Record-Breaking Cold Temperatures Will Hit Most of the Country Next Week

South winds will be sustained at about 10 to 20 miles per hour with some higher gusts possible. We'll see highs in the 30s on Monday but temperatures struggle to even hit that 30° mark for both Tuesday and Wednesday.

By Tuesday, record cold is possible in the Northeast, Ohio Valley and parts of the South - with highs only getting into the 30s as far south as Alabama, according to the Weather Channel. Temperatures fall through the 50s all day and drop into the 40s after sunset.

Another cold front will move through our area by Monday and it will bring some more rain showers to our area.

The first snow of the season fell across Central New York Thursday with the same predictable results: slippery roads, auto crashes and kids dreaming of a snow day on Friday. Behind a storm that brought snow to the Great Lakes and Northeast, allowing temperatures to reach their lowest point this season Friday night. Back east, it's still a little chilly across the Hi-Line and in northeastern Montana as we still have little bit of cold air jammed up in that region.

To make matters worse, as the cold air runs over the still relatively mild Lake Michigan, lake-effect snow will also break out.

Hewson added, however, that Tiffany shareholders were "unlikely to accept this initial bid" and could hold out for more. A story in the Financial Times yesterday said that LVMH has made a $14.5 billion offer to purchase the retailer.

Rain is moving in from the east this morning and showers will continue through the early evening.

The cold air did not stop in the northern Plains as near-freezing temperatures followed a cold front sinking south into Texas through Wednesday night.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with rain/snow showers. The most impactful period in the current outlook would be the first half of Tuesday. She added that people can use plastic to cover plants to protect them, but it's important to remove the plastic early in the morning.
