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.
