Nice, looks like you've got an anemometer set up too. I bookmarked your station, it will be interesting to keep an eye on it over the next week with all the cold weather that's expected.

It looks like my area may get below 30F next week.  It's been a little while since I've seen below 30F here, so let's see if we can keep the streak in tact :)

25 degrees this morning. Just 24 hours before they had the low at 31 before changing it to 28 about 12 hours before...

Here's how my forecast is looking. Has barely trended only a little better in the last day or two: before we were supposed to have two sub 25 degree freezes. This is still a formidable cold snap though.

What I hate almost as much as the cold is the BONE DRY air that accompanies all this. My hands shrivel up with the dryness.

Yes that dry air remains me of up north. Our dew point right now is not too bad, it is 47.  Last night the dew point went down to 33, but I am sure your dew point was much lower. And this is reminding me of last year, headed into a drought again. I don't even remember the last time it rained here.

I relocated the anemometer 3' off the second floor roof peak a few years ago. The landscaping had become a wind block for good wind readings in it's former location.

Nicely done, I'm jealous. Unfortunately there's really no way I could get a good wind reading in my current home so I didn't opt to get an anemometer. I certainly hope to have one at my next home, wherever that may be. 

Nice ravenea too, I haven't seen many around here that tall. :greenthumb:

Last time Tampa froze was in 2011. Hopefully that doesn't verify.

My house in Seminole heights recorded 31.5˚ so far this winter. It looks like this Wednesday should be about the same.
