OUTLOOK:
THE COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON IS EXPECTED THIS WEEK. OVERNIGHT LOW
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO FALL WELL BELOW ZERO WITH SOME AREAS AS
COLD AS 5 TO 15 BELOW ZERO. DAYTIME HIGHS WILL ONLY BE IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS FOR MOST OF THE WEEK. THIS BITTER COLD WILL LIKELY RESULT IN
CONSIDERABLE NEW FRAZIL ICE FORMATION ON AREA STREAMS. WATER LEVELS
ON SOME RIVERS ARE ABOVE NORMAL FROM RECENT RAINFALL. THERE WILL
ALSO BE AN INCREASED RISK FOR FREEZEUP ICE JAMS DUE TO THE INCREASE
IN FRAZIL ICE PRODUCTION.
