Well as we see about this time almost every winter, Alaska is nearing the peak of their cold season. A bitterly cold bubble of air is building up there with much of interior and northern parts of the state 30 to 50 below zero.
This will be something to watch! Often times it will sit up there for about 7 to 10 days or more, then a piece will break off and slide down the spine of the Rocky Mountains, bringing a wintry blast to much of the lower 48.
Here in Denver, it seems like almost every year we see a few days at or below zero, often around the end of January or the first of February.
Will this year be the same? Time will tell!
