Sometimes the forecasts say "maybe" 25 at night and it is TEN DEGREES! Now have a bunch of frozen plants. And Ben if u remember, let me know what it looks like for that morning. I will keep ckg your weather, of course.

Awww, yes I do miss the good ole days of TV, good times, mostly...
Julie, it's a little tough right now to pinpoint timing and details that far out. We may have a low pressure system roll through early to mid next week, which doesn't look real exciting at this time, then possibly a better front pushing through the following weekend. So as it stands right now, the 23rd would be in between anything that may or may not come to fruition. But as Van mentioned, looking past 7 days out is pretty unreliable, sometimes looking 3 days out can be!

Thank you all. I also have a ton on weather apps on my phone. Usually don't care much and only care about the 23rd, 24th and 25th. Was surprised it showed snow and my 82 year old husband won't drive in ice or snow. I, like most of you, only believe Benny. Therefore, Ben what does it look like for the morning of the 23rd. PS Bernermom I even have a grumpy cat weather for .

I've been watching Benny for about 25 years since he was on channel 6 as a teenager. he is definitely the best in BB. Thats why I mentioned his site below when the question was about long range though and Benny only goes out 7 days.
