On the latest edition of AccuWeather LIVE, we took a look at the return of the polar vortex. Though temperatures will drop, they will not be as cold as the last time this arctic air shot into the United States.

With ski season ramping up, Bernie Rayno and Evan Myers looked at some of the better areas in the country for ski conditions. As part of their 'By the Numbers' segment, they explained some of the conditions behind California's devastating, persistent drought. They addressed some of the questions and comments that fans sent in this week.

Mark Mancuso also answered some fan questions and showed some of the best user-submitted photos from the past week.

With some cold weather on the way, Andrew Baglini explained some of the ways fans can stay warm as we get closer to the first outdoor Super Bowl in the Northeast.
