Good morning. Welcome to the artic. You've been officially temporarily moved to a polar region.
Michigan and the Midwest are stuck in a polar vortex, according to the National Weather Service's Grand Rapids Office. Typically, such an arctic blast -- or wintry hurricane -- only hits northeastern Canada a la Ontario, Quebec and regions further north.
The arctic blast is going to continue its grip on Grand Rapids and West Michigan through Wednesday, the National Weather Service’s Grand Rapids office said Monday afternoon.
Snow and windy conditions are creating near-blizzard conditions and sub-zero temperatures with wind chills in the minus-20 degree range with a winter storm advisory across greater Grand Rapids and West Michigan. Highs are only expected to reach the single digits up to 10 degrees.
Despite some extra efforts, Christmas is a powerless holiday for many in greater Grand Rapids and across West Michigan because of snow, cold and the lingering effects of a weekend ice storm, officials said Tuesday.
More than 152,000 electricity customers of Consumers Energy were without power headed into Tuesday evening.
It’s going to be a powerless Christmas for many households in Grand Rapids and elsewhere across West Michigan because of a weekend ice storm and a continued wintry mix including snow, officials said Monday night.
NASA Flight Engineers Rick Mastracchio and Mike Hopkins are working outside the orbiting International Space Station today (Dec. 21) to fix a bad pump.
They are doing the first in a series of spacewalks to replace a degraded ammonia pump module with one of the station's two external cooling loops that keeps both internal and external equipment cool, according to NASA.
