Coldest temperatures in decades expected in Midwest

Coldest temperatures in decades expected in Midwest

"Most of what falls (snow or rain) will occur Tuesday night".

A wind chill warning has already been issued for Chicago and Northwest Indiana Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

Minneapolis Public Schools announced there would be no classes through Wednesday. Cities such as Fargo, Minneapolis, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Detroit will all see the brunt of the brutally cold temperatures by Wednesday and Thursday. The last time Notre Dame closed in response to weather was five years ago.

Freezing Tuesday night through Wednesday morning is a concern with the leftover moisture on the roads and temperatures in the low 20s.

Wind chill would make temperatures feel more like -30 to -65 degrees Fahrenheit, according to NWS.

Currently, at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, temperatures are minus 29 degrees with a windchill of minus 52 degrees, making some parts of the USA colder than the South Pole.

"If you live up in the Arctic Circle, you'd say this is pretty normal". At O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, the high temperature Wednesday is expected to be negative 14 degrees (negative 25 degrees Celsius), which would break a record set on January 18, 1994.

The bitter cold is prompting emergency warming shelters to be set up across the Midwest to the Northeast for those in need.

Schultz has authored a new book called From the Ground Up , which is a memoir and is set to be released this week. He added that he would be open to fresh ideas because he was "not in bed with any political party".

"Historic cold, unprecedented cold, these are all adjectives you could use to describe this", said NBC meteorologist Kathryn Prociv, adding, "These are some of the coldest temperatures an entire generation has ever felt, talking about the millennials", Prociv said.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel urged residents to check on their neighbors and take safety precautions.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said city agencies are making sure homeless people are in shelters or offered space in warming buses. Areas of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and OH are under a wind chill watch, while parts of Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and West Virginia have been placed under winter weather advisories.

In the Northeast, frigid air is expected to sweep through tonight, bringing the coldest temperatures of 2019 so far, according to AccuWeather. "Where the polar vortex goes, so goes the cold air", said Judah Cohen, a winter storm expert for Atmospheric Environmental Research. Showers will start as rain but as the temperature drops behind the cold front, it will likely change over to snow.

Snowplow drivers were having trouble keeping up with conditions in Wisconsin and Minnesota, where up to 14 inches (35.5 centimeters) of snow is expected.

The Chicago suburb of Palatine saw more than 5 inches (13 centimeters) Monday morning as the storm created slick roadways.

Most county-run offices are closed in Milwaukee, Dane, Rock, Waukesha, Columbia and Washington counties.
