Top-5 Coldest Temperatures Today: When Will We Warm?
A number of cities had forecasted highs for today in the top 5 of all time.
Here are just a few:
1. Minneapolis (rivaling 3rd place, which is -17)
2. Chicago (rivaling 3rd place, which is -8)
3. St. Louis (rivaling 3rd place, which is -3)
We’ll tabulate the numbers this evening and I’m sure today will go down as one of the coldest days in the continental United States in recorded history.
I am! But when will things start to warm up?
Let’s look ahead.
We start with Wednesday. The upper Midwest still looks cold – but the rest of the nation is starting to thaw out.
Here are Wednesday’s highs:
Still close to zero or below zero for highs over the Dakotas and Minnesota.
Let’s keep hunting.
Thursday looks a bit warmer:
Finally above zero for highs! Those purple shades indicate teens ABOVE zero for highs, and look toward places like Atlanta & New Orleans: 50s or 60s!
Last, but not least – I present to you, Friday’s temperatures.
Those are 20s and 30s for the upper Midwest. 60s along the Gulf Coast. Even a few 70s sprinkled in. Anybody have some frequent flyer miles they’d be willing to share?
Stay warm & make sure to send any pictures or videos to us at WeatherNation, or to me directly at @ashafferWNTV on Twitter.
