Wind Chill Advisory issued as relentless cold continues; thaw is in the forecast

MORE SUB-ZERO NIGHTS

We’re headed below zero again tonight but WIND CHILL will reach -10-degrees to -20-degrees thru early Friday. A new Wind Chill Advisory has been issued from 9 p.m. to 11 a.m. Friday.

The cold has been relentless! I had two pipes burst due to the cold yesterday! This New Year is already running 25-degrees per day below normal! Who’s ready for a thaw???

To date we’ve had five nights below zero – the most since 1990 (28 years) and here is a stunner. 2018 is the coldest to date in 90 years, the average temperature of 2.7-degrees ranks third all-time behind 1928 and 1887’s 1.0-degree average. I can’t wait to see the heating bill next month. Ouch.

RELIEF IS COMING

A thaw is coming. We are eyeing weekend temperatures breaking the freezing mark, then nearing 50-degrees later next week. I’m posting below the upper air pattern for next Thursday. It looks promising. Stay warm!
