Deadly Frigid Cold Over U.S. May Last For Weeks

Unusually frigid cold weather, often below zero, has attacked parts of the United States and Europe, and it may last for weeks.  Further, these low temperatures in the U.S. northeast and Midwest may soon include freezing snow.

Weather experts from Climate Central claim this horrid weather first formed in outer space:  “An unusual event playing out high in the atmosphere above the Arctic Circle is setting the stage for what could be weeks upon weeks of frigid cold across wide swaths of the U.S., having already helped to bring cold and snowy weather to parts of Europe.”

Meteorologists refer to this anomaly as a “sudden stratospheric warming event.”  They theorize that these temperatures congealed in the high heavens earlier this month, but they have just now reached earth.

    In ‘Nasty Cold Wave Heading for Part of the U.S.,’ AccuWeather meteorologist Alex Sosnowski warns:  “The stratosphere is located between 6 miles and 30 miles above the ground. Often when this occurs, it forces cold air to build in the lowest layer of the atmosphere then to drive southward . . .

“Discharges of the cold air can continue for weeks and shift from one part of the continent to another over time. . . . Because of the time of year, some locations (the northern part of the Great Basin and northern New England) may hold on to the cold they have now due to long nights, light winds and weak sunshine. However, most locations will experience an upswing in temperature for at least a several-day period.”

Extinction Protocol enjoins: “The ongoing event favors colder and possibly stormier weather for as long as four to eight weeks after the event, meaning that after a mild start to the winter, the rest of this month and February could bring the coldest weather of the winter season to parts of the U.S., along with a heightened chance of snow.”

Expert Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson throws in the midst of these worrisome forecasts:  “Initially, the cold may seem to be run-of-the-mill or even delayed, but once the cold air engine starts, it may run for quite a while with progressively colder and colder waves of air.”

One must wonder about the homeless people in our nation, and the victims of Hurricane Sandy who lived so long without electricity or heat.  Most shelters allow these unfortunate ones only to spend the night.  But at morning light they must leave.  Oh pray for the destitute in our nation and in Europe who struggle to exist in such excruciating weather.

Lets us follow instructions in Christian messages and repent asking God to take such weather back into the upper atmosphere:  “He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?  He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, [and] the waters flow (Psalm 147: 17 – 18).
