A blast of arctic air is poised to plunge temperatures for more than 200 million Americans across the continental United States this week, with New York City predicting the coldest daily temperatures since 1873.
“Hundreds of record low temperatures are in jeopardy across the eastern two-thirds of the United States as a robust wave of Arctic air brings dangerously cold conditions more reminiscent of mid-January than November,” reports Accuweather.
“The cold will continue to shift south and east into Wednesday, finally encompassing more than half of the country,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.
The cold weather created travel chaos across the Midwest, with one plane dangerously sliding off the runway during landing at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.
