Are you starting to feel that this is an historically cold January?SAME THING IS TRUE IN THE MID-WEST: Wausau Daily Herald:
Well, you're right, and now the National Weather Service has the numbers to prove it. So far, with five days to go, this has been the 18th coldest January in the last 139 years.
For the record, the average daily January temperature, through Sunday, was 18.7 degrees.
And there’s nothing in this week’s forecast to change that finger-numbing pattern in the next few days. The National Weather Service is calling for overnight lows in the teens and daytime highs in the 20s through the rest of the week.
And here’s more good news: Forecasters are now predicting that the region could see an additional 6 inches of snow overnight tonight. It’s all making for a memorably miserable month.
“We don’t see a big January thaw coming,” meteorologist Tom Niziol said. “Based on the forecast for the rest of the week, this almost guarantees that we’ll be in the top 20 for the coldest January.”
Niziol, working with National Weather Service statistical guru Dave Sage, used each day’s average daily temperature — the average of the day’s high and low temperatures — and then took the monthly average of those daily numbers.
The coldest January on record? The blizzard year, 1977, when the average daily January temperature was a frigid 13.8 degrees. The warmest was 1932, when the average January temperature was 37.2 degrees.
Average temperature this month in Wausau is 6.2 degreesSINCE CO2 LEVELS ARE GOING UP-UP-UP BUT TEMPERATURE ARE NOT THEY CANNOT CAUSE GLOBAL WARMING.
It doesn’t take a weather expert to tell Wausau residents that it has been cold lately, but January’s average temperature will make it one of the coldest on record.
The average temperature in Wausau this month is 6.2 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Green Bay. Based on the current forecast, January 2009 will be one of the top 15 coldest Januarys in the record books and the coldest January since 1994.
