— The bitter cold weather pattern will ease over the next few days as the jet stream — which has brought the cold — shifts back northward into Canada.
After a mild start to the month, temperatures have been struggling to get above freezing for much of the last week. While a heat wave certainly is not expected, we can expect temperatures to come back up to where they should be this time of year.
In fact, readings should come above normal as early as this weekend. The average high for this time in December is 38 degrees. Highs are expected to reach into the 40s beginning Saturday and likely will stay well into the 40s through the upcoming week.
So whatever snow is still left on the ground will be history by the end of the weekend.
