Next wave of bitter cold to have staying power in midwestern US into end of January

January 25, 2019 Visit USA No Comments Email Email

A fresh round of Arctic air will descend on the midwestern United States late this week, sending the region into a deep freeze through the end of the month.

“In most of the region, this air mass will be colder than the one that moved through last weekend and earlier this week,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson.

High temperatures were held in the teens in Minneapolis and Chicago during that cold wave.

The next round of frigid conditions will reach the northern Plains on Thursday as a cold high pressure system dives southward from Canada.

“Highs in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota will likely stay below zero degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday,” Adamson said.

Gusty winds whipping through the upper Mississippi Valley will make it feel even more harsh outside, with AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures expected to be in the minus teens in Des Moines, Iowa, minus 20s F in Minneapolis and minus 30s in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

“These bitterly cold conditions will spread eastward on Friday, with highs in the single digits in cities such as Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago,” Adamson said.

Highs are typically around 30 degrees Fahrenheit in these cities during late January.

Temperatures are likely to drop below zero for the first time this winter in Chicagoland on Thursday and Friday nights.
