It's due to the polar vortex that usually stays trapped in the Arctic, but has wandered down into Canada and the northeastern part of U.S.  It has pushed into some parts of the Midwest as Chicago may not see temps above 45 degrees, a new low for a high temp in May.  The Ohio and Tennessee valleys will receive light rain that shifts to the east turning into snow in the higher elevated parts of W. Virginia and Pennsylvania.  It is expected to be a record-setting event for this time of year.

2020 has been a awful year. In VA it's in the 50s then during the day, in the 60s or 70s.

Yes, I live in VA, and even though we did not get snow it was COLD, I went out to do some groceries and had to wear my jacket.  The year 2020 will go down on history no matter what.  Hopefully with get better, and lets pray that 2021 will be better

We are still under FREEZE warnings in the Midwest.  Much of Minnesota, Iowa, and South Dakota.

Hoping the crops that are just poking up won't get hurt.

It certainly is strange.
I live on the coast in Ma. Yesterday there was snow nearby and we had a windchill of 15 degrees. Felt like winter!
A little better today. Sunny and not as windy.  :rose: :rainbow: :peace: :wave:

Yep everything strange about this year.  Pestilence (murder hornet) multiple tornadoes of course the stupid coronovirus.  I don't know it is concerning though and I am not trying to be negative but I wonder if anything will ever get back to normal.

We had a freeze warning last night.  Instead of turning on AC we had to put heat on.  And this is May??

Yes this year has definitely been strange! Out of the normal for sure. The weather here has also been crazy. Super hot one day and the next day we were wearing our jackets again.

Here in Georgia we are experiencing the same old, same old. Not much of a winter and then an early summer. I know it used to get colder in the fall and winter here, because I've read articles that say they used to slaughter pigs in October when it got cold. But now it's still blazing hot in Georgia in October. The weather pattern has definitely changed over the years!  :peace: :heart:
