People in the Lodi area — and the rest of Northern California — will continue to shiver this week as temperatures dip into the 20s at night and slowly warm up in the daytime.

It will remain unusually icy in the Lodi area at night all week but get a little warmer during the daytime, said Dave Samuhel, a meteorologist for AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.

In the Lodi area, residents are expected wake up this morning to temperatures in the mid-20s. Tonight, the low temperature will go all the way up to 29, Samuhel said.

California’s cold snap the past several days was caused by the Arctic jet stream dipping much farther south than usual in California, Samuhel said. The jet stream goes northward in the eastern United States, causing the East Coast to actually be warmer in some areas than in California. Philadelphia was in the 50s on Monday afternoon, Samuhel said.

It’s even been in the 20s in the Bay Area the past several nights, which is typically warmer in the winter than the Central Valley. San Francisco International Airport had an unusual low of 36 degrees on Monday.

Want to go to Los Angeles to warm up? Guess again. It’s in the 30s there at night, too, Samuhel said.

However, the most bone-chilling climes are in the Lake Tahoe area, where it was 14 degrees below zero early Sunday morning and minus 11 on Monday morning. South Lake Tahoe reached 33 degrees on Monday afternoon.

Locally, the forecast for Stockton Airport, where AccuWeather.com gets its weather readings, calls for a high of 51 degrees on Wednesday. But it will be only 31 degrees that night. It should warm up to 60 degrees by Friday, but it will remain cold at night, he said.

“Afternoons will be improving, but the nights will be slower to increase (in temperature),” Samuhel said.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
