Americans have been fed Republican lies for the past few years including the denial of climate change. We now see and feel reality.

Today the weather made an abrupt change which is undeniable. From 60 degrees in the Northeast today to 30 tomorrow.

While Persistent Heat in cover most of Southern California; A Wintry Mix Shifts to the East Coast with a vengeance and that’s not all.

Hot conditions and gusty winds with elevated fire weather threats will continue across southern California through Sunday. An area of low pressure along a cold front will move to the East Coast with a wintry mix and gusty winds through Sunday night. Very cold wind chills are expected through Sunday morning across portions of the Upper Midwest.

After a spurt of spring-like weather, a powerful cold front will knock temperatures down to below normal and aid in the development of a weak coastal low that will pass well offshore. Light snow and slick conditions are expected tomorrow, so be careful! #NYwx #NJwx #CTwx
