On Monday, Cedar Rapids had its first day of the season with a high temperature below freezing (a frozen day). This was the earliest such day since 1996 as shown by the featured chart. Does an early first frozen day provide any insights into the winter season ahead? Based on average temperature for the winter season (Dec - Jan - Feb), the bottom chart would indicate that the answer is no. The next 7-10 days have daily highs in the 50s, so our next frozen day will have to wait for a bit.

Good = 27
Bad = 6
