I've always been fascinated how far south winter advances eastward across the U.S. The southernmost part of California has nearly the same latitude as the Georgia-S.C. border, but with the Pacific Ocean right there we do not experience the continental effect.

Sorry about your bananas ... is it too soon to hang them in the garage?

Dan, how cold is it expected to get? I've still got bananas hanging on plants even though we've been below freezing several times this year. The plants don't look pretty but I leave them on as long as I still see green.

The Dwarf Namwah bunch is 75% filled in but the DB and RP are still a long way off. Watered a few hours ago and irrigation is reset for 3 AM repeat. We will see tomorrow.

Harvey --- They are saying 36F for 2 hrs starting at 4AM for Wed. Because I am inland it varies from the forcasts.

Checked my instruments at 6:30 AM and got 51F with 64% RH.

The wheather people said 42F. That's the variation I mentioned. Varies widely going from E to W.

Nick, those winds suck. But a low of only 47 isn't too bad. Glass half full or half empty?

unusually warm here.. hit 50F today.. early january?? 50F ??
and no snow/rain expected for over a week..
i guess a "weak" la nina is in affect..but reading on alot of
threads/blogs/sites ... if the warming/cooling is futher east..or closer
to us..thus more west..it can affect the air..and the weather patterns
im truely a newbie on all of this..so im trying to absorb it..and make
sense of it..
what i do know..so far this is truely a freak winter here in utah!!
thoughts out there?
hope to see ya all that have followed all this more post ideas..even
your forcasts....
thanks..
i actually had to water where my ostrich ferns are..dont want them to
dry out.. probably will mulch them this week too.. usually depend on snow
cover for that..

Yes, the great basin and southern CA get "upside down" in these la nina winters.

It only hit 44 last night and the wind eased up some. I think I'm going to see a lot of sandblasting and windburn on my vegetables.

A low of 68 would be great, but I think there is something wrong with that weather station. My cheapo one says 48 was the low last night, which is more in line with the nearest NOAA stations. Right now it is about 75 though. Too bad the humidity is only 14%!
