Arctic Blast

Springfield Thermometer
for your own personal weather station
Central Florida residents
who long for a touch of winter
are about to get their wish.
Temperature plummeting.
Freeze warnings.
Wind chill advisory.

A pretty cold shot of air.
The high Tuesday--50 degrees.
…Or less!

By Wednesday afternoon,
things will start warming up.

For a couple of years, I lived in upstate New York, near the Bershires area of Massachusetts.In the winter, it was sometimes -5º  Now that I live in Central Florida, I think I’m freezing if the temperature dips to 50º

01/03/2014 Update: This year, it has been a record breaking heat wave with highs in the 90’s in Orlando Florida. . But they will be heading back down to a more seasonal 70’s.  The clock shown above is your own personal weather station for about $10.
