An Arctic blast freezes the Northeast and Upper Midwest to the bone, putting them in a deep freeze. More than ten million people are under wind chill advisories in parts of North Dakota as well as parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, where wind chills could fall as low as -25 to -40 degrees on Monday.

People in parts of New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts are also under wind chill advisories thru Tuesday, when the wind chills will be as low as 35 degrees below zero.

In as little as 10 minutes, “dangerously cold wind chills” could cause frostbite on the skin of people who were outside in them.

This deep freeze will spread across the Northeast by Monday and Tuesday, and it will be very cold. On Tuesday morning, parts of the Northeast and New England could be in the single digits.

The cold air and strong winds will cause a lot of snow to fall downwind of Lake Superior and Lake Ontario.

People in parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the Tug Hill Plateau of New York could have more than a foot of snow on the ground by Tuesday morning.
