Frigid temperatures gripped a wide swath of the U.S. Midwest and Northeast on Saturday, as the regions dug out from a deadly snow storm and braced for another blast of dangerous winter weather.
A new round of Arctic air will bring potentially record low temperatures in areas from Montana to Michigan starting this weekend, with the extremely cold air pushing eastward and blanketing the Northeast by early Tuesday, said Bob Oravec, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
It’s going to be cold-cold, ladies and gentlemen: temperatures around zero in the North East, worse than that in the Midwest. Canada is currently having an argument about whether it’s really as cold as Mars right now, but even the killjoys arguing ‘no’ are conceding that it’s bleeping cold out right now. I’m serious: plan accordingly. Because it’s looking like it’s going to get nasty out.
