The first official freeze?

The Santa Claus winds must have been moving at least a little. I only got down to 38 with no frost. biggrin.gif

Looks like the freeze event was a 'no show' due to warmer air advection from off the Pacific and more wind than what was predicted. But Oceanside, Temucula, Murrieta, Corona, etc did drop to freezing. My relative in Tierrasanta\ San Diego reported some light frost below the mesas in the Admiral Baker golf course but only 47F\8.3C at his location.

This morning's low of 32F is my coldest since 2007. It's a dry 32 though with no frost but I'm sure my exposed bananas and heliconia are going to look a little sad soon. I doubt anything else will be fazed though. Nightime temps here are forecast to moderate to the 40's and even the 50's over the next several nights.

Woke up at 5-5:30 and it was 41F. Either the weather forecast is always way off or I'm just in a good spot! It's crazy that a zip code away can be a 11 degree difference...

I don't measure my temperatures here, but I walked around the garden today and everything looks good. Then again, everything has been in the ground for quite sometime and I have a fair amount of canopy, so presumably that helps.

My backyard looks sad but my front yard looks ok. I just started putting palms out back in August so I think that's my biggest problem.

I think I'm going to invest in some larger king palms come spring. I didn't want more than 3 of the same palm but if I don't build up some canopy I'll be hurting next year too.

My night time lows have been at or around freezing for the past 3 weeks. This will be the 3rd morning around 27F. We have been under this dome of high pressure with no cloud cover. Days have been nice with temps in the low to mid 60's.

What a difference a year makes. Last year Tampa Bay was freezing all month. This year, Xmas eve tied a record at Tampa Int'l at 83F with a foggy start of 67F. This was the fifth straight day of 80F or higher and today is looking similar. When California goes down, Florida seems to go up. Now if only Coconuts would grow here! Greg :D

It's hit freezing just about every day for a week so far. Chambyronia is the only palm to be affected. Thank God for bromeliads!

Last night’s temp variance was pretty amazing. Valley Center and Escondido sitting at 60F this morning while Oceanside airport was at 29F. Shoot, just the difference from my front yard to back (20 level ft.) was almost 10 degrees! I little canopy goes a long way :blink:
