In Missoula, it's a damn heat wave. It's gone from -23 with -40 wind chill last Wednesday the 22nd to today with light rain showers and 40 making the snow all yucky and mushy.

Looks like we have the same temperature spread—just twenty degrees colder where you are.

It's currently 57°F and cloudy here in Wichita, with a forecast high of 59°F.  Last Thursday, the low was –5°F.  That's a 64-degree spread in one week.  There has been a stiff south wind both yesterday and today, around 20–25 mph.  The little snow cover that remained on Christmas lasted longer than it might have otherwise, because we got freezing rain on the evening of the 25th, which ended up somewhat protecting the snow from immediate melting under a thin crust of ice.  Most of the remainder has melted today, however, with just little spots still to be found.

Similarly, like in the last two posts, we went from -8°F to +61°F between 12/23 and 12/27 here in Joliet.  A very nice temperature differential if I do say so myself.  :) It's going to be really difficult to beat Denver in this contest, though.

The most I can remember here is when we skipped spring this past May: from a low of 33 on May 4 to a high of 93 on May 10.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.
