This morning temperatures around my area ranged from 7 to 16 degrees. That's 20 to 25 degrees below normal!
Here's a sampling of temperatures at 6am around the Midwest.
These numbers are even more impressive when you consider that the low in Barrow, Alaska (the northernmost city in the United States)....north of the Arctic Circle, held at 22 degrees. That's right, we were all far colder than what is typically one of the most frigid places in North America.
Additionally, here in Cedar Rapids we are now enjoying our 5th coldest start to November. Only 1991, 1951, 1910, and 1911 were colder at this point.
On the good news side of things, we have a decent warm-up coming for Saturday but don't blink, it won't be around for more than 24 hours. The next Arctic front is still on track for early next week. As it arrives there is the chance of snow Sunday night but models are still quibbling about the amounts and location. The latest models show this.
Still some work to do with regards to resolving snowfall issues. More to come on that and the next shot of cold air in later posts. Roll weather...TS
