Another week of up & -- mostly -- down temps.  Tue. will still be mild but with gusty southwest winds that will become west in the afternoon then northwest by evening as a cold front moves to the southeast.  A few showers will accompany the front Tue. afternoon.  Sustained winds will average 15-25 mph but gusts will be 30+ mph.  Temps. will reach the mid 60s to around 70 Tue. afternoon then plunge to the upper 20s to low 30s by Wed. morning with wind chills from 15-25 degrees.
An inland freeze will occur Wed./Thu./Fri. & Sat. with a freeze all the way to the beaches possible Thu. morning.
There is no significant warm-up in the forecast through at least early next week.

So the Super Bowl matchup is set in NYC.  The Seahawks -- Sherman in particular -- might be able to blow enough hot air for milder temps.  But the weather pattern remains dominated by intrusions of arctic air into the Lower 48 combined with strong upper level troughs of low pressure which adds to potential storminess.  In other words, the pattern is unsettled near the end of the month into early Feb. with the possibility of wet (or white) weather.  Long range global forecast models have been relatively consistent (for still being nearly 2 weeks away) in developing an eastern U.S. storm by Super Bowl weekend but, of course, have jumped around on location.  We've already been hearing dire forecasts but let's face it, the big game is still a long ways out, & it's way too early to be very confident about the weather.  But below is the American GFS forecast model for Super Bowl Sunday.  If anywhere close to accurate, the gist is wet, windy but relatively mild.  Should the surface low pressure end up farther south or east, cold air would become more dominant.
