Wut sun. Cloudy all day. Mid 40s for the high. Maybe this bodes well for the coming storm. Need the baro to climb to at least 30.39 and precip to break out near TN

Ugh. Sun was out through midday up my way, clouded over a bit but cleared out when the winds picked up. Nice sunset tonight behind broken clouds. Cold out now and blustery

Temp dropped from 46 to 39 between 4:30-5 p.m. when the front came through here...along, of course, with winds picking up. Also, I could swear I saw mammatus clouds at the edge of the front as it approached the Potomac. Is it possible to have mammatus clouds in this kind of frontal setup? I've only noticed them associated with severe wx in our area.

When you said winds picked up I was also like “wut winds?”  Then temp dropped and it got gusty.

I just noticed my rain gauge says 1.25" I forgot about the snow/sleet/ice caked on there that melted in the last 2 days. I think I probably got 0.6" or so last night. It poured for a while.

Beautiful clouds looking east over the Potomac this evening. d14d0de6423e19db90a226cfd871d7ed.jpg

Cool aspiratus or undulatus or whatever they call them now.  I seem to always see them before a storm!  Nice picture!

Yes -- you picked up similar cloud formations just above the treeline in your pic. I tried to catch the mammatus-like clouds (center right) trailing the edge of the front as it was passing through two hours ago. Just felt odd to me...like I said, I usually notice these sorts of formations when we have squall lines going through in warmer weather.

19 now.  Windy and cloudy so will only get down to 13.  

This has been a cold Feb here...about -3....But we havent really seen any super cold.  It's just been persistent highs of upper 20s to mid 30s, and lows in the low 20s.  And Cloudy 80-90% of the time.  My lowest temp since I got here is 13.  And I was only in the teens one other night. And my low max  is 26.  I have a shot at single digits this weekend.  But only for a night or two.

You’ll find that it’s cloudy out here most of the time in winter. It’s weird. You often can see the edge of the cloud deck to the south and east and it will just sit there all day.

Looks like a shot at Single digits tomorrow night for nw zones.  December 17th got to 9 here with snow cover . Definitely doable.  A 1036 High centered over Md/Va :icecream:

Snow cover, cold advection, and mostly clear skies results in an incredibly pedestrian low of 25.

25 here as well, although there has been a fair amount of cloud cover.

Still not had a temp below 20 this winter. Tonight's forecast low is 18. I'll take the over.

I’m  very curious about tonight. If we can’t get in the teens tonight? Jeez...

Just seems like we can't get any cold this winter. It's been pretty frustrating especially when the deep south is buried in snow and cold. I need cold to kill cut worms in my soil. This year is going to be bad.

Bone chilling 25 degrees lol
