Cold is coming... 1994 style

It is extremely cold right now.. the last time I remember cold this bad was in 1994 when I was 14 years old. I recall stories about rivers suddenly freezing and people suffering. That is back when CNN actually had news on .. Nonetheless, it’s 2014 and 20 years since that cold snap. But looking at this map you see, it may soon get pretty close to what was experience two decades back.  The image is from WeatherBELL’s Ryan Maue.. .. the red color reflects where all weather models are in agreement: It will be below 32 degrees. And in some cases much below 32..  My local forecast actually calls for a high on Monday of 30 some degrees—and the temperature will fall at night to negative 2. That is a 30+ drop in temperatures in just a few hours, and a flash freeze—something that the Midwest is going to experience this weekend as their temperatures go well below 0.  And get this: Hawaii’s high elevations are going to be under the freezing mark, too.  at this point, it’s fair to say that the entire United States from North to South and Alaska and Hawaii included—all 50 states—will be in a deep freeze by next week. That is astounding. Amazing. And freaking freezing.
