A Little Snow, A lot of Cold!

Temperatures have struggled to reach freezing today. A few, very light flurries have fallen from the sky. The photo (above) was taken with my cell phone camera.  It shows the light snow in my CoCoRaHS manual rain gauge around 12:15 p.m.  None of it is sticking on the ground.

VERY COLD SUNDAY
Our high occurred at midnight (32.2°) and temperatures since then have hovered between our high and 29.2° which occurred at 3:32 a.m. See My Weather Station Live History

SNOW THIS WEEK
Some snow events are possible this week.  Monday night looks somewhat promising and Wednesday night looks good also.  We'll continue to monitor the upcoming weather and keep you informed.

PREPARE FOR BITTER COLD
Do what is necessary to prepare your home and your outdoor animals for the impending cold snap later this week.  With lows in the single digits possible and daytime highs in the 20's, animals will need extra food and shelter to stay warm.  You'll need to make sure no garden hoses are attached to outdoor faucets.  Also, exposed pipes will freeze in temperatures this low.
