Weather boys are now saying that the arctic fronts that are diving south about Wednesday have the potential to send us record lows...Potentially as cold as -40...

I hate to hear that-but it is the only Canuck temperature I can easily convert without my cheat sheet :roll: ......

VERY COLD AIR ARRIVES BEHIND 2 ARCTIC COLD FRONTS. THE FIRST ARRIVES TUE NIGHT...THE 2ND THU MORN. RATHER LIMITED MOISTURE AND UPPER SUPPORT WITH THE FRONTS...BUT EACH FRONT APPEARS STRONG ENOUGH FOR A CHANCE OF A LITTLE LIGHT SNOW JUST BEHIND THE FRONTS. NOT TOO EXCITED ABOUT AMOUNTS WITH EITHER THOUGH. THEN A STRONG ARCTIC SURFACE HIGH MOVES DIRECTLY FROM NUNUVAT AND INTO MONTANA BY THU NIGHT AND FRIDAY BRINGING CLEARING SKIES. THICKNESSES FALL BELOW 500 DM BY THU. 00Z GFS JUST SLIGHTLY LESS COLD THAN PAST FEW RUNS...BUT STILL DROPS 850 MB TEMPS TO 30C IN OUR NORTH THU. WITH OTHER MODELS LOOKING SIMILAR...MAJOR LOWERING OF TEMPS IN ORDER. OPERATIONAL GFS IS THE COLDEST ENSEMBLE MEMBER...AND IT USUALLY PAYS TO GO LOWER THAN THAT WITH AN MAJOR ARCTIC OUTBREAK. POTENTIAL FOR -40F LOW IN OUR AREA...BUT TEMPERED BY THE FACT IT IS PAST PEAK OF THE COLD SEASON...AND GROUND IS CURRENTLY BARE OF SNOW...AND ALSO GREAT DOUBTS ABOUT WHAT NEW SNOW WE GET TO HAVE A BIG INFLUENCE.


This is almost hard to believe after todays weather---sunshine, no wind and temps in the mid 50's...I can sure see how some of the pioneers of old before scientific weather predictions could get caught out unprepared....They're now saying temps probably around 20 to 25 below for us Friday night- with the potential it could get to that 40 below.......BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

For us, we generally get one more cold snap before March. One year it snowed 13 inches here at the first part of March. In the mountains, they only got a couple of inches. It had been warm and mild and a lot of farmers had started field work. So, I am always wary of nice Feb Weather,

Makes Oct/Nov calving pretty attractive,
