    It is a balmy 2.8 °F with "Light Snow Freezing Fog" and a windchill of -16 °F.
    A clip of the forecast for my area:

    "In addition to the snow... strong west to northwest winds of 25 to
    35 mph with gusts to near 50 mph along the Lake Shore will continue
    into Sunday night. This will create blowing and drifting snow as
    well as dangerous wind chills ranging from 10 below zero closer to
    the lake to as low as 25 below zero well inland."

    And it looks like the winds are starting to shift enough to fire up the lake effect snow. SO glad I do not need to go anywhere this afternoon.

    Hiya, I'm just outside Plymouth...

    The wind this morning was gusting over 40mph making snowblowing almost impossible,..guessin' wind chill -35F easily.

    My goggles iced over almost instantly...

    Usually winter in SoCal means I have to wear a long sleeve T-shirt in the evenings; but we've been having a real cold snap lately: 54 deg. F and sunny at 10 AM, night time lows in the 40's.

    Brrr....

    Nice 23F at the moment, forecast says it will drop to -13F in a few days.
    Thank god only -13F, I just hate when temperature drops to -40C/F or so, my cars suspension gets quite stiff below -20F.(26y old MB W123)

    Ok boys and girls, I think it's time to wake up my winter temps
    thread. It was a lot of fun last year to see what kind of
    frigid temps everyone deals with. I personally think it's
    cool(haha) and I hope you like it too.

    Here in SE Wisconsin we are down in the upper teens, about 19F tonight. It's
    the coolest night so far this winter season. How's it
    coming where you live?

    Here we had just a couple of nights with temps just barely touching the freezing point.

    The weather has been nasty tho. Lots of rain, wind and temperatures between 1C and 5C.

    Got our first "real" snow storm here on Friday... MAJOR snowfall and wind pretty much crippled the city (Calgary/Airdrie, Alberta). The storm hit pretty much all of Alberta! Snow has stopped, and we're all shoveled out, but this week will be cccccold! Right now it's -25C (-13F) outside ... and that's without the windchill!!! Supposed to warm up to a tropical -7C by Friday... hope so, as we move into our new home on Saturday!!!

    Thanks everyone for supporting this thread. Glad to see lots of replies. I hope to keep it alive all winter, so please keep on sharing your stories of bitter cold, crippling snow storms, and cold weather battery performance...hehe, it is a
    a flashlight forum after all

    For us here in SE WI were looking at some snow here in the next couple days. Tuesday night through Wednesday could bring 9-13 inches. Yikes, hello winter. I'll be updating when we see what really shows up.

    I got about an inch (optimistically) of snow last night, but nothing accumulated on the roads. It didn't even completely cover the grass in most places; there are just blades of grass with some half frozen snow around them now. Winter really is coming pretty late around here.
