Rain Tuesday, colder temperatures by midweek

Rain Tuesday, colder temperatures by midweek

It will come in as mainly snow but change over to rain in most of eastern MA overnight.

There's cold, and then there's COLD!

Absurdly cold weather is about to grip much of the United States, trapping millions of Americans in subzero temperatures and bringing "dangerous to impossible travel conditions". Colder and drier air follows overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday.

But forecasters warn the most risky weather is yet to come: frigidly low temperatures that the region hasn't seen in a quarter century. Snow continues to fall.

Up to four inches could fall in western counties and wind chills could be a low as negative 10 degrees in Newland and negative 3 degrees in Burnsville, says the NWS.

Another formidable bout of snowfall is heading to the Chicago area Sunday night, possibly dumping 4 to 7 inches of snow before temperatures are expected to plummet to risky levels the region hasn't seen in years.

Parts of northern Minnesota may see air temperatures below -30°F and wind chills of -55 to -60°F (-61°C).

In all likelihood, this week will deliver the coldest temperatures and highest wind chill values of the winter.

Meanwhile, even more extreme and unsafe cold is expected this week from the Northern Plains through the Great Lakes, with lows in the negative 30s and 40s and wind chills as low as the negative 60s from Wednesday through Thursday.

Temperatures look like they will bottom out around the middle of the week before they start to warm up around the weekend. "Average temperatures may be almost 15 degrees below normal Wednesday and Thursday which could cause significant impacts".

In Minnesota, numerous cities declared snow emergencies, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. The designation prompts agencies to offer free meals for senior citizens, encourage homeless people to seek shelter and help residents apply for utility bill assistance.

With the lack of this deep of cold so far this winter, the Great Lakes remain unfrozen, opening the door for lake-effect snow as the icy air pours in. "If the frost drives down, it can break water mains". They are expected to return to normal by Sunday.

In addition to the harsh cold, heavy snow already hammered the upper Midwest and Great Lakes area on Monday, resulting in "dangerous to impossible travel conditions", according to CNN.
