@jcboy,
We've been told to expect a similar jump in temps from now til the weekend - not as high of course - but still wacky changes.

Global warming, we thank you.

NOT !!!!

Since I moved to Florida we’ve always had wacky changes in weather this time of the year, you have to bundle up for the cold and a day later your wearing shorts again.

Two kids burned trying boiling-water experiment in freezing weather
Posted on Thu, Jan. 09, 2014

Two children are recovering from burns after a cold weather experiment at home went wrong.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the children threw a pot of boiling water into the freezing air on Tuesday as an experiment to see if it turned into ice or snow before hitting the ground. St. Louis Children’s Hospital spokeswoman Abby Wuellner said the kids suffered facial burns.

Both were discharged after treatment.

The experiment apparently went viral after a TV meteorologist from Wisconsin did it, prompting copycats. Public health officials are cautioning people against trying the experiment themselves.

Squall Line, Cold Front over the Gulf is moving on shore. Thinking the sea fog & cool shelf waters will keep the winds from getting too strong, but it has plenty of lightning in it and it's heading our way!

@jcboy,
I have successfully dragged myself away from my Game of Thrones marathon. I'm heading to the gym now on this cold morning. Winter is here.

Eh? Why, Canada is home to some of the finest blended "antifreezes" in the world.

It is very cold and windy in Albuquerque, tonight at 11pm it is 21 degrees with a wind chill of 5 degrees. The air is so dry, it feels like you're in a cloud of dry ice. How do I know this? Had to take the trash cans to the curb and my hands froze in place as they gripped the handles while I tried not to get blown over in the wind.

Damn it is coooold!!!! Brrrrrr! I rarely get cold and usually run around without a coat. Not tonight!!

@Butrflynet,
That's surprising. We're usually about 5 degrees warmer up here, but we're at 24 and no wind. Maybe I should be getting ready for something.

@roger,
it's 46 deg f here now and will drop to 43 deg f before sunrise. ...then it's forecast to reach 58-60 deg for a high again. On sunday this'll all pass and we'll be back to 66-70 F and 50-55 F at night - sliding through our brief winter.
So far we've not had a lasting or killing frost, if there was any (none in Sarasota). Typically, it tends to hit 25-60 miles miles north of Tampa Bay and a bit inland. There was a brief frost but nothing that killed any landscape or crops just YET.

This is what passes for "severe weather conditions" hereabouts these days. I will say,though, that winds night before last were damn' close to gale force. A Japanese tourist playing golf on Oahu (Honolulu County) was killed when struck by a falling branch. Here onthe Big Island of Hawaii, several housing tracts lost electrical power and were still in the dark this a.m. due to downed power lines.

You think it's all fun and games living out here?
