Consecutive Days With Below Zero Highs

January 6, 2014, 6:11 PM by Scot Mundt

Consecutive Days With Below Zero Highs

For a lot of us, this is the second day in a row with below zero highs.

The arctic cold has its grip on KELOLAND.  Sunday's highs were in the single digits below zero in eastern South Dakota.  Monday's highs were in the teens below.  The last time we had two days in a row that temperatures never climbed above zero was in 2004, when Sioux Falls saw highs of five and four below.

But in 1997, the city recorded three consecutive days with highs below zero in January.  The high temperatures for those three days were 12 below, nine below and one below.  Three years prior to that, Sioux Falls had two more consecutive days with below zero highs.

Cold air masses are slow to retreat.  While we'll still have areas recording below zero highs on Tuesday, we'll also have more places see above zero highs.  The warming trend is expected to continue straight into the weekend with highs in the 30s later this week.
