A very cold morning!

It’s December 5th and this morning at 4:01 AM the temperature plunged to 21.2°F. It’s still Autumn! I’m beginning to wonder if this winter is going to be a cold one?

This isn’t the coldest temperature recorded by my Weather Station this year, but it’s pretty frigid. What was the coldest? 19.9°F was recorded the morning of January  28, 2009 between 7:33 and 7:41 AM. Today is the second coldest day of 2009 (so far) here in Benbrook.

Just for history sake, here’s today’s forecast:

Today: Sunny, with a high near 49. Windy, with a south wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to between 20 and 25 mph. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 37. South southeast wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Well that’s it for the first blog entry of the new Benbrook-Weather.com. More to come as weather happens :)
