Big Warm Up Underway!

Friday, February 1:  The current record setting Arctic blast will rapidly lose its grip today and Saturday across the Midwest, Ohio Valley, and Northeast where highs will rapidly rebound into the 40s and 50s by Sunday, with very comfortable 60s and 70s across the southern US, locally 80s for Texas and Florida. This will ease national demand to much lighter than normal levels and should last through Wed-Thu even though it will be quite cold across the Mountain West and Plains. Colder air will return across much of the northern and eastern US after, but with details in need of refining.   Colder air is expected to spread across the northern ad eastern US during the second half of next week into the following weekend for a return to strong national demand. Toda’s mid-day data could be important to see the latest temperature trends head of another dangerous weekend to hold.

Cold releasing late next week with a glancing shot of frigid air across the northern US.

Pattern Feb 11-14 favors at least modest cold shots into the northern and eastern US, but the data has been a bit inconsistent and needs watching.
