Again! Where did this cold come from??

I'd like to know that as well. It was quite good, for February, yesterday and over the weekend but this morning it was freezing cold and so misty that I had to have my car's fog lamps on when I went out to do my weekly shopping trip.

Today it's bright, sunny and dry. 🙂 It's still a bit chilly in the mornings, but afternoon temps are now into double figures (C) so things look like they are improving (and about time too!).

That's sort of our situation here in North Carolina as well. It seems like every Sunday for the past month has been rainy and cold, but then the following week it warms up and the sun shines. One day, it's down near 4 or 5 degrees C, then the next it goes up to the neighborhood of 16 or 17 C, and then it goes back down again. These temps can wreak havoc on the sinuses. 🤧 The summer feels like the only time of the year where our weather is consistent.... and I can't say I'm looking too forward to it. I think @Otaking66lives keeps sending us humidity from Florida or something. 😆 Humidity or not, I'm really glad that the trees will finally have green on them again soon. Winter is so dreary.

See-sawing temperatures are very annoying. You just never know what to wear when you go out.  Anyway, it's nearly half past February and the dreary winter is almost over. 🙂

We have blizzard warnings of all things here in sunny(?) SoCal.  I’m in the foothills near the Angeles Crest  Forest and the San Bernardino mountains and it has snowed up there more recently but the last time I saw real snow at my actual house here was way back in the 80s.  It didn’t stick around long back then.  We’ll see how it goes this time.  Blizzard warnings are even being issued for parts of San Diego south of me.

Fortunately I have the option of working from home tomorrow and the weather is supposed to improve enough by Monday to raise the snow level above my location so maybe the commute to work next week won’t be total chaos.  People around here can barely handle rain.  I shudder to think what would happen in snowy/icy conditions!

Sounds like parts of our railway network,  back in 2010 most of Southern England's rail network was totally shut down due to a few inches of snow. The pic shows the totally blank departure board at London Victoria, usually one of London's busiest stations at that time of the morning.

Just a lot of rain and some wind so far today but NOAA says there's a flood watch, flash flood warning, wind advisory, and even a blizzard warning in effect until tomorrow afternoon.

I seen reports that you're getting weird weather on your side of the pond.

Over here is bright but cloudy, dry but still cold.

You could say that.  Snow in Northern California is one thing but blizzards in Los Angeles - in the middle of a drought no less - are definitely not normal.  Down here in SoCal we like to keep our snow in the mountains where we can admire it from afar and say things like, “let’s go snowboarding this weekend!”  🌨️🏔️🏂 🙆‍♂️  When it comes down into town and starts affecting the commute something is definitely wrong.  🌨️🏙️🙅‍♂️

All that said, I haven’t seen any actual snow in my immediate vicinity, at least not yet.  The freeways are flooded near downtown L.A. and the freeways are also closed at some of the nearby mountain passes with up to several feet of snow and ice but here at the house we just got a bit of hail - one of my eastern-born neighbors called it "graupel" - yesterday and a LOT of wind and rain overnight.  38F and still raining on my patio this morning, and it is supposed to get even colder this afternoon and into tonight.  Likely even thunderstorms and more hail as the next front moves through.  We’ll see.  NOAA still has a blizzard warning and a flood watch active for my neighborhood until this evening.
