    Thursday morning

    The powerful storm that dumped heavy snow from Illinois to northern New England is departing today. A blast of arctic air will make it feel like January today. However, mild air will charge across the Plains today and start to take effect in the Middle and North Atlantic states. Here is today's video. For next week, there is great uncertainty about a possible storm and what it might do.

    This series of maps shows how the extreme cold today in the Northeast is replaced by milder air tomorrow and Saturday.


    In the dark blue areas, afternoon temperatures will be only in the teens. In the lightest green area, it will reach the 50s.
