If You Thought The December Chill Was Bad, There’s Something Way Worse On The Horizon…

Siberia is currently experiencing a harsh chill due to an arctic weather blast, which some forecasts predict may reach North America in a week or two.

According to The Washington Post, the Siberian village of Zhilinda recorded a January low on Tuesday of 79.8 degrees below zero.

The figure was the lowest for Siberia since 2002, and it was joined by readings from other meteorological stations that were 76 or even lower below zero.

Climate researcher Maximiliano Herrera says temperatures are approaching all-time records and are around 50 degrees Fahrenheit below normal.

The lowest temperature ever recorded in Zhilinda was 82.3 below zero. The coldest temperature ever recorded in Russia was 89.9 degrees below zero in February 1933.

The town’s temperature hasn’t risen above 58 degrees below zero in recent days.

A forecaster stated last month that Siberian freezes frequently indicate that America will be targeted next.

According to AccuWeather, colder weather will arrive in North America on Saturday, January 21, and temperatures will continue to drop significantly on Monday, January 23.

According to AccuWeather’s main long-range forecaster, Paul Pastelok, “the connection of cold air from Siberia to western North America will travel east later this month, first arriving in the Rockies and Plains then fracturing into fragments as it comes east.”

Buffalo experienced a record-breaking snowfall during the cold wave in December, but forecasters warned it is too early to predict what the next wave of cold would bring.

As another storm later in the month could generate more widespread wintry precipitation if enough cold air is in place, “this storm will have to be observed closely to see how much cold air can penetrate behind it,” AccuWeather meteorologist Brandon Buckingham said.

The polar vortex, a strong current of arctic air from the north, has kept the chilly Arctic air to the north for the majority of the winter, according to The Washington Post. That travels south as the colder air moves north.
