As cold as it may be today, let’s not forget that it’s January. This looks and feels worse simply because it’s been so warm.

Looks can be deceiving…. What a beautiful afternoon in New York. However it’s arctic air that’s making for such clear skies.

Cold it may be but it remains snowless for the Big I-95 cities.

Philadelphia dipped to 12 degrees this morning. What’s very interesting is that 5 out of the last 9 winters have seen a morning colder than this morning.

Tonight will be another chilly one but not as cold as this morning as heights rise and the arctic air leaves.

That Northeast ridge eventually hooks up with the Greenland ridge as it does so, arctic air building over north-central Canada gets released south.
