While we are basking in a warm winter in California, with all the TV talking heads worrying if we will see any snow at all, much of the nation is getting frost bite. Soon it will be our turn.
According to NOAA:
A blast of cold arctic air swept over the U.S. starting on New Year’s Day and has kept a large part of the county in sub-freezing temperatures. Plotted on this image in blue, using data from the NOAA North American Model, are areas of the U.S. predicted to have temperatures at some point in the day that are below freezing (32° F) on January 4, 2012.
