All streaks must come to an end and in this case Lafayette's frozen tundra streak of 7 days at 32 degrees or below is over. You can thank all of that sunshine and just think if we did not have that snow pack out there we would have been pushing 50 in some areas. But that is okay our high of 35 feels more like 50 in that warmer sunshine. If you notice we have a higher sun angle out there to work with so if you are walking the dog or taking a nice walk the middle 30s this time of year does not feel nearly as cold as it did back in early January. I am going to walk the dog and check back with you.
An update on tonight and Sunday....it looks like it will turn breezy and that will keep the patchy fog and freezing drizzle away and it looks like good travel weather for Super Bowl Sunday. We will still have to be ready for a few areas of blowing and drifting snow as the wind picks up tonight and tomorrow. The north-south roads will be impacted most. The good news is the warmer temperatures and sunshine did help put at least a crust on the snow. So I do not anticipate roads to be nearly as bad as what we saw on Thursday and Friday. I still have to give you my pick so stay tuned. Will the Cardinals shock the world? Nobody picked the Cardinals this year so it would be earth-shaking and in this year of the earthquake for Lafayette it may have been a sign.
