HUGE Polar Vortex to shove record-breaking cold and snow as far south as the Mexican border – and beyond!
Welcome to the new Grand Solar Minimum!
Where I live, south of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, temperatures are forecast to drop to a record-breaking one degree Fahrenheit (-17.22C) on Sunday night, with wind chills as low as -15 F (-26.11C).
If you can’t quite make out the words in the above image from the National Weather Service, they read:
A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect from late Saturday night through Monday afternoon for the entire region. 3-8 inches of snow accumulations are possible. Heavy snow and blowing snow are possible with this event. Temperatures will be bitterly cold, with near-blizzard conditions are possible. Hazardous travel is likely due to icy bridges and roadways, however travel will become impossible and possibly life-threatening. Wind chills as low as -15 F could induce hypothermia. Continue to monitor any updates to the forecast in the coming days.
