Warmer temperatures on the way

It looks like it will be warming up in a big way over the next week with some above zero temperatures being forecast by Friday. You can see below that these 3 agencies all have it getting warmer, although remember that they are not all looking at the exact same time period.

So have we seen the harshest winter weather or as some longer range models are predicting will we be back to the frigid cold in early February? Time will tell.

First from the Environment Canada 10 day normalised temperature anomaly (ie. how much they expect us to be above average over the next 10 days):

Then from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service (USA), red colours mean temperatures above average:

and finally from the Weather Network, their 14 day trend map for Kitchener (I don't really believe that really high tail on the 25th, but it will be interesting to see how it develops over the next week):
