Here in sunny south wales UK last night was the second hard frost of the year .... down to about minus 4 oC .

 By 06.30 hrs Jack frost had certainly  clouded the car windows , roofs & solar power panels so I rolled over & snuggled back down  under my 15 tog quilt .

Weather in Gilbert, AZ

Post  LizDTM on 11/8/2017, 9:16 am

Sanderson, I'm in Gilbert, which is SE of Phoenix, but part of the greater Phoenix metro area. When I moved here, it was still semi-rural and cooler than Phoenix. No more! We are fully urban now. I do have an interesting difference between my front and back yards, so in my garden journal, I notate like this:

Tues Nov 7th Weather in Gilbert, AZ


  • Front:      High  79      Low    62
  • Back:       High  81      Low   60
  • Humidity: High  53%      Low   29 %
  • Precipitation: n/a
  • Weather Notes: Overcast all day, but no rain


Not a lot of difference yesterday with the overcast. But look at the day before, which is more typical:

Mon Nov 6th:      
Weather

  • Front:      High   78     Low    56
  • Back:       High   85     Low   53
  • Humidity: High  65%      Low   22%
  • Precipitation: none
  • Weather Notes: sunny w/ high clouds

Although it should be snowing at these temps, and with precipitation falling, the forecast is for freezing rain.  I suspect that there's a temperature inversion at work.

It's gone crazy here in South Wales UK.
I was down by our big oak three days ago getting a wash from the sky big time , today it is 14 oC the sun is shining . When I fed the fish in the pond by the big oak this morning  I noticed that the hazel nut coppicings are covered in light green new catkins about an inch long ... they weren't there three days ago .

First taste of winter-like conditions starting this evening with rain, freezing rain, snow, 70 km/hr wind gusts and -11C temperature.  Yeuk!

Today, we set another weather record here in Ottawa, Canada. This one is for the coldest November 10 on record. This morning the temperature was -11C (12F) and with the windchill it feels like -22C (-8F). We just keep setting new records ... annual snowfall, annual rainfall, most rain in a day, hottest/coldest days, etc. It seems like all historical averages are being thrown out of the window.

Low in the backyard last night was 9*F (-12.8*C)... Shocked  It didn't get this cold until a month later last year.
I got most of the things brought in that I meant to. I forgot the tansy pot and I realized as I was reading CC's post - the hoses. And one trellis is 'stuck' because there is a kale that grew through the netting and I missed it or thought "oh, that's cute" and didn't think ahead to wanting to take the trellis down.
I got a lot of things covered, but I ran out of covers/time/energy and left some plants bare... as experiments, yes.  What a Face

Absolutely gorgeous, here. This is our 2nd day without rain. It's still too wet to do anything outside, but now they're saying no rain until Monday, so maybe I can rake leaves, turn compost, and move chips tomorrow and Sunday. Fingers crossed. geek

Freezing rain and up to 4 inches of snow expected in Ottawa. Thankfully we are away so we will not be directly affected by this storm. Hopefully there will be no damage.

Crazy, crazy weather.

Snow on the ground. Freezing cold. Just got back from putting gas in one of the cars and just about froze to death while standing at the pump.

Current temperature this afternoon is -8C (that is 18F). Overnight will be -11C (12F). Now here comes the weird part. The forecast high for tomorrow is +10 C (that's 50F). How ridiculous is that? We are getting climate change in less than 24 hours!

Environment Canada really missed the mark on their +10C (50F) forecast for today. The best we could do was about +2C (36F). Winter weather is really settling in. Time to think about indoor gardening  such as various microgreens and some AeroGraden herbs.
