Brace up! An arctic blast is likely to hit parts of the United States and Canada, again. Whereas the first arctic blast only lasted for a few days (according to the article), this one may last about a week. On the one hand, the article says that it will be stronger than the last one, but on the other hand the first part of the article mentions it won't be as strong. Is it typical meteorological double-speak? We can only wait and find out.
Here's the article on USA Today:

But what can I say...it's winter.

The coldest my weather app says for the next 2 weeks is only -15 Celcius.
Is this "polar vortex" completely missing northern Alberta?

I liked how she made it seem like sunshine In California was a good thing.

It's been the worst drought in 100 years. But "sunny and 70" sounds horrible right now.

Feel lucky east coast we may be asking you for some of that water sometime soon.

No. A 'Polar Vortex' is a low-pressure Cyclone of cold air that is typically located near one of the Earths poles.

It's winter, regardless. - But that doesn't mean everyday seasonal cold is attributed to a disturbance in the polar vortex, which allows much cooler Arctic air to flow southward, affecting places that aren't really considered to be in 'the Arctic'. - Hence the word, 'polar'.

The news that I get is US-centric. Therefore, I wouldn't know. I just threw in Canada because I figured that Canada was bound to get the real brunt of it, but apparently not. Huh.

It did not say it's stronger anywhere in this article. If you're mistaking duration for cold intensity, you're still misleading people. All the article is saying is that while it won't be as cold (the cold won't be as intense) it will stick around longer (the set up allows for it to hang around longer)

As far as I'm concerned, it can hang around as long as it likes. Today (Tuesday) will be 70 for me (FL) while Wednesday through Monday won't get any warmer than 65, with 2 morning lows in the upper 30's (38 & 39) It's not as cold as the previous cold snap was, but I'll take it! We've had extended cold snaps before, though, this is nothing new to us in colder winter seasons, but I sure relish it when we get them. Personally, the best days down here are the rare ones that never hit 50 for the high (yes, Virginia, it happens!)

Maybe down through Saskatchewan and/or Manitoba.
Those 2 provinces are always crazy cold in the winter.

you can also use this one "it's the new normal"! the only reason there are so many deaths related to the cold is there are so many more people living rough in this country. but hey! make sure you keep sending that protection money to egypt! make sure you keep sending aid to places like iraq and talibanistan! make sure you keep sending smart lawn mowers to mars! make sure you keep paying people like Gen Dempsey and John Kerry! make sure you keep hiring lobbyists to write staggering examples of legal perfection, like the affordable crack act and nafta and the treaty with the iranians. that's why so many people die during the Winter. its because state and local governments see that theres a buck to be made by NOT doing what is right. after all it works for our "feral" government, and its king, and lords and ladies !

Has anyone else noticed that the national weather media is so disinterested in things like this. Who gives a flip about cold and drought? I mean without massive amounts of death, destruction and mayhem along with suffering and social discontent why bother?
The Weather Channel is so obvious about this. If a bunch of people aren't going to die-then screw it! They have better things to do like producing 'magazine shows' with heart stopping titles like 'The weather and your car keys! prepare now before killer rust moves in' or disaster prognostications like 'we all died 7 years ago the Weather Channel exclusive'.

And FOX can't stand it if someone manufactures a model that looks better reading the teleprompt than one of their young babes. Sometimes you must wonder just when society went to hell.

I SECOND the commotion. It's 'The Day After Tomorrow' TODAY!!
Now if I could whip a slider snowball as fast as Dennis, I'd be shattering
the blue breeze through some pretty pricey polyester. Just the "We're Coming for Your Lunchbox" look from the mound scares away the kids though...
I am a terrible old fart.

It could be the way things are shaping up in every other way, but if the plug gets pulled on something important this could be Amerika's Winter of Malcontents. NOT

You do realise that the Polar Vortex is actually there year round all the time right? A polar vortex is not some super storm, its idiotic reporters not knowing what in the world they are talking about. It's not like some weird combination of weather effects created a polar vortex. It just so happens that this particular winter, conditions are right for a portion of the always present polar vortex to push colder air a little further south.

It's winter, it's a cold front, but I guess cold front and winter don't play into peoples agendas and are not spectacular headlines.

The article itself informs that the "Polar Vortex" itself won't hit the US!

So, please try to use the source headline instead of inventing your own to grab attention for your thread.
The title of the article reads "Polar vortex II or Just another nasty winter storm"


It is winter after all, and cold/snow are to be expected at this time.

I suppose that this is just a bullsh$t way to prop up the "Global Warming" scam . Even though we're all freezing our asses off, it's all because of "Global Warming" right?
