Noticeably colder air is in place to start this week across the majority of the Midwest and East in the wake of the impactful past weekend storm, but temperatures still remain several degrees above average by midwinter standards. However, by the end of this workweek frigid arctic air currently draining into the northern U.S. between the Pacific Northwest and northern Plains at 15°-30° below average below average intensity, will flood the majority of the Midwest, South, and East at near seasonal strength. More importantly all computer model forecasts agree the 1st widespread below average temperatures of winter will quickly follow a significant late week winter storm into the East early in the 6-10 day period. Magnitude and areal extent of below average temperatures east of the Rockies are near certain to increase during the 11-15 day period, while the West progressively warms (and dries) through late January. Forecasts valid early February are even colder across the Eastern half of the country according to consistent 30-day MWA ensemble and CFSv2 forecasts, adding confidence to an extreme cold and stormy end to winter and start to spring (March).
