Cold air coming

After an unusually warm end to November and start to December, the eastern US is expecting a strong cold front to sweep through early this week. This strong cold front may even bring some severe weather to the lower Ohio River Valley tomorrow as the deep, Arcitc pool comes rushing in.

And then, t’s going to be cold. Not just “back to normal” but significantly¬†colder than average. Take a look:

There is still some ridging out west, and Alaska and southern California look warm, but look at that bullseye over West Virginia and Kentucky. It’s going to be quite chilly for the weekend, with those cooler temperatures continuing even into next week. Of course, it doesn’t appear as though there is a strong system to take advantage of the colder air to bring some December snow, but it is definitely time to break out the winter wear.
