From the Midwest, polar atmosphere continued to hold almost the whole area on Sunday early as portions of northern Minnesota and North Dakota reported wind chills below -50 degrees and Chicago reported that a wind chill of -24 degrees on Sunday morning.
On Monday, wind chills aren't as bad but it's still absolutely freezing across much of the Midwest.
It seems just like the -20's in Minneapolis this morning while at Chicago, it's feeling like 5 levels.
The Arctic atmosphere is locking into position within the Midwest, with no actual substantial warm up in sight.
Furthermore, in the southern border of the Arctic atmosphere is a stalled frontal boundary that's going to cause many weather issues throughout the week.
A fast moving storm will grow today from the central U.S. since it races towards the East Coast as well as as it arrives close to the Northeast from Tuesday, it is going to be just coordinated enough to deliver a spoonful of snow into major neighboring cities.
The burst of snow will probably arrive at the morning of Tuesday and the snow should not have any issue accumulating and although accumulations must be restricted to a few inches, so it will probably cause toxic travel.
The other system will arrive at the Midwest from Wednesday and this one will bring snow from Kansas City to Chicago in addition to a wintry mix from Oklahoma into Kentucky.
Once more accumulations should be somewhat mild but probably just enough to induce effects on roadways in the area.
On Thursday afternoon, this newest round of ice and snow will arrive at the Northeast -- once more to the morning meaning dangerous street conditions are anticipated.
During Thursday, the blend of those systems must bring a broad swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow from Missouri to New England with a couple places likely to exceed 6 inches.
This snowfall prediction is from both systems so lots of folks could see two to three inches and another two to three inches by Thursday -- only enough to cause harmful roads.
Believe it or not, this routine does not appear to change a lot over the upcoming weekend and there'll probably be more chances for snow in these areas.
Even though there's some sign a more coordinated storm might be a problem later this forthcoming weekend, there's not nearly enough arrangement with the prediction models to put the size or extent of future forthcoming snow.
But 1 thing which does appear certain is that the chilly air is that locked in place.
Saturday's wind chill is looking fairly much like the current and this weekend's end chill with a number of the Arctic atmosphere reaching farther south and farther east.
