    Monday Morning

    Temperatures soared early this morning from DC to Boston, while Chicago had its first January record low temperature of the 21st century. The cold blast will really be noticeable as it completes its march to the coast this afternoon and tonight.

    The coldest weather in the Northeast will occur from later tonight through Wednesday, then it will start to leave. A weak low pressure area/warm front combination could cause some snow or ice Thursday night or Friday morning then, for the third weekend in a row, it will be milder than it will be during most of the week. This video has more.


    Powerful northwest winds are sending bitterly cold air across the Great Lakes and toward the Northeast states.
