One final note of interest, a stratospheric warming event that began in November has contributed to the unleashing of some brutally cold air masses into the middle and high latitudes from the polar region. A few weeks ago, China recorded its lowest temperatures in many decades and just in the last week, Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark and Finland have seen some of their coldest temperatures since last century.
There continue to be strong signs that intense cold air will make its way onto the North America side of the North Pole later this week and into the weekend. In fact, recent forecast model runs show some intense cold air reaching the middle Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys in about a week’s time with temperatures some 50 degrees below-normal for this time of year.
Buckle up…lots of action in the weather department during the next week to ten days.
