Winter winds and ice sheets will bring extreme cold and ice-slick roads to the Midwestern and Eastern United States on Monday. An arctic blast of frigid air has followed a January storm that dumped more than a foot of the snow and sleet across the Northeast, which started melting Sunday. Temperatures fell to single-digits Farhenheit from New York City to Boston and froze melting snow late Sunday and early Monday, said Marc Chenard at the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. Winds up to 30 to 40 miles per hour added possibly deadly wind chill. “This is definitely dangerous, life-and-death kind of weather happening,” Chenard said. “Minnesota and Wisconsin will see temperatures in the negative 20s.” “Boston will be just 3 degrees (Farhenheit) this morning, with wind chills of minus 12 or more,” he said. “New York City and D.C. will be in that same range, maybe hitting the teens later today. It’ll be record or near-record cold.”Published in Daily Times, January 22nd 2019.
