Polar Vortex To Rip Through New York State
After a few nice days last week, New York State has gone back to a more seasonable weather mode lately, but things are about to get a whole lot colder and icky over the next week or so.
Despite the calendar saying it's spring, Mother Nature still wants Old Man Winter to have a spot at the table.
Things will turn very cold this Friday into Saturday for New York State, according to AccuWeather.
A polar vortex will cut through the Great Lakes, Midwest and Northeast this weekend and into early next week. The colder air will reach as far as Kentucky and Tennessee, as temps there will only reach the 50's.
As for New York State, we can expect temps to be in the 30's with both rain and snow impacting travel this weekend.
Sunday appears to be the snowiest day, with a few inches of snow possible in some areas and a bitter wind chill that will make it feel like early February, instead of the end of March.
Temperatures will be 10-30 degrees below normal for this time of year and the cold streak won't end until the middle of next week.
Forecasters also say that it looks like another blast of cold air could come into early April, after a brief warm up to close out March. We likely won't see normal April-like temps to stay for good until mid-April.
Make sure the winter boots are handy and the snow scrappers are at arm's length. Winter weather will be the story for the next few days.
