Best find those long john's you got for Christmas, and never needed. So you can go slip them over your favorite out of zone palm.

Looking at the NWS for Seminole... sure it looks cold, but highs in the upper 50's and lows around 40 is not as bad as what we had during the last cold spell. Is there another, more ominous forecast I should be paying attention to? Do I even want to know? :blink:

Calling for mid 20s here in So. Louisiana. Usually North Florida gets a little colder than us, and central is highly variable, as you know. I was surprised to see that forecast. Substantially colder than the same forecast from yesterday.

Better news. The models have slipped up a bit, now calling for 28 first night, 27 second night. Still cold, but better than before.

When you look at the models, the air up north isn't the brutal cold they had last week. The CPC is (so far) not buying the lower numbers in the GFS runs.

I recovered my hardest to cover stuff. That seems to keep the cold away. Like washing your car to make it rain.

Forecast went warmer again, but is now longer showing 3 consecutive days with lows of 30, 28, and 29. Not bone chilling, but more than too cold for me.

It is Jesus' birthday today, w/ your blastfamous comments i see you're gonna end up in a VERY warm place!

Keith,

It is amazing that Orlando is forecasted 28f for tuesday morning and that is the same temps for much further north!

Very odd winter, just like the last. What is the forecast for Miami on Tuesday morning?

Have you had any damage to any of your palms so far this winter?

I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas!!

Well, it looks like Florida finally gets a respite. After Tuesday, no lows under 60F for at least the next 10 days on the SE coast, at least according to Accuweather. Maybe the AO has shifted, lets hope so.

Once I started following gardening weather, I was quite surprised to find out how cold north and central Florida get, as compared to here.

Well, models have changed again, but this time, not for the good. Now showing low of 30 in the morning, 26 and then 30 for the next 2 days. Ouch.

We're predicted for 29 on Tuesday morning (colder than Orlando, predicted at 32). The orchids and potted palms are returning to the dining room. I hope this is the last mess of winter for palms in the yard.

I standardized on using Rubbermaid "Roughneck" plastic containers for all sorts of carrying purposes--bromeliad pups for sale at the botanical garden, beach stuff, orchids, whatever. They've been disappearing from the retail world, mostly displaced by Sterilite. I was pleased to find some Roughnecks, shallow ones, at Kmart this week.

Mod Edit: I deleted Alexander's latest comments. They were both off topic, and contained religious content.

Please continue discussing the weather, but leave Jesus and Christmas out of it.

It look s similar to the last front just as cold if not colder for the east coast of Florida. But still worth watching out for on the west coast:blink:

Palms not just a tree also a state of mind

It is currently 47F out, with winds gusting to 30mph as they have for several hours. There have been quick showers, too, among the spotty sunshine. NASTY. I cannot even get out to prepare due to wind and rains, and how does one cover with 30mph gusts? I may have to hope the winds keep me up above freezing tonight as they often do living so near the water, but a quick diedown of the wind would spell disaster! My poor covered hoop house has been taking a beating the past few weeks. Keeping plastic on, and not allowing holes or air, has been demoralizing. Now they are predicting COLD for Wed AM. Originally upper 30's now lower 30's. I really hope this all ends soon. I am on winter break until Jan 7th, and was hoping to get lots of yard work done. NOPE. I'll just watch everything melt in the cold instead. I guess its time for azaleas and camellias! This is really ridiculous two years in a row. :blink:

It looks like a two day event here in Houston. I had 29.7F last night, my coldest of the year so far, and tonight's low is supposed to be 30F. Yesterday was cloudy and breezy and only got up to about 48F. Today is sunny with a high in the low 50s. Monday is sunny and 60F/46F.

Farmers Almanac predicted this as a below average winter for the southeast, I think. Got one for Christmas. NWS and NOAA can go pound salt.

While I don't know how this 3-day cold event will eventually play out, I do know that this latest Arctic blast is far more windy than anything we've had thus far this month. If the winds don't die down quite a bit and lows fall near or below freezing, I expect to see signifigant cold, dry wind dissication of foliage. It's been since January of 2003 since I last saw wind dessication. Since then every cold event in my environs has been radiational in nature.

Predicted 30 last night stayed just above freezing due to lingering cloud cover, but tonight's predictions are down to 25, and 30 still predicted for tomorrow night.

A friend in Pensacola said it snowed there this morning.

I woke up this morning to sleet in Jacksonville. We also just hit two records. The coldest December in record, and the coldest year on record. I think we just lost out 9a status.
