GTFO Already: A Polar Vortex Is Coming This Weekend to Keep Winter Around Forever

What's that joke? "April showers bring May flowers, but what do May flowers bring?"


Unfortunately, there's no decent rhyme or joke about March winter hanging out for longer than it should like an unwelcome house guest, a bum on a barstool, or NBC's The Voice

So, nursery rhymes aside, we'll have to make due with just being upfront about bad news regarding the weather-- not like there's every anything good to say about the weather in New York City. 

Which, can we just be honest: why do we only ever talk about the weather as our go-to small talk when there's rarely ever anything good to say? 

One of life's unsolvable mysteries perhaps. At any rate, this week is going to be somewhat beautiful for the most part. Thursday's looking especially good with bright sunshine and temperatures that will flirt near the 70s. 


Then Friday will bring the rain, Saturday will stay a little warm, and then Sunday's going to calmly pop a nice little burst of arctic chill thanks to a polar vortex dawdling about the Great Lakes and Northeastern regions. 

"Temperatures in the swath of the arctic air will be 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit below normal, which will be the largest negative anomalies since Valentine's Day," AccuWeather Long-Range Meteorologist Joe Lundberg said. 

"When the wind is factored in, it will feel a whopping 40-60 degrees colder than it will late this week."

Awesome, right?

No. That sh*t sounds miserable. So, enjoy the sunshine while you can this week.
