Scottychaos, I have a weather buddy up there that said he had a high,on the 18th and 19th, of around 7-8F. I don't know if his information was false or not, but that is what he said. Also, if you look at the link you posted - http://www.wunderground.com/history....alendar
it shows that after Feb. 5th most of the days and nights are 5-15 degrees below average, whcih is what I was forecasting - highs going from above average in January to below average starting around Feb. 5th.Also don't forget that the cold snap isn't over yet. It shows for the 27th a low of 4F.
Computer models continue to show a cold upper low moving over the Canadian maritimes. If this verified, places in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and even North and South Carolina could see some very cold air , even colder than the arctic outbreak in December. But, the models have been inconsistent, so it is very hard to say what will happen. My conclusion, Febuary will continue to remain below average for most of the eastern US, and a possible shot of very cold air is possible around The end of Febuary - early March. It will also be slightly above average in terms of snowfall for the Northeast, with the possibility of another big snowstorm around March 1, give or take a day or to.
