Well, come on down to these parts. It's been above 90, and even after a front comes through, it'll still be in the 60s and 70s. :D

60's and 70's sound wonderful!

Cold front moving in.....it will be in the low 80's next week. Might actually get as cold as 77. Yes, they do call it a "cold front". :lol: :lol:

And that's a pet peeve of mine. No forecaster should call anything that doesn't lower the temperature beyond 60 in this region a "cold" front. :-?

Just after 1pm. My sister in NS has sent me an iPad message consisting of only two words: "Peggy's Cove!" The little perisher is directing me to look at the webcam, because ... yep, you guessed!

Since Thursday, we have been getting rain, sleet, and snow here in my part of Indiana. This was on my Facebook feed a few days ago (could also apply to Indiana):

It would be a good day to cozy up to a fire. Alas, my wood burning fireplace just draws all the warm air out of the house. I have to stand in front of it to get any warmth. Not really too cozy.

It's supposed to get warmer the end of next week. Hope its true.

I was absolutely astounded this morning when I drew back the curtains and saw ... snow! Not much of it, and it was very wet, as it had also been raining ... but snow! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! :D

Immediately went out and made a snowball, albeit a rather soggy one. (And, yes, I did put some clothes on first; my neighbours are already concerned about my sanity, so my playing naked in the snow would undoubtedly have made them send for the van.)

Snow on April 16th - this is a first!

Congratulations, Lynne! Very happy for you! :biggrin:

Due to the thinning of the ozone layer our temperatures here, just inland of the coast, will vary this week from 7 to 27 Celsius, or 45 to 81 Fahrenheit. So it's shorts and t-shirts in the day, and warm coat and scarf for a late evening out. :eyeroll:

There was a frost warning until 8:00am this morning. Apparently, they had snow in parts of Michigan this morning. No snow here, but chilly. Yesterday it was in the 40'sF/4C here, and today its supposed to be in the 50'sF/10C.

If we are having April weather now in May, does that mean we will have beautiful May-like weather in June? We can always hope...

It's supposed to be 70 F (21 C) here on Friday, and 40 F (4 C) here on Saturday with morning snow showers. Here comes winter! :smile: :snowman:

At least you have some variety! :biggrin:
Here it's been steady rain for days, even weeks, relieved by occasional showers. :eyeroll:
