Something Winter This Way Comes? Well, At Least It’ll Feel More Like It

All weekend long meteorologists here at ImpactWeather have been studying constantly updated models, some of which are trending in agreement (a meteorological phrase I’m not technically certified to use) towards a sharper dip in temps across much of the U.S. next week.  Though not yet actually winter, already we’re seeing this season play out as […]
