Re: Another polar Vortex is here..
Yeah. I'm seeing a nighttime low of 11F coming up this week. Daytime highs under 30F. Way, way below normal. The normal high/low in late January, in the coldest weeks of the year is 40F/23F.
A couple years ago, we had an early March low of 8F. It was the second coldest night of the year. You gotta keep your eyes open every March.
The thing with the Middle Atlantic is we really do have two seasons: A 5 month summer, a 5 month winter and a month separating each transition. But there is no extended spring or fall.
