Climate change enthusiasts claim the world is getting warmer and that we are all doomed if we don't elect Democrats, yet it appears that the coming "arctic blast" in the Midwest and Northeast will offer up the some record-low temperatures in some areas.
According to The Weather Channel, the current cold front hitting the Midwest and Northeast will bring with it "a blast of arctic air to portions of the northern tier beginning Wednesday, lasting into this weekend."
"The result will be the coldest air so far this season in parts of the Midwest and Northeast, including the possibility of record lows," reports TWC. "The blast of winterlike temperatures will first descend into the Northern Plains Wednesday. This will keep highs generally in the teens, 20s and 30s in parts of the upper Midwest and northern Plains through Thursday."
Anticipations for record lows are highest in the Northeast come Saturday morning. TWC provided the record lows from previous years to beat on Nov. 11:
- Allentown, Pennsylvania (19 degrees in 1956)
- Baltimore (21 degrees in 1973)
- Binghamton, New York (16 degrees in 1956)
- Boston (24 degrees in 1911)
- Buffalo, New York (19 degrees in 1957)
- Erie, Pennsylvania (24 degrees in 1933)
- New York City - Central Park (28 degrees in 1933)
- Pittsburgh (21 degrees in 1973)
- Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania (18 degrees in 1956)
- Syracuse, New York (19 degrees in 1957)
- Washington D.C. (26 degrees in 1973)
Such lows typically occur later in the year around New Year's Eve. By mid-November, the cold front is expected to subside to average temperatures.
The cold front in the Northeast follows the the warmest fall on record.
