Winter Storm in Midwest

Colder-than-average temperatures will be coming to the Midwest and West, but also into the South and eventually, the East this weekend. An Arctic Blast will usher in a pattern change featuring subzero temperatures and most likely a large cold spell for the Northern states of the USA thanks to the Arctic Blob.

Arctic Blob Winter Storm

Where is the Blob Coming from?

This massive arctic blast is coming down through Canada and is going to hit the Mid-West and Northeast. Subzero lows are likely for the Rockies and areas from the western and northern Great Lakes into the Upper Midwest, northern and central Plains, while wind chills may dip as low as 30 degrees below zero.

This is the first subzero front to hit America this winter season. The blob of arctic blast should hit the Midwest today and head to the Northeast by Sunday.

Weekend Forecast

Here's a general timing of when the cold air will arrive according to weather.com:

  • Saturday: Highs 15 to 25 degrees below average will engulf most of Montana east of the Continental Divide, the Dakotas, Nebraska and eastern Colorado. Temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average will be found southward through the Plains into the Texas Panhandle and as far east as eastern Minnesota and central Iowa.
  • Sunday: Highs 10 to 20 degrees below average will grip much of the Plains and Midwest, from the Dakotas and eastern Colorado to Illinois, Wisconsin and into central Tennessee.
  • Monday: Below average temperatures continue throughout much of the Midwest and highs will be slightly below average in the South and portions of the Northeast as well.

Expectations

No one knows how the weather will effect travel, but more than likely this front will cause lots of delays across America. If you plan to travel for weekend make sure you plan for delays through Tuesday.

With southern states getting colder weather than usual it would be wise not to make attentional travels this weekend. This front is also bringing precipitation with it which could led to large amounts of ice which southern states are not usually prepared to handle.

Stay Safe, Stay Warm
