JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – There's cold, and then there's COLD! Here in Jacksonville we could see a light freeze by midweek but the Midwest will see temperatures plummet more than 30 degrees below freezing.
Temperatures across Canada are currently more than 30° below Monday morning and it is set to break south resulting in the coldest arctic outbreak in at least two decades in parts of the Midwest.
Only a piece of the chill will reach north Florida Wednesday.
Extreme and dangerous cold will spill south Tuesday with lows in the -30s and -40s from the Northern Plains through the Great Lakes. Wind chills in these areas drop as low as the -60s Wed-Thu!
The deep south is bracing for the snow in Atlanta where a narrow band will swipe the city Tuesday.
The blast arrives before fans flock to Atlanta this week for the Super Bowl game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Temperatures do rebound for Sunday’s game to 60°.
While Jacksonville won’t see snow, Tuesday evening will see some rain. Ice on the road should not be a problem over southern Georgia should due to puddles drying up before temperatures reach freezing overnight.
