KINGMAN - Thanks to a storm system that originated in western Canada and arrived in Kingman late Thursday night, locals have a chance of experiencing something that hasn't happened since 1990 - five consecutive days of peak temperatures in the 30s.

"There's so much cold air behind this front," said Andrew Gorelow, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Las Vegas office. It all comes from Canada, and "it's pretty cold up there," he said.

The NWS is forecasting high temperatures in the mid-30s starting today and lasting through Monday, but Tuesday's forecasted high of "near 40" leaves potential for the consecutive-days-in-the-30s streak to continue, Gorelow explained.

Since 1901, there have been five instances in Kingman when the temperature couldn't get out of the 30s for five consecutive days, Gorelow said. The last time it occurred was late December 1990.

Should the streak stop at four days, it would still be the first time since 2010 that Kingman had four straight says of high temperatures stuck in the 30s.

At the other end of the spectrum, the overnight lows in the teens expected for the next four days arerare as well. Again, there's potential Tuesday night/Wednesday morning for Kingman to push its streak to five days.

The record in Kingman for consecutive overnight lows below 20 degrees in nine. That happened in 1949, Gorelow said. However, should there be five consecutive nights of overnight lows in the teens, it would still be one of the 13 longest such streaks in Kingman in the last 112 years.

All these chills haven't come with many thrills. Cold front after cold front has pushed through Kingman in the last month and a half or so, but there really hasn't been much snow.

"These systems are just not producing much precipitation," Gorelow said.

The front that crept in Thursday night was expected to possibly bring a little snow and rain.

"People may see a little," he said. "But don't expect much."

Whether or not Tuesday is cold enough to extend its cold streak to five, that's where it will likely end. Gorelow expects temperatures to creep back into the low-to-mid 50s, which is about average in Kingman for this time of year.

Here's the NWS five-day forecast for Kingman:

• Today is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 36 and wind gusts as strong as 18 mph. Overnight, the forecasted low is 18 degrees.

• Saturday should be mostly sunny with a high near 35 and an overnight low of around 18.

• Sunday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, a high near 35 and an overnight low approaching 20.

• Monday should be mostly cloudy with a high near 37 and an overnight low of around 20.

• Tuesday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 40 and an overnight low around 24.

Oh come on! 30's for 4 days.
Geez, maybe I should've brought all our winter clothes to Kingman instead of giving them to Goodwill, Purple Heart and Salvation Army before we moved from WI.

When it gets below zero and pipes freeze, snow feels like ice, salt doesn't work and cars won't start. Then I'll get worried.

BTW, we brought hats, gloves, boots and heavy coats with us. It gets cold at night in the higher altitudes. We did our homework.
Layer your clothing and curse Al "Jazeera" Gore for his lies about global warming.

"Kingman is cold - thanks a lot, Obama!"

Since it's become the 'in' thing to blame Obama for just about everything, I thought my headline would be more appropriate!

Robert Day:

I don't know what weather forecasts you are describing, but the one I read accurately predicted what we had yesterday--clouds, strong winds and a slight chance of rain or snow depending on your elevation late in the day and evening.

I would not rely on any weather forecast that comes from any of our radio stations, and the Phoenix TV stations pretty much ignore us. In my experience NOAA's forecasts are by far the most accurate and are readily available online at www.wrh.noaa.gov. You can get a seven-day forecast in your own neighborhood by clicking on the map.

I love it, the only time of the year that the neighborhood is not harassed by constantly barking dogs or loud Harley motorcycles.

Yes, it's cold outside. It's called winter. So remember all you parents, bundle your kids up and stop blaming the school system when they actually have to go outside and get some fresh air. Sure beats sitting in front of the TV!
