I’ll start as usual with a look back at the previous month. December was very odd. We had 3 or 4 hard frosts. There some years we don’t get a frost at all. The grass is brown and dormant and quite a few plants that were borderline hardy here were killed. New Years day was 80 and I had to turn on my AC.
January like the rest of our winter here revolves around cold fronts. A front will come though and cool the day time temperatures down to the 60’s or even high 50’s and then the temperatures will go back to the low 70’s until the next front. There is no humidity and we can go for a week or 2 with no rain.
