Appetizer (but not the real thing?)

This year's first cold front arrived early ...

Or did it?

The above chart shows high and low air temperatures for Naples, FLA. The blue and red color coded bars show actual and forecasted temperatures. The gray color coding in the background shows the long-term average and record daily readings.  You can see where temperatures recently dipped in response to the early front.  But was it official?

By official bookkeeping standards we are still waiting.

Meteorologic rules mandate that night time air temperatures must drop below 60° F to count as an official cold front.


But don't get me wrong: I'll take the unofficial ones, too!
