A heads up for the people living in these areas, because it's going to be cooold!

Deep freeze to invade central, eastern US this week


Piercing cold will send temperatures tumbling to dangerous levels for some across the central and eastern United States this week. The impending cold shot threatens to be the most far-reaching and bone-chilling blast so far this season.

“After the first true cold shot of the year this past week, much of the northern Plains can expect a more formidable shot of arctic air again this upcoming week,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Max Vido said.

The cold will be severe enough to bring the risk of frostbite or hypothermia to those spending time outdoors without proper clothing.

...

“Temperatures this low are 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit below average,” Vido said.

...

The core of the cold will grip the North Central states on Tuesday and Wednesday, before punching across the Northeast, including the Interstate 95 corridor on Thursday.

...

"In the Midwest and Northeast, some areas could experience their lowest December temperatures of this century," according to AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams.


Better put your winter jacket on before leaving the house.

We're actually getting a "warming" trend where I am. This weekend, the temp is gonna get all the way up to 46!! Then, it goes back to a high of 12 with the low at 3.

The rest of the month ain't much better. Oh well, it beats 2 ft of snow.

Check this map out.

Are you living "below that circle" by any chance?

Well it's winter, so I think most people assumed that to be the case.

It's above zero F here today, I consider that pretty warm. When it gets colder than my deep freezers, -5 to -7, then I consider it cold.

For the folks that are interested in a more detailed report, I recommend watching this video.

With -40C temperatures last week the province of Alberta eclipsed its all time electrical usage record by almost 2%, while at the same time -20F below normal temperatures spread across the USA. Interestingly even cold temperatures are coming next week that will drop temperatures to 50F below normal temperatures, which again will break thousands of cold weather records.

bunch of hooplah.
Up in Maine, these temps are just a few weeks ahead of schedule. We're already buried in snow, so let's get it over with.

Why do you guys still use the Fahrenheit scale?

That's old money, it's Celsius everywhere else. Get with the program.

It's like translating from French...

Welcome to our new season, folks! Just like we have replaced summer with Global Warming for political purposes, we are now replacing winter with Polar Vortex. Your new schedule of seasons will be: Global Warming, fall, Polar Vortex, spring and back to Global Warming again. There are talks about simply removing fall and spring so that Polar Vortex and Global Warming can then endlessly battle one another forever in a real world Song of Ice & Fire.

And yes, it will be bone breaking cold here this weekend. We are planning to do our usual Sunday shopping on Saturday to avoid going out in the cold that day.

Chicago here. Supposed to be 0 tonight with a windchill of -23. Sunday is supposed to have a low of -10! I don't even want to know what that windchill is going to be. Last week we broke our first snowfall record by 2 inches. We have like 7 inches of snow. The record was 4.9 inches.

I really want to move back south. Our winters have been relatively mild the past couple of years. What we are experiencing now is the Chicago winters I really remember.

But boy, that full moon last night, off the snow? So beautiful.

I have to do a run in the morning tomorrow--it'll be about 10-degrees with 15mph winds (putting the wind chill below zero). I can't wait! I love running in extreme cold temperatures, because apparently I'm an idiot.
