January 2016 outlook

January 2, 2016

RT  December was another unusually mild month. Temps were warmer than normal on the first 17 days of December at MSP airport, and our average temperature for the month was 10.5 degrees above normal in the Twin Cities. The highest reading at MSP airport was 47 degrees on December 9th and 10th, and the chilliest low temp was 7 degrees on December 31st. It was the third warmest December in Twin Cities history, and 9.5 inches of snow were measured at MSP airport.

Looking ahead, the January temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a slight tendency for above normal temperatures over Minnesota and Wisconsin:


The outlook doesn’t mean that every day is expected to be milder than normal…it is the average temp for the entire month that shows a slight tendency to be above normal.

Our Twin Cities average high temperature changes very little during the month of January. It is 24 degrees on January 1st and 25 degrees on the 31st.
