Default Most drastic weather change

Had a wild weather event yesterday and was curious what others may have had that was drastic during a ride.

It's been between 15 and 35 most of the week. Didn't ride tues due to possible ice but wed/thur didn't get above 28. So yesterday was leaving work as the tail end of the cold front moves out, it's 46 degrees (my temp probe is at the fork and pretty accurate) I'm doing about 70 thinking wow, it's nice in the 40s but it was cloudy and damp. All of a sudden I notice my windscreen was collecting moisture and within the next 30 seconds I felt this warm air coming into my full face almost like I was near a heater blowing air. I look at my console and watched the temp climb to 61 degrees and on up to 64 before leveling off. Then I noticed the clouds almost had a line above that looked like you were crossing a state line or something. Weirdest temp Chang I ever felt.

What's yours?

Crispy late November ride , 2012 on my ZX-10R . About 35 degrees out . Ran right into a massive snow squall on the MA NH border. I couldn't see 10' in front of me , snow stuck to the ground instantly . Pulled into a Dunkin Donuts to wait it out . All tolled an hour later it was over . 3" down , and the wife coming to get me with the truck . Talk about stranded !

August 1991. Coming back from Sturgis we hit a hail storm. Not terribly huge but too big to ride through; even with helmets on. It's normally 110-115 degrees at that time of year there. Strange weather has been going on since the planet cooled and solidified. At times worse than others.

Day ride Palm Springs CA.
Temp went from 75 degrees F in the canyon to 25 degrees F, up in the mountains and I found myself riding in a snowstorm, a new experience for an Australian like me. The Mile High cafe at Idylwild has a good stove and good coffee, saved my freezing ass. By late afternoon I was having a swim in the (unheated) hotel pool back at Palm Springs.

What is this weather change you're talking about?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

My wife and I were on our way home from a 2 week trip from Oregon to Michigan to Yellowstone and then back to western Oregon. We crossed from Idaho to Oregon on US 20, then headed a little north and then west on (more scenic) highway 26. While on 26 for maybe an hour we started watching a very large black cloud ahead of us. We went under it and a bit past it. I opened my big mouth and said to my wife "Looks like we are getting past it".
It wasn't another minute and that cloud started throwing small bits of hail at us. As the hail kept falling, we were coming close to a forested area. Before we were on wide open rolling hills with nothing around. The hail was coming down a bit harder but not ripping yet.
A little side road was coming up and a large timbered area. We turned onto the little road and the gravel road went in about 100 yards and turned left. At the corner, off the road (with no ditch) was a 15 or 20 foot Douglas Fir (christmas tree) that had the bottom 6' of branches missing.
I stopped on the road; had my wife quickly get off and head down under the tree. I motor-crossed the big Road King down off the road and down under the tree too. I had a small 10'x 8' tarp that I quickly whipped out as the hail storm went into full force. My wife held a couple corners of the tarp, while I stretched out the other 2 and tied it over us and the bike. As I was finishing tying the tarp, the hail stones grew to 3/8" to 1/2". The ground all around us became white with hail stones. By the end of the hail storm, the hail was 2 or 3" deep. There would have been no way we could have ridden through that storm (on marbles).

Since then; I keep my mouth shut when traveling in whether threaten areas.
