Another arctic blast headed south this weekend

GLASGOW — AccuWeather.com reports the calendar says it's now spring, but winter refuses to loosen its grip on the Midwest and Northeast.

This will certainly become apparent this weekend and into next week as a blast of arctic air pours southward out of Canada.

The first three weeks of March have been unusually cold across much of the eastern half of the United States, especially in the Northern states.

Most locations across the Great Lakes, for example, are running 7-9 degrees Fahrenheit below average through the first 20 days of the month. Most locations in the Northeast have experienced temperatures on average 5-8 degrees Fahrenheit below normal through the same period.

The arctic air will move into the Midwest and Great Lakes during the first half of this weekend behind a cold front. Gusty winds behind the front will make it feel even colder.

This front will push through the Northeast late this weekend. The bitter cold will remain in place through the middle of next week.

An Accuweather forecast map shows the blast of cold air reaching Kentucky Sunday into Monday.

This new blast of arctic air, along with other factors, could potentially lead to the development of a large snowstorm along the Atlantic Seaboard by the middle of next week.
