Tuesday, January 7, 2013
It was another frigid morning for many in the eastern two-thirds of the country where temperatures dipped to record low values in some areas. Thanks to our Mobile/Pensacola affiliate WPMI-TV for this picture, which was taken in Turnerville, AL early Tuesday… Now that’s a site you don’t see too often this far south!
Would you believe that it was colder this morning in Pensacola, FL than it was in Billings, MT. The coldest of the cold is still situated across the Great Lakes, where earlier today, temperatures dipped into the -10s and -20s. With the wind chills, some areas had -20s to -40s wind chill values! BTW, it was even cold enough in Atlanta, GA for schools to be cancelled!
Notable Cold Temps
Thanks to a number of different weather service office across the nation for posting their local low temperature records/notable low temperature numbers from Tuesday. How about that one from Key West, FL where the low temp of 55F was the coldest reading there since February 18th, 2013 when the mercury dipped to 53F.
Another Cold Night
The National Weather Service continues FREEZE WARNING headlines for the Gulf Coast region as temperatures are expected to dip into the 10s and 20s once again through AM Wednesday.
Here are the forecast lows through AM Wednesday across the Gulf Coast region…
Tracking A Warmup!
Take a look at the 850mb temps over the next few days and note how different it looks from the depths of the Arctic plunge on AM Tuesday to a much warmer PM Friday.
High Temperatures Friday
Ahh, now this is more like it!
Here are the highs from normal on Friday! Note that instead of the eastern two-thirds nation being nearly 20F to 30F below average, we’ll be nearly 5F to 10F ABOVE average!
