Enough cold air will linger across the midwestern and eastern United States during the latter half of January to increase the chance of snow in areas that have received little so far this season.
Following a complex storm that will bring snow, ice and rain to portions of the Midwest and interior Northeast, another wave of arctic air will sweep southeastward this weekend.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, “In the Midwest, this new blast of arctic air will be as cold as that of the start of this week, but for much of the Northeast it will be the coldest of the season so far.”
Temperatures will struggle to reach zero degrees Fahrenheit for daytime highs on a couple of days over the northern Plains and the Upper Midwest during Sunday to Monday. This same area is likely to experience low temperatures in the minus 20s.
