Florida Freeze Watch: Jan-Feb 2021

Recommended Posts

Matthew92

Screenshots taken from around 6:30-7:15am. Escambia to Walton Counties. Arctic air was moving due East. As mentioned before, due to this being an advective event and the cold air not coming from the N/NW,  normal microclimates like Gulf Breeze got about as cold as the mainland in Pensacola. And as seen in Okaloosa and Walton counties, the arctic airmass didn't advance far East enough- otherwise similar temps as Escambia would have occurred. In fact, going East towards Bay county is where the freezing line stopped at.

I think winter is over for us on the Peninsula of Florida.

I could be wrong, we have had freezes in Central Florida in the last half of February and even in March, but I doubt it is happening this year.

Hopefully if we do get another freeze it will be light and that will be the end. The maples are already flowering. I question the identity of the maple in my yard, it didnt bloom out until almost May of last year, Lowe's or whoever did the tag for it may have mislabeled it?

Hopefully that is true, but that is what people in Texas said.  After what has happened this winter, never say never.

I'll see about getting some tomorrow. This thing hasnt started blooming yet, if it does what it did last year it will be a while before that happens.

Wow,  Jerusalem looks beautiful with a coating of snow.  I remember seeing them on the news having snow before.

Definitely not unheard of but pretty crazy.. There was another tweet regarding snowfall in Saudi Arabia as well.. Rare as that is, northwestern part of the country sees the white stuff often enough also.. Makes for great pictures no doubt.

Sounds like the title of a well-known music single. Coincidentally, the singer is Canadian...

Really wish i knew whether this is the real beginning of Spring or not. Looks like below average temps going into early March. I guess we shall see.
