Polar Vortex To Bring ‘Several Rounds Of Arctic Cold’ To Eastern US

The eastern U.S. is forecast to see “several rounds of Arctic cold” through early February, according to meteorologists.

While the western U.S. is forecast to stay warm and dry, the National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts at least a 50 percent chance the Northeast and Great Plains will see frigid winter weather starting from Feb. 3 to 7.

The most northern reaches of Wisconsin and Minnesota, of course, have an 80 percent chance of below normal weather, which is not exactly great news given those areas are already well-below freezing.

But Americans living east of the Rocky Mountains can also expect a burst of cold weather before the timetable laid out in the NWS forecast.

Weather.us meteorologist Ryan Maue said a “polar vortex” spinning over Hudson Bay will put the eastern U.S. in a deep freeze over the next five days.

Temperatures in D.C. are expected to drop slightly over the next couple of days, warm up, then drop again by the end of the week.

Tuesday morning could even see some snow during rush hour, The Washington Post reported.

    No one has defined the ideal global climate or why it should remain constant. Before the industrial revolution , climate changed . Warmist angst implies that Earth’s climate is being harmed by 7 billion consumers. Cool is preferable to warm? That is a subjective call.
    Would they prefer a stagnant climate?
    Warmists’ lack of objectivity is glaring, so I ask them why their preference matters at all.

    Look at a map of the ENTIRE globe – see all that red and orange pretty much everywhere else? That is heat.
    In fact, the last 4 years ate the hottest 4 years.
    Globally that is (not the 1% of the eastern US).

      Where there are/were no thermometers, they take the liberty of guesstimating.

      As for the eastern USA representing “1%” of the Earth, it’s home to millions of voters. They don’t appreciate being made to look like fools.
      When Al Gore said he had expected frigid temperatures, that was the last straw.
      The UN / IPCC had big eyes for the USA . Now she’s gone.

        uhh – English please.

        Which ones? All of them.

        As far as being made a fool of — EVERY earth, space and atmospheric science organization on the planet has a position paper in SUPPORT of man-made global warming theory.
        Clearly, you are the fools.

          Do any of those papers specify how much of the warming human CO2 is responsible for? 1% or 99%? Impossible. No one can quantify the entire carbon cycle.
          As for my quip about the UN/IPCC, they were very close to receiving a new revenue stream from America. Not now.

            Yes, the only industrialized country in the world is not accepting the prevailing science (from scores of scientific authorities and disciplines) and from from becoming a global leader in this century’s biggest industry — renewable energy.
            Talk about foolish.

    This is such an interesting forecast in that it is almost the exact opposite of what is forecast for NYC through this coming Sunday, with temps normal to slightly above normal. So, I guess we’re on the 50% side of warming, not on the arctic, bone-chilling one. Too bad, I was so hoping for a return to the truly arctic conditions of early January!

    I would like to see it snow a few feet on some bunch of Global Warming/Climate Change wackos running around in their sunshine suits after they threw away their snow shovels becuase they were dumb enough to beleive the New York Pravda as well as Al Bore and Leonardo DiCaprios fake films
