The robust chilly entrance representing the vanguard of a widespread Arctic air mass handed by the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC hall early this morning and temperatures have fallen into the 30’s from early day highs.  Precipitation is being enhanced within the chilly air behind the entrance as a robust jet streak aloft generates upward movement within the I-95 hall.  Consequently, a changeover to snow is probably going in the course of the mid-day and early afternoon hours within the instant DC-to-Philly-to-NYC hall and this changeover to snow is probably going all the way in which to coastal New Jersey and Delmarva.  Some spots may obtain small snow accumulations and as temperatures drop to close freezing later within the day, look ahead to the potential for “black ice” on some roadways.  Precipitation winds down later at present and the chilly will grow to be the principle story with document low temperatures in quite a few Mid-Atlantic/NE US areas by early tomorrow. Widespread information had been set earlier at present from Texas to the Nice Lakes with some stations recording their lowest temperature ever for the month of November and we’re not even on the midway level.

Typically instances the passage of a frontal system indicators the tip of the precipitation, however that’s not the case at present as an upper-level jet streak is enhancing upward movement and serving to to generate some post-frontal precipitation within the I-95 hall.  As temperatures proceed to drop, the rain is altering over to snow in lots of areas and this changeover risk will prolong all the way in which to the east coast over the subsequent couple of hours.  Small snow accumulations are potential and there’s the potential for some “black ice” to type on the roadways later at present as temperatures slide in the direction of the freezing mark.

A widespread area of the nation skilled each day document or close to document lows this morning and, in some instances, the bottom temperature ever recorded for the month of November occurred which is especially spectacular since we haven’t even reached the mid-way level of the month.  This space of document or close to document lows will shift to the Mid-Atlantic/NE US by early tomorrow morning as many low temperature information are properly inside attain.  For instance, at Philly Int’l Airport (PHL), the document low for November 13th (Wednesday) is 24 levels and that is actually inside attain and lots of suburban areas alongside the I-95 hall will drop to the teenagers within the in a single day hours.  Along with the potential for in a single day low temperature information, excessive temperatures on Wednesday will likely be confined to the low-to-mid 30’s alongside the I-95 hall and these could become the “lowest” excessive temperatures ever recorded for the date of November 13th.

Among the very spectacular climate observations from this morning embrace month-to-month temperature information at Clinton, Oklahoma (12 levels), Altus AFB, Oklahoma (13 levels), Mt. Vernon, Illinois (10 levels), and Fort Value, Texas (20 levels).  That is particularly spectacular given the truth that we haven’t even reached mid-month and most month-to-month information are set close to the tip of the given month. As well as, the each day document set this morning at Indianapolis, Indiana of eight levels shatters the prior document set 108 years in the past and Chicago, Illinois dropped to a document of seven levels – each of those are the bottom temperatures ever for thus early within the season. In Detroit, Michigan, the Arctic blast resulted in practically 10 inches of snow…probably the most ever there for the month of November. Lastly, and to not be outdone, it dropped all the way in which right down to 7 levels in Amarillo, Texas earlier at present.
