There is the potential for the coldest air in a couple of years for the Northeast and perhaps the Midwest during the first week of January 2013.

The cold push from the Arctic is coming in stages during the first seven days or so of 2013. During next weekend the flow could deliver lower temperatures than all of the winter of 2011-12 and perhaps close to that of 2010-11 for part of southeastern Canada and New England.

The weather has been really messed up in my area (Central Illinois). Currently, it is 41 degrees Fahrenheit outside right now. Temperatures in the single digits may seem like a big shock, but it is not too out of the ordinary.

I think the big question should be why has the temperature been out of whack lately?

Edit: Thanks for the heads up on the upcoming temperatures though! I will be sure to bundle up!

I hope they're wrong. I hate the cold and snow. I'll take another winter like we had last year. Only had to use my snow blower 3 times.

Boxing Day Storm Punches Out East Coast Rainfall Records
December 29, 2012

The strong storm which moved up the East Coast on December 26-27 brought record rainfall amounts from North Carolina to Connecticut. National Climatic Data Center reports show 196 daily precipitation records broken and 7 tied for a total of 203 across the U.S. on the day after Christmas.

S. Korea's coldest winter in 27 years

South Korea is suffering the coldest early winter in 27 years. Many places in the country are experiencing cold weather with heavy winds or blizzards.

Britain prepares for coldest winter in 100 years

Councils are gearing up for what could be Britain's coldest winter in 100 years, as sub-zero temperatures and snow follow days of downpours that have devastated large parts of the country.

If the forecasters have it right, then we’re set for what could be the coldest winter for 100 years in the UK. Don’t get caught out with cold, wet fingers and toes!

We love to talk about the weather in Britain, and this year has been no exception. It doesn’t seem that long ago we were complaining about the wettest summer for 100 years and now, following a short respite, some forecasters believe that we’re about to experience what could be the coldest winter for 100 years. With temperatures expected to drop as low as -20° and snowfall expected any day now, this could be the time to stop talking about it and start preparing.

This December has been the coldest and snowest we have had in years. Since about the beginning of the month, i have thought it felt more like January or February weather. I am up in the boonies of northern Maine. I think it is Tuesday they are predicting a high of around 3 and wind, which will make it feel like -30 F. That is almost cold enough to start canceling school so the kids won't get frostbite waiting for the bus.

I've lived here in CO for almost 6 years now, as a Midwest implant. That said, the temps here have been so horribly frigid, especially at night, that I can't stand it. I'm used to 40s & 50s with skies full of sunshine at this time of year since I've lived here. In Illinois, it seems as if it is the opposite, at least that's what my family tells me. THeir mild, pretty snowless winter is almost like last year's.

Anyway, tired of these cold weather systems here in CO, most of them snowless. Where are my 3 foot snow storms? Snow that melts the next day from the sun! Ah well

Here we call it weather sometimes it's good sometimes it's bad but hang out for a bit and it'll change. It's not global warming it's not climate change just weather and the internet letting everyone whine about it to someone elas

Hopefully this means that we won't get hit by heat-domes again this summer...
