Colder days ahead?

The Climate Prediction Center, in their daily medium-range outlooks, is indicating a high likelihood of below normal temperatures beginning sometime this weekend and continuing through at least the first week of February. While the coldest air may be just to our east across the Great Lakes and eastern Canada, it would appear that daytime highs in the teens to around 20 degrees will be common, along with nighttime lows around zero, possibly below zero if skies remain clear at night. There are no major storm systems in the forecast, but there will be periodic small chances for light snow as the cold air moves in. The long-range outlook for February calls for above normal temperatures, but this outlook will be updated next Wednesday, and if the cold air is firmly in place at that time, the outlook could be changed to reflect the latest trends.
