Another round of heavy snow, freezing rain and below average temperatures from the Plains to the Northeast, U.S.


An intensifying low pressure system is expected to bring another round of heavy snow and freezing rain across the Central Plains through the Great Lakes into the Northeast. Road conditions are likely to deteriorate quite rapidly even at lower-elevation areas as the storm brings a mix of ice and rain.

An area of low pressure is expected to continue to deepen Thursday, February 7, 2019, along the strong arctic front stretching from the Southern Plains into the Mid Mississippi Valley, the National Weather Service forecaster Oravec notes.

This low will be pushing northeastward into the Great Lakes region by Thursday evening and into eastern Canada Friday, February 8, supporting heavy snows from the Upper Mississippi Valley into the Upper Lakes and accumulating freezing rain from the Lower Great Lakes into Northern New England.

Blizzard conditions are possible today on the northwest portion of this storm from eastern portions of North Dakota, northeast South Dakota into western Minnesota. Blizzard warnings are currently in effect across these areas for the day on Thursday.

In the wake of the deepening low moving into the Great Lakes/Eastern Canada, the trailing arctic front will be pushing east from the Southern Plains into the Lower to Mid Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley Thursday and through the Eastern Seaboard on Friday.

This front will bring much colder air across these regions over the next 2 days, replacing the recent much above average temperatures with below average temperatures.

High temperatures will be 14 – 22 °C (25 – 40 °F) colder Friday than Thursday across the Southern Plains, Lower to Mid Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley and 10 – 14 °C (20 – 25 °F) colder Saturday than Friday along the east coast.

The coldest temperatures over the next few days will be across the Northern Plains where highs will stay below zero (°C / °F) into this weekend.

A secondary surge of arctic air will be pushing into the Northern Plains, Northern Rockies and portions of the Pacific Northwest late Friday into Sunday, February 10.

The large scale flow pattern supporting the secondary arctic surge into the Northern Plains will also support heavy snow potential into the Pacific Northwest late Friday into Saturday.

Snow levels will be falling as a strong mid to upper level closed low strengthens along the B.C./Washington State coastal area. This will support accumulating snow potential at lower elevations late Friday into Saturday across the Pacific Northwest.

  1. It looks like 52× 70 weeks of years or 3640 weeks of years to put a end to SINS and the RULERSHIPS of the kings that now rule did not end on January 21, 2019. THAT MIGHT MEAN that the dream of my wife is starting to look and to prove to be even moor true. So much FORE false research of a book of LIES called the bible HU” WE TRUE HEBREWS NEED TO GET BACK TO the old fashioned way and JUST BELEAVING IN THE ONLY WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS TO HIS TRUE CHILDREN and he did NOT say that it would be by a strang book called the bible, but by dreams. Thus the true year MUST BEGIN in the month of MAY 1st and ends April 30.
    THEREFORE the FIRST fruits of Gods chosen to be gathered together could be truly at that time that is called the month of birth and renewal, ” May”.
    Interesting MAY 24th 1967 was a full moon JUBILEE YEAR and my birthday. THERFORE 52 JUBILEE YEARS later would be May 21st and 22 of our HEBREW JUBILEE calendar, or on your fack CALENDER that we use now MAY 18TH and 19 at full moon, which is the time of the start of the true HEBREW harvest season ON this LAND that you took away from us that you now call the USA. And the TIME OF THE new covenant COULD BE on Sunday at 9:00pm Monday July 29th 2019 it looks like we will soon see? Won’t we?
    “ALL OF YOU KINGDOMS MIGHT WANT TO LOOK AT THIS interesting SCRIPTURE about this in your BIBLE book THAT you gave us. Some verses are true apparently and this looks like it to be one of them.
    ( Isaiah 44:1- 5 – 28 )
