I have a special post tonight about some very cold air that may be working into the region by next week. This article was originally done for Syracuse.com, where I am a contributing weather writer. Due to my contract with Syracuse.com, I cannot post the full article here for 48 hours, but my editor has given me the OK to post a summary and a link to the rest of the article.
There is a growing consensus- and concern- that a blast of arctic air will move south into the Midwest and Northeast next week in a pattern very similar to last winter. The jet stream pattern will become blocked over the northern Pacific, opening the flood gates for a period of possibly prolonged wintery weather.
This does not mean we will suddenly see highs in the 20, lows near 0º and enough snow to ski on- it is still November, after all, so even an arctic blast like this won’t be nearly as intense as it would be in February.
