HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Temperatures across the western half of the nation are plunging as much as 40 degrees below normal as an Arctic cold-air mass moves south.
An arctic air mass continues to move southward across the western third of the country today, while a coastal storm has triggered gale warnings across the northern portion of the Eastern Seaboard.
In the East, a strong cold front pushed offshore and into the Atlantic Ocean. A broad ridge of high pressure built in behind this system, which pushes cold air in from Canada. This cold air spread across the Great Lakes, Northeast, Eastern Valleys, and reached the Gulf states. High temperatures ranged in the 40s and 50s across the Southeast, with overnight low temperatures in the 30s. These conditions are 10 to 15 degrees below normal for this time of year. Frost and freeze advisories remained in effect from eastern Texas through Georgia and the panhandle of Florida. Temperatures in the North started to recover, with highs in the 40s and 50s for the Upper Midwest, but the Northeast remained in the 30s on Wednesday, with early morning low temperatures in the teens. Mt. Washington, N. H., reported a low temperature of -4 degrees early on Wednesday.
A broad low pressure system moved over the north-central U.S. and brought cold temperatures in from Canada. This allowed for snow showers to spread from the Dakotas toward the Great Lakes, with periods of mixed rain and snow showers, as well as freezing rain showers, to develop along the eastern edge of this system as it approached the Great Lakes. Snowfall accumulation for Wednesday surpassed 10 inches by midday on Wednesday. Holyoke, Minn., reported a midday total of 13.7 inches of snow and 14.9 inches reported just northeast of Finland, Minn. Most of the heavy snowfall remained north of the Minneapolis Metropolitan area, with reports of 4.2 inches of snow at Maple Grove, Minn., and 3 inches reported at Minnetonka, Minn. The back side of this system brought cold arctic air into the Western states with overnight low temperatures well below zero. The national low was reported at Driggs, Idaho with an overnight low of 23 degrees below zero, while many locations in Wyoming and Montana with lows in the negative teens.
A cold frontal boundary moved across the Eastern Seaboard on Wednesday, while a separate cold front moved southward over the Intermountain West and northern Plains.
