The next seven to ten days will be nasty. That is the best way to describe it. It will turn cold across most of the country with only South Florida and the Desert Southwest escaping Old Man Winter's icy grip. Some of the coldest air in North America will be over the north-central states early next week, producing lows below zero. So much for global warming. The perimeter of the cold will support an active storm track. The first will occur in the East late Sunday night and Monday. Later in the week, another storm may slip southward along the east slopes of the Rockies and hook up with a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. That would open the door for another big weather event in the eastern part of the country by next weekend. A lot of weather will occur next week, and it will be the most weather drama we have witnessed since the heart of the hurricane season. Story by AccuWeather.com expert senior meteorologist John Kocet.
