Forecast: Cold Monday, More Moderate This Week
Our messy winter storm is now over, and the weather theme today is the cold. Temperatures will hover in the upper single digits to lower teens for a January 21 that is one of the coldest on record. The highest temperature of the day was back at midnight.
There will be clouds and sunshine for today, and with the wind chills, it will be below zero all day long. There's a wind chill advisory posted as well. If you need to be outside, just be sure that your skin is covered up.
Tomorrow temperatures moderate as the core of the Arctic air pulls up into Canada and readings get back up to the 20s. The region's next storm system arrives later Wednesday in the form of a mixed bag of precipitation, but the trend will be for milder air to overtake the region and therefore, it's mostly a rainstorm. As a matter of fact, temperatures could reach the upper the 40s and even move into the 50s
That will be a good time for you to remove any of the ice that has formed over the past 24 hours.
Another Cold Shot of air arrives this weekend. But once again, this won't last very long as it lifts back up into Canada. The final few days of the month also see another Arctic air mass poised to try to move into the U.S., and it will be interesting to see just how much of this makes it east. We continue with a very easy winter in comparison to what we could be having.
