Cold January?

The first couple days of 2011 were much milder than most of December as temperatures reached the 60s in most of our area. Wilmington even hit 70 on New Years Day.

For most of this week, temperatures will return closer to normal for the first week of January, but even colder weather could be on the way by next week. Most long range indications show colder weather moving in for the upcoming weekend with colder than normal weather sticking around for much of next week. The 6 to 10 day temperature outlook shows colder than normal weather for much of the US --

The long range outlook for January now also calls for a colder than normal January for the Carolinas...

Will January be just as cold or colder than our very cold December? Only time will tell, but it does appear this winter will not be warmer than normal as previously forecast in the fall.
