Forecast: Snow, wintry mix to bring unsafe driving conditions Tuesday

Wind, frigid temps early to mid-week

A deep freeze is forecast to hit the U.S. Midwest this week, with snow, brutally cold temperatures and potentially life-threatening wind chill across northern IL and northwest IN by midweek, the National Weather Service said.

A band of rain moving across the country on Tuesday afternoon and evening is expected to turn to snow as it bumps into cold air. "Some of the coldest air in decades will pour in across the Northern Plains, Midwest and Great Lakes with windchills in the -40 to -50 degree range and air temperatures below zero for several days", said Fox News Meteorologist Janice Dean.

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

There will be one silver lining for Chicagoans, however: temperatures will rise to 33 degrees by 10 a.m. Monday, offering a brief respite before they dive back to subzero values, the weather service said.

Northern Mississippi, northern Alabama and parts of Kentucky and Tennessee could also see potential snowfalls during the week, the NWS said.

The slippery driving will continue through Wednesday morning and there is a chance for school delays.

But, what are the current records for cold temperatures in Chicago? This will clear skies and allow temperatures to drop to the upper 20s to low 30s by sunrise Wednesday.

Around Baltimore, lows early Wednesday morning are forecast in the lower 20s, with wind chills in the teens, and temperatures are expected to top out only in the upper 20s Wednesday afternoon.

Even snowplow drivers are having trouble keeping up with conditions Monday.

Eleven major airlines, including American, Delta, United and Southwest, have issued travel warnings for multiple airports throughout the USA affected by the polar vortex, allowing travelers to change their trips with no fee if their flight plans are affected "by severe weather or other uncontrollable events". Cold snaps and the thaws that follow often causes an increase in water main breaks. The Dakotas are grappling with blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said. Officials have issued a travel alert for north-central, northeastern and southeastern North Dakota due to snow and blowing snow. In the state of Georgia, which will host the Super Bowl on Sunday, state offices will be closed on Tuesday in more than 30 counties.
