February Freeze (Potentially)

January 23, 2015: Don’t look now, but the extremely chilly weather that we had a few weeks ago may be coming back. Good thing the Super Bowl is in Arizona this year, because we are looking at the single digits to teens for high temperatures locally on Super Bowl Sunday! I’ve mentioned this scenario a few times this week in the forecast, so here’s a look ahead.

We are potentially looking at the jet stream to plunge well southward, with a pipeline to the Arctic to flood the area with very chilly polar air. Leading up to next weekend, the temperatures are going to fluctuate plenty, between the upper 20’s to upper 30’s before the Arctic blast works in.

Several long-range models are pointing to this, so while the details may change 9 days from now, it is starting to look more and more likely that February 1 is going to be a bitterly cold day.
