Polar Vortex 2.0?

Tyler Durden's picture

With California experiencing emergency drought conditions and sun-glass-clad bronzed beauties driving their convertibles around in Lake Tahoe amid not an inch of real snow, the East Coast - just emerging from the cocoon following Polar Vortex 1.0 - is, as we warned, about to be confronted with another chilly blast of "Arctic Cold" weather with temperatures up to 25 degress below average and 8 inches of snow due for New York City tomorrow, and wind chills up to 40 below for the Upper Midwest On the bright side, it will be a BTFD opportunity for all those missed earnings expectations for Q1 retailers.


As MarketWatch notes:

New York City could get up to 8 inches on Tuesday and Tuesday night, while Washington D.C. could get up to 7 inches. In Chicago, up to 5 inches could fall overnight Monday and temperatures Tuesday could be as cold as 13 below zero, including wind chill



Via  National Weather Service,

A strong cold front will dive southward from the Plains and Midwest on Monday to the East Coast and Southeast on Tuesday. Bitter wind chills to 40 degrees below zero will impact the Upper Midwest. At the leading edge of the cold air, a winter storm is forecast to develop on Tuesday that will impact the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Coast with snow and blowing snow.


...Heavy snow for the Mid-Atlantic into Southern New England...

...Temperatures will be 10 to 25 degrees below average from the Mississippi Valley into the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic...

A front moving off the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Coast will develop a wave of low pressure over the Tennessee Valley that will intensify rapidly moving off the North Carolina Coast by Tuesday afternoon/evening.  The storm will continue to deepen Tuesday night into Wednesday morning moving just off the Mid-Atlantic Coast paralleling the Northeast Coast to just off Cape Cod by Wednesday morning.

The system will produce light snow over parts of the Middle Mississippi Valley by Monday evening expanding into parts of the Ohio Valley by early Tuesday morning.  As the storm moves into the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, moisture from the Atlantic will move inland aiding in the development of snow over the Mid-Atlantic to the Ohio Valley/Tennessee Valley.


The system's dynamics will increase, producing an area of moderate to heavy snow over parts of the Mid-Atlantic by Tuesday evening, moving into Southern New England and Coastal Northern New England by Wednesday morning.

We are still running the US Nationals at Squaw in March on man made.

The weather manipulation will continue until retail/employment manipulation and run-ons improve.

Why are there only 2 damn colors but different shades of each? I can't tell what is what. I assume they all mean cold.

It's the winter time and it gets cold.

Lol @ Polar vortex.  


Setting up a new AGW newspeak catch phrase.  "Why are we having record low temps in winter?"  


"Oh, it's because of the polar vortex!"

Interesting geographical correlation between COLD WEATHER and the location of some of the most COLD BLOODED sons of bitches in America.

Nat gas is going to wake up and go all sky rocket if this goes on much longer.   Propane is unavailable at any price in some parts of the midwest right now.

looks like Mormons got themselves a good piece of land in Utah with no natural disasters.

Don't forget the new pratice of naming winter storms. Do they have a name for the last ice age?

I want the salt contract. ..my roads are white. ...with salt...snow may come in 6 hours...may

Its so cold, that yesterday I saw a teenager with his pants pulled all the way up.

@ Gooch,

Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering DOES, NOT, EXIST.

Shut up and take the pill, and turn on some T.V. now, your Obama nurse will be here shortly...


I was gonna say something else, but I forgot what it was. The doc says something about nano-aluminiun and memory loss, but all that stuff is 'over my head' (so to speak).

Sunny and 75 in PHX bitchez!

Al ahole Gore when is that global warming shit coming to town?

Gets down to 38-40 in the morning, but otherwise it's been bright 72 summer days in the SF Bay.

We haven't had Fall yet!

NidStyles's picture

It's colder in SoCal than that, and PHX was seeing some serious cold in November, but that has pretty much gone away.

