I lost a peach tree to an early bud one year but mostly the plants respond to changing light levels and not tempretures and so stay closed up tight even when a warm day comes along. Thats why the leaves still change colors even when the fall is very warm. They respond to light levels not so much tempretures.

Just checked both digital temps here. One for front deck 47.8 degrees. Screened in back porch 51degrees.
Very warm temps for this time of year. No snow as of yet, and that is unusual. We did have a light flurry some time back, only lasted for about an hour. It came down with one of the severe cold fronts. If this keeps up, I'll start to worry about things starting to bud before Spring....lose more plants when they get confused about what time of the year it is.
On the other hand...goats are happy in this weather....not hot and not too cold. Now that you mention it, I'm laying less straw for them than usual, for this time of year.

In your case yes this is a warm front but only in that it will be bringing moisture which is warmer than dry air. Not so much warmer temps this front could actually cause that lake effect snow you guys get.

Interesting it shows a warm front in Minneapolis but it's like 2 degrees F right now, so it is pretty chilly. Def not a warm front, unless it is going to pop up later in the day.
Look at this dense fog.
Foggy conditions were reported from the coast inland to West Sacramento early Monday. Around Stockton,drivers reported patchy fog along Interstate 5 and Highway 99.
South of Modesto, the California Highway Patrol reported dense fog during the overnight hours.

Our thoughts exactly.
I have pictures of kids playing down at the beach last Jan 2. We had snow on the 29 or 30th and then the weather turned very very warm. The kids were playing in the snow barefooted ! Without coats. Of course the snow didn t last too long either but it snowed about a foot so there was plenty for them to play in on that warm January afternoon. I havent notice any red tint to the sky. I've seen that crazy yellow sky that comes just before a storm. I feel weird in that yellow light just because it looks strange.

I haven't ever noticed any red fog or whatever here in the Appalachias. As far as it being warm this time of year, it's always done this. I remember many times having late-spring-like conditions in Nov., Dec., and even in January. I remember when I was a kid, there being 3 feet of snow, then a few days later, it would get up to 70 degrees. Now that's not to say that we did used to get a lot more snow than we do now, but I just think it's a normal cycle. Until I see it snow a foot in late July, I'm not worried about it
So basically its been normal for you?
