Cold Weather Returns From the Plains into the East
Winter-like temperatures have returned to the eastern two-thirds of the nation. The thermometer has been tumbling from the Upper Midwest into the South and along the East Coast. Wind Chills have fallen into the single digits in the Northeast and will drop below zero tonight. A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued from Maine to New York.
Temperatures tonight will plunge to below freezing levels from the Tennessee Valley into the Central Plains. A Freeze Warning has been issued across the region, with a Frost Advisory into Mississippi.
A strong area of high pressure has dropped across most of the East and will dominate the weather into this weekend. Temperatures will be slow to recover Saturday and warm only slightly on Sunday.
