Ante, I'm don't have historical weather data for my precise location. Wunderground has data for Fairfield which is about 25 miles to the west of me where they show the average low for yesterday as being 39F but that they had a record low of 26F. I don't think that we got that cold but I was sleeping at the time we would have hit the low (went to bed after watching the lunar eclipse). I can't find what the averages are for particular months but would guess it's in the upper 30s for late December through January and our lows are usually around 28F which we might hit a few times a year. Last year was a cold year and we had about 20 days of frost and it looks like we will beat that as we've had 7 consecutive days now plus 2 days on 11/8 and 11/9. The lowest low I can remember in the past 30 years was in January 2007 at 20.4F. With lows down to 26F last year all of my bananas in the ground still came back (about 12 varieties, I'd guess). I now have about 20 varieties in the ground and expect some of them to die (I still need to get around to digging up my Ae Ae which I'll chop and split up and re-pot). In January 2007 I had 4 banana plants of 3 varieties (all mislabeled, so I don't know what they were for sure). One of them died completely while the other 3 died to the ground but sprouted up new pups in the spring. Last year with my low of 26F pretty much all grew back from the pseudostem which was in place from the prior fall but sometimes I need to chop a bit off as they new growth gets stuck in the dried up top.

Strange weather here, we have been getting rain, but I don't think it is associated with a cold front. 2" of rain since Friday, but apparently the people on the Treasure Coast got flooded out yesterday. Highs in the upper 70s, lows in the low to mid-60s. Seems to be more of a caribbean pattern.

Got down to 24F in my yard last night. It was cold compared to what I have been used to this fall! My tender tropical plants got zapped for the first time this year. My Musa basjoo which was days away from opening a new leaf also got frost damaged so the new leaf is brown.
Something that I thought was interesting is that my Passiflora has no damage at all. Its still completely green and its in a very cold spot in my yard. I didn't know that they stayed evergreen even in freezing weather.

No more hard freezes for the next 10 days. Although one night will go back down to 29F again.
Its slowly getting very winter like, but I still have potted palms and other plants outside that are doing well and since its already mid December, I cant complain! We are just a week away from the official start of winter!

In central Florida, about 25 miles inland of the Gulf, temps are decent, 80 high 50 low. Some rain but most of it drops on the east coast. No frost here yet and we are watching the weather full time since we have almost 60 plants outside. Most are in pots and easy to move but the others will get covered. Sometimes it looks like halloween with so many plants covered with sheets. Stay warm.

Brutal! So your banana plants no longer have any living leaves right?

Some rain here, not bad though.

We seem to be pretty consistently 9 degrees warmer this winter too. Strange! I'm worried about frosts next month though.

Still lots of green leaves, more than I'd expect, actually. Some of the more sensitive types look worse than others. I'll take a photo in a bit. So far, I think we've had about an inch of rain since September. We should have at least a couple inches more by now.

That's weird, are they the regular light green like healthy tissue or have they turned dark green?
