It’s a HARD FREEZE WARNING on the second day of Astronomical Winter. The Winter Solstice arrives at 7:28 this morning as the Sun will appear directly over the Tropic of Capricorn. Meanwhile a cold front is barreling our way scheduled to arrive this afternoon. Breezy conditions today as the front approacheth and subsequently moves through. The colder air behind the front will give us the coldest night of the season so far with a HARD FREEZE WARNING from midnight until 9am. Be warned. It’s gonna freeze. Hard. Please, for the love of all that is right and good, let the teenagers sleep inside tonight. My plants will be watching TV with me the next couple of nights as lows will likely be in the mid to upper 20 by tomorrow morning. Mid 50s today and tomorrow with another chilly night (mmm chili) tomorrow night down near freezing. Warming up this weekend though. Mid 60s Saturday and low 70s Sunday. Mid 70s for Christmas Day after starting the festivities in the low 40s. Mid 70s Tuesday too. Low 70s Wednesday. Enjoy!
