BREAKING WEATHER:  AIRPORT DELAYS
As One Arctic Front Moves Through the East, Another One Drops into the Plains

 

According to the National Weather Service, an arctic front will bring heavy snow, ice, dramatically colder temperatures, and gusty winds from the Middle Atlantic to the Northeast today. Ice accumulations up to a quarter of an inch could cause power outages and create hazardous travel conditions.

Later this weekend and early next week, a new arctic front will bring widespread snow from the Plains to the Great Lakes.

Saturday Jan 13 2018 - Monday Jan 15 2018

...Cold blast continues eastward today with sharply colder temperatures
for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast...

...Periods of heavy snow early this morning for northern New York/New
England...

...Roller coaster ride of temperatures for the central to northern U.S.
through Monday..

A strong cold front will continue moving through the Northeast today,
followed by sharply colder temperatures in its wake. Twenty four hour
temperature changes behind the cold front have ranged from 20 to 40
degrees from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast, and these dramatic changes
will translate into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today. Temperatures
will fall this morning behind the cold front and will not rise much during
the day. Locally heavy rain for New England will change this morning to
freezing rain and sleet followed by locally heavy snow on the back side
impacting portions of northern New York into northern New England.
The
greatest threat for freezing rain ice accumulations is expected from
southern New Hampshire into eastern Maine with up to a tenth of an inch
accretion possible. The quick moving nature of the storm system will bring
an end to the snow for most of the region by early afternoon.

Across the northern Plains into Kansas and Missouri, high temperatures
today will average 15 to 20 degrees below average but warning is expected
for Sunday ahead of a cold front dropping down from Canada. Expect near to
slightly above average high temperatures for Sunday anywhere from the
central Plains to North Dakota and Montana. However, another strong cold
front along with light snow will surge through the Plains by Monday
morning bringing temperatures back below average. In fact, Monday's highs
will be colder than Saturday's forecast with temperatures ranging between
15 and 30 degrees below average.

Upper level ridging will dominate the pattern over the western U.S.
through the weekend allowing for dry conditions with temperatures above
average. A change in the pattern is anticipated starting Monday with the
arrival of a cold front to the west coast along with rain from northern
California into the Pacific Northwest.
