ARCTIC AIR IS HERE TO STAY...
LIMITED COPIES LEFT:
A SECOND PRINTING OF TERRY'S NEW BOOK IS ON THE WAY...
NEW COPIES OF DERECHO 911, IOWA'S INLAND HURRICANE ARE AVAILABLE. Around Christmas we sold the last of the 1500 copies of our book on this historic thunderstorm, the most damaging in U.S. history. Due to continued demand we ordered a limited number of 250 for those of you interested in having the most authoritative account of this extreme event. Books are selling fast so don't miss this opportunity to own the weather story of a generation. You can get yours at derechobook.com
Arctic air has moved in and won't be leaving for a while. We can trace back the air mass that's overhead back to the Arctic Circle and practically to Russia!
That's what sent temperatures down to near record levels Sunday morning. And now Sunday afternoon will be TERRIBLY cold and may not make it above ZERO.
On top of that it will feel even colder with wind chills well below zero...
On top of all of that... there's the chance for some snow with a parade of clippers Sunday night through Monday night. Here's a look at the total accumulation on the GFS:
Some differences in totals and placement, but does appear that southern Iowa and northern Missouri have the higher totals around. Generally best chances for accumulating snow will be south of Highway 20 the next few days.
However, EVERYONE will be dealing with the cold. You can watch the arctic air sit overhead for the next seven days --
Looks like a potentially harsher shot of arctic air arrives next weekend too. So buckle up and stay layered up because the arctic air isn't leaving anytime soon!
