Like a bad movie sequel, another wave of cold polar air is descending on the Lakeland area ... and this time it’s going to settle in for an extended stay.

According to Tom Helman, a metrologist with the National Weather Service Green Bay office, the cold air descending from the north will be around through next weekend at the least, though the coldest wave will hit early next week.

“We’re looking at another strong push of arctic air this weekend, with Monday and Tuesday being the coldest days of the current surge,” Helman said.

After the frigid start to the week, Helman said the forecast will be far below normal temperatures through next weekend. 

Daytime high temperatures through the first week of February are projected to be in the high single-digits or low double digits, while the lows are to go below zero every night for the first couple weeks of February.

He said the pattern will begin to moderate after that, with a chance of warmer air (into the high teens or low- to mid-20s) moving in about the second week of February.
