It has been pretty damn mild since the previous freeze subsided. That has been the story of this winter, two pretty bad freezes with several very mild interludes. Last winter it was just mildish throughout. My last frost was 10 days ago now. Nowhere in the British Isles has been below freezing over the past few days. The lowest over the past 24 hours was 3.4C / 39F in northern Scotland. Kew Gardens in southwest London the warmest spot with 14C / 57F today. The feel of spring will be in the air very soon. These are 1am temps… I was just about to comment on how mild it has been in NYC this winter and how they should try CIDP inside the main UHI areas on Manhattan, only to just see it is currently below -10C / 14F in central regions at 9pm with a low of -14C / 6F expected tonight. Wow. The Trachycarpus Fortunei may take a big hit on Long Beach. That is significantly colder than anything I have ever experienced here. I thought the central UHI would hold up better than it has in NYC. It doesn’t seem that pronounced at all there. I wonder what it will go down to tonight? -15C / 5F? Palm killer temps in Long Beach. Let’s see how those Fortunei hold up. There’s another 10 hours of radiational cooling to go as well with clear skies. Crikey. It got to 2F last night where I live! The winter in NYC is the same as it is in London! Mild with 2 big freezes! Edited February 4 by EJ NJ 1 An Autistic 17 year old who has an obsession with Palms!
