Piercing cold blast to feel subzero in central, northeastern US to kick off 2018
Cold air rivaling that of the past 100 years for early January will make it painful to be outdoors and may lead to damage in the central and northeastern United States.
AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures are projected to be below zero over much of the Northeast and well below zero in much of the Midwest.
People who rang in the new year in Times Square endured a temperature of 9 degrees Fahrenheit at midnight, which marked the second coldest ball drop on record in New York City. The coldest ball drop occurred a century ago with a midnight temperature of 1.
At least 30 states were experiencing below zero temperatures on New Year’s Day morning.
For the first day of 2018, RealFeel temperatures 5 to 20 degrees below zero will be common. In the northern tier, RealFeel temperatures may dip as low as 30 to 40 degrees below zero.
Most low temperature records from the northern and central Plains to the mid-Atlantic and New England are likely to remain in tact.
However, in terms of the level of cold, actual temperatures in many locations will be in the lower 5 percentile for all years on record for early January, according to the National Weather Service.
Standout years for record cold in the Northeast at this point in the season were in 1880-81 and 1917-18. In the Midwest, the years 1967-68 and 1973-74 left a mark with subzero F cold.
“While the level of cold will vary from one day to the next, indications are that the frigid weather will linger through the first week of January in the Central and Eastern states,”
A major storm will track close enough to the East Coast of the United States to bring snow to some areas and windy conditions to much of the Atlantic Seaboard later this week.
The storm will have both direct and indirect impacts from Florida to Maine and Atlantic Canada.
Arctic air will remain in place and will spread southward into Florida as the storm brews a few hundred miles offshore over the Atlantic Ocean and races northward on Wednesday and Thursday.
During this period, the storm may undergo rapid strengthening, sometimes referred to as bombogenesis.
At this time AccuWeather meteorologists believe the heaviest snow from the storm will fall on Maine and New Brunswick, Canada, where a blizzard is forecast to unfold.
A blizzard is a storm that produces snow or blowing snow with winds in excess of 35 mph and a visibility of one-quarter of a mile or less for at least three consecutive hours.
There is the potential for not only a foot (30 cm) or more of snow to fall, in Maine and New Brunswick, but also the risk of hurricane-force winds and frigid air at the same time. Tremendous blowing and drifting snow is likely and some communities may be isolated for several days in the wake of the storm. Some of these same communities may be without power.
The storm is likely to track close enough to the coast throw some moisture over land in the mid-Atlantic and the Southeast states. That moisture will be in the form of snow to some areas of the Atlantic coast from the northeastern corner of Florida to the coastal areas of the Carolinas and Massachusetts.
Whether a few flakes or several inches of snow fall will depend on the exact track of the storm and the how quickly moisture is thrown westward as the storm strengthens.
There is a chance of enough snow to make roads slippery in Wilmington, North Carolina; Atlantic City, New Jersey; New York City and Boston. A significant amount of wind-driven snow may fall on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
