Here comes the Cold(er) Air!



Quote:
The frigid air is coming from the North Pole and — due to a jet stream — will be intense and mobile, Ryan Maue, a meteorologist for Weather Bell, told The Associated Press. Forecasters said record lows could be eclipsed.

"All the ingredients are there for a near-record or historic cold outbreak," Maue said. "If you're under 40, you've not seen this stuff before."
Because of the winds, “It may feel as cold as negaticve 50 to negative 60 on Sunday night over sections of the north-central states," the National Weather Service said...

Read More
Are you ready for the deep freeze? Coldest air in 20 years to hit the midsection of the country. They're calling for 10 year record lows in the Charlotte area on Tuesday night.

But, it'll be a balmy 60°F here in Charlotte next Sunday for the Panthers vs. 49ers game.

If you've got some cold stories or picks to share let's see whatcha got.

Well we are upto 10 right now though the 25mph winds still keeping wind chill below 0. Glad I added some antifreeze to the SC.

I know you guys like Oxman in the frozen north have better equipment for this than I do but man its cold.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

We had rain last night change over to snow as the temps froze. A lovely sheet of ice covering everything - and by tonight it's going to be so cold that salt doesn't melt the ice/snow on the roads.

I don't need to step outside the house though - if all the schools I work for are closed (which they are today and likely will be tomorrow as well - possibly Wed. too) my company tells me to "stay home and work remotely".

The Cougar is covered with a sheet of ice at the moment - the T-bird couldn't get a garage spot this year but it's under two car covers in my parents' driveway, safe from all the nasties.

It should be interesting here in NJ. Friday we had a foot of snow, today it is 50 and raining so all the snow will melt, and then tonight it is dropping down to 9, so all that rain and melted snow will make a nice sheet of ice on everything, so tomorrow morning's commute will be interesting to say the least.

If you're talking about a cold year you might be thinking of 1985 not 1983 Darren. 1983 was a big year for snow not cold.

There's a great historical list of NC weather events that I found here: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/rah/events/

Here's the record setting day from 1985.

Mostly the COLD Ron , Our family was at grandpa's that eve. Temp 0, the back storm door to the kitchen was a solid sheet of ice from the condensation on it We got back home to the house we were RENTING and no water (Hmmm) after they thawed had around 15 busted pipe's. My uncle's toilet froze and was laying busted in the floor lol . We both heated with wood at the time , had the heat on, but to low it was . I had just started in telecom then and was a full time splicer , no ground work could be done for many days.

Here is a story .
1983: “The Coldest Christmas Ever”

Whether or not you’re dreaming of a white Christmas this year, chances are you’d rather do without sub-zero temperatures on the big day. With January and February traditionally bringing the coldest temperatures of the year, Christmas day tends to be relatively mild in much of the country. In fact, the much-heralded white Christmas is little more than a pipe dream for the vast majority of the continental U.S.

But in 1983, the nation’s cold weather lovers got a little more than they bargained for. Overall, the 1980s dished out some of the coldest Decembers on record, but 1983 was king of them all, with 70% of the month colder than average over much of the country.

On Christmas Eve and Christmas day of that year, more than 125 cities east of the Rockies broke temperature records for the day, and 34 hit the record cold temperatures for the entire month of December. These punishing tempertures, which dipped below zero in many areas, were also accompanied by brutal, stinging winds. In addition, heavy snow covered the ground from the Pacific Northwest through the Great Plains and Northern Appalachians.

Havre, Mont., dipped to a numbing -50°F. Chicago, where high temperatures never went higher than −10° F during the several days leading up to Christmas, reached a low of -25° F. In Sioux Falls, S.D., temperatures dropped below 0° F on December 15 and remained there for more than nine days, dropping to −23 °F over Christmas. The area also saw 60 mph winds, which brought wind chills of −70 °F. The average temperature in Minneapolis for the month of 3.7° F, the coldest on record for the city. The barometric pressure at Miles City, Mont. reached 31.42 inches, a record for the U.S. Even normally balmy Huntsville, Ala., plunged down to -1° F, while Galveston, Texas, dipped to a frosty 14° F.

Yeah..It's been pretty bad this last couple of days..We still had about a foot of snow on the ground from the snowfall a few days ago..

Then last night night we got another foot of snow..I went into work since my job is very close to home..

I was surprised to see only three of us made it in on my shift in my department..

So we worked for a couple hours, and they sent everyone home..There has been a class 3 Snow Emergency going on for the past couple of days here..

After I got home the snow turned to a sleet/snow mix putting a nice hard shell on everything, and freezing the doors shut on my truck..

We're sitting about the same as Vic right night temperature wise about -15°f right now with over 2 feet of snow..

I get to go out there later, and shovel snow..

On the bright side it's supped to get into the high 30's later this week..Hopefully..

Yea it's pretty cold up here. My outside gauge is saying -22. All the schools are closed today as well as department stores and grocery stores. The news is even saying don't take the walk to the mailbox to get your mail. It would suck if the power went out for some people.

LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

You sure it's not a class 2? Class 3 is nobody except emergency personnel. You got a lot more snow from yesterdays's storm than we did over here. We got mostly rain which melted away probably half the snow we had from last week. Lake effect stuff is still coming down in brief spells. You can literally see steam rolling off the lake as far as the eye can see - even with the water being some 34-35 degrees (and it in fact being frozen for a few hundred feet beyond the shoreline). Here's the view out our third floor window:


Took me about 25 minutes to scrape all the ice and snow off the windows of the Cougar this morning. I'm not going anywhere but I wanted to clear the nasty stuff off the car while it was "better" out than it's going to be tomorrow; in case I do need to go somewhere I can just hop in and go.

Yeah..Even most of surrounding counties were under a class 3 yesterday..

That might have lowered to a class 2 today..I'll have to check the weather again..

I'm getting ready to break out the ski mask, and head outside..

Well the SC didn't like the cold at all. Three tries to get it to start and felt like have flat tires once got on the asphalt (and I run a all season tire), plus all kinds of new noises.

Looks like we are coming out of it here got up 13F and winds are slowing down to 15mph. 25F tomorrow and above freezing on Wednesday.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

Yeah I remember that Christmas. I had a '70 Olds 98 with a bad heater core. Got down to five degrees. The fog on the inside of the windshield would freeze. Not fun! Only busted heater core I ever had. (till I replaced two of 'em in the 96 bird)
