Interesting looking map. I'll update tomorrow when more of the snow from today will be seen in the Northeast :
Updated for today 1/5/18 :
This prolonged cold is worrying me . This was supposed to be a milder day but it is going to stay below 32F . I don't know how much Palmettos ( maybe even Trachys ) and other palms can take of this kind of cold even though the lows haven't been that extreme . It's just the constant temperatures that don't reach above 32F and the exceptionally cold nights in the low teens to low 20'sF , as well as one night at 8F . At least I missed the snow being that I'm west of the snow line .
Good luck to all .
