Cold Jan 11, 2010

Hello and happy Monday everyone, are you staying warm? Unfortunately, the cold weather continues in the deep south, where record setting low temperatures are doing a number on the citrus/fruit/veggie crops. Florida farmers are already reporting damage and loses, but to what extent is the question at this point. It’ll be a week or two before they can really investigate and get the full story, but I think it’s safe to say that we’ll likely see a spike in products at the produce counter in the coming weeks/months.

Take a look at the record low temperatures across parts of Florida this morning. Most notable is that of Key West, where they were one degree shy of tying their all-time record low temperature. The 42 degree reading in Key West was the 2nd coldest reading the city has ever recorded. This 2010 cold snap is the longest stretch of cold weather since 1940, but for some, it is becoming the longest cold snap on record!

Mostly Quiet Weather Early This Week

The weather around the nation will – largely – stay quiet. The exceptions will be that of the West Coast and Great Lakes Region. The heaviest precipitation will occur in the Northwest with as much as an inch or two of liquid falling in parts of northern California, Portland and Washington through early Wednesday. This same storm will shoot southeastward over the coming days and mix with a little Gulf of Mexico Moisture to produce heavy rain along the Coastal Bend of Texas.

12 Hour Forecast

Heavy Rain Potential Developing Mid-Week Near Texas:

Below is the 5 Day QPF (Quantitative Precipitation Forecast) or accumulated precipitation forecast across the nation. 5 Day

The big question, now,  is will this storm hold together and become a big snow producer in the Northeast? We’ll have to wait and see how things develop. This biggest news this week will be the warmer weather expected by midweek. Enjoy and see you again real soon.
