The Arctic chill has overrun the Upper Midwest and Rockies and the juggernaut is not halting and rolls on. Other parts of the US will see a sharp drop in temperatures courtesy a powerful weather system which is battering Alaska with hurricane-force winds over the weekend. The system has dumped over 3 feet of snow in some places.
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula saw more than 3 feet of snow while Wincosin has seen 18 inches of snow while Minnesota saw more than 16.
Most roads in the Upper Peninsula were covered with snow and slippery making driving especially in the night a nightmare.
Lake-effect snow, mainly in Michigan has been forecast by the National Weather Service through the weekend.
The unusually low temperatures are spreading and the chill is expected to hit the Appalachians and mid-South by Wednesday morning, and the East Coast by Thursday. Billings, Montana which had temperatures in the range of 60s is seeing single digit tempratures by Tuesday.
