The Dangers of Cold Weather on Lung Health

This week has been quite an adventure, with wild weather all over the country and an apocalypse that brought in a large amount of rain. Things are expected to settle down thanks to a ridge of high pressure moving into the region and providing peace and tranquility. Britta Merwin FOX Weather meteorologist said the ridge of high pressure will be moving into the storm and create the conditions for a more tranquil environment. The high pressure could bring colder temperatures that drop into the subzero range across the northern Plains as well as the Intermountain West. The colder temperatures could be beneficial in certain places because of the mild winter. However, those colder temperatures will require us to take extra security measures.

1. What’s the temperature that is expected to fall to Intermountain West and Northern Plains?

Millions of Americans will see their temperatures drop next week as a result of an Arctic blast. Particularly, the Northern Plains and Intermountain West regions are predicted to feel the brunt of this blast. Temperatures are expected to drop to new minimums. The precise temperatures have yet to be determined, however the expectation is that temperatures in these regions will be drastically cooler than the typical temperatures observed this time of year. The sudden drop in temperatures is likely to result in a range of problems for these regions which include the increased chance of frostbite and hypothermia.

2. How does the coastal storm impacting forecasts for the coming days?

Recent information about the coast-to coast hurricane, dubbed “Everything Hurts In Your Lungs” Arctic blast is causing some controversy within the community of meteorologists. The massive storm is predicted to have a significant impact on millions of Americans during the coming week. Indeed, the National Weather Service has warned that this storm could cause precipitation and lower temperatures across the United States, with a couple of regions experiencing below freezing temperatures. The storm is likely to migrate out from the west coast of the continent, bringing with it an array of weather conditions, such as snow, sleet and heavy freezing rain, and strong winds.

3. A large high-pressure line behind the storm, what kind of conditions will we be able to anticipate?

The news that has emerged of an arctic blast which is predicted to affect millions Americans over the course of the next week should be a cause for concern. This blast is likely to occur in conjunction with the presence of high pressure. It could cause serious disrupting of weather patterns and more complex situations. For this scenario, high pressure creates an atmosphere that is heavier and more dense than the air around it. It forms a dome shape. The high-pressure dome can trap cold air and cause extreme temperatures. This extreme cold can cause several dangerous conditions including hypothermia, frostbite and even lead to the death of a person in extreme circumstances.

4. How long can the frigid temperatures continue?

The Arctic eruption that’s affecting millions of Americans will continue to affect millions of Americans through the next few days. The cause of this is an arctic vortex sending cold, dry air from the Arctic region down into the lower altitudes. The result is that temperatures drop drastically, leaving many sufferers feeling “everything can hurt their lungs”. The artic air masses is anticipated to be in place for several days, keeping temperatures significantly lower than average. The present crisis may be exacerbated by this weather event. To protect yourself and your family from severe cold, it is crucial to ensure temperatures remain low.
