Frigid Blast Moving In!

Get ready for some of the coldest air we’ve seen in a while. An Arctic Blast of Canadian air is moving in! A word you have commonly heard recently the "Polar Vortex" is responsible for this chilling forecast. Of course this happens every winter of varying degrees. The Polar Vortex is an upper level low pressure system residing at the North Pole. During the winter, the jetstream can buckle causing a piece to break off and slide south into North America. What does this mean for us... high temperatures are expected to remain in the 20s Thursday & Friday coupled with strong wind gusts up to 40 mph which will make it feel like it is in the teens. ..

Winter Is Coming!

Even though the official start of winter doesn’t arrive until December 21st, our first blast of arctic air is set to arrive on tonight through the weekend. Our first blast of winter will cover much of the United States as frigid pool of air over Canada has spread south. Last week, temperatures in Alaska have been as much as 30-40 degrees below freezing in some parts of the state for the last week. This is not record breaking cold for us but with temperatures running at or above normal, it will still shock the system as highs will struggle to reach 40 by day and upper 20s by night. Winds gusting from the northwest will make it feel a lot colder.
