We've already had about as much cold weather this month of December as we did in all of last December. Our average temperature is right at 34° compared to almost 46° at the same time in 2015. And the cold keeps coming.
There's so much snow on the ground to our north that as the bitter cold continues to surge south across Canada and the northern US, the air can't warm up at all. So we should expect this bitter cold to continue for up to 2 more weeks.
COLDEST AIR YET...is still to come. Friday evening, a STRONG cold front will surge across the central Plains and temperatures will take a nose dive. In fact, afternoon temperatures will fall to the teens Saturday, and that's colder than any day we had in ALL of last winter. We are still expecting snow this weekend too. I won't discuss possible totals until tomorrow, but it still doesn't look like it will be very much.
Thanks for spending some time here on the blog.
