Cool Week Ahead!

Well the weather forecasters at the NOAA weather prediction center are forecasting a warm, or maybe very warm January for southeast Texas. I hope they are right, unlike December, where temperatures felt much colder than average. Houston had many days were the high temperature didn't even get to 50 degrees this December. Although, surprisingly the low temperature hasn't gotten below freezing yet, up through December 10, the lowest temperature that my Kestral recorded was 33 degrees. I still haven't had a chance to check the lowest temperatures for the rest of December, past December 10th, but my brother said that he saw a inch layer of ice on my cars windshield a couple of days ago, so I guess the temperature must have gotten to, or below freezing.
I am tired of this cold weather and am looking forward to a at least cool week. I am hoping that we are going to have a warm January, but I hope that once it gets warm, it stays warm becuase I don't like it when the temperature goes from warm to cold, warm to cold, like it usually does in Houston during the winter. I'd rather it stay cool and then become cold, so that way I am not that surprised by it.
Anyway looking forward to a cool week and hoping for a warm January and rest of next year, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Enjoying a Sunny Day!

After a few days of temperatures in the high 30's and low 40's and barely any sun, I got to enjoy a sunny yet still cold day today in Houston. The low temperature this morning in Houston was near, or at the freezing point this morning and I think the highest temperature that the areas in and around Houston got to were in the high 40's, or maybe low 50's. I am not enjoying this cold weather, but I did enjoy the sun.
The weather forecasters at NOAA are forecasting another cold front to pass through tomorrow and then another one late Friday, or Saturday morning, or afternoon. It doesn't look like there is much relief in sight.
The highest high that I could see was 68 degrees next Thursday on the 19th of December. I hope they don't need to change that. I think it is supposed to be partly cloudy, or sunny next Thursday also. I hope we'll get to see some temperatures in the 70's soon, but it's looking like we are going to have to wait until the end of winter before that happens. I hope not!
