Polar Plunge to Grip Majority of Contiguous US Next WeekPosted by TheSurvivalGuy on December 3, 2016 Posted in: News/ Current Events, Weather. Tagged: cold weather, current-events, News/ Current Events, Polar Plunge, Weather, weather climate, Weather map. Leave a comment
The coldest and most far-reaching arctic blast so far this season will spread across the majority of the contiguous United States next week.
Frigid air from the depths of the Arctic will plunge into the United States as the jet stream (a fast-river of air along which storms travel) drops southward.
The coldest days of next week will yield highs and lows of generally 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit below normal from the Northwest and Rockies to the Gulf and East coasts.
