    it's been unseasonably warm here in the Big Easy, shorts and t shirt weather for the last 5 days; the temp today should be in the low to mid 70's here.

    i actually got just a lil' bit of top-of-head sunburn during my post surgery knee rehab walk.

    NOT complaining, just commenting.

    We've been having 50s and 60s in VA, mixed with days of 30 degree weather. Makes for great running days so I'm not complaining.

    There is a moderate 'la nina' condition in the pacific this year. As a result, we continue to get a high pressure ridge off the west coast, which keeps the jet stream far to th north. This results in much warmer weather in the northern hemisphere. And as a result, the Sierras and the Rockies are getting minimal snowfall (which sucks for us skiers). The condition was suppose to peak in Jan/Feb, but now it sounds like it will linger into spring. So the western states will have a dry winter and the south will be warm. Washington and British Columbia should get lots of rain. Going to have to travel north to ski and board...

    Peace

    Here in MN it's been warm and NO snow, which is very odd for us. I can't remember the last time we had no snow on the ground in Jan... No complaints here though!!!!

    I was in NYC over Christmas/New Year and the weather was great: excellent walking weather. New Year's Eve day felt like early spring.

    we just got a dusting of snow after 3 weeks of temps in the 50's.... I hear it's pretty unusual for Denver at this time of the year.

    Global warming....

    Cleveland has has an unseasonably warm winter. Really only two significant snowfalls all winter, and both of those were 3 in. or so. And the 10-day forecast shows little to nothing.

    But I'll take it!!!!! Hell, it'll be March in 8 weeks and we've hardly had winter—the coldest day was a high of 21, but other than that, it's been low 30s to mid 40s.

    We've had some weather in the 60's, which is unusual, but we usually do have wide variations due to the chinook winds off the rockies... and a few 60's in January isn't that strange. We just haven't had any really cold weather yet. We had enough last year!

    We got about 12 inches of snow two weeks ago today in southwest Michigan and it all melted two days later. It has been in the low 40's to the low 50's everyday for the past 12 days. Usually the temp is about 10 degrees or less with a lot of wind and blowing snow.

    I've been in Colorado all my life, and this is the warmest winter I have ever seen. It is also the second-driest. There is hardly one foot of snow cover even on the highest peaks here.

    Actually yes. We have not had a huge snow yet. In a matter of fact, we haven't had much of a snow at all. We've had a ton of sunny days, and if it would ever snow, it would only stick in certain areas, but the ground is warm enough that the snow just melts on it. We've been pretty lucky too, from what I gather. Everyone around us has been getting accumulations here and there....but not us.

    We had 80F(26C) last week pretty warm. It's been a bit cool in the high 60's low 70's(15/21C) lately though. At night it's about mid 40(4C)

    South Florida is a little warmer than usual, but we did have a 3-day "cold snap" last week where it was near 40 F at night and barely reached 60 by day. But that's not unusual for January, and we've had much colder in the past. Today was mid-70s. Our summer was hotter and longer this year, really no Fall at all, so local residents have been looking forward to cooler weather, if not the tourists.
