@Lustig Andrei,
We spent about two weeks on Oahu - primarily in the Waikiki area. The weather was between 78 to 82 during the day, and the lows probably in the mid 60's. It rained some, but for very short periods. I was drenched on my first day while walking, but it dried very quickly.

Now back in Silicon Valley, it's in the low 70's during the day, and in the mid-40's at night; feels like it's freezing after Hawaii.

Snow squall watch for
Kingston - Odessa - Frontenac Islands issued

A strong snow squall out over Lake Ontario is shifting back and forth in a stiff westerly flow. It is threatening at times to come ashore briefly tonight in the Picton and Sandbanks area, and if it does, a quick 5 cm of snow along with frequent blowing snow are possible. Latest indications continue to show that winds steering the snow squall will become southwesterly beginning Tuesday morning. Once this happens, the snow squall will start blasting the Odessa to Kingston area in the morning and may also start affecting locales from Napanee through Belleville to Cobourg by noon as well, bringing bursts of heavy snow and blowing snow with it.

Quickly changing travel conditions, including very low to at times nil visibilities in heavy snow and blowing snow along with rapidly accumulating snowfall, are the main issues that will be dealt with as the snow squalls move in.

Local snowfall rates of about 10 centimetres per 12 hours are possible with the more intense snow squalls.

Snow squalls will likely affect highways 401 and 2, as well as other roads across the regions,

resulting in sudden zero visibility in white outs and dangerous winter driving conditions.

Motorists should consider adjusting travel plans including avoiding these regions altogether.

The snow squalls may persist into Wednesday.

A bitterly cold Arctic air mass has once again invaded Southern Ontario. It will persist at least through the middle of the work week.

It's currently 47 degrees outside and a cold rain. We have the heat up and the fireplace lit so we don't freeze to death during the night Mad

Our record setting dry winter is finally broken in ABQ. We've got about half an inch of snow so far and it is still snowing.

@Butrflynet,
I see some flakes dropping into water, my usual back door pool. No accumulation. Butryflynet and I are, I'm not sure, as the crow flies, a mile away.

Just looked at the front yard. There's a lilt of snow.

@ossobuco,
we had 6 inches more of a wet snow that fell when the temps were about 32. The cold came by and quickly "Set" the snow into hard ice . Now its very dangerous on the roads and the gravel trucks are doing multi passes.

We're supposed to get a couple of inches overnight, and a couple of more tomorrow. Meh . . . snow we got, snow we've had for quite some time. As long as we don't get any more ice storms, we'll do fine.

Charlottesville will likely get a little ice overnight before temps head towards 60 Wednesday. This morning I met a convoy of a dozen utility trucks heading north. Getting into position, I guess.

@realjohnboy,
They are predicting a wet snow followed by an ice strom and were in the middle of the "pink zone' The Lncaster stations have been saying that we can expect downed wires and trees. Good thing I spent the last three years removing trees close to the house or barns.
Were set to turn on the gennie

It's warmed up here in the Tampa Bay area. A high of 77 today, I guess I can leave my coat at home.

For folks in Albuquerque, weather service just put out a storm warning for us on the west mesa. We're to get 2 inches of snow over the next 24 hours and Rio Rancho is to get 3 to 5 inches of snow.

It has already started lightly snowing here.

The plants and trees are loving it, leaf buds are popping out everywhere.

@Butrflynet,
Oh no! I'm visiting my sister today. I hope I can make it over the NW Plateau tomorrow. It's usually way worse than Albuquerque on 550

ETA: Those trees are so easily fooled into thinking it's spring. Makes it really hard to get anything out of the orchards.

@roger,
Roger, you might want to either head out now or postpone a day. They're saying most of the area here is going to get a lot of snow. The snow won't be that bad, it is all the idiots driving on the roads like there is no snow that you'll have to watch for.


Here's the map and text for the storm warning

@Butrflynet,
I'll leave right now, and turn back if I must. It's tomorrow that is a concern. Once in town, I can't decide to just stay home.

Thanks

The latest storm just blew through the City starting last night about mid-night. Very wet snow, & freezing rain made every surface slicker than deer guts on a doorknob.

I went out to make calls this morning thinking this will show them that I am tougher than they thought, but I think it ended up making them think "This guy doesn't have sense enough to stay out the weather.
