You may find things a little different on Monday morning if the NWS forecast pans out.....

Eek. On the news they said Sanford'll get down to 61. That's a bit north of me. For here, looks like it'll be 63 or 64....

The storm dissipated before reaching SoCal   :(    [though brief showers over highest peaks].  Cold upper air mass is overhead.  Only San Diego bay stayed above 60 last night and 50's should be widespread tonight   :P  [actually donned pj's last night].

Were still really warm with apparently no end in sight...

I wish I had a taste of winter :)

lowest of the month 77

highest of the month 91 (record breaker)

it actually looks like the fcst says we should at least get back closer  to normal by midweek next week (lows in the low 70's, highs low 80's)

perfect weather for open windows!

Look out for a late week cool down as arctic air modifies into the Northeast.  Snow in upper Midwest/Great Lakes.   :P

Cool down here as well.  The low for the next couple of nights look to be in the lowest of the season thus far.

Later in the week the highs may only reach the upper 70's.

I know.... I'm watching it like a hawk...... I have MOST of my stuff well protected now, with the exception of my Queen & P. Elegans...

Bobby,

The bigger front will arrive here by next weekend.  The local forecast right now says 79F for a high next Saturday and a low of 60F.  That's gonna feel like an arctic wave.

Youre not alone....I see that all the time too :(  

Many times the forecasts for Tarpon Springs are centered around the coast.  And, me being 1.5 miles from it, can result in an uncomfortable deviance from the forecast!

Next Saturday for here is 80.  Yes, this is going to feel like a nice respite - and just in time for the USF plant show - which we're really looking forward to, btw.

Can't wait to see what crotons will be making their appearance - going to be waiting at the gate for opening time.

And it will be so nice that it's not going to be sweltering.  Was out today doing some plantin' & weedin' - and just felt so hot.
