Record low temperatures forecasted as arctic blast deep freezes parts of USA

Via The Watchers, 10 December 2013

Powerful and deadly winter storms covered parts of United States in a deep freeze over the last couple of days. More than 6 000 flights were canceled and at least 80 000 households were left without electricity in Washington, Virginia and Maryland on Monday, December 9. ​A new storm is expected to move in by the end of the week.

Dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills are forecast to persist in the western half of the United States, with temperatures about 10 to 30 degrees below average from Rocky Mountains, Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley.

Quick moving clipper systems are forecast to move across the Great Lakes on Tuesday and Wednesday producing "lake effect" - lake enhanced snow over the Great Lakes through Wednesday morning. Lake effect snow will continue downwind from the Great Lakes through Wednesday evening in the wake of the clippers.

yes its coooold here and its going to be a long winter. according to clifs latest wujo he sees winter here lasting till almost may. considering he has been dead-on on all the weather we were going to see leading up to this winter I am very much believing that forecast. Its not even winter and its acting like its deep winter already. Its not set in stone though and some areas of northern hemisphere might avoid this forecast but many will feel its effects.
