Skip to comments.Polar Vortex II Set To Strike US This Week
Posted on 01/13/2014 9:33:02 AM PST by Kartographer
America is set to be hit by another blast from the polar vortex - although temperatures are likely to be higher than last week's extreme conditions.
The polar plunge is expected to move south from Canada, bringing colder air and sub-zero temperatures to the US this week.
Forecasters say it will sweep over the lower Mississippi Valley and Midwest on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then hit the East on Thursday.
The main thrust of the cold air will follow up a couple of days later.

Is anymore proof required of global warming?
Winter is cold. Stop the presses!
If this global warming crap gets any worse we are all going to freeze to death!
oh my . I mean really??? It’s winter folks . it gets cold and snowy and the jet stream sometimes drops down in odd ways. When will the reporting insanity end???
It was +60 degrees here in Kansas City yesterday. I think it was some reverse polar inversion which Im sure is being blamed on carbon life forms. The East Coast was told not to put their winter gear away just yet, but Im sure its all right for us being its already January 13th.
Cold weather during winter?
What ever. Time to dial down the hand-waving and drama.
It’s January, and they call these things COLD SPELLS.
How did the grandchildren of the Depression/WW2 generation become such wusses?
Late week temperatures here in the ‘Burgh predicted in the low 30’s. Pretty normal for Jan.
Everything is the fault of global warming. Hot weather is blamed on it. Very cold weather is also blamed on it. We’re not supposed to question the reasoning of our liberal overlords who spew forth pronouncements on the subject.
Just as Joe Bastardi of WeatherBELL said it would be.
Currently hyperventilating as I type this. :-)
Not too long ago, we in New England had a thing called WINTER. Every now and then the weather people cautioned us to dress warmly because of a recurring event called the “Coming of the MONTREAL EXPRESS”.
OK, we dressed warmly, gassed up the car, and managed to live through it. I remember once, as a kid and the temperature, but without a wind, dropped to -29F in the middle of Massachusetts.
With GLOBULL Warming, there is no longer a Montreal Express. Now we suffer from the POLAR VORTEX. Oh the humanity.
It does appear there’s a correlation between the professional football season and the cold. Notice how we never have cold during the baseball season. Perhaps a movement to play baseball year round would help to avoid sleet and snow.
In Texas we called them Blue Northers.
Polar Vortex sounds so much scarier.
I need to get my 4x4 fixed. 2X is getting dangerous with all the snow brought on by this feakish seasonal climate change.
(Eye roll here)
In the Midwest, we called it the Alberta Clipper. What’s the big deal with these wusses?
Reporters eating up the “Polar Vortex” terminology uncritically.
reminds me of the time Tim Flannery (utility player for the Padres) told a reporter that the gloves made today were nowhere near as good as the gloves of years past because the hole in the ozone layer was making the feed cows eat irradiated, causing their leather to be much thinner.
The reporter just nodded “yes!” and wrote the story of the interview.
Flannery was a hoot and enjoyed making stuff up to reporters. :)
Cold weather in the northern USA in January... completely unheard of!
IOW, fairly typical January weather for here.
‘Polar Vortex’ Hysteria: News frozen out by US media weather frenzy
and the weather channel wonders why direct tv is dropping them.
Oh sure, it’s so easy to blame Canada, we’re just a big target sitting up here with nowhere to move to.
Hey we didn’t create this crap, we’re doing as much driving & wood-burning as we can and it’s still not warming up this damn atmosphere. We’re getting steamrolled too!!
Will this be like the vortex in “The Final Countdown”?
Could be exciting! I say we drop a nuke in the middle of the Japanese fleet this time!
...............”When will the reporting insanity end???”
Never as long as there is money to be made.
Yeah in KC 30’s and 40’s in the 10 day. 39 is the average high for this date so nothing strange going on here. There also wasn’t anything strange about it getting to -11 earlier this month. Weather is getting so exaggerated.
. I mean really??? Its winter folks
But you are right. It’s weather. It reminds me of ocean waves. Every 7th wave is a big’n. It happens.
You’d think with all the uproar over Arctic invasions we’d declare war on the the Eskimos.
Well, it is winter time and it does get cold in the winter. . .
I love the cold....but not that cold
That’s because Globull warming kicked in.
Polar vortex, also known as COLD WEATHER BECAUSE IT IS WINTER!
actually, I’m so happy about this. I’ve been planning to build a 15 foot igloo in front of my house, and I was getting worried if it would be possible.
They said very cold or very hot and bundle up or take a shower....now its....we're all gonna die!!!!
I’m still in favor of calling it a “Polar Haboob”, which now makes even more sense, since, ahem, Haboobs come in pairs.
Not here in SoCal, were looking at 80 deg. temps for the next two weeks. For us it’s the drought that’s a recurring theme. I am expecting the “earthquake weather” stories to start.
Yes, Al Gore warned us that Global Warming could cause Planetary Cooling, so we must stop Global Warming before we all freeze to death.
Could BASEBALL be the root cause of Global Warming? Just think of the thousands of huge light bulbs burnt for every night game, all during a concentrated season. How much heat do they generate hours at a time?
NO MORE NIGHT GAMES could be the answer.
Sadly, there are people who will agree with this drivel.
I’m looking at our Minnesota forecast and it is pretty much normal temps (17 high, 0 low). Is this considered a polar vortex now?
It got butt ugly cold here too . and yeah it set a record (but only by a degree or two). We were at 2 on the thermometer but minus 25 with wind chill.
I always thought it was the 9th wave
yeah I remember those days too bank the embers you’ll need em at breakfast
I always thought it was the 9th wave
