The week, the majority of the United States will experience a deep freeze thanks to a Polar Vortex, which will bring a wave of cold air that normally spins in the atmosphere over the North Pole down into the Great Lakes. Colder and drier air follows overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday.

"Chicago will likely see its coldest readings in almost 25 years, with lows approaching the all-time record of 27 below and a daytime high on Wednesday of around 15 below", Hennen said. The storm has already set records for cold in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and parts of Canada.

Bitter cold is forecast to impact the Upper Midwest by Wednesday and Thursday.

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.

A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that cold weather is responsible for the majority of weather-related fatalities. Parts of northern Minnesota may see air temperatures below minus 30 and wind chills of minus 55 to minus 60.

High temperatures will be limited to the 50s on Wednesday and Thursday. A wind chill of minus-20 degrees can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes.

We have another very cold start on Friday but then the recovery begins.

It's back...the dreaded and much hyped "Polar Vortex" is once again making headlines. "There's no sugarcoating it, the weather will get extremely cold", tweeted the Weather Service office serving the Twin Cities.

Temperatures are slated to remain below freezing through Friday and Saturday.

The Charlotte region has a 40 percent chance of snow Tuesday night, mainly before 11 p.m., with a predicted low of 22 degrees and wind chills in the teens, said the National Weather Service Monday morning.

The US Midwest was digging out Monday from a snowstorm that closed schools and businesses, as it braced for "extreme and dangerous" sub-zero temperatures forecast to arrive overnight. Madison, Wisconsin's temperature sank to a record-crushing -23°F (-30°C) on Saturday, its lowest temperature in almost 23 years. Maximum temperature 6 °C.
