This is messed up. +8C at the coldest part of winter. So at least 20 above seasonal.

Same temps here. Sunny yesterday & today with winds around 15-20mph. Looks like rain starts Monday night & turning to snow by Thursday.

Super hot here too, it was like 2C yesterday. 5C now. I hate weather like this tbh, it just makes the snow heavier and everything messier. My street is almost down to the pavement now, which means pot holes.

I really need to figure out how to get rid of the snow on my solar panels, all that weight can't be good. Snow gets much heavier when it warms up.

This summer I think I will tilt them up and implement some heat pads in hope it helps.

Unbelievably mild winter too here in Minnesota. Very little snow (relatively speaking) as well. In the 40F range this weekend and sunny.

I scream for no more rain. I need at least a month of not a drop to dry out. Then it can come back in sensible amounts.

I know how you feel, this weekend was almost 3 straight days of no rain and I had forgotten what the sun felt like. Now it's back to rain again today. Seems like 2020 has been about 70% or more rainy days around here.

Something like 24 out of the last 26 months have been above normal rainfall. Some months were more than double normal.

Fairly close to six feet of rain (70 or so inches) in 2019. And this ain't no blasted rain forest.

Edit, just went back and looked ... officially 21 inches above normal for '19.

Yep, 60F here today. I opened the garage door and did some woodworking. I was supposed to start working from home, but screw that; I checked my e-mail during lunch.

I've officially given up on getting snow this year. It was 55°, started sunny, ended overcast with rain coming. It was too hot when the sun was out. Worst winter ever. Farmers almanac is predicting a cool spring. That would be inline with the last few years, but I'm not sure I believe in the almanac. I bought it on impulse for light reading. I used to get it a lot when I was a kid.

It's been snowing all day here. It's still snowing and so far we are looking at 4 inches with how much more I don't know.

We are supposed to get snowsqualls all day Thursday as the cold front wraps around this storm system with winds over Lake Huron.

:(

Rained today, now it's snowing. Supposed to get close to 1 foot by the time the storm ends on Saturday. I'm more concerned by the winds they're calling for... 30-40mph tonight thru Thursday night.
At least it's getting cold for this instead of snowing & only being just below freezing.

48 degree's and raining here ... supposed to get "cold" tonight/tomorrow but we're only talking 30's so not really.

Saw a crap-ton of bugs outside today too ... winter pretty much still MIA in 2020.
