What you need to know, currently.
The eastern two-thirds of the US will be sent into a deep freeze, just days before Christmas, due to a blast of extremely cold air.
This bitter wind challenges records that have stood since the 1980s and stress energy grids, as subzero temperatures make their way from the northern Rockies to the East.
The cold will come to North America in two waves. The northern Rockies and northern Plains will face the brunt of the blast, though it will push its way to the south and east in the days leading up to the holiday. Then, the cold will head to the central and southern Plains.
Similar cold air in February 2021 stressed energy grids across the South, most notably in Texas, which withstood a multi-day power grid failure. As the cold air blows in, the energy demand increases across the nation, as everyone is trying to heat their homes and workplaces, causing the grid failure. Near-freezing temperatures also threaten crops in southern Texas.
