Huge swaths of the United States are bracing for an arctic blast in the coming days; bringing record cold daily temperatures this early in the season and possible snowstorms for New York City ahead of Thanksgiving.
“This is not the norm by any means,” warned Accuweather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. “This is about as cold as it gets for this time of year.”
“Tomorrow’s one of those days where you dress for the evening hours, not the morning hours,” Kines added. “Don’t be fooled. It’s not out of the question that before the precipitation ends, it will end as a little bit of snow. It won’t accumulate, but it will be a signal that this next air mass that comes in means business.”
“Tuesday night, temperatures in the city could dip into the low 20s — potentially breaking a record low of 22 set on that day in 1873,” reports the New York Post.

“148 daily record lows are currently forecast to be broken, tied, or come within 1 degree between Tuesday and Thursday this week,” warned the National Weather Service.
“You throw in the wind and it’s going to feel like the teens out there,” Kines said.

BRAIN FREEZE: Denver Sees BIGGEST MAY Snowstorm in 44 YEARS, Record Cold Temperatures
Vast stretches of Colorado are bracing for the biggest late-may snowstorm on record and record cold temperatures; seeing more than 3.4 inches of snow and moving upwards towards a previous high set back in 1975.
“As of 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Denver had officially received 3.4 inches of snow. That’s the most snow measured this late in the season since May 29, 1975 when 5.6 inches hit the city,” reports CBS Denver.
“In addition to the snow, Denver tied the record low temperature for May 21 when the official thermometer for the city dropped to 31 degrees Tuesday morning. It was previously 31 degrees on this date in 2001 when 1 inch of snow fell,” adds the website.
This was the scene east of the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels on I-70 this afternoon as snow caused multiple cars to crash.

The sudden deep freeze is similar to another major snowstorm that slammed the Midwest in April.
“A blizzard my friends, in April, it’s happening across portions of South Dakota up towards Nebraska and then into Wisconsin,” said Fox News Senior Meteorologist. “We could see over a foot of snow and windy conditions and the potential for flooding ahead of this, some ice as well.”
The storm comes on the heels of massive flooding across parts of Nebraska and beyond and could contribute to ongoing reconstruction efforts in the region.
10 YEARS LEFT? Second Winter Storm Slams Colorado, Temperatures Reach Record Cold
A second arctic front sent temperatures below zero degrees in Denver, Colorado Tuesday; smashing records and bringing inches of snow as forecasters urge residents to prepare for a long and potentially severe winter.
“The second arctic front to slam into Colorado in just two days arrived earlier than expected Tuesday. The accelerated arrival means snow will fall for the morning commute and should continue through the evening commute as well,” reports CBS Denver.
“Several records are expected to be broken including a record low for October 30 Wednesday morning and a new record low for the entire month of October on Thursday when Denver drops below zero,” adds the website.
