Old Man Winter Pays an Early Visit
Old man winter made an appearance a bit earlier than scheduled. Temperatures overnight under clearing skies fell into the low 20s in our southeast areas, even further into the teens to our northwest. Comparing that to what we typically see this time of year, that is about 15 to 20° below average. Now that is cold. Unfortunately, the below average trend continues as highs today won't make it over freezing today.
A wide and strong area of high pressure is moving closer to the Stateline following yesterday’s light snow. You may have noticed earlier this morning that we did start off with a bit of cloud cover. As the morning progressed, those clouds moved out of the region leaving us with sunny skies. Plenty of sunshine will last us into the afternoon, so if you’re able to tolerate wind chills hovering near 20° at times, get outside and enjoy it. Highs today will only climb to near 31°, which is our average high for the end of December and the beginning of February.
