Cold Shot Over Northeast

Written by on March 3, 2017 in NatGasWeather - No comments

Friday, March 3: A strong cold blast will finally impact the northeastern US today and Saturday, while tapping a rather impressive shot of Canadian air with polar origins. It’s close to an impressive cold outbreak if it wasn’t for the core of the most extreme Arctic air only being able to provide a glancing blow, but will still drive strong heating demand as overnight lows drop into the teens to locally 0°F. Although, like most instance this winter, cold conditions won’t last long as strong high pressure retakes ground east of the Rockies Sunday through the middle of next week where temperatures will again warm into the 60s to 80s, 15 to 30°F above normal.
