Tem­per­a­tures to mod­er­ate a bit as snow ex­its

Through Satur­day, tem­per­a­tures had been at or below freez­ing for four straight days, mak­ing this our long­est pe­riod of freez­ing weather in what has been an ab­nor­mally mild win­ter. The in­flux of chilly air has also brought our first sub­nor­mal tem­per­a­tures since early De­cem­ber.

De­spite the ar­rival of more sea­son­able Jan­uary weather, no sig­nif­i­cant pat­tern shift is un­der­way. In­stead, milder-than-av­er­age con­di­tions are fore­cast to re­sume as the sys­tem that brought snow to much of the Mid­west moves to­ward the East Coast. Emer­gent sun­shine could prompt a re­turn of thaw­ing tem­per­a­tures as early as Sun­day af­ter­noon. In­creas­ing south­west winds Mon­day and Tues­day are to de­liver a stronger push of milder air. Read­ings are fore­cast to ap­proach 40 de­grees be­fore mod­er­ately colder air ar­rives mid­week.
