Coldest Air of the Season Coming

The folks in the great plains and Midwest are about to be hammered with snow, wind and bitter cold while we get plain old rain tonight (Tuesday) through early Wednesday. 

We won’t get their snow but we’ll get a taste of the arctic air that’s diving across the Canadian border.  Expect Friday morning’s lows to be in the low 20s.  It’ll be our first taste of a true polar air mass this season.

    Why don’t you have time to tell the weather without rushing through it. You did have the best local weather on TV until you changed the time and manner it which it was reported.

    I hope it will snow soon, but I doubt it will until sometime into January. There has been no true cold air mass over the east yet this year. Here’s hoping for a foot plus!

    when will our chance be for a decent snow

      With the way things are going, probably never!

    • Sirius...The Star Dog says:

      The storm track is shifting away from the Great Lakes and toward the east coast starting late this week and continuing until month’s end.

      With this change comes arctic air plunging deep into the eastern US and presenting good opportunities for at least one decent snow event before the new year.

    We have the precip jet string working for us, when will cold temps be in place for a storm like this one we are about to miss out on? I can remember much colder early Decembers in Richmond. Once the polar air masses get here will we continue to have the same frequency of precipitation we’ve had lately?

    • Mike says:

      Once the polar air masses arrive, the precip train will stop running. I wish it were not true but it always seems to work that way.

    to early to expect snow here, but here is hoping for a couple big ones this year.

    The curse of this part of VA. The cold air arrives in time for the moisture to move away and vice versa. I’m moving to the mountains it’s going to be the ONLY way I’m ever going to see decent snow again!

    In other words… IT STINKS!!!!

  9. scs says:

    Of course it is! Between moisture patterns. Sighhh… sooner or later the stars will align and it will snow during the day so we can enjoy the beauty! I swear I’m moving to the Carribean (sp?) so the weather can’t tease me! I don’t know what it’s gonna taste like, but I’m SURE it won’t smell good! 😛

    What does a true polar air mass taste like, anyway? And don’t say chicken.
