US weather forecast predicts cold and possible snow for much of the country


Cold air is expected to descend over nearly all of the contiguous United States next week, with the National Weather Service predicting high temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below average for large swaths of the country.

Frost warnings were in effect Saturday morning for millions of people across the South, from Texas to Alabama.

Later next week, snowstorms could hit the eastern half of the United States and affect 2,000 miles stretching from Texas to New York, according to AccuWeather forecasts. Snow has already fallen in the north central United States earlier this week.

“With the cold air already in place, there is little doubt as to whether or not there will be snow that extends for a long distance next week,” the long-time meteorologist said. scope of AccuWeather, Joe Bauer.

Several inches of snowfall are possible around the Great Lakes in northern Michigan, according to the weather service.

With persistent cold air, snow could quickly pile in – but “thanks to the dry air and the forecasted rapid movement of the storm, a blockbuster snowstorm is not likely,” AccuWeather reports.
