Cold Weather Coming Into KELOLAND

January 13, 2012, 6:15 PM by Ben Cathey

Cold Weather Coming Into KELOLAND
Lately it's seemed like warm and dry is the new normal. For many of us, Thursday was the first time to really bundle up.

We've survived the first two below normal days in quite some time with highs in the teens and low twenties.

The average high temperature in Sioux Falls is 26. In Rapid City it's 37. And South Dakota is not alone. The normal high in Omaha is 33 and in the cities it is 23. They too have been trending warmer, but are now below normal under this Siberian cold. 

Strange weather is spreading across the country. Midland, Texas, still in the midst of horrific drought, just picked up 10 inches of snow. 

For the season, that's more than Buffalo and Duluth, two of the snowiest cities in America.  that same storm caused flooding in Houston and spawned tornadoes in eastern Texas and in western North Carolina. 

A main culprit is the jet stream that remains belted well above the Canadian border. There are some signals that a more cold and active pattern is building. 

It's only the second time this winter we hit lows at zero or below. The first was more than a month ago on December 6th. By this time last winter, we'd already dipped below zero 14 times. 

That shows the huge effect any snowfall has on temperatures and offers a preview of next week.
