CRAZY weather this week

Iowa forecast for this week

Sunday: Ice/freezing rain.
Monday: Dense fog, followed by severe thunderstorms (!).
Tuesday: Record high temperatures of 59 degrees.
Wednesday: Winter storm warning with snow accumulating TO 2 - 4 inches.
Thursday: Bitter cold with temperature plummeting to -5 Thursday night.

This is a real forecast.

In a span of 5 days we have ice, fog, thunderstorms, record highs, record lows and a major snow storm.

Would love to be able to sit on the couch for a few days, get a good book, and do NOTHING!

Same here. We had freezing rain/sleet yesterday. Tomorrow we will have highs around 65 degrees with some areas hitting 70 degrees. Than I think it drops back down on Friday with a chance of flurries.

Yep and it's heading our way.

Tues - Hi of 62, with a low of 53. Drizzle and Showers
Wed - Hi of 40, with a low of 40. AM T-storms, PM Snow
Thurs - Hi of 23, with a low of 11. Flurries
Fri - Hi of 17, with a low of 10. Partly Cloudy.

Right now is 57 and one of the girls at work broke out her capris and flip flops to wear in today. Fool. There is still a chill in the air, seeing as there is no sunshine. The other girl and I down stairs, are taking turns with our heaters on to keep the chill off.

Hi Deb!

The weather is just crazy, isn't it!

What will spring be like, I wonder.

Last night, we had a thunderstorm with severe lightning and heavy rain.

Yesterday, my nbr and I scraped half an inch of ice off our drive from Sundays freezing rainstorm!

There seems to be few days of average weather anymore, just too much or too little of something.
