Looks Like Snow...Feels Like Spring

United States
December 11, 2015 11:32am CST
Mother Nature is certainly confused. Today we have a mix of sun and clouds. When the sun hides behind those gray clouds it looks like a cold winter day and the type of sky that usually looks like it will snow. But, when I went out to do a few other errands, it was pleasantly warm out with nearly 60 degrees F. Crazy weather in my little corner of the world. Looking outside it appears to be cold and a typical winter day for the middle of December. Once you step outside it's surprising to find it so warm. Guess the winter coat, hats, boots and gloves will stay put for now and I'll continue to enjoy going out without having to bundle up or deal with icy roads. Truth be told, I'd be happy if it was like this all winter and we didn't get any snow, ice or freezing cold weather.

@susan2015 I'd be doing the dance of joy if we had no snow at all this winter

@marlina I find cloudy days depressing and I hate being cooped up in the house

The cold has not arrived in Switzerland yet. It's a strange year, cold in the morning, but warm in the mid of the day.

@Marilynda1225 We have to heat even during the day, it's not warm enough and the sun goes down so early in the evening.

We are having the same crazy weather, the other night it felt like snow, You know that feeling but I know it just wasn't cold enough. They are telling us that in an el ninio year we only have a 10% chance of a white Christmas. I just hope it stays nice through the first week of January when we will be driving to Florida.

@bellestarr I'd almost put money on no snow for Christmas this year. I'd also be happy if the snow held off until Jan or Feb and I wish I was going to Florida for the winter

@BelleStarr I have an aunt & uncle who do it every year and leave freezing cold upstate NY for warm and wonderful Florida. I'm sure you'll enjoy it too

The weather was a blend of two extremes here as well. The Sun was fairly bright while I was wandering around the shopping precinct, albeit still cold and windy. There was also a horrendous black cloud lurking in the skies, ready to block the sunlight and turn on the rain. It was a good guiding star to help me to find my way home because my house was directly below the cloud, as usual.

@asylum hope that big black cloud didn't rain on your day. The sun was playing hide and seek here all day and mostly it was hiding

@Marilynda1225 It did start to rain quite heavily, but not until I was back in the house so I was not too concerned then.

It's been unusually warm here too. We had a few inches of snow not too long ago and now it's almost melted. But now they are saying we will be returning to reality next week and will actually get down into the single digits for lows. That's not unusual for us, but will seem extrememly cold after lows in the 20's and highs in the 40's.

@fawkes62 you must be in a more northern state than I am,.Our forecast shows same warm weather pattern for the next week or so. Sounds like you've already gotten a taste of winter

I believe that we are about 10 degrees F lower then you are. Its a treat, but they are forecasting that we'll have snow this second half of December, so that means it will get cold.

@juliaacv are you a snow lover? I'm just hoping the snow holds off until after Christmas (no white Christmas for me). I want my whole family to be able to travel so we can spend Christmas together without snow hindering everything

@Marilynda1225 I don't mind the snow, I prefer it to be cold, clear and dry, these mild temperatures are very unhealthy.

Our temps were around 70 yesterday and that is very strange for this time if year. I'm not looking forward to the cold when it finally does hit us.

It hit 62 degrees here today i loved it. I walked out of work at 530 tonight and it was still warm so i did not need a jacket. This weekend supposed to be almost 70. I love it i wish it could stay like this all year round but we know that won't happen.

@blondie2222 I'm certainly in favor of a mild winter. I hate having to bundle up when I go out

Yes, I keep seeing clouds that seem to promise snow, but do not hold any because it's far too warm. But I am happy with the low electric bills for heat, so I won't be complaining.

I believe Mother Nature is right on cue with the way weather as well as history, shall repeat itself: countries that usually experienced warmer climates are now experiencing the reverse while countries that were much colder, are considerably warmer !
