A blast of arctic weather has Siberia in a deep freeze that some forecasters say could come to North America within a week or so.
The Siberian town of Zhilinda hit a low of 79.8 degrees below zero Fahrenheit Tuesday, setting a record for January, according to The Washington Post.
The reading was Siberia’s lowest temperature since 2002 and was accompanied by other weather stations that show readings of 76 degrees below zero or even lower.
Temperatures are about 50 degrees Fahrenheit below normal and closing in on all-time records, according to climate expert Maximiliano Herrera.
Zhilinda’s all-time low was was 82.3 degrees below zero. Russia’s record low is 89.9 degrees below zero, which was set in February 1933.
Last month, one forecaster noted that Siberian freezes are often a signal that America will be hit next.
“The connection of cold air from Siberia to western North America will spread east later this month, first arriving in the Rockies and Plains then breaking into pieces as it comes east,” said Paul Pastelok, AccuWeather’s lead long-range forecaster.
The Post explained that for most of the winter, the polar vortex, frigid air from the north, has been strong, keeping the cold Arctic air to the north. If that weakens, the colder air moves south. Source
Brethren, we must pray for everyone if this front comes through the U.S. These are deadly temps and it only takes about 10 minutes for exposed skin to get frostbite. Hypothermia is a danger for the very young and very old!
COME LORD JESUS!!
