    Extra warmth + Moisture = quite a bit of rain!

    Yes, heavy rain for 2 straight days to end our long dry spell. Thankfully, it hasn't been humid to go with it, but we've still hit 80F/27C or above for 6 days in a row, which is pretty unusual for February (usual average 74/23). We could even be as high as 85/30 tomorrow; not quite a record, but close to it. The shorts will remain on for the immediate future!

    For the second time in 3 days there have been tornado warnings in central Florida. Yes, it's that warm and unsettled right now. Just all over the place.

    ETA: Melbourne on the Atlantic coast hit 88F/31C today, tying the record set back in 1939!!

    Here's another reminder that you need to be prepared for all types of weather at this time of year. After yesterday's 'heatwave' and record temps in places throughout the region, we are suddenly down at 64F/17C this morning, with little prospect of being much warmer thanks to a cold front that has brought more showery rain and a really cool wind. We've now had almost 2ins of rain in the past 5 days, the most we've had since mid-November, and another indicator of how things can change really quickly!

    Mind you, considering much of the country has been battered by the big winter storm that has brought snow, ice and travel chaos across 70% of the US, we are still sitting pretty!

    I saw pictures of that storm even record lows and snow in the South.

    Yes, it has been a once-in-a-generation bad weather event, Catlady, and is still ongoing, with hundreds of thousands still without power amidst that freeze. Really awful.

    Here's a country-wide weather map showing had bad it has been:



    And here's how the weather has hit Florida, showing the stunning range from Pensacola in the far north-west to Miami in the south-east (temps in F):



    Today is just dreary and chilly, with clouds, drizzle, and temps in the low 60sF (17C). Long trousers definitely back on!

    A 40 degree swing from the south of Florida to the north. Blimey moses.

    Pretty amazing, hey? It's pretty rare, but it's not unusual for this time of the year when we're starting to warm up significantly, but we're still getting these big winter storms to the north.

    Yesterday we were close to 80F again in the morning here in Orlando, then the latest cold front came through and we were 20 degrees colder by night-fall; and at barely 48 this morning!!

    OK, for those who are planning a holiday in 2022, it's probably worth knowing that we've just about hit the sweet spot, weather-wise, at the moment. The last cold snap has faded completely away and we're left with just about the most ideal weather, with the temp pushing 80F/27C daily, but still nice and cool and fresh in the morning. The 10-day forecast is also set fair and it's probably fair to say that Spring is now knocking (very firmly) on the door. True, we could still get another cold period (or even two), but that is increasingly unlikely these days with the way the weather patterns shift so quickly. There is no rain in the forecast, either, which means this is an idyllic time of the year.
