The Coldest Day In US History Is Coming

This week’s weather will make the US shiver, literally. Forecasts warn for a ‘once-in-a-generation deep freeze’ with extreme conditions of arctic blasts causing the polar vortex (caused by a spinning pool of cold air), bringing temperatures as low as -64F.

The Midwestern states have declared a state of emergency for Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan. Weather officials in Iowa are warning citizens to “avoid taking deep breath, and minimize talking” when outside. Over 55 million people are forecast to suffer from below zero temperatures.

The National Weather Service (NWS) is warning that it is possible for people to get frostbite within 10 minutes of being outside. Weather predictions for Tuesday through Thursday say that temperatures can drop in Chicago, making it colder than temperatures in Antarctica. Wisconsin is forecasting for 2 feet of snow fall and Illinois is expected to get up to 6 inches. Even southern states are predicted to get snow in Georgia and Alabama.

As for President Donald Trump’s opinion on the matter, he tweeted, “What the hell is going on with Global Warming? Please come back fast, we need you!” Many weather officials were quick to explain how this is completely wrong stating.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration posted that forecasters are attributing this cold snap to a sudden warming above the North Pole that was caused by a blast of hot air from Morocco last month. Experts attributes the swift shift in climate change is human-induced through pollution.
