A Springtime Polar Vortex Is Headed For Virginia And Temperatures Will Plummet To A Record-Breaking Low
Unfortunately, the arrival of springtime here in Virginia doesn’t guarantee that the weather will follow suit. Weather forecasts indicate that the East Coast will soon see a record-breaking cold front for the month of May. States in New England could even experience heavy snowfall. Beginning on Friday, May 8th, a Northeastern-bound storm will clash with Arctic air in a phenomenon known as a polar vortex. Virginia is likely to experience lots of rain along with near-freezing temperatures and in some areas, a dusting of snow.
