Another round of cold temperatures will impact areas from the High Plains into the Great Lakes over the next few days. At sunrise, wind chills fell under 30 below in Montana and North Dakota with temperatures below zero.
Wind Chill Warnings remain in effect over Northeast Montana with Wind Chill Advisories in parts of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.
Temperatures are nearly 30 degrees below average in some areas of Montana. As the cold air moves in from the North, readings are 10 to 20 degrees colder than yesterday. Highs will likely stay below zero in portions of North Dakota.
The first wave of cold air is centered near an area of high pressure moving into the Black Hills. The high will push to the southeast tomorrow and the cold weather will expand across the Plains. Another shot of cold air will move down Thursday night behind a cold front. A second area of high pressure will push into the Upper Midwest on Friday.
Temperatures will likely stay in the single digits in many areas of the Northern Plains through Friday. Colder readings will move into the Great Lakes this weekend, but the coldest air will start to move back into Canada.
