Record-setting Arctic outbreak despite global warming (revised)

“One of the coldest arctic air masses in nearly 30 years” is likely to hit the Plains and Midwest this weekend, placing some all-time cold records in jeopardy,say forecasters.

States such as Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin will see lows in the minus teens and minus 20s F (-23 to -33 C). Add sub-zero winds to the mix and it could feel more like the minus 50s and minus 60s, meteorologists warn.

Well, thank our carbon emissions for global warming - imagine how cold it would have been without it!
