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.

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.

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!"

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.

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

@ 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).

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!

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.

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 !

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
