Do you guys have temperature extremes like this (see details) where you live?

Asked by Dutchess_III (43068points) February 21st, 2011

On Thursday the 10th we set a record low of -17f. One week later, on Thursday the 17th we set a record high of 76f! That’s a difference of 95 degrees in one week! It’s been in the high 60’s and mid-to-low 70’s since then…until last night. It went below freezing, and it’s chilly right now, about 36f. Yesterday was a shorts and t-shirt day, today is a bundle up day…..

Same here. Went from 73 degrees a week ago Sunday to snow and 25 degrees mid-week.

I’m in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Ca. About one hour from Lake Tahoe.

I think California is in the running for extremes, Palm Springs at 80 something degrees compared to Truckee Ca. which is one of the coldest places on earth in the winter.

Not quite as extreme here, but We had a couple days almost up to sixty last week, and now back to almost 0 at night.

Yes, it has been like that here too. Perhaps not quite as extreme, but drops of 50 degrees.

no, never that extreme, although we did have a day when we had lots of snow faaling whilst there was proper warm sunlight shining at the same time. it was really weird.

Only all the time. But I always say..“If you don’t like the weather in Ga. where I live .. wait a minute!
