Strong Cold Front Coming
A strong cold front that brought bitterly cold temperatures to the Midwest and much of the Plains Monday is headed our way today. Check out the current (6 a.m. ET) temperatures for the eastern half of the U.S.:This cold front is causing about a 20 to 30-degree drop in the midsection of the country, and will sweep through Central Virginia late Tuesday afternoon, putting an end to our relatively mild temperatures expected this afternoon (around 60 degrees!). Highs the rest of this week will remain in the mid-40's, which is slightly below-average for mid-December.
