Brrrrrr! Get Ready For Frigid Temps
Remember the polar vortex that hit last winter? It's back -- and it will open for arctic air to plunge over the most of the United States as the new week progresses. That's according to AccuWeather.com.
Today's high temperature in Dorchester is forecast to hit 65 degrees. By mid-week, high temperatures won't be half that.
This week, the harshest cold air will encompass the northern Rockies and Plains. The arctic blast will drop into the northern Rockies on Monday, accompanied by a snowstorm on its leading edge, then will spread across the Northwest and Plains through Wednesday.
Many communities across the northern Rockies and Plains will experience a 20- to 40-degree drop in high temperatures from one day to the next.
In Dorchester, the cold will arrive sometime late Monday or early Tuesday, with Tuesday's high reaching 35 degrees. We won't see high temperatures much beyond 30 degrees Wednesday and Thursday.
Next weekend won't be too much better, with highs in the upper 30s -- and chances of snow!
