What are you, the weatherman now???
Nice map! We could use a little context here.
Um, I think it's the United States. But don't quote me.
(feeling a bit silly tonite - ignore me, please.)
A beach is MMGW? That map looks cold.
Global warming...looks like someone forgot to tell the planet about it
"MMGW"? Paint me ignorant...
Man made global warming
I see what you did there, lol. IIRC you deleted an expletive though.
The forecast for Miami is for a high of 63 and breezy on Monday. Oh yeah, you posted a surface wind chill temps map.
We're freezin' our butts off up here in northern NYS.
Here's something more for the folks to consider as they contemplate the accuracy AlGore's MMGW claims:
Feeling cold? We're at 30 below normal
By DANNY VALENTINE
These days it feels like Mother Nature is a disc jockey playing cheesy music at a wedding dance with the record stuck on "Limbo," as in: "How low can you go?"
Answer: Near-record low.
Thermometers across Iowa dipped into the negative double digits. And this intense cold probably isn't going anywhere until next weekend.
Temperatures stayed below zero for much of Saturday. Des Moines was at minus-1 by 3 p.m.
A wind chill advisory was set to expire at noon today for much of eastern Iowa, including Marengo, Iowa City, Tipton, Clinton, Muscatine, Bettendorf, Davenport, Sigourney, Washington, Wapello, Fairfield, Mount Pleasant and Burlington.

The area will see temperatures below zero with a wind chill 20 to 30 below zero. Frostbite can occur in less than 30 minutes in such conditions.
Des Moines bottomed out at 17 below zero, two degrees above the record low on Jan. 2 in the capital. The National Weather Service station in Johnston recorded 22 degrees below zero.
Spencer and Sheldon recorded the coldest temperatures in the state with minus-33 degrees. Estherville came in at 28 below zero, Fort Dodge at negative 26. Sioux City and Orange City both reported minus-22 degrees. At least 16 more cities across the state reported lows in the negative double digits.
"We're a solid 30 degrees below normal," said Jeff Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
Des Moines is expected to have highs in the single digits above zero through Monday, while temperatures are expected to hover between zero and 10 degrees elsewhere in Iowa.
Despite bitter cold temperatures, this week should be relatively snow-free. A dusting is forecast for Wednesday or Thursday, but accumulations should be minimal compared to the heavy pileups last month, Johnson said.
