Ever since we rang in in the new year our temperatures have yet to make it above freezing.  Sunday will be the 10th day, tieing the 4th longest stretch of subfreezing weather which occurred December 25 - January 3rd, 2000-2001.  The air will warm slightly, but could stay just below freezing Monday, making this the solo 4th longest stretch.  Here's the top three coldest weather spells...

#1 January 7-23, 1918 = 17 days

#2 January 9-22, 1978 = 14 days

#3 December 14-25, 1989 = 12 days

#4 Could be January 1-11th, 2010 !!! = could be 11 days
