Experience The Warmth

We in Charleston have reverted back to October, apparently. If you’ve stepped outside, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the return of warm, mid-70s temperatures, Charlestonian humidity and a familiar urge to dodge mosquitoes. Funk-nasty. This is happening thanks to a system pumping a very warm southerly flow into the area.

Well, this sort of thing doesn’t last too long in December, and typically, these temperature differences resolve themselves with force. A fairly potent storm system is sweeping through the middle of the country, causing plenty of problems with severe weather across Texas and into Mississippi and Alabama. So, as you might expect, we’ve got a slight risk of severe weather tomorrow, which primarily hinges on how much sunshine peeks through before the front arrives. In fact, the outer portions of the storm are showing up on radar.

So, keep an eye out during the day tomorrow — it could get a little rough at times. It’ll be through by Friday, and we’ll get back into upper 50s for highs (though the lows aren’t currently projected to be as low as they have been, which is good for my getting up on time). One thing is for certain, this late fall has been anything but normal; we just can’t seem to figure that out this time around.

    I’d like to see how the average temperature this fall compares with years past. Am I nuts or did it seem much colder than usual this year?

    Have you ever noticed how stupid and slow the winter mosquitoes are? It’s as if they are hungover – they move slow, can’t seem to figure out where they are going, and aren’t really able to bite very well.

    We’ve consistently run 5-10 degrees below normal over the last month and a half, particularly in mid-November when we were seeing mid-20s for lows. Rarely do we see that until January.

    Ken: Hadn’t seen the official word from NWS, thanks for that. :) This has been a wacky late fall so far.

    Chad: They had a little vigor today, that’s for sure. :) I haven’t noticed the winter mosquitoes likely for that exact reason — if they’re not biting me, I just ignore ’em. :)
