Our high temps were actually below average on Monday, and at times the wind made it feel pretty brutal. Actually, that’s what early January should feel like.
By Tuesday our highs are back above average (24 degrees is average). By Thursday and Friday we could warm into the 40s with towns west of the Twin Cities creeping toward 50.
Say goodbye to any snow we have on the ground, and I don’t see any storms that will replenish our ground cover. Postpone your plans of sledding or skating. Our bizarre winter of 2011-2012 continues.
