Ok so we get this brief mild spell followed by another Polar Arctic Vortex , and extreme storm track . It seems as if winter keeps playing the broken record over and over .. One thing will need to watch besides the cold air is plenty of opportunities for snowstorms .. And being this far ahead into winter , we usually get our biggest storms . So no panic , but be ready for rapidly changing weather conditions … Here’s a look at what’s in store for the next two weeks …..
Yup frigid temps ! And it could shunt the storm track a bit further south of New England ! One will have to watch …I know your all ready for Spring as I am .. So let’s be patient and hope for the best …:) Thanks for viewing ..
