@bykfixer, to be honest this is first time I've heard the talking weather heads use the word graa•pl

Water mixed with snow flakes while on the way down.. Heck we use to call this stuff a slushy mess

How do you pronounce that KG?

When I lived in middle North Carolina <snip>the sunsets, my oh my they could be spectacular. Purples, golden's, red's, orange's and colors I'd not seen before not seen since. I remarked to a local in a class in Winston Salem one time about how beautiful the sunsets are. His reply "that's one advantage of being in the top 20 most polluted cities in America, all of those airborn chemicals sure make for some beautiful sunsets.
Here in the NE, we also get some dramatic sunrises, and sunsets. The first time that I heard that pollution led to the dramatic sunsets was in a Star Trek novel. James Kirk commented on a particularly beautiful sunset over the California coast because of the pollution.

I have heard socal beach sunsets are much better nowadays. Attributed to businesses that left CA due to high taxes, regulations, cost of living.. Many have moved to nearby Nevada to pollute that state.
LA smog, in areas, would make eyes watering, and smell and taste the pollutants.
Welcome to California!

After driving through the night, so my eyes were tired, when I entered Los Angeles, my eyes stung due to the pollution. That was back in 1976. I hope that they made progress since then.

The guy on the radio says "due to global warming it's going to be 84 today". It reached 79.

Next day

"Due to climate change it's going to snow tonight". It did not snow.

Naw bro, due to typical weather south of the Mason/Dixon line in late February it's warm one day and cold the next. It's called Spring. The red man had a saying before pale face arrived, "if you don't like the weather here stay a while because it'll be different tomorrow".

Interesting explanation why USA can get some disastrous weather, more than other countries:

A bit bizarre, temp. here is forecast to go up to +28C this week and in the 20+C range on other days...have never seen this before. It would normally be a bit above freezing during the day, possibly a bit below at night, this early in spring.

Last week we had an ice storm causing a lot of tree damage and power outages, reminds of the one in 1998.

Been in the range of low 70º's (F) to low 80º's (F), in my area. Grass is growing strongly, along with all the flowering plants. Still likely to have a frosty morning or two, for the next few weeks, but it's looking pretty good so far.

Cycling and hiking weather. :clap:
