    Getting excited. 25 sounds a lot better than 9, and 46 is downright balmy. Not much wind either.

    That looks wonderful and quite warm. Here's what is supposed to be at home, but it's usually colder than they forecast:

    I'm still hoping to talk the family into Freeze Fest, but they seem to be set on Vegas. That will be nice too.

    Hanksville is typically 10-20 degrees colder than North Wash, in winter at least.

    While in can be 10-20 degrees colder, in Hanks (The thing sits in a hole), than in North Wash, it generally splits the difference between Hanksville and Hite, leaning toward Hite temperatures, just a bit

    Alas, the 10-20 really applies to the low, not so much to the high...

    As Tom was saying, here is a comparison between Hanksville and Santhrax from NOAA. Highs are almost the same...Only showing about a 6 degree difference for the lows, but I am sure the accuracy of this forecast is not the same as actual measurements.

    Just seeing that forecast made me a little grateful I will be in Cedar City this winter instead of Craig. Winters were just brutal!
