Cold Stretch Starts 011812January 18th, 2012 at 9:27 am by Pete Petoniak under News, Weather
We’re not used to this! So far it has been a mild winter with January’s average temperature running about 9° above normal. No wonder the sub-zero temperatures we woke up to this morning felt even colder. The morning low in Green Bay was -2° which is the first sub-zero of this season. Usually we see our first sub-zero temperature on December 20th. This cold snap will continue for the next few days. A quick-moving storm system moves to the north of the state tonight and will bring snow showers and then leave even colder air in its wake. Expect a high only near 6° tomorrow and strong west winds of 15 to 25 mph which keeps the wind chills below zero all day. After a morning low on Friday of -5° we’ll see accumlating snow on Friday afternoon and evening with 1 to 3 inches possible for us. Find the long underwear and have a great day!
