It may seem cold this week, but it’s just a turn toward temperatures more seasonal for this time of year. It’s looking like New Year’s Eve will bring the next chance for snow in the eastern foothills and plains. In fact, given how this season has been, it may be the first snow of any significance for the urban corridor. A big snowstorm is not expected, but a widespread occurrence of at least 2-4 inches could make for wintry travel by Friday evening, possibly as early as the afternoon. New Year’s Day is likely to be the coldest day so far this season, with low elevation temperatures probably failing to rise above the 20s. It doesn’t look like a long-duration change, at least not this time. Temperatures are likely to get milder again by early next week.
