Another Arctic Blob...UPDATE!

UPDATE: 15 January 2009

This will likely be the coldest night (so far) this winter season. Lows will range from the single numbers to the mid teens.

I will post a new blog Friday on a pattern change to milder weather...stay tuned for that...and stay warm!

================================

UPDATE: 13 January, 2009

The arctic air is "on schedule" for a Wednesday afternoon/evening arrival. It will be windy and very cold Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

The coldest temperatures are expected Friday morning. Temperatures of 10-15 degrees are possible if skies remain clear Friday morning.

Another Arctic Blob This Week

11 January, 2009

The upper level wind flow (see map above) is very favorable for pushing more cold air southward this week, with the coldest batch moving in Wednesday night/Thursday. This air will be coming from the largely sunless lands north of the Arctic Circle (66 2/3 degrees north latitude), so it will be extremely cold.

While it does not look to be record cold at this point, a windy day with highs only in the 30s Thursday….followed lows in the teens…is expected by Friday morning.

A very dry pattern will also persist and outdoor burning is discouraged through this week.
