Several cold fronts will move down from the Arctic later this week and next week, each one bringing temperatures down near record territory. The first cold front will pass Wednesday evening pushing highs down into the low 30s Thursday and Friday, and overnight lows down into the teens. It doesn’t look like we’ll break any records during that time, but we’ll come close.
Southerly winds heading into Saturday will bring temperatures back into the 40s, but a second cold front Sunday will pull down an even colder air mass Sunday night through next Tuesday. It’s possible highs Monday and Tuesday won’t make it out of the 20s! Forecast high temperatures for both days are 27 degrees. The record cold high for Monday is 26 degrees set back in 1986, and is 27 degrees for Tuesday set back in 1940. We will come close to record low temperatures, but those look to hold as record low temperatures are in the single digits.
