Much of the United States is under a spell of harshly cold weather, and, according to forecasters, it does not appear to be ending anytime soon.  In fact, another wave of Arctic air, that could be colder than the current one, is set to hit the eastern two-thirds of the country starting on Wednesday.  It’s great news for ski resorts in West Virginia and North Carolina, but not for crop growers in Florida, as hard freeze warnings are in effect and the state is going to see its coldest stretch in 15-25 years.  In addition, Floridians are having trouble finding warm clothes, as most major retailers are out of coats, hats, and gloves.  Check out the forecast above from CNN, and if you’re in any of these areas, be sure to bundle up!