Nice and balmy here yesterday at 25 degrees and light snow falling.  Great day shooting at the range with my Mosin 91/30 billowing up clouds of snow from its muzzle blast!

It's also neat seeing the bullet tracks in the snow.

We have bulbs sprouting in the garden out back over here in the uncool east bay.

Twas a nipply 85 here on the SoCal coast over the weekend. My nectarine tree is already budding.

Los Angeles: 48F to 81F, partly cloudy.

I guess the NE didn't get the memo cancelling the cold weather...must have been a Warming nut intercepted it.  Hope the warming nuts gets frozen and stay inside for a long time.   Shrinkage !

Oh you can expect the Triple Digits as early as March in PHX. By Memorial Day you will be seeing those Hundred and Teens Temperatures. Enjoy your Blast Furnace as it bakes your Brains

74 in Dallas yesterday, great day for a bike ride.  Snow flakes expected Thu night, more than that expected near Austin.

Only way to say warm is to get baked.

And the only way to get baked is by bong rip.

But a healthy swig of Pisco keeps ya warm too.

You would not believe the number of Chemtrails that crisscrossed our sky up here on the mountain in Southwestern Virginia. Coincidence? With Polar Vortex 2.0 coming?

I have no idea what they are or why they are put up there...........but they sure as hell ain't contrails.

The skies over Tampa Bay looked like a perfectly drawn grid Friday of last week when the sky was otherwise "clear" so you could really see it.  They laid off on Saturday and it was hazy Sunday so who knows.  Grinding at the office today and didn't look out the window much.

You guys know I am a card carrying tin foil hat member....but even I have a hard time signing onto the idea that these fuckers are controlling the weather.

I know its hard to fathom...

But in the late 1800's Nikola Tesla was making the earth quake from his NYC apartment...


Imagine what 'they' have in 2014.

Experiment never reproduced succesfully. In scientific terms, that's as good as nothing.

AchtungAffen's picture

I bet you all know "liberation procedure" by Dr. Zamboni, who offered a cure to multiple sclerosis that had nothing to do with immune supression. Well, the experiment was repeated several times in several countries and the results were never reproduced. In scientific terms that's nothing. Even though I hate big pharma such as Merck taking over Serono and shit, science is science. I may be dumb as hell yet I still believe in the scientific method.

booboo's picture

right, beltching out "scientific" without the corresponding evidence, falsified math or just plain making shit up out of whole cloth with the word "scientific" on the heading is what makes up much of science today and has become more of a political sledgehammer to beat the masses into a mold. Much like Darwin's mentors who said he had left the rails of scientific methodology in coming to his theory, or his pigeon was still a pigeon or that the geological column did not support his theory but it did support the growing political movement. Forward.

A control freak is a control freak. They may not have the power yet, but it goes without saying that they're trying and will continue to try their damnedest, and anyway, the most important thing is to make the sheep BELIEVE they're in control.

We are talking about the Bush-Katrina weather machine, right?


From reading through posts for this article, I'm guessing that foil doesn't seem to give much protection from the extreme cold.

No, but I still salute him between periods, at hockey games.

When the scientific method is hijacked and its product is occulted it's called a Trade Secret.

The absence of confirmation is not the confirmation of absence.

+ 1. The shadows of confirmation appeared on 9/11 if you examine the facts with real science.

Some of what Tesla figured out wasn't re-discovered for decades... some still awaits rediscovery.

That is differrent Blotto, being that his device was based upon mechanical resonance.
If you want a glance into weather modification technologies that may exist, then check out this regarding the new and little known electromagnetics that was developed in secret.

Most of this info has yet to be confirmed through verification though, as most don't give a shit or simply aren't able to go that deep into the math and experiments.

And that matters how again, exactly?

And other countries now have their own versions...

Trying to control does not = control.  I don't begin to believe I know exactly what they are doing and why, but they sure as hell are doing something.  You don't need a tinfoil hat to look up and see it with your own eyes.
