Posted on 01/03/2014 6:22:47 PM PST by Morgana
Records will be challenged, if not broken Monday and Tuesday as a polar vortex dives south across central and eastern United States and sets up squarely over the Ohio River Valley. This next storm system will be some of the worst weather, in regards to the temperatures, that we have seen in more than 5 years. Some of the records for Tuesday have been in place for more than 60 years and in some cases over 100 years!
FLASH FREEZE: A dramatic warm up will occur Saturday and Sunday across Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia with temperatures warming into the 40s and some highs on Sunday near 50 degrees. This warm air will be detrimental to the dangerous travel conditions that will set up later on in the evening. The storm system will begin as rain for 2 to 3 hours at best and rapidly change over to snow. The rain will make the ground saturated and that layer of water will freeze rapidly. This is called a "flash freeze" and is one of the most dangerous setups for anyone traveling across the region.

Yeah - that was in the movie “The day after tomorrow” or maybe it was “The day before yesterday”... I forget.
I spent a couple of hours this morning scraping about 12 inches of Gore’s global warming off the driveway, at -1F, and a windchill around -15F.
Looking forward to this weekend storm. Got plenty of firewood, plenty of beer, a new 5# bag of salted peanuts, plenty of feed for the critters, and four football games.
Or was it “I haven’t fought a windmill in a fortnight”?
Well, it is becoming quite obvious the United States has reduced it CO2 emissions to much. This is causing the country to cool off more than normal. I suggest we fire up all the coal plants and get your SUVs out on the road. We have to raise our CO2 levels.
With the windchill added in, we’ll get close to -60F....
It’s been worse...
-15 this morning in southern Michigan today but its supposed to warm up to near freezing tomorrow then plummet to -0 highs with snow and wind.
ROFLMAO!!! Great attitude, standard way to handle Ohio’s winter weather (Brunswick).
My winter survival kit consists of a bottle of good wine, a collection of classical music, and a good book.
This should be interesting... a very bad sort of interesting.
Oh, and for the first time in at least ten years our harbour froze.
We had that yesterday. What’s really bizarre it that we still had some hard-core homeless sleeping outside and nobody froze to death.
Quick! Start burning coal!!
Mississauga, it's suburb, is bigger than most U.S. cities.
Looks like Joe Bastardi has been right about this winter.
“Flash freeze” so that is what Al Gore calls global warming these days?
well he did change it to Climate Change so he could cover everything , LOL
“5# bag of salted peanuts” !
Don’t forget the Charmin!
Based upon solar output and relational solar cycles there are predictions that we are entering a Dalton Minimum type of cold period. This should last about 30 years. If we have a Maunder Minimum type of event it will last 200 to 300 years, and is far colder than a Dalton Minimum. The Dalton Minimum type of mini ice age will render farming implausible if not impossible in Canada for a significant period of time. There will be starvation in the world like we have never seen. Best get ready.
