Weather Thread; 2019


Well it was a clear and warm 46F on Sunday afternoon Dec. 30 2018.
16F and 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground by 5 PM on Monday Dec, 31 2018, New Years Eve.

Today it was a clear & sunny minus 19.9F at about 8:00 AM! Welcome 2019 to Wonderful Wyoming!

Did anyone seen the wind chill numbers from yesterday in Wyo. Was a frigid -63F wind chill in Rock River, WY!

How was your weather today? Who got to go for a New Years Day KLR ride at what temp? please note C or F temps.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting

The morning started off at 37*F with a high of 61 for the Rose Parade. It’s now 56.

Wicked cold. My flip flops are cold to step into to take the trash out. There was frost on my car.

Should be good for my apricot crop, though. Had a bumper crop of tangerines and it is looking like a 5-batch year for kumquat marmalade.

No KLR riding for me today. 20 degrees F with snow and salt on the roads in South West UT. Going down to 2 degrees F tonight. I think I will get the snowmobile out and ride that this week!

I got out for rides on Thanksgiving and Christmas, but not New Year's. High was 17F yesterday. Too cold for me. Plus, for some reason I still can't figure out, it looks like they put a rather liberal application of salt on the roads on New Year's Eve. When I first ventured out yesterday, it was so thick I thought at first it was frost.

We're supposed to have riding weather with highs in the upper 40's here in a couple of days, but since there's no rain in the forecast I'll have to wait until all the car tires pickup/disperse the salt as I don't like getting it into nooks and crannies where it can set off (cue dramatic music then Vincent Price voice saying "The Insidious Process Of Corrosion.")
