Record-Breaking Cold Air Next Week?

The coldest air of the season will likely plunge in next week! If the data seen now becomes a reality, we could see records broken. The record for the coolest high temperature for next Thursday (11/13) is 37°, set in 1976. Right now, we have a forecast for a high of 39°. Let me show you what some of the latest data is showing for high temperatures on Thursday, First, the Euro model shows a high of only 38° for Jonesboro. Click image to enlarge:

Next is the GFS. It also shows a VERY cold day, with highs in the 30s. It shows a high of 39° in Jonesboro. Click image to enlarge:

This is very abnormal for mid-November and that's why we are going to be so close to breaking the record for the coolest high temperature for 11/13. Let's take a look back at when that record was set in 1976. Here's an old climate log from Jonesboro. Notice how cold it was!!! Click image to enlarge:
Not only was it COLD on 11/13/1976, but it snow on 11/14!!! Now, I do not see any accumulation in the forecast, BUT flurries can not be ruled out.

I'm not a fan of cold weather, so I hope this data changes! We still have a week for it to change.

Stay tuned!
