By Tuesday, record cold is possible in the Northeast, Ohio Valley and portions of the South, with highs – highs! – only into the 30s as far south as Alabama.
It could be the coldest Veterans Day on record in cities such as Chicago and Minneapolis, according to the Weather Channel.
“The National Weather Service is forecasting 170 potential daily record cold high temperatures Monday to Wednesday,” tweeted Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman. “A little taste of January in November.”
A cold front will plunge through the northern Plains and upper Midwest Sunday, then into the southern Plains and Ohio Valley, and through most of the East Coast and Deep South by Tuesday, the Weather Channel said.
In addition to the cold, snow may be also in the forecast for parts of the eastern and even southern USA by mid-week.
