8 Die From Extreme Cold in Midwest and Northeast

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Thursday, January 31, 2019

As cold weather continues to impact the Midwest and U.S. Northeast, there have been eight deaths reported as a direct result of the cold.

Officials closed schools and universities throughout the Midwest.

It is so cold, the postal service has suspended service in several states.

More than 3,000 flights have been canceled as of Thursday morning.

Temperatures are finally rebounding as the Arctic airmass moves away from the north and eastern U.S.

By Friday, temperatures in the Upper Midwest will finally re-bound to well above zero--with high temperatures making it into the teens and low 20s. By Saturday, high temperatures will be in the 30s and even low 40s. Additionally, the central Plains will see temperatures in the low 60s--which is nearly 20-25 degrees above normal.
