How is your weather?


#2623

This will be 3 years in a row over here. Hermine 2 years ago. Irma last year. Michael this year. Only good thing is all the old trees and dead wood are gone from the last two years…


#2624

Weather pattern is just garbage. Today was at least mild, but rain more or less all day…clouds///thick clouds all weekend. I would say out of the last 10-14 days…we’ve had one with actually sunshine for more then a few hours. Reminds me so much of December (very cloudy month here normally). It does look like Weds should be the end of the rain (finally)… Cold late week/next weekend. Definitely some frost (freeze?) risk in the extended late week.

Interesting watching the tropicals/subtropicals i have in containers. The Gardenia continue to bloom as do the jasmine…but the Plumeria do not like these chilly/cloud temps. The green tea and orange that i have both look fine…the green tea has some blooms on it. I also have a Heliconia (no flowers yet ///ever?) that needs to come in…not loooking too happy out there… I try to keep all this stuff outside for as long as possible because inside the mites will start partying in the dry warm house air.

Same here, the leaves have a bit of yellow and will probably drop in a month or so.

Here’s our 10-day outlook:


#2626

Weds the rain is moving on to here


#2627

low 40Fs for high temps both Thursday and Friday here…but sunshine…weekend FINALLY looks like a dry one.

Extended looks very Octoberish…not nearly as wet…mild…i don’t see any shot at any hard freezes in the future…maybe some light frost.

Newest NAEFS for mid/late October…showing below norm for much of the middle of country===flee to FLorida if you like hot and humid—


#2628

Low pressure sucks.


#2629

That low is bringing fall back to us


#2630

Next 4 nights should all be in the 30Fs up here.


#2631

Ah ha ha! Good pun, Richard.


#2632

Cold front has moved through here…AC has been flipped on.

Really leaning towards a solid freeze Monday morning. Probably will finish up a really soggy growing season for me.

Need to figure out what to do with my tropical pond lilly. Rapberries need to be cut. I’ll have to harvest whatever mint i can (spearmint).


#2633

The word “snow” has been seen


#2634

Currently approaching Minneapolis and Thunder Bay.

Capture


#2635

It’s snowing west of me about 40 minutes. Should be here relatively soon

Edit…yup, it’s snowing. Oh joy


#2636

Was cool now very balmy again. Time for a flu shot!


#2637

About an inch of snow on the grass/in the woods. If the ground wasn’t as warm and wet as it was, I’d guess we’d have 3-5". A bit early for this crap


#2638

Yum! Love snow…I hope its one of those years that we get 3 inches every other day for months on end :wink:

41F breezy with some flurries maybe here… freeze warning up for everywhere in the area.


#2639

A week from now should be back into the mid/upper 60Fs with sunshine.

Just looking…the 850mb temps for Monday don’t look quite as cold on this run…maybe upper 20Fs to around 30F locally…might escape (the few flowering plants i have left) another week if we can squeeze thru.


#2640

Saw first snowflakes of the winter here east of Minneapolis/St. Paul today.


#2641

A balmy 23 degrees here now.

edit…21 now. sheesh


#2642

“”“Only”"" dropped to 34F. Sitting at a blistering 39F with a hole of blue every now and again…and even a ray or 2 of sunshine. NOt much of that lately. Winter is about a month early.

STill on tap for a warm up late next week…maybe eek out a 70F depending on clouds/winds and all that fun.

Looking at the GFS…i really think a hard freeze isn’t coming for at least 2 weeks in this part…maybe longer. GFS is mild ish in the long range… Maybe my flowers have some time yet.
