    Yup, they're pretty much all over the place at the moment. While we're sweltering down here, it's been minus-15 up in Wisconsin this week, where it's been snowing heavily again. Welcome to the new normal for our weather!

    PS: There was snow in Las Vegas this week for the first time in more than a decade.

    And the heat goes on (in Florida, anyway!). We've been back up to 87F/30.5C for the last few days, and it should be the same again today. We've been promised a cold front, with the possibility of a few showers, over the next 24 hours, which should drop the temps back to around 74/23, or average for February. But then we warm back up again into the low 80s. It is already starting to look like an early summer weather pattern, with the possibility for a few thunderstorms, but it's definitely going to be warmer than average for the next 10 days or so.

    The early forecast for March shows us staying above average, but not by as much as we have been recently and with our rain chances increasing.

    While we have now reached the end of February (with a LOT more warm weather than we're used to!), we haven't quite shaken off the last vestiges of winter, with a couple of pretty miserable cool, cloudy and wet days this week, and the possibility of another short cool-down next week, with temps dropping back into the 60s (and as cool as 45/7 at night for a couple of nights).

    We are finishing Feb in very warm mode, though, with the mercury hitting 81F/27C again today. We have had fully 24 days this month with above-average temps (as high as 88/31, when we'd expect to be 73-74/22-23). We are slightly under the usual rainfall for the month (2.1ins instead of 2.8) but it has not been as dry as the past few years, and we shouldn't be seeing too many fire warnings in March.

    The forecast for March sees a fair bit of variation, going as high as 87/30.5 but also in the 74-79/23-26 range for much of the time, which would be around average. We should see a few thunderstorms, too, in mid-March and again towards the end of the month. As ever, we shall see..!

    The weather is going to be a bit mixed to start with, karalma. There is actually a cold front coming through today that could bring some storms and drop the temps back into the low 60s for the first time in a few weeks (a sign that we are now into spring, with the outlook distinctly changeable). It won't be cold by UK standards (down to 16C during the day and even 6 at night) but you'll see all us Floridians bundled up for a couple of days! Anything below 65F/18C sends us hunting for long trousers and sweaters

    Things should change round pretty quickly after those 2 days, though, and we should be back up to 82/28 by the end of the week. There could be some showery weather at times, and possibly even a thunderstorm or two, in the next 2 weeks as the weather just north of us is distinctly nasty right now, either deep cold and snow or hot and stormy as the northern jetstream heads south for a while and mixes with the warm air over the Gulf of Mexico.

    This gives rise to the terrible tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia yesterday that have left a trail of destruction in their wake. It's not unknown for Florida to see tornadoes at this time of year, too, but they are more likely to be in the north. It's always wise to check the weather forecast on the local TV channels in the morning before you go out, though.

    We are definitely into spring now, though, and it has arrived earlier than usual. How do you tell? The trees and bushes are already in full bloom and the grass already needs to be cut once a week! The A/C needs to be on during the day, and only just drops below the interior setting at night. The early mornings are still cool (in the mid-60sF) but you can sit out for a while in the evening and be perfectly comfortable.

    Basically, winter was confined to a few weeks in January this year, and we can expect to be well on the way to summer by the end of the month. The one good thing about the heat at this time of year is that there is little to no humidity yet. That is the surest precursor of the hot, humid summer months, when Floridians tend to stay indoors!

    Typically, the March temps are in the 75-79 range, reaching 80 by the start of April. We typically get about 3.8ins of rain, although recent years have been on the dry side. With the very mixed state of the weather right now, that may not hold true this year, though.

    The weather today has been perfect for us. Yesterday was a little too hot, although the evening was beautiful. Thanks for the update Simon - we will keep an eye on the forecast.

    You probably don't want to see today's forecast, karalma! It's a typically British day, unfortunately Cloudy, wet, cool and pretty miserable. The rain maybe set in for a few hours at the moment, although it should clear by 3/4pm and get a bit brighter. It will be much cooler than the few days, too, with temps only getting as high as 60F (15C) and dropping to 42/5.5 at night. After that you can expect plenty of warm (if not hot) weather, and mostly sunny too
