It looks like we get to enjoy another break from winter as we head into the month of February. Several models indicate a nice warm up by the beginning of next week, which will last into the first couple of days in February. The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) shows well above average temperatures for the extended forecast, not just for the Midwest, but also for the entire country. Even the 8-14 day extended forecast from the CPC shows above average temperatures from the west coast to the Midwest. However, the GFS, which is a long-range forecast computer model, shows signs of colder air starting to push back in by the first full week of February.
