Re: 25 year zone-defining cold snap in some of Mid-south
Your 23/7 is uncannily like my annual expectation for the coldest winter day.
When you're going through it, remind yourself that this is what Jim in Delaware deals with every year.
SO FAR, and those are the operative words - so far - we (the Mid-Atlantic) have been spared the wrath of the Arctic airmass now plaguing the nation, nor do I really see anything unusual in the 7-day. Worst morning low is 23F in the coming week.
