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?

Yeah, everyone knows that it normally doesn’t get that hot in Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California in July and August.

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?

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!

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.

I don't know about Atlanta, but in Michigan we have these things on our windows. I think they're called...screens.

It became part of the northern USA when the so-called “polar vortex” dropped down so far south ... :-) ...

Well... it would be an easy bet. There are always polar vortices. The only way they could not happen is if the planet stopped spinning.

Here, see for yourself.

We used to call these cold fronts “Canadian Clippers” or as Texicans say “Blue Northers” But Polar Vortex sounds way more scary and better to stampede sheep into accepting bad laws with.

All this yip-yip-yapping about a “polar vortex” in July. Well I have yet to see it here in New England. Still wicked humid with thunderstorms in abundance.
