We have got as low as 20 degrees so far the next 2 days will be in low 70's. I'll go riding this afternoon after it warms up. It was 34 degrees this morning, we will have have a 40 degrees temperature change from morning low to afternoon high. That's not unusual on the Texas Rolling Plains. By 5pm the temps drop fast and it gets chilly fast.

Wednesday the weather was nice, low 70's light wind. I had a nice ride then stopped by a store and got a couple of rolls of Gorilla tape. Then stopped by a couple of friends shops and visited with them a while and had a couple of beers. It was almost dark when I got home and was getting pretty chilly. I put the scooter up and the hot engine warmed up the Cantina several degrees. It was a good day.

8° - fog - totally overcast with a 90% chance of rain

No need for a Meteorologist here. Our weather forecast that runs from November until March is on a brass plaque.
Now that's funny.

It was 17 degrees this morning -8 Celsius. The coldest temperature here this winter and we did get a couple of snow shower yesterday. We didn't get out of the thirties yesterday, but they predict we will be back up to the low sixties Friday. To cool for me to be riding for a few days.

You're in TX, right?
Yeah Texas Panhandle, rolling plains. We are a little over 3,000 feet above sea level. It gets cold here. Single digit temperatures here and have got in negative temps. February the 8 1933 it got down to NEGATIVE 17 degrees. The coldest I remember it ever being is 1 degrees. We hit single digits most years.

Seems to be consistently colder than NW GA.
That was a negative seventeen degrees in 1933. Plus it's the high plains that runs all the way up to Canada. With mountain ranges on both sides. The heavy cold artic winds are channeled straight down the plains. and there is nothing but a few barbed wire fences to stop it.

By the National Weather Department we got down to 16 degrees this morning. By my weather station at the house we got down to 18 degrees. The National weather department is about 20 miles N/E of me. That's pretty cold this time of the year. It's a clear, cold morning with absolutely no wind.

17 Degrees this morning, I've ridden with it that cold before and it's not all that fun. But we have had some cold mornings here lately and there has been a couple of scooters that have gone by and the road out front has a speed limit of 75 mph. Yeah when I was younger but not now. It was like I had to prove something back in the day and I proved it. Ain't going to again. Merry Christmas!

It was in the high 60's yesterday, but very windy. Then last night we got a light snow and the roads and driveways were so warm it melted the snow. The low was 30 degrees and overpasses and such are icy. Not a good day to ride.

I did ride this week but we are going to have cold weather heading in. Lows in the teens highs in the 40's and a 80% chance of snow Sunday. Last weekend 50 miles S/E of me got 6 to 8 inches of snow and we got nothing. We could sure use the moisture.

I hate this time of year. I am a daily rider, but as the years go by I'm less inclined to ride below 50. That won't happen until Thursday. I am waiting on a longer clutch cable for the XCT. The Challenger needs nothing. All I can do is wait out the weather.
It was 20 degrees when I got up at 5am, freezing drizzle and fog. 90% chance of snow tonight and 80% chance tomorrow. With a total accumulation of 9 inches of snow over the period. At least there is no prediction of high winds. Highs in the 30's and 40's with lows in the mid teens for the next few days.

We have a few inches of snow this morning with a few more on the way. It started with light rain last night so there will be a layer of ice under the snow.

The low was 15 degrees this morning and very little snow melted yesterday. The roads are nasty and slick, I guess they have sanded intersections I haven't been out to see. I have had enough winter and feel sorry for the people that live up North and have this kind of weather for months.

It got down to 21 degrees at the house and 19 at the airport. The sun is shining but we did have a red sky to the north this morning. The high is predicted to be 50 today with a west wind. I went into the little down north of me yesterday late afternoon and the roads were clear and dry. Piles of snow in places, the yards and pastor area are still covered in snow. Predictions of rain and snow next week.

It only got down to 37 degrees F last night and the greatest portion of the snow has melted. It's 44 degrees right now and a Northern blew in a couple of hours ago and back to low 20's in the morning. No decent riding weather predicted for 7 days at least and chances of snow next week.
