More than 232 million people shivered in temperatures of areas 32 degrees (freezing) or lower yesterday morning.
“Freeze warnings continue into the Deep South, with freezing temperatures in Florida this morning,” said CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen yesterday morning.

“Hundreds of cold temperature records have been set over the last few days, including some dating back over a century to 1911,” Hennen said. The freezing temperatures made it as far south as Houston, New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle, he said.
By Thursday morning, the Mid-Atlantic region to Maine could suffer record-low temps, warned CNN meteorologist Michael Guy.
