Polar Vortex, that is. Cold air from the North Pole is invading the Lower 48 resulting in a deep freeze across 2 dozen states. We are talking some serious cold here- 36 below in Crane Lake, MN. and wind chills to 60 below in northeast Montana. Ouch… Record low temperatures are being seen in several other states as well. But there’s good news- the subzero temperatures should disappear tomorrow and may even reach the 20’s and 30’s (above zero!) for our friends in the Great Lakes and Northeast.
