Record warmth coming in a week or two?

With a cold snap in the offing for early next week, it’s time to find the light at the end of the tunnel…and it’s not too hard to find!

Our ensemble models are starting to indicate a significant warm pattern to take shape by the end of next week and continue straight through January 12th! The image to the left shows the deviation from normal for Monday January 7th. The darkest orange shade represents temperatures 25-30 degrees above average! If there was no snow on the ground and we had a healthy dose of sunshine we could have middle 50s here in Northern Illinois a little over a week from now!

Usually we don’t see our spring thaw in late February/March. Could 2008 bring it in January? Stay tuned. -ERIC

    By the way Eric- I love that happy holidays comercial where you ask santa what he wants for christmas, it’s really cute.

    I hope not. I wont be looking forward to that kind of weather to early march. Even if we get those kind of temps, something tells me that we would see the other shoe drop and have below zero temps.

    Eric, do u think we will have mid 50s or does mid 40s sound more realistic with snow on the ground.

    40s will be a good bet should that big ridge build in.
