We had some record lows here in Atlanta and we weren’t the only ones.
CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago plunged into a record-breaking freeze Tuesday with single-digit temperatures and below-zero wind chills.
The official low for Tuesday at O’Hare Airport was 7 degrees, breaking the previous record low for November 12 of 8 degrees – the coldest temperature ever recorded so early in the season. A record low temperature was also set on Monday, with temperatures dipping to 13 degrees.
Two records for cold temperatures were set overnight while Cincinnati was sleeping.
Before midnight, the temperature dipped to 12 degrees, setting a new record low for Nov. 12. Then, after midnight temperatures hit 13 degrees, breaking the record low for Wednesday.
The temperature continues to fall Wednesday morning, dipping to 11 degrees at CVG, making it the coldest morning for mid-November since the 1950s. If the low hits 9 degrees, it will be the earliest we’ve dipped to single digits since 1880.
“Hundreds of cold temperature records have been set over the last few days, including some dating back over a century to 1911,” Hennen said. The freezing temperatures made it as far south as Houston, New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle, he said.
Much of the eastern half of the country will continue below normal temperature-wise through the weekend, but each day will be slightly warmer.
By Thursday morning, the Mid-Atlantic region to Maine could suffer record-low temps, CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.
The NWS compared this Arctic outbreak to the 1911 “Blue Norther.” Within a day, record-breaking cold temps in the 20s were followed by record-warm temperatures near 80 degrees for much of the Plains to the East Coast.
While this week’s temperatures will rise across much of the country Thursday, they’ll still be 10 to 20 degrees below average, Guy said.
Somehow this record cold will be blamed on
global warming climate change. Maybe someone could ‘splain it to me. Robin? Anyone.
I’m also waiting for the announcement that this was the warmest November evah and that so far 2019 has been the warmest year evah.
global warming climate change news, the Gretard has hitched a ride to Spain on another yacht.
Wasn’t she just in California? How did she get back to the East Coast. Here’s how.
Opposed to the horrific gas guzzlers that are transatlantic jet liners, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in the US via a zero-emission sailboat.
Just weeks later, after completely decimating the hypocrisy of the UN climate community and burning holes in the back of President Trump with her eyes, Thunberg is off again.
This time she is sailing away on a hot air balloon powered only by her fiery breath.
Granted, this vessel is not zero-emissions like her sailboat. This Greta-breath balloon does create CO2, but not more than when the 16-year-old laid waste to the UN Panel on Climate Hyperbole earlier this week.
