On the left is the CPC 6-10 day temperature outlook for Jan. 1-5, in the middle we have the 8-14 day outlook for Jan. 3-9 and on the right the NAEFS outlook for Jan. 3-9. Blue indicates higher probability for colder than average temperatures. All three outlooks have Michigan with the higher odds of cooler than average weather. It’s going to be a cold New Year’s Eve and Day with temperatures a good 10-15 degrees colder than average. Speaking of cold, it was down to -58 at Chicken, Alaska Thurs. am. The U.S. highest temp. on Thurs. was 86 at Ventura CA – giving the U.S. a 144-degree temperature difference! Here’s a comparison of Northern Michigan snowfall vs. record snowfall to date.
