In addition to the lack of snow, warm air will continue to break records across North America into next week. On Monday afternoon, below-zero wind chills will be almost 2,000 miles away from the Quad Cities. And think about this for a minute. That's wind chill, not temperature. Below-zero temperatures may only affect the northern tip of Canada. That is really out of the ordinary for Winter. Keep in mind, places at this high latitude only have a few hours of daylight in a day!
The warmer-than-normal weather pattern will continue across much of North America through the end of February.
