Discussion              

The core of an intensely cold Arctic air mass will drop southward towards Texas during the next 24-48 hours. After that, the Arctic air mass will shift to the east and reach the eastern seaboard by late Friday.  Numerous low temperature records are likely to be set over the next few days; especially, in the central US from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. Blizzard conditions will accompany this advancing Arctic air outbreak over many sections of the country with the Great Lakes region likely to experience some of the worst weather with an extended period of extreme conditions from Friday into much of the upcoming weekend. 

The strong Arctic frontal system that represents the leading edge of this intensely cold air mass will likely reach the Huntsville region on Thursday.  The passage of the powerful Arctic front will not go unnoticed around here.  On the table will be plunging temperatures on the order of 25 or 30 degrees in a short period of time, powerful and potentially damaging wind gusts, a possible “flash-freeze”, and even a burst of snow that can put down a quick small accumulation.  A frigid weekend will follow with Christmas Eve (Saturday) and Christmas Day (Sunday) the coldest in many years in much of the eastern half of the nation.
