“We did see those warm temperatures for the first three weeks of January and then the switch flipped into a more regular winter time pattern with near normal or even slightly below normal temperatures in the last 10 days or so,” she said.

Erven added the cooler temperatures are expected to continue in the region for the first few weeks of February.

“Temperatures are going to fluctuate between below normal temperatures and to near normal temperatures and as we get into the second and even third week of February that colder pattern is expecting to take hold,” she said.
