All 50 states saw at or below freezing temperatures on Tuesday, November 18th, and the very next day many more record low temperatures and record low minimums, as well as record low maximums were set, reports WeatherBELL. Tuesday morning set the coldest it has been in November since 1976, which was 38 years ago! More than 85% of the surface area of the Lower-48 reached or fell below freezing temps. It is reported that 2/3 of the eastern United States will shatter decades-long and in some cases, century-long records.
The past several days have dropped off immensely in temp, down to 10 degrees C below climate normal, which is more anomalous than even the polar vortex. On Monday, November 17th, more than half of the Lower-48 was blanketed in snow, in some places being measured in FEET!
And according to WeatherBELL, “Cold air pushes east thru Wednesday with a reinforcing shot of Arctic air with the origin from the North Pole & Siberia to arrive Thursday in the Great Lakes. Any relief is 5-6 days away as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit will struggle to rise above freezing until Saturday, November 22.”

Thermal underwear will be key for comfort!
With this kind of weather, people need to cover up properly with thermal underwear as an undergarment. Thermal underwear will retain the heat from a persons body while wicking away moisture that can cause a person to become cold. Keeping the core of your body warm is the best way to keep your extremities warm because then the blood flowing to the hands and feet is already warm. Mongol Winter Wear’s warm core thermal underwear does just the trick. It is the thermal underwear that has the thickest inner fleece. These thermal underwear have a two layer design that will give you the benefit that most men’s clothing or women’s clothing for winter wear do not have. Made from nylon and a small amount of bamboo fiber, the warm core line from Mongol Winter Wear is a clothing design that surpasses the most stringent tests for thermal underwear. Even in the coldest weather, a person can wear these as an outer layer. The fleece lining as a separate inner layer is the secret. Most thermal underwear uses the weave to create the air pocket that keeps the body warm, trapping the air between the body and the outer layer of the garment. However, the garment is normally one piece and therefore, the natural transition of heat through the thermal underwear takes place. With Mongol Winter Wear’s Warm Core design, there is a second layer that acts as a boundary and prevents heat loss from the inner layer. This outer layer of the thermal underwear is a finer weave and prevents heat loss, while still allowing moisture to pass through. Mongol Winter Wear’s Warm Core design is so soft that you will not itch or “bunch up” like most thermal underwear, even after hours of use. These thermal underwear are so soft you hardly notice they are on you, yet they also fit snug on your body and so, these thermal underwear will also firm up and form fit to your body while shaping your legs, thighs and chest. Thermal underwear is the only way to maintain this kind of heat in such cold. Make sure you are warm enough this winter, buy a pair of Warm Core today,.
