Judging from the histogram below …
Our first cold front should have already come and passed.
Instead, we’re in the midst of our longest wait for cold air since 1986.
By cold air I mean our first “official” cold front. Yes it’s been a little cooler than the oppressive summer 90°/70° F daily norm, but we’ve failed yet to meet the technical criteria required to meet the formal definition of our first cold front. That won’t happen until a polar-pushed slug of continental air descends deep enough down the peninsula to drop air temperatures in Naples Florida at or below 60° F for two consecutive nights.
No thermometers needed when (… if) it does:
You’ll know it when you feel it as they say.
Is it too much to ask for some frontal rain, too?
