“January-like Cold” in Wake of Blizzard
“Frigid air will pour in across the Midwest, South and mid-Atlantic into Wednesday,” warns Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist with accuweather.com.
The “unusually cold air for late March” will challenge record low temperatures Wednesday morning in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
(Yes, I guess record cold could qualify as “unusually cold air.”)
Freezing temperatures will also dip into the Deep South Wednesday morning, including Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and northern Florida, causing damage to some tender plants and blossoms.
January-like cold will persist across the Midwest and East through the middle of this week, agrees Kristina Pydynowski, Senior Meteorologist with accuweather.com.
Temperatures will average 15-30 F below normal in many locations including North Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New York City and Boston.
The cold could force cancellation or postponement of some sporting events.
