It’s cold outside, but the cold low temperatures aren’t likely to break records in North Dakota, according to North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network Interim Director Daryl Ritchison. “One of the things keeping us from colder potential is the wind. The up to 10 miles-per-hour winds keep temperatures up,” explains Ritchison. “I hope the forecasts we are hearing will be too low. With arctic air, it’s hard to say.” Temperatures will start warming up Thursday. Along with this will be light snow. “The brief warm up Friday and Saturday ought to be pretty warm and parts of the region could get close to freezing. On Sunday, we’ll get cold again. Most of next week will be as cold as we were one week ago. It will stay cold awhile.”
