The cold weather so far this month has definitely been noticeable. This is the coldest start since 2003 and depending on your area around the 10th coldest such period in the past 100 years. So yes, it has not been your imagination that even by our standards this month as been very cold to this point. Some of the snow in the area today is associated with a push of warmer air into the region. Although not necessarily “warm” the air temperatures will be improved this weekend with next Monday probably being the warmest day in the near future. There are signs that the well below average temperatures will come back by the end of next week.
