Cold Air in the Midwest and Ohio Valley
This week in the Midwest and Ohio Valley there is the potential for record-breaking cold. An upper-level low pressure system has shifted to the east, with colder air filtering in behind it. This is resulting in a significant temperature drop in the northern Plains, Midwest, and Ohio Valley.
Bismarck, Duluth and Minneapolis will struggle to warm up much this afternoon in the wake of the cold morning, even with sunshine. Many areas in the Upper Midwest are 15 to 20 degrees colder than average.
Temperatures in the morning across the northern Plains and Upper Midwest are expected to drop to record-breaking daily lows through Wednesday.
As a result, frost and freeze alerts have been issued for the Ohio Valley. We are concerned for agriculture as growing season is underway already in some spots.
