GA weather🌪to 🌬🌫

Jan 27, 2017 5:36 PM

It's colder here than in Seattle WA! It's 48 degrees at 6 pm, and going down to freezing... pattern for the next 5-7 days no higher than mid 50's. It's really rare for middle Georgians to wear heavy costs. Most of the time we are in light jackets, windbreakers, sweaters, or just long sleeve shirts. The wind was so snappy cold today I was in a heavy coat, gloves and scarf wrapped over my ears and head then around my neck! 🌬🌫

We broke the State record of 1972 for 15 tornadoes 🌪 in the whole month of January. On January 21-22 2017 we had 25 at the latest count, and they have not finished the official survey count so it's not completed. But 18 of the 25 tornadoes were in a 4-6 county radius (150 miles appx) from Houston county (central Georgia counties). That is unheard of for here! It's not uncommon for the rain to split as it enters our area and go north and south of us. They stated the tornado that hit Albany GA stayed on the ground for 70 miles, and was 1 and 1/4 miles wide for a short period. That's also very unusual for GA. Storms typically peter out at the AL-GA line.

We've had such a rough drought for our state that we were catching up to CA. After last weekend's storms 🌪🌧 only the NW corner of GA is still in a severe drought; the rest of the state is either back in the green (ok) or only mild drought. I know many here have prayed for relief from all the various crazy weather extremes all over, me included. Today I remember my grandmother saying once, "be careful what you pay for." *sigh* 🤔

Same weather here in Alabama. We experienced every season in a one weeks time.

I'm in Northern Utah, it is 11pm and 7 degrees. The high today was 18 degrees, the titanium plates in my cervical and lumbar spine make me ache so badly😫 When I awaken tomorrow morning I will be in so much pain I will cry😫 Welcome to January, February, March, April, May.....counting the days until I have my 5th lumbar fusion and 6th neck surgery *sigh*

Yeah, this weather season is rough all over.

@ SioxzQ, I feel bad for you! I have titanium in my neck, abdomen & I do the same thing. I don't think I'd survive one winter up north of GA. Maybe when I was younger...lol

The final count was announced on today's news. On January 21-22, 2017 there was a total of 40 tornadoes statewide. Of those, 21 occurred in central GA. Whoa!

That's insane. That alone proves climate change is real

Yes I agree. My hubby is a history buff, and he said the weather changes in cycles to extremes. He said that's partially what caused the dust bowl (lack of rain), the ice age, etc. Guess he could be right to some degree but I'm not going to research it...I hate history. Lol.
