Despite record or near record flooding in the north of the State of Victoria, we are expecting another major dump of rain later next week.  The weather gods are not kind.

Freezing temperatures and the first day of snow.

Flooding in Scotland. Parts got 160mm in a day! We had some of the most persistent and heavy rain  i've seen in ages.

Lots and lots of snow. That is not shoveling itself.

billy rubin

a dusting. just enough to turn the mud white on top.

dropping and picking up 4000 pound dumpster boxes is an issue on soft ground. several times in the last month ive come back and said

nope. wouldnt do it. ground was too soft.

much better to chicken out than have a $500 recovery

Here in central Florida there is not much snow.  Actually no snow at all. My ambient temps are in the 58 F to 71 F range. (39 to 47 C)
 
For this semi tropical dude, it is too cold for comfort when out doors..

The conversion is not correct: the range 58 to 71°F is 14.5 to 22°C.

We've got weather warnings right now. People are suggested to stay at home because all roads and pavements are extremely slippery due to sleet and black ice. Schools are closed. Temperatures are around -6 degrees Celsius (21 Fahrenheit).

Yeah, we've got a yellow danger thing going for icy conditions. Plus zero-ish during the day, minus ten-ish during the night (all temps in Celsius)

People be crashing their cars and buses bloody everywhere. Strangely enough, not so many tales of big rigs blocking roads just yet. Maybe the border guys finally succeeded in stopping summer-shod trucks from the continent from continuing on without proper chains and rubbies.

It's been on or below freezing for the last 10 days. No snow. Today it's forecast to reach +15C!

Plus how much, now?! The Asmo really ought to steal other people's heat and apply it to Himself, is what He ought! >:(

The air was coming from the North at subzero. As the jet stream vortex has moved the air is now coming from the South at +15C.

Meteorology. It is a cooler science than people give it credit for.
