Recently many riders have been caught by the change in local afternoon weather and have been seen traveling thru very cold rain and gale winds that were not present when they departed earlier in the day.

Sure do miss the ride and still keep my license current if I ever get that urge again.

Like today it is sunny without a cloud in the sky with temperatures not reaching over 40°F. that will turn into some rather nasty wintery downfall by morning.

I've lived from Alaska to San Diego and in Idaho & Eastern Washington.  Don't mind brutal hot (95° or so) or vicious cold (20° or less) but the 28-35° range with precipitation is nasty with freezing rain, sleet, wet snow, ice storms & too many surprises if the temp jumps up or down after a storm passage.  Can you say bog mudded roads or a hard crust of ice over soft snow can be a problem?

I couldn't agree more. Here is StL, it does get cold in the winter and drops to single digits or below every year. However, the majority of our winter is spent right around 20-40 degrees during the day with a stiff wind from the north. It rains/snows/ice/slush/sleet/frozen fog, etc. at least twice a week. Basically, the winters in StL suck. Not enough snow to do anything like ski, sled or plan on winter activities. It's just cold, grey, cloudy, dirty for 4 months. 

Then, it gets hot as sh*t and you can't pay for a cool breeze. Both spring and fall last about two weeks here.

Then the "upstaters" from Chicagoland arrive and act as if they have entered the Deep South and must only be a hop, skip and a jump from Nawlins.

It was 11F this morning driving to work, up to 21F now. Two weeks ago it was 62F, and I went to Cape Cod to fish for trout, since the ponds there were not iced over. The trout were uncooperative.
