  • FEELS LIKE SPRING FOR MANY...BUT NOT FOR ALASKA!

    Hi everyone!

    Our last day of January, and boy has it been a tame winter so far for most of the country.  Look at these departures from average today!

    This is not the case, however for our friends in Alaska who have been dealing with below average temperatures for much of the winter and record snow.  

    We have quiet weather for the Florida primaries today:

    And some good news for much of the South as we look at the drought…many states are seeing much improved conditions this winter with several storms bringing relief over extraordinarily dry land:

    Are you guys enjoying this crazy winter so far?  February can be a brutal month for storms though, so I guess be careful what you wish for!

    Have a great day, everyone!

    JD

WOW! I cannot in my wildest imagination wrap my head around -55 degrees! I don't know how you folks in Alaska do it, but I'll give you this...you're tougher than I. When I say I like cold weather, I'm talking about lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s. That is cold weather in Mississippi. I did think I was going to have to build an ark earlier today, but that front has passed. Now it's partly cloudy and near 70. Hard to believe it's February 1! Y'all have a great day! Gwen :)

Good morning to everyone. I hope that Larry and Janice and all those in Alaska can get some relief from the extreme cold. Be careful up there! It is 60 here with a high predicted in the 70's this afternoon. Just 9 more months until the end of political ads on tv. Can't wait! Take care all, JB

Larry and Janice from Alaska: I promise I will no longer complain when the temperatures drop to the teens or 20's around here! Please be careful in those frightfully cold temperatures! Margie

We have been -30 to -55 nearly 1 1/2 months now in Chuathbaluk, Alaska. I keep hoping for warm weather but no luck. If someone tells you that -55 is no colder that -20 don't believe it. This kind of cold will freeze your nose shut and frost your lungs in a matter of minutes. I dream of the 70 degree weather Arizona has.

Larry at Oliktok Point, Alaska

It is currently -40 F, or at least that is as low as my thermometer reads....but it's a DRY cold!

It's 64 here in Cumberland with another day in the 60's in the forecast for tomorrow. I love this weather but we're getting spoiled! Margie

Hi Janice and all bloggers. Got a glimpse at you JD doing the weather on Fox this a.m. Such a nice job, and you always look so lovely. This is crazy weather. We have 50 plus today and expect above temps for the next week to 10 days. Can't beat it! Our part of the country is bracing for the Super Bowl with the Giants and Pats. Go Giants and Eli. Audrey
