-4F) at night and -4C (25F) during the day this week. We have the first storm of 2015 headed this way. Not a big one just 10-15cm (6in) of snow for the weekend. So far a very mild winter for this area.

Winter here is 20-25c and blue sky most of the time, it is our dry season.
Although we hit 0c some nights(not very often).

In *THE REAL* Northern California (NOT the SF Bay area) yesterday the sun shone brightly and the wind was calm for the first time in 3 days. Before that the temperature was just above freezing with winds of 3omph, gusting to 45mph. Bitter didn't Even begin to cover it!

When the wind drops so does the temperature. This morning at 5:30am it was 27F. We are told to expect more of the same for the next couple days then a storm rolls in off the Pacific.

We're about ready for another soaker actually. We've already had more rain since November 1 than we had all the past year but it's all soaked into the ground, and the wind I mentioned has dried out the ground again.

But I grew up on the farm, where the weather is Never right, no matter what it is.

Happens about once every year or two.

Contrary to what most of the world thinks, not all of Arizona is a barren wasteland. A good portion of the state is at higher elevation, pine forests and right now about 12F (-10C) and under a foot of snow.

There wasnt much activity on the street, people just retreated to the coolest spot they had. Not a frequent event thankfully.

-20C is about the lowest setting on my 'deep freezer' If that's a mild winter I'd hate to see a bad one.

Beginning to see the logic of heated seats!

From bright, sunny and cold SoCal, it's been between 36* and 60* for many weeks
Almost set a record low in Pasadena for the Rose Parade, it was around 33* for them brave souls, not me though..
