Winter has arrived in the South

United States
January 18, 2016 7:24am CST
OK, when it dips below freezing for a day or two I don't mind, but falling all the way to 18 degrees wasn't part of the deal! It will be that low, or lower, tonight. We don't take chances, we leave a faucet dripping in the house and in the workshop. The last thing anyone needs is frozen pipes. But I am sorta of chuckling because watching the national weather it looks like the northeast (our old stomping grounds) has a good shot at a big snow storm later in the week. As of today's report they think the most snow will be right over I-95 from Washington, DC up to Philly to New York. I know weather reports change, but they are due, over-due, for snow. It is late January after all. It is cold here but the sun is out and I don't have to go anyplace! What's your weather like?

How I wish to have a colder weather in my country, but even it's not summer yet, we are struggling the tropical season.

We are having thunderstorms here so I hope it stays cool tomorrow as we'll be outside all day. The last thing we want is temperatures around 35C.

@AbbyGreenhill an inch isn't too bad but anything that requires shoveling is too much for me

@Marilynda1225 We usually just sweep it off with a broom.

@AbbyGreenhill We could get a wintry mix tomorrow night. I don't think it is suppose to be too severe.

It hasn't been real cold here in southern Oklahoma yet either. Today will be in the lower 40s, but little wind. Tomorrow is supposed to be back up in the 50s, but windy. We got some snow on Saturday, but it was gone by Sunday. It got down to 25 last night, we haven't seen the teens yet. I am ready for spring!

If the cold weather does not come, then it will not come. I am not surprised at the warm winter. This is the effect of El Nino. Think back to 1997-1998 when the effect of El Nino was extreme. The winter of 1998 was much worse than today.
