RECORD LATE-SEASON FREEZE INTENSIFIES ACROSS NORTH AMERICA…
As the jet stream plunges southwards, out-of-season cold is being funneled deep into the CONUS: Historic April blizzards are raging over the Dakotas, while potentially record-breaking chills are enveloping 85% of the North American continent.

Blizzard Warnings currently extend across parts of central and eastern North Dakota and northwestern South Dakota into eastern Montana; with Winter Storm Warnings in effect elsewhere, namely across the Rockies and into the Pacific Northwest.
Towns and cities across the continent are expected to see record-cold temperatures this week — hundreds of benchmarks are forecast to fall due to sheer size and intensity of descending polar air mass:

Areas of the Pacific Northwest should brace for temperatures 24C below the norm for the time of year. Fox Weather was expecting a myriad of ‘record cold highs’ to tumble Tuesday–including those visualized below:

As the cold shifts eastwards throughout the week, hundreds of additional low temperature benchmarks are forecast to fall–from Alberta to Alabama.

The snow will also prove record-breaking — below are the projected totals for the next 7-days:

Might be time to start looking at what the “other” scientists have been saying for the past two years. Maybe they’re right and the solar activity or lack of can make a huge impact on the planet. Cycles can’t be ignored especially if you’re in the middle of a cold one. The Global Warming nuts might not agree and time will tell which group of scientists we should be listening to. I’ve seen lots of cool Aprils and even late snow so I’m not in a panic but as the days go by it might be worth mentioning the cooler than normal weather. It’s happened before and it just might be happening again.
