Very cold air is pouring southward out of Canada into the Rocky Mountain states. It promises to be the coldest temperatures since the early part of December when temperatures dropped well below zero in all of Star Valley.
The following are two surface charts for both this morning and again Wednesday morning. Note that the cold high pressure over western Canada moves southward bringing with it the bitter cold air mass.
