Hey how’s that AGW-Climate Change-Global Warming (AKA: Weather) going for you, New Year’s Eve party-goers? Not so well. So sue Al Gore for ruining your New Year’s Eve festivities. After all, Al promised you that all the ice at the North Pole would be melted by today. Oh, and watch out for that pesky frostbite. You really do still want your ears, and your nose, and your fingers and toes, and other dangly pieces-parts, right?
One wonders whether the color coordination between the butt-freezing cold, purple polar vortex area and the fuzzy purple ‘Cookie Monster’ suit was intentional?
The Chicago Tribune reports, “As subzero cold hits, wind chill advisory for Wednesday night, Thursday morning“.
With overnight temperatures dropping well below zero, the National Weather
Service has issued a wind chill advisory for Wednesday night through Thursday morning.
The advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Wednesday until 10 a.m. Thursday. The weather service said wind chills could reach minus 30 in some areas. It warned people could suffer frostbite in as little as 30 minutes.

“The latest indications are the core of the coldest air associated with the polar vortex will track a bit farther north and east, compared to the outlook from last week,” according to AccuWeather Long-Range Meteorologist Edward Vallee.
The main thrust of cold air will aim at the Great Lakes, New England and the northern part of the mid-A
There is still a chance the arctic air may sneak farther south at the last minute, according to AccuWeather Long-Range Meteorologist Joe Lundberg.
It is possible for frost and freezing temperatures at night in parts of the central Plains, Tennessee Valley and southern Piedmont areas at the height of the cold air.
The potential for shocking cold and a hard, damaging freeze will exist from the Upper Midwest to the interior Northeast.
