We will continue to see cold weather across eastern North Carolina through the end of January. A deep snowcover to our north and west coupled with a northwesterly flow aloft will continue to funnel cold air from western Canada into the Southeast. Through the first 20 days of January temperatures have averaged about 6 degrees below normal. While warmer than December, January has still proven to be a formidable month for chilly air. Current indications point to the chilly air lingering into early February but I'll have an update of that by next week. With all the cold air around, there will most likely be a threat of a wintry event over the next two weeks. Stay tuned!
