Brace Yourself: The Polar Vortex is Coming Back
Remember bone-chilling temperatures that closed schools, and made us feel like we were permanently stuck in the Michigan version of 'Frozen' last winter? Our old friend the Polar Vortex plans to make a return visit this year.
According to AccuWeather:
Cold air will surge into the Northeast in late November, but the brunt of the season will hold off until January and February. The polar vortex, the culprit responsible for several days of below-zero temperatures last year, will slip down into the region from time to time, delivering blasts of arctic air.
"I think, primarily, we'll see that happening in mid-January into February but again, it's not going to be the same type of situation as we saw last year, not as persistent," AccuWeather.com Expert Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said.
