Major Changes Ahead

A major change in the weather is coming. A strong cold front is forecast to move south across the northern United States around mid-week, with unseasonably cold Arctic air moving in behind it. This will likely keep high temperatures in the 40s on Thursday and possibly Friday, as low temperatures tumble into the 20s. The first snowflakes of the season will also be possible late Wednesday. It will be very interesting to see how this situation plays out, as there are indications in the computer models that this could be a record-breaking event. A few of the models are even showing solutions that are nearly impossible to achieve for a storm system this time of year (i.e. anomalously cold temperatures and low pressures). This could be a very November-like storm, and is definitely something to keep an eye on.
