Weekends Strong Cold Front Continues To Sweep Into The Eastern US.

 

A strong cold front continues to advance through the Midwest and into the eastern US this Monday morning.  There isn’t much precipitation along the front, but it is bringing a significant cool down with some locations observing a greater than 40F cool down compared to this time yesterday.  There will be some light snow across portions of the Midwest over the coming few days, but amounts won’t be more than a few inches.   Additional reinforcing shots of cold air are expected over the coming week, which will keep the Midwest and Northeast with below normal temperatures, leading to high nat gas and heating demand.

 

 

24 hour temperature changes from Monday morning compared to Sunday morning.  A very strong cold front is ushering 30-45F temperature drops across the Midwest, which will push into the eastern US today. Still mild over much of the western US.
