The US is expecting a massive surge of cold air from the north next week. The Climate Prediction Center issued their 6-10 day outlook, and the map shows below average temperatures all next week, aside from California and parts of the American West, which will likely see above average temperatures.
However, this year, the Midwest will experiences temperatures about 80% below the region’s average.
“The risks with this will be very cold temperatures, which will affect vulnerable populations,” said Currently’s Chief Meteorologist Megan Montero. “The best thing to do ahead of a blast of cold like this one is to protect the 4 P's. Do things to protect pets, pipes, plants and people.”
