Short-lived Warm-up

January 14, 2016: Today felt like a different season compared to the very chilly weather we had earlier this week. Here’s yesterday’s big temperature swing:

Going from -1° in the morning to 22° by the afternoon still felt cold, but much more comfortable than the harsh cold the day before. Today’s temperature jump felt even better after a morning below zero yesterday:

Unfortunately for those who love the milder weather, it is going away just as fast as it arrived.  First, we’ll get some rain tomorrow as the colder weather starts to sweep in.

The colder conditions will eventually turn the rain over to snow, but accumulations will be light during Friday afternoon.

After that, the very cold conditions settle in by Sunday, similar to last Sunday. This time around, we’ll see highs stay in the single digits Sunday and next week, as well as another night or two below zero.

Starting Sunday, January 17

As we saw earlier this week, when the weather is this cold, wind chills can be hazardous, so don’t be outside for long, wear plenty of warm layers, and keep the kids and pets warm!
