Mild Temperatures For a Few Days, Then Arctic Air Returns

We've had a bit of a break from the very cold arctic air that invaded the Stateline starting the second week in December. Our coldest day of the month occurred on December 19 when we bottomed-out at -13 degrees!  Starting on Tuesday, December 20, our temperatures started to moderate and a majority of the days have been above average since then.

That trend will continue until Tuesday January 3, but then the arctic air will make a rebound.  Long term models are indicating we could have a week of very cold arctic air that week.  The cold air is arriving right on time as our coldest temperatures of the year on average occur between January 6 and January 22 when our average high temperature is 29 degrees.  Get ready to break out the cold weather gear again!
