The first signs of the next Arctic intrusion will come this weekend across the northern Plains and Midwest, as a clipperlike system drops southward out of Canada.

Following a fresh coating of snow across the region, temperatures will plummet.

The system will then join forces with a separate disturbance tracking into the southern Plains early next week.

This added boost of upper-level energy will allow the cold air to force its way southward.

Millions of Americans across the Plains and Midwest will likely wake up to temperatures ranging from the single digits to the teens on Monday morning.

As the disruptive storm system continues its trek eastward, winterlike cold will expand well into the southern United States, bringing a record-challenging cold air mass to the Gulf Coast on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

As temperatures bottom out on Wednesday morning along the Gulf coast, places like Pensacola, Florida; Mobile, Alabama; Gulfport, Mississippi; and even Houston, Texas, can expect readings to hover around the freezing mark.

Farther north, midwinterlike cold is also expected early next week.

An expansive area of high pressure centered in the Midwest will promote mainly clear skies, allowing temperatures to drop. Lows in the single digits and teens can be expected.

By Tuesday, winterlike temperatures will expand into much of the Northeast as well.

Arctic air is expected to filter into the Northeast through Tuesday and Tuesday night.

By Wednesday morning, temperatures are forecast to drop below 20 degrees F with single-digit temperatures likely in interior locations of New England.

Low temperatures this cold will challenge records across the region.

The risk for frozen water pipes and dead car batteries will be renewed across the central United States.

Extra layers will be needed for kids heading out to the bus stop, or for individuals working outside.

The extreme cold will also lead to a spike in heating costs and electric bills.

After the blast of Arctic air, temperatures will continue to remain below average through the remainder of the week across the eastern half of the United States. So be prepared! [Accuweather, Today]

  1. Grand solar minimum influenced jet streams. Hopefully everybody’s supply of natural gas is in working order. .

    Would hate for the sane people of the North East to freeze.

  2. OH HERE’S ONE MORE The Dems want everyone to go electric and get away from natural gas in their homes. They say it is pollution
