Temperatures above freezing may be difficult to come by for the rest of this January as the well advertised cold weather arrives for the weekend and looks to persist. We will likely see at least seven straight days with the high temperature below freezing. The frequency of having this situation is shown by the featured chart. The chance of a given day having the previous seven days below freezing is about 1 in 10. While not shown and for comparison, the frequency for a colder location like Fargo, ND is about 50%.
