Default February Weather 2012

After record highs Tuesday, today will also be unseasonably warm ... mid to upper 60's.

This looks to hold most of the week, all you have to do is toss in a few scattered showers ... and you have it.

Instead of showery we ended up with bright sunshine and 62°

Rain all day yesterday and into the night last night. Didn't have any heat on in the house though, even with the Rooster's arthritis The Rooster thinks because it rained on the 1st day of the month that we will have 15 days of rain in Feb. My yard is turning into a grassy kind of quicksand now. I guess it's the waterlogged mole/vole runs.

The weather here just isnt right for this time of the year. Yesterday rain in the am and cleared up to a beautiful 58. Where is the snow and cold weather? I sure hope we get some cold to kill off bugs and such so my garden does well.

Same here!

These great temperatures have me itching to be outside all day (and wishing everything weren't such a wet mess so we could start in the garden) - but I know we need a real winter first.

Sunny and highs in the 50s today. A good day for getting my mom (83 and struggling) out and about.

Well, we did finally get a good sub-zero cold snap in January over a week, but the rest of the winter has been ridiculously mild.

It's supposed to be partly sunny today but so far (it's almost 4 PM) it's been cloudy and foggy all day. They're predicting continued warm-ish weahter (40's. Way warmer than normal here in Feb.) for the whole 10 day forecast.

We are back to more seasonal temp! Lower 30's and mid 40's for the day time temps. We had to build a small fire last night to break the chill.

I was starting to worry that my peach trees were going to bloom out. All the other fruit trees are looking good.

I just looked at my peach trees today and noticed the buds are just starting to swell. It's a wee bit early for that. If we get a severe cold snap after they open, there will be no peaches for us again this year.

From late January into early February..... temps in the 70's during the day and the high 50's at night, here in northern Florida. Should be twenties-thirties at night and fifties during the day.
My azaleas and red bud tree are in full bloom! I am fearing a late-Feb/earlyMarch frost knocking them back, like happened last year.
