    I've just seen the NWS info and was going to start a thread....you got here first!!. The charts really are off the wall for this, dont forget, its climate change, not just global warming!!

    The forecast where my daughter lived in Indiana has a max of -19C on Friday with high winds and snow which is extreme for there. On Thursday it starts off with rain at 2C and ends up at -21C with snow.

    However by the following Saturday temps are forecast to be up to +12 to+14C. I don't think that I would like these quick changes which can happen in some parts of the States.

    I was in upstate New York Christmas 2002. We had a storm come through on Boxing day which dumped a huge amount of snow and temps fell away very steeply after..-20  and lower at night. It was quite an eye opener, so this event is unprecedented.

    Wish we had extreme weather like this occasionally. 

    Astonishing drop in temperature, does this match the record drop in the temperatures from many years ago. I can't remember the date

    November 1911 from summer heat to winter freeze in hours , that's the benchmark 

    70F in 18-24 hours. This event won’t be a 70 degree drop as there isn’t summer heat values to begin with so less room to fall compared to 1911 But I do think the rate of fall on this event is quicker. Honestly didn’t think such a rate was possible, reminds me of the film “day after tomorrow” 😂

    Love that film and yes this event reminds me so much of it. 

    What's the UKs record temp drop or weather events that have had sudden temperature drops.

    Yup the cold Arctic air flooding out is pretty damn cold... minus 47oC this morning. Oh well at least tonight is only going to get down to minus 55oC wind chill. 😭🥶

    Could contain: Text, Invoice, Document
    Could contain: Page, Text, Poster, Advertisement

    Ive had about a 25oC change in temp in an hour or so and that was insane. ^ That is off the charts

    Although chances of a white Christmas this year almost non existant now still some interest around the world, particularly in the severe winter storm effecting the US in the coming days. This storm will undergo rapid cyclogenesis and will involve severe cold, winds and snowfall as far south as Florida and has the potential to be historic..

    Could contain: Nature, Outdoors, Plot, Chart, Hurricane, Storm

    Thought it would be good to have a specific thread to watch developments, from a meteorological view , general interest and if and how it could effect developments in the uk moving forward. Be good to see some videos as the storm impacts become apparent too.

    Here's a link to radar, you may have to navigate although I am attempting to save the right view. At the moment the low is just entering its explosive deepening phase, at 1003 mb near the triple border point of MI, IN and OH, heading northeast towards central Lake Huron. 

    http://www.weather.gc.ca/map_e.html?layers=radar&center=42.87164006%2C-80.43561532&zoom=5

    edit: it seems to open up as intended, not sure what time stamp you will see, if it auto-detects your time it may show GMT but my view of it has my local Pacific standard time which FYI is 8 hours behind z and 3 hours behind eastern or 2 behind central. You can get the image to animate (lower segment). It will probably keep updating so later readers will probably see this radar at almost the current time of their viewing.
