-- What is the weather like where you are? (

Posted by Smug Git on 12-19-2004 10:23 PM:

What is the weather like where you are?

This is my entry for 'most boring thread ever', inspired by the IOD thread that started off with a cool ice hotel picture and has become a discussion on 'weather where you are'. I am very interested in weather (including the physics of it). I know you'll all be shocked that someone as interesting as I am is interested in the weather, but these things happen.

It is getting colder here, but still about 37 F. Some snow due later (we haven't had any at all this year yet) and tomorrow will be a bit colder, highs around 21 F.

To really make this thread climb the pinnacle of boring, we all need to know what we are talking about when we use different units (archaic degrees Fahrenheit or rather more sensible degrees Centigrade).

Thus, a conversion table is required:

-10 -23.4
-5 -20.6
0 -17.8
5 -15
10 -12.2
15 -19.4
20 -6.7
25 -3.8
30 -1.1
35 -1.6
40 4.4
45 7.2
50 10
55 12.7
60 15.6
65 18.3
70 21.2
75 23.9
80 26.7
85 29.4
90 32.2
95 35
100 37.8
105 40.5
110 43.3
115 46.1
120 48.9

-25 -13
-20 -4
-15 5.
-10 14
0 32
5 41
10 50
15 59
20 68
25 77
30 86
35 95
40 104
50 122

As you are doubtless all aware, to convert from degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Centigrade, just subtract 32, then multiply by 5 and divide by 9. To go from degrees Centigrade to degrees Fahrenheit, just multiply by five, divide by 9, and then add 32. Note that -40 degrees Centigrade is -40 degrees Fahrenheit according to this method. Degrees Centigrade to Kelvin just requires the addition of about 273, and from Kelvin to degrees Centigrade, just about 273 (approximately).

Windspeed and humidity information is of course welcome, but keep that windchill or 'feels like' nonsense to yourselves.

Actually I believe centigrade is not used much any more, Celsius is.

In any case it's about 7 degrees Celsius here with about 6 inches of snow and more falling as I type.

Centigrade = Celsius. Brits were slow to accept the renaming. 7 degrees Celsius is warm for it to be snowing, Rokkr.

Celcius ROOLS!!

What joy!

"fucking cold" is translated to both F and C.

It's a comfortable 56F (13C) here at the moment. Humidity is down to a scant 28% and we have a northwest wind at a brisk 21mph. At least, that's what the weather says, it's probably not that windy but it is quite breezy outside. We had a night of close to freezing weather a couple nights ago, and will have another in a couple more.

This is pretty typical weather for Louisiana this time of year, and it will be about the same until the end of February when it starts to warm back up. We will get a few nights and maybe days of freezing weather, but they will be only occasional and short lived.

Want to know why we have this weather? Well, Louisiana, and southestern Texas, are situated right where the warm humid air over the Gulf of Mexico meets the cold, dry air coming off the conitinental US. The cyclonic front generation that occurs in the midwest toward the rockies sends us a cold dry front every 5-7 days, pretty much like clockwork. We have a day to a day in a half of rain or even storms, followed by cold, which then gives way to mild temperatures and clear skies. Right now, our barometric pressure is rising, the sky is clear and we have low humidity. That means we are about in the middle of a continental airmass, and I would say.... Tuesday it'll give way to the damp warm air from the gulf if another cold dry airmass doesn't come in after it. Once we start getting back into spring, late February or early March, and the continental airmasses don't have as much energy to push their way through, we'll settle back into the hot, humid weather where we get convection storms every afternoon.

I guess typing so much in the "most boring thread ever" makes me the "most poring poster ever." Score.

Uh yeah, I forgot to insert the - sign, so -7.

It's only -15 c here tonight and some of our snow melted during the weekend and with the adding rainfall I'm sure I'll break my ass on that icy pavement tomorrow.

The coldest I've had to endure was -46c. At that time, it did feel like time stood still.
Everything else sure did.

But like the saying, there's no cold weather just bad clothes... perhaps it's not far from the truth but when you spit outside on a cold winter night and it sticks like an icicle on your chin .. well then clothes just doesn't save you anymore.

It's -12 C here right now. The average low for this day of the year is -4 C, so quite a bit colder than usual (average high is like +4.5). Coupled with a considerable amount of snow. It's been kind of funny here the last few weeks. We hadn't had any snow except maybe a brief dusting until a week ago, it hadn't even dropped down to frost more than a few times, so it's been unseasonably warm and clear here. And then about last week, the weather all of a sudden caught itself up to where it should be pretty much overnight. Early December, clear skies and light jacket weather. Then, a week ago, foom, bunch of snow, cold as hell. One decent snow last week, and then I wake up today and the whole place is covered with an inch or two, with more tomorrow. Winter caught up fast. This time last year we had probably been covered in snow and ice for a month and a half by now.

Looking at showers later in the evening.. Best get my washing off the line!

Typical Melbourne weather for last week: (all are approximate C's)

Weds: Rain and hail, 22C

Thurs: Drizzling and overcast but extremely muggy, 25C

Fri: Overdast and muggy, 32C

Sat: Clear, hot, 35C

Sun: Overcast, warm, cool southerly breezes in afternoon, some drizzle, 26C

Today: Overcast, grey, shit and going to rain, 18C currently outside but will probably get warmer and then rain


The safe word is elephant.

Posted by Smug Git on 12-20-2004 12:55 PM:

A pathetic dusting of snow here last night. A brisk 9 F (-13 C) at the moment, winds at 16mph gusting to 25 mph, according to the frequently-wrong

Donet hink Kelvin involves 'degrees'. 259.8 Kelvin will do.

Posted by Vyper on 12-20-2004 01:50 PM:

Yeah, we got the pathetic dusting of snow here as well


Some people realize that their history of suffering can be a hero's saga rather than a victim's whine, depending on how they write it.

Posted by Aydin on 12-20-2004 03:12 PM:

-11C with snow.

Posted by Weasel Spoor on 12-20-2004 03:29 PM:

6C, grey, miserable and quite a chilling wind.

We are now 'odds on' for a white christmas in London to boot.

Oh, and it was -1 and snowing in Berlin on Saturday.

Posted by Vyper on 12-20-2004 03:33 PM:

it has warmed up to 14F now, which I'm guesstimating is about -17C

It was fucking beautiful out today! Then about an hour ago it turned cold and windy. It should get colder the next two days,then warm again!

Been nice in LA. Of course, it's almost always nice in LA.
In Santa Monica (a bit coastward of where I am now, so colder) 61 F, generally highs around 68-72, lows in the mid-40s. Sunny skies.

I do sometimes miss having weather that actually changes, though.


Posted by Mordecai on 12-21-2004 12:47 AM:

It was a very nice sunny day today, in the low 50's, but windy, fairly strong gusts that cooled things down a bit.

Then, about three o'clock, the wind shifted, coming out of the north and it was COLD, by the end of the work day I had some pointy nipples.
