Put away those shorts and tank tops, Chicago, and get ready for another "polar vortex."
Thatís what some people are calling the unseasonably cold temperatures expected to come to the northern and eastern United States next week, as a patch of cold air flows from northern Canada to the Great Lakes area and slips eastward toward the coast.

My brother lives in Atlanta. On the 4th of July they opened their windows in the evening to let some fresh air in the house. They haven’t done that before in July.
That damn Global Warming is at it again. Is Al Gore spending the summer on the east coast?
Heatwave. Here at the beach it’s gonna be up to 80 today (SoCal). Where’s my cool drink?
Yeah, everyone knows that it normally doesn’t get that hot in Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California in July and August.

I take it there are no bugs and mosquitoes in Atlanta... :)
There a lot to love about the East and the South but they take in the shorts weather-wise.
Hey. This is a rare spectacle. An article about weather in the LAT that simply reports the facts and doesn’t try to read some greater, Global Warming meaning into a local, temporary weather phenomenon.
It’ll be nice to give the AC (and my electric bill) a break.
Stupid question. Did any climate model predict a polar vortex?
The work of Satan
Just the one that had not been doctored
How about my tube-top?
When did North Texas become part of the Northern United States, they’re calling for highs in the 80s here next week.
There are, but in the south we have these things called “window screens”. ;)
Although it has been insanely humid here in SW AZ the last couple of weeks. It is monsoon season, but the humidity seems higher this year than last, at least to me it does. And being that I work outside most of the day, it sucks donkey nutts!
Ahhhh ... that’s wonderful! ... for the Midwest anyway ...
“Yeah, everyone knows that it normally doesnt get that hot in Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California in July and August.”
Right on. Normally in the Summer there are snow storms in that part of the country. It is the worst in the lower deserts with Death Valley being the worst of the lot.
Of course it does. That explains the ending of the movie The Day After Tomorrow.
