Cold Air Dam Leaking. Will It Break?
All the cold air has been bottled up into western Canada and Alaska over the last several weeks. A flow off the Pacific has been damming that cold air, but there are changes at last!
We're already seeing small pieces of cold air drain into the United States and that dam is leaking. Will it completely break and flood the United States with arctic air? If you're a cold air lover, it looks promising for bigger chunks of that cold air to dive south starting next week and especially the end of the month. Will the cold air intrusions lock and hold or will it be in and out causing a roller coaster in temperatures? That remains to be seen, but at least we're seeing cold air on the playing field. Does that mean snow? It's impossible to predict that far out, but at least 1 necessary ingredient (cold) will be available.
