Alternating between 'Just Freezing' and 'Really Freezing'
This is an interesting pattern, and should hold until Christmas. We are getting dry, near freezing air from California, followed by super cold, probably alternate weeks. It could mean less snow, but no big thaw and warm weather. I didn't get in the last of my kale, and it might be never.
We would get lots of snow if the Gulf air came in and out, pushed by the Arctic air. We might not see Gulf air for the rest of the winter. Last year we had the big El Nino giving us a warm December. Not so lucky now.
