This just in: It is, will continue to be, cold

NWS cold temperatures forecast 2015-01-07

The graphic above was shared by the NWS Albany office this afternoon on Twitter. Yep, it's going to be very cold tonight.

We are now pretty much at what is typically the coldest part of the year for the Capital Region. The graph of daily average temperature for this area bottoms out at 22.1 degrees between January 14 to January 20, based on 30-year averages. So, temps in the 20s and 10s aren't that out of the ordinary.

That fact doesn't make it any easier to deal with, though. The high of near 30 projected for Friday is going to feel summery.

The coldest temperature ever: The lowest temperature on record for Albany is -28 degrees Fahrenheit on January 19, 1971.

(In this case, "on record" covers 1874 to the present present.)
