Balmy today, not as warm tomorrow

Just remembered something from this morning that made me smile. The tv weatherman this morning described the forecast for today as "relatively balmy" and tomorrow's weather as "not as mild as today". He was predicting temps in the high 20's°F, possibly "as warm as" 32°F (0°C) in some places.

I just love when they start using terms like "as warm as" and "balmy" to describe temps at or below freezing. It makes me smile every time.

In case you haven't guessed yet, I'm fascinated by weather. If I hadn't had such a phobia of math as a kid (ok, until my late 20's) I would have gone into a scientific field. Fear is a potent inhibitor, however irrational that fear might be.
