The northern United States is feeling quite a change this week! An exceptionally cold air mass will dip south, dropping temperatures well-below zero in many cases. The mercury this morning (Tuesday) is already 10 to 30 degrees colder in the Northern Plains than 24 hours ago.

Duluth is already feeling the cold air. Temperatures will continue to drop further into Wednesday, before a rebound later this week.

Chicago has also seen temperatures tumble. After a high near 50 Monday, temperatures will only be in the 20s today (Tuesday). This doesn’t even take into consideration the wind chill. Are you shivering yet?

The cold air won’t stop there. Folks will feel the chill far and wide today (Tuesday). Temperatures are more than 20 degrees colder than average in parts of the Midwest.

Lows by Wednesday morning will fall into the 20s all the way south into Arkansas and Tennessee.

This cold air will meet up with some moisture across the Southeast. That could support snow in some places into Wednesday morning.
